As with most online games, you'll constantly be picking up XP for everything you do in Rockstar's western epic, but as you make your way through the levels you may be wondering what Red Dead Online rank unlocks you'll receive as you progress. There's a ton of weapons, ammo, abilities, clothing, horses, and much more which you'll gain access to as you level up your character in Red Dead Online, and it can be difficult to keep track of everything across all the different menus with so much going on. That's why we're here to help, as our guide to all the Red Dead Online rank unlocks will show you how much XP is required to max out each level, and what items you'll open up by completing it.

It should be noted that although these Red Dead Online rank unlocks will make the listed items available, you'll still need to go and purchase them to actually add them to your inventory ready for use, so don't get too excited until you have enough RDO$ in your account. Also, the listing below is based on players using a male character – although there's plenty of crossover, female characters do have some different clothing and outfit options which replace certain male clothing unlocks. For more details, take a look through the appropriate section of the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue.

Read on for details of everything you can unlock, and if you want to access them sooner then we also have a guide for how to earn XP fast in Red Dead Online.
