Complete Answer FAQ (already asked, already answered)

Guys, I'm seeing LOADS of repeat questions regarding this game. Either people aren't searching for answers, or we're asking so many questions that it's rolling questions to page 2 & 3 without people seeing the full answer.

Most of the questions are answered in the achievement guide, but I'll do my best to not repeat things even MORE.

So here I decided to try and group some things together regarding what has been asked, what has been answered, what known problems there are, and what people are doing for workarounds.

As an aside, this may not answer EVERY question you have, but it will answer the most pressing (i.e. the most repeated) I'll try to update this more as I go, but this is ONLY the 1st four pages of posts:

Animals, Hunting, & Locations
Manifest Destiny (Buffalo)
I need a list of Animals
Beavers, Boars, and Armadillo
Skunks
Complete Animal List
Skunks Dont Spawn
Fox, Racoon, and Skunk Locations
Where are Beavers?
Grizzly Bears

I hope this gets utilized, and then after that I hope it gets updated. Also, people should use this thread for those "quick questions" rather than make a whole new thread. Nice job compiling this.

Dear Lord I hope a mod stickies this ASAP. I too was getting so pissed to see the same 4 threads all asking the same damn thing on the front page. If I ever see "Spurred to Victory" in a thread title again, I may cry and never stop. Nice work mate, hoping this is used.

Nice job! I didn't realize exactly how bad this was getting until I saw the massive list of links you posted. This will be my go-to thread next time I need help with something.

It would be a good idea to include a link to the achievement guide as well. Sometimes the best answer is in the most obvious place.

Thanks Sm1ttySm1t, hopefully people will utilize your thread. I'm getting tired of people asking where beavers are every other post.

I've updated this with a few more threads. I'm astounded by the repeat questions in here lately.

Is my achievement just glitched or what? I'm well into the story and have obviously completed the Fort Mercer mission. I've also completed the Nosalida hideout. The achievement is not popping up. Do I need to go back and do Mercer again? I think I just answered my own question; that possibility hadn't occurred to me.

I have another suggestion. Maybe after all of the links, you could type out a few of the more common questions, especially if there is an easy or quick response. Ex:

Where is the California Stranger Mission?
Can stranger missions be re-done?
Can you play the game after the story is over? (seen this at least twice)
How do I get the Avatar Rewards (provide link)


etc. etc. etc. Just a suggestion. I was looking all over for this thread again, then
found it stickied, haha.

I would suggest replacing the Misc. Prestige Question with my thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=232096) which actually thoroughly explains the process and what happens. Thanks!

  • Your first encounter with Sam Odessa is next to a rock to the north of the Scratchin Post near some distinct looking archways. If you have trouble finding him listen for his harmonica.California Stranger Location
  • The second encounter is just north of Cueva Seca, to the west of the words 'Gaptooth Ridge' on your map.
  • The third is to the west of Ridgewood Farm, immediately under the 'r' in 'Gaptooth Ridge' on your map.
  • The fourth and final encounter with Sam is to the south of Tumbleweed, where you'll find his dead body being eaten by vultures. Marston finds $24 and a letter to his family on his body. Travel to Armadillo to mail the letter.
