Red Dead Online Event - Naturalists' Month - Bonuses on Sample Sales, Legendary Animal Sighting Missions and more (July 2023)


Recommended Posts


This month, it's time for Naturalists to shine! Visit Harriet to deliver some samples for a bonus (and perhaps get a bit of spray on your threads), or Gus for rewards, find bonuses on Legendary Animal Sighting Missions, Free Roam Events, Featured Series bonuses, Blood Money Opportunities and more!


Much like the GTA Online posts, it is a preview so information may be subject to changes or corrections.


We understand that not every Event will be to everyone's liking, some will certainly be more exciting than others, but anyway...

Let's get started!


Naturalist Bonuses - Please Think of the Animals?

This month, and until the 31st July, Naturalists all across the five states can enjoy bonuses on what they do best... depending on their inclination, that is. If you're a Naturalist who cares about your local animals' wellbeing (yes, including that grizzly that nearly killed you), you can meet Harriet at her mobile tent and sell some samples this week for multiple bonuses - keep it respectful and she won't get the mythical spray out!

If you're otherwise a natural hunter and just roam the forests and plains for a kill or a high quality pelt, then Gus will have something for you as well, although Harriet seems more inclined to give you some attention this week as long as you aren't too naughty!


  • 2x RDO$ and XP on Naturalist Sample Sales
  • Craft a coat or trinket at Gus' stand to receive 42 rounds of Buckshot Incendiary Shotgun Ammo
  • Log-in any time this month to receive 2 Potent Predator Baits and 2 Potent Herbivore Baits
  • Sample a Legendary Animal to receive the Tan and Black Furred Gloves
  • Sell samples to Harriet each week, and you can get:
    • 11th - 17th July: Offer for 40% off a Novice or Promising Naturalist role item
    • 18th - 24th July: Offer for 40% off an Established or Distinguished Naturalist role item
    • 25th - 31st July: Reward for the Lake Isabella Treasure Map

Miscellaneous Bonuses - Featured Series, Legendary Animal Sightings, Free Roam Events and More

This month, the Featured Series calendar comes back with an assortment of weekly modes to enjoy, from regular series to Hardcore series. Legendary Animal sightings will also be in vogue this month for any kind of Naturalist. If you like channelling your inner Albert Mason, and your thing is photography and studying animals, there's something for you as well, with bonuses on Wild Animal Tagging and Wildlife Photography.

Miss the word "capitale"? I'm sure you do - clothing rewards this month await for those who complete a Blood Money Opportunity.


  • 2x Role XP and regular XP on Legendary Animal Sighting Missions
  • 2x RDO$ and XP on Wild Animal Tagging and Wildlife Photography Free Roam Events
  • Complete a Blood Money Opportunity to receive the brown Morales Vest
  • Complete a round of the Wildlife Photography Free Roam Event to receive a Tan Raccoon Hat

    • 18th - 24th July: Hardcore "Plunder" and "Spoils of War" Series
    • 25th - 31st July: Lemoyne Series

Community Outfit by /u/RanaAzul on /r/RedDeadFashion (may not be fully representative of Rockstar's choice)


This Month's Community-Inspired Outfit

Weather in most of the states is usually fair, whether it's Summer, Winter, Autumn or Spring, so a mid-season outfit like this one created by /u/RanaAzul on Reddit fits just fine for most situations. That is, unless you intend on visiting Ambarino - buuut it may be appropriate for the desert heat of New Austin. Until the 31st July, find freebies inspired by the linked Reddit community outfit:

  • Puff Tie
  • Cuffed Down Pants
  • Traditional Vest
  • Frill Shirtwaist (F) | Collar Overshirt (M)
  • Riding Habit Jacket (F) | Worsted Coat (M)
  • Homestead Boots (F) | Cobbled Boots (M)
  • Sagemoor Hat (you can claim the Sagemoor Outfit for free this month if you're a Naturalist Rank 5 or above)


A specialised image of this month's Community Inspired Outfit will be available from R* themselves.
