Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is the online mode of the popular and famous game Red Dead Redemption 2. In this mode, you explore the world as a ranger or bandit, alongside other players. After reading this article, you'll know exactly what Red Dead Redemption 2 Online is and if it is for you.

Red Dead Redemption 2

  • Large, extremely detailed, vibrant world.
  • Strong storylines, characters, and dialogue options.
  • Rockstar once again presents an audiovisual masterpiece.
  • The tempo of the game is relatively low. Take the time for this game.

What can we expect from Red Dead Redemption 2 Online?

On the road with your buddies

Your own gang

Just like in the masterful single player, you can also form your own gang in the multiplayer. Hopefully with camp and all, so you can also complain to your clanmates about how little they contribute to the finances of the gang, but take off with your hard-earned tonics.

Fastest gun in the West


Is that stranger in the saloon giving you a funny look? Just challenge that rascal to a duel. You don't just need to shoot at each other, because you can also see who can catch the most fish in 10 minutes or disarm the most criminals? With the creativity of Rockstar at the helm, we'll come a long way.

Hands up or I'll shoot!

Robbery missions

It's no secret that RDR 2 lets you be the bad guy. Trains, banks, and carriages are not safe when you're around are in the area. I'm hoping RDR 2 Online lets you kick it up a notch with new missions that you can do with (or against) your friends to rake in the big bucks.

The Beta in action

Free roam

At its core, RDR2 Online free roam is the same as the single player game: you hunt, fight, and help strangers. However, you don't play as Arthur Morgan, but as a character that you create yourself. The nice thing about this is that you can also make the Grizzly Hills unsafe as a female character or as a bald hillbilly. The fun here is that you will encounter other players at any time.

Story quests

RDR 2 Online also comes with a new storyline. This is obviously not as extensive as that of Arthur and the gang, but offers enough content to keep you busy for a few hours. In addition, it's also expected that Rockstar will constantly provide the online modes with new content.


Besides the free roam, there are also the so-called Showdowns. These game modes take place in small maps, made up of familiar areas. Here you play everything from Shootout (death match) to Hostile Territory (King of the Hill) and Make it Count (Battle Royale). So work together with your friends, your posse, and your team to dominate the scoreboard!
