Looks like there’s another Legenday creature being sighted around the wilderness in Red Dead Online. According to those living near Braithwaiet Manor, it seems that the Iwakta Panther is the one behind lost animals and even some laborers. Those with a well-trained eye can easily track its movements, but only those brave can take a sample, or event hunt, this rather cunning beast.

To launch this new Sighting Mission, just speak to Harriet at her shop. Be sure to stock up on Sedative Ammo before you go on your way.

For those who want to go the lethal route, bring the Iwakta Panther hide to Gus’ Store once you manage to take down the creature. This unlocks the Iwakta Coat for purchase. That’s not all as Gus Macmillan is also offering the Improved Bow Variant – Jaguar for sale. This one is made from dense bone and coarse panther hide.

Players that get either the Iwakta Coat or Improved Bow Variant get to earn a free Single Bandolier as a Reward. Speaking of Gus, he’s also selling Trapper Hats and Saddlebags at 40% off.
