According to Rockstar, the so-called “Double-Action Revolver” can be unlocked for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption sequel by completing the headset challenge in GTA Online.

“Rumors of a lost relic from the frontier have begun to surface, and treasure awaits those bold enough to seek it”, Rockstar writes on its blog. “Keep an eye on your iFruit for a special in-game email containing the first clue, then follow the trail to unlock the Double-Action Revolver in GTA Online.”

“Once you acquire your gratis Double-Action Revolver, complete the Headshot Challenge in Freemode for a GTA$250,000 reward and unlock it for future gun-slinging exploits in Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”

While the game won’t be out before spring 2018, it’s nice that players can already obtain gear for the upcoming Red Dead sequel.
