Rockstar Games recently dropped a new content update for Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component. The update adds new gameplay modes, weapons, events, and more. And those playing it this weekend will get some free stuff.
In a tweet posted by the official Rockstar Games account, the publisher announced that players will receive “fire arrows, high velocity ammo, and more, just by participating in the ongoing Red Dead Online Beta.” Players only need to get to the camp’s lockbox or visit any post office to collect the rewards. Hop to it, cowboys and cowgirls.
Receive a free care package this week including Fire Arrows, High Velocity Ammo and more, just by participating in the Red Dead Online Beta.
Visit your camp’s lockbox or any post office across the five states to collect.

With the implementation of the new content update, Rockstar Games brought back a weapon from Red Dead Redemption: the Evans Repeater, a long-range rifle holstered in John Marston’s weapon wheel during the events of the first game. Fool’s Gold, a PvP mode where players adorn golden armor, also comes packaged in Red Dead Online’s new update. That’s just one many Free Roam events where the lawless can gain some extra experience and cash. As outlined in an announcement post on the official Rockstar Games website, the full list of items added to this weekend’s free care package is below.
- 60x High-Velocity Pistol Ammo
- 60x High-Velocity Repeater Ammo
- 2x Fire Bottles
- 8x Fire Arrows
- 2x Jolly Jack’s
- 2x Potent Horse Medicine
- 1x Lake Lure
In our Red Dead Redemption 2 review we said that, while it features “some frustrating systems and a predictable mission structure,” the game is “an excellent prequel, but it’s also an emotional, thought-provoking story in its own right, and it’s a world that is hard to leave when it’s done.”
