Red Dead Online – Blood Money Summer Update

There’s a lot to look forward to in the upcoming Red Dead Online update, including new clothing, returning items, new crimes, and even Nvidia DLSS support for those with RTX GPUs.

One of the main features of the new Blood Money update is the new Quick Draw Club pass. This will replace the Outlaw Pass and cost 25 Gold Bars at launch. Rockstar has revealed that the Quick Draw Club Pass will grant players the ability to unlock the following items:

  • Dutch’s Redcliff Outfit
  • The Whitchurch Cattleman Revolver Variant
  • The Rushword Shirt
  • The Fircroft Hat
  • Up to 25 Gold Bars and More

The Quick Draw Club Pass will release in four parts during the duration of the Blood Money update.

As well as a new pass, players will also be able to earn rewards if they’re willing to do some dirty work for Guido Martelli. According to the Rockstar Games Newswire, a new type of work will be introduced in Blood Money known as Crimes.

The crimes in question will range from cloak-and-dagger coach holdups to multi-stage robberies which can include kidnapping, debt collections, and more. These crimes can be completed alone or with your squad.

If players can accumulate enough Capitale for Martelli, they will then gain access to Opportunities. According to Rockstar, these Opportunities are to stifle a rising Lemoyne senator who is disrupting Bronte operations throughout the region. When a player discovers an opportunity, it will reveal various approaches to the task at hand.

There are 3 opportunities available in Blood Money, with the first available on July 13th. The remaining 2 opportunities will release at a later date.
