In addition to performing missions or taking part in games against other players, in Red Dead Online you can hunt for animals and fish. Below you will read all the most important information related to these activities.
Hunting in Red Dead Online
Animals and birds are a good source of natural ingredients. You can hunt for them to get meat, leather and other useful materials. You can prepare and eat many types of hunted animals and also sell dead animals at the butcher's shop.
Remember that when hunting, you have to choose the right weapon not to damage your pet's skin. If, for example, you shoot a rabbit with a shotgun, the skin will be worth very little. The rule is, therefore, simple - the death of an animal should be quick and the best way to keep the skin intact is to use the bow.
When it comes to the type of meat, each animal species offers a different quality of meat. In general, the rule is as follows - the larger/more difficult the animal to hunt, the better the quality of the meat. Different types of meat can be used for different recipes.
When it comes to tracking, it looks the same as in Red Dead Redemption 2 - with the difference that now you can be disturbed by other players in the hunt, which can be really annoying. So try to hunt in areas that are not currently visited by other players.
In the Red Dead Redemption 2 story mode, you had the opportunity to learn the basics of hunting. If you need to refresh any of the information, have a look at our website.
Fishing in Red Dead Online
As far as fishing is concerned, it will be unlocked after reaching the rank of 14, i.e. after the first few hours of playing. When you are of the appropriate rank, visit a general store (or use the catalogue) and buy a fishing rod. As with hunting, fishing can be interrupted by other players who are waiting to hunt down an unsuspecting player.
