Secret - Strangers

by FCSNAKE Jul 30, 2010

Let No Man Put Asunder
Unlocked: Complete Obstacles in our Path
Location: Sitting near destroyed homes northwest of Coot's Chapel
While riding around near Coot's Chapel you will see a woman dressed entirely in
white clothes. Speak to her and she will tell you that she's supposed to get
married and you need to find her husband. Your only clue as to his location is
the musicians in the saloon so head on over that way and speak to the man at
the table. You can either pay him five dollars for the information or you can
go handle his wife for him.

The easiest way to handle this, and the cheapest, is to go talk to his wife.
Use your lasso to hogtie her after speaking to her. Then simply bring her back
to the musician to find out where Pete is - some place called Odd Fellows Rest.
That's not sounding promising.

Make your way to the northwest of Armadillo to find this location. It's as you
would expect it to be, a graveyard where old Pete is buried. So much for the
poor lady getting married.

Glitch - Homing Fire Bottles

by ReNveLaTioNs Sep 10, 2010

No pre-prep is needed for this glitch as it works everytime, as this was overlooked by the developers in Rockstar. When equipped with the fire bottle, you are still allowed to go into dead eye. Although the aiming reticule will be gone, it is still "present" during dead eye mode, in the middle of the screen. Therefore, you can still "paint" a cross on your enemies, assuming if you have the reticule on any part of their body. Once marked, Marston will throw the fire bottle. When thrown, the fire bottle defies gravity and actually locks onto the enemy you selected and acts like a flaming homing missile. This is great for people speeding away on horses/carts. The bottle will keep flying until it hits the target and explodes in a fireball.

Secret - Easy Horse Breaking

by mcc24 Aug 05, 2011

When you're breaking a horse, be it for a mission or your own personal amusement, to avoid getting thrown off the horse simply move the left analogue stick left and right repeatedly, ignoring what the game tells you to do. The horse will buck around a bit more than usual, but you'll end up breaking it successfully without the massive aggravation of doing it the standard way.

Secret - Easy Master Hunter Completion (Level 5)

by neel101 Jan 31, 2011

In order to complete the challenge of killing a cougar with a knife, simply wait until the mission 'At Home With Dutch' (given by MacDougal in Blackwater.

At the point where you are confronted by the cougar, turn around and jump up on the rock after the cougar comes at you. Since the cougar will not be able to jump up to you, all you need to do is fall on top of it and spam your knife attack; takes about 3 hits. Skin and you're all set.

Note that this is a later in game mission, so you cannot do this challenge early on.

Secret - Skip the Skinning

by sandy9999 Jan 31, 2011

Kill an animal and hop on your horse. Park the horse over the carcass (look for the small, black X on the map that marks it) and hop off. When you get the prompt to skin the animal, the horse's presence will prevent the short cutscene from occurring. Occasionally you'll notice that a similar obstruction -- box or barrel -- will allow you to skip body-search cutscenes and the like.

Secret - Sharpshooting Challenge - Hats Off and Disarm

by pow143 Jan 31, 2011

There is a sharpshooter challenge that involves shooting the hat off an enemy, then disarming him within 3 seconds.

One solution would be to try doing this during a duel. Hit the hat then aim for the gun to disarm the enemy.

Another approach is to go into Mexico and shoot enemies with sombreros, as those hats are a lot easier to sight and hit.

Secret - Hunting Challenge - Knife Task

by 1dobby1 Jan 31, 2011

For the task of killing an animal with a knife, you can weaken the target first (especially handy with bears) using gunfire before finishing the task with a knife.

If you are by yourself and do not have a partner to back you up with a firearm, you can try shooting a bear in its head with the Henry-Martini repeating rifle and one knife stab should kill the target.

Secret - Sharpshooter Challenge Level 10 (Disarm Six Without Reloading)

by Jan 31, 2011

Here's an easier way to disarm six enemies without reloading or changing weapons. Do the mission with the Gap Tooth Breach hideout (the one with the treasure hunters) and lay waste to everyone outside the mine.

Then equip a large magazine weapon -- the Mauser is ideal -- and enter the mine. Once inside you basically encounter a trickle of one or two enemies, so you can easily disarm them at your leisure.

This slow trickle also means there is ample time for you to restore your dead-eye meter without fear of being rushed by the enemy.

Another easy way to complete this sharpshooter challenge uses an exploit with the Dead-Eye system (and it could be patched in a future update):

1. You must be far along enough in the game to have aquired the Carcano Rifle and level 3 Dead-Eye.

2. Go to the Twin Rocks gang hideout and eliminate the two snipers on the tall rocks before attempting to disarm the bandits. You must do this because you need to get to the small wall around the building for cover.

3. Go into cover behind the small wall and wait for a bandit to pop up. Immediately go into aiming mode to activate Dead-Eye. Instead of painting the weapons, just put your crosshairs dead on the weapon and fire.

Repeat the same steps over and over until your disarm the six bandits needed for the challenge. Since you are activating Dead-Eye, you will automatically reload, but since you don't manually press the reload button, the game doesn't count it as "reloading a weapon" thus completing the challenge.

Secret - Beating All Players in Poker in Armadillo

by tae Jan 31, 2011

Note: This will satisfy the requirement for Scrap 3 of Walton's Gang outfit. First put on the Elegant suit(the one which lets you cheat in Poker. Go to Poker room in the back of the bar in Armadillo. Play a game and Cheat BUT LET THEM SEE YOU CHEATING. This will make you duel. Kill or disarm the player that challenges you for Honor or Fame.

After that there will only be 2 players left at the Poker table, play again and get caught CHEATING again. you duel again. On the Last Poker Player I'd advise NOT to cheat -- the last player is fast and catches you cheating easily.

Now you'll be playing 1 vs. 1. Use this pattern to win: Check or Call THEN Raise and the Opponent will Fold Every time. If you want the game to go faster and BUST the opponent out. On your First hand, raise then check or call then raise.

Secret - Infinite Honor

by amuniri Jan 31, 2011

Note: You must be wearing the Elegant Suit for this to work. Find the least expensive poker game in town. Purposely get caught cheating, so that a "duel" will ensue. Wait for the "draw" sign to flash and aim at your opponent's right hand/arm in order to shoot their gun from their hand. This neat little trick will net you +100 Honor. Plus, its repeatable, since you can just keep getting caught "cheating" in poker.

Secret - Money Exploit

by fro01 Jan 31, 2011

I just figured out how to make an easy $100 every 20 seconds early on in RDR. If you go to the knife game "Five Finger Filet" in Armadillo you can bet $100 max each game.

The button presses are always the same, so as long as you memorize the sequence it's a piece of cake. The sequence is:

- RED / B
- BLUE / X
- RED / B

(this pattern repeats). I just sat here for a minute or two and I'm already over $1,000. Handy if you want some quick cash early in the game.

Secret - Master Hunter Legendary Ranks (Multiplayer) & Character Unlocks

by odd200000 Jan 31, 2011

There is an easy way to get all the Legendary creature (killing 10 of one animal). When you explore the area they are in, lead all the animals to a nearby structure (or building).

For the wolves, there is a building on the hill. Now, this is the only one where they will actually come into the building because it is so run down, but there is a walkway/plank near the door. Stand on it, and shoot all the wolves, they can't get you.

The boars' hunting ground has the same with a run down half building (by the shoreline) but they won't attack you in the building.

The cougar grounds probably has the most difficult building. There is a house on the top of the hill. The best way to do this is have a buddy on horse lure them to your direction. When the cougars walk in front of the door/windows, shoot them.

The bears' hunting ground is probably the easiest of the bunch. There is a cabin, that has plenty of open area to shoot the bears from.

And for those who keep asking about unlocking women or legendary characters, those unlock with EXP points. There's no secret task, just build your ranks.

Secret - Online XP Farming

by mienhboi503 Jan 31, 2011

During online free roam, go to a gang hideout and neutralize the enemies there. When reinforcements are sent, deal with them as well, then loot all the corpses.

After you nab the money and ammunition, leave the hideout and the enemies should respawn after a short while. You can repeat this process as much as you want.
