Red Dead Online’s Latest Update Adds New Spoils of War Showdown Mode

Red Dead Online, Red Dead Redemption 2’s online component, just received a new mode. The game’s last update added a new gun, and numerous events for players to enjoy while in free roam.

Spoils of War, the latest Showdown mode addition to Red Dead Online, pits two teams against each other, each defending their own designated stockpile while doing their best to raid their opposition’s. The mode supports several locations, “including Fort Mercer and Valentine.” Not only that, Rockstar wanted to encourage players to give Showdown modes a run, giving them a 20% XP boost all week long. At the same time, winning one Spoils of War match grants you an “extra bonus of 8x Dynamite Arrows that you can retrieve from the Post Office or your Camp Lockbox.”

In Spoils of War, 2-16 players compete in this team-based mode to defend their stockpile and raid each other’s. Each team must steal loot from their opponent’s base and return it to theirs, while defending their own stash. Whichever team steals the most by the end of the match wins. You can take on this new Showdown mode across a variety of locations including Fort Mercer and Valentine.

As added benefits this week, you’ll get a 20% XP boost on all Showdown Modes and winning one Spoils of War match will earn you an extra bonus of 8x Dynamite Arrows that you can retrieve from the Post Office or your Camp Lockbox.
