Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements

Over 9001

Attain over 9,001 points in a single Free Roam session

Although the achievement's description says you must earn over 9,001 points, it fails to say that the points are the same thing as Experience Points. So, technically, you must earn 9,001 experience points total.

Whenever you are in a Free Roam session, you will earn experience points by doing various activities. Completing Hideouts, killing civilians or killing other players will earn you experience. Whatever method you choose, it will be a bit of a grind to earn over 9,001 points. You can check your progress by hitting up on the D-PAD.

Completing Pike's Basin (hideout) is the fastest way to earn points. By completing the hideout, you earn anywhere from 600-1500 points. How much points you earn depends on how well you complete the hideout. Killing more enemies, not dying, etc. All of these effect your points.

whoever reads this do NOT grind this...doing the complete all hideouts in a single session will get you 11k easily...its a waste to grind this out then do the hideouts seperate :)

@9 when you turn on a cheat (like triple xp), you should see a message that says something like "warning, enabling cheats will disable achievements". So... "cheaters" really don't prosper in RDR.

Serves him right. he can cheat in SP all he want, but in multiplayer it is just pathetic. Well, it is in SP too :O

Triple xp ain't a cheat. Rockstar enables it a hour every now and then just for fun.

Even if triple or quad xp is on it's only counted on base xp. Did it today during quad xp and it popped when I passed 9k on the roam player list.

Tried to do this in friendly free roam; got kicked because I had the highest score and wouldn't join a posse.

If you haven't already gotten the "Have Gun Will Travel" achievement, this one goes well with it. Conquering every hideout in the game will take up at least more than half of this achievement. I just repeated Tesoro Azul, Fort Mercer, and Pike's Basin over and over until this one popped.
