Red Dead Online adds Moonshiners frontier pursuit, and care packages for PC

Rockstar Games has made two announcements for Red Dead Online, one concerning a new frontier pursuit and another in regard to care packages for PC players due to the game not running properly. The brand new frontier pursuit specialist role is the Moonshiner path, which basically means you can create alcohol in the world of Red Dead Online. Illegally, of course. The role will be available from December 13th, and is suited for players who have engaged with the Trader path.

To activate the Moonshiner role players will need to have either completed a sell mission as a Trader or reached level 5 in that pathway progression. Once that is done players will be invited to meet with bootlegger Maggie Fike who will help you get set up as long as you help her out with some missions. Players will be able to get a Moonshiner shack and as progression is made new recipes will become available, as well as being able to open a speakeasy to serve the locals the illicit booze. It’s not going to be a cakewalk to get there as there will be rival operations to take out and you’ll need to watch out for the law.


Now, onto the care packages for PC players. These will be awarded to all those who have played Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC since launch, and the offer will last through the holiday period. The care package for Red Dead Online will include the following items:

  • 100x Revolver Express Ammo
  • 100x Pistol Express Ammo
  • 100x Repeater Express Ammo
  • 100x Rifle Express Ammo
  • 100x Shotgun Slugs
  • 20x Shotgun Incendiary Buckshot Slugs
  • 20x Fire Arrows
  • 20x Poison Throwing Knives
  • 20x Volatile Fire Bottles
  • 10x Potent Miracle Tonic – fully restores Health, Stamina and Dead Eye and Fortifies moderately
  • 3x Horse Reviver – revives Horse from severe injury and moderately restores its Health
  • 10x Minty Big Game – fully restores all Cores and yields a Gold Health Core
  • 20x Baked Beans – moderately restores Health Core and Stamina Core

All PC players also get Prieto Poncho for free and later on in the month another care package will arrive as well as a Marino Bandolier and an off-hand holster
