Other Red Dead Online Guides:
The most common weapon in the online game mode is surprisingly not the pistols. It is the rifles. At least in our experience. Red Dead Online has quite a few Rifles including Repeaters.
The Carbine Repeater is available right from the start and can be bought for a meager 90 bucks. The best weapon for a newbie.
Bolt Action Rifle
The Bolt Action Rifle is a one-hit kill weapon, packs quite a punch but has low ammo clip. It can be bought right from the start too but costs $360. Otherwise, you can spend 15 Gold to buy it.
The Varmint Rifle is a very basic Rifle that can be unlocked an early Rank 8 and can be bought for just $72. I mean, the game itself is not that cheap in some parts of the world.
The Lancaster Repeater unlocks at a very early stage, Rank 12. It is a good Repeater weapon and can be bought for $405.
The Litchfield Repeater is a mid-range weapon, featuring good overall stats. It can be unlocked at Rank 18 but has a big $580 price tag.
The Springfield Rifle is one of the best rifles in the game and can be bought pretty cheaply. It unlocks at Rank 38 and can be bought for a $240 price afterward.
Rolling Block Rifle
Rolling Block Rifle is a relatively expensive rifle that unlocks at Rank 13. It is kind of a special weapon and costs $685 just to get on your back.
The best rifle in the game is none other than the Carcano Rifle. It unlocks at Rank 50 and costs $760 to buy afterward.
