Red Dead Online beta tweaked after first week

Rockstar Games has tweaked the Red Dead Online beta after feedback from players.

“Today we are starting to implement the first set of adjustments to the game including changes specifically geared towards creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions,” Rockstar advised.

Those changes include:

  • Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
  • Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until Monday, December 10th to reach all eligible players.
  • Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.

Additionally, Rockstar advised that it is working on more bug fixes to stop players being kicked from sessions.

Finally, as a thanks for playing the beta, any player who has participated in the Red Dead Online beta before 7pm AEDT today will receive a gift of RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars. “Gifts should start arriving today and will hit all eligible players by Friday, December 14th,” Rockstar confirmed.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on Xbox One and PS4.
