Recommended Posts

Red Dead Redemption features a colorful cast of characters who aren't just there to progress the story, but also to help Arthur in his quest to aid the gang that has become his true family over the years. Among the members of the gang that will provide help to the outlaw is the cook Simon Pearson, who not only provides food for the whole gang but also a crafting service which allows players to obtain a variety of items in exchange for animal parts.

In order for Pearson to be able to craft all of the possible items, you need to purchase a specific camp upgrade, the Leather Working Tools. This upgrade costs only $180, so we suggest you purchase as soon as possible since some of the items that the cook can craft for you are extremely useful.

In this guide, we will not only list all the items that Pearson can craft but also where to find all the required materials.

Satchel Upgrades

The most useful items that Pearson can craft are the satchel upgrades. These seven upgrades expand your inventory space for select item types, so getting them will allow you to carry more items which, in turn, can be sold for more money. Crafting these upgrades, however, is going to be difficult if you're not good at hunting since you need perfect pelts, hides, and skins to do so. Once you have one in your possession, donate it to Pearson by selecting the appropriate option when interacting with his wagon.

Where To Find All Needed Materials

Finding all the materials needed to craft all of these upgrades is a daunting task, as you need to be doing a lot of hunting, and you need to be good at it as well since you need perfect pelts, hides, skins, and carcasses.

In order to get a perfect hide, pelt, skin, and carcass, you need to perform a perfect kill on animals that have a three-star rating, as they are the only ones that can drop perfect materials. To perform a special kill, you must kill the animal with the correct weapon and without damaging its body too much. As a general rule, small animals require the Varmint Rifle for perfect kills, medium-sized animals like deer the bow and arrow, and big animals rifles. You can check out our guide here for more information.

I really loved working my way through the hunting quests to get the Legend of the East satchel in which you can store sh*t loads of stuff. On my second playthrough I made it a priority and have it already.

I did the same. The first run through, I really couldn't hold much which made hunting and gathering a bit too tedious for me. I kept saying f it halfway through and just settled for something else I could craft with what I had.
