The alligator can be a very scary creature to come across in rdr 2. To make it less of a threat, you should make sure you know everything about it before looking for it, or going where it could be. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the alligator, from where to find it to how to kill it.
Best Weapons to Kill an Alligator With
It is important to use the right type of weapon when attempting to kill an alligator for two reasons: so you can easily kill it, and so you can preserve it and get a perfect pelt from it. Because of this, you want to avoid using any type of explosive ammo, while still using a powerful gun. The best two guns would be the sniper or the rifle with the regular, split point, high velocity, or express ammo because of this. While other weapons like shotguns with slugs or bows with poison arrows can be used, we recommend using the rifles for the best results.
The alligators most readily spawn in LeMoyne along the Kamassa River. They mostly spawn downstream towards the South of the map. They often will also spawn near Lagras.
These are all the things that you can get from the alligator. Sometimes, what you get depends on the kill quality or whether or not the alligator was legendary.
