Legendary cougar is one of the animals added to Red Dead Online in update 1.20. There are several variations of it, including the Sapa and Maza cougar. They have unique pelts that can be turned into new garment sets, and you can collect samples from them if you’re a naturalist. Finding them is a bit tricky – they appear only in very specific locations, in specific conditions, and literally everyone is after them right now. If you’re having trouble finding them, this guide will show you Red Dead Online legendary cougar locations, to help you on your quest.
How to spawn legendary cougar?
Some species prefer the dark, and all of them are more likely to appear when the weather is dry and clear. The Sapa cougar also has a naturalist rank requirement, so make sure you complete some collections before trying to hunt it. If you’re in the correct location and you’re not getting the message that a legendary animal is nearby, try joining another session – that usually helps.
Legendary Maza Cougar location
You can find the Legendary Maza Cougar in the area around the Sea of Corronado, in the far west of the map, in New Austin. It mostly appears at night. Make sure you have some pheromones with you, to help find it faster. Once you have its attention, climb onto a rock to avoid getting mauled.
Where to find Legedary Sapa Cougar?
The Legendary Sapa Cougar first appears through a mission from Harriet. You’ll need to be at least a level 5 naturalist for it to show up. When it does, simply accept it and follow the tracks. You’ll have to fight off some poachers if you want to keep the animal alive, which you should if you care about your relationship with Harriet.
Maza Coat garment set
Maza coat is an outfit you can craft after selling the pelt of a Legendary Maza cougar to a trapper. It’s a pitch black coat with a fur lapel and a cougar’s head for a hat. It’ll cost you around $750.
