    Roll 4 Targets in the first round of Tombstones

    This is an achievement based on luck, not skill. Tombstone is a basic dice game payed on a holographic game board. At the center of the board is a sheriff surrounded by four mutants. There are 3 rounds to each game. At the start of each round, four die are rolled. For every die that shows a white crosshair icon, a mutant is shot by the sheriff. Get four white crosshair icons on the first throw to unlock this achievement.

  • Hopefully this won't be too bad... I hate luck-based Achievements with a passion.
  • Based completely on luck. $5 minimum bet, but over time you will win more than lose.
  • I have been working on it for 20 minutes now. Its in the back of Wellspring a board game on the floor. Pure luck nothing you can do about it.
  • Wow this achievement took WAY too long to get
  • This takes entirely too long. I've been pressing 'A' repeatedly for over an hour and just now killed all four in the same roll--the were on the second tier. FML
  • I made a decent chunk of change off this one. Put the bet at 25 and won a lot more games than I lost till i got the jackpot.
  • i got this on like my 5th game. and i rolled all 4 on like my 2nd game but it was on the 2nd round =]
  • Third round, I rolled three of them. After around 10 rounds of betting 25 and nearly going broke a few times I finally got all five.
  • First time I came across this game I rolled and got the achievement right off the bat. I had raised the bet to $25... Seems to be just luck.
  • Finally got this last night after about 1.5 hours. Not too bad since most will make make money while playing the game
  • just make a save before you play and when you get the achievement just load up the save so you don't lose any money
  • omg.. i rolled like 5 or 6 times in a row 4 skulls ... -_-
  • 400 rolls and still nothing, then i get off, get on 5 min laters jump in the game first try get it. I wouldnt mind playing it alot if the guy in the background would shut the F up. "roll it" "roll it" "roll it" I know to roll it you ass clown.
  • my buddy got it right away, i have played alot and still havent gotten it
  • Right well if you're not serious about getting these achievements don'bother trying for this one unless your the luckiest person ever, these mini games suck and this achievement can only be won by random computer generated luck, at least with 5 finger fillet you have to actually do something... That's my advice (Funny thing is that as soon as I started typing this I got it haha, only took 45 minutes of spamming the A button)
  • well going on peoples posts, the more you bet the better chance of getting this, I'm hoping it will pop for me soon
  • Yeah don't try getting this betting any less than 25, I tried it for awhile using 5-15 bets, after 10 games or so I tried going to the max. Got 4x the first try, nothingthe second try and jackpot the third.
  • It's like waiting for the last oil can in borderlands new robot revolution. Very redundant!!!
  • loving the fact that it goes target, target, target then the excitement of getting the achievement after an hour of trying then skull, the bitter disappointment of this
  • got it on the first one
  • Took me over an hour...
  • Decided to take another stab at this and bet all my money I had (20, just bought a LOT of ammo). Broke even the first two times then got a x4 the third. Upped it to 25 and hit jackpot the first try. So happy I don't have to worry about this one anymore.
  • 4 skulls can go to hell....having such bad luck rolling... thank god i've got about 2000 to play with...but i'm still down...ugh... such crap.
  • Go flippin' figure. As soon as my comment posted, I got it. There goes two hours... back to the fun of the game!
  • Pure luck. I got it eventually, got the 4 skulls more often than not though......
  • Alright, well it took me exactly 125 times to get it. However I recommend betting 25 every time and just letting it go, because I ended up earning 2250 cash over the course of my games.
  • Ive literally played this for a total of about 5 hours now betting only $25 and nothing. I dont think it matters the amount its just stupid fucking luck.
  • 20 mins keep at it lol
  • omg......6 f-ing hours...and nothing!!!!!!!!! i want to kill the guy that came up with this shit!
  • Holy sh*t! I'm replaying the game on easy, came in for my first few games, and came in for my first few games and on the third go I put down $10 and BOOM! *JACKPOT!* unlocked! finally :D
  • I got this achievement on my first go at Tombstones. I didn't understand the game at first but I rolled 4 targets at the first attempt and the achievement popped up straight away. I was playing through the campaign on Easy though, if that makes any difference.
  • Press A for an hour - 15 points
  • Achievements are meant to based on skill/challenges not f***ing luck. -_-
  • i played betting $25 and didnt get it, then i played $10 and got it pretty quick
  • like in bioshock, when you had to get a jackpot on a slot machine, or even the mass effect cheevo
  • @18 yeah that sucked, so did alot in the robot revolution dlc achievemnts
  • Such a stupid flipping achievement, lol i cant believe how annoyed im getting ive been pressing A now for like half an hour and have lost more games than ive won, i keep getting 4 reds every roll, how foooking stuuuupid is thaaat!!!!1
  • im not sure why im wasting so much of my life on this achievement....15G really??? guess i am a gamerwhore :P at any rate, still no luck. 30 minutes in, betting 25 at a time.
  • F#%K LUCK!
  • Haha! I came here to see if there was a trick anyone has found to get this to proc and while reading through the post and just hitting "A" over and over it popped, took maybe 5 min, damn I got lucky, had the bet maxed out too.
  • This cheevo makes me want to punch a pregnant woman, kick a puppy and toss a midget
  • I.got.it.several.times just not on the first roll
  • been doing this for a while now, got it on the 3rd round but not on 1st :( but as a bonus ive gone from $670 to $1500+
  • finally got it! played for about 30 minutes and was going to give up for the evening and it finally hit.
  • Half an hour wasted, but got it eventually. Actually got three sets of four skulls before it...
  • Lady Luck loves me. First time trying Tombstones, placed my bet and I got this. Maybe the game is taking pity on me for starting straight away on nightmare?
  • I see a jackpot and burst out in joy, til i realised it was on tier 2...
  • How i wish one can get back 2 this cheevo when they want. But i need 2 get this b4 leaving wellsprings because it is tied with the 'minigame achievement'
  • #48 You can play this in SubwayTown also, along with FFF, Strum, and Teague's deck.
  • @alchemstrpm For a limited time only though. After you get the last mission, the board goes inoperative.
  • This requires just some luck. I read how it worked, started the game, went to play the game, and I got 4 crosshairs and the cheevo :)
  • I finally got it, on my second play-through. I think that the game rolls 6-siders for the result, but the skulls take up more sides than the cross-hairs.
  • 4 hours of nonstop pressing a... I'm starting to get pissed off...
  • NOOOOO! I just got it on the second and third rounds! I fucking hate this achievement with a passion.
  • I was doing very well. My last 3 rounds have consisted of 4 blanks. I've since lost about $300 I get one mutant left on the last round then roll 4 blanks What the fuck is wrong with this game?!?!
  • this is how you know when a game sucks. even if you liked the game it leaves you knowing that it sucked. if i was trying to get all skulls i'd have it about 100000 times over
  • i think your chances of winning this are 1 in 1296. i went two entire games in a row where i got NO crosshairs and then i finally got the achievement to start the next game.
  • 5 min mostly betting $5
  • this SUCKS, ive watched 2 movies while constantly tapping that A button and still no love -_-, i dont see the achievement in this at all!
  • 3 targets and then a skull, I can see why they called this game RAGE -.-
  • i keep getting 3 targets at best first round, but rarely get 2 or more. getting 4 skulls 1-3 times per two games. and every time i bet more than 5 i lose no matter what. im barely breaking even. this achievement is bull
  • this is the dumbest one by far, the dice must have 5 skulls and 1 target on the damn thing! its almost impossible, deffinatly just RAGE quitted.
  • definitly pure luck there's nothing good to be said about this cheevo nothing but random computer generated luck i got lucky about 40 minutes of button bashing
  • sixth time in a row it starts off with 4 skulls. at least im making a shitload of cash
  • Was about to get pissed after the Witcher's stupid dice achievement. This one did not take long at all and actually gave me a lot of money money money!
  • I"ve goten so many triple targets and quadruple skulls...
  • Wow it literally took 400 tries until I got it.
  • So, 537 failures, still no jackpot, in fact I've had 839 quad skulls. This leads me to believe that only one side of each die has a target on them, which is completely unfair. Oh, and by the way if I hear "roll em" one more time, I will fucking kill someone.
  • God damn this achievement, I wonder which developer thought this was a good idea, I want to know so I can break their kneecaps, and kidnap them. Then I will have them tied down with only their hands free so they can play this minigame. Every time they would lose I would stab them in the toes or somewhere else with high nerve concentration, then every time I heard "roll em" I would shoot them. I wonder how much suffering I could inflict before that sonuvabitch went crazy, this would be so much easier if it were fair, but after so many failures, I know for a fact that there are more skulls on these die.
  • just spent about a half an hour on this again and finally got it. made almost 900 in profits too. time to move on!
  • 2 hours and counting this is bs
  • Thought I was gonna be in for the long haul on this one-so got a massive pizza in, a pack of beer and a massive bag of Doritos Chilli Heatwave for after...and then did it on my second attempt. Unbelievable. Then, to top it off, I carry on playing putting down $25 at a time and all 4 targets drop in on 2 of the next 3 go's!?!? Sorry lads, I think my Xbox has robbed all your luck-I'm off to make a mint!! Keep at it though, in fairness my first attempt when the achievement dropped was just betting $5-I don't know if this is anything to do with it but give it a try and good luck ;) Matt
  • Got it in 30 minutes or so betting $25 the whole time. Yes I agree this is unfair, But then every game is unfair. Happy to finally got it, Hang in there those who don't. Good things come to those who wait right?
  • everytime doing tombstones i egt 3 targets in first round and than 4 in the 2nd for over more than 37 times
  • a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a, and after a few hours it pops for you depending on how lucky you are
  • I hear if you post here, you will get the achievement >.>
  • After a couple hours of bashing the A button finally!!! Hate luck based cheevos!
  • I registered just to post how much I DETEST this achievement. It'll fucking line up with three targets on the first roll just to get my hopes up and then FLATTEN them. This is evil. Only positive is that people are right when they say you will win more than you lose. Betting 25 each time has netted me another grand in profits so far!
  • ALSO, this whole game is just ridiculous. Like $25 is the most you can bet so even if you DO jackpot it, the most you can possibly win in this game is a meagre $250? What the fuck is this shit?!
  • OHHH MY GOD I FINALLY GOT IT, I actually just lost my mind over this!! NEVER playing this stupid minigame again, my god
  • Takes forever but spamming it is the only way.
  • "I'll get this soon" I said. "I'm lucky I said" I said. "I won't get 4 skulls in a row multiple times" I said. I'm a dumbass.
  • Got it. 30 minutes. Won't miss that game.
  • took me 45 miniutes, really not to bad.
  • Two hours into it, finally got it.....on the 2nd tier, FML! God I hate luck achievements
  • This has to be the single most frustrating achievement I've tried for... Spent 2 hours straight yesterday trying to pop it. No luck whatsoever. Got 4 targets once in the 2nd round and once in the 3rd. Lost track of how many times I got 3 Targets and then a Skull on the first roll... Whoever at id / Bethesda that came up with this needs to be fired!
  • Took me about 15 minutes of trying. Got 4's on the second and third round about 3 times each before getting the achievement.
  • ...AND on my very first roll after arriving in Subway Town I get the 4 and pop it. Finally!!! Lol
  • Played about an hour till it happened on the first tier. Didn't give me the achievement. Not happy.
  • You just get 4 in a row randomly after you just keep spamming the game. My trick is.... while I play I like to win at least 4x bonus to make money.. and I always bet at 25. I would save before playing, and if I lost then I would reload. Soon as I reloaded, and then starting playing immediately, I got four in a row, and my achievement. Hope this helps, it's easy... Effortless..
  • Faster way to make money is playing the card game, if you collect all the card and pick the right ones, it should be easy to stack up..
  • cards*
  • This really is just luck hey. I got it on about my 10th game. After reading the comments, I thought I was gonna be in for the long haul but thankfully not.
  • About 10 mins for me!
  • Why can't the achievement be "get four skulls on your first roll"? I would have this a thousand times
  • pure lucky, got it after 30 minutes playing on hard
  • I cannot belive I got this in under 10 minutes of button mashing. I can imagine this going on for hours if you're unlucky
  • At #97 : same here bro , in less then 10 min ! Maybe its patched , i realy dont know . The fun part is that you earn some bucks , so bed high like 25p , or what !
  • In the middle of an A,A,A,A,A,A,A spam fest while I type this. It has to happen eventually. Right? Roll'em
  • Just now popped. About 45min. This is the truest random cheevo I've encountered. Glad to be done with it. Good luck to all you who don't have it yet.
  • WTF is wrong with this game?!? After few hours of mashing A button, I get 4 shots in the first round. It shows clearly "10X" but this freaking achievement don't pop up!!! I said to myself "it's just a bug" and still keep mashing for nearly an hour.. I get second JACKPOT - "10x winning bet", and.. guess what? DON'T POP UP!!! I just hate this game! Never again!..
  • Got it first try at $25
  • If I hear "roll em" one more time....I say we start a petition to murder that voice actor...I am going to be hearing it in my sleep
  • haha I was just about to give up on this one I decided to read through the comments for help and it must have been my lucky charm because it finally unlocked. Probably spent 30 to 45 mins mashing A button on this one.
  • A,A,A,A,A,A,AAAaaaaahhhhhhhh. 2 Hours.
  • Target Target Target FUCK
  • About 30 minutes for me. Glad to get this out of the way. ROLL ┬┤EM!
