Red Dead Online: Explorer Care Package, New Clothing and More

Plus: The Benefits of Connecting Social Club with Twitch Prime

This week's Red Dead Online update rewards the adventurous with the Explorer Care Package and introduces the menacing red-tinted Durham Coat. Players who link their Rockstar Games Social Club accounts to Twitch Prime will also get unique benefits now and into the future. Read on to learn more.

In Red Dead Online, fortune shines on the bold and adventurous who roam the frontier in search of townsfolk to help, game to hunt, herbs to cook and Daily Challenges to complete. With seven new challenges each day of the week, simply complete a total of 10 Daily Challenges before July 16th to earn the Explorer Care Package, full of helpful items that will fuel your adventures across the Old West.

The Explorer Care Package includes 60 Poison Arrows -­ deadly arrows with poisoned tips typically crafted using an Arrow, Feather and Oleander Plant after acquiring the Poisoned Arrows Pamphlet. Use these to quickly down man or beast. The package also includes 100 rounds of Varmint Cartridges - .22 caliber rounds designed for smaller animals – such as rabbits - with sure fire performance.

Other helpful items include Thyme, Wild Mint and Oregano, providing a healthy fortification for your Dead Eye, Health and Stamina respectively. Cook them with the Prime Beef Joint or Tender Pork Loin (also included in the package) to create hearty meals that grant a temporary Gold Core. You’ll also get Live Crickets and Live Worms for fishing and 5 tins of Jolly Jack’s that fully restore and slightly fortify your Dead Eye.

The Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue has much to offer outlaws and socialites alike this week.

As far as permanent offerings go, the double-breasted machine sewn red Durham Coat is now available in stores. The Riggs Fringe Coat is a new addition that sports a short cape with layered fringing, while the uncomplicated Fieldwork Hat will keep your head covered from the sun and elements.

Players venturing into the North and bracing for snow can take advantage of returning limited-time offerings and purchase the furry Cossack Hat, while those prone to whimsy might prefer a more fashionable chapeau, like the Gardenia Hat.

All players who link their Social Club account to Twitch Prime and claim their benefits between July 1st and July 19th will receive RDO$300 and the Superior Ammo Bundle, which consists of:
