There are various elusive animals that you can hunt in Red Dead Redemption 2 but only a few of them are as dangerous as the panther. For the unversed, Panther is one of the most dangerous enemies that will encounter in RDR 2. You are most likely to find Panther in the woods of Lemoyne.
If you are considering to take one down you will have to be very careful but as the first step, you are required to find the best Panther and use the right weapons to eliminate it. You should know that Panthers can only be found in a few areas. In this guide, we will explain how you can easily find Panthers in RDR 2.
How and Where to find Panthers in RDR2
As we have mentioned above that Panthers can only be found in the Lemoyne regions. There are two more Panther locations in Red Dead Redemption 2 which include the woods southeast of Braithwaite Manor, and the east side of Lagras lake/swamp, just south of Bluewater Marsh. You can check out the following map to see the locations.
- Lemoyne – Southeast of Braithwaite Manor is said to be a large woodland named Old Harry Fen where you will commonly locate panthers in RDR 2.
- Lemoyne – East of Lagras in the wooded wetlands is another place you can run into panthers.
Finding Panthers in RDR 2 is very difficult as they blend in well with the surrounding environments. There are also deadly hunters making it easier to get ambushed by them while out hunting. It is to be noted that do not forget to mask your scent with scent lotion before heading out into these regions.
In order to get a perfect Panther belt, you are required to find a 3-star animal and use either a rifle with High Velocity or Express ammo or a bow with an Improved Arrow. Whichever you pick, make sure you aim for Panther’s weak points on its head or heart to kill it in a single shot.
If you managed to find and hunt a panther in RDR 2, you will be rewarded with a Perfect Panther Pelt and some valuable Big Game Meat. If you are able to snag yourself a Perfect Deer Pelt and Perfect Elk Pelt as well then you can use all three to craft the Kit Satchel Camp Upgrade.
That’s all you need to know to get Panthers in RDR 2.
