Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements


Place a hogtied woman on the train tracks, and witness her death by train.  

Before you can attempt this achievement you will need to lasso, which you earn from Bonnie in the early missions. Once you do have it you can lasso and hogtie any women you desire, though there are some, which are easier than others. If you don't want to damage your fame or honor you can buy a bandana from Thieves' Land at the tailors shop.

Once you have either item you can now lasso your victim. Lasso and hogtie the lady of choice and place her on your horse. You can now make your way to the train track, check your map to see where the active train is. You will be looking for red train icon following the tracks. Head towards the train and play your victim on the tracks by pressing . Now just stand back and watch as the train plows down your victim and the achievement unlocks.

Same, thi first time i did this was at night in Mexico to a woman who helped
Thugs ambush me, it didn't work.

But the second time did, in America to an innocent Ranch lady from Rathskeller Fork

You've got to place her perpendicular to the track. I did it at first and she was in the middle of the line parallel to the tracks; the train just went over her. I did it again and placed her across the line so her neck was on the actual track. It then ran her over and the achievement popped. You'll also know you've done it cause of the blood splatter :)

Brilliant achievement; I have to retry it though as I put the woman down parallel to the tracks the first time.

I tried this again after not getting it when putting the woman parallel to the tracks. I was just riding around and noticed a train had stopped so I grabbed a woman, tied her up and put her on the tracks near the train. Once it set off I realised it was too close to turn her into red mist and I could just see her body freaking out as the train passed over her. Once it had left I went for a closer look and the body was like a pancake on the tracks!

3rd time lucky though! :)

Hi there, folks! I'm new here and I've started a new Red Dead Redemption game today.
Gotta get a lot of stuff in the game, I know that. It's quite long, and takes time...I was playing the latest Castlevania and now that I finished it I've begun Red Dead Redemption. I thought about the advantage of being in vacation (from university AND from work :D!) to start this loooong game, and I hope I can get help here with you guys when I need!

Is this possible to do without the Red Dead singleplayer? I have the Undead Nightmare Collection stand-alone disk and I haven't gotten far enough to know if the train is even functional. Anyone know?

This is amazing, I would do this without even having an achievement to go for. Although my horse likes to stay on the train tracks too no matter what I do.

People having trouble getting it try getting a whore from armadillo bar and stand close by when the train comes. I tried twice with a normal woman until my friend told me.

DAMN! I just made an account here so I could tell you guys I did the I KNOW YOU stranger task, donated money to a nun, then I hogtied the bitch just as the train arrived in Las Hermanas. Timing was perfect. I put that bitch just past the tunnel up the tracks some. But I guess someone already killed a nun? DAMN! -__-

And yeah, I agree gang. This achievement is one of the most fun by far, of all time

Comment #55 by SzilardUK
Tuesday, July 26, 2011 @ 01:24:12 PM

For those who has issues with this achievement.
I did it several times with no luck, and started to get really fed up with it. (guess I am the odd one out but I think it is a really stupid and morbid chievo anyway) Then I realized that the guy always looks aside so I thought I might as well aim on the women with my pistol so the next time I tried that way and it worked.

Comment #56 by meandeadly90
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 05:43:17 PM

funniest achievement ive ever done. what made it more funny was when the train came my horse was automatically forced to follow me and went on the train tracks and died with her.

She was accross the tracks, i saw the blood spatter, spent 20mins waiting for the train because i had also spent 15mins earlier trying to run after it....Not impressed, i will be trying again cause i want to have this funny achievement but for whatever reasons its not as simple as it sounds :S

It was annoying trying to get her on the tracks perpendicular but it ended up being worth it. Even better is that the woman I grabbed was a nun. :)

So i fucked this up 3 times and on my 4th attempt i managed to get the girl on the tracks and i was so excited to finally watch the bitch go splat... but instead the train just pushed her off the tracks... REALLY!?!
But at least i got the achievement so whatever.

Friday, June 13, 2014 @ 03:53:16 PM

They keep disappearing!!! Ugh. This is the third time I'm trying to do this... The first time the train ran her over, but I guess she wasn't perfectly perpendicular because she exploded but the cheevo didn't pop... Then the last two times between me putting her on the tracks and walking away from the tracks, SHE'S GONE! Ugh. This is the last one that I need and I feel like it is becoming waaaaay more trouble than its worth. I'm not even excited to see her explode anymore! ... Okay, that's a lie. But I'm still pretty annoyed.
