Halloween Approaches in Red Dead Online

The Halloween spirit is sweeping the foothills and mountains, the deserts and the swamps, the towns and cities alike. This week in Red Dead Online, hunt down two new legendary animals, pick up the all-new Halloween Pass, take on the new Dead of Night Mode and much more as All Hallow’s Eve approaches.

A pair of apex predators are said to be making their home in local swamps, eluding even the most skilled of local hunters. The spotted Nightwalker Panther blends in with its surrounding vegetation in the mist and shadows of dusk south of Bolger Glade; the albino Ghost Panther, meanwhile, has been seen hunting deer in Bluewater Marsh and the surrounding areas.


Bring the Nightwalker and Ghost Pelts to Gus’ Trapper Store to sell them for a handsome amount of coin. Doing so will unlock the corresponding Garment Sets for purchase – wear them with pride as you regale your chums with exaggerated tales of bravery.

The Halloween Pass Brings Tricks and Treats Alike to Red Dead Online

Earn the Spine-chilling Zavala Machete, New Horse Masks, Moonshine Bar Theme and More

Feel the seasonal chill and hear the unsettling howls heard across the plains? Grim tidings are making their way to Red Dead Online with the very first Halloween Pass. Meanwhile, Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club membership returns to reward all players with free seasonal gifts.

The Halloween Pass is a purchasable, limited-time upgrade stacked with macabre rewards across 20 ranks, available today running through November 16. The Halloween Pass includes:

  • The skeletal Zavala Machete
  • The petrifying Flayed Bison and colorful Painted Ram Horse Masks
  • Three Halloween-themed emotes: Frighten, Scared and The Ripper
  • Spooky Photo Studio Backgrounds like the Cemetery and Abandoned Mansion Backgrounds
  • Post-Apocalyptic and Predator filters for the Advanced Camera
  • A Gothic Décor Theme for your Moonshine Bar
  • The Gallows Blindfold
  • New Camp flags and more

Even more rewards are available for all players – such as the Phantom Buck Horse Mask and the Noir Advanced Camera filter – via free and automatic membership to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club.

All Halloween Pass Rewards up to your current Pass Rank carry over and unlock instantly once you purchase the Halloween Pass through the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue or via your Progress menu. Everything you unlock during the Halloween Pass season – from today until November 16 – is yours to keep after the Halloween Pass expires.

Purchasing the Halloween Pass this week will land you a Reward for a free weapon component of your choice. Encounter Madam Nazar this week and you’ll notice that all of the Halloween Masks are back, albeit for a limited time only – snag one and you’ll get 10 Poison Throwing Knives and a Reward for a free Ability Card of your choice. All players who have undertaken a Role will receive a Reward for 2,000 Club XP and an offer for 50% off a weapon from the Fence.
