Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Update Adds New Weapon And Mission

A weekly new Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online update is live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia alongside official patch notes revealing both new content and bug fixes. The latter is limited to just the PC version of the game, however, the former is coming to all of the aforementioned platforms, and it shouldn't require a download on the consumer side.

Most notably, the update adds a new mission to Red Dead Online. More specifically, it adds a new legendary hunt featuring the Legendary Iwakta Panther, which will require a well-trained eye and plenty of sedative ammo. In addition to this, there's also a new weapon, the Improved Bow Variant - Jaguar, which is fashioned from dense bone and coarse panther hide.

Below, you can check out the update's full patch notes, courtesy of Rockstar Games:
