Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements

Man of Honor / Chivalry's Dead

Attain highest Fame rank and either highest Honor rank or lowest Honor rank.  

Note: While completing missions make sure that you do not have your bandana equipped if you own one. Wearing one while completing story missions or side missions will cause you to not be rewarded your fame or honor points from the mission.

Fame and Honor will come from progressing through the story missions. Every time you complete an objective you will be rewarded with Fame or Honor points. Raising and lowering your Honor level is a lot easier and will require less effort. Decide what path you want to take and stick to it.

This will unlock at some point later in the game. Complete as many activities as possible. Once you get close to the 100% completion this should unlock with any issues. Just make sure you don't stray your either good or bad honor, as it will just waste time. Raising your Fame bar will take longer than your honor bar so make sure you help people at the side of the road and complete all the misc tasks.

Lowest Honor rank nets you a black horse with a white face.

does it matter if you get the highest fame and honor at the same time?

Make sure you don't wear the black bandanna, you don't get honor or fame when you are wearing it

Get your honour up quickly by wearing the elegant suit and keep getting caught
cheating at poker, when challenged to the duel after getting caught, shoot the
weapon/arm holding the weapon ONCE, and get 100 honour each time for letting the
guy live :)
repeat as needed :D

I've been playing for about 2&1/2 hours on this game as a bad ass is it too late to switch to being lawful? Forgive me if that sounds a bit cheesey.

So far while in Mexico, doing good deeds for strangers gets me no +Honor; however, if I do something dishonorable I will lose honor...

honor comes form certain story missions, as well as atranger missions and activities such as bounty hunting and night watch etc.

there are only 3 ranks of honor, so if you're already "hero" there's no need for gaining any more honor.

for easy fame go and play poker in armadillo or farlane's ranch while wearing the elegant suit. simply cheat and get caught, win the duel and you get 50 (kill) or 100 (disarm) fame w/o losing any honor.

For honor, just do the "Nightwatch" job and, instead of killing thieves, just hogtie them. You should earn 50 honor per thief. Did this in BLackwater.

I've practically got the lowest Honour rank (netted the black horse with white face Rare) but haven't had this Achievement pop. Does anyone know any ways to get Honour down quickly? Thanks in advance :)

I have hero for honor, but I'm stuck on gunslinger for fame. I completed the main story so I don't know if that's got anything to do with it. I keep getting fame when I complete challenges and whatnot and the bar appears full, but it just doesn't go to legend and the achieve my doesn't pop. Any ideas? Thanks!

I had the same problem #18 but then realised that the bar keeps moving along! I did the whole shooting the gun-hand and eventually I only got +25 Honor instead of +100 because the bar was full! Achievement unlocked!

You can easily get this just by completing the story, but doing the random tasks you get asked to do also helps. Turning in a bounty alive also grants 200 honour.

Fame takes ages. My honour has been full for about a week now but my fame still has ages to go.

I'm willing to help anybody with any achievement/challenges for the price of 20 headshots per achievement/5 per challenge. My gt: IKV91.

The Highest for Honor is Hero/Desperado & the Highest for Fame is Legend. I've already got the Hero title but am only at Merc for fame so have a bit to go.
