Red Dead Redemption Achievements

More than a Fistful

Earn $10,000 in Single Player.  

As you progress you will earn money for completing missions, side objectives, looting enemies and placing bets in mini games. You don't need to hold $10,000 at once as this will slowly stack up as you progress through the game. Complete as many side missions and objectives as possible. You should earn this somewhere between completing the game and earning the 100% achievement.

After completing the Treasure Hunter ambient challenges sell all the gold you have found as this will boost you towards the $10,000 total with ease.

It does not have to be $10.000 at once. I was actually kinda surprised when I got it, because I was not even near $10.000.

The best way to get easy quick money. Head over to Tall Trees located north on the map and set a waypoint to the symbol revealling a bear. Then just put down a bait and fire away. Skin everything you kill.

For me Five Finger Fillet is easy money. Just memorize the pattern and bet $100 each time.

I can also attest to this being cumulative without needing to have $10K in your pocket. Mine popped with about $5,400 on hand while I was selling skins and meat.

an easy way to get money is to purchase the bandana from Thieves Landing. Equip it then go to McFarlanes Ranch at nightime from midnight to 4 in the morning and kill the cattle. it is quite easy as the cattle keep respawning for a while then got to a store and sell it and you should get a bit.

I just played the game. I gathered meat and plants and some gold and sold it all at any opportunity I could. As soon as I got to Chuparosa and did 2 jobs there, I already had this Achievement!

So easy. Not there yet but I just started the game yesterday. Have 3.5 k in my pocket now plus whatever I've earned and spent.


Seriously the easiest thing in the world. I killed 16 wolves in one area in 5 min and that was worth around 600 maybe more just off of them. Shoot all the animals and skin them as you go around. Then when you're at the general store sell them. If you're working on your hunter/survivalist challenges you will constantly see animals roaming around. Why not kill and skin them, adds up really fast. Save if you get a ton though in case you get killed by a cougar or bear.

Good luck.

Easy just hunt a bunch of buffalo and bears and sell them in mexico. You can find buffalo by doing the missions with nastas and you can find bears up in northern tall trees. Wolves are easy money also.

Go to the camp in Riley's Challenge, it's located to the right of Río Bravo.
It's a Wolf spawn, 4 skinned wolfs per minute!

Do the Poppycock Stranger mission, you get $1000 added when you collect the cash, and if you steal the money back once handed over, it counts as an additional $1000, so $2000 from that mission alone! I still dont know where to find the Total Earnings stat though?

You don't have to have $10,000 on you at one time, you just have to earn that much of the period of the single player campaign.

Anyone know the most simple way of getting this quick? I heard if you bet with a man shooting birds and loose the bets then kill him after you won the last bet, he dropps loads of money?

Comment #34 by sleezecheeze

Hunting is the best way to do this.

Go to mexico and ride around until you see groups of birds. Start shooting them and soon another hunter will come along and start shooting them to. He challenges you but just ignore him. He will keep shooting and the birds will keep respawning as quickly as you can kill them.

The best thing is that the birds spawning are eagles, eagle feathers are worth $18 each and you can get up to 3 feathers per eagle. I've made $2000+ in 15 minutes doing this.

Easyest way if you wanna glitch, go to the bird hunting challenge challenge him and just wait till the timer is out, now challenge again (will cost double) do this until you can't double anymore, now complete the challenge and win all your money back, kill the bird guy loot him x2 money. Got met 10k in 5 minutes
