Red Dead Online: Carmela Montez Legendary Bounty
The second Prestigious Legendary Bounty Rockstar added during the Red Dead Online December 8th weekly update was for a woman named Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez. This woman, along with her posse, are said to be responsible for a number of bloody highway robberies that have caused the local law enforcement to leave her alone. This is where we come in. To bring Carmela Montez to justice we need to find and either capture or kill her. To help you on your bounty hunt we’ve created a Carmela Montez Legendary Bounty guide you can find below.
How to Start the Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez Bounty
Poster Description: “Blood relative of notorious DEL LOBO GANG members. Believed to be current GANG BOSS, responsible for a SPATE of BLOODY HIGHWAY ROBBERIES. Described as smooth-skinned and comely. Considered EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. D.L. GANG last seen heading EAST FROM N.A. in an ARMORED WAR WAGON.”
Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez is the second of a number of Prestigious Legendary Bounties. These bounties become accessible to Bounty Hunters once they’ve purchased the additional Prestigious Bounty Hunter License from any Bounty Board for 15 Gold. Once you have this license you will be able to take on bounties to hunt for enemies like Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez.
To start the hunt for the Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez you need to make your way to any Bounty Board when you have Legendary Bounties active in your game. Once you are at the board interact with it to view the currently available bounties. On the far right of the board you should see a bounty for Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez. Choose the bounty poster to trigger the cutscene that starts this bounty.
Search Hanging Dog Ranch for Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez
After the cutscene is over you will be placed at the start of the Bounty Hunt. This mission takes place along the Little Creek River. From the missions spawn follow the path heading northwest to reach the ranch.
When you approach the ranch you will notice a ton of guards around. These guards aren’t your only problem as you will need to worry about the War Wagon Carmela can jump inside when you reach the Hanging Dog Ranch. This armor plated wagon features a Gatling gun that Carmela will use to shoot at you if you pull aggro from the adds at the ranch.
Capturing and Claiming the Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez Bounty
Carmela spawns in at the house or barn on the far side of the ranch. If you attack the enemies right away and give her time she will jump into the War Wagon. This makes catching her slightly difficult as you essentially need to avoid being gunned down by her machine gun. With that said I’ve found the stealth approach to be your best option here.
If you can stealth your way to the house/barn you can typically reach Carmela without her getting inside of the War Wagon. This approach makes it easy hogtie her then deal with the enemies around the compound. You can also opt to get into the War Wagon yourself and use it to clear the area. This causes Carmela to run away. If Carmela does get into the War Wagon you can get her to exit it by shooting her legs through the side holes or by getting into the War Wagon driver’s seat.
Once you have Carmela secured on your horse you need to take her to the closest jail. This jail happens to be Strawberry. The ride to this jail is medium length, so really push your horse to make it quick. As you are riding some of Carmela’s goons will ride after you. You can kill or ignore them depending on your horses speed. At the jail ride into the yellow marked location to finish this bounty and claim your reward. You will get both Gold, RDO$, Bounty Hunter XP, and XP for your troubles.
