Red Dead Online's beta has been updated to bring the new Target Races to players. During this event, players will race through a special course on horseback while shooting targets along the way. The goal is, of course, to be the first to cross the finish line.
All players start out with a bow and arrow – as you race, each target you hit will increase your Horse’s Stamina – but you can also take advantage of strategic pickups along the courses. Ride through Stamina pickups to extend your Horse’s sprinting time or quickly recover from a drained Horse Stamina core. Weapons pickups dole out firearms with limited ammo supplies – use a shotgun blast to quickly and easily takeout a checkpoint target or turn that weapon against your competition.
Today's update also offers PlayStation 4 players access to Open Target Races that, unlike the races mentioned above, do not have a set course. Players can shoot targets in any order.
Lastly, a number of new items have been added to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue for cowpokes lookin' for a new set of duds.
Check it all out on the Red Dead Online beta site.
