If you do not outrun people, ride from town to town, and try to bail your gang in Red Dead Redemption 2, chances are you're pretty good at chasing. Tracing and killing animals results in you being fed and lending you crafting materials and goods that you can sell to earn money, better gear Arthur, and generally keep him alive. But for any hunter in Red Dead Redemption 2, the ultimate prize is the various Legendary Animals scattered around the map, their furs dropping unique rewards – if you're smart enough to bring them down.
In Chapter 2, you & # 39; Through a story mission with Hosea, in which he and Arthur hunt a huge grizzly bear, your first legendary beast will be introduced. You can return to hunting later, if you are so inclined, but it is possible to take the bear on your first encounter with him, if you are skilled. If you manage to kill and skin the big grizzly, you'll get a legendary bearskin, a unique item in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2, that can bring you new gear.
The only question is, what exactly do you do with the huge Legendary Bearskin, if you have it? In fact, the skins of Legendary Animals have special requirements ̵
Here's what you need to know about hunting the legendary bear, where to find it, and what to do once you kill it.
Where to Find the Bear
The Easiest Way to Deal with the Legendary Grizzly is in Chapter 2 if you take the mission Exit Pursued from Bruce Ego of Hosea. Arthur and Hosea will set off to find the Grizzly Bear Baharati in the Grizzlies East region north of O & # 39; Creagh & # 39; s Run. Once you're done with the mission, the bear will hang around so you can hunt. Once you've fought the bear during the mission, Hosea will choose to say goodbye to hunting giant killer animals, saying "I'm getting too old for this s —" dialogue. At this point you can choose to stay and finish what you started and take the bear down.
It is worth noting that the bear is not a weakling and it can definitely kill you if you are not careful. If you are not well equipped at this point in the game, you may want to spend some time in the world to get better equipment and to improve Arthur's well-being before committing to the fight. That is, it is possible to kill the bear here and now – we did it with Arthur's stick weapons, which he had in play at the time.
Bring the bear down and you'll be able to skin him a whole bunch of things, including the legendary bearskin. This is the unique item you need to make special clothing that you will not find anywhere else.
You have the legendary bearskin – what now?
Once you have the coat, you will probably be quite confused what to do with it. Regular shopkeepers will not take the coat out of their hands, nor will Pearson in the warehouse. You have to go to a specific person who can handle the coat: the trapper.
When talking to Pearson, he casually mentions the Canadian furry catcher that hangs around the area and marks the location of the trapper on your map. He wandered around, so be sure to look for his symbol on the map before you go. He also has a shop in Saint Denis, in the southeast corner of the map, in the outdoor market, where you can find him reliable.
When you find the trappers, you can check his wares, which are all unique clothes made from the skins of legendary animals. The thing is, you need more than just taking the bear if you want the whole outfit. Various Legendary Bear items also require other furs, as well as spending some money on them. Here's what you need to make every bit of the legendary bear outfit:
- Legendary Bear Head Hat: Legendary Bear Fur, $ 40,
- Legendary Bear Coat: Legendary Bear Fur, Perfect Bison Fur, $ 28
- Legendary Bear Roper: Legendary Bearskin, Perfect Bullfeather, $ 34
To finish off the kit, we need Boar Riding Gloves who need a Perfect Boar Fur and two Perfect Rabbits, and will cost you $ 15.
Although each of the Bear items determines that a Legendary Bearskin is needed, there is only one. Once you've removed the grizzly from Baharit, you've met the bearskin requirement for every item of clothing.
What happens if you lose your bearskin?
You'll probably drag the Legendary Bearskin on to your horse and then set off in a very specific way to track down the trapper, whether you're heading south to Saint Denis or into the wilderness , Throughout this travel season, misfortune can easily strike even the most cautious cowboy, and if your horse falls or you get killed, you'll probably lose the legendary bearskin.
That's fine! No panic. Whether or not you physically carry the coat to the trapper after you have killed and skinned the Baharati Grizzly Bear, the coat is unlocked. This requirement is met on the trapper list, even if you do not really wear the skin up to it. You can still access the garments if you have everything you need for the recipes.
