If you've been keeping up to date with the latest in Rockstar's wild west, then you'll be aware of the Red Dead Online Legendary Bounties you can now hunt down. These are part of an ongoing series that tells the stories of ten unique bounties, each of whom have their own cinematic introduction to explain their heinous crimes and give you a reason for going out there and bringing them to justice. Capture that Red Dead Online Legendary Bounty dead or alive, then deliver them to the local sheriff for a sizeable reward – but don't forget that these special targets can only be hunted by players following the Bounty Hunter path of the Red Dead Online roles.

The fifth Legendary Bounty to appear is Cecil C. Tucker, a cowardly arsonist who is wanted for killing women and children in their homes, so watch out for fires and bring your best combat skills in Red Dead Online as you track down this young criminal. We've successfully brought Cecil C. Tucker to justice, so read on for everything you need to know about how to complete the fifth of the Red Dead Online Legendary Bounties.

If you haven't already begun the Bounty Hunter path of the Frontier Pursuits yet, then get yourself over to the sheriff marker in Rhodes to meet the Legendary Bounty Hunter and purchase your Bounty Hunter License – if you've linked your Twitch Prime and Rockstar Games Social Club accounts previously then this should be free, otherwise you'll need to shell out 15 Red Dead Online Gold Bars.

Armed with your official license, check out any bounty board to reveal the Legendary Bounty for Cecil C. Tucker. Select the Legendary Bounty to trigger a cutscene, which then leads straight into the bounty hunt as a standalone mission. You only get two team lives, so use them wisely.

You'll be told that Cecil C. Tucker was last seen near Fort Brennand, which you'll find by the Kamassa River west of the Van Horn Trading Post. As with last week's Legendary Bounty, you won't have to search different areas in order to track down your target as Cecil C. Tucker's location of Fort Brennand is marked on the map straight away. As you start to get close to him, you'll see plenty of guards patrolling around the fort, and it's up to you if you'd prefer to take them out silently or go in all guns blazing.

In order to locate Cecil C. Tucker, you'll first have to take out the other enemies and search Fort Brennand. Be warned that once you get inside the ford and start looking around, you'll then be ambushed from all directions by the Lemoyne Raiders. Appropriately for an arsonist, there are lots of explosives stacked inside the fort so be careful where you take cover so you don't get blown away. 

As you start whittling down this second wave of enemies, Cecil C. Tucker should put in an appearance. For us he was among a group of Raiders to the east, so be careful with your targeting if you want to bring him in alive as it's easy to blast him by mistake or catch him in a crossfire. Once you've loaded him up on your horse and make good with your escape, you'll need to ride all the way up the east coast to Annesburg to drop off your bounty, so be prepared for plenty more enemies either lying in wait to ambush you or chasing up behind on horseback. Keep going until you reach the drop off, at which point a handsome reward is yours to collect – congratulations, you've successfully captured and brought in Cecil C. Tucker!
