Naturalists are in for a treat this week in Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online, as a number of new Legendary Animals can now be found in the wild.
Those who make a trip to the Kamassa River can find the Legendary Teca Gator, while those near the Lannahechee River can find themselves the ill-tempered Legendary Sun Gator.
Naturalists have a choice to make though; one could bring samples back to Harriet to fill their Animal Field Guide and gain XP for the Naturalist Role. Alternatively, one could hunt and skin the gators for Gus Macmillan, who will gladly use the leather for a coat.
No matter what you choose to do, Legendary Alligator Samples and Skin Sales will net players a 50% XP and pay out bonus from now through August 10. Hunters that take down the Teca Gator can get a special colorway of the O’Quinn Hat, while those who take down the Sun Gator will get themselves a special colorway of the Helsby Gloves. These two items can be found in Offers & Rewards within 48 hours.
Those that deliver the Teca and Sun gator hides to Gus’ Store will allow him to craft the Teca Coat and Sun Coat that can provide warmth for any upcoming expeditions. Those that craft any Legendary Alligator Coat will receive a bonus unique colorway of the new Corchado Poncho.
