Red Dead Online ‘Frontier Pursuits’ are locked behind microtransactions

Today, Red Dead Redemption 2 got its September Update which adds new content to Red Dead Online. You can become a Collector, Bounty Hunter, and Trader. Unfortunately, these are locked behind the microtransactions. Coming across Gold Bars is incredibly difficult in the game. Each one of these specializations is locked behind 15 Gold Bars. You’ll have to buy the $20 bundle which contains 55 Gold Bars to unlock the three.

If you’ve been playing Red Dead Online since it launched, you probably have enough Gold Bars. But for those who have been waiting for more content, you’re out of luck. You’ll have to either grind for dozens of hours, or simply get fed up and buy the Gold Bars.

Hopefully, Rockstar Games will remove the requirement in the future because it’s a little unfair. If it was 5 Gold Bars it would’ve been doable, but 15 Gold Bars for each class is too much. What do you think? Let us know.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cinematic action-adventure game set in the Wild West. The title takes place in 1899, a time which brought stability to the United States, but also resulted in a drastic shift for many individuals who lived close to the untamed frontier. Beforehand, the federal government chose not to heavily intervene in these territories, going all the way to California. However, the need for consolidation and some form of control — especially when states like Montana and Utah were admitted into the Union — triggered an end to the uncontrolled lawlessness that prevailed during those times. What many people considered true freedom was coming to an end.
