Red Dead Wiki

The Legendary Wolf is a rare species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


The larger size of this wolf, and the distinguishable brown and black fur, make this animal easily recognizable compared to other wolves in the area. As a carnivore, its diet consists of deer, mountain goats, as well as small animals like bird, beavers and fish. A Bow with Poison Arrows, or a rifle, is considered to be the best weapon to hunt this animal with.

Killing this animal will give the player the opportunity to craft the rare Wolf Heart Trinket, the Legendary Cougar/Wolf Vest and the Legendary Wolf Batwing Chaps.


The legendary wolf can be found in Grizzlies East, southwest of Wapiti Indian Reservation near the geysers.


  • According to Compendium, A Bow with a Poison Arrow are the best weapon for hunting Legendary Wolf. However, Legendary animals always give a clean pelt or skin, so any weapons can be used.
    • Technically, rifles or shotguns with Explosive Cartridges are the best weapon.
  • The wolf is highly likely to ambush the player so crouching and moving slowly will help to track it without alerting it.
    • Alternatively, players can draw a gun beforehand and simply let the wolf approach players instead (it always howls before charging).
