Red Dead Online Naturalist Role

The Naturalist Frontier Pursuit added in Red Dead Online’s latest update gives players two choices: study or poach. Both options are available immediately after purchase. There are two characters that lead the Naturalist’s progression: Harriet Davenport, the conservationist; and Gus McMillian, the hunter. 

Gus’ role in Red Dead Online is similar to that of the trapper in single player. Gus crafts garment sets, trinkets, clothing, equipment, and ammunition from high quality pelts and Legendary Animal trophies.

We have not unlocked all Garment Sets in Red Dead Online yet. Garment Sets are unlocked by selling Gus the Legendary Animal’s pelt after hunting it.

Garment Sets

Garment Sets stem from the Legendary Animals. Obtain the missions from Harriet but kill the animal instead of sampling it. Do not worry, the animal respawns each mission, so there’s no limit to how often you can kill it or sample it. These animals always take multiple shots to kill without ruining quality. However, do not use explosive ammo, it will damage it and end the mission instantly.

Due to the bugs associated with Legendary Animal spawns at higher levels, we haven’t unlocked the free roam items yet.

Clothing is made up of six categories: Hats, Bandoliers, Coats, Gauntlets, Gloves, and Pants. It’s possible as you progress in the role, more categories become available and more options are available within these categories. 

Because there are Legendary Animals of multiple colors (Dark, Light, Red and Blonde, and Patterned, according to the journal), all the clothing items have different color variations. 

We’ve compiled a list of all the items and their requirements.

Trinkets are additional, expensive, items Gus can craft depending on the parts provided. The Naturalist role requires pulling resources from other roles. For example, Harriet becomes upset with you if you kill animals too often, which may be an issue for hardcore Traders. Gus is the same way. The trinkets require both animal parts and jewellery from the Collector role. 

Despite taking items from the Collector, Trinkets will buff the player in some way. Each buff will be listed with the item. 

  • Beaver Tooth Trinket – $795
    • Two Beaver Teeth, Calumet Turquoise Earrings
    • Permanently slows degradation for all weapons by 10 percent
  • Buck Antler Trinket – $775
    • Buck Antlers, Dane Topaz Necklace
    • The player has a higher chance of receiving better quality pelts and skins from animals in perfect condition.
  • Javelina Tusk Trinket – $500
    • Javelina Tusk, Elliston Carved Bracelet
    • Permanently increases the player’s horse bonding rate by 10 percent.
  • Ram Horn Trinket – $550
    • Bighorn Horn, Aubrey Onyx Ring
    • Picking Creeping Thyme, Oregano, and Wild Mint yields twice as many herbs.
  • Snowy Egret Trinket – $800
    • Three Snowy Egret Plumes
    • Braxton Amethyst Necklace


Equipment is part of the upgrades available based on role progression. At least some of them are. There are two categories for equipment, weapons and “made-to-order saddle bags”.


As far as weapons go, so far there is only one option and it is a variation of a weapon already in the game.

  • Horned Variant (Improved Bow) – 12 Gold Bars
    • Unlockable, not available right away, but given the cost, probably doesn’t require supplies to craft it.

Made-To-Order Saddle Bags:

Saddle bags can be purchased from Gus but must be equipped at the stables.

  • Bigpaw Saddle Bag – 8 Gold Bars
    • No supplies. Gold purchase and available right away. 
  • Softcoat Saddle Bag – $205
    • Two Perfect Beaver Pelts


Not as interesting as the other categories, but Gus does provide ammunition. These do not require the player to donate supplies. They can be bought right away.

  • Arrows (x5) – $0.20
  • Varmint Rifle Catridges (x60) – $0.40
  • Nitro Express Rifle Cartridges (x4) – $0.40
