Cave Hermit ?

I've been trying to figure out the cave hermit. If anyone has some tips it would be greatly appreciated. Supposedly reading online you can

Spoiler

 

get a different version of the shotgun, it's the same shotgun as the regular but with a different skin. Online it will say things like you have to visit him and eventually kill him. It says you can visit him up to 5 times. It also says after the 3rd time he will try and attack you and you can fight him off and he'll drop the shotgun. There isn't a lot of information on this, I've visited him 4 times, each time you have to wait a "game day" between visits. He doesn't attack me and talks to me a lot but ends up leaving.

How do you make him fight you and how do you get up to him to get the shotgun?

 

Thank you for any tips/suggestions. I've searched google and youtube and haven't fund much of anything on this one.

Spoilers - please use the block

I think the shotgun is a myth, not real.

You can visit 5 times - different dialogue, before he stops engaging with you.

There are many youtubes (hes called the cave devil or devil man) on how to get up to his place - but there's nothing there. - except the glowing pentagram thing, like Butchers creek.

It's wild how I've searched a lot online and no one really gives you any information on how or what to do. I've yet to see anyone post anything showing they have the gun, other than that one posts that shows the gun, but they don't show actually earning it, more like a screen shot of the weapon.

Location ?

From vgr.com

Spoiler

Rare Shotgun

Despite its name, there are actually multiple locations where you can find the Rare Shotgun. The first is Hanging Dog Ranch which is north of Wallace Station. Head a little ways west of the ranch and you’ll encounter a cave hermit wielding the shotgun. The second location is Manito Glade which is north of Annesburg. Again, you’ll have to take the shotgun by force, this time from a hostile recluse who calls the glade home. This is a good weapon to track down if you’re already a fan of the Pump-Action Shotgun.

read on another forum searching this just now that nobody has found a way yet to get the gun from the cave hermit.  Lassoing doesn't work.  Haven't seen much about the other hermit that supposedly has the shotgun also.  Something i get to check out tonight after work :)

And I felt so clever when I suggested it...

i thought the same thing - what a great idea!  i'll try that tonight.  then i googled and saw the post on gamefaq "I tried to lasso and it didn't work".  Ah well, i'll try it anyway, maybe that person is bad with his rope skills?

I like that last one:

"I tried dynamite and he just runs away too quickly for it to blow him off the ledge."

I haven't encountered this guy yet, so I can't even picture the angle or anything to begin trying to figure it out. Lasso and dynamite were my only ideas...

Maybe a dynamite arrow or some explosive rounds?

I need to find a screenshot of this guy...

Can you lasso him and pull him down?

Good idea, I went back and tried this, when I aim the lasso at him the red dot turns grey, so no it won't let me lasso him. Same thing when I aim a weapon at him, it turns from red to grey like I can't shoot him.


Very VERY strange.

I like @Truth's idea with the exploding arrow.  Gonna go try it after work, maybe shoot right behind/beside him and blow him off the ledge?  have to see what it looks like when i get there.

Well, I'm not sure on this cave hermit dude, I've gone back several times he never comes down and all the other visits I couldn't lasso or shoot him. When I would aim at him the red dot would turn grey.

 

This time I visited him again and he walked to the edge when I aimed at him it turned red so I shot him. He fell back/farther away. 

I guess I killed him, no shotgun.  Who knows?

The shotgun from that list that is at #22 comes from a hermit that comes out of his house and shoots at you, not the devil hermit. I got it the other day.
Upon further inspection of the article, number 22 and number 20 are talking about the same gun. 22 is a picture of the gun you get from the hermit shack, the name for #20 is the correct name and location but the picture is the default double barrel.
