Red Dead Online Missions Not Working For Many, Is There a Fix?

Red Dead Online beta is accessible on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right now. The beta offers players various kinds of missions but there is a slight problem with the game’s story missions and other activities. Many players are reporting that Red Dead Online missions aren’t working for them. The reason behind this is a glitch that stops missions from triggering in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online.

Many ask about how to fix this bug? But sadly there is no way to deal with it for the time being. Some players reported that missions take up to 5-minutes to start and by that time, they are miles away from the mission area. Rockstar Games hasn’t acknowleded the issue but the studio did fix a seperate issue where players couldn’t access the beta at all on Xbox One.

This issue with Red Dead Redemption 2 missions can particlarly be a problem when going after treasure maps and gold bars. Once players find a treasure map they can head to their satchel and “use” the map. This reveals an area where they can find the treasure, however, often these treasure maps don’t trigger as well which become a major frustration for the player. The problem, affects gang activties as well as solo players while trying to play various story missions in Red Dead Online.

But that’s not the only problem, here is a list of community reported issues with Red Dead Online beta.

  • Missions not working
  • Connection drops on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
  • Lack of character customizations after the initial character build
  • Many still can’t access the beta, for them it is “coming soon”
  • Pelts disapepar after you complete a mission or start a mission in Red Dead Online
  • Deleating and creating a new character often ends up the game using the mugshot for your previous character

Red Dead Redemption 2 online story missions and other activities need an update. The beta goes public on Noember 30th so we expect Rockstar Games to release an update to fix certaion bugs and glitches.
