In our Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Animals guide we'll show you the location of the 16 rarest animals in the game. To complete 100% of the adventure, you only need to find and kill 5 of them, but hunting them all will guarantee you complete the Compendium. All 16 Legendary Animals are also required to achieve the Zoologist and Trophy Skinner objectives.
Red Dead Redemption 2 : Legendary Animals, Skins and Rare Clothes
Killing a legendary animal and skinning it will allow you to obtain some very rare skins. These skins can be sold to the special merchant who will unlock unique clothing for you to wear during the adventure.
Fortunately there is no need to go lightly with legendary animals, this means that whether you kill them with a knife or dynamite sticks, you will still get the skins.
The legendary animal hunt begins in Chapter 2 when Hosea takes the protagonist on a hunt for a legendary bear. Hosea will also provide you with a map of the legendary animals, but it's incomplete and inaccurate (to see it just go to the Documents -> Maps -> Legendary Animals Map menu).
Fortunately we've made this guide that goes where Hosea's map can't go, showing you the location of all the legendary animals in the game!
Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Find and Hunt Legendary Animals...
Once you are close enough to the location of the legendary animal, its icon with a crown on its head will appear on the game map as a sign that you are on the right track.
Itmay happen that you don't find the legendary animal despite the symbol on the map, this is because RDR 2 is very dynamic and full of natural events that affect others. So if you don't see the message "You have entered the territory of the legendary animal. Hunt this legendary animal by finding and inspecting the clues" put a field fire, rest and try to go back until the message appears on the screen.
Now you have to press both analogues to inspect the area until you find tracks. Usually there are 3 tracks in total and then you can finally find the animal.
