Virtual cowboys and cowgirls, Rockstar Games has added a bunch of Red Dead Online new content ahead of its big update later this spring. This week’s new addition is Target Races, which is a fast-paced mix of shooting and horse riding.
Red Dead Online Target Racing: All players start out with a bow and arrow – as you race, each target you hit will increase your Horse’s Stamina – but you can also take advantage of strategic pickups along the courses. Ride through Stamina pickups to extend your Horse’s sprinting time or quickly recover from a drained Horse Stamina core. Weapons pickups dole out firearms with limited ammo supplies – use a shotgun blast to quickly and easily takeout a checkpoint target or turn that weapon against your competition. While players can lock-on to checkpoint targets, using weapons against other competitors will require proficiency with free-aim. If you’re trailing behind, ride in your competitor’s slipstream to regenerate Horse Stamina quickly and gain a slight speed boost, or if you’re defending a lead you can kick your competitors to reduce their Horse Stamina levels with a slight chance of being able to knock them down. Launch Target Races from the Landing Page menu, using the Quick Join option or riding to a Featured Series sign post.
PS4 gamers will get early access to Open Target Races. Players will see the Special Series icon appear on the game map.
Lastly, Red Dead Online is dishing out 20 percent boost on all XP earning activities! Players can also take off 25 percent from everything in the Horse Care Section at the Stables and different catalogs the game offers. There’s also new clothes added which are listed below.
- Morning Tail Coat
- Strickland Boots
- Bowyer Boots (Female only)
- Furred Gloves
