Bison: The Complete Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

RDR 2 is filled with many of the charismatic animals of North America, so naturally, the bison, which is also called the American Buffalo, can be found roaming in the game’s wilderness. Just like the moose, they are large herbivores who despite not actively looking to hurt the player or other animals, can still be dangerous if you are not careful. This article will explain everything about them, from where to find them, how to kill them, and what to do with them once you successfully hunt them.

Best Weapon to Kill the Bison With

Bison are large, strong animals. Because of this, using a strong weapon is important when trying to hunt them, as they can be hard to kill. It is best to use either a rifle or sniper rifle, since they are both incredibly powerful. However, it is important that you use the correct ammo. Any ammo can be used, as long as it isn’t explosive ammo, as that will ruin the kill. The only other option that is recommended is using a bow, especially if it is with improved arrows. Using herbivore bait can also be beneficial for killing bison.

Bison Locations

Bison are most commonly found in herds in the Great Plains, where the land is wide open. To the South West of Blackwater is one of the most reliable places to find them. Buffalo do not respawn, so once you kill all of them, you will receive an achievement, and will no longer be able to locate them anywhere.
