New naturalists missions and items in Red Dead Online

by on August 25, 2020

It’s a new week which means new Red Dead Online Missions, items, rewards and discounts are waiting for you Naturalists. Read on to see what shiny new things you can work towards.

Sighting Mission

There’s talk of an untamed beast from the dark ages roaming around the swamps outside Saint Denis. Naturalists at Rank 5 and above can decide to take on this new beast by requesting it from Harriet at her shop.

If you do you’ll come face to face with the Legendary Banded Gator! If you go the patient you can sedate it and take it back to Harriet. The guns a-blazing style will work too if that’s more your style. You can then take the gator skin to Gus for a new coat.

Gus’ Store

As mentioned the gator skin will unlock the opportunity to craft and purchase the Banded Coat.

Not only that, craft any coat at Gus’ Store and you’ll net yourself a free vest. On top of that, if you craft anything you’ll receive a Reward for 25 Free Trader Goods. And lastly for Gus’ Store, craft a trinket and you’ll get a Reward for a free Poncho.
