The Bolas are an item featured in Red Dead Online.


A thrown weapon, perfect for tangling the legs of bounties.[1]

Bolas are strings of rope with balls attached to the end of them. They are most helpful to stop a bounty from running away or shooting at the player. The bolas will hold the bounty in place with enough time for the player to hogtie them.


Bolas can be unlocked for the price of one Role Token after reaching Bounty Hunter rank 10. It then can be bought from any Fence or Gunsmith at the price of $30.00 or 2 gold bars.


  • Bolas are the Spanish word for "Balls," which essentially is what makes up the item.
