Red Dead Online Updates (July 26): All New Event Week Rewards, Bonuses and More

Does Red Dead Online update every week? Well, sort of. Red Dead Online used to release new updates every week just like the GTA Online Weekly Update.

But more recently Rockstar has relaxed into a monthly update schedule, with certain bonuses and rewards changing each week and some available all month long.

The Weekly reset for Red Dead Online takes place at 11 p.m. PDT/2 a.m. EDT each Tuesday for those weekly changes, but most of those are already pre-planned in advance (as you’ll see further down).

Keep reading for a full list of all the discounts, rewards, and updates coming to Red Dead Online in July 2022.
