Experience an epic fight for survival across the sprawling expanses of the American West and Mexico, as John Marston struggles to bury his blood-stained past, one man at a time." Red Dead Redemption is an open-world third-person action game, produced by Rockstar San Diego and released on both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in May 2010, in North America, Europe and Australia. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Controls ~ < < /__/ RDR-01B \__\ On Foot L2 Target/Zoom L1 Draw/Holster Weapon/Hold for Weapon Wheel R2 (While Aiming With L2) Fire Weapon/Punch/(With Weapon Holstered) Push R1 (Without Gun While Aiming With L2) Block/Enter/Exit Cover Left Stick Movement Right Stick Rotate Camera/Change Targets (Casual Mode) L3 Crouch R3 Look Behind/(While Aiming With L2) Trigger Dead Eye Triangle Mount Horse or Vehicle/Interact with Vehicle Circle Perform Greeting/Focus on Important Event/(With Weapon Drawn) Reload Weapon Cross (Hold) Run/(Tap) Sprint Square Jump/Climb/(With L2 Button) Roll/(With L2 Button, in Melee) Dodge D-Pad Up Whistle for Horse D-Pad Right Right Shoulder Aim D-Pad Down Zoom Out Mini-Map D-Pad Left Left Shoulder Aim Select Satchel Start Pause Menu On Horse/Vehicle L2 Draw Weapon/Target L1 (Tap) Draw/Holster/(Hold) Weapon Wheel R2 (While Aiming With L2) Fire Weapon R1 (Tap) Slow/(Hold) Stop Left Stick Movement Right Stick Rotate Camera/Change Targets (Casual Mode) L3 N/A R3 Look Behind/While Aiming With L2) Trigger Dead Eye Triangle Dismount Circle Perform Greeting/Focus on Important Event/(With Weapon Drawn) Reload Weapon Cross (Hold) Trot/(Tap) Gallop/(Hold Near Companion) Match Speed Square Jump/Hitch Horse/Rear D-Pad Up Whistle D-Pad Right Right Shoulder Aim D-Pad Down Zoom Out Mini-Map D-Pad Left Left Shoulder Aim Select Satchel Start Pause Menu ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Gameplay Mechanics ~ < < /__/ RDR-01C \__\ Read Dead Redemption is a third-person action game, very similar to Rockstar's previous titles--the Grand Theft Auto series, and the oft-overlooked Bully. The controls are simple, intuitive and easy to learn. There are, however, a number of minor mechanical elements that players new to Rockstar's style, or the "GTA-style," may be unfamiliar with. This sub-section endeavors to enlighten that demographic. Saving & Loading Like most games, you can load previous saves from the main menu. But saving your game is a bit different. In Read Dead Redemption, you must be at a "camp" to save--which is anywhere you can sleep. You can set up camp in the wilds (by selecting "camp" from the satchel menu). You can rent beds for the night. You can purchase rooms. And, early on in the story, you are given your very own "home." Inside a camp, you can not only save your game, but change your character's outfit and restock on ammunition as well. Venturing through the West Travel is a fairly simple affair. When you set up camp in the wild, you can fast-travel to certain destinations. You can hitch rides on carriages, and either sit back and enjoy being a passenger, or skip the traveling sequence entirely. Going by foot can be fun, but also very time consuming, so most of the time you'll be using a horse. Horses 1. When you tame a wild horse, you will not "own" it until you tether it. 2. You can only own one horse at a time. 3. When you own a horse, whistling will ALWAYS call that horse to you, no matter where you are, unless the horse is dead. 4. When you buy a horse from the general store, you can re-set it as your owned horse (after either abandoning it or it dies) by selecting that horse's deed from the menu. Dead Eye Similar to the VATS system in Fallout 3, Dead Eye is a mechanic whereby you slow down time and paint your target. Fame & Honor As you interact with the world of Red Dead Redemption, you will accumulate fame and honor. Your fame stat stats at zero and can only increase as you play; the honor stat starts at "neutral" and will increase or decrease depending on how you react to the various people and events you encounter in your travels. Note: all perks stack on top of each other. Fame Rank Perks Legend Your bounties are halved. Gunslinger Stealing horses will no longer be a crime. Mercenary Doubles the amount of time you have between law attacks from one to two days. Buckaroo It costs 25% less to bribe lawmen. Greenhorn Increases the number of random events. Nobody N/A (starting rank) Honor Rank Perks Desperado Eyewitnesses will only report murders. Road Agent Shops in Thieves Landing charge half as much for items, and they'll pay you more for the items you sell to them. When you whistle, a special black horse will come to you. Rustler Witnesses require half as much money to bribe than usual. Drifter N/A (starting rank) Honest Joe All jobs pay out double the normal rate. Peacemaker All shops charge half as much for items, and all shops will pay more for the items you sell to them. Hero You'll be able to get away with any crime short of murder without worrying about witnesses. Bandana You can purchase a Bandana from Thieves Landing or Escalera. Wearing the Bandana hides your identity, allowing you to commit all kinds of atrocities without effecting your fame or honor ranks. Removing the bandana after committing a crime will also cause your wanted level to decrease more quickly than normal. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Characters ~ < < /__/ RDR-01D \__\ Read Dead Redemption features an impressive cast of individuals, representing the swath of people one might encounter in the old west--from Chinese immigrants to native Americans, to the typical snaggletoothed prospectors and idealistic revolutionaries with a bone to pick against their own government.

Former outlaw John Marston arrives in Armadillo, the largest town in the New Austin territory, with orders to confront and deal with one of the most dangerous, notorious gangs in the West. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ John Marston ~ < < /__/ RDR-02A \__\ "Exodus in America" Reward: N/A Prerequisite Mission: N/A Walkthrough: As soon as you get off the train, you'll be able to do pretty much whatever you want, but I would recommend immediately following the story missions for a while, at least up until you earn the lasso. Anyway, go inside the saloon, marked on your map as all mission objectives are, with a yellow marker. Follow Jake to Fort Mercer. If you hold X (PS3) or A (Xbox 360) while near to Jake's horse, you'll match his speed. "New Friends, Old Problems" Reward: Safehouse +150 Fame +50 Honor Prerequisite Mission: "Exodus in America" Walkthrough: Follow Bonnie around the Ranch. This mission is essentially a dressed up tutorial, so if it gives you trouble... you may as well give up with the game entirely. When you get to the field, kill the rabbits. Then, fight off the coyotes in the chicken coops--often they'll run out an away, but should be pretty easy to track down. Bonnie will also help you take them out, and you don't have to worry about them attacking you, so it's very easy. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Bonnie MacFarlane ~ < < /__/ RDR-02B \__\ "Obstacles In Our Path" Reward: +20 Fame Prerequisite Mission: "New Friends, Old Problems" Walkthrough: Horses handle better the more you ride them, so unless you're supremely confident in your skills, it's probably best to take a short break and ride around New Austin for a while. Otherwise, this race can be a bit tricky. That said, the race itself is pretty simple: there are small, smoky signal fires marking each waypoint you need to get to. Just keep a quick pace and don't stress your horse too much. Odds are, if you fall off your horse, you won't be able to win. However, you do not need to win the race to complete the mission: merely complete the circuit. "This Is Armadillo, USA" Reward: Stagecoach Travel Mini-Game: Poker Mini-Game: Five-Finger Fillet Prerequisite Mission: "Obstacles In Our Path" Walkthrough: Hop in the driver's seat on the wagon, and get moving. You'll want to stay on the road for a faster, smoother ride. Once you get to Armadillo, Bonnie will give you some money to buy medicine from the Doctor: do so. Once you've finished this mission, you'll be able to travel (fast or slow) across the world by hitching a ride on a stagecoach. "Women And Cattle" Reward: Mini-Game: Horseshoes Prerequisite Mission: "This Is Armadillo, USA" Walkthrough: Go to Bonnie's house to speak with her. He goes all David Copperfield on her, with considerably less eloquence and considerably more brevity. After the scene, it's time to go and round up some cattle. Herding cattle is a bit tricky: basically, think of the herd as a singular object. You want to stay behind the cattle and ride forward to drive them in the same direction. If you go too slow, the cattle will ignore you; too fast, and you'll simply ride through the herd instead of driving them. It can take some getting used to, but once you've got the hang of herding, it's not too much trouble. Keep an eye out for stragglers (the herd is marked with blue icons on your mini-map, so they're easy to spot) and move them back into the main herd if they go astray. For this mission, you'll be spending a lot of time herding the cattle: out the pen, down the road and to the pasture. Then, to an old oak tree. Fortunately, you won't have to worry about being attacked by either man or beast, so take your time and enjoy being a cowboy. "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions" Reward: Lasso Horse: Kentucky Saddler Prerequisite Mission: "Women And Cattle" Walkthrough: Go to MacFarlane Ranch and talk to Bonnie. You'll finally meet her father, whose absence till now is rather conspicuous. After Bonnie gives you the lasso, hop on your horse and follow her and her father to the wild horses. Remember: you equip the lasso through the weapon wheel. Hold L2/LT to aim, and R2/RT to throw. You'll have to be close. When you've lassoed a horse, keep L2/LT held down until Bonnie and her father also lasso it. Once they've got the horse tethered between them, get down of your horse and onto the wild horse to trigger the horse-breaking mini-game. It's fairly easy: just keep you balance with the left analog stick. Keep following the MacFarlanes around. Bonnie's father will leave with the first wild horse, and you and Bonnie will capture another one: repeat the same process you just went through, then let Bonnie ride the wild horse you just roped, and head back to the Ranch. After getting back to the Ranch, you'll need to head out again to track down a herd of wild horses. Herding horses is just like herding cattle, save the horses tend to be less docile. But, again, you'll not have to worry about being attacked by animals or outlaws, so take your time, be patient, and drive the horses into the canyon. Once you're all in the canyon, you'll need to chase down a stallion by yourself, lasso it and break it. Once you've lassoed the stallion, you'll need to keep it lassoed by holding down L2/LT. Dismount your own horse and get on the stallion. Complete the horsebreaking mini-game, then ride it to meet Bonnie. "A Tempest Looms" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions" Walkthrough: This herding mission differs from the last in that it is slightly more complicated, and introduces a timed element. Meet Bonnie by the corral, and follow her to the herd. Keep an eye on your map and the cow indicator at the top of the screen to be sure no stragglers are lost. Drive the cattle to the marker. When you get there, the cattle will be startled by a lightning strike and stampede toward a cliff. If you don't move out right away, you'll lose your chance, so gallop on after them as quickly as you can. To stop the cattle from stampeding, you need to cut them off--so zig-zag through and in front of them. Once you've cut them off, the cattle will stop running and turn around, heading back toward Bonnie. Stop all of the stampeding cows, then herd the stragglers back to the main group (with Bonnie) and herd the whole lot of them back to MacFarlane Ranch. "The Burning" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "A Tempest Looms" "Spare The Rod, Spoil The Bandit" Walkthrough: Talk to Bonnie by the Blacksmith, and then follow her out of the ranch to look for her father. She'll spot "someone" soon enough, and dive into the woods. Follow after her to find her father, and the site of a massacre. He'll send the two of you back to the ranch. when you get back to MacFarlane Ranch, you'll see a pillar of black smoke rising from the ground: the barn is on fire. Ride to the barn and dismount. You'll have to climb up the side of the barn, via the conveniently-placed scaffolding. Red Dead Redemption is not a platformer, so the climbing/jumping controls aren't the best. You'll need to stand at the edge of a platform, and stand still, in order to grab onto the ledge above you. Climb up the scaffolding and onto the roof of the barn: follow around the back side of the barn, and go inside. Jump down to the ground, and go to the barn's door to open it. Then, smack two of the horses to get them out of the barn: you'll have to ride the last horse out yourself. Build up a bit of speed so that you can leap over the debris. Once you're out of the barn, ride the horse to its stall. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Marshall Leigh Johnson ~ < < /__/ RDR-02C \__\ "Political Realities In Armadillo" Reward: +$20 +??? Fame +??? Honor Prerequisite Mission: "Obstacles In Our Path" Walkthrough: Follow Johnson to the saloon at the other end of Armadillo. Once Walton leaves, whistle for your horse and join the sheriff in pursuit. Remember to hold down on X/A while near the sheriff's horse to match its speed. Walton will run to his hideout, so keep up. Grab some cover and move up the hill,taking out all of the outlaws in your path. At the end of the mission, you'll encounter Walton: you can either shoot him in the leg to capture him alive (for a bit of an honor bonus) or kill him. "Justice In Pike's Basin" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Political Realities In Armadillo" Walkthrough: Talk to Marshall Johnson outside his office, then follow him and his deputies North to Pike's Basin. Dismount, and fight your way inside, using cover to spare yourself some bullet holes. You can either take the right fork, with the sheriff, or the left fork, with his deputies. Whichever route you take, it doesn't much matter. Make your way through the basin shooting all of the outlaws you see (watch out for snipers on the opposite side of the basin, however) until you meet up with the other group. Converge in the center of the basin where the hostages are held. Once all of the outlaws are dead, approach the hostages to free them. "Spare The Rod, Spoil The Bandit" Reward: Winchester Repeater Prerequisite Mission: "Women And Cattle" "Old Swindler's Blues" Walkthrough: Talk to Marshall Johnson in Armadillo. Follow him and his astonishingly competent deputies to Ridgewood farm to round up the outlaw posse. Examine the remains you find along the way. When you get to Ridgewood, examine the the two areas on the map to look for survivors, then join back up with Johnson. Head over to the barn and watch the scene, after which you'll be attacked by outlaws coming from the ranch house. Use cover, advance patiently, and take them all out. Go inside and clear out all the bandits. They're all pretty easy to kill, save the very last one. The last bandit is behind a closed door with a hostage. Marshall Johnson will stand outside the door, gun drawn, but will not do anything. You can try to attack directly, but even if you try to use Dead Eye targeting, there's a good chance the outlaw will kill the hostage before you can fire, forcing the mission to end in failure. Rather, head for one of the side rooms: shoot out a window, and hop onto the roof. Circle around and shoot the outlaw in the back of his head to save the last hostage. Then go down to the shed you searched earlier to view another scene. Now it's time to hunt down the last of the bandits. Follow the Marshall south until a scene triggers--then duck behind some cover by the station, and take out the gang members as they assault your position. These outlaws will come in waves, but have to run down the cliff path, which makes them vulnerable. By now, you should be able to pick them off one by one with relative ease. "Hanging Bonnie MacFarlane" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "The Burning" Walkthrough: Speak to Marshall Johnson and Bonnie's father in the sheriff's office, then follow Johnson to Tumbleweed. When you get there, you'll need to escort Norman Deek toward the town entrance. It's a lot like herding cattle: just keep bumping into him from behind to keep him moving forward. Naturally, the whole thing is one big trap. Grab some cover and take out as many of the outlaws as you can, as quickly as you can. Eventually, a scene will trigger where Bonnie is dropped. You'll need to get to her as quickly as possible to save her. There really aren't too many outlaws inside the town, so your best bet is to equip a pistol, and just run-and-gun. When you get close to the gallows, a scene will trigger where you save bonnie (so don't bother trying to shoot down the noose). Once all of the outlaws in town are dead, untie Bonnie to end the mission. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Nigel Dickens ~ < < /__/ RDR-02D \__\ "Old Swindler Blues" Reward: Mini-Game: Liar's Dice Prerequisite Mission: "Justice In Pike's Basin" Walkthrough: You'll see Nigel's location marked on your map with a big 'ol "W." Find him, speak to him, and then hop into his cart to drive him to the doctor in Armadillo. This mission is easy: the only complication arises in the form of a few, half-hearted bandit attacks which should be fairly easy to repel. Just remember to keep the cart on the road and to avoid over-working the horses. "You Shall Not Give False Testimony, Except For Profit" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Women And Cattle" "Old Swindler Blues" Walkthrough: You'll have to wait a while after dropping Nigel off at the Doctor before you can take on his second mission. When you can, go back to the doctor and pick him up. Once again, you're playing chauffeur. Drive Nigel to Ridgewood Farm. He'll kick you out before you get there, and you'll have to walk the rest of the way. When you arrive, blend in with the crowd and approach Nigel to trigger a scene. When prompted, shoot the skull on the ranch house porch. Next, you'll have to shoot a hat thrown into the air: do so with Dead Eye targeting. Once you've completed those trials, one of the local brutes will challenge you to a fight: beat him up. Later, he'll draw his gun: use Dead Eye targeting again to blast the weapon out of his hands to end the mission. "Liars, Cheats And Other Proud Americans" Reward: +$3 +200 Fame Prerequisite Mission: "Exhuming And Other Fine Hobbies" Walkthrough: Another racing mission, and this one is much, much easier that the first. Hop in the passenger seat of Nigel's cart and allow him to ferry you to the race course, then hop in your chariot. Run through the checkpoints as quickly as you can, and stay on the road. The other racers are quite slow, so you should be able to claim first place with a wide lead before you've completed even a tenth of the circuit. Once you've won the race, hop back in Nigel's cart and flee the scene. You can skip these travel bits, both to and from the race, but I wouldn't recommend it, as you'd be missing out on quite a bit of dialog. "Can A Swindler Change His Spots?" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Liars, Cheats And Other Proud Americans" Walkthrough: You'll find Nigel in the southern portion of New Austin. Watch the scene, then get in Nigel's wagon (riding shotgun) to flee from the attackers. Use a rifle, if you've got the the ammo, to take out your pursuers. Eventually you'll come across a roadblock, with some handy barrels of dynamite nearby: use the dynamite to blow up the roadblock. Keep taking out all of the bad guys shooting at you, as per usual, and eventually you'll make it to the safety a small cave, ending the mission. "The Sport Of Kings And Liars" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Can A Swindler Change His Spots?" Walkthrough: Time for another race! Mount your horse and follow Nigel to the racing grounds. Watch a scene at the starting line, then it's time to run. Same as before, stay on the path, aim for the fiery waypoints, and keep your horse galloping at its fastest speed. You should be able to force your way to the lead of the pack long before reaching the finish. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Seth Briars ~ < < /__/ RDR-02E \__\ "Exhuming And Other Fine Hobbies" Reward: ??? Prerequisite Mission: "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions" "You Shall Not Give False Testimony, Except For Profit" Walkthrough: Speak with Seth in the graveyard of Coot's Chapel. Then follow him to Benedict Point. You'll need to distract the two guards. The game tells you to steal one of the deputy's horses, which will earn you a $40 bounty: instead, you can simply approach the door to the cabin, and the lawmen will draw their guns on you without provocation. Either way, once you're wanted, run away from the area and lose the wanted level. Then, head back to Benedict Point and speak to Seth again. Moses will escape, so shoot him in the leg, lasso him and hog tie him. Drag the poor sod back to Seth to view a short scene. Then you'll get a pardon letter: take it to the nearby telegraph office to get rid of your bounty--though you'd be better off paying the bounty with cash, and saving the pardon letter for a rainy day. "A Gentle Drive With Friends" Reward: +$10 +75 Fame Prerequisite Mission: "Exhuming, And Other Fine Hobbies" Walkthrough: Meet up with Seth again, and drive his wagon to Tumbleweed. You'll be attacked by treasure hunters along the way: take them out. They'll be pretty fast, and pretty close, so a pistol will work much better for you than a shotgun.

These encounters offer side-missions, peripheral to the main story of the game, and help to inject a lot of humor, suspense and interest to the game. The tasks you'll be asked to complete for the stranger missions may at times be difficult, but are always very straightforward. As such, I have decided not to include any walk-throughs for these quests, as I think it better to leave you scratching your head for thirty seconds (tops, I promise) than to spoil anything. Believe me: many of these quests are quite entertaining. Here you will find the titles of all the Stranger quests, where to go to initiate each quest, and minor notes that may prove helpful when you work to complete the quest. Stranger tasks will frequently present you with choices, which can dramatically effect your fame and honor stats. NOTE: sometimes you will not immediately be told where to go to continue a stranger's quest: in such cases, simply wait.

Check the train station for a wanted poster, examine it if you like, and take it to accept the bounty. Once you've accepted a bounty, a red skull will appear on your map, indicating the bounty's position. Bounties are typically defended by a number of fellow outlaws, and the red skull makes it easier to determine which enemies are safe to kill, and which one to be careful of. Once you find your bounty and eliminate his defenders, you can either kill him for a lesser reward, or try to take him alive for a greater reward. To capture a bounty alive, you'll need to have the Lasso. Disable the bounty (by either killing his horse while he is mounted, or shooting him in the leg) and lasso him. Keep the bounty tethered and approach: you will be able to hog-tie the bounty. When a bounty is hog-tied, you need to sling him onto your horse and take him into town. Be careful: outlaws will attack you on the way back, in an effort to save their comrade. They will not follow too close to town, so be fast, and keep a steady aim. All of the bounty targets, along with the pertinent data, is listed below.

These range from jobs--simple mini-games you can play to earn money--to random events, which are random encounters in the game world. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Jobs ~ < < /__/ RDR-07A \__\ Jobs are simple tasks, or mini-games, that you can repeat any number of times to earn money. There are only two different jobs to choose from, found in a total of five locations. In order to earn 100% game completion, you will need to complete each of the jobs in each area at least once. Horsebreaking (Chuparosa) Horsebreaking (Ridgewood Farm) Night Watch (Blackwater) Night Watch (Chuparosa) Night Watch (MacFarlane Rang) Horsebreaking involves taming a wild steed and then riding the horse into a barn. Night Watch involves patrolling the grounds and dealing with any trouble you might encounter--from horse thieves and bandits to foxes getting in the chicken coop. You cannot begin Horsebreaking jobs until you have completed the mission, "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions." You cannot complete Night Watch jobs until you have completed the mission, "New Friends, Old Problems." JOB TIPS Horsebreaking First you'll need to lasso the horse. Once you've got it, keep holding down L2/LT to keep the beast tethered. Once you get close enough, you'll be able to mount the equine. The trick now is to maintain your balance while the bronco bucks wildly back and forth. Just keep an eye on your position on top of the horse, and use the left analog stick to keep yourself level. Night Watch Very easy: stay close to the dog. When the dog starts barking, that means he's spotted trouble. Remember: you don't always have to kill troublemakers. Some fights can be avoiding simply by shooting into the air, drawing your weapon, or by using your lasso to restrain the disorderly element. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Random Events ~ < < /__/ RDR-07B \__\ While traveling the world, you'll often hear or see strange things. More often than not, you'll hear the sound of gunfire or screaming. If you follow those sounds, you may find a blue circle on your mini-map marking an ambient challenge. These challenges are random, recurrent, and time-sensitive. You have to be both quick and posses sound judgment to complete them. _______________________________________________________________________ | EVENT | GOAL | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Abduction |Stop the drunkard from hurting or | | |absconding with the victim | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Ambushes |Kill all of the outlaws | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Duels |Use dead-eye to kill your opponent | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Dynamite Transport |Deliver the cargo without blowing | | |yourself up | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Escort |Safely escort the client to his or her | | |destination | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Firing Squad |Save the victim from the gunmen | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Fleeing Outlaw |Kill the criminal without shooting at | | |the pursuing lawmen | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Herbalist Challenges |Collect the requisite number of plants | | |before the timer runs out | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Holdup |Defeat the bandits and save their prey | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Horse Thief |Kill the thief and return the horse to | | |its owner | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Lynching |Shoot the rope around the victim's neck| | |before he or she dies, then kill all of| | |the lynch mob | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Person attacked by wild animals|Kill the animals before the person dies| |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Sharpshooter Challenges |Kill the requisite number of targets | | |before the timer runs out | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Skinning Challenges |Skin the requisite number of animals | | |before the time runs out. | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| |Wagon Thief |Kill the thief and return the wagon to | | |its owner | |_______________________________|_______________________________________| ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Crimes & Bounties ~ < < /__/ RDR-07C \__\ When you commit a crime within sight of law enforcement, you will become a wanted man. If you commit a crime and no one is around to see you, you will not face any consequences. If, however, your crime is witnessed, you must either kill the witnesses (marked on your mini-map with a special icon) or become a wanted man. When you are a wanted man, you will be hounded by lawmen and bounty hunters. The greater the bounty, the greater your harassment. When wanted, you can either surrender to the law, attempt to evade capture, bribe lawmen (can only be done with your weapons holstered) or remove your bounty at a telegraph office, either by paying it off yourself or by using a pardon letter. _______________________________________________ | CRIME | BOUNTY | |_______________________________|_______________| |Vandalism |$1 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Assault on an animal |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Assault on livestock |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Assault to a horse |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Murder of an animal |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Property destruction |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Threatening lawmen |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Trespassing |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Vandalism to a vehicle |$5 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Property destruction (vehicle) |$10 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Robbery |$10 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Arson |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Assault |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Assault of a lawman |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Horse theft |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Kidnapping a civilian |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Murder of a horse |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Murder of livestock |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Vehicle theft |$20 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Cheating |$25 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Kidnapping a lawman |$30 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Murder |$40 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Murder of a lawman |$50 | |_______________________________|_______________| |Safe cracking |$50 | |_______________________________|_______________| Each town or settlement can only sustain a certain number of lawmen. If you kill all of that number, no new lawmen will attack you unless you begin committing new crimes. Each area's limits are as follows: Armadillo 20 Lawmen Ridgewood Farm 5 Lawmen Coots Chapel 6 Lawmen Benedict Point 6 Lawmen Rathskeller Fork 5 Lawmen MacFarlane Ranch 6 Lawmen Plainview 7 Lawmen Escalera 30 Lawmen (+10 soldiers) Las Hermanas 8 Lawmen Agave Viejo 5 Lawmen Chuparosa 20 Lawmen El Matadero 9 Lawmen (+ 5 soldiers) El Presido 0 Lawmen (+12 soldiers) Blackwater 50 Lawmen Pacific Union Railroad Camp 7 Lawmen Manzanita Post 7 Lawmen Furthermore, once your bounty reaches a certain amount, vigilante gangs will begin to target you, hoping to bring you in for your bounty. The size of these posses vary depending on the size of your bounty. Bounty >$ 150 3-4 person posse Bounty >$1700 6 person posse (+1 dog) Bounty >$3700 8 person posse (+2 dogs) Bounty >$5000 10 person posse (+3 dogs) Bounty >$7000 12 person posse (+4 dogs) Like lawmen, you can surrender to the posse to be captured alive by holstering your weapon and standing still. Similar to posses, you will also be targeted by bounty hunters, when your bounty reaches the same intervals. Bounty >$ 150 2 bounty hunters (+1 dog) Bounty >$1700 3 bounty hunters (+1 dog) Bounty >$3700 4 bounty hunters (+2 dogs) Bounty >$5000 5 bounty hunters (+3 dogs) Bounty >$7000 6 bounty hunters (+4 dogs) Like lawmen and posses, you can only survive encounters with bounty hunters by either bribing them, killing them all, or surrendering. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Dueling ~ < < /__/ RDR-07D \__\ "When the duel screen loads, you'll see your enemy & his name. Afterward, the camera will slowly zoom in from behind you. At a certain point, the words DRAW come out & the screen goes dead-eye mode (orange screen color). Note: This doesn't mean your enemy has drawn yet." Feeding The Meter: "The meters on the right side of the screen belong to you (blue) & your enemy (red). Whoever fills theirs more will win. When it says DRAW, use the Left Trigger or down then up on the Right Stick to bring up your cross hairs. using RB or RT, you'll "paint" your enemy with marks which fill your meter." Aim Small Miss Small: "WATCH THE CROSS HAIRS. They will flash red to white, reflecting Marston's aim... Simple phrase: Red=Dead White=Tight. Red will raise your meter a little, white will fill it 25% - 100% depending where you aim." Hard Target: "Painting certain areas will fill your meter more. 2 can fill it to %100 & end the duel immediately if you paint 'em White: His Gun or Head. Just aiming at the head won't work, though. I've found you have to aim for the upper head area (forehead or eyes) for 100%. As for the gun, plain & simple: Perfectly paint his gun white with one shot. Painting his hand can fill your meter about 75% (you'll probably still win)." Disturbing the Piece: "You get +100 Fame & gain Honor by disarming him, but not all opponents can be disarmed. These are usually story-related character & some stranger-related ones (specifically the Wronged Woman & Eva in Peril)." "A telltale sign is if you paint their guns / hands & your Meter does not rise. Even a badly painted gun / hand will raise your meter by small amounts. If this happens, make a mad dash for their foreheads!" Timing Is Everything: "You'll notice that after DRAW comes up, the camera continues to zoom in. Drawing will stop the camera. Drawing first gives you more time to paint your enemy but at the cost of a smaller target area, making it more difficult to accurately paint a specific body part. Letting them draw first gives you less time to paint him, but a bigger area to paint." Opponent behavior: "Everyone you duel is different in terms of Nerves, Speed & Accuracy. Unfortunately for experts, Rockstar didn't make them more varied (no ultimate challenge). But basically, Nerves is how SOON they draw, Speed is how FAST they draw & aim (this is the real timer for you), & Accuracy is how much their meter rises with each shot they place on you. These affect the duel: Opponents who are nervous will draw early, hampering their aim. These guys are usually easy as their meters will never be fuller than yours if you can place 1 good shot. However, if you get a nervous enemy with a fast hand, you'd better be quicker at placing that shot." Tips: "Any duel can be won by mashing the RT, but to get those badass one shots watch your opponent's draw speed. This will give you an estimation on how much time you'll have to "wait & paint". The minute he goes for his gun you'll see how fast he is. For fun, on opponents who can be disarmed, shoot his gun then his hat." "I haven't played the multiplayer extensively yet as I'm obsessed with the Single Player, so I don't know if there are Online Duels. I hear there aren't. If they ever implemented them, this system would work extremely well (I think they should speed it up, though, 'cause painting is a little too easy)." ___ ___ \ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Gang Hideouts ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-08 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ Gang hideouts are small, sequestered encampments of bandits, highwaymen and all manner of nasty individuals. These small communities are typically found in abandoned forts or towns. Raiding gang hideouts and defeating all of the members net you numerous rewards, from money and ammunition to new weapons, honor, fame and new outfits. In order to obtain 100% completion, you will need to raid every gang hideout at least once. After you've cleared out a hideout, that area will remained abandoned for a while. But, after a certain amount of time, the gang will return and you'll be able to clear out the hideout all over again. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Tumbleweed ~ < < /__/ RDR-08A \__\ Reward: Winchester Repeater Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "New Friends, Old Problems." Objectives: 1. Save the captured lawman. 2. Kill all of the outlaws in the town. 3. Kill all of the outlaws near the mansion. Walkthrough: Once you get close enough to the town, several outlaws will appear and start shooting at you. Most of them have pretty good cover, so you'll want to find something to duck behind. Keep an eye on your map so that you don't get outflanked, and take them all out. Remember: some outlaws will hide inside ruined buildings, or shoot at you from second-floor balconies. Once you've killed all of the enemies in the town, free the sheriff. Then head up to the manor. Kill the outlaws on the porch, then swing around the left side of the mansion and go down into the cellar. Kill the outlaws in the cellar, then go up the stairs into the main floor and kill the few remaining outlaws. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Twin Rocks ~ < < /__/ RDR-08B \__\ Reward: Volcanic Pistol Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "New Friends, Old Problems." Objectives: 1. Meet to rancher near Twin Rocks. 2. Defeat the Walton gang. 3. Rescue the rancher's daughter. Walkthrough: Speak to the crouching Rancher to begin the mission. Remember to use cover, to be patient, and to watch out for gunmen firing at you from the rooftop of the house. When you find the rancher's daughter, use Dead Eye targeting to kill the last gang member. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Pike's Basin ~ < < /__/ RDR-08C \__\ Reward: Sawed-Off Shotgun Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "Justice In Pike's Basin." Objectives: 1. Kill the Bollard Gang members on the road to Pike's Basin. 2. Kill the Bollard Gang members inside Pike's Basin. 3. Kill the Bollard Gang members near Pike's Basin's exit. Walkthrough: Clearing this hideout plays much like the original mission where you helped Marshal Johnson clean up all the bad guys and save the ranchers, only this time you don't have a squad of lawmen to back you up--but on the plus side, the only thing you have to concern yourself with this time around is killing everything in your path. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Gaptooth Breach ~ < < /__/ RDR-08D \__\ Reward: Springfield Rifle Treasure Hunter Outfit Scrap Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "Man Is Born Unto Trouble." Objectives: 1. Save Floyd. 2. Go inside the mine and open the crate. 3. Exit the mine. Walkthrough: Pretty simple, as all of these missions are: kill everything. Watch out for enemies lurking in high places. Be patient and use cover. Or, hell, just run up guns blazing if you're with a group online. When you try to make your way out of the mine after nabbing the treasure, you'll be attacked by more enemies, so don't let your guard down until you're safely out of the mine. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Nosalida ~ < < /__/ RDR-08E \__\ Reward: Henry Repeater Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "We Shall Be Together In Paradise." Objectives: 1. Offer to help the general. 2. Burn down the targets. Walkthrough: Grab as many Fire Bottles as your inventory can old and make your way to the rebel camp. It's probably a good idea to take out as many of the rebels from as great a distance as you can, just be careful not to kill any of the Mexican Army soldiers. Your targets will appear on the mini-map as yellow circles. Use the Fire Bottles to blow 'em all up, then go back to the general to earn some money and honor. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Fort Mercer ~ < < /__/ RDR-08F \__\ Reward: Semi-Automatic Pistol Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "We Shall Be Together In Paradise" Objectives: 1. Climb over the wall. 2. Open up the fort's doors from within. 3. Kill all of the outlaws. 4. Kill the Bandito leaders. 5. Find the treasure. Walkthrough: Once you get over the wall, you'll need to take cover and kill all of the bad guys on the wall. When you can, go down to the gate and examine it to open up the fort's doors. When you work on exterminating everyone you see, keep an eye open for boxes to loot. When you've killed everyone and everything in sight, head for Fort Mercer's treasure room, marked on your map with a yellow circle. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Tesoro Azul ~ < < /__/ RDR-08G \__\ Reward: Double Action Revolver Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "The Demon Drink." Objectives: 1. Kill all of the outlaws in the town. 2. Rescue the deputy. Walkthrough: Talk to the lawman by the East entrance to Tesoro Azul to trigger this mission. Approach from the west and take out the guards. Try to kill as many outlaws as you can from ~outside~ the town before you venture inside. As per the usual, your sole goal here is carnage. As with most hostage situations, using Dead Eye targeting will make saving the deputy quite easy. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Solomon's Folly (PS3 Only) ~ < < /__/ RDR-08H \__\ Reward: N/A Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "New Friends, Old Problems." Objectives: 1. Meet the sheriff. 2. Kill off the Walton Gang members. 3. Drive the wagon back to the bank in Armadillo. Walkthrough: Speak to the sheriff, near the large boulder in Solomon's Folly. Take out all of the gang members, then ride the wagon back to Armadillo--you will be attacked by more of the Walton gang, so keep your wits about you. If either the banker or the sheriff die, you will fail this mission. Other than that, it's pretty simple, pretty fast, and pretty bloody. (You will find Solomon's Folly about half-way between For Mercer and Gaptooth Breach, due South of Gaptooth Breach). ___ ___ \ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Weapons ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-09 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ Red Dead Redemption takes place in 1911, in the American West, and has most of the weapons one would expect to find in that era, though there are a few conspicuous exceptions.

Some animals are more common in certain areas than in others, so selling animal parts in an area where an animal is rare will net more profit than selling those parts in areas where the animal is common. Included in this table is the default sales price, as well as the locations where the item can be sold for 50% more than it's original value (1.5x multiplier) or 100% more than it's original value (2x

\ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Mini-Games ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-11 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ Poker Locations: MacFarlane Ranch, Armadillo, Thieves Landing, Casa Madrugada, Chuparosa, Blackwater, Blackwater Hotel. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "This is Armadillo, USA." Tips: Should go without saying, but if you have a crappy hand, fold. If you've got a decent hand, stay in the game, but fold if the other players seem confident (make large bets). It's possible they're bluffing, but uncommon, so take a risk at your own peril. When you have a good hand, don't be too greedy. If you place too large a bet, you increase the odds that another player will fold. Make smaller bets to slowly increase the size of the pot. As for cheating... don't do it. The risks are much higher than the reward... though, I guess if you're in the hankering for a duel, you may as well let yourself get caught cheating. Blackjack Locations: Blackwater, Thieves Landing, Chuparosa, Rathskeller. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "This is Armadillo, USA." Tips: Blackjack is a pretty simple game, which relies on equal parts good judgment and luck. Just be careful, and try to get the magic number. Like poker, the more you play, the better you'll get--so I urge, simply, practice. Five Finger Fillet Locations: Manzanita Post, Armadillo, Escalera, Thieves Landing, Torquemada. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "This is Armadillo, USA." Tips: Memorize the button pattern when your opponent has his turn: when you're up, don't bother looking at the button prompts, they'll only slow you down. Be quick, and be precise. If you lose more than three times in a row, take a break. Horseshoes Locations: MacFarlane Ranch, Rathskeller Fork, Las Hermanas. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "Women and Cattle." Tips: Dear God, is this a pain in the ass. Overcomplicated an unintuitive to the extreme--the only blemish in an otherwise flawless game. But I digress. Odds are you are playing Horseshoes for one reason and one reason only--to get a ringer, and earn the requisite trophy/achievement. Good Luck! ...Yeah, I'll give you some tips. Don't worry your pretty little face about it. There are two things to keep in mind: first, you need to aim a bit to the side of the pole. Second, the time-of-release. Release the horseshoe too late, and it will sail out-of-bounds. Release too early, and it will fall limply to the ground by your feet, a clear indicator of your shriveled dignity and ability. Just keep trying and trying and trying, and one day you'll get that ringer. Probably. Liar's Dice Locations: Thieves Landing, Casa Madrugada, Escalera. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "Old Swindler Blues." Tips: Liar's Dice is a whole lot of nothing, being almost wholly reliant upon luck. The goal here is to call the bluff when you think the words are a lie. Look at your dice when it's your turn, and if you've got nothing that was said, call the bluff. It can be a pain in the ass, but it's simple, so keep at it 'till you get the hang of things. Arm Wrestling Locations: Pacific Union Railroad Camp, Plainview, El Matadero, Agave Viejo. Prerequisite: Complete the mission, "We Shall Be Together in Paradise." Tips: Keep an eye on your opponent to counter his actions. Whenever you can, recharge your strength meter. Keep it as close to filled as you can, and you'll be alright. ___ ___ \ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Online Multiplayer ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-12 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ Red Dead Redemption contains a very deep and involving multiplayer element, adding an entirely new layer to the game. Expect it to be just as utterly enthralling as the single player side of things. This section is intended to cover all of the pertinent aspects of the multiplayer game, and all the little details you may want to find out as you duke it out online. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Free Roam & PVP ~ < < /__/ RDR-12A \__\ Online multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption is split between two modes. PVP is much as you would expect--player versus player of the typical, visceral variety. Free Roam, however, is something wholly different: Free Roam grants all the players in the game unfettered access across the whole of the game world (sans mini-games), to act as they please. FREE ROAM Clearly the most interesting side of online play, Free Roam is exactly what it sounds like: you and your friends are given the freedom to go wherever you want, and do whatever you want. Anywhere on the map. Sadly, you cannot play any of the mini-games, so no online-poker. Up to 15 different players can join a Free Roam game, and you can further divide into groups, or posses, of up to 8 players. When you're in a posse, you'll be able to instantly-travel to the posse's leader, which can be very, very handy in so large a world. Players can team up and fight each other, go free-for-all, or opt not to fight at all. The point, simply, is freedom. PVP When you're in a Free Roam game, you'll spot markers on the ground, indicating competitive matches--PVP play. Approach the marker to trigger a PVP match. There are a number of different PVP matches to try: shootouts, gang shootouts, hold your own matches, grab the bag matches and gold rushes. I urge you to try 'em all at least once. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Levels & Rewards ~ < < /__/ RDR-12B \__\ Each time you level up, you are presented with a new title, and possibly a reward--a weapon and/or a horse. Red Dead Redemption currently has a level cap of 50. The experience needed to reach each level in the game, as well as all of the level-dependent rewards are fully listed in the table below.

They simply confer experience and titles, and offer a distracting way to pass the time. Essentially, they're exactly like Trophies or Achievements. There are several challenges available in the single-player side of Red Dead Redemption, however most of them are found online, offering an incentive for vastly prolonged play. Please note that you cannot complete a challenge until you have access to that challenge (check the menus). So, for example, if you collect 20 desert sage plants before finishing the first level of the Survivalist challenge, you will need to pick an additional 6 desert sage in order to complete the second level of the challenge, ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Single Player Challenges ~ < < /__/ RDR-13A \__\ Treasure Hunter Challenges: _______________________________________________________________________ | LEVEL | REQUIREMENTS | |_______|_______________________________________________________________| |1 |Obtain the first treasure map by saving a man and his wagons | | |from a bandit attack.

Go to the Southern end of the Great Plains to find a group of buffalo. Use Dead Eye and paint each Buffalo with 2 bullets each and fire. This way, you can kill up to 11 Buffalo at once. ___ ___ \ \ / / > > ~ Bug List & Workarounds ~ < < /__/ RDR-17D \__\ Though a very well-crafted game, there are a number of bugs that can occur, which I have taken the liberty of listing here. If there is a way to work around a specific bug, I, too, have that workaround here mentioned. Be warned that this sub-section may contain spoilers. Random Freezing: Game will freeze at random. Solution: None. You will have to do a hard-reset of your system. Free Roam Bug: Characters and objects become invisible at random. Solution: None. You can still target invisible objects with automatic targeting active. Free Roam Bug: Character becomes stuck in place while planting explosives in Pike's Basin. Solution: None. You will have to either die or quit the game. FFA Bug: Trying to use cover in a free-for-all match causes you to fly up into the air, and then fall to your death. Solution: None. Single Player Bug: During the attack on Fort Mercer, the sequence after using the Gatling gun will not load, effectively breaking the main story. Solution: None. You will have to quit the game without saving to proceed. Single Player Bug: Story missions will not load. The game will not be broken per se, as you'll still be able to do other things... but the story mission itself will never be playable, effectively preventing you from finishing the game. Solution: None. Bounty Bug: Moe Van Barr will not appear as a bounty. Solution: None. Some players, however, have reported that Moe Van Barr will only appear as a bounty if you shoot and kill the outlaw in the first mission with Marshall Leigh Johnson. Poker Bug: Opponent textures temporarily disappear. Solution: None. Money Loss Bug: Character money will be reduced to $0 when re-spawning or upon the completion of a mission. Solution: None. This bug only seems to occur during respawning, or the completion of one of Reyes' missions. Terrain Bugs: Numerous bugs involving the player character, or other in-game objects falling "under" the terrain. Solution: None. ___ ___ \ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Frequently Asked Questions ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-18 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ Q: How is Red Dead Redemption any different than "Grand Theft Auto in the West?" A: For starters, Rockstar has a very different work ethic and standard of quality than Bethesda. Joking aside, Red Dead Redemption plays similarly to Grand Theft Auto IV, to be sure, but it has an entirely different feel to it. Rockstar's sandbox style gameplay is really a far better suit for the wilderness of the West than the bustle of a city, and it shows. There are more activities to do, more places to explore, more people to interact with and--perhaps most of all--you're not forced to muck around with the scum of the Earth. Always a plus, in my book. Q: I need to kill a certain kind of animal, but I can't find it anywhere. Where should I be looking? A: Check your map. You'll see pictures of all the animals you can hunt near to the locations where those animals spawn. Keep in mind that it's possible to search through an area and not find a single one that you're looking for, only to come across a half dozen an hour later by accident. Q: What differences are there between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Red Dead Redemption? A: The Playstation 3 version of the game is technically inferior the the Xbox 360 version, displaying at a slightly lower resolution and utlilizing cruder anti-aliasing techniques. The PS3 version does, however, include content not found on the 360 version--special challenges, outfits, and a hideout, Solomon's Folly. Both versions of the game look and play very, very similar to one another, so much so that unless you know precisely what to look for, odds are you'd think them identical. Q: Where do I find _____ animals? Look at your goddamn map. See those pictures of animals? Look there. Now, what you should NOT do is get off your horse and sit on your ass by those markers, simply waiting for your prey to come to you. You're HUNTING, remember? So look around. Also keep in mind that different animals are more or less common at different times of the day. Keep in mind that many of the animals can be found all over the place--particularly vermin. I said at the begining of the guide that this wasn't intended to "hold your hand" as you play through the game. Telling you where to find armadillos (the entire southern portion of the whole bleeing map, for instance) counts as hand-holding. Q: Where's my horse? I can't find it anywhere! A: Your horse is dead. Or stuck on terrain. If a blue icon appears when you whistle, that's your horse--if he doesn't run to you, he's stuck, so you'll need to go to him. If no icon appears, you horse is dead. If you have a dead horse, either examine your horse deed to spawn another, or steal a horse (tether it if you want to "own" it permanently). Q: How do you requisition the services of a 'woman of the night?' A: You cannot. Q: How do you seduce cattle? A: Please stop emailing me. Q: What is the "nudity and strong sexual content" mentioned on the ESRB label, and what does it entail? A: There are generally two different people asking this question: the horny prepubescent looking for some mild stimulation, and the adult/parent wondering whether or not a game is suitable for children of a certan age. To the minors, I will say that RDR will not fulfill your needs. There are only new instances of nudity in game--rear nudity of a corpse and a single (blatantly gratuitous) sex scene near the middle of the game. To the adults, I I will say that the sexual content in RDR is very, very minor. Neither of the two scenes I previously described would be effected by the censors of American television, which already has more constraints heaped upon it than British or Japanese television. To compare it to a movie's rating, think of it as PG-13. Furthermore, to the parents, I will will say this: one day, I imagine you hope to see grandchildren, right? So you accept that one day your kids will have sex. So why be so paranoid at hiding/withholding media with sexual content? Conversely, I imagine that, no matter the circumstance, you don't want to see your child ever become a brutal murderer. Does it not stand to reason, then, that your primary concern should be the level of violence, not sexual content? I say so because there seems to be a great deal of hypocrisy here, particularly among parents hailing from American shores. And regardless of your stance on violence and/or sex in gaming, I should hope that you apply the same measure of diligence and censorship to your child's games that you also apply to his or her television habits, and the books that he or she reads. Q: Why did my horse die? A: Because you shot it. Or someone else shot it. Or it was mauled by a cougar. Any number of things, really--just because you didn't see anything does not mean there was nothing ~to~ see. Q: Some guys were shooting at me, but when I shot them I got a wanted level. Why? A: Odds are they weren't shooting at you at all. Odds are they were lawmen chasing a criminal, whom you did not see. When you see people shooting at each other, without seeing any red enemy icons on the map, that means they are NOT attacking you. If you want to get involved, look around to see which gunmen are wearing badges before you open fire. Q: Why isn't this FAQ finished yet? A: Hah! Joke's on you--it is finished! (yeah, I know it'd be easier to just delete this question, but it's my FAQ and I don't wanna). Q: Would you accept help with this Guide? A: Almost certainly. If you can contribute something (several people have already done so) simply e-mail me. Anything, no matter so small, is fine. So long as it's not information I already have, I'll be more than glad to use your information and credit you accordingly. Q: I've noticed that several people have contributed information to this guide. What happens if two people submit the same information? A: In that case I would (and already have) credit both people. I typically update the FAQ every week, and so long as you're sending me something that's not in the FAQ currently posted on GameFAQs, provided I haven't ascertained the information on my own, I will credit you. If ten people people email me to say X number should be Y, I credit all ten people. Q: What should I do if I'm unable to find out what I want in your guide? A: You may either email me (mwulf.0079@gmail.com) or ask on the Red Dead Redemption BBS (PS3 side) at GameFAQs.com. Q: Why didn't you respond to my email? A: There are two possible reasons. First, it's possible that your email was caught in my spam filter. I generally scan through my spam folder before purging it, but it's entirely possible I deleted a “real” email by accident. It's also very possible that I HAVE responded to your email, and you simply haven't received the reply yet. Email isn't always instantaneous, ya' know. I read every email I see and always reply (if necessary). Before re-sending an email, or emailing me again to ask me whether or not I revived your first email, please... wait a day or two. I also make it a habit not to reply to any emails that are unintelligible, rude, or asking for information that is clearly within the FAQ. ___ ___ \ \ ___ ___ / / \ \ \ \ / / / / > > > > ~ Update Log ~ < < < < / / /__/ RDR-19 \__\ \ \ /__/ \__\ May 2010 (v.0.05) -Basic FAQ construction complete.
