The advantage on buying a horse is that you will be able to call that -kind- of horse back even when it dies. Thus, if you buy a nice horse such the Kentucky Saddler, American Standardbred or Hungarian Half-bred you won't need to break them again to use them. By the way, once you buy a horse it won't automatically come to you .. you must open your inventory ...

I found 5 rabbits to shoot without too much trouble wandering around the Warthington Ranch. There seems to be a fair amount of smaller animals running around here most of the time. Here is a link for wiki about the Rabbits. Locations in accord with wiki: They can be found in the plains of Armadillo and other grassy, scrub-like areas. Rabbits are most ...

There are only three horses worth investing in. Kentucky Saddler (avg speed, avg damage resistance) Hungarian Half-Bred (slower speed, higher damage resistance) American Standardbred (faster speed, lower damage resistance) The speed and damage resistance noted are in relation to each other, when comparing these horse to any other in the game all three ...

No, there isn't ... the only way to tell you are about to die is the screen turning 'red-ier'.

Certain bounty missions pay higher if the target is alive, so hogtying is useful there. Also, it's just plain fun.

I had trouble with dueling too. Perhaps try shooting where your crosshair lights up red. Also wait until dead-eye automatically engages and it tells you to draw. (?) You can also try disarming the guy by shooting him in the hand. Some people, usually story related, cannot be disarmed, as such aiming for the hand will only get you killed instead, which can ...

You do not need every single XBL achievement in order to get 100% completion in Red Dead Redemption. You need to do the following: Complete all 57 story missions Purchase all 5 rare weapons Do the 3 Nightwatch jobs and 2 Horsebreaking jobs at least once Unlock all 9 Outfits Purchase all 13 player houses Complete all 7 gang hideouts Complete 20 bounties, ...

There are four mythic horses in "Undead Nightmare", rather than one. You asked about War specifically, but I'll include info on all four. War: Randomly spawns in New Austin. Famine: Randomly spawns in Mexico or Tall Trees. Pestilence: Randomly spawns in West Elizabeth. Death: Randomly spawns anywhere the other three spawn, but only after you've tamed the ...

If your curious about the different horse breeds, http://reddead.wikia.com/wiki/Horses offers all the stats for each breed of horse. Screenshots of the different horses allow you to determine which one you currently have and if you really want to pony up the money for a better one. It also has locations in the wild to show you where to catch the horse, if ...

As far as I know there is no way you could kill any main character in the last stand as the only ones showing there are generic army characters.

Identifying the breed of the horse is done by sight alone. If you review the deeds in the general store, they'll give you a description of how the breed looks. Beyond that, pictures on game guides are your best bet. If you're not purchasing the deed from a general store, you will have to determine the quality by the appearance of the horse. Skinny mounts ...

Trains will normally start back up automatically after a certain amount of time passes. That amount of time differs depending on the reason the train stopped (reaching a station vs. stopping because an animal is in the way). However, there is a documented bug where the train stops and never starts back up: Occasionally, the red/blue train will stop and ...

The advantages to hanguns in Red Dead and other games is the close-mid range, accurate and high fire rate of the pistols allowing the player to manouver and reload faster. In hardcore or free-aim, stafing around close range areas with a hangun or shotgun will give you the advantage to let loose at a higher and smoother rate.

Unfortunately it doesn't count. You MUST play the story missions with the SAME horse. In the other hand, you must do this with STORY only missions. If by some mean you end the game you will have to start it again to get this trophy. (Replaying story missions doesn't count). This makes this trophy the only one you can miss. By the way, there are a total of ...

To disagree with some of the other posters, The Last Enemy That Shall Be Destroyed mission on the Red Dead Redemption Wiki offers the following as a possibility. Even though the player can shoot Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham dead in the final Dead Eye moment, Ross will still be alive in the following cutscene.

That does seem to be the fastest way. You could also try riding as a passenger in one of the stagecoaches set up on the edge of one of the towns. Alternately, in free roam you can go to one of the wagon wheel markers in a settlement, but that works pretty much the same way.

The NPCs aren't that good at hold'em so if you have some poker knowledge cheating isn't really necessary to bust the NPCs. With that said it takes a while and can get really boring playing long enough to eliminate everyone from the Blackwater game for the outfit. The way I did it was to cheat, get caught, kill the accuser in a duel and then get back to the ...

According to an official post from Rockstar: Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition features the full, original Red Dead Redemption game - winner of over 160 Game of the Year honors - with a brand-new Hardcore single-player difficulty option, plus the wildly popular Undead Nightmare single and multiplayer offerings, as well as all the additional ...

The best way to preserve your horse while attempting to complete the "Spurred to Victory" achievement is to hitch your destined horse to a post, and then only use other horses. This is easily done if you are able to use purchased horse deeds. To the point of dismissing a horse while actively using it, the answer is no. Your options are limited to leaving ...

There is no way to change your Dead-eye level without cheating. There are 7 cheats you can get for being a Social Club member, 2 of them will allow you to change between Dead-eye level 2 and level 3. Doing this will disable saving and achievements/trophies. Level three gives you the extended time of level two, but with more control. I found myself ...

There are two "War Horses" in Red Dead Redemption, and each is specific to a particular half of the game: In the base game, the "War Horse" (a horse used in war) is a pre-order bonus that was later added as paid DLC. It is also included as part of the "Game of the Year Edition." If you have the War Horse, the deed will be in your inventory. It's one of ...

In order to unlock an outfit later in the game, you have to eliminate all of the other players in a game at Blackwater. Cheating sure makes doing that a lot easier. It's also not as hard as I thought it was. I tried it a few times at the beginning of the game and decided it wasn't worth it at all. But when I was working on unlocking that costume I ...

No, there is no way to filter out the language in the game at all. I am trying to recall if there is any swearing in the online cutscenes, and I don't think so, but I'm also rather inured to it, so I may be misremembering. The online cutscenes for the hideouts tend to be only direct explanations of what you have to do, nothing story related, so I think ...

As an addendum to Teebery's 4 points: 5.. Every trigger pull increases your duel meter, which needs to be higher than the other guy's to win. 6.. You get more duel meter off some parts of the body than others -- like head or gun hand. You also get more from a white crosshair than red. 7.. Shooting the opponent's gun hand will often instantly end the ...

I think you might be over-thinking this a bit. When I come across these missions I just go into Dead Eye mode and fight. Generally with Dead Eye enabled the fight is over pretty quickly with me as the victor. The reward from them is the same as any of the random missions... increase in Fame and an increase in Honor. If you don't want or need either, then ...

Once hogtied, try to put them on the railways tracks... :) Try to do it with a lady to earn the Dastardly trophy. Otherwise, you can give an hogtied man as a snack to a bear, a wolf pack or any other nature representant. Remember, it's far west and no one told you you have to be brave and honest! ;)

The general strategy is to weaken the bear with a few rounds from one of your firearms, and then dodge its attacks and swipe at it with the knife. The number of bullets depends on what weapon you're using and where you hit them. There's a guide on this page that I found mildly useful, but mostly it just takes practice. You can also do this on horseback ...

Seems to be recent problem with RDR and all players are affected. As already suggested in the referenced topic submit a support ticket. More tickets, more likely the fix will be sooner.

Well you can't kill any of them straight away, but if you keep playing as Jack you will eventually duel and kill the main federal agent badguy (you need to talk to the agent at the station in Blackwater, not on the map).

I believe that it is the case that all the horses of a certain breed have the same color patterns. So if you're looking for a particular horse, you can go scouting for one, and when you see the right color pattern, you should be good to go. For instance, I believe that the all white horse is the Hungarian Half-Bred. Conversely, if you're curious about ...
