Red Dead Redemption Achievements

Mad Marston: The Trail Warrior

Attain Rank 5 in all Undead Nightmare Challenges.  

There are 4 Undead Nightmare challenges:

  • Undead Sharpshooter
  • Undead Hunter
  • Four Horses of the Apocalypse
  • Undead Treasure Hunter

The location of the horses:

  • Pestilence is found somewhere in between Tall Trees, Manzinita Post, and Aurora Basin.
  • War is located somewhere between Benedict Point, Tumbleweed and Gaptooth Breach.
  • Famine is located somewhere between Chuparosa and Tesoro Azul.
  • Death is given to the player after completing the main story, though may also be found in Mexico.

Undead Hunter:

  • To kill bears, wolfs and cougars with a torch, take the horse Pestilence as it can't die. Cougars are often found west of Torquemada and in Tall Trees, bears can be found in Tall Trees and wolfs can be found pretty much everywhere.

Undead Sharpshooter:

  • Rank 3: Equip Phosphorus bullets and make 5 headshots.
  • Rank 4: Go to El Presidio, as 2 of each spawn there.
  • Rank 5: Best way is to go to El Presidio, and execute (move close and press without aiming) the zombies.

The Level 5 challenge to get 5 Sniper kills in 8 seconds can easily be done with the the close range, instant kill that can be done on most zombies.

Use Jorge's Gap to help you attain Level 5 in the challenges. I found that zombies are clustered, all wall to wall in this area of the map. You can get "Kill five zombies on fire with dead eye" and "5 Sniper kills in 8 seconds without using dead eye" without any problem. I found that if you save your game in Armadillo you can always reload your save if you run out of sniper ammo or fire bottles while working on this challenge. Jorge's Gap is indicated on the map as a dark terrain line just west outside Armadillo.

Also, ride the Pestilence horse while working on the hunter Level 4 challenge "Kill 5 undead wolves, 2 undead grizzly and 3 cougars with only your torch." It has a high pain threshold and the animals will not kill your horse you are mounted on so quickly as you hit them with your torch. It takes 7 melee hits to kill a bear.

I have exactly the same problem I know where it is I just don't know how to get to it??? It is really bugging me because I've tried going up through the mountain going directly north and neither way can I get to it.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how the #@£% to get some explosive ammo? I've been looting and stealing chests for some hours now, no ammo. I have the Undead Outfit which is suppose to replenish ammo every day, but it wont.

I need the ammo to level the explosive rifle mastery.

Well, somehow I managed to get my hand on the "Army of the Undead"-outfit, which comes with an ammo replenishing relic. Some guides on the internet supposed that the "Undead Cowboy" was the outfit, but they are wrong.

One fun thing though, when completing the Explosing Rifle Mastery-challenge, I also got the achievement for Master Exploder, which is from the DLC: Liars & Cheats, allthough I do not own this DLC. Pretty sweet.

for the sniper rifle challenge you can just get close and melee them.
this is way easier than it sounds

God I wish I thought of doing them execution style!

What I did was go to El Presidio and climb up to the cannon tower, then lobbed undead bait as far as I could to get them in a cluster, then let rip. It was hard because they do wobble about a lot... but I got the job done in the end :)

Also if you are doing it in a similar way to this, try not to kill any spitters... they explode and knock the rest of them all over the place.

Execution style is by far the easiest way. You simply go to the mouth of Jorge's Gap and let rip with the executions. :) I did it first try without even having looked at my Sharpshooter requirments.

Love accidental game progress. :D

To make sharpshooter rank five easier on your self use rolling bock rifle and cue up phosphorous bullets, now you’ll get your kills even if you don’t use head shots. Jorges Gap is an easy place to do it.

I can never seem to find 4 types of zombies together to get rank IV. Anyone know of a good place to find them?

#s 14 & 15, I got this one while taking back El Madrugada. Remember, the ones that scurry around on all fours do tend to walk around like plain zombies too.

Just a heads up, if you break all the apocalypse horses, but accidentally/intentionally kill them along the way (aside from war) then you can still get them all back after challenge level 5 for the horses is completed. I couldn't find any way to get pestilence back for the hunter challenge after I killed him before. Now I have his deed and can call him whenever I want. So don't panic, there's still hope.
Also, if you kill or loose track of a horse before breaking them, they will eventually reappear. Keep in mind that it may be in a different location, that happened for my fire horse ( I forgot the name ) when i couldnt catch up to it in the wild. yet it re-appeared elsewhere later on for me to lasso and break.

I've been looking for FAMINE for 2 full 4 hours sessions, which is the only thing stopping me from getting 2 achievements... anyone have any tips... I've just tried riding back and forth across mexico. The worst thing is I've seen the horse twice, ages ago, once when i was in a hurry to get elsewhere and the second time I rode right passed it not realising it was it until too late!

So can someone answer me a question? I accidentally finished the game and I got Death but I never got Pestilence but one day I found Pestilence...and I need to complete rank 5 for the Four Horses of the Apocalypse. Can I get Death again? Or do I need to start a new game?

Where on earth do you find tomahawks in the undead version? All I need to do is finish the tomahawk challenges but cant find any at all
