As you play Red Dead Online, you can work towards completing various Award Challenges. There are a total of 425 Awards across 12 Categories, and each award challenge has different tiers to progress through.

Completing award tiers will help you Rank Up by earning you Experience Points (XP), and fully completing all levels of an award will reward you with a special Gold Belt Buckle. Achieving at least 5 gold belt buckles from awards is also required for the "Buckle Up" Trophy/Achievement for PS4/Xbox One.

You can track your development through the Awards section of the Progress menu. Certain Awards also allow you to reset your progress in exchange for Gold Nuggets, so you can complete them again (up to a maximum of ten times).

Below you can find the full list of all the different Award Challenges in Red Dead Online, along with the respective tiers for each award.
