Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption Achievements

Put the Posse on a Pedestal

Attain over 50,000 posse points in a single Free Roam session  

Although the achievement's description says you must earn over 50,000 Posse points, it fails to say that Posse Points are the same thing as Experience Points. So, technically, you must earn 9,001 experience points.

For this achievement, you'll need to earn a total of 50,000 points as a Posse. For obvious reasons, having more members in your posse will make the achievement much easier to obtain. The more team members you have, the less points everyone must earn. Completing hideouts is the fastest way to earn points. Pike's Basin will earn you a good 1000-2000 points per run, depending on how many other people are completing it with you, whereas Twin Rocks will earn you 200-500 points. However, Twin Rocks is much faster to complete.

Distribute your team mates throughout all hideouts and the achievement will be yours in no time.

I did this today and took awhile, pretty much just run around with your guys in a friendly free roam and do hideouts. I played for awhile after they pretty much all left to get the over 9000 cheeb, as it's pretty easy to do if you are doing this one. Friendly free-roam is the best way to go. Aside from dicks killing your horses, its a lot easier than having to worry about a dude running up and killing you.

I'm currently half-way to getting this achievement. I plan on leaving my xbox on until I get it. For some reason, I'm stuck in free roam alone, with no one joining. So this achievement is hard for me to get. Anyone want to join me so we can unlock this? I've earned most of the points already...

Just send me a friend request and message. Then I'll invite you to my posse.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012 @ 07:03:39 PM

So if I start a posse, get a couple thousand points, and everyone leaves, do I have to start all over, or can I just start a new posse? Assuming I am staying in the same free roam session of course.

Comment #41 by evanevanevan
Thursday, August 23, 2012 @ 01:19:15 AM

Man...spent hours grinding this stupid fuc*ing achievement... got up to about 45,000 points on my own, a full posse of people who each contributed somewhere between 0-25 points... and I got an Xbox live error, returned me to single player. Fuc* this achievement. Fuc* these little a$$holes who send posse join requests and do nothing. Fuc* this stupid game and its poor network connectivity.

Anyone want to do this? 3 people MIN, just do Pikes Basin, get 2k points, rinse and repeat. Takes 6-7minutes doing it by myself so it will be quick.
Add me DanTFC and msg me it about the achevments.

Was doing it by myself , had 25k points and got fucking kicked for no reason...

i need a few poker/liars dice achievements also if interested im willing to return the help

Comment #44 by Gringo Camino
Friday, January 04, 2013 @ 03:10:05 PM

This achivement is a pain in the ass to get (just like most achievements). The reason it is so hard to get is because it taks a lot of time. A trick to this is you have to get as many people in the posse as you can. Then each one of them do seperate hideouts. If you have the fortitude to do the same hideout over and over this achievement will be easy. The best one that will give you the most points is the hideout in Pikes Basin.

If you don't have a lot of people on your firends list message me on XBL I'm on most nights from 7pm-11pm EST and I'll be happy to help you get it.
