With the winter chill subsiding and the sun shining with more vigor, nothing’s better than enjoying the arrival of spring out in the great outdoors – virtual great outdoors, obviously. Sunlight can come in the window too, right? With Naturalist bonuses being in the spotlight in Red Dead Online this week, there is no better time to catch some fresh air.
All players with the Naturalist role already unlocked will be treated to a free care package upon logging into Red Dead Online, consisting of 3 Potent Herbivore Bait, 3 Potent Predator Bait, and 3 Special Lake Lures. If you have yet to commit to the path of the Naturalist, you can do so for 5 Gold Bars less than the usual fee, making the Naturalist’s Sampling Kit more affordable.
If you’re already in the biz, you’ll be earning both double RDO$ and Role XP on all the samples you turn in this week, allowing you to turn your bird watching into more than just a hobby. Additionally, if you manage to get any Legendary Animal sample and turn it in, you’ll get a free bonus of 100 Sedative Varmint Rifle rounds and 5 Animal Revivers.
Your equipment is in the need of upgrading? You’re in luck – all you need to do is complete one round of Wildlife Photographer to earn an Offer for 40% off the cost of the Advanced Camera, making that much-needed upgrade easier to swallow. If you’re not in the Naturalist trade out of a sense of conservationism and your morals can stomach Gus MacMillan, hit up his store – you’ll get an Offer for 50% off any Outfit lower than Rank 15 if you craft an item there.
You don’t need to be a Naturalist to make the most of the Fishing Bonuses! Free Roam Fishing Challenges are paying out double cash and XP this week, so make sure you are stocked up on lures. Even if you don’t win, the bonus 50% sell price on all fish will make it worth your while.
This week’s discounts include 30% off on all of Harriet’s tonics, Novice and Promising Naturalist Role Items, all of Gus’ inventory, ironically the Elephant Rifle, and 40% off on all Fishing Rods, Fishing Lures, and Hats.
