Money is an extremely valuable resource in Red Dead Online, and it isn’t easy to come across. On top of that, items can be pretty pricey, too. If your wallet is empty, here are a few things you can do to get more money in Red Dead Online.

Join Horse Races

If you need some fast cash, one of the best things you can do in Red Dead Online is partake in horse races. This competition rewards you with some pretty hefty cash, and it’s easy to find them scattered around the map.

To find a horse race in Red Dead Online, simply open your map and look for a black and white checkered flag. Head on over that location to find your nearest race. You have the option of either spectating or racing yourself with your steed.

During the horse race, you will have to pass through different checkpoints until you reach the finish line. Needless to say, you’ll also be competing with others during the competition. You will be given money if you manage to win the race in Red Dead Online.

Complete Missions

Another thing you can try doing is to join other players in doing story missions. Press left on the d-pad to open the Free Roam menu and search for the Quick Join option. From there, select Story Missions On-Call, which will transport you to a random mission in Red Dead Online.

Take note that these quests and random and might even be a bit advanced from where you are in the game. However, the further the story quest, the more money you can get in Red Dead Online. Also, remember to play nice as you will be working with your friends or a group of three other players.

Some missions can give you plenty of money while others will only reward you with less than $100. Still, it’s a great way to pass the time while earning some cash, so you can’t really go wrong with that. It’s important to note, however, that you can only collect cash once per mission. If you stumble across the same quest twice or more times, you’ll only earn EXP.

Solve Treasure Maps

When you’re clearing a bandit camp in Red Dead Online, it might feel incredibly tempting to wipe everyone out. Instead, what you will want to do is spare the leader and begin looting all of the bodies in the area.

There’s a pretty good chance that you’ll stumble across a treasure map on one body, which you can then follow. These treasure maps will often to lead large piles of money, so you’ll definitely want to try this method if you’re low on cash in Red Dead Online.
