Red Dead Online Honor - How to Increase Your Honor Rank in Red Dead Online

Here's all the info you need about the Honor system in Red Dead Online, including how to raise and reset the Honor rank.

Red Dead Online, just like the single player portion of the game, features a full Honor level system, which changes based on your acts. In this Red Dead Online Honor rank guide, we'll be compiling all the information you need to know about the levelling system for the online game.

If you instead need any additional information on the online section of Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll want to head over to our complete Red Dead Online guide. Here you can find our full beginner’s guide to getting going in the wild west, as well as a full list of all the essential tips and tricks you need to know.

Red Dead Online Honor Guide

As we mentioned previously, Honor is featured in both the online and single player sections of Red Dead Redemption 2. It works in similar ways for both online and single player however, if you go around murdering folk, your Honor rank is going to decline pretty quickly.

Whereas if you choose to let people live when given the option in various Red Dead Online missions, your Honor rank will increase. For example, in the intro section of Red Dead Online, you’re given the option of killing a bandit and taking his treasure map, or taking the treasure map and letting him run. You can probably tell which option corresponds with a rise or fall in your Honor rank.

How to Check Your Honor Rating in Red Dead Online

If you ever want to check your Honor rank at any time in Red Dead Online, bring up the pause menu. Select the ‘Player’ option, and then select the entry of your created character.

After this, select the ‘General’ option, and you’ll be able to see the level of your current Honor. When you’re hovering over the ‘Honor’ option on the list, you’ll see that there’s a line of text near the bottom left corner of the screen.

This tells you if your current Honor rank has any affect on the world around your character in Red Dead Online. For example, it could say that store prices have been decreased if you have good Honor, or increased if you have negative Honor.

How to Change Your Honor in Red Dead Online

But what happens when you go too far in the wrong direction on the Honor scale in Red Dead Online? If you ever need to reset your Honor meter in Red Dead Online, you can head to Old Man Jones, at the map point that we’ve spotlighted just below.

However, there’s a catch to this. Although Old Man Jones will reset your Honor meter to neutral in Red Dead Online, it’ll cost you three gold bars every time you want to do this. These don’t come around very often at all, and if you want a complete walkthrough of the microtransactions featured in Red Dead Online, you can head over to our Red Dead Online microtransactions guide.
