How to Get Raccoon Hat in RDR2 in Valentine?

To get the Raccoon Hat in Red Dead Redemption 2 in Valentine, you first have to find the stranger called Jon. He hangs out in the Valentine saloon (Smithfields), starting Chapter 2. The raccoon hat stranger only appears between 12 PM and 6 AM. So, make sure you enter the saloon in that window, and you’ll see Jon sitting at the table and drinking. Depending on when you enter the saloon, he’ll be at some point of his drunken rant.

To actually get the hat, you just have to stand close to him as he keeps talking about how everyone is useless. He gets progressively angrier as he goes. At some point, he’s gonna get up and take a swing at you. Since he attacked you, you won’t have trouble with the law if you fight back. So, that’s exactly what you should do. Beat him into a mushy pulp until he stays down. Then, simply pick up the raccoon hat off the ground. You can also loot him for other valuables. Now, the raccoon hat doesn’t glow, so we’re not sure if you get to keep it in your inventory (for more info on that, check out our How To Keep Stolen Hats guide).

    Jon donated his hat to me after a brief disagreement, it’s been a firm favourite for me. However, just last night whilst out searching the mountains for a ne’er do well, I was jumped by a cougar. After the inevitable skinning of the mangy cat, I went back to collect me treasured hat, only to find it was ruined! I couldn’t pick it up again, it looked burned. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Now I’m going to have to go Legendary raccoon hunting.
