Best Weapon to Kill the Armadillo With
Because the armadillo has a hard shell, it is important to use the right weapon make sure you get the kill. The best weapon to use is the Varmint Rifle. While the repeater shotgun also could work, the rifle is better due to it having a longer range. We recommend you use a scope to get a more accurate shot, and to always aim for the head. We recommend you use either predator or herbivore bait as well if you decide to specifically hunt it.
The Armadillo is located only in New Austin in the desert areas. The best place to find them is around the Town of Armadillo, especially to the North West.
