Madam Nazar is an important NPC, but she likes to wander. Her wanderlust is so strong that she packs up camo and moves to a new location every single day. It can be hard to keep up, so every day, we'll show you where to find her.

Today, Madam Nazar can be found north of Manzanita Post, Tall Trees. She's on the road that connects the post and Beecher's Hope.

Getting Started In Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online takes place before the events of Red Dead Redemption 2's single-player campaign, making RDO a prequel to a prequel. This means that the world isn't quite the same as the one you play in during the story.

Red Dead Online isn't free-to-play, you either have to have Red Dead Redemption 2 or buy RDO separately. Like many live-service games, RDO features both a standard and premium in-game currency. Gold is bought with real cash, but can also be earned fairly easily in-game.

Red Dead Online Frequently Asked Questions

Cecil Tucker Red Dead Online Bounty Intro Portrait

Here's a quick look through some of the most frequently asked questions about Red Dead Online. Remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question, everyone needs to start somewhere.

What Platforms Is Red Dead Online Available On?

Red Dead Online is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. It doesn't currently have any next-gen upgrades, but it can be played on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

What Are The Minimum System And Memory Requirements For Red Dead Online?

Steam recommends players looking to play Red Dead Online have minimum system specs of:

  • 64-bit processor and operating system (Windows 7).
  • At least an Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX-6300 or equivalent.
  • An Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB or AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB graphics card should ensure you can differentiate an outlaw from a sheriff.
  • You'll also need at least 150 GB of free drive space. (On consoles that size is still a staggering 123 GB.)

Do I Need PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold To Play Red Dead Online?

In short: Yes. Unfortunately, unlike Fortnite, you will need to pay for your console's online service to be able to enjoy Red Dead Online. There are no extra costs for playing it on PC, however.

Does Red Dead Online Have Crossplay, Cross Saves, Or Cross Progression?

Also in short: No. If you want to posse up, you'll have to play with people on the same system. If you want to play with multiple friends across various types of hardware, you'll have a tough time with it, as you'll have to level up and progress each character separately.

Can I Have Multiple Characters In Red Dead Online?

Unfortunately, if you want another character to play around with, you'll have to permanently retire your current outlaw. You're only allowed one bandit at a time, no takebacks or swapsies.

Fortunately, your ill-gotten money and gold will carry over to your new character once you're through the tutorial, but all your progress and roles will be reset.
