Red Dead Online gets new Moonshiners pursuit later this month

Red Dead Online players get even more opportunity when the Moonshiners Frontier Pursuit drops later this month.

Players will then be able to dive into the new profession and experience new storylines, mechanics, and unlock new skills as they build up their moonshining business alongside Maggie Fike.

To kick off your moonshining endeavors, you’re going to want to ensure you’re Trader Rank 5, or have at least completed a sell mission in the Trader pursuit. After the new content launches on December 13, you’ll receive an introduction to Maggie Fike through your very reliable camp coordinator, Cripps. From here, things will evolve as you unlock your moonshining shack, build it up, and grow your business.
