Red Dead Online patch notes: new Arsonist Legendary Bounty and Role-specific rewards

The latest Red Dead Online patch notes cover a new Legendary Bounty for all the Bounty Hunters as well as new rewards for all three Roles. You'll also be able to take advantage of discounted Role items and ammunition, so this would be an excellent time to experiment with a new Role.

The latest of the Red Dead Online Legendary Bounties targets Cecil C. Tucker, "a known arsonist and murderer wanted for burning down homes in the slums of St. Denis." This ne'er-do-well was last seen in Fort Brennand, which is just north of St. Denis. You can grab Tucker's bounty from any bounty board, and once completed, you can replay it at a higher difficulty. 

Bounty Hunters will get five Tracking Arrows this week, which should help them take down Tucker and future Legendary targets. Likewise, Traders are getting five Potent Predator Bait and five Potent Herbivore Bait to help them secure valuable kills. Collectors will get three Collectible Coins to add to their, uh, collection. Additionally, all Roles can earn a new hat by completing a three-day Daily Challenge streak. 

The Role bonuses don't end there. All Novice Role items will be 25% off for a limited time, including such staples as the Bounty Hunter's reinforced lasso, the Collector's field shovel, and the Trader's stew pot. All rifle, shotgun, repeat, revolver, and pistol ammo, including specialty rounds, will also be 50% off. If you've linked your Twitch Prime and Rockstar Social Club accounts, you'll receive an additional 10% off these items. 

A few platform-specific bonuses round out the patch notes. PS4 players with active PlayStation Plus subscriptions will receive an exclusive Killiman Vest if they log in before November 4, while Xbox One players will get access to a spread of new ability cards, emotes, and clothing options this week.
