Talismans & Trinkets are craftable items in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.


Talismans and trinkets are unique items that give the player a bonus perk when obtained, like the Rabbit's Foot from the previous game. Most of them are crafted from parts of Legendary Animals - each one gives the player an unique item upon skinning (which cannot be sold to the Trapper, unlike the pelt and/or carcass), which is then crafted into a trinket/talisman at any fence. This consumes the item and requires a bit of cash.

In general, trinkets only require one crafting material but talismans require three. They are crafted from one legendary animal part, one piece of jewelry, and one unique reward found either in the game world or from a collection sidequest; the only exception is the raven claw talisman, which only requires an item obtained by finishing a certain sidequest. While harder to make, they also offer stronger bonuses than trinkets.
