The three Frontier Pursuits are the Bounty Hunter, the Trader and the Collector.

"Licensed Bounty Hunters can pick up work by visiting bounty boards located near law offices, post offices and train stations across the states. There is no shortage of criminals to be dealt with and the targets range in difficulty, from lone low-level criminals to notorious outlaws with armed protection details and a watchful eye," Rockstar said in its announcement.

Here's a list of some skills and items Bounty Hunters can obtain:

  • Dual Gun Spinning: Perform gun spinning tricks with two pistols or revolvers
  • Ducking: Duck for protection while on horseback
  • Reinforced Lasso: A lasso made with reinforced rope to keep bounties secure
  • Tonics Satchel Upgrade: Store more items in your Tonics Pouch


"Your trusted camp companion, Cripps, has long dreamed of starting a trading outpost and you’re going to help him make it happen - by becoming a partner in the fledgling Cripps Trading Company. Combining Cripps’ lifetime of working with animal materials and your skills at hunting and frontier security, you’ll have the perfect ingredients to develop a thriving business," Rockstar said.

Here are some skills and items for the Trader:

  • Stew Pot: A camp upgrade that unlocks stew recipes to boost cores
  • Canine Warning: Train your dog to warn of thieves raiding your camp
  • Lance Knife: A bespoke knife style available to Traders only


With Madam Nazar’s help, you will be able to explore the world finding valuable treasures, whether they’re discarded Tarot cards in abandoned camps, buried treasures unearthed with your trusty shovel, hidden family heirlooms and more," Rockstar said.

Here are some skills and items for the Collector:

  • Aguila Machete: A classic machete restyled for the use of adventurous and belligerent Collectors
  • Metal Detector: An important tool which can identify collectibles buried underground
  • Equine Assistance: Collect herbs from horseback
