Challenge Yourself to Rootin' Tootin' Fun with Target Races in Red Dead Online

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.
