Red Dead Online is the multiplayer component of the 2018 video game Red Dead Redemption 2. Player progression in the single-player story does not affect the multiplayer game.

Upon entering the game world, players customize a character and are free to explore the environment alone or in a "posse" group. There are also organized activities for individuals and groups, both cooperative and against other groups. As players complete activities throughout the game world, they receive experience points to raise their characters in rank and receive bonuses, thereby progressing in the game.

Dispersed throughout the game world are events and missions in which up to 16 players can partake individually or with a posse group. Event types include a deathmatch mode devoid of firearms and a race mode by horseback. Players are notified when a competitive event begins somewhere in the game world and are given the option to immediately travel to the event. Alternatively, players can join specific events at will. Outside of events, non-playable character ("strangers") in the game world offer missions, such as contract killings or camp raidings.

Up to four players can join a temporary, ad hoc posse group for the duration of a game session. Alternatively, for a fee, up to seven players can join a persistent posse that regenerates when its leader comes online. Within a persistent posse, players can customize the group's style and track player stats. Friendly fire can be disabled so that teammates do not injure each other.

Red Dead Online adds several new systems atop the single-player mode's gameplay. In addition to in-game cash, which can be used for supplies, Online adds gold, a second in-game currency used to purchase luxury and special items. Players acquire gold nuggets by completing challenges, and can convert 100 nuggets into gold bars. Rather than having to travel to a town's store, online player characters can order supplies anywhere from a handheld catalog. The orders become available for pickup in any town's post office or the player's camp. Online also introduces "ability cards", in which players can activate one active and three passive powers for their characters. Players receive these cards by rising in rank or direct purchase, and can then upgrade the cards with in-game currency or experience points.

In addition, playing Red Dead Online requires that the player own a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 before the player can access it online
