Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements


Reach level 50 and pass into Legend.

Before you can turn into a Legend you need to level up through the different levels in multiplayer until you hit 50. Once you hit level 50 you will be given the change to start over again as a Legend.

To change your status from rank 50 back to a rank 1 Legend hit while in multiplayer, then go down to the multiplayer tab. You should see your multiplayer profile on the screen; press while on this screen and you will pass through to your next round of leveling. Just be careful not to hit while in this menu if you don't want to level up just yet.

If you have passed over and already become a Legend, this achievement will unlock automatically once you start playing multiplayer.

I have reached the 50 level and get the "How the west was won" achievement. After this, I downloaded the "The legends and killers" DLC and I didn't get the "Legendery" achievement. What I must to do to get this ? Do I must to start from the beggining :/ ? Please help

All you have to do is press start, select multiplayer, and then at the outfitter page you have to press Y to pass into legend. If you did this you will be rank 1 again and you will unlock the achievement. I read that it also works if you already have passed into legend before installing the second DLC.

Does this unlock if you haven't purchased the DLC Pack?

No it doesn't, because the (locked) achievements are only added to your profile when you buy the DLC, not earlier.

If you don't want to lose everything, back up your save on a USB then pass into legend , get the achievement and then reload with the back up save and bam, your still on level 50 with all your goodies.

This is fairly easy now, as Rockstar has 2-3 hour x3 XP events every week or two now. But who knows how long they will do it that often for.

If I pass into legend before I have the DLC can I still get the achievement when I download legend and killers or play undead nightmare disk?

When you're at level 50, just press start, go down to multiplayer and select the first option and press Y

Does passing into Legend reset your Journal challenges?

Passing into Legend resets your Unlocked Weapons and Challenges, you keep Titles, Characters, Playlists, and any Golden Guns you've unlocked (but lose any progress if not completed; for example if you had 100 Headshots with the Volcanic Pistol and have it golden, it stays golden, but if you only have 99 Headshots with the Mauser when you go Legendary, you will lose your progress and have to start over for the Mauser)
Your Mounts also reset, but you get one new mount for every Legendary level you do, so each mount unlocked slightly earlier each time through.

is unlocked*

There are 5 levels of Legendary, each one with 50 levels to level up with. So in all, there are 250 levels in Red Dead Multiplayer.

If you've gone legendary and didn't have the Legends and Killers pack yet, the achievement will not unlock until you have it. When you do, the achievement will unlock as soon as you start multiplayer the next time.

To go Legendary: Pause, go to Multiplayer, press Y, and you will be asked if you're sure you want to go Legendary, which if you do, you will obviously pick yes. and voila, you're back to Level 1 with your trusty Cattleman and your loyal Mule, El Senor. You'll know you're legendary when the symbol next to your name is a solid star.

@ 18 - What about me? I do not have Level 50 yet - I got to about 35 playing last summer, and I got the DLC on Dec. 26th. Are these two level 50's (Regular/DLC) one in the same? If not, will I need to use the Press Y to Pass Into method? What do you suggest?

Has it been confirmed that a game save to USB will allow you to reload @lvl 50 after passing into legend ?

- go back to xbox home
- plug in your usb. go to settings -> memory -> hard drive -> RDR -> RDR, multiplayer save game.
- press 'a-button' and select copy. now copy it yo your USB. now you have a backup of the original.
- remove the usb and start up the game
- in multiplayer, press start -> multiplayer -> 'y-button'
- you get a message that you cannot go back bla bla, ignore it and move on.
- 'achievement unlocked' with you on level 1
- go back to xbox home. plug in your usb, go to settings again -> memory, now select usb -> rdr -> rdr multiplayer save game. slect copy and then select your hard drive. 'overwrite it' say yes. now the legendary savegame is gone and your level 50 dude, fully armored is back in s
