With a Halloween event that challenges players to face otherworldly threats, Red Dead Online is getting ready to celebrate the spookiest time of the year. In Red Dead Online’s seasonal All Hallows’ Call to Arms activities, players can defend the freeholds of Armadillo, Butcher Creek, Shady Belle, and Bolger Glade from frightening adversaries. Tricks, goodies, and the Halloween Pass 2 are also available this week for those who don’t mind the dark.
This isn’t the first time the Red Dead franchise has dabbled with the eerie, but this seasonal event goes a little farther than the occasional zombie. Players that engage in any All Hallows’ Call to Arms mode will receive double the usual RDO$, Gold, and XP as part of the event. Making it to the 10th wave will earn you 2,000 Club XP, which you may use on the Halloween Pass 2.
This week, the seasonally fitting Dead of Night featured series, in which four teams compete for kills in a fight against the never-ending flood of The Dead, will also provide double awards. Players that complete any Dead of Night mode will receive a Reward in the form of a free Ability Card.
The Night Stalker Mask will be available to Red Dead Online players in both seasonal modes, allowing them to exceed the limitations of humanity and access otherworldly abilities. However, players should exercise caution when using it, as such strength usually comes at a cost.
For a limited time, players can investigate Madam Nazar’s traveling storefront, which will be selling six terrifying Halloween masks. The Slaughter Mask, Creature Mask, Horror Mask, Swing Mask, Freak Mask, and Masquerade Mask are among the new goods available, but they’re far from the only ones. In addition, players’ inventory contains 10 Snowberger Candies and five Chocolate Bars.
Finally, the Halloween Pass 2 is a one-time-only upgrade that includes 15 ranks of goodies, including extra masks to hide players’ identities, bloodstained clothing pieces, and horrifying accessories. All players who own the Red Dead Online Halloween Pass 2 this week will be rewarded with a free Stable Shirt and a select Shirt up to Rank 15, and all players who own the Halloween Pass 2 this week will be rewarded with a free Stable Shirt and a choice Shirt up to Rank 15.
