Red Dead Redemption 2 has plenty of wildlife which includes legendary animals. In this guide, we are going to look into how you can locate, skin and kill the legendary Alligator also known as the Bull Gator in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Alligator
The legendary Alligator or Bull Gator is one of the 14 legendary animals in the game that you can hunt and skin. Doing so will get you the Legendary Alligator Skin and Legendary Alligator Tooth which you can use for crafting.
The Legendary Alligator Tooth can be used to craft the Alligator Tooth Talisman. This item decreases the speed of the Dead Eye core by 10%.
Location of the Legendary alligator
You can find the legendary alligator south of Lagras. In the marshy swamps north/west of Lakay. In the Bayou NWA region of Lemoyne. Check out the map below for a more clear location:
If you reach this location and cannot find a legendary alligator in Red Dead Redemption 2, then be sure that you have reached Chapter 6. The alligator will spawn once you beat That’s Murfree Country.
How to Kill Legendary Gator in Red Dead 2
Legendary animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 do not simply appear. You need to track them down. You will need some powerful weapons in order to take down the alligator. A shotgun should come in handy and you should not have your bow with you. Once you have the weapons of your choice, ride to the area marked on the map above.
When you enter the territory of a legendary animal, a Black box pops up on the right side of the screen. This will indicate that the legendary alligator is nearby. Move slowly until you see a question mark appear on the screen. This will start the hunt.
If you do not see either of the two then you might not have completed the Master Hunter Challenges. You need to complete those in order to be able to hunt the legendary alligator in Red Dead Redemption 2. Once you see the white question mark, you need to investigate the clues. These can be droppings, fur, or damage the animal left behind.
This will create a path. Use both analog sticks at the same time to enter Eagle Eye mode to be able to see the path. Follow the path and when you reach the end, enter Eagle Eye mode again. Now you need to investigate the clues that the animal has left behind again. You will need to do this three times in total.
Once you have done this, you will be led to the animal. Target the head of the legendary alligator in order to deal the most damage. You cannot shoot the pelt and legendary animals will run away. So, you need to be quick about it and use powerful weapons. The following are some of the weapons that you can use to get a perfect quality kill:
- Predator Bait
- Bow with Poison Arrow
- Bow with Improved Arrow
- Poison Throwing Knife
- Rifle with Regular
- Rifle with Split Point
- Rifle with High Velocity
- Rifle with Express
- Sniper with Regular
- Sniper with Split Point
- Sniper with High Velocity
- Sniper with Express
- Shotgun with Slug
Once the gator is dead, you can skin it. If you could not kill it then you can go back to the camp. Sleep for 72 hours and come back to try again.
Using and Selling Legendary Animal Parts
Now that you have the different parts, you can use them or sell them. The teeth that you get from the gator can be used to get the Alligator Tooth Talisman from the Fence. Similarly, you can sell the skin to a Trapper to get money. By doing so you can unlock unique gear and cosmetic items.
This marks the end of our Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Alligator guide.
