Red Dead Redemption 2 Crafting Ingredients for Pearson & Trapper

Crafting ingredients for the trapper & Pearson in RDR2 are a fairly important mechanic in the game. Both Pearson and the trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 require you to go out and get the items they need to craft useful items, and you get most, if not all of them, through hunting. Well, to be fair, the trapper requires you to sell him the animal parts, and resells you his wares, but it’s the same basic principle. Our Red Dead Redemption 2 Crafting Ingredients for Pearson & Trapper guide will show you how many crafting ingredients both NPCs will need to make everything you can get from them.

Trapper & Pearson RDR2 Crafting Ingredients – What you Need

Pearson and the trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 are characters in the game that you can bring various crafting elements you get by hunting animals. Both of them offer different items that you can craft there. Well, the trapper requires you to sell him stuff, and then he resells you various clothing items, and even entire outfits, if you’ve got what he needs. We’re going to provide you with a list of items that both of them require, if you want to get everything that you can from them. Huge props and thank you goes to Reddit user AmeriknGrizzly for his incredibly valuable insight.

RDR2 Pearson Camp Crafting Ingredients List

Pearson, a camp member in Red Dead Redemption 2, doesn’t require too many crafting ingredients; at least, not as many as a trapper. On the other hand, the trapper does have a lot more stuff to sell you. Crafting items at Pearson the butcher gets you all sorts of bonus stuff for the camp, but he also has things for you, such as increasing your satchel, aka inventory slots. Below is the list of stuff that you’ll need to grind out to get everything Pearson has to offer.

Before that, though, a quick aside. To bring carcasses to Pearson, you simply take it to the camp and over to his workbench. A “Donate” prompt will appear as you approach, so simply hit that. If you’ve got a bunch of stuff stowed away on your horse, things are even easier. When you hit the Donate prompt, a list of all the things stowed will pop up, making things easier. Just don’t dilly-dally, since the quality of the carcass goes down as time goes by. Huge thanks to our lovely readers that pointed this stuff out, like adepto_verity, Eddie Hanson, James Morgan, and others.

RDR2 Trapper Crafting Ingredients List

The trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to require a lot, and I do mean a lot of different crafting ingredients. Then again, he does offer a ton of different things that you can craft, including hats and entire outfits.

    How or were do i bring a carcass to pearson were he gets it at camp

    1. A
      adepto_verity

      You bring the carcass to the table where Pearson usually works in the camp. An option to “Donate” should pop up as you approach the table.

      1. E
        Eddie Hanson

        You don’t even need to do that. Keep it stowed on your horse and when you go to donate items at Pearson’s table, all stowed items will appear. Just make sure you do it right after killing the animal as carcasses deteriorate from perfect to good to poor over time.

    2. J
      James Morgan

      Carry the carcass to the Pearson at the Butcher location (its marked with a symbol that looks like a cleaver.) Select donate for crafting and you should see under the materials tab the carcass you wish to contribute. Hope this helps.

    3. W
      Werd

      Look at control bar text, it usually says donate for crafting, provisions or funds. Once it’s donated, back out and bring up crafting prompt with Pearson.

    4. N
      Nico

      Just kill the animal, stow it on your horse, ride to camp, doesn’t matter where you park, leave the carcass on horse and walk to Peaesons butcher stand. Select donate and scroll to your horses storage. The carcass will be available for selection.

    There are several errors in this list.
    Pearson needs 3 cougar pelts and 3 wolf pelts (as opposed to just the 2 each have listed).
    He also needs 2 elk pelts and 2 ox hides. Those are all the ones I noticed, for Pearson anyway.

    Okay so I made a badger hat and lost it I can’t get it off my horse so I have to go make another one???

    1. S
      Sterling

      Nah, any hats you’ve crafted are accessible in your inventory when on your horse or checking horse gear just go past weapons and provisions to horse inventory and it’s on the bottom right corner of the wheel where your hats are.

    2. P
      Pithikos

      Go to wardrobe either in camp or any hotel, go to the hats menu then to crafted hats with r1 and your hat should be there

    I know it’s a bit late, but you’ve also missed off the bears… NOT the black bears, which you have listed, there are Grizzlies too which show up as bear pelt. Think its 2 for the trapper, a saddle & some chaps.
