Gonna start on this today...I'm at 98.7% I believe in the game, I feel like I Still have a lot to do but it's mostly all just the little things like horsebreaking jobs and such. Do you have to complete the horsebreaking jobs and things like five finger fillet at all the locations or does it count just doing them at one location?

Comment #8 by Gawain X
Friday, November 12, 2010 @ 11:37:16 AM

Only need one of each job/game.

Comment #9 by Gawain X
Friday, November 12, 2010 @ 12:09:31 PM

Sorry, that was wrong.. Only one time each game, but you need both horsebreaking jobs and all 3 nightwatch jobs.

On the mini games do you have to do anything special, like make a profit? Or can you just win once? I am 98.9% done with the game and am not sure if I need to do more bounties or play more games. Any help would be appreciated!

This was much more easier than I thought it would be. Extremely easy, I must say. If you Sign up to the Rockstar Social Club and keep track of your progress there, you should have no trouble at all. Only thing that was hard for me was killing a bear with a knife, and Poker, since I have never played poker before. I won Poker with pure luck.

Hi I'm at %95.5 and i'm having trouble getting the last bit, do i need to make
a profit at each location for Poker & Blackjack as i think i lost a couple of games early on? Also do i need to win the other mini games on maximum bet?

I need to recommend an addition to this achievement.. can someone add onto the part about the bounty missions that the bounties only pop up on the map if you are in the town between 7:00 am and 7:30 am I had to go back and do 12 of the bounties in a row and it really sucked because I didn't get very many to pop up.

If anyone hasn't done the hunter challenges well skunks always spawn out he back of armadillo near the fast travel in the grass at night and killing a bear with a knife it is easy shoot the bear once with the buffalo rifle in the side and run aroun for a little wile kill every other animal that's comes near you maybe if u didn't do that much damage to the bear shoot it once or twice with the cattleman pistol coz it's weak and the bear should start to run away just chase it and sooner or later it will get stuck on a rock or a tree and then just knife it

I'm at 99.1% and I can't find anything else I have to do. Bought and unlocked everything, completed everything I need to do, and went through and checked the stats page to make sure I didn't miss anything. Everything is done and somehow I still can't seem to get to 100%.

Saturday, June 25, 2011 @ 06:17:39 PM

easy, easy way to get all 20 bounties...spend allllll of your money. then kill some people in a town, surrender to the law, and get arrested. since you cant pay the bounty, they will instantly give you a bounty job to complete. repeat process for all bounty jobs

Comment #34 by brbnasec
Sunday, July 03, 2011 @ 04:00:56 PM

when I first got this game I somehow skipped the lasso tutorial at the ranch and ended up doing a ton of bounty missions. One of the outfits says I need to catch a member of a certain gang alive, but I've got all 5 or so of them already dead. are you able to redo those eventually or will I have to start over?

Comment #35 by Pitmaster Spear
Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 02:12:39 PM

This sucks because I am about 87% done with every thing, but I missed the one stranger that mission that must be done before you finish the main story, so I will have to star all over to get this achievement. So forget about it, I am not doing that.

Thursday, August 11, 2011 @ 05:03:02 PM

I found that using Rockstar Games Social Club helped as it allowed me to keep track of what I had and had not done in order to gain the acheivement. Your exact progress can be seen and you won't waste time thinking that you are getting to the 100% by doing other pointless things within the game.

Comment #38 by Adar Kane
Friday, August 12, 2011 @ 12:26:09 AM

The game was bugged for me because in Mexico i shot a bounty to disable him, but took him back alive. That broke the games brain because it didn't know whether to mark him as alive or dead; whatever. I did the math with the strategy guide, i'm at like 98.5% because of that dumbass bounty not counting for anything. Always assume the game is touchy and will gladly screw you over.

Comment #41 by GamerGaijin
Saturday, September 10, 2011 @ 11:19:44 AM

I'm stuck at 99.something % and I dunno why this isn't unlocking for me either. I think it's some sort of glitch because according to my Rockstar profile, it says that I've done all the requirements except I apparenlty haven't been to 3 different spots on the map (when in fact I have, dozens of times) and it also says I didn't get the Bandito Outfit, when in fact I DID get it and I can access it from my menu whenever I go to a save point. This is bogus.

this one took awhile and was tough, but i finaly got it and it was really fun to get especially the 8 challenges. the hard part was the bounty locations. i thought there was one target at one location and i hed everthing except one in languna borrego and i had to keep going back. i gave after a few times and a couple months later i went back and tried again and got the last one in mexico. hope this helps anyone who having trouble with the bounties. oh and the eaist way to clear the new austin hideouts is start at pikes basin in the moring so its bright andd you can then move west and do gaptooth breach last since its a cave and there wont be sun in there anyway. it was easier than it thought. it only took me about 12 or 13 hours in the games time so dont worry. and if you die dont worry ab

Comment #67 by oldben
Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 01:34:44 PM

Just got it! Most of the work for this achievement got done, for me, on the way to the others. By the time I was done with everything else I had 93.5%, with nothing but some bounty locations, some rare weapons, U.S. hideouts in 24 hours, and one stranger I had missed. If you are stuck in the 90's odds are you are in a similar position. Several bounties must be collected from each region, new bounties will spawn between 7:00 and 7:00 if you wait around. One thing that tripped me up at the end that may be obvious to others: that stolen safe you have to return to armadillo by wagon is not one of the 5 U.S. hideouts you have to complete in 24 hours. All in all it was a lot of fun to track everything down. If you've played through the game I recommend going for it.

Comment #68 by oldben
Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 01:44:09 PM

The easiest way I've found to complete level 10 of the sharpshooter challenge is to run yourself out of pistol ammo except for one clip. With the Mauser this leaves you with 15 bullets to disarm 6 enemies. Since you can't reload your weapon anymore, you can go into and out of dead eye and still complete the challenge. Hope this is helpful.

I'm having trouble with getting one of the uniforms. Your supposed to win at poker at blackwater to get a scrap for the outfit. But I suck at poker T-T

I went through the rules and then when online and saw what Texas em rules and what cards are good or not but there's wayyy to many things that you can have and I dunno if I have a good hand or not. There must be a card list out there that tells you each card combo and how good it is out there somewhere!!

I've been doing the cheat trick where you allow yourself to get caught then win the duel and then you only have to worry about the one other poker player left at the table. But still can't win. How many rounds are there til it ends? I need help OTL

Comment #75 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 05:53:20 AM

The easiest way to complete the Sharpshooter challenges that have to do with disarming or shooting hats off of heads, is robbing the Armadillo Bank. If you're good, equip your bandana first. Make sure you're full on medicine and tobacco. As soon as you enter the backroom of the bank crouch in front of the safe on the right. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WASTE AMMO!! Just make sure, YOU DO NOT LET GO OF THE LEFT TRIGGER UNTIL COMPLETED. I've beat this game countless times and you can beat Sharpshooter 10, with the Springfield Rifle. Yes, the one with a clip cap of 4. After you fire the first shot from dead eye, your clip will go down to 3, which is normal. As long as you hold the left trigger and cancel dead eye on your own, it will pull every shot after that from your total capacity, instead

Comment #76 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 06:02:55 AM

*Continued* of your clip. This is easier with Dead Eye Level 1 or 3. If you know how to sneak into Mexico and Tall Trees early. WAY TOO frustrating with Dead Eye Level 2! If you're having trouble with the hats, try the preacher out in front of the Armadillo saloon. Equip your bandanna, first though. Then look in the saloon for one of the Walton Gang members that has a top hat. Aim for the very top, the middle-ish isn't usually good enough. If you kill him, you won't get into trouble with the law, unless one is standing SO close he feels threatened. Some times, civilians with guns will open fire for the same reason, but if you heal and run outside, everyone who shot you will get mowed down by the law!

Comment #77 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 06:17:23 AM

If you're having trouble knifing a bear, count how many body shots it takes to kill it with the buffalo gun. Keep in mind you can kill it from horseback with your knife. It takes a little getting used to, but it makes you more mobile and if it starts running away, it's easier to rundown. If you're on foot, use a tree or rock to run around. It's also easier if you're in or near Beecher's Hope. Make the bear chase you into the property, because for some reason aggressive animals are LESS likely to attack you. They are however, more likely to run off if attacked, though. Another good reason to do this from horseback, is because I RARELY run into just one bear. Almost every time I whistle for my horse, a bear shows up.

Comment #78 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 06:25:27 AM

One thing I forgot about the Sharpshooter missions. It's not enough to shoot the gun hand. You have to shoot the gun! The law files into the backroom of the bank one at a time from the very outside. They get really close, which makes it SUPER easy to shoot their guns. Just make sure when you go into the menus for health or tobacco, that before you select the item, you pull and hold the left trigger. If you want to check your progress in the menus, just make sure afterwards that you pull the left trigger before you back out into the game.

Comment #79 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 06:34:39 AM

With any of the challenges that say, "kill 2 (or however many) of ANY wild animals." I always clear out the Twin Rocks hideout. Then use the vultures that circle around. They won't fly off if you miss, so it makes them ideal. For the tomahawk challenge, where you have to kill a flying bird, just climb one of the buildings, so you're closer to'em. It won't actually "pop" until you leave the area, which is usually away from the stone wall that circles the hideout. I don't know why this is, so don't freak out if it's not popping right away.

Comment #80 by Lemon38
Monday, April 08, 2013 @ 06:42:33 AM

For the bounty hunter missions, you can get all the locations to open from one spot. What I mean is, you can use Armadillo for all 8 New Austin bounties. Just make sure when you're tracking down your target, that you wait until you see the words, "you can capture or kill your target," before you engage ANY of the bad guys around the area. For some reason the locations won't count if you're picking'em off too early.

Comment #81 by Lemon38
Thursday, April 11, 2013 @ 12:44:35 AM

Gambling seems to be giving some trouble. This works for both the Walton Scrap and the US Army scrap. However, this tip only puts the odds in your favor, it doesn't guarantee a win. You can go on a losing streak just easily as you can go on a winning streak. First thing, you can either force a duel or point your gun at someone at the table. Reason being, it's a lot easier to beat one person than multiple. I fold until one of two things happens. Either I get a pair or at least one of my cards is a 10 or higher. Once you get a hand you like, the next thing is betting. The key is to only increase the bet by lowest amount possible. This encourages the computer to engage in a back and forth bet. I.e. it won't scare the computer from betting. I tend to win more hands than not, by thi
