Red Dead Online: How To Trade in Bounty Hunter XP For Gold

New Bandana from the Red Dead Online Blood Money Update.

The Bounty Hunter role is one of the roles players can take part in Red Dead Online to receive Gold, Money, and XP. This role has a total of 30 Ranks (and additional 10 were added on December 1st) that players can unlock. Once you reach Rank 30 you will unlock the ability to exchange Bounty Hunter XP for Gold. Learn more about how this process works and what the payout is below.

Reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30

Before you unlock the ability to exchange Bounty Hunter XP for Gold you need to reach Bounty Hunter Role Rank 30. To do this you will need to grind the profession for a good amount of time. Some tips to help speed up the process I found handy are:

  • Complete 5* Legendary Bounties.
  • Do other bounties while Legendary Bounties are on cooldown.
  • Play with a posse if you can.
  • Capitalize on double XP Role weeks.

These are a few of the tips I used to reach Rank 30 fairly easily. I am a solo only player so reaching Rank 30 is definitely doable alone, it just takes a bit of effort. If you have any other tips to add to this section drop a comment below.

Trade In the Bounty Hunter Award

Once you reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30 you will receive the Bounty Hunter Experience Award. This unique item unlocks the ability to exchange Bounty Hunter Experience for RDO$ and Gold. This means you can continue to play the role to receive added bonuses which is a nice service.

To use the trade-in service you need to acquire 10,000 Bounty Hunter XP (so 5 Bounty Hunter Ranks essentially). Once you have this amount of XP navigate through the following Progress > Awards > Bounty Hunter > Bounty Hunter Award. On the Bounty Hunter Award push the Trade In button. This will turn in your experience in exchange for 0.5 Gold, RDO$100, and 500 XP.
