Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Animal Locations - How to Track Legendary Animals in Red Dead Redemption 2

Legendary animals are scattered far and wide over the map of Red Dead Redemption 2, and this guide will reveal the location of every one.

There are a finite number of legendary animals found in the wilderness of Red Dead Redemption 2, and it can be a tough time tracking them all down. In our Red Dead Redemption 2 legendary animals guide, we'll be detailing everything there is to know about the unique animals, including a list of the various legendary animal locations in Red Dead Redemption 2.

But if you instead need any additional information on Rockstar’s latest game, you’ll want to head over to our Red Dead Redemption 2 guides hub. Here you find a complete beginner’s guide to the game, as well as our ten essential tips to surviving the wild west.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Animal Locations

Just below, we’ll list out the locations of the legendary animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 that we’ve uncovered for ourselves so far. This list is by no means complete, and we’ll be adding to it whenever we uncover the location of a new elite animal.

Legendary Moose Location

For the legendary moose, you’re going to need to head into the very northeastern corner of the entire Red Dead Redemption 2 map. This is directly north from Annesburg and Roanoke Ridge.

Legendary Grizzly Bear Location

Smack bang in the middle of nowhere, you can find the legendary grizzly bear. You can either head directly east from Bacchus Station, or north from Emerald Ranch to reach this location.

Legendary Wolf Location

To locate the legendary wolf in Red Dead Redemption 2, you're going to want to head to Bacchus Station, and head west from there. You can locate the legendary wolf itself immediately north of the train tracks.

Legendary Beaver Location

For the legendary beaver in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re going to want to head into the very eastern portion of the entire map. You can find the legendary beaver east of the Van Horn Trading Post.

Legendary Boar Location

Right around Bluewater Marsh, you can find the legendary boar, looking for a fight. If you’re looking for the marsh itself, it’s directly north from Saint Denis.

Legendary Alligator Location

Just north and slightly west of Saint Denis, you can find the legendary alligator in the bayou. Come prepared, because this elite animal puts up a tough fight.

Legendary Fox Location

Just west of the Bayou and north from Rhodes, you can find the legendary fox.

Legendary Coyote Location

Just south and slightly west from Emerald Ranch, you can find the legendary coyote among the trees near Scarlett.

Legendary Buck Location

The legendary buck is definitely going to be one of the tougher creatures to track in Red Dead Redemption 2, since it'll bolt at the first sign of the danger. You can find it by heading northwest of Strawberry, and west of Mount Shann.

Legendary White Bison Location

Far out to the west in Ambarino, you can find the legendary white bison in the snow. Come prepared with your warmest gear for this creature.

Big Horn Ram Location

The legendary big horn ram can be found just west from Valentine, west from the river.

Legendary Pronghorn Location

To find this unique creature, you'll want to head to Fort Mercer, and then east.

Legendary Cougar Location

In the very west of the map, past Tumbleweed, you can find the legendary cougar.

Legendary Tatanka Bison Location

The legendary tatanka bison can be located southwest from Thieves Landing, and just south from Stillwater Creek.

How to Unlock Legendary Animals in Red Dead Redemption 2

During Chapter 2 of Red Dead Redemption 2, Hosea Matthews will provide you with the map pictured just below. This depicts all the rough areas in which you can find the legendary animals scattered throughout the Wild West, but it’ll still take some work to actually track them down. Don't worry if you don't tackle these legendary animal missions until late on in the game as they'll still be available.

Firstly, when you’re in the rough area of a legendary animal, a message will appear in the top left corner of the screen. It reads “You have entered legendary animal territory. Hunt this legendary animal by finding and inspection clues.” When you see this, press both the left and right analog sticks at the same time to initiate the detective-like vision from Arthur Morgan.

In this special mode, you can see the tracks of unique animals. Press the right bumper, and you can lock onto the track, leaving it visible and glowing after you’ve exited the detective mode. You then need to find three clues to the legendary animal, which are marked by a column of light coming out from the ground, and then you can lock onto a final track to lead you to the legendary animal.

As of right now, this is a list of all the legendary animals that we’ve encountered so far in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now that we’re done here, you can check out our Red Dead Redemption 2 Cheats guide, or our main Red Dead Redemption 2 Hunting page for some tips and tricks.
