The newest Red Dead Redemption 2 update for its online component is finally here after the community had successfully protested by dressing up as clowns. With this new Red Dead Online update comes Outlaw Pass 3 with a bunch of rewards, and there’s also a new role dubbed the naturalist.

As embodied by everyone reacting to the newest significant patch with the same tired “it’s been 84 years” meme from Titanic, this July 28th update for Red Dead Online has been a long time coming. This is because the last significant patch came out back in December 2019 in the form of the Moonshiners release.

However, the July 28th update has now arrived and below you’ll discover rewards included in Outlaw Pass 3, as well as learn what the new naturalist role is.

What is the Naturalist Frontier Pursuit in Red Dead Online?

The Naturalist is a new Frontier Pursuit in Red Dead Online.

In Red Dead Online, there are two people you must choose between siding with as a Naturalist: conversationalist Harriet Davenport or Gus Macmillan.

If you choose to side with kind-hearted Harriet, you will be tasked with obtaining samples without killing any animals.

This will reward you with unique rewards, and you can use the new Sedative Varmint Cartridges with the Varmint Rifle to sedate and sample creatures.

Meanwhile, Gus Macmillan simply wants animal parts, skins, and hides, and he’ll give you high quality garments and other unique items with special benefits as a reward.

These rewards include Legendary Animal Coats as well as Animal Trinkets.

You can meet up with both Harriet and Gus in the town of Strawberry, and you’ll also be able to document your findings with a Field Guide as you encounter new Legendary Animals.
