Red Dead Online - Quick Draw Club Pass No. 2

Red Dead Online‘s first Quick Draw Pass has now expired, and we’ve moved into Pass No. 2. So let’s take a gander at how the pass works and what’s on offer.

How long does Quick Draw Club Pass No. 2 last?

The second Quick Draw Pass runs from August 10 to September 6. The third pass should start immediately after this one ends.

How do I see the contents of Quick Draw Pass No. 2?

Red Dead Online - Menu

There are two ways to dig into the contents of the pass. First, you can go to the Benefits section of the in-game menu (which you can access by pressing the Options button on PlayStation or the Esc. key on PC). From here, the pass should show up in a panel called Club Rewards (by default, this should say Rank 0). This panel should be in the bottom right-hand side of your screen.

The second way to get to this section is to go to the Progress section of the menu. This menu also features a panel for the pass, but this time it’s located on the left-hand side of the screen.

Once you’re here, you can look through all 25 ranks to see what you’ll be unlocking over the course of the micro-season. Unlike the Redcliffe outfit from last month, the main draw of the pass (the Rowberrow outfit) isn’t unlocked until you hit Rank 25 in the pass.

How do I purchase Quick Draw Pass No. 1?

Red Dead Online - Quick Draw Club

No matter how many times I do this, it’s this step that always proves to be difficult. Buying the dang thing is never as intuitive as it should be. So here’s how it works:

When you’re looking at the pass, there are three rows of rewards. The top row is the free stuff, while the bottom two rows are the premium rewards. You will earn the stuff in the top row whether you buy into the pass or not. What you’re actually buying into is the bottom two rows.

If you have one of the free rewards selected, you won’t see the option to buy the pass. Navigate your cursor to one of the premium rewards, and you’ll see text that says “Buy The Quick Draw Club” next to a button icon. Simply hold down that button (X on PlayStation) to purchase the premium pass. You will end up on a confirmation screen, at which point you’ll have to hold the button down again to finalize the purchase.

If you buy the pass after you’ve already leveled it up, you will have instant access to any of the premium rewards you would have earned already. So, if you level up to Rank 10, then purchase the premium pass, you’ll instantly unlock all premium rewards up to Rank 10.

How do I level up the pass?

The pass works exactly like the previous one.

Any XP you earn in the game will be applied to your Quick Draw Pass. So if your character gains 100 XP (for picking up a collectible, say), your pass will also gain 100 XP. (Note that XP is applied to both your character and the pass, not just the pass).

Like the previous Quick Draw Pass (and unlike the previous Outlaw Passes), the first tiers will move rapidly while the XP required for each fresh rank will increase as you get into the real meat of the pass.

Even so, I don’t think you’ll have any trouble with this. Even a casual player should be able to blast through all 25 ranks in a few days, just by playing an hour or two a day.

Is the Quick Draw Club Pass No. 2 worth it?

Red Dead Online - Rowberrow Necktie

This is always a tricky question to answer. If you have 25 Gold Bars burning a hole in your pocket, then yeah, go for it. And remember, if you buy all four Quick Draw Club Passes, you’ll get the Halloween Pass for free this year. So that might give you a little extra push.

The Quick Draw passes are also really fast to level up. I play on two characters, and I would have almost certainly have finished the first pass on both characters in a single day had my internet not cut out (my internet went down for like 18 hours, so I had to cut my RDO session short that day).

And you’ll get all your gold back, so why not?

At the same time, I’m really struggling to get excited about this pass. The hats are alright and there’s a decent outfit, but there’s nothing like last month’s Redcliff outfit to really get me excited.

But that’s my personal take. Maybe the Rowberrow goods are exactly what you’ve been hungering for?

Either way, just buy the dang pass. I’ve purchased every pass since I started playing, and I’ve never regretted a single one. If nothing else, it’s just nice to have something new to be working toward (especially if you’ve mastered every Role in the game at this point).
