This week's Red Dead Online patch notes are short and sweet. There's a whole bunch of Role XP up for grabs, so now's the time to try out a new Role or power-level your favorite. 

The bonuses start with souped-up free roam events which are dishing out 25% more Character and Role XP. These will only be available to players who've reached rank four in their respective role, but they're well worth it. Here's the full list:

Other activities will also yield bonus XP this week. Frontier Pursuits will award 2,000 XP delivered as 1,000-XP bonuses via the Offers & Rewards menu. This bonus will be available from legendary bounties for Bounty Hunters, sell missions for Traders, and the Gold Panners collection for Collectors. All Moonshiner story missions will also grant 2,000 Moonshiner XP. 

To round things out, Rockstar's bringing out a new Free Aim mode for a week. Last Stand is a classic free-for-all shootout, and it'll be available through Monday, January 20.
