Upcoming Red Dead Online Update Will Add Three New Roles

Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online players have been enjoying their time in the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2, and while there hasn’t been a plethora of content added recently, that doesn’t mean there isn’t more coming. In fact, an inbound update will be adding three unique roles for players to assume during their playthrough.

It’s unknown exactly when the update will be arriving, but the devs at Rockstar Games recently detailed the three new roles that will be arriving in Red Dead Online. The Bounty Hunter, Trader, and Collector will be available when the update launches.

You can read more about each Red Dead Online role in their descriptions below:

Bounty Hunter

“Become a Bounty Hunter for a life of constant action on both sides of the law. A licensed Bounty Hunter can track down targets and capture – or kill, depending on how honorable you are in your pursuits. Occasionally, a nearby player with a high enough bounty can also be a designated target. Progression will unlock special items like a reinforced lasso for extra-tough targets, as well as intricate gun-spinning tricks and advanced tracking skills like the ability to use Eagle-Eye while sprinting, galloping on horseback and many other special skills, items and upgrades.”


“The life of a Trader is perfect for burgeoning capitalists as you establish and develop a business from your Camp. Thanks to your trusty companion Cripps’ knowledge of furs, skins and butchery, you’ll be able to take on new opportunities to collect materials and produce valuable goods to sell. Increasing your skill as a Trader unlocks the ability to upgrade your Camp with a Weapons Locker, Stew Pot and even allow any canine companion to warn of impending attacks on the camp. As your business expands, you can gain new skills, improve your satchel or add new assets to your business like hunting wagons to bring in bigger hauls and much more.”


“A Collector loves to explore the world for rare and valuable items. Look for a mystic travelling saleswoman in the wild to  get started down the Collector’s path, searching for lost jewelry, rare arrowheads and other treasures to sell as individual pieces or highly valuable sets. As you progress, you will gain access to tools that help your search including Refined Binoculars, a Horse Lantern and even a Metal Detector, as well as gaining additional skills to help you seek and discover the world’s greatest rarities.”

The devs note that these won’t be the only additions arriving with the upcoming Red Dead Online update. “Substantial, across the board changes are being made to combat and movement to allow for a more responsive control system that still feels natural,” the post reads. Needless to say, Red Dead Online is going to be getting quite the makeover with this update.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
