While it doesn’t look like Red Dead Online is getting any significant content updates over the holidays, Red Dead Redemption 2 is still brimming with new ways to experience the Wild West game, thanks to modders. One of the recent projects to catch my eye is Bolmin’s Jobs Mod. It’s not about bringing more fast-paced action to the Wild West – instead, it’s about getting busy doing the small things and enjoying the atmosphere of Rockstar Games’ take on 20th century America.
The simply titled Jobs Mod allows you to pick up work as a miner, bartender, hunter, shepherd, dockworker, or a delivery driver for some in-game cash. Bolmin explains that the jobs work similarly to camp chores, albeit with some extra encounters. That said, the modder warns that “they are not meant to be action packed” as “the main idea is to have different ambient tasks” that allow you to “just kick back and enjoy the world or atmosphere”.
Once you download the mod, you’ll find that various cities now have NPCs marked with job icons. You can pick up hunting work in Saint Denis, Strawberry, and Annesburg or pull pints in Saint Denis, Tumbleweed, and Valentine as an assistant bartender, to name a few examples.
