Carapace of an armadillo, of medium value.

In-game description

Armadillo Carapace is an animal item found in Red Dead Redemption.


The Armadillo Carapace can be obtained by killing and skinning an Armadillo. Their meat and carapaces are worth more in the Tall Trees or Blackwater area due to the fact that Armadillos are not usually seen there.

Note: prices listed on this page are based upon the player having neutral honor and playing the game on Normal difficulty. If the player has high honor, the selling price will be Increased by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing. Low Honor decreases selling price by 50% everywhere except Thieves' Landing. While playing the game on Hardcore difficulty, money is more scarce and the base, neutral honor price of each item will be slightly lower.

Mission Appearances

Marston needs to obtain three Armadillo Carapaces in order to unlock the fourth Master Hunter rank, along with five Boar Tusks. Though they can easily be killed by one shot from any gun, use only the pistol or low powered weaponry to shoot it, as using any other gun (Buffalo Rifle/Shotguns) will make the Armadillo explode. The hard part of this challenge is to spot them, as they are very small.
