Someone Has Worked Out A Way To Make $300 Per Hour In Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online has been getting a lot of schtick from fans for its skewed economy and focus on microtransactions, but not everyone has struggled to bring in the big bucks.

A Reddit user by the name of SheReallySaidIt has posted the following explanation to the r/reddeadredemption subreddit, teaching others how to take advantage of the game and earn up to $300 PER HOUR.

That’s a lot of cash!

Check out the post below for details – but if you try this yourself, be aware that Rockstar’s probably going to be patching this sooner rather than later…

Right now, using more traditional methods of moneymaking can end up sucking up a lot of your time thanks to the high prices and low return on missions.

The game features two monetary tiers in the forms of either cash or gold bars. A typical mission could earn you about $4, or potentially around 0.01 of a gold bar. In theory, you could sink hours into the game without earning so much as a gold bar.

In RDO at the moment, it actually costs more to buy a can of baked beans than it does to sell a looted gold ring.

In a post on Rockstar’s official Facebook page, the company announced: “Our current areas of focus include the in-game economy, which will require some additional balancing in order to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun, as well as some persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions.
