GTA Online Gets Red Dead Redemption 2 Mission And Weapon

It didn’t take long for data miners to find hidden content inside the GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist.

Apparently, Rockstar had a little surprise for all GTA Online players who are waiting for Red Dead Redemption 2, waiting to be announced as new content for the game. Now everything is unveiled, bringing us a new event in GTA Online.

It all started when The Guru Team found out that inside the files of the GTA Online: The Doomsday heist there’s a number of unreleased vehicles and items, waiting to be released.What spiked their interest is a brand new revolver that is linked to a headshot challenge as well as some files indicating the existence of a treasure hunt event for a gold-plated six-shooter, based on Red Dead Redemption 2.

Later in the day, Rockstar has officially announced the start of the treasure hunt and the details of this event. It reads:

Rumors of a lost relic from the frontier have begun to surface, and treasure awaits those bold enough to seek it. Keep an eye on your iFruit for a special in-game email containing the first clue, then follow the trail to unlock the Double-Action Revolver in GTA Online.

Once you acquire your gratis Double-Action Revolver, complete the Headshot Challenge in Freemode for a GTA$250,000 reward and unlock it for future gun-slinging exploits in Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

So buckle up and get ready to start searching for that sweet loot, giving GTA Online another reason to win more people back now that The Doomsday Heist is out.

In related news, GTA Online updates are going to be slowing down a great deal after Rockstar Games releases Red Dead Redemption 2 later this year. The game, as the biggest Rockstar release since GTA 5 in 2013, is likely going to be taking up the studio’s attention for a long time.

Will you be taking part in the treasure hunt for the Double-Action Revolver? What’s your thoughts on GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist?
