Red Dead Online's Guns Are So Much More Expensive Than They Are in Single-Player Red Dead Redemption 2

Panning for gold.

If you're looking to purchase your favorite gun from Red Dead Redemption 2's single-player campaign in Red Dead Online you might be paying a premium.

Just like in Red Dead Redemption 2's single-player campaign you can earn money by completing missions and completing tasks. You can then take that hard-earned cash and take it to either the town stores or the catalogue and shop for things like clothes and weapons. The weapons you can buy are the same from the ones you can get in Arthur Morgan's story except for one thing: the price.

How much?

It seems that the same weapons in Red Dead Online are about three times more expensive than the price of the same guns in single player. And that's not considering the Rank requirements needed to purchase said weapon. Here are a few examples:

  • Double-Action Revolver - $65, Red Dead Online: $195 (Rank 17)
  • Mauser Pistol - $250, Red Dead Online: $1,000 (Rank 34)
  • Litchfield Repeater - $145, Red Dead Online: $580 (Rank 18)
  • Rolling Block Rifle - $187, Red Dead Online: $685 (Rank 13)
  • Double-Barreled Shotgun - $95, Red Dead Online $285 (Rank 30)

There are two types of currency players can earn in Red Dead Online. Regular cash which can be used to purchase weapons, and Gold Bars which is a premium currency in the game. Players can earn gold nuggets in the game and automatically combine 100 nuggets into a single gold bar. Details on Red Dead Online's microtransactions are scarce at the moment but no doubt we will hear more as the beta rolls out.
