Finally found the Legendary Winyan Bison by Lake Isabella after almost a week of searching and lobby hopping, slapped that pelt on my horse and went to fast travel. Arrived in San Denis with every pelt I had on my horse except the legendary pelt.



I think I asked before, but is there a goon discord for Red Dead stuff yet?

For hunting legendaries, keep a few legendary pheromones on you. The two times I used them when I was pursuing a legendary animal it ran back toward the pheromones making for an easy kill.

Anyone gotten the Marble Fox yet? I know it spawns up near Colter, spoilers I guess? but I can't be assed to sit up there for too long because there is very little to do.

Yeah, both my friend and I. I found it while hunting wolves and my friend got a notification for it as soon as he fast traveled there.

Glad to hear it. I'll probably fast travel up there once or twice every session, I was just worried fast traveling would somehow stop it from spawning.

Anyone got any tips on making a online character with a on hosed up face? I got a free face change coupon but I don't want to blow it.



(In-game shots, but lines on tv due to phone camera)








I made her with the help of my wife, after dicking around with the character creator for an hour or two. It's really not that bad once you get the hang of it and get an idea of what you want your character to look like

You want to always really define the chin structure, it helps the whole face, regardless of what heritage preset you do. You also want to define the lips, keep the eye and nose ratio in a good place as well as the mouth, and make sure the Jawline matches up with rest of the chin and mouth. Cheeks should be defined somewhere towards the middle, but don't go sullen or heavy, it will make your character look like they have mumps

For male or female, find a good defining feature of the face you want to emphasize, and pick your hairstyle/ beard around that. For woman use light makeup, except for the feature you want to draw attention to, like the eyes or lips, and apply that a little heavier (wife taught me this lol)

For male characters, use beards and facial hair to define weak jaws or give the character some personality. And for god sakes go into the complexion settings and turn most of that poo poo to none or as minimal as possible, you will look a lot less like an oatmeal raisin cookie

Hope this helps!

One thing to note is that all the makeup options (as well as facial blemishes, scars, etc) have an opacity slider in the character creator that is missing from the in-game appearance editor at the barber.

Also loving this

Do your hair stuff at the barber, but NEVER touch the makeup, unless you want to look like an 80s star

Also, I have really been digging the Naturalist update overall, but god are these dcs on ps4 ridiculous today and two days ago

Is there a way to fix this poo poo from my end, or is everybody else experiencing it?

The PS4 has a screenshot button. I don't know about Xbox but I doubt they'd led free hype go either.

Protip: Make sure to remap the share button to screenshot. It was a long press for a quick screenshot for me until I made the menu the long press. If that was the default holy poo poo why.

Bigass elk (Inehati or whatever), not too much of a problem.

Dumbass boar (Hennigan's Stead) kept attacking me while I was was whacking poachers. Mmmm, bacon.

Cross Fox started me in western St Denis, looking for a poacher shpping yard. Turns out someone *loving CAUGHT IT* and was shipping it out from the docks. Get there, murder poachers, and the fox is just standing there like it was already taxidermied. Couldn't shoot it, photograph it, blow it up with dynamite...

Invisible cage. THANKS ROCKSTAR

Ended up tranking and harvesting it, will murder later.

Finished out chasing the Moonstone Wolf, which started auspiciously with a snake going full aggro and biting me four times before I'd even tracked thirty feet.

Wolf hoodie is sweet, though.

my friends and i would have had so many hours in online if we could just do private sessions like in gta5. we just wanna hang out, do cowboy poo poo, and gently caress around for a bit, like in gta 5 when we would ride the train and time it so people would jump over it as we went under.

like we would have been all about poker night in rdr2 at launch, and even once they put it in its with rules that ruin it.

Iím not certain, but Harriet seems to have about 6 options right now as missions.

Others can be found in freeroam events like Animal Tagging and Legendary Protection.

A lot are just random finds in freeroam.

^ Pretty certain on the above. I THINK Rockstar is also cycling through a bunch that come in and out of availability. Because theyíre trying to keep players around but donít understand what actually retains players (such as not being dicked with by cheaters all the loving time)

Yeah. Harriet only has specific variants of animals, and currently no gator. The rest are free roam on your map, with spawn criteria that you have to stumble across/google for. The two gators are free roam, and their criteria is in the announcement newspost.

So far I've seen Harrier offer:

Cross Fox
Night Beaver
Moonstone Wold
Payta Bison
Inehati (whatever) Elk
hosed if I can remember the name Boar (Hennigan's Stead)

There's a couple I've seen noted that are PS4 exclusives, as well as the fossils.

I've yet to have any notice of a Legendary other than when I'm doing a Hippiechick mission, and I've been making regular circuits of the claimed gator spawns on the coastline near Shady Belle. Lots of *regular* gators, mind, but never anything else. And the other one appears to be "wander around Gator Central Station" in the swamps around Lakay/Lagras.

Thereís some new audio cues Iíve noticed since the update (PS4, but assuming all platforms) and thereís one I havenít figured out yet. It sounds like someone tapping on a wooden block and varies in speed as I wander around the map where I hear it. It doesnít seem to be directional in any way, the volume doesnít go up or down just the speed but not based on which way Iím traveling.

Iím assuming it has something to do with the Legendary Animals but I have yet to encounter one outside of the Harriet missions.

I once had the wooden thwonk sound play constantly, over and over and over again while I was wandering around the swamp. It was starting to trigger an anxiety attack, before it stopped. I thought I was going to stumble across Jumanji or something.

The servers seem to be dropping out occasionally. You'll get dropped constantly when trying to reconnect. Haven't found a solution yet other than just waiting for it to be fixed. That said I'm only on Xbox.

Spawn in to do a daily last night... oh hey, kinda quiet. Hard to find critters. Hard to find *people*. Ghost wagons rolling around, all uncrewed.

What a fine time to chase the Sapa Cougar, right?

Got me a picture of it as it was mauling a poacher, got about four rounds of Xanax in , but it still ran too fast (and HORF wouldn't respond) so it got away. Should have just Carcano'd it.

As it turns out you cannot do the legendary animal protection mission with just four people. Well, not until they get rid of animation priority. Nothing quite like affectionately patting your horse when it and your own cores are drained and the item wheel is locked for the duration, preventing you from shooting back at the dozens of enemies or healing yourself or your horse.

Also keep an eye out for dipshits who lasso you and drag you towards the predator animals. Keep a bow with explosive arrows handy in case.

loving Sapa Cougar, running aroud eating all the cocaine gum and horse meth or something. Got it tracked down to a cage, arrowed all the poachers before releasing it from a safe perch, two shots or real ammo and fuuuuuuck it's gone. Even with level 17 Naturalist buffs and pheremones, fucker still got in the wind.

In better news, tried a different PC solo lobby thing, got several hours in with only one disconnect, and legit found the bison near Emerald Ranch and the Teca gator. Did the Sapa and the Hennigan's boar, which I should have checked completion on because I already had that hoodie Cripps loving loved that Legendary skin and tusk, though.

If they could just fix the cheater problem, I could deal with the rest. As it is, most freeroam events are unplayable. Especially if they're PVP, but the cheaters like disrupting the cooperative ones as well.

and then there's loving up free roam in general. Random explosions, animal spawns, time of day changes. Little things that break the session and cause some NPCs (like Harriet) to not spawn.

It's too much.
Ya sounds great.
