Target Races is a Race Mode in Red Dead Online. It has been added to the game with the 1.07 March 2019 update on March 26, 2019.

This is a mode that can be played by 2 to 16 players. You have an unlimited amount of lives.

In Target Races, all players start out with a bow and arrow and compete to shoot targets while on horseback to pass checkpoints.

As you race, each target you hit will increase your Horse’s Stamina, and you can also take advantage of strategic pickups along the courses.

Target Races Tips:

  • Ride through Stamina pickups to extend your Horse’s sprinting time or quickly recover from a drained Horse Stamina core.
  • Weapons pickups dole out firearms with limited ammo supplies – use a shotgun blast to quickly and easily takeout a checkpoint target or turn that weapon against your competition.
  • While players can lock-on to checkpoint targets, using weapons against other competitors will require proficiency with free-aim.
  • If you’re trailing behind, ride in your competitor’s slipstream to regenerate Horse Stamina quickly and gain a slight speed boost.
  • If you’re defending a lead you can kick your competitors to reduce their Horse Stamina levels, with a slight chance of being able to knock them down.

Target Races are also available to play in their Open Target Races variation..

Players compete to shoot targets while on horseback to pass checkpoints while racing to be first to the finish line.
