Rockstar is banning Red Dead Online players who use mods, so now you know

Got mods? Get out of town.

Since the recent launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, multiple mods for the game are now available, and although you can use these in the single-player campaign without consequences (besides breaking the game, I mean, or maybe breaking your mom’s heart), it’s a no-no in Red Dead Online.

According to Rockstar’s terms of service, “modding in online games, exploiting or abusing game mechanics in online games, participating in ‘money lobbies,’ account boosting, account ‘recovery’, promoting methods of abuse/glitching, promoting modding of online games, manipulating protected game data and code, or interfering with other players’ gameplay experience” is subject to suspension or even a permanent ban. Them’s the rules.

Undaunted by the rules, however, one player has confirmed with fan website that, in fact, the rules are the rules, citing a 30-day suspension and a total Red Dead Online account reset for his crimes against the states of West Elizabeth, New Hanover, Ambarino, Lemoyne, New Austin, and the Rockstar Social Club. Sucks to be that guy.
