"Rare"?

Recommended Posts

DirtCheap

So while debt collecting in Chapter 3, I did the mission with Holmes (the one where Arthur says his infamous ledger quote) where you have to hunt a "rare white cougar" and then sell it's pelt to repay his debt.

 

However, while the game claims that this is the only rare white mountain lion in the game, I keep seeing many white pumas around the map. This is odd as the game classifies them as regular cougars, despite having the exact same appearance as the white mountain lion we saw in the mission. 

 

Not only that, but since when are pumas white (the ones in the forests, not the "rare" one)? They have a more tawny coat.

Gonna need pics of those white cougars you're seeing round the map, I don't recall seeing any. The one you hunt for the mission is white and gives a white pelt but the others around the map are idk, beige (whatever colour cougars are lol) and give a beige coloured pelt

While I don't have any images ATM of them white cougars, I found some video on the RDR Reddit that has a similarly colored mountain lion.

The video is pretty funny too.

That's the normal looking cougar I believe. The white one is more albino, at least it gives a completely white pelt.

So looks there was a difference after all.

 

But while one question was answered, do you have an idea on why they're beige/grey? I thought a mountain lion had a more tawny coat.

Looking at real pics of them they seem spot on? Lighting may make then seem lighter or darker in certain situations I guess.

Excluding Red Dead, I've never seen a white cougar (cat)

This is the colour they are IRL and in Red Dead, excluding the white/legendary cougars which are unique.

I know what color they are, don't worry. I'm just kind of confused on why there's grey-white pumas in the game.

 

Also, while playing the game for a bit today, I saw that the ones in the desert have the tawny color while the ones north of Annesburg look grey.

 

By the way, this is the closest I could find to a grey mountain lion:

They are elder cougs with poor quality pelts, much like the elder bucks, and they are not as white as the special coug.

Not really.

I caught sight of one yesterday and it had 3 stars.

The one you hunt with Holmes is rare as it is the only white cougar in the game.

The mountain lion I keep referring to is grey

I found an image of this feline in a YouTube thumbnail
