Lurking
Default Red Dead Redemption Tips, Tricks and Fun Things To Do

After playing for the better part of a day, I have learned the following:

  • Water is poison to everyone
  • Horses DO NOT stop on a dime, especially near cliffs
  • Cougars are the ninjas of the Old West
  • Apparently, it is acceptable behavior to push/kick people in the water to their doom
  • People don't seem to mind if you hog tie their neighbors and ride off into the sunset with them
  • People don't seem to mind if, instead of riding off into the sunset with their neighbors, you drop them into the water
  • Sometimes while doing that you accidentally get stuck on the body and fall in instead of your victim
  • Tear up your PETA membership card. Kill and skin every animal you see to sell for cash...that includes horses.
  • The horseshoes minigame is HARD but there is an achievement/trophy for getting ringer
  • Texas Hold 'em is in the game but Texas isn't. (its called New Austin instead....I guess New Austin Hold 'em didn't have the same ring?)

Yeah that horse shoes game is bloody hard.
And you're spot on with the cougars comment, they ambush you everywhere until you need them for the hunting challenge and then you can't find them.
Hey Arep how did you go trying out the 5 finger game with the dagger, buggered if I can do any good on it.

I got a few rounds in on the Five Fingered Fillet. Took me a round to figure it out after stabbing my hand repeatedly. Does anyone know if there ss there an end to these minigames where we get some bonus for completing them or are they just for fun/money?


Oh, another bit of advice....riding through the wilderness, if you should come upon someone running away from some people, don't make any rash decisions. Took me a few -100 honor penalties to figure out that its usually the cops chasing someone down instead of someone who needs to be saved. Unless you are into that kind of thing, that is...

Think only the horse shoe, liars dice and poker mini games grant achievements, the rest are mainly for cash. Not that I've had a shortage of cash in game and I'm up to the mexican area.

One good bit of advice is loot every corpse, I've found new weapons on the bodies.

And watch out for an old codger calling you over to a campfire for a chat - he's probably a cannibal.
