This Month in Red Dead Online: Halloween Over the Frontier, New All Hallows Call to Arms Locations and more.
A heavy veil hangs over the frontier this month as the seasons change and an eerie cold sets in. New reports tell of cults performing gruesome rituals, while enclosures and sentries complain of rabid animals and supernatural presences.
New Hardcore Telegram mission coming October 18th
Keep an eye on your mailbox at the local Post Office or Camp Lockbox for a new Telegram later this month. Ike Skelding has gotten wind of a 7th generation cult performing a sacrilegious ritual to summon the dead and bring back their dead prophet from the other side.
Investigate the rumors and take on a new Halloween Hardcore Telegram mission starting October 18th False Hopes & Prophecy. All of Skelding’s Hardcore Telegram missions will reward brave participants with triple Gold, RDO$, and XP through October 31.
The Halloween Pass 2 returns
The Halloween Pass 2 will be temporarily resurrected through October 31. All players who have previously registered can pick up their progress where they left off. Meanwhile, new members can sign up and earn exclusive rewards, which are spread across 15 ranks. Think masks to conceal your identity, garments stained with the blood of past crimes, and accessories that terrify your victims.
In addition, all owners of the Halloween Pass 2 who unlock each of the 15 ranks – including those who already completed all ranks last year – will be rewarded with the Hired Gun Kit: a pack containing the Fierro Bandana, bundles of ammunition and consumables, and Capitale worth 5 Gold Bars. All rewards and offers will be delivered within 72 hours of completion.
