Find and break a unicorn.   

The Unicorn can be found north of Diez Coronas and west of Torquemada, if you look on the map there are 3 horses painted there. If it does not appear, fast travel to Cochinay and fast travel back to Torquemada so it will spawn. Some players have reported it to only appear after completing all challenges, though this is yet unconfirmed.

The Unicorn is a Hungarian Half-Bred with rainbows and butterflies, and obviously a horn on its forehead.

Unicorn is located in the East side of Mexico. This open field area is identified with three silhouette horse icons on the game map. It will randomly appear. So travel to this location and look for it, and if you don't find it just ride north across the train bridge turnaround and go straight back to the spot. You will know the Unicorn when you see it because of the rainbow vapor trail behind it.

Can it appear randomly or is there any pre-requisites?

I read that you need to have found the four horses of the appocalype and killed the chupacabra 1st?

Can I find it with out any of that?

I don't know, still working on it. But read on that you have to do Undead Hunter rank 4 first.

To find the unicorn you must first complete the Undead Hunter challenges, kill the Chupacabra (level 5 challenge), which can be found where there are the three horse silhouettes on the map, over in eastern Mexico by Torquemada, where the unicorn can also be found.

im having trouble finding the 4 horses, i have found 2 so far, war, and the one with almost infinite health, but i cant find the other ones, or them again, and idea what i should do to find the other 2? does it stop notifying you for the ones you have already found?

Fan Service: To find the Unicorn, you MUST have found and broken all Four Horses of the Apocalypse AND found a killed a Chupacabra. But you DON'T have to have done the whole game before finding it. It starts spawning right after you kill the Chupa. But it does NOT have the blue circle showing a mythical creature in the area.

After spending 4 hours searching for pestilence i found the unicorn in 4 minutes in mexico north of Diez Coronas where the map shows an image of 3 horses.

If you like me had problems finding any of the 4 apocalypse horses, i found this link VERY useful:

Awesome achievement and addition. Wish I could take my unicorn into normal RDR though :(

@#9 you said that you had to find the four horses and break them in in order to
find the unicorn? I know for a fact that I didn't find the last horse, death, and break him in. He was just given to me at the end of the game. So on my quest to find the last horse, I ran into the unicorn instead. He was located East Mexico with the 3 horse
symbol on the map.

@10 if you still needed/wanted to find pestilence, I found him in the first area you need to search for a sasquatch in "Birth of the Conservative Movement", i was riding around that area because I didn't realise the locations moved and it popped up that a mythical creature was roaming the area.

I don't know if it's random spawn points (since for some reason I've only just started the SP part of RDR:UN) but that was the first one I found :)

I was running around here and I came across Famine as well, so this place seems to be a hot spot for mythical creatures

Just as with finding any remaining Horses of the Apocalypse or the chupacabra, don't use Death as your mount. After searching for the unicorn for about 45 mins I decided to switch back to Pestilence and BAM, the unicorn appeard in less than a minute.

don't try to rope the unicorn while on a horse. get close enough on foot, rope it and break it. try to rope in while on a horse and it will just run away.

This achievement seems to be a little weird. I found the unicorn right where #2 suggested, it was the last thing I had to do after killing the chupacabra. Unlike #20 I had no problem using death, and it wasn't all that hard to saddle up alongside once I had it lassoed. Strangely, I didn't get a heads up that a mythical horse had appeared in my area and there was no red circle on the map like I got for the other horses. Still pretty noticeable in the open trailing rainbows. Fan service and zed's dead still popped, just be aware you might have to actually look for it, despite knowing where it will be.

if you wait until you have to kill the chupacabra they will pop up in the same spot

I was riding a unicorn around the place where the chupacabra is most commonly found (under the three horses) and I found another unicorn running around! Is that a bug?

Two horses are on the upper part of the map, other two are in Armidillo and somewhere in Mexico. Unicorn is in that giantass field near that secluded spot on the very bottom right. Supposedly it flies but didn't try it.
