I've been playing red dead online for a couple of months. I recently got my bounty hunter role and was able to make 1000$ in about 4 days. I'm saving up for the prestigious bounty hunter license, but I'm also wondering whether or not I should buy a different role. Being a bounty hunter is probably one of the most fun roles to play, but does it pay the most? I've seen collectors getting around 300$ or 200$ when they complete a collection. That was a long time ago though, and I don't know if the prices of the collections have gone down.
According to GamersDecide on the website found here,
The Moonshiner Role is the most recent of the Player Roles added to Red Dead Online, and while it is the most expensive one to start, it can also be by far the most profitable of the four choices. In addition to making a lot of money, the Moonshiner role offers a better variety of mission types and activities.
This role pays very well if done right, and offers many interesting missions and special offers. It also offers the most money per sale.
