Previously, along with announcing Red Dead Online’s exit from Beta phase, Rockstar also revealed three specialist roles through which players will be able to have their own job and way of play in the wild west. Collector, Bounty Hunter and Trader are three main roles for now and more will be available in the future.
According to Rockstar, each specialist is attempting to offer you a new experience within the world of Red Dead Online. You choose Bounty Hunter? Then, you’re going to fight against dangerous gangs and unstoppable criminals. You like trading? Always keep an eye out for valuable skins and popular tools. You want to get rich fast? It’s Collector’s task to explore the outskirts and find rare items. All three roles have been described with more details below:
- Bounty Hunter: Become a Bounty Hunter for a life of constant action on both sides of the law. A licensed Bounty Hunter can track down targets and capture – or kill, depending on how honorable you are in your pursuits. Occasionally, a nearby player with a high enough bounty can also be a designated target. Progression will unlock special items like a reinforced lasso for extra-tough targets, as well as intricate gun-spinning tricks and advanced tracking skills like the ability to use Eagle-Eye while sprinting, galloping on horseback and many other special skills, items and upgrades.
- Collector: A Collector loves to explore the world for rare and valuable items. Look for a mystic travelling saleswoman in the wild to get started down the Collector’s path, searching for lost jewelry, rare arrowheads and other treasures to sell as individual pieces or highly valuable sets. As you progress, you will gain access to tools that help your search including Refined Binoculars, a Horse Lantern and even a Metal Detector, as well as gaining additional skills to help you seek and discover the world’s greatest rarities.
- Trader: The life of a Trader is perfect for burgeoning capitalists as you establish and develop a business from your Camp. Thanks to your trusty companion Cripps’ knowledge of furs, skins and butchery, you’ll be able to take on new opportunities to collect materials and produce valuable goods to sell. Increasing your skill as a Trader unlocks the ability to upgrade your Camp with a Weapons Locker, Stew Pot and even allow any canine companion to warn of impending attacks on the camp. As your business expands, you can gain new skills, improve your satchel or add new assets to your business-like hunting wagons to bring in bigger hauls and much more.
The date for the arrival of specialist roles to Red Dead Online is yet to be known, but Rockstar has promised to bring them into the game soon, along with some notable improvements.
