Hitch your horse once and it'll always come to you when you whistle. Just make sure not to hitch another horse during the game.

Still working on this one, it's not something I have worked out how to do without getting into a game with random people. If you end up in an empty free roam you could try and start a free for all session from there and you may get lucky and not have anyone else join, but that's rather rare.

You don't need to hitch your horse while playing through the game, but if you do use hitching it won't void the achievement. It's just easier to say don't as if you pick up another horse by mistake and hitch it you will swap your horse. It's just easier to call the your horse 90% of the time anyhow.

We got this done for a few people last night. Basically, you need to get a large posse together, and keep an eye on who is joining your game at all times. With a posse of 8 you will always have majority vote to kick anyone who joins your game. And yes, this can even be done in the middle of a match.

From there pretty much just grind out wins.

Excellent guide. I'll definitely use this when I pick up Red Dead Redemption soon.

Also, I wouldn't really worry about the game lasting over 100 hours for the full 1,000. If I were a betting man, I would say that within the next several weeks, a few creative players will discover a boosting method that will drastically decrease the amount of time required for the "How the West Was Won" achievement.

in your guide it says that the spurred to victory achievement is missable. Is this confirmed? or can you replay 20 missions to get it?

Has yet to be tested. I don't see why it wouldn't but I'd still consider it missable and try to get it during the main story playthrough just to be safe.

The Gunslinger - 5
Score a headshot on any enemy using Expert targeting mode.


Easy way to get this to do the 1st night patrol near Bonnie's.

All it involves is walking with the village dog, who eventually finds 2 men brawling, your supposed to just point your gun at them to clear the mission but instead just easily aim your head shot up and blam.

Once you've done that just reload your check point/save so you don't earn negative rep if your playing as a goody two shoes.

I got both the Go Team and the FFA achievement in the same playlist. I was playing casual matches and I don't remember the first game I played (it was a team game though) but I think I did pretty good. right after that I won two FFA grab bag matches in a row and the Quick and Dead achievement. right after THAT I won a gang shootout and got the Go Team achievement

so I think it counts if you're the best player on a game, team or not

I can't for the life of me get the stupid horseshoe chiev. I've had numerous "perfect" throws and everywhere in between and nothing. I'm starting to think it has nothing to do with the throw, just luck.

For High Roller, if you are using the Lucky For Love trick another player at the table has to also bet. Every person I've talked to had "The Stranger" go all in after you. It doesn't matter what cards you have, you'll still win. I had pair of twos and he had aces high, so obviously cards don't matter.

He won't go all in for me. I can't get this achievement with this method.

For On the Trail of de Vaca you DO NOT have to explore anything. All you have to do is to buy the maps from different general stores and use them from your inventory and this achievement will unlock. I say this so people won't spend ALOT of extra time running around the map by looking at some online locator.

I cannot remember all the locations at the moment but I think almost every General store has atleast one if you havent unlocked whole area.

These are 100% sure locations that sell map parts:
New Austin:
Armadillo

Nuevo Paraiso:
Chuparosa

West Elizabeth:
Manzanita Post

Please add some if you remember.

Excellent guide so far, can't wait to see the final outcome. I know that one of the horses you need for the achievement is an automatic, you get it during one of Bonnie's missions. I'll look through the Brady guide to see where the other 2 are located.

- Getting a headshot on expert mode can be done in Dead Eye too, making it considerably easier.

Not confirmed yet: Uncovering all locations can simply be done by buying the maps in general stores. I have one more map to buy, so if the cheevo pops then, I'll update it as confirmed.
I can confirm all three of these things.
I had 2700 on me and I got fistfull of dollars.
I did a mission and had one bad guy left. Hit pause and changed it to expert. Red eye the last one with a head shot and the achievement popped up
I bought all the maps and it unlocked everything and up popped the achievement

The Hungarian Half-bred is in Mexico and the American Half-bred is in the North, so you have to unlock act 2 and 3 respectively.

I have problem with one achievement.
It is that with stranger. I've to complete one task for stranger, I actually completed 2 or 3 (1- mother asked me to find her son, 2 - husband asked me to find her wife, 3 - buying a house with bunch of water) - every time I went to the purple circle, and there did what I had to, and nothing?
Maybe I have to check out my Journal and Challanges or what?

Excellent start, Fizz! Very helpful. A cheap, but easy, tip for the Gunslinger achievement: Hogtie an enemy, switch to expert targeting and aim for the head.

Marcin, for the mother, head to the hill on your left once you reach your waypoint. Search around until the purple shows up on your mini-map, and you'll soon see a question mark. It's not a person, it's some clues on the ground. Same deal for the husband, only I believe it's on the hill to the right of the waypoint.

As you progress you will earn money for completing missions, side objectives, looting enemies and placing bets in mini games. You need to hold onto as much money as you can. Some missions or objectives may require you to spend money. You need to hold $10,000 at once for this achievement to unlock so make sure you hold onto as much money as possible.

If you need ammo or guns always loot the enemies you kill. If you do this on a regular basis you shouldn't have to buy ammo. You may also be rewarded with extra money that the dead enemy is carrying.
Just got the achievement by having $5,750.So no,you don't need to hold the $10,000 at once.

I only count nine online achievements is that a typo or am I missing something?


I currently have

Have Gun Will Travel
Slow on the Draw
Posse Up!
Hit the Trail
The Quick and Everyone Else...
Go Team!
Red Dead Rockstar
Most Wanted

With the ninth being

How the West Was Won


What is the tenth achievement?

Or I overlooked an achievement.

To add something useful: To obtain the MP achievements you will either need a large posse (6+) or to get into a free roam where you have majority vote and simply vote out the other people. After you have control over the room if you are going for the team achievement split into two posse's and then launch a grab the bag game and let the team win that needs it then in vice-versa. If you are going for the FFA do much but if someone joins vote them out asap (if they stay it leads to large floods of people joining. I found it quickest to play CTB/Gold Rush and have the people/team not getting the achievement gather bags and bring them to the winning person.

Steps
1. Gather group (6+) recommended, If small group will need to find free roam where you have majority
2. If going for team split into two posse's
3. Vote out anyone that joins
4. Launch either GTB or Gold Rush
5. boost for given team/player
6. To make things faster bring bags to winning player and have him kill bag carriers.
7. A match can be accomplished in 2:00-3:00 mins


I'm willing to do a video with better description if needed. Would need 5-7 volunteers.
