Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements

Slow on the Draw

Get 10 assists in a single Hideout in a public Free Roam session.

This can either be done with friends, or own your own with random players. The best way is to rush ahead and shot all the enemies in the leg. This doesn't always register as an assisted kill when another player kills a wounded enemy. If you get to the end of the hideout without earning the achievement, either start again or move onto the next hideout and do the same again.

If you're doing this with a friend tell them which enemy you are going to shoot so they can quickly finish them off. You may also kill another enemy your partner(s) have attacked. This will also count towards the achievement. If you see assisted "gamertag" on the right hand side of the screen it has registered towards the achievement.

what counts as an assist? I know if you shoot someone, and they don't die and then someone else kills that target you get an assist. but does disarming a target and someone else kills said target does that count? and which hideout is best to do this? Can it be on the dlc/coop hideouts?

Even if $2 appears you may not have gotten an assist. It has to say "You assisted _____" in the bottom. My strategy was use the cattlemen's revolver and shoot everyone and then my friend went around killing them all. $2 popped up at lease 20 times, but I only got 1 assist. The enemy has to be killed by someone else immediately after you shoot them for it to count as an assist I believe.

This would not be boosting. How could it be boosting? This one would be impossible without 2 people after all.What a dumb achievement. The assist don't register half the time and then random players will come in and kill you. I'll help out - GT: Kirk 377

Get another player and try to get into a mostly empty session. Go to a hideout (we did it in Pike's Basin). Clear out the first section so you don't have any interference. Then have one of the players call a horse. Get on the horse and shoot the horse in the legs (shotgun works well for this). The other player should get off the horse and kill it. If you did it right the player should get an assist. Repeat until the achievement unlocks.

I'm not sure how the game registers assists so it may take a lot of trial and error to actually get the assists to pop up. Aiming for the legs seems to work well. Note that getting the $2 popup is not considered an assist. You actually need to get a message that says you assisted the other player.

stay behind your posse member, use the henry repeater, shoot twice to the torso and let your posse member finish them off with a third shot, it tells you on the right hand side when you get an assist so you can count them up and resume regular play
