The first new content has been released for the game in the form of powerful new weapons like the Rare Shotgun and new clothing items such as the Diamondback snake hat.


New Weapons – More Stopping Power

Some weapons have been released into the game today.

Please note that Rockstar Games does not label which items are new and which are not, and as such I may list some items that may not necessarily be new to Red Dead Online, while I may have missed some that are.

Not all are as simple to find as they really should be.

Rare Shotgun – Style with Substance

First of all, if you open the Wheeler and Rawson catalogue, you will notice a new “Unique Weapons” available for selection. In here you will find the Rare Shotgun.

Red Dead Online Rare Shotgun

The Rare Shotgun is a shorter version of the D.D Packenbush Longarm Double Barrel Shotgun, and can be customized at the Gunsmith when purchased for $258.

Stats for the Rare Shotgun are as follows:

  • Damage – 65%
  • Range – 40%
  • Fire Rate – 65%
  • Accuracy – 35%

Jawbone Knife – A Savage Weapon Indeed

The Jawbone Knife is a jawbone handled knife containing a sharpened piece of flint. It is the same weapon that is available in Red Dead Redemption II story mode.

This knife cannot be purchased from a weapons vendor and must be purchased from the fence at St. Denis.

A lot of clothing has been added with this update as well as more customization options for existing clothing such as colour patterns.

There is a lot of new content in this brand new Red Dead Online BETA update to version 1.06.

From the onslaught of clothing items that have been released today and set for roll out over the coming weeks, such as stylish hats, jackets and gloves to new weapons like the Rare Shotgun, we have gotten just a little taste of what Red Dead Online updates may be like.

The new game modes, Fool’s Gold and Fishing Challenges especially are likely to be very popular as a great distraction from the story and just hunting and fishing.

The anti griefing methods and incentives that Rockstar have implemented in this update are sure to be welcomed.

The addition of NPC Bounty Hunters might quell some unsavory players, however this will all depend on how tough the Bounty Hunters are, and whether the players are even bothered buy this. On the other hand, a decrease in detectable blip distance on the radar is great news, as griefers may no longer cross vast distances just to kill you.

You can see full details of this week’s Red Dead Online events at the official Rockstar Games Update Page:

I would love to hear what you think of this week’s discounts in this Red Dead Online update, and what you think is coming next. So, please share your thoughts on RDO in the comments section below.

The coming weeks could see some big updates coming to the RDO BETA version ahead of a full version release sometime this Spring, so keep playing as it is highly likely that Rockstar Games will be rewarding players for taking part in important parts of the BETA.

Thanks for reading and have fun in Red Dead Online.

Take care for now, Michael – Editor/Owner, ChartX Games.
