Red Dead Redemption 2 Trapper Locations
You're going to want to head to a Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 quite a lot, so it's handy to know where you can find one. In this Trapper locations guide we've got the details on the five locations you can find a trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2. Consult the list below for all your Trapper needs.
RDR2 Trapper Location 1
The main Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 can be found on the map point just below, in Saint Denis. As we mentioned previously, the Trapper is an animal specialist, and you can bring him your animal pelts and other items, which he can then use to craft you brand new gear.

But there's not just one Trapper found in Red Dead Redemption 2. He operates a total of five stores, and while you can find the home base in Saint Denis, there's another Trapper at the location just below.
RDR2 Trapper Location 3
As for the third location of the Trapper, there's a small store located just west of Rigg's Station, on the map point marked just below. We should mention that all five Trappers sell exactly the same gear, so there's no benefit in going to one over the other.
RDR2 Trapper Location 4
Fourth, you can find another Trapper operating in the western reaches of West Elizabeth. This Trapper can be located northwest from Strawberry, or southwest from Pronghorn Ranch.
Trapper Location 5
Finally, we've tracked down another Trapper that operates southwest from Blackwater. Keep in mind that you'll be wanted, dead or alive in this region for quite a while at the start of the game due to the failed Blackwater bank robbery, so best leave this one till later.
In the list below are all the unique outfits that the Trapper located in Saint Denis offers. There’s four gear pieces per outfit, and you’re going to have to collect a fair amount of animal materials in order to craft each outfit.
- Bear Hunter outfit.
- Trophy Buck outfit.
- Dreamcatcher outfit.
- Beast of Prey outfit.
- Huntsman outfit.
- Death Roll outfit.
- Stalker outfit.
- Ghost Bison outfit.
- Rattler outfit.
- Wrangler outfit.
- Bronco Buster outfit.
- Marauder outfit.
- Bounty Hunter outfit.
- Desperado outfit.
- Night Wrangler outfit.
- Mountain Man outfit.
The Trapper also sells a total of 26 hats, 7 saddles for your horse, and many more items. They’re not hard to find, but you’re definitely going to want to keep your animal pelts on you and avoid donating them to the camp, if you want to unlock all this Trapper has to offer.
Who is the Trapper?
Basically speaking, the Trapper is a merchant in Red Dead Redemption 2 that deals exclusively in animal equipment. As you can probably tell from the guide above, this means equipment made out of animal items, like hides and pelts, as well as equipment for your horse. If you're ever in need of some items with which to track down animals, head to the Trapper, rather than Pearson back at camp.
