Things Red Dead Online Doesn't Tell You

You can send feedback about Red Dead Online directly to Rockstar here.

Red Dead Redemption 2 focuses on the events after a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater.

The upcoming patch will address various bugs in the online world along with rebalancing the in-game economy so that baked beans won't be worth more than gold rings and so on.

Luckily, Rockstar says improvements to Red Dead Online's economy are on the way, with updates scheduled to roll out for the Red Dead Online beta "as early as the end of this week". The stealing of it, the looting of it, the spending of it on irresponsible amounts of booze.

Those hoping to be the most gun-rich gunslingers in town are also hindered by the necessity of dipping into their savings for things such as ammunition and camp maintenance costs. Rockstar also thanks fans for their feedback and encourages players to submit more via their website.


Rockstar has now acknowledged the problems with Red Dead Online's economy, stating on Twitter that it is working on getting the economy in a better place "to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun".

Red Dead Online will need other things to replace the things that made the single-player experience so immersive. "You get in between 0.02 and 0.04 (0.02 gold bars = 2 nuggets) from series (deathmatch, races, etc.) which take 10 mins each or less", the Reddit user said.

Another redditor, Sinful_One, reached out to Rockstar to question the rate at which they were earning currency, and the reply didn't do much to quell the ire of the community.

Though Rockstar hasn't provided a time frame for the balance changes to take place, nor any details on exactly what they will entail, it's reassuring to know that a fix is coming.
