[Top 10] RDO Best Missions Every Player Should Do

Buenos dias, amigo!

Let’s take you through the best missions in the Wild West.

Story missions and side missions are among the best ways to make money and level up early on. Some high-profile missions are even great when you’ve invested a lot of time in the game. There are also missions that’ll reward you with some quick cash and XP. Here’s our list of the best ones.

10. Honor Among Horse Thieves

Honor Among Horse Thieves is the first story mission, after the introduction. Horley suggested you go see Clay Davies, a horse thief, to learn the ins and outs of the horse-rustling trade. This is the only story mission in Red Dead Online, besides the introduction and the two meetings with Horley in Blackwater, that cannot be replayed. 

9. Highly Illegal And Highly Moral

This mission is only available to players who are honorable. Marshal Davies will ask you to meet him near Van Horn. He is on the trail of Alfredo Montez and he wants to finish things. This is one of the missions in the Path of the Gunslinger.
