Just in, Hot Off the Wire: New Freelance Prospects on the Frontier

Three New Solo Play Missions in Red Dead Online

Calling all outworkers and hired guns roaming the frontier in Red Dead Online: make sure to check your unopened parcels as three new solo play missions are now available via telegram. Coming down the wire from a mysterious source known only as “J,” A New Source of Employment missions are for willing hands to complete dangerous tasks and assignments for monetary reward.

A One Horse Deal

The Braithwaites are negotiating a deal to buy a prized, untamed white Arabian racehorse from Emerald Ranch. Your task will be to intercept the deal, tame the unpredictable beast, an deliver the steed to your contact. This is a highly valued horse, so expect guards to give pursuit.

Rich Pickings

Rumor has it that the mayor of Saint Denis is busy lining his pockets with seized jewels smuggled into the States. The Mayor keeps his stash in his tightly guarded manor — break in, snatch the gems, and get back out alive.


A wagon is making its way out of Brittlebrush Trawl, requiring a skilled individual to provide backup against attackers and roadblocks en route. Whether you escort on horseback or ride shotgun is up to you, but if the driver dies it’s on you to get the wagon to its destination by any means necessary — and don’t ask too many questions about the cargo.

Each new mission features three difficulty levels and will become increasingly challenging with each replay. To launch A New Source of Employment, check your mailbox at any local Post Office or your Camp Lockbox. And for all lone frontier explorers, these three missions are solo play only. View the Telegram in your Satchel to bring up any and all relevant information before setting out. And keep an eye out for new missions in the future.
