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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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! ;)

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 ...

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 ...

Well technically it has a purpose and also adds to game immersion ;) In all seriousness the NPC players give off tells as well as change their tones/mannerisms slightly depending on past hands and their current hands. The look around option gives you a chance to watch for those tells and play accordingly. It can also give you a better idea of when to cheat, ...

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 ...

They are meant to be sold. Although you'll meet random people out in the wild who want some hides, they'll just want to buy them from you. However, if you complete the the Master Hunter and Survivalist Ambient Challenges to Rank 10, you'll be able to make vittles out of animal meat and tonics out of plants, respectively. Vittles refill your health and ...

I don't believe there is any way to deliberately cause this to happen. It is most likely caused by the game confusing the models for the horse with the models for the man or woman, and it doesn't seem to happen to a specific NPC. I think the only thing you can do is keep playing until it happens. (If it happens).

When you purchase the deed to a horse, and "Use" the deed you will have that horse when you whistle for it (and the deed never goes away and you can use it as many times as you like). So purchasing the deeds to horses are the only way to switch to new horses without losing your old ones. I would suggest you purchase the deeds to the Kentucky Saddler, ...

Comparing to the better horses only, it beats the Kentucky Saddler in nearly all aspects (can't confirm speed). However, in terms of stamina the Hungarian Half-Bred wins and in terms of speed the American Standardbred wins. So overall a great horse but NOT hands down the best for you, try the other top horses to see if they fit your play-style better. For ...

Apparently it varies widely when you can receive the item. I had max honor before I even opened up Mexico. I received the rosary in Armadillo when I was heading out of town at one point. Funny story, I actually accidentally ran her over with my horse the first time because I didn't see her, took a hit of -100 honor and had to reload my save. :P Note, you do ...

No. you cannot. Unfortunatly, there are to many soldiers around, and they are hiding behind them. Even with the Evans repeater and moonshine along with a maxed dead eye means 22 dead bodies, all soldiers. The Federal Agents do not poke their heads up until after John gets gunned down. I have done the mission twice, and neither time was able to kill anyone ...
