share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

In Red Dead Online players will often find wagons spawning across the world.

However, there are also several wagons which can be purchased from the stables which are better than the standard wagon.


if you're following the path of the Bounty Hunter, and have purchased your license, then this means you can also purchase the Bounty Hunter Wagon.

How To Buy The Bounty Hunter Wagon?

As mentioned, players can purchase the Hunting Wagon from stables. 

But before they can do so, they need to have a Bounty Hunter license.

Even then, players will need to level up their bounty hunter role to rank 10 before they're actually allowed to use the Hunting Wagon.

What Is The Bounty Hunter Wagon Capacity?

One of the biggest bonuses that comes from using a bounty hunter wagon, is that it can carry multiple bounties (fugitives) at once.


This is especially useful for solo players, who might otherwise be limited by how many bounties they can carry or drag along on their horse.

With the Wagon, 4-6 man bounties shouldn't be a problem for solo players.

What Is The Bounty Hunter Wagon Price?

It's not cheap, we'll say that much.

Players will have to fork out a high price of $875 + 3 tokens to buy the Bounty Hunter Wagon.

As we have mentioned though, it will more than make its money back if you play solo.

Should You Buy Bounty Hunter Wagon Insurance?

Unquestionably yes. If you're wondering why you should pay for the added insurance, it's rather simple.


People (real people) are not horrible.

If you get someone griefing you in-game and they destroy your wagon, insurance will allow you to call it back without the need to go to the stables and buy a new one.

And given the likelihood that someone will screw you over at some stage, it's probably worth paying the extra $125 for that insurance

Is The Hunting Wagon Worth It?

In our opinion, yes.

If you want to take the Bounty Hunter role seriously, it's a fantastic purchase that ultimately helps you load up more bounties, dead or alive.

Whilst it's slower than riding on a horse, you ultimately can capture more bounties and that it the aim of the game at the end of the day.


Red Dead Online Bounty Hunter Expansion - Coming Dec 1

Alongside Red Dead Online's standalone release, Rockstar Games are also improving the role of a Bounty Hunter.

The new update is coming December 1 and adds "an influx of fugitives to deal with" Rockstar explained in their newswire post.

In addition, the developers also added:

"The Bounty Hunter Role is enhanced with new criminals to track down and Prestigious level equipment and skills to unlock across 10 more Bounty Hunter ranks. There will also be new Legendary Bounties and a 100 Rank Outlaw Pass."

So if you're yet to experience this particular frontier pursuit, there's never been a better time to get started and give it a go.
