Legendary Mud Runner and Snow Bucks in Red Dead Online This Week
The Legendary Mud Runner Buck and the Legendary Snow Buck will make their way to Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online this week.
The Legendary Mud Runner Buck, which has an aggressive nature and piebald coat, has been spotted in the south of The Heartlands by Flat Iron Lake. The vigilant Legendary Snow Buck has also been spotted, and can be found grazing near the Aurora Basin. Note that these bucks are most active at daylight, during dry weather.
Those that track, photograph, sedate and sample them for Harriet can net themselves some rewards. However, players can hunt and skin these beasts before bringing their pelts back to Gus for a chance to adorn your trophies.
Players will receive 50% more XP (along with Role XP) and monetary payouts for returning Legendary Buck samples to Harriet while those who hunt these Legendary Bucks can sell their carcasses and pelts to Gus for 50% more RDO$. In the case of the latter, Gus can help you craft the Mud Runner Coat or the Snow Coat.
A new Free Roam Event in Red Dead Online this week invites all players to photograph animals in their natural habitats, competing against others to rack up the highest number of points. Players must photograph as many different animals as they can as close as they can, all while keeping in mind the quality of their composition. Victors will net themselves generous RDO$ & XP payouts, whie the best individual photograph in each event will also earn a reward.
Those who think they are expert gunslingers could very well meet their match with the Hardcore Series. Make sure to keep an eye on the Featured Series tile for the occasional Hardcore Series in the weeks ahead. All this week, players can jump into the Hardcore variations of Spoils of War, Overrun, Hostile Territory, and Most Wanted.
New emote additions to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue this week include Hypnotize, Sniff, Check the Time, Coin Bite, Prayer, Cougar Snarl, and Shrug.
