Spotted: Legendary Mud Runner and Snow Bucks
Now on Red Dead Online
Naturalists roaming the Heartlands of New Hanover or the forests of West Elizabeth need to hone their tracking skills and stay alert to spot Legendary Bucks. The mythical Legendary Mud Runner Buck – which distinguishes itself from its more common counterparts with its aggressive nature and spotted coat – has been spotted in the southern Heartlands near Flat Iron Lake. The watchful and nimble Legendary Snow Buck can be found regularly grazing near the Aurora Basin.
Photograph, track, stun and sample these animals in all their natural splendor, and Harriet will happily reward you for your effort. An alternative is to hunt the animals, skin them, and give the pelts to Gus to have them made into wearable trophies.
These Legendary Bucks seem to be mainly active during the day when it is dry.
When you deliver Legendary Buck samples to Harriet, you will receive 50% extra XP (plus Role XP) and a monetary payment. And while Gus can’t make jackets from intact Legendary Buck carcasses and skins, he’ll gladly take them off your hands for an additional 50% RDO$.
Shop from Gus
In addition to offering an extra 50% payout on intact Legendary Buck carcasses and skins, Gus will gladly help you craft the Mud Runner Coat or Snow Coat.
