Red Dead Redemption 2 features legendary animals who play an important role in crafting useful items for the game. You have to hunt down these legendary animals in RDR2 in order to kill and skin them for their pelts that can be used for crafting. The Legendary Bear is one such animal that the players can hunt down in Red Dead Redemption 2 and in this guide we will show you how to kill this beast.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Bear Location
The first time that you are going to encounter the legendary bear, will be in the quest called Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego. After your quest, make sure to save the game so in case you die, you have a backup. Once you are done with the quest and if you think that you are ready to face the Legendary Bear and you have the equipment and weapons to hunt him down then go ahead to the Bear’s lair.
How to Kill the Legendary Bear
Head to where you encountered the Grizzly Bear and keep a rifle, repeater or a shotgun with you. Keep High Velocity or Express Bullets for ammunition. Make sure that all your health, stamina and Dead Eye is fully regenerated. Once you are at the location, activate your Eagle Eyes skill by L3/LS + R3/RS and look around for anything that will give you an indication for where to find the Bear.
You will soon find a piece of evidence and you have to look around for more. Looking around for the evidence is going to take you straight to the legendary Bear. Keep your ammo and weapons on point and activate your Dead Eye ability. Try to be subtle while taking the aim so that the Grizzly Bear has fewer chances of seeing you. The best place to aim at the legendary bear will be its head, heart or lungs.
If you are using a rifle then zoom in for the aim or use a shotgun while activating the Dead Eye ability. The Dead Eye ability is going to save you if the bear charges at you. You can also climb at the rocks so the bear can’t reach there. Try to be as efficient as you can and it is going to kill the bear more quickly without it charging at you and possibly killing you.
