Legendary alligator is one of the unique animals in Red Dead Redemption 2. You’ll need to hunt down the bull gator for the legendary alligator skin, which is required for crafting several high-end pieces of clothing. A lot of people are having trouble finding this beast, which stalks its prey in the marshes of Lemoyne. In this guide, we’re going to show you Red Dead Redemption 2 legendary alligator location, to help you out on your hunt.
If you were actually looking for proper bulls (the kind with horns), you should take a look at our RDR2 bull locations map.
Where to find legendary alligator in RDR2?
The legendary bull gator cannot be hunted until you finish the chapter 6 mission called That’s Murfree Country. As expected, it can be found in the swamps of Lemoyne afterwards. His domain is north of Saint Denis, in the marsh south of Lagras. Once you enter the area, you’ll get a notification that a legendary animal is nearby. If the tracking skill doesn’t provide you with a clue, try leaving the area and returning.
Make sure you bring heavy hitting weaponry with you, and try to kill the gator using dead eye before he can attack you. If your core is full, and you have a good weapon, you should be able to down him in one go. Use a Carbine with explosive ammo if you prefer long-range, or a shotgun with slug rounds if you like it up close and personal. He’s vicious and incredibly strong, and if you allow him to approach you, you’ll end up dead soon enough.
Once you’ve killed it, skin it to get the legendary alligator skin and legendary alligator tooth. The former can be used by a trapper to craft a vest, hat or a pair of boots, while the latter is used for a unique trinket you can buy from the fence:
- Alligator Tooth Talisman – Slows down Dead Eye core drain by 10%. You’ll need the tooth, a gold jointed bracelet, a pair of vintage civil war handcuffs and $40.
- Legendary Alligator Vest – You’ll need the skin and $35 to pay for costs.
- Legendary Alligator Fowlers – Same as above.
- Legendary Alligator Gambler’s Hat – Apart from the skin, you’ll need two perfect snake skins and $22.
If you lose the pelt before selling it, the trapper will still be able to craft the stuff, but you’ll miss out on the $50 you’d get from selling it.
