The specialist roles in Red Dead Online have been around for a while and with time, players have learnt how to become more effective in each role.

Today we're going to show you 5 essential tips & tricks that all Red Dead Online players need to know, including 1 thing Bounty Hunters should never do!

1) How to correctly use a hunting wagon - Traders

Oftentimes you'll target a deer, sneak up, take a safe shot and then claim your prize. This takes a lot of time, so luckily /u/JFGC1292 has shared the most efficient way to collect animals or even people with the hunting wagon.

2) Easily traverse cliffs - All Roles

If you've ever searched for collectables or been out hunting, you'll often find yourself at a cliff edge, realising you have a long walk down. Well no more! /u/CoastieMark shows a technique that only those who have mastered the roles will know. Using bulrush, you can "vomit rope" your way down any cliff, off a bridge or anything else without taking damage!

Well that’s one way to tackle steep cliffs from r/RedDeadOnline

3) Take care when searching homes - Collector

Madam Nazar will often send you into homes, hotels and saloons to find the objects she requires, this means that sometimes you may be an unwelcome guest. If this happens, /u/sebortion has demonstrated the most effective way to take care of any unruly residents who may not want you stealing their antiques!

4) Transporting villains you've captured - Bounty Hunter

You've travelled across the Heartlands, fought a gruesome battle and finally apprehend your target, yet sometimes, simply putting them on your horse's rump isn't safe enough. Thankfully /u/RazzaG22 has devised a method of transportation that no bounty can surely escape from. Who needs a horse when bounties can ride on your shoulders?

5) One thing to always avoid! - Bounty Hunter

You're in the middle of a fight, your target is in sight, you've caught him right?.... Wrong, /u/zzzenix who clearly has much to learn about Bounty Hunting demonstrates what not to do in the middle of an altercation, and that is, don't hogtie yourself!
