There’s high reward for high risk on the frontier. Taking on “A Tough Business” Hardcore Telegram Missions will deal out triple the usual payday of RDO$ and XP throughout the month of April.

These differ from regular Telegram Missions in that you won’t have any aim assistance to guide you, and your foes will be tougher, more accurate with their shots, and not visible on your radar. Test your mettle, aim, determination, and will to survive and you’ll be rewarded accordingly.

To launch Telegram Missions, including “A Tough Business,” visit your local Postmaster or Camp Lockbox and collect the Telegrams sent from “J.” Open the Documents section of your Satchel, and choose from the available Missions.

Weekly Telegram Mission Bonuses

2X RDO$ and XP on Blood Money Opportunities

Read the “Letter from M” in your Satchel and visit Guido Martelli to get acquainted with the criminal underworld.
