I heard there's one stranger that won't be available after you completed the game. Does that matter?

The mission 'I know you' can not be completed after you have finished the main storyline. Without it there are still 18 stranger missions, and it is not counted for 100% game completion. So it does not really matter.

it does matter if you want the 50 gamer score.. if you complete that last stranger mission you get the nurture or nature achievement... what i dont know is if you complete the main story, can you still find strangers?? i talked to every ? that appeared on my map and i completed the game with 14 stranger missions completed.. why didnt they all show up?? being one short with the possibility of never finding more really makes me hate this game.. but i still love it... i might just snap it in half...

Three play through's in a row and each time both the 'California' and 'Love is the Opiate'stranger missions don't appear for me, I love this game but not being able to get 100% annoys me so much :(

I've completed the story and the stranger missions afterwards. Just keep looking, I googled "red dead redemption stranger map" and that helped a lot. Sometimes u have to wait a few days in between parts of missions, and some only appear at certain times.

The mission "remember my family" is only available after you've done the last story mission "last enemy to be destroyed"

To get the Redeemed achievement yo have to complete all side missions except "I know you", that doesnt count for 100% completion, but i guess it does count as a stranger mission for the "people ar still strange" ach. That mission can be finished during or after the last story mission. Actually, i think all of the missions can be finished any time.

The stranger missions are activated as you advance in the main story. If you have trouble finding strangers, just advance a little in the game stoyr and purple spots should appear in the map. Note that the active missions appear randomly, sometimes they appear on the map and sometimes they just dont. If you saw a pupl

Note that the active missions appear randomly, sometimes they appear on the map and sometimes they just dont. If you saw a puple spot but it dissapeared before you could start the mission, just wait a few days and it will appear again. if you have finished all main missions,but still havent got this achievement, just open your map and look for purple spots indicating the strangers.

If you have trouble finding the "california" and "loves an opiate" missions, try tracking them wiht the outfits. Go to your menu, select the treasure hunter outfit and track it with (X)and it should indicate you where california is (a ginat purple spot will appear on the map. the same for reyes rebelds aoutfit and love is an opiate.
