Raccoon Mountain Hat in RDR2 is a hat you can get from the stranger in Valentine Saloon. The stranger, called Jon, only appears in Valentine in a specific time window, and even then, you shouldn’t just attack him out of the blue. Fortunately, there is a way to annoy him enough to swing at you, and get his raccoon hat in Red Dead Redemption 2. Our Red Dead Redemption 2 Raccoon Mountain Hat guide will show you where to find the stranger called Jon, and how to get his raccoon hat.
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).
