What is Prairie Poppy?

As you might know, there are several tools that you can make use of in the Red Dead Redemption 2 game to make anything useful, from weapons to any other tool. Prarie Poppy is one such item that you can make use to create snake oil. And what does this snake oil do? It basically refills your dead eye meter to full. In the initial stages of the game, your dead eye will be fairly weak and drain out very quickly.

As Red Dead Wiki explains, “Prairie Poppies are little yellow flowers on top of tiny green bushes.” You have better chances of spotting them in bright daylights when the sun is up. You can combine Prairie Poppy with Wild Feverfew to make undead bait which can help you complete the Survivor mission “Biographies and Lies”. If you are playing the survivalist challenge then, 12 Prairie Poppy are required to get Survival Challenge Rank 8, and 2 additional Poppy are required to get Rank 10.

The native location of Prairie Poppy in the Red Dead Redemption game is in the Great Plains and West Elizabeth. Predominantly, they are found near the locations of the Blackwater. They are pretty easier to detect as they are yellow in color and you can easily spot them. Try to check the areas around the train track as they are scattered all over the place.

However, note that during the early hours of your gameplay, you will have a high bounty on your head near the areas of the Blackwater, making it pretty hard for you to head searching for the prairie poppy. So, it is advised that you take your horse for a speedy runaway if in a situation demanding escape. The Great Plains also do not unlock and are available only after a considerable part of the game is completed. So, you have to look for the poppies near the Blackwater better. Note that in Red Dead Online, you can freely explore the Blackwater and gather all the Prairie poppies.

So, there you have it from my side in this post. I hope you guys liked this post and were able to look out and gather the prairie poppy that is pretty essential for snake oil preparation.
