Last week Red Dead Online finally released a massive update which introduced the Naturalist role. Looks like the fun isn't over yet, as this week it’s still about the Naturalist, particularly some bonuses arriving their way. Before we look into that, let’s take a look at two new Legendary Animals set to make their presence in the game.

So what about these Legendary beasts? Well, it looks like one was sighted somewhere in the area of the Kamassa River and it’s none other than the Legendary Teca Gator. Unique and dangerous, this beast should only be approached by the bravest of Naturalists. Meanwhile over in Lannahechee River is the Legendary Sun Gator who prefers to make an appearance during foggy mornings.

Are the rewards worth the risk? There’s going to be two ways to go about it. Naturalists can bring samples back to Harriet in order to gain XP for the role and be able to fill their Animal Field Guide. As a reward, Naturalists get 50% XP pay out bonus starting today until August 10.

Then there’s the Hunter option, which requires you to hunt and skin gators and hand them over to Gus. Those who take down the Teca Gator get the special colorway of the O’Quinn hat. Meanwhile, those who beat the Sun Gator get the special colorway of the Helsby gloves.

Visit the Trapper Store

Still on the topic of Hunters, Gus Macmillan is offering fine clothing and accessories. This is going to expand each week as new Legendary Animals are discovered. Deliver the gator hides to Gus and he will give you the means to craft the Tera Coat and Sun Coat. Those who craft the Legendary Alligator Coat get to receive the Corchado Poncho as a bonus.

There is also the new Alligator variant of the Improved Bow, which should help players hunt a little better. Just don’t visit the store too often, as Harriet may not approve of it.

Bonuses and Benefits

This week, all players get a 30% discount on all Horses, Pistols, Tents, Camp Flags, and Camp Themes. This being the time of Naturalists, there are one-time benefits beginning today and running until August 24 which include:
