Red Dead Redemption 2 Perks, Trinkets, and Talismans list: How to craft items to boost your stats

If you want to level up your Arthur Morgan, then having a Red Dead Redemption 2 Perks, Trinkets, and Talismans list will help you on your way. There isn't a traditional levelling system within Red Dead Redemption 2, so you won't earn experience points to upgrade your abilities or find a skill tree full of perks to unlock, but there are ways in which you can apply some handy bonuses and passive perks to give yourself a boost.

To get the Trinkets and Talismans required for this, you'll have to go to one of the Red Dead Redemption 2 Fence locations then provide the correct ingredients (and cash) for their production. Some of the components are difficult to find, but the effort will be worth it when the finished items provide benefits such as increases to stamina, Eagle Eye duration, weapon durability, and more. We've got a full Red Dead Redemption 2 Perks, Trinkets, and Talismans list for your reference right here, so you'll know the exact ingredients you need to find and how much producing each item will cost.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trinkets

Red Dead Redemption 2 Talismans

You’ll find that you need to work harder for Talismans. As with Trinkets, you’ll need to bring a Fence cash and a Legendary Animal part for each; but you’ll also need a rare piece of jewellery and a hard-to-find crafting material.

  • Alligator Tooth Talisman (Vintage Civil War Handcuffs, Gold Jointed Bracelet, Legendary Alligator Tooth, $40.00)
