Guides · · by Magnar
Red Dead Online Frontier Pursuits
In September 2019, Rockstar announced their first major expansion to the Red Dead Online with Frontier Pursuits which included the Red Dead Moonshiner Role.
A series of unique roles that allowed players to shape their own paths on the Frontier, be it collecting rare items, setting up a trade business or hunting bounty targets!
Red Dead Moonshiner Role
The Red Dead Moonshiner role was introduced to Red Dead Online in December 2019.
To begin your journey into Moonshining, you must be an active Trader who is at least level 5.
When you hit level 5, Cripps will introduce you to Maggie Fike, who proposes you join her in setting up a Moonshining business.
After meeting Maggie at Emerald Ranch, you will have the option to purchase a Moonshine Shack and choose its location. Our Moonshine Shine locations guide can help you choose the perfect spot for your shack!
From there, Maggie will have you complete story missions and quests that will earn you XP to unlock awesome rewards:
- Bar Expansion – Construct your own bar at your Moonshine Property
- Flammable Moonshine – A highly potent alcohol that can be poured and set alight.
- Various pamphlets & more.
