This week in Red Dead Online without a single doubt was the toughest time to play with the favour of Monday’s game patch that resulted in constant crashing issues, the lack of NPCs within the world of Red Dead Online and even reports of consoles overheating. Of course, Rockstar quickly resolved most of the issues with Thursday’s patch that rolled back to the prior Naturalist patch. Though, not all the issues are completely resolved but the game is now in a much better state.
A little earlier today, Rockstar finally shared the event week details for Red Dead Online. While unfortunately, this event week will only last until Tuesday, August 18th we still decided to put together a summary of the event week. On the bright side, two new Legendary Animals and a couple of new items were added.
Red Dead Online – New Legendary Animals
Saddle up, Naturalists! Two new Legendary Animals were added on Tuesday. Introducing Legendary Red Streak Coyote located around the Pike’s Basin area, and lastly, the Legendary Red Streak Coyote is found somewhere around the southeast of Strawberry.
Exchanging both the Legendary Coyotes to Gus will let him have the required materials that Gus will craft players the exclusive Barbu Hat that you can’t buy anywhere else! Upon also trading the coyotes to Gus before August 18th, Rockstar will award you with a free Coat of your choice!
