The Badger is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Description

Badgers are moderately sized mammals. They are aggressive omnivores that prey on smaller mammals, such as squirrels and moles, and their diet also consists of small insects, earthworms and grubs.

In appearance, they have wide, fat bodies with short legs, and an elongated head with small ears.

In colour, they have a grey body and their head has black stripes combined with white markings.

Location

Badgers are present in most parts of the map, they’re one of the most numerous animals in the game. The only places where you won’t find any are up in the north, guess the cold doesn’t agree with them. Thanks to their size, they can be kind of tough to spot, so you’ll have to strain your eyes a bit.


The best place to find them would be southwest Lemoyne, around the town of Rhodes. If that’s too far for you, there’s also a good hotspot in the Tall Trees area, west of Blackwater.

Challenges

Tips

  • The badgers’ pelts and claws don’t go for much in the market, but you can use them to craft all kinds of stuff.
  • The carcasses can be sold for $3 is they’re in good condition, so you even stand to make some money if it’s pelts and claws you’re after.
  • The Varmint Rifle will kill them but won’t damage the remains, which makes it the perfect weapon for clean kills.
