Red Dead Online - where to find the best starting weapons, how much it costs, how to improve

Red Dead Online is a multiplayer offshoot of the main game, in which hundreds of users can explore a huge open world, complete quests, and hunt each other. The latter activity is the most popular, and in this guide we will tell you which weapon you should choose at the start when your adventure is just beginning.


What weapons are in Red Dead Online

To begin with, we will list all the categories of weapons available in the game. In total, it is divided into 5 different types:


  • Revolvers;
  • Pistols;
  • Rifles;
  • Shotguns;
  • Other (this includes melee weapons, explosives and bows).

There are several different models in each category, which are constantly changing their characteristics with updates. In other words, choosing the best weapons in RDO will take you a lot of testing time, but we did it for you.

Best Melee Weapon

The best option for melee combat in RDO (sometimes you run out of ammo) is the tomahawk, which you can access at level 36. Until this moment, we recommend not to bother with this category, using any of the available means. For example, a throwing knife that unlocks at level 8.


How to get weapons for free

If your finances are really tight and you want to get a good gun, there are several ways to get a couple of guns for free (Midnight pistol, Flaco and Granger revolvers).

To get started, head to a small saloon located in the city of Valentine:

On the spot, a writer will be waiting for you, who will offer you to complete an optional quest with the search for several villains. You need to inspect the goal cards, after which new marks will appear on the map. Go through them, deal with the bandits and take the captured pistols from them.

There is an even easier way to acquire a new gun, however, it will be weaker than the previous options. This is a gambler's revolver, which one dealer can give you for free.

To do this, just visit the NPC at the point that we marked on the map:

Go to the NPC and, going to his shop, select the very last item - in front of the revolver you will see a zero cost, which means that you can pick it up for free.


How to upgrade weapons in RDO

To make your weapon even more effective, it can be improved. The easiest and most effective method is to use modified cartridges, which, when they hit the target, inflict additional damage with poison or fire. You can get such shells (there are also improved arrows in the game) from gunsmiths for currency or craft yourself if you have a recipe and the necessary materials.

There, at the gunsmiths, you can see options for improving your weapons. Each model implies its own upgrades, which can be responsible for the bullet's flight range, power, stability when firing, and so on.
