Attain over 9,001 points in a single Free Roam session
This can be obtained by simply going to twin rocks in a private multiplayer free roam and clearing the hideout as quickly as possible. Simply choose to replay until you get over 9,001 points. You can check how many points you have by holding down on the D-Pad. Here is a video that shows the most efficient way to clear Twin Rocks,

Attain over 50,000 posse points in a single Free Roam session
The way I obtained this achievement was I formed a posse of 3 in a private free roam, one person went to twin rocks and my friend and I went to pike's basin. We just kept clearing the hideouts over and over until we got it. This took about an hour and a half to obtain.
nfntjy says this way is quicker, I've yet to confirm,
Get the largest possible posse (8), and do a hideout with a high base score (pike's basin). I believe at a minimum each posse member will get 600-800 pts.

This means you will only have to do Pikes a maximum of 10 times. if you split up the ammo crates, you can do it in less than 3 minutes.

This is best to be boosted with 5 other people, you can get the other achievements with this same group of 5 people. Simply start a private free roam with no one in a posse and have the host choose "Stronghold". Once the match starts just let the time run out and you'll get this achievement and "Avatar of Death".

Then tell the truth about the final dice you have and have them press :xbut: to call your bluff. This will make them lose a dice and now they can place a high bet and you can call their bluff until they are out of dice.

In a full Multiplayer Liar's Dice game, win without losing a single die
Credit goes to Moe Marston and iiM SO S1N1STER for this quicker method.
Set Up:

For this achievement you will need a total of 6 players.
What you will be doing is having the person winning to call spot ons for the whole game.

The most important thing I can tell you is to make sure that everyone has a working microphone and can speak loud enough for everyone to hear. This solution WILL NOT work if someone does not have a mic.

First off, pick someone who will be the "caller". This person will ask each person, in order of where they sit on the table, (you won't have to change order because the game will seat you where you were before if you stay in the game)how many dice they have of a specific die face. (It can be any one that you choose. Stuck with the 1 die so that way the person betting only had to change the amount value).

Next, whoever is to the RIGHT of the person winning the game will be the "better". This person will make the bets spot-on after the caller tells him how many of the specific dice are on the table.

To move around the table without messing up the method, so you can have a new person win, just keep betting 1 of whatever die face value until it gets to that round's better.

Example: Say the "better" is the 4th person. The 1st person will bet 1 of the 1 die face, the 2nd person will then bet 1 of the 2 die face, and etc etc until it gets to the "better".

And then, whoevers turn it is to win will always call a spot-on.

If for some reason you screw up by putting too many of the die face, or you auto-bid. Then just use the above method to move around the table to the "better".

If you can do this with no screw ups, then one game will only take you 6 to 8 minutes. Bringing the full time for a full table to under 40 minutes.

In a Multiplayer Poker game, win a hand by forcing someone with a better hand to fold
This can be done with two people. Tell each other what cards you have, whoever has the better hand will fold and the other will get the achievement. Repeat so the other person can get it.

In a Multiplayer Poker game, win a hand on the last card when you were losing prior
I got this achievement while going for "Pa-Pa-Pa Poker Ace" but it can be done with two people. Simply have your boosting partner go all in and you fold and then on the next hand keep calling or checking until the 5th card is on the table. You'll have to have the better hand so this achievement is slightly luck based which is why I said I got it while going for the other poker achievement.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/xe/Z5/1YCLiGJhbC9CDxoEGlxTWTJCL2FjaC8wLzU2AAAAAOfn5-pW5tk=.jpgPa-Pa-Pa-Poker Ace - 10:gsicon:
In a full Multiplayer Poker game, beat the table when blinds are at maximum
You'll need a full game of 6 people total. Make sure that you and the other 5 people in your game have 3 hours time to get this as that is how long it will take for all 6 players to get the achievement.

It is best to have someone in your boosting party that is knowledgeable about poker so that they can tell the person going for the achievement when they have the best hand so they can bust everyone out and win.The best place to get this achievement is to go to MacFarlane's Ranch since the max blind is only 64.



Starting with whoever goes first, have that person go all in. Then have everyone else fold.



Repeat this process as it goes around the table until the blinds are at max.



If you were unable to get someone that is knowledgeable about poker then once the blinds are max at 64 you can have everyone go all in and see who wins, this is what I did.



After two or more people have gotten the achievement it is best to have them bust out at the beginning so you don't run into the chance of them winning again. To do this simply have them go all in and whoever has the best hand will bust the other people out. The remaining person who already has the achievement should place a bet of about 60, have the next person call it and then have the 3rd person check it. When it gets back to the person who already has the achievement have them fold as well as one other person so that the only one person still has his cards so he gets the money. Repeat this process when it gets to the person who already has the achievement until he bust out as well.

Another method is after the match starts have everyone aside from the host and one other person return to free roam and have them fold back and forth until blinds are max. I was told this way is quicker but have yet to confirm.

Complete the Explosive Rifle Single Player Challenge
All of the challenges are pretty straight foward aside from the 3rd and 4th challenges.

For the 3rd challenge you need to get a triple kill, to do this go to twin rocks and kill everyone beside for 3 people. Lasso them and then hogtie them. After you have hog tied all 3 people, pick them up and place them all next to each other. Pull out your explosive rifle and fire.

For the 4th challenge you need to kill two wild animals with one shot. To do this, place some bait out, this can be found at most general stores, and wait for a group of animals to cluster up and fire your explosive rifle.

For more information on this single player challenge, refer to Zanmoto88's singe player challenge guide,

I wanted to suggest: for 3rd Explosive Rifle challenge getting a triple kill. I found a faster way. Got to the armadillo Saloon, and push 3 Walton Gang Members & run out the front door when they run out they'll be bunched together trying fist fight you, pull out the explosive rifle & fire.

Great Legend Shemp Howard here coming at you live from Armadillo!!! McDurbin man I love the guide, and I will be using it for those crazy Poker achievements.

Also people I was the guy at Twin Rocks with Durbin while he and his buddy where in Pike's Basin. With one person at Twin Rocks you will get 600 XP per minute if you get the 21-22 kill chain combo and clear the hideout in under a minute. So in about 42 minutes I had 25,000 of our team's xp. They got the other 25,000 about 3 minutes later, and we were all done.

So this achievement takes less than an hour to get with a good team. Just make sure you have a Great Legend on your team working the TWIN ROCKS! TWIN ROCKS PEOPLE! COMING AT YOU LIVE FROM TWIN ROCKS!

Anyways again you aren't going to find a better guide than this anywhere. McDurbin knows this game like he knows Vasoline.

Also if you are on the fence about getting this DLC don't be. It is an easy 100 gamerscore. Just check out the following video for a really good video review of the DLC and wether you ought to buy it or not.

YouTube - My Thoughts: Liars & Cheats

Clearly if you watched the video and read McDurbin's guide you will now want to buy Liars and Cheats! I will see you in Armadillo!

Be cautious, If you accidently kill a gang team member while blowing up the 3 enemy players with dynamite then the achievement will not unlock !

You have to be on the attacking team to receive the achievement.

This is my first guide on x360a so I wasn't sure who to suggest this to be stickied to. So I sent a pm to an administrator named "Krazie". If thats not the right person and someone know's who to send it to then go ahead and do so.

If everyone has a microphone, our group found it much easier to get Compulsive Liar by making spot on calls.


We would go around the table, with everyone stating the amount of Ones they had, and then the person bidding would bid the exact amount. The next person calls spot on and everyone loses a die. (Rinse and Repeat) At most, our games would take 7-8 minutes.

So I guess after the person successfully called a spot on bid it went back to the person that placed the bid at first?

We tried doing that, but with just naming off the number of dice we had the most of and we often ran out of time and it did an auto bid.

for 50,000 points, get then largest possible posse (8), and do a hideout with a high base score (pike's basin). I believe at a minimum each posse member will get 600-800 pts.

This means you will only have to do Pikes a maximum of 10 times. if you split up the ammo crates, you can do it in less than 3 minutes.

Sorry, I don't recall. I played through the races with my brother in one sitting last week. We stopped after the third because we realized they were starting to repeat. There's even a challenge for completing all three Grand Prix.

We started off with a 4-race circuit, then got the 5, and ended on the 3. Each Grand Prix has a different name, so if you know the name you can just skip ahead to the one you want.

Could you revise the achievement guide since the bolded statement above is not accurate? It does not matter where you play, as it takes the same number of increases to get to where the blinds are maxed out, and takes the same amount of time.

Can I suggest you delete the incorrect sentence bolded above and add the following information, credited to jt89 in this post:

The following is the maximum blind for each table:

Macfarlanes Ranch - $10 buy in - blinds max out at 64.
Armadillo -$25 buy in - blinds max out at 192
Theives Landing -$25 buy in - blinds max out at 192
Casa Madrugada -$50 buy in - blinds max out at 384
Beechers Hope - $100 buy in - blinds max out at 640

Good looking out Shannon, I agree, you should consider using that in the guide and maybe even credit jt89 (up to you both). A lot of people only look at the guide and most will not see the info he posted. Also is the game really a 6? I normally don't like to judge time consumption as part of the difficulty since you already notify people it will take 7 hours. The real question is, in that 7 hours is there really anything that's specifically difficult? You might want to adjust it a little lower, maybe even down to a 3 or 4...I haven't played the DLC so maybe some other members could pitch in what they think would be a fair number.

I think the difficulty depends if you attempt the achievements legit or boost them, if you boost them the only hard part is getting 6 people, but doing them legit can be quite tricky I have been at maximum blinds three times two of which I was chip leader, one I made a rookie mistake the other times I just didn't get the fall of the cards so I got beaten, and doing the liars dice achievement legit is quite difficult. I would give it a 7 if you do them legit and probably a 3 if you boost them.

I also would include jt89 information it helped knowing when I was at max blinds, but I would keep in your suggestion about Macfarlanes as it is cheapest buy in allowing you to play more hands a day. Although it takes the same amount of hands to get to max blind on all tables.

Good point. I forget about the daily allowance and how it can affect how many games people play since it hasn't really affected me. Definitely good to note that one can play more full games total if playing at the tables with lower buy-ins.

Only thing I find is that people are a lot more reckless in the lowest buy in table this can work for you or against you, I tend to stick to 25 buy in just because it seems like you get people take risks but don't just go all in except a few players on the first hand, where as my experience of buying in at 10 people seem to go all in a lot more! I say it can work in your advantage because if you start with a good hand and go all in and win you get a big chip advantage and you can bully the other players into folding :)

This might just be me, but playing cautiously and not raising and going all in on a pair/high card seems to have given me some success at 25 buy in :)

For the single player explosive rifles challenges, I suggest using the Walton Gang characters at the Armadillo Saloon.

Could you revise the achievement guide since the bolded statement above is not accurate? It does not matter where you play, as it takes the same number of increases to get to where the blinds are maxed out, and takes the same amount of time. Getting to 64 in MacFarlane's is the same as getting to 640 in Beecher's Hope. Can I suggest you delete the incorrect sentence bolded above and add the following information, credited to jt89 in this post:

I think it would be helpful to more people if it were included in your stickied guide.
Well then my statement is not incorrect. Its just an area I suggested. If all poker tables take the same amount of time to reach max blinds then it doesn't really matter then, right? So just take it for what it is, a good and simple dlc achievement guide. I updated my guide for compulsive liar and the poker ace achievement.

Dude, I appreciate your efforts, but you may want to take some suggestions that have been made to you. You sound a bit like you're offended at the suggestion that your guide isn't perfect. It could be better, so why not make it so? That statement is [still] inaccurate because the max blind being 64 is not the reason MacFarlane's is the best suggestion, it is because more hands can be played. There is a difference.

The reason I made this suggestion was that your guide isn't completely accurate and can be confusing. Meanwhile, I've repeatedly referred to the post I quoted while playing for myself or to help others get the achievement. I therefore thought it would be beneficial and make your guide better, if you included the different blinds in the event people weren't playing at the table you suggested. You might even just change the wording to say "It takes the same number of hands to reach max blinds, but since you can play more hands at the lower buy-in tables, MacFarlane's ranch the suggested location. Here's a list of the locations, their buy-ins and the maximum blinds:"

Just trying to help the community. Your guide is a great start, but a small change can make this particular part helpful to more people and reduce confusion.

Allright, here's how I did it (takes about half an hour or so):

Get a party of 4 in a private game and go into a public poker game (after becoming a posse). Skip until you get MacFarlane's Ranch, and start when 6 people are in the game (4 of which are your friends in your posse). Start and kick the other 2 players, after that leave the posse and kick the 2 players who wont get the achievement this time.

Now start the game, one person will get the achievement one won't. Keep folding until the blinds are 32/64. When this happens tell eachother your hands and keep checking until the 5th card is out, fold if the winning player has weaker cards, or go all in if the winning player has the best cards.

Having problems with this achievement unlocking, i had six kills with one stick of dynamite and still did not unlock, any pointers. Still looking for folks to boost Compulsive Liar, Legion of Boom, and Triple Crown.

>Make sure you are on the attacking team

>use the cannon on the Ft. Mercer map (you need to capture the first 3 flags before they become available to use)

>if you use dynamite, make sure you throw it at the ground. if the actual stick hits someone, it can kill them/cause the game to count weird.

In case you care at all still about improving your guide, you may want to add to the Compulsive Liar that the six players not only are required, but have to stay at the table for the achievement. People frequently seem to be confused about this, and adding that they all have to stay would help clear this up.

Got a quick question: for the Pa-Pa-Pa-Poker Ace achievement, does everyone need to stay at the table till the end?

In the guide it says it might be possible for 4 people to quit as soon as the game has started, but it hasn't been confirmed yet.

To answer my own question:

We tried it yesterday and IT WORKS. 4 people can quit as soon as the game starts and the other two obviously keep folding till the blinds are max. Here's some more tips and things we noticed:




You can get the pa-pa-pa-poker ace achievement in a private free roam lobby, so there's no need to worry about people not having enough gambling money to join 6 games.
The reason you'll want 4 people to quit out asap is so that this achievement is a lot more bearable. It takes almost 30 minutes per person to get the achievement, so whilst the 2 people playing poker are raising the blinds the other 4 can go play something else for 25-30 minutes.
In response to a theory on the original post: It takes just as long as when everyone stays at the table (with 4 players busting out right at the beginning). But like I said, its a lot more bearable when the inactive players can quit and go do something else.
Always try to have 2 people without the achievement staying in the game. That way if someone screws up at the end of the poker game, the achievement goes to the other person (instead of it going to someone who already has it and completely wasting half an hour). Try to have it so that everyone does at most 2 'shifts' of half an hour (fair split), but focus on having two players without the achievement going against each other.
Whilst raising the blinds for 25-30 minutes, all you have to do is fold every time its your turn to make a move (press X). Its your turn almost exactly every 30 seconds, assuming both of you are actively pressing X or at least watching the screen and paying attention.
The host of the private lobby must be 1 of the two people staying till the end of the poker game.
Don't mess around with raising bids, looking at your cards or showing the cards after you've won a hand. Just slows things down.
When 5 of the 6 people have the achievement, you'll have 1 person with the achievement already at the table. During this last game what we did was have them 2 fold at the beginning, the rest go all in. Then transfer the money to the 2 guys that will be playing for half an hour and have the 4 inactive players quit. This way you have a bit more breathing space in case things get messy at the end (people often got nervous, didn't know what to do and the other person got the achievement - thats why its important to try to use 2 people without the achievement when possible). When the blinds are at their maximum, just have the 'loser' keep folding and reducing his money until he has to go all in for a small/big blind, then just keep repeating until the loser busts out.
