Red Dead Redemption 2 Trapper Locations: Where to find the trapper

If you're hoping to sell your pelts and acquire some unique gear, here's where you can find the trapper in RDR2.

Trappers are special animal merchants in Red Dead Redemption 2, that deal in crafting unique outfits for Arthur Morgan. In our Red Dead Redemption 2 Trappers guide, we'll be walking you through everything there is to know about Trappersand the facilities that they can offer.

To get the unique hunting outfits in Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as the very best gear around, you need to sell your skins to the trapper. But first, you'll need to find him. So here's where to find the trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Red Dead Redemption 2 Trapper Locations

You're going to want to head to a Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 quite a lot, so it's handy to know where you can find one. First things first, Trapper locations can be identified on your map with a 'paw print' icon. You'll want to make your way there, sell your pelts to him, and it should unlock some of his wares, assuming you have the required components to purchase them.

It goes without saying, but you really don't want to sell these pelts elsewhere if you want to unlock the outfits. It's a bit of a waste if you do. If you happen to drop the pelts in the wild, they will be available to buy back at the Trapper, which is nice.

If you're early in the story, I'd personally hold off tracking down the pelts and travelling to Saint Denis too soon - it's a really special experience to ride into that place for the first time, and you don't want to be too familiar with Saint Denis when the story eventually takes you there. Luckily, there are a couple of other trappers.

In this Trapper locations guide we've got the details on the five locations you can find a trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2. Consult the list below for all your Trapper needs.

RDR2 Trapper Location 1

The main Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 can be found on the map point just below, in Saint Denis. As we mentioned previously, the Trapper is an animal specialist, and you can bring him your animal pelts and other items, which he can then use to craft you brand new gear.

But there's not just one Trapper found in Red Dead Redemption 2. He operates a total of five stores, and while you can find the home base in Saint Denis, there's another Trapper at the location just below.

RDR2 Trapper Location 3

As for the third location of the Trapper, there's a small store located just west of Rigg's Station, on the map point marked just below. We should mention that all five Trappers sell exactly the same gear, so there's no benefit in going to one over the other.

Fourth, you can find another Trapper operating in the western reaches of West Elizabeth. This Trapper can be located northwest from Strawberry, or southwest from Pronghorn Ranch.

Trapper Location 5

Finally, we've tracked down another Trapper that operates southwest from Blackwater. Keep in mind that you'll be wanted, dead or alive in this region for quite a while at the start of the game due to the failed Blackwater bank robbery, so best leave this one till later.

In the list below are all the unique outfits that the Trapper located in Saint Denis offers. There’s four gear pieces per outfit, and you’re going to have to collect a fair amount of animal materials in order to craft each outfit.

  • Bear Hunter outfit.
  • Trophy Buck outfit.
  • Dreamcatcher outfit.
  • Beast of Prey outfit.
  • Huntsman outfit.
  • Death Roll outfit.
  • Stalker outfit.
  • Ghost Bison outfit.
  • Rattler outfit.
  • Wrangler outfit.
  • Bronco Buster outfit.
  • Marauder outfit.
  • Bounty Hunter outfit.
  • Desperado outfit.
  • Night Wrangler outfit.
  • Mountain Man outfit.

The Trapper also sells a total of 26 hats, 7 saddles for your horse, and many more items. They’re not hard to find, but you’re definitely going to want to keep your animal pelts on you and avoid donating them to the camp, if you want to unlock all this Trapper has to offer.

Who is the Trapper?

Basically speaking, the Trapper is a merchant in Red Dead Redemption 2 that deals exclusively in animal equipment. As you can probably tell from the guide above, this means equipment made out of animal items, like hides and pelts, as well as equipment for your horse. If you're ever in need of some items with which to track down animals, head to the Trapper, rather than Pearson back at camp.
