Listed below are the storyline missions in Red Dead Online. The narrative of Red Dead Online spans a total of 15 story missions, with an additional 5 missions included in the Moonshiners DLC. For the first time in the Red Dead series, the player's choices and honor play a major role in the story, as certain missions are available only to players with a high or low honor level. The game also features several Strangers that give an unlimited number of side-missions to the player.

A Land of Opportunities (Story Missions)

Story missions are done completely in private sessions and can be done by 2-4 players. It is possible to play with only a player's posse or use matchmaking to play with other players. With the exception of the intro missions, all missions can be replayed, but won't give the same rewards as when they were completed for the first time.

Stranger side-missions

Stranger missions are done completely in Free Roam and can be done alone or with a posse. They are unlocked after "Honor Among Horse Thieves" and award cash, gold, and XP, in addition to increasing or decreasing the player's honor depending on the mission type. Other players can interfere with these missions and attempt to sabotage them to receive rewards of their own. There isn't a limited number of stranger missions.
