Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that leans rather heavily on its survival-inspired elements, and part of that entails allowing players to fish and hunt for different types of animals. Among those animals are several Legendary variations that are harder to find, more difficult to kill, and stand a chance of dropping Legendary hides and pelts. Finding them all can be a bit of a chore; fortunately, we've got the location of every Legendary Animal in Red Dead Redemption 2 featured below.
Legendary Animal hunting locations and tips
Legendary Animals are rare in Red Dead Redemption 2, and players would be wise not only to approach them with caution, but to kill them with consideration. They can be tough to take down, but assuming players make keen use of their weapons, they stand a far better chance of earning a perfect hide.
