The Naturalist

The Naturalist Pursuit will have you choosing to help one of two characters.

Help Harriett Davenport retrieve specimens for her conservationist work. Track and sedate them to earn rewards. At odds with Harriet’s mission to understand and preserve wildlife is the retired big game hunter Gus Macmillan. He will pay you well for your hunting skills. So, if you’d prefer fine clothing, Gus offers a range of options. Be warned though, Harriet will take notice of your poaching activities if you try to play both sides of this quarrel.

You will obtain special rewards depending on who you choose to help.

Assisting Harriet Davenport in her Naturalist efforts will earn unique rewards while tracking these creatures. Use the new Sedative Varmint Cartridges with the Varmint Rifle to sedate and sample, and savvy Naturalists can use Animal Reviver to ensure vulnerable animals are not left prone and endangered.

Delivering animal parts, skins, and hides to Gus Macmillan will get you high quality clothes and other unique items with special benefits. Take advantage of his crafting and tailoring skills to obtain Legendary Animal Coats and other apparel, along with Animal Trinkets that give certain advantages.

Hi, I'm Hayden! I'm an editor for the site and also a member of the Generation Xbox Podcast! I'm a big fan of RPGs (tabletop and video games!), but I've also got a huge sweet spot for Survival games. Zombie Survival games are a big yes in my book. Oh, and if you still watch The Walking Dead, I'm your guy!
