Things Red Dead Online Doesn't Tell You

Red Dead Online players aren't happy with how the in-game economy is shaping up. It was an exploit that was also present in GTA Online, so it stands to reason that those players, who have migrated over to Red Dead Online would try it out here too.

Ford117 notes (via Eurogamer) that this isn't quite accurate; the Mauser costs $1000 in Red Dead Online - around $750 more than the price of the gun in the campaign - when it would have actually set you back $35 in 1899.

Another redditor, Sinful_One, reached out to Rockstar to question the rate at which they were earning currency, and the reply didn't do much to quell the ire of the community. Players say that it is out of balance, pointing to examples like baked beans being worth more than gold rings.

While there are likely many updates in the pipeline, Rockstar is honing in on the economy for this first major update.

Rockstar has now acknowledged the problems with Red Dead Online's economy, stating on Twitter that it is working on getting the economy in a better place "to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun".

While no specific date was given for the update, Rockstar said that it could come as early as "the end of this week", while confirming that more updates are on the way next week.

"The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these", Rockstar said.

It's been over a month since Rockstar's incredible Red Dead Redemption 2 came out, and after basking in its vast, attractive single player journey for dozens of hours, many of us are ready for more.
