U.S. Marshalls won't change me.

The U.S. Marshalls won't chase me. My bounty is about 5,000 and they still won't come after me. Is this achievement broken or is it just me? Tips and Tricks would be gladly appreciated.

It's not just you.

I got this while going for the "Friends in High Places" achievement. What happened was I took a break from my killing spree to save my game at my safehouse in Armadillo. Right after that, I received the popup notification that the US Marshalls had found me. Got on my horse, raced out of town, stayed out of sight from the Marshalls for long enough, and bleep-bloop.

Things I have read that seem to work: killing more lawmen, and save the game a number of times and eventually the Marshalls will find you.

Take a look at this link here:

I've mentioned this before, and some scoff, but others know what I'm talking about:

Red Dead Redemption can read your mind.

Somehow, it always seems to know what achievement/challenge you are attempting to get and it thwarts you. For instance, if you need to kill 5 rabbits for a challenge and set out just to do that, don't be surprised when you don't find any rabbits.

So the trick is to do something else entirely, in earnest, and you will trick the game into giving you what you want. So the example again, if you want to kill rabbits, go on a bounty hunt, and sure as shit rabbits'll be running all over the place.

Same thing here. I got this going for "Friends in High Places" and I wasn't having any luck in the first couple of spots I chose. It just took too long to get the bounty going or I'd kill every lawman and they'd stop showing up. And then I read online that the Doctor's Office in Armadillo is a great spot to hole up, so I rode over there.

Now I was planning to get "Heading South on a White Bronco" after getting "Friends" so I was already riding a Hungarian Half-Bred. As I approached Armadillo and because I still had a small bounty (it was like $1,200), the notice came up that the U.S. Marshals were after me, so I outran them and got the cheevo.

But at no time during this was my intent to get "Heading South", I was totally focused on getting "Friends"...

So, get yourself a stock bounty and change your horse to the Hungarian Half-Bred and go do something else (stay in New Austin, obviously), and when you least expect it, the Marshals will find you.

@Jack Frost:

The only thing I disagree with in your post is that the achievement for evading the US Marshals requires riding the Hungarian Half-Bred.

Okay, I don't believe that RDR can read your mind, either but I get your drift.

Y'know, I've been making that mistake forever? I've been the bureaucrat at the Red Dead Wiki for nearly 2 years and I'm still getting that wrong...

Well, I don't know any other words that explain it properly, but I'm glad you at least get the gist of what I'm on about there...

And thank you, as well, for visiting/using the site. I'm JackFrost23 over there, for reference...

And putting it together has been a pleasure. Granted, I didn't do it all myself, but I put a lot of work into that site.

If you are still having problems, I saw a great video from Trueachievements that showed going to Armadillo and killing all the cops in that town. After that ride out of town and set up a campfire. Place a waypoint east (and above the R on the map for MacFarlanes Ranch) and then waypoint there. Once you show up near MacFarlanes that message showed up for me that the US Marshalls are then after you. Just ride away....
