-Estimated trophy difficulty: 7/10 -Overall number of trophies: 49 -Offline: 39 (29 8 2) -Online: 9(5 4 ) -Approx time to Platinum: 60+ -Minimum number of playthroughs: 1 -Missable trophies: Spurred To Victory -Do cheat codes disable trophies?: Yes, They disable saving the game and all trophies
Step 1: Complete the Story
You're going to want to tackle the single player story aspect of the game first. The story will take you roughly 15-20 hours to complete and you will get some trophies out of it. Do the missions when they come up and every couple missions you'll get some trophies. You will probably get most of the miscellaneous trophies by the time you're done this section also. The only thing you need to make sure you do is get the trophy Spurred To Victory as it is a missable trophy and must be gotten before you complete the game. By the end of this section you should have the every story trophy, High Roller and Spurred To Victory
Step 2: Offline Extra Trophies
After the story is over the world is yours to play around in making it the perfect time for you to finish off the offline trophies. There are no missable trophies in this section so just go at your own pace and do what you want. I suggest you get the Friends in High Places and Heading South on a White Bronco trophies out of the way first. Do them at the same time to make your life easier. Get your 500 kills with a rifle and 500 kills with a pistol trophy offline and save the mounted guns for later when you go for the online trophies. Most of your trophies will come from this step. Don't try to get your offline 100% in this section just worry about the offline trophies. By the end of this step you should have all the offline trophies except for Redeemed.
Step 3: Redeemed
Yup this trophy is so big it deserves its own section. Continue to read on in the trophy guide to see the requirements for the trophy. This trophy is going to take a while to get everything but if you go at it piece by piece it isn't too bad. At the end of this section you should have the Redeemed trophy.
Step 4: Multiplayer
Now that you're done with the single player aspect of the game it's time to move on to the online portion. First you will want to go for the trophies The Quick and Everyone Else... and Go Team!. You will be a lower level and therefore you will have easier competition. After that you will want to get the Mowing Them Down trophy as it is much easier to get online. Next you should get the Posse Up! and ask for them to protect you while you go for Most Wanted. Finish off the last couple multiplayer extra trophies and then you should have one trophy left, that being How the West was Won. It's the trophy that requires the most grinding but it will come in time. At the end of this section you should have every multiplayer trophy and your platinum.

Undead Nightmare DLC:
-Estimated trophy difficulty: 5/10 -Offline (breakdown): (9, 1) -Online (breakdown): (2 ) -Approximate amount of time to 100%: 8-12 hours boosting, 12+ hours without boosting -Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 -Number of missable trophies: 0 -Glitched trophies: No -Does difficulty affect trophies? Can't change difficulty -Do cheat codes disable trophies? Yes
Step 1: Finishing the game while doing the side quests.
Just finish all the side quests before doing your last mission in the game in order to get the best of your game experience. Along the way you may find Horses of the Apocalypse (the more you break, the better), people being attacked on the road (help them in order to get a treasure map that will help in the next step, after you get the map there is no need to bother if you don't want) and mystic creatures (do what you need to do). Important: As soon as you finish the story line and all the side quests, go from city to city in order to cleanse them all from the hordes of undead and get the Spinning Plates trophy.
PS. You will get Six years in the making while doing the side-quests.
Step 2: Challenges.
Now that you've finished the storyline and the side-quests, you should worry about the 5 challenges. They are: Undead Hunter, Undead Treasure Hunter, Undead Sharpshooter and Four Horses of the Apocalypse. See trophy Mad Marston: The Trail Warrior for more info about the trophy.
PS. You will get Chupathingy while doing the Challenges. As soon as you get the last mentioned trophy, go to the location listed in Fan Service part of the guide in order to break the unicorn and get the trophy for doing so.
Step 3: 100% Cleaning
Now you should just need to complete all the Lost Souls missions (Fort Mercer and El Presidio) and get all the outfits if you have been following the Roadmap (if not, then just check out Zed's Dead, Baby on the trophy guide).
Step 4: Online Trophies
Now that you're done with the Singleplayer, the last thing you need for your Undead Nightmare Platinum (kidding, you just get a 100%) are the multiplayer trophies. One of them is very easy after you get some friends (Smoke that Skinwagon), or boosting partners for Kingpin. Check the trophy guide and the boosting thread for more information about those two trophies.

There's a mission in the story called "Lucky in Love" where you play a game of poker. The buy in is big enough so that if you go all in and someone calls you the pot will be big enough to get the trophy. I highly recommend you attempt to get the trophy here. If you lose then you can always restart the mission. You need to go all in in the very beginning. You have 2 hands to get it so go all in both times. Normally they will call the second hand. Then just hope you get lucky. Below is a video of how it's done. Thanks leadexample for the video:
The point of the game is to take your opponent's die by calling a bluff or making them incorrectly call you on a bluff. Liar's Dice can be found in many saloons throughout the game but the first one where you can play it is in Theif's Landing.
Go in the saloon and play the game. Try to go in and play when there's only one other player at the table. This will make it easier for you as you won't need to eliminate as many opponents. Bet the lowest amount you can bet as it will make the skill level of the other player significantly lower. There isn't much of a strategy you can go by to play this game as this game has a lot of luck involved. You need to guess how many of a certain number die is on the table total, not just what you think he has. Once you guess he can either call you out on a bluff or he could believe you. If he calls you out and you are in fact bluffing you lose a one of your die so don't make outrageous guesses. You can play at safe and guess smaller numbers as it will increase your chances of getting a correct guess. Don't call him out on a bluff on smaller numbers only numbers that you know seem hard to get such as 4 5's or something along those lines. As the game winds down and he loses more die it will be easier for you. Keep trying and in a few games you should have the trophy. Below of a video showing how it should be done. Thanks leadexample for the video
This is another trophy that requires some luck and patience. Horseshoes can be found in towns and small settlements throughout the world but the easiest one to get to is the one on the MacFarlane Farm. The Horseshoe pit will be located behind your house on the farm. Bet the lowest amount you can so that it will be easier for you. Use to zoom in and make sure that your middle finger is lined up exactly on the post. Now is where you will need a little luck. Move the so that you can get power behind your throw. Move it all the way down and quickly move the back up. Release the horseshoe at the middle line. If you timed it all right and you aimed correctly you should at least hit the post. Continue using this method until you get your ringer. Below is a video showing the strategy to get the trophy. Thanks to RoosterTeeth for the video.
Complete Fort Mercer and Nosalida Hideouts in Single Player.
For these hideout trophies you need to take down each hideout in Single Player. Online will not count for these trophies. The hideouts are heavily fortified areas that are filled to the brim with bandits trying to defend their turf. Each hideout is different but the same type of directions apply. You will need to take out all of the bandits and some other secondary objective unique to each hideout. Below is the requirements for the hideouts as well as a map.
Fort Mercer Hideout:
Requirement: We Shall Be Together in Paradise
Requirement: We Shall Be Together in Paradise
Tesoro Azul Hideout:

There are 7 total saloons throughout the world. You will need to have West Elizabeth unlocked to get this trophy as the final saloon is located there. Once you enter a saloon make sure you have your fists out by checking your weapon radial, then punch someone in the saloon by locking on with and punching with . Block his punches with and quickly counter him with punches of your own. After you land a combo of punches try to tackle him to the ground by pushing . This will make it easier as you get to take free hits on him. Continue to punch him until he's knocked out. Be ready for a fight though as the people in the saloon won't like your behavior. I suggest you get out of the saloon as quick as possible and ride away. The locations as well as a map for the saloons are below:
2. RathSkeller Fork
3. Theive's Landing Nuevo Paraiso
6. Casa Madrugada West Elizabeth

Break the Kentucky Saddler, the American Standardbred, and the Hungarian Half-bred.
The only hard part about this trophy is finding the horses. The horses are always in the same general area but they made sometimes be hard to see or not even out at all depending on the time of day. If you look on your map there will also be a horse icon around the same area. If you ride around the following aread however you will eventually see the horses.
Kentucky Saddler - McFarlane's Ranch in New Austin. The horse is a brown, black, or chestnut, often with white face and leg markings.
American Standerdbred - Beecher's Hope in West Elizabeth. The horse is all black so I suggest you avoid trying to find it at night.
Hungarian Half-Bred - Between Escalera and Punta Orugullo in Mexico. The horse is all white except for its face which is black.
Before you attempt to get this trophy you will need two things. The ability to capture bounties and a lasso. You will get the ability to capture bounties after the mission "Political Realities in Armadillo." You will unlock the lasso after the mission "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions." With these two requirements met you will be ready to get this trophy.
In every major town and some small settlements you will find bounties. These are represented by the skull on your mini map. Go to the marker and read the wanted poster. Once you accept the bounty red markers will appear on your map that will take you directly to the criminal you are trying to capture. I suggest you shoot the bounties fellow outlaws first to make it easier on yourself. Now it should be you, your horse and the target. You can either shoot the target in the leg to stun him while you hogtie him or you could simply lasso him. To hogtie him get near him when he's either on the ground or he's already in your lasso and push . Once he's hogtied pick him up and place him on the back of your horse. Then ride to the nearest jail and put him behind bars. Your trophy will appear soon after. Below is a video of what it should look like. Thanks leadexample for the video.
Bears are found in the area called Tall Trees. This area is in West Elizabeth so you will need to have that area unlocked to get this trophy. Bears are a dangerous foe and not to mention a pain in the butt to find. When you do find a bear however simply shoot it until it dies. I suggest either being on your horse and moving constantly or using Dead Eye as bears will bring down your health to blinking red in one hit. Once the bear is dead skin it by going up to it and pushing . Repeat this 17 more times and you will net yourself a trophy.
The Elegant Suit can be purchased at Theive's Landing. The tailor you buy it from is only open during the day so if it's late in the evening you can either wait it out or go rest up as it advances time by 6 hours. The suit will cost you about $70.
You can earn money a number of different ways in Red Dead Redemption. The easiest by far however is Five Finger Fillet. To play the game go to a town and go to the hand icon on your map. If you have quick reflexes this should be no problem. Keep putting the bet as high as it can go and you will win practically every time. The patterns don't change once you reach the max bet of $100 so memorization will help a lot. If you memorize the $100 pattern and you have quick reflexes you should be able to make $10,000 in a couple of minutes.
Obtain Legendary rank in any Single Player Ambient Challenge.
The ambient challenges can be viewed in your journal. Go into your journal on the start screen and then click on challenges. There are 10 levels to each challenge. Complete any challenge all the way up to level 10 and you will get the trophy. Below I have a link to a challenge guide that I made also a list of challenges are as follows:
First off you need to change your targeting settings to expert. To do this press and go to options. From options go to config and from there change your targeting settings to expert. Now just get a headshot on an enemy whatever way possible. The easiest way would be to use Dead Eye but you don't have to. This is one of the easiest trophies in the game.
You get Fame and Honor in just about everything you do. It goes up when missions are completed and when side missions are completed. Your Fame will can only go up so it doesn't matter if you choose the good way or bad way your Fame rank will go up. Your Honor rank on the other hand is effected by your decisions. Missions will bring this rank up or down depending on the way you went about the mission. For instance if someone asks you to get them a deed to a house you will have two choices. Pay for it or take it. If you pay for it your Honor rank will go up and if you take it it will go down. Be consistent with your choices and you will get this trophy in no time. If you switch between good and bad then you will need to do a few extra side missions to get your Honor rank to where it needs to be.
This is a relatively easy trophy. You get a medal awarded to you after each mission that's based off of your performance during the mission. For combat missions it takes into account the amount of time it took you, the amount of head shots you had and your accuracy. For this trophy I suggest you put your targeting skill at casual. To do this go to Options, then Config and then it's the first one. You can do this on any combat mission so go to Stats, Missions and then pick the mission you would like to do. You can tell it's a combat mission because it will say your best accuracy, head shots and time on the mission.
There are a total of 94 locations throught the world. You can eitehr travel to the locations yourself you you can buy maps at stores in the area. Maps are cheap and they are an easy way to uncover the locations. They also don't require you to travel to each location. However if you want to rid to each place to uncover it yourself below will be a map showing you exactly where all of them are. Below is a link to a map of every location in the game.
You can get pardon letters from multiple places throughout the game. Everytime you defeat a gang hideout you get a pardon letter from the local sheriff. You can also get them through numerous amounts of story missions throughout the game. The bounty is the hard part to get. $5000 is a lot of bounty to rack up. I suggest go to a town like Blackwater and enter the saloon. Go upstairs and hide behind the railing and rain down lead on everyone in sight. This should get your bounty up fast. People will continue to come to try and kill you but you should be safe. Get a few medicine packs before trying this. If people stop coming get on your horse and do this in the next town you see. Keep doing this until you get a bounty of $5000. Once you get the bounty ride your horse to the telemarketing stations. They are represented by telephone poles on your mini map. Once there talk to the man behind the desk to pay off your bounty. Make sure to use your pardon letter and you will get the trophy. Below is a video showing a good strategy to get the $5000 bounty. Thanks leadexample for the video.
You can check your progress in the stats menu or if you're signed up to the RockStar Social Club then you can check it there. The following are what is needed to complete the game 100%. Thanks to tima_13 with helping complete the list.

Finish all 18 strangers' tasks
- see People are still Strange
You need to get 500 kills with mounted weapon such as the Gatling Gun or Cannon in online or offline. The trophies are not cumulative so you will need to get the trophy you will need to have either 500 offline or 500 online not 500 between them. The best place for this is El Presidio in Mexico. On your map to the left of the words El Presidio you will see a cannon icon. Go there. It's a jail but it's more like a fortress with the amount of cannons on it. When you get there get in trouble with the law in some way and have the lawmen come after you. Get on one of the cannons that overlook the main roads into the fort and shoot any that come to you. Once you get your 500th kill with a mounted weapon you will receive the trophy.
Kill 500 enemies with any pistol or revolver in any game mode.
This one is pretty self explanatory. Any pistols or revolvers in the game count towards this trophy. Both offline and online kills count towards the trophy but they are not cumulative. All 500 must be earned either online or offline. I suggest you get them offline as you should have most of the kills by the end of the game if not all of them. If you still need some then go to the bandit hideouts and clear them out a couple of times to get the kills you need. I wouldn't worry about this trophy until you've completed the game because you should have most if not all of the kills by then.
Kill 500 enemies with any rifle, repeater, or shotgun in any game mode.
This is just like the last one just with a different weapon type. Any rifles, repeaters or shotguns in the game count towards this trophy. Both offline or online kills count towards the trophy because remember they aren't cumulative. I wouldn't worry about this trophy until you've completed the game because you should have most if not all of the kills by then.
This trophy will come with time. You will have a lot of headshots by the time you complete the game so I wouldn't even worry about this trophy until after you complete the story. If you do not have it by the end you can replay missions to get more headshots. Getting headshots online also counts towards the trophy though I think it's harder to get them that way. You can check your progress towards this trophy in the stats screen. Accumulate 250 headshots and you will get the trophy.
The following are the species of animal you can find in the game. You will need to kill each animal in the game. You don't need to skin or take the feathers of all the animals killing them is good enough. Not all of the animals are needed for the trophy however; the ones needed are listed below.
Join a Public Free Roam game and take a look on the map. The Hideouts are marked as bandit heads on your map. You will need to beat all of the Hideouts in one sitting in the same Free Roam lobby. You can do them by yourself or with your posse it doesn't matter as long as they are completed. Once you've beaten your last Hideout the trophy will unlock.
Join a multiplayer Free Roam session and get the people in the session to help you with hideouts. Hideouts are located on the map with a bandit head. You get an assist by weakening a bandit and having someone else kill him with the next shot. Shoot at bandits but leave one shot left on them so that your buddies can finish off the kill and get you assists. Get 10 in one hideout and you will get the trophy. The link below is a link to the boosting thread so you can get the trophy easier with people from this site.
This trophy isn't hard but it will take a couple minutes of riding to get. Wait until sunrise and make sure you're in Blackwater. From there hop on your horse and go to your map so you can set a waypoint to Escalera. Once it's set simply follow the road it takes you on. Use your horses stamina, don't take it as a leisurely ride. If you try to move fast you will make it with time to spare.
Join a multiplayer Free Roam session and invite the people there into your posse. To invite them push and the to go the the players screen. Then hover over their names and click invite to posse. The posse must consist of 8 members including yourself. They need to be in the same session because when someone leaves the session they leave your posse also. You should enter the room and invite everyone. Wait a minute or 2 until some of the people accept your invite. Then join a new Free Roam room and your posse will come also. Then invite everyone you can in that room. Wait for a few more people to enter your posse and continue to repeat the process until you get 8 people in your posse. Thanks to Mastodon for finding that method. Once you get 8 people the trophy will unlock. Below is the trophy boosting thread to help you.
The first thing you need to do is join a Free for All game. To do this go into the multiplayer menu and go into "join public session." From there push and go down to Free for All. Enter the game and win three times in a row.
There are two different game types in FFA and they are Gold Rush and Shootout
Gold Rush - In this game type you will need to capture bags of gold and bring them to chests scattered throughout the map. Kills don't matter in this game type so try to focus on the gold and not kills. God for the gold closest to you as soon as you spawn. You want to get the lead early. To pick up a bag press when overtop of it. When the bag is in your hand run it to the nearest chest to you. When you have a bag in your hand the chests will be an orange dot on your map. You can pick up multiple bags at one time but remember you are more vunerable as you run slower. Get the most bags by the end of the game and you will win.
Shootout - This is your standard FFA Deathmatch. The key to this game is knowing where the weapon spawns are. It's doesn't matter if you are an amazing shooter, if you are out gunned you will most likely die. Pistols are better if you have a quick trigger finger as you can kill a person in about a round depending on the pistol. If your trigger finger isn't so great use a longer range, more accurate rifle and try to go for headshots either way will net you a lot of kills. Have the most kills by the end of the game and you will win.
The mode "Standoff" does NOT count towards the trophy.
The highest level is 50. The total amount of XP required to reach level 50 is 337,110. This experience can be gotten in any multiplayer game mode so play the one that is best for you. The fastest one however by far is the gang hideout Solomon's Folly. You can get around 2,000 XP every 2 minutes if you do it by yourself making it a really good place to grind for XP.
To start this trophy enter a public multiplayer lobby. Then press and go down to the Gang Matches section. Here you will need to win four straight matches. This can be tough considering not only you need to do good but your team does also. The following are the game types that you will play.
Gang Shootout - This is your Team Deathmatch style game. The team that stays together will win the match. A group of three guys can take down an enemy in seconds so if you have your team stay together and use teamwork you will win with ease. The team with the most kills by the end of the game wins.
Hold Your Own - It's a Capture the Flag style game. Each team has a side and a bag of gold. your goal is to steal the gold from your opponent and bring it back to your side. Have you ever heard that saying "offense is the best defense?" Yea well use that concept here. The bases are not far apart on any map so you need to run across the battlefield with your team and take the bag of gold as a group. There's a good chance that there's going to be at least one guy waiting back protecting the bag. He should be no match for your team if you're together. The team with the most bag captures at the end wins.
Grab the Bag - It's like Hold Your Own except this time there's one bag and it's placed in the middle of the map. This game type is all out chaos. Since the bag is the only thing you need to grab it's a constant fight over control of the bag spawning area. Once again teamwork really works in this game so use it to your advantage. The team with the most bag captures by the end of the game wins.
First join an online Free Roam session. Second go around kill law enforcers and innocent civilians until you've accumulated $1000 in bounty at which point you become a Public Enemy. The other players in the session will be notified that you are now a Public Enemy and they can come after you. You must survive for 10 minutes and then escape. I suggest you boost this trophy or otherwise you will need to get lucky and hope the players in the session don't come after you. The following link is a link the the boosting thread to ask for help from people from this site.
This is a viral trophy meaning that if you kill someone that has this trophy you will get the trophy yourself. Eventually the trophy will be so common that anyone you kill will give you the trophy. Continue to kill people online and hope you get lucky.
Though it's not an actual story mission it is a mission that is unlocked after the games completion. Go to Blackwater and by the train station is a stranger. Talk to him and finish the mission and you will get the trophy.
The buffalo are located just west of Blackwater on the Great Plains. Ride around and kill all of the buffalo in the area. There is a total of 20 buffalo you need to kill to get the trophy. Once you've killed all 20 buffalo you will have earned the trophy.
We've all seen the movies where an bandit ties up a damsel in distress and puts her on the train tracks to meet her death. Well instead of you being the hero you're going to be that villain. The only requirement is that you have the lasso. Once you have that go into a town and lasso a woman by locking onto her with and lassoing her with . Once you have her go hold onto the rope and go near her. Press to hogtie her. Put her on the back of your horse and ride to train tracks. Look on your map for the closest ones. Once you've found some take the woman off your horse and carry her onto the train tracks. Place her down on them and then just wait. It shouldn't be too long until a train comes and once it does simply watch it hit her and a trophy is yours. The following is a video of how it's done. Thanks XCVii007r1 for the video.
You're going to want to get this trophy out of the way early to avoid having to start a new game as this trophy is missable. This trophy isn't hard it just takes patience. You need to keep the same horse for the 20 missions. This means that you can't go out in the wild, catch a better horse and hitch it to your safe house so you can keep it. That along with things like your horse dieing will reset the trophy. Just make sure your horse isn't in danger of being shot during battles and other precautions like that and you will get this trophy around mission 20. There is a mission early on in the story where you get a new horse and are forced to keep it but don't worry as that doesn't reset the trophy.
You will need the horse before you can even try for this trophy. The horse can be found between Escalera and Punta Orugullo in Mexico. There are horse icons on the map and that's where they will be. They stick out as they are all white or light grey with black noses. Once you have the horse ride to a nearby town and start to cause chaos. You will need to work up enough bounty so that not only are the sheriffs after you but the US Marshals are after you also. The magic number is about 1500. You need $1500 bounty on your head so get that in Blackwater. Once you have the bounty sleep as if you were saving but you don't actually need to save. Once you awake you will get a message saying that the US Marshall is after you. Go back into Blackwater and kill a few more people until they arrive. Then you can either escape on your horse or kill them. If you decide to kill them make sure you're on your horse. Once you escape US Marshals you will get the trophy. I suggest you try to get $5000 bounty so that you can get this and the Friends in High Places at the same time.
This one is easy enough, simply go to the online portion of the game and go to the game mode titled "Co-Op Missions." It will take you in the mission select lobby. Once you and your posse complete the mission you've chosen you will get the trophy. You can complete any mission and you can get any type of medal as long as you fully complete the mission.
There are a total of 6 Co-Op missions for you to complete. Join a Co-Op mission lobby and go through each and every mission with either the people in the lobby or with some of your friends. Time or medal type doesn't matter for this trophy as long as you complete all of the missions you'll get the trophy.
Do just as it says. In these Co-Op missions you can have up to 4 people total in the lobby at a time. Just be sure to have only you and one other person in the lobby to get the trophy. For this trophy you cannot kick someone at the end of the mission for it to count. You must start and finish the mission with only one other person with you. If you start a mission with only 2 people most of the time another player won't get put into your mission so you don't need to worry about that.
Gold medals are based solely on the total score you team has at the end of a mission. Killing enemies and chaining kills together is your biggest source of score so whenever a red dot appears on the map make sure you kill him. Time isn't much of a factor at all so if you're trying to rush through the mission rather than get kills you will not be getting the gold medal for that mission.
The more people completing the mission with you the higher the score you will need to get the gold medal. If you know by the end of the mission that someone has been lagging in terms of score then you can kick him and the score will calculate as if you had the one less person rather so it may be worth it. You must gold medal all 6 Co-Op missions to get the trophy. This can be done over multiple sessions with multiple different people.
You need to complete a mission without anyone dying throughout the entire mission. It does not count as a death if you are downed. Meaning if you are downed and your teammate revives you that doesn't count as a death. To ensure that you get this trophy try to stick together in a pack rather than go in separate directions. Whenever someone is downed be sure to run over to him and revive him as soon as possible. If the timer above a players head runs out when they are downed they will die and you will not get the trophy at the end of the missions. If no-one dies by the end of any of the 6 Co-Op missions you will get the trophy.
First off to unlock the Advanced Co-Op missions you first must complete all of the normal Co-Op missions. The missions are the same as the other Co-Op missions but this time you can't use auto aim and you take a lot more damage per hit. The objectives are the same and everything else you'll just need to be more careful and use cover almost constantly. The timer when your downed also runs out much faster so be sure to save your teammates as soon as they get downed. Complete all 6 missions to unlock the trophy.
This is the hardest trophy in the new DLC. The way to get the gold medals are the same as before. Kills matter more than time but kills are harder to chain now since you need to hide a lot more and there isn't auto aim. The score requirements are also higher than before. Go through each mission taking your time to kill every enemy and you should be fine however.
Below is a thread that gives a pretty good indication of what you should shoot for in terms of score as well as giving you some good strategies on how to get those scores.
This one is a little tough because in Advanced Co-Op missions you can't auto aim and you take more damage per hit. The easiest place to get this trophy is in the missions "The Herd." Right at the start you overlook the valley filled with the cattle rustlers that are stealing cattle. This is the perfect vantage point for you to do some sniping. Use the Marksman class, aim down at the enemy camp and fire away. To get a kill chain you'll need to get kills quickly. If you wait too long between kills your chain will go away and you will need to start back at one. There aren't as many enemies in this part of the level as in other parts but you will be safe from up your vantage point at the top of the cliffside and you have a sniper so not much can go wrong.
Another good spot is at the beginning of the mission "Kidnapped Girl." Use your Marksman class and snipe at the very beginning of the mission. There is a lot of enemies hiding on top of the wall as well as down low occupying machine guns making them easy targets. If you don't get it before you explode the fort door open however another good sniping spot is right outside the main door that you just exploded. There's enough guys there to get you the trophy also. Below is a video showing the first spot I talked about. Thanks leadexample for the video.
You need at least two people including yourself to get this trophy. What you need to do is let the other player get your bag 2 times in their chest and after they get 2 bags and you are still at zero, you can go ahead and win it by getting three of their bags, after the match ends you will be rewarded with the trophy.
You need at least four people including yourself to get this trophy. Start a match with at least 4 people, whether it be a Free For All or a gang match, and kill 3 people. While in the standoff kill 3 other members before the standoff ends.
Using the standard melee knife will take a few swipes to kill someone. You don't have to do this back-to-back as long as its in one match. Gang matches are the perfect place to get throwing knives and the melee knife is also a good choice when you can't find a throwing knife.
You need at least three people including yourself to get this trophy. What you need to do it collect 2 bags of Gold while playing Gold Rush (Free For All) and drop it in the case 3 times. After you do it three times the trophy should unlock. Make sure you grab 2 bags before dropping them in the chest.
Kill 5 players via headshot in a single Shootout or Gang Shootout.
This trophy can be done on the same player over and over. This trophy has be in a Shootout or a Gang Shootout match. Just aim for the head and it will unlock after your fifth headshot kill. It doesn't have to be right after each other, just has to be in a single competitive shootout Match.
This trophy can be earn at anytime, when you pass or if you already passed into legend. This trophy is retroactive, so if you already reached level 50 and passed into legend, you will still be able to get it. As soon as you buy the DLC and pop in the game and head in to an online free roam the trophy will pop.
For "Legendary," ONLY IF YOU ARE ALREADY RANK 50 AND DO NOT WANT TO PASS INTO LEGEND: copy the Multiplayer save file to a USB flash drive, then go into MP, then go to LAN, and pass to Legend there. The trophy CAN unlock in LAN. Once you get the trophy, quit the game, and copy back your old Multiplayer save file back and you will be at level 50 again. (Thanks Yazter)
This is a stressful trophy to obtain. There are many locations to get this trophy, so its best going for this trophy with someone you have on your friends list and not just any random person. This can be done on any player. Below are four easy locations to try to get the trophy at:
1.Start off a MacFarlane's Ranch and head down to where the horses are and have one player stand in the middle while you throw the tomahawk at him/her until the trophy pops. Keep in mind you have a limited supply of Tomahawks (ten to be exact).
2. You can head to Tensoro Azul and aim for the NPC that hangs out outside the door of the hideout. Make sure you are a good distance away.
3. Just outside Blackwater. Throw it at an NPC and you should be able to obtain it that way too. (Credit: J3R3MY5)
This is just like an ambient challenge. It can be viewed in your Journal. Go into your Journal in the Start screen and then click on Challenges. There are 5 levels for the Tomahawk Challenge and you can start them by buying the Tomahawk from Manzanita Post.
1. Buy the Tomahawk from Manzanita Post. Each Tomahawk costs 10 dollars for 1 and 200 dollars for 20.
2. Kill one enemy with the Tomahawk used as a throwing weapon, one as a melee weapon and one from horseback. This doesn't have to be in any order.
Throwing Weapon: Take the Tomahawk out and throw it at anyone to complete this part of the challenge. Melee Weapon: Stand right next someone to kill that person to complete this part of the challenge. From Horseback: While on a horse throw the Tomahawk at someone to complete the challenge all together.
3. Kill a flying bird with a Tomahawk without using Deadeye.
Go to Hanging Rock, which is north of Armadillo. Go on top of any of the mountains in that area and wait for a bird to get close and then make your move, a few throws, but you will kill a bird sooner or later. It is easier to kill a flying bird during the daytime.
Note: After you have cleared a hideout you can just take out your Tomahawk and hit a vulture with it, if you learned their predictable flight pattern (Thanks to mjc0961). Try the Twin Rocks gang hideout. There aren't too many enemies there, so just take 3 minutes to clean them out and bam: a flock of vultures start circling in the air. From there you just have climb to the roof of the house in the middle and then it will be easier to tomahawk one of the vultures because of their easy to predict flight pattern.
4. Kill 5 enemies in a row "without" missing with the Tomahawk.
Try this at Solomon's Folly. The enemies are out in the open and there is more cover. Restock on Tomahawks if you are low. Solomon's Folly has exactly 5 enemies to kill at the hideout so it should be no problem.
5. Complete a gang hideout using only the Tomahawk.
If you started Challenge 4 at Solomon's Folly and finished it, complete the hideout with only using the Tomahawk to finish Challenge 5. If you miss while trying to kill an enemy while driving the wagon it's okay, JUST DON'T USE ANY OTHER WEAPON.
When you first go online, press , go to Multiplayer and then Outfitters. There will be a section that says Characters> Red Dead Revolver> and Red Harlow will be the first person. Press and it will save. Return to Free Roam and look for some Deadeye while playing a Competitive Free For All match or Free Roam, then just kill 25 players using Deadeye.
Note: NPC's do not count, you have to kill real players while playing an online Free For All/Free Roam. The kills are cumulative so you can take as long as you need. It doesn't matter what maps you are on, it just matters what character you use to get the kills with this weapon.
When you first go online, press , go to Multiplayer and then Outfitters. There will be a section that says Characters> Red Dead Revolver> Pig Josh is the fifth from the right. Same as ORIGINAL GUNSLINGER, just with Dynamite. You don't have to use Dead Eye. Look for white ammo creates while playing online to restock Dynamite.
Note: If you have the Undead Nightmare disc, you have to get Master Exploder in the Undead Nightmare campaign. So the challenges are slightly different. Thanks SylarTheNinja for the info.
This is just like an ambient challenge. It can be viewed in your Journal. Go into your Journal in the Start screen and then click on Challenges. There are 5 levels for the Explosive Rifle Challenge and you start them by buying the Rifle from Blackwater from the Gunsmith.
Explosive Rifle RANK 1
The prices for the Rifle will differ depending on what Treasure hunting Challenges you have completed and how high you Honor is. For Rank 1 buy the Rifle from the Gunsmith at Blackwater for:
Good Guy --- 5,000
Neutral --- 10,000
Bad Guy --- 15,000
Explosive Rifle RANK 2.
Kill five enemies who are covering with the Explosive Rifle. Go to Gaptooth Ridge hideout and shoot any enemies you see using cover, it doesn't have to be one after the other. You can miss three times in a row and still get the Rank up. If you are still missing some enemies the Gold Mine has more than enough people in cover.
Explosive Rifle RANK 3.
Get three kills with 1 shot with the Explosive Rifle. The best way to get this Rank is to Hogtie 3 enemies and carry them over to each other in a circle and shoot them all at once with your explosive rifle.
"Alternatively, go to Tumbleweed Hideout. Kill all bandits in the town but one. Mount your horse, kill the last bandit and hurry to the mansion. Take cover behind the stone fence, wait for the first bandit to open the door and then shoot. This is how I unlocked it." Thanks Simonp92
Explosive Rifle RANK 4.
Kill 2 wild animals with 1 shot. This is pretty easy, use some bait in the outskirts of Armadillo, head over to Tall Trees or anywhere you can find a good amount of coyotes. They usually come in packs of 5 or 6, so if you use the dead eye on those little bastards you can complete this challenge easily.
Explosive Rifle RANK 5.
Kill an enemy with the Explosive Rifle while wearing the US Army Uniform. First, obtain the US Army Uniform. You unlock the US Army Uniform by completing the mission "An Appointed Time". To earn it, complete those tasks:
Search Aurora Basin
Win at Arm Wrestling in Pacific Union Railroad Camp
Eliminate all other players in a game of Poker in Blackwater
Complete the "Lights, Camera, Action" Stranger task
Complete Nightwatch Job in Blackwater
Purchase at the tailor shop in Blackwater
Next, head to your safe house and change into the US Army Uniform. After putting on the uniform just shoot an enemy. If there is a Wanted poster nearby, grab it and go after that bandit and kill anyone that comes in your way and then the trophy will pop.
This trophy can be done in a private match with friends. You have a daily allowance of 200 dollars; if you earn more than 200 in a day, it will not reset your total back to 200.
This trophy can be a pain. The best way of getting this trophy is to start in a public match with 6 people you know, continue the game with just your posse. You don’t have to end with 6, Just start with six people.members. People tend to quit right after they lose and Rockstar knows that, so they only want you to start off with six. When you start the game and have 6 of friends at the table, 4 of them can leave and go to another room if they don't want to stay.
Also, the game tends to freeze with the maximum amount of people at the end of the poker game so that is why I advise you to start with six and have 3 0r 4 people quit, then go ahead and raise the big blinds to maximum. Getting to maximum blinds takes about 25-30 minutes and varies on where you play poker at (see list below). Thanks TheNukes & Blessorship
Macfarlanes Ranch: - $10 buy in - Big blinds max out at 64. Armadillo: -$25 buy in - Big blinds max out at 192 Theives Landing: -$25 buy in - Big blinds max out at 192 Casa Madrugada: -$50 buy in - Big blinds max out at 320 Beechers Hope: - $100 buy in - Big blinds max out at 640 Blackwater: -$100 buy in - Big blinds max out at 640
Here are the possible card combinations (from best to worse)
Royal Flush: 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of the same suit.
Straight Flush: A Straight with Ex: one 6, one 7, one 8, one 9 and one 10
Four of a Kind: Four cards with the same number. Ex: four 6’s
Full House: Combination of “Three of a Kind” and “Pair”. Ex: three 4’s and two 9’s
Flush: Five cards. Ex: Five cards with the “spades” suit.
Straight: Five cards in successively order. Ex: one 3, one 4, one 5, one 6 and one 7 or one A, one 2, one 3, one 4, and one 5
Three of a Kind: Have three cards with the same number. Ex: three 7’s.
Two Pairs: Have two pair combinations. Ex: two 9’s and two Kings.
Pair: Have two cards with the same number. Ex: two 6’s.
High Cards: No combination, the high card is your card with highest number. Ex: one Ace.
With this you should be able to understand Poker and get the trophy without losing too many chips. I recommend folding if the first four cards thrown at the table are bad and don't make a good hand. Don’t bet too high or your opponents will fold. As said it doesn't matter if the other players quit, all you have to do is start off with six.
Here is a great video on how to player Poker in Red Dead Redemption. Thanks 3TGaming.
"You have to be losing the hand at the point that there are only four cards on the table ("The Turn") and then have the fifth card change the outcome, making you the winner. As a quick example, if you had a pair of Jacks and someone else had a pair of Kings after the Turn, you would be losing (obviously). If the River is a Jack, giving you three of a kind and the win, the trophy is yours." Thanks OnuosFan.
This trophy can be easy or a pain, since you never know how the cards will come out on the table. It may take a few tries before obtaining this bad boy. What I suggest is to play a game in a public match and play as normally as you would. When the last card pops up, it’s either a miss or hit for this trophy. Keep playing and you will eventually get it. See Pa-Pa-Pa-Poker Ace for tips on how to play poker.
In a single Multiplayer Liar's Dice game, successfully make a spot-on call
Its easier to call a spot-on when there are less players at the table. This is mostly based on luck, but comes around often if you trust your instincts. I got it a few times in the two times I played. Wait until it’s your turn and when a set number of dice are called, hit to call it spot-on.
If there are two or three people at the table and it comes around to your turn and the last die to be called is three dice with face 4, it's more likely to be a spot-on if you have that same number in your hand. When someone says there is three of something, it just means there may be a minimum of three dice with a face of 6. If you see something like six dice with a face 4, it's mostly likely to be a bluff with only two or three people at the table. The trophy is based on the amount of dice on the table for you to make the best call.
If you are boosting, just ask the person you are boosting with how many of a number of the dice he/she may have and call it spot-on. The trophy will pop up a few seconds later. Please see the One Die to Rule Them All trophy for info on how to play Liars Dice and a link to the Boosting Thread.
Escalera: -$10 Buy in Casa Madrugada: -$25 Buy in Thieves’ Landing: -$100 Buy in
This is easy too and without boosting this is based on how well you play until only you and one other player are left at the table. Just play as normal and try not to lose dice until after your foe has one or two dice left. Start making wrong calls so you lose dice and get to one dice left. Then on your turn, if the other player calls your call wrong, just change it up every time to confuse the other player.
So for example, if it's your opponent's turn and he calls a die that you don't have (ex: he calls one die with face 1 and you don't have a 1), call the spot-on. If he is telling the truth, you will win and get the trophy (he can lie and the spot-on will go wrong, it's all a matter of luck).
If you plan to boost this trophy, please use the boosting thread:
This trophy can be done in a private match with friends. As stated before, there are a range of 3-5 races in various places in Red Dead Redemption; winning all 3-5 in one place will grant you this trophy. Just win the races. They can be a challenge if you don't boost, but you can just kill all that get in your way and win each race.
For boosters, form a group of two in a Private Match and let one person win each race back to back. Each Grand Prix has about 3-5 races and they are chosen at random.
Tips for races:
You have limited ammo, so use it wisely and go for headshots if possible. If you kill the other racers, you will be able to pick up their ammo if you ride over it.
Tap like mad. Hold when you are low on stamina but not for too long amd continue spamming when your stamina is back. It's harder for the other players to kill you if you are in front and are a good distance away.
Even if you are first, watch out for other players behind you, don't ride straight for too long, try to zigzag sometimes so they can't hit you.
Try not to aim at other players while in the lead as you may end up going off road and off a cliff. Just worry about what’s in front of you. Save the horse's stamina for the home stretch before the finish line.
Shoot players when you are 2nd, 3rd or 4th so you don't waste bullets for bad positions.
Use the Shotgun only if you are close to the guy and Revolver if he is a little far away. Never shoot if you are way in the back.
If you are in 1st place and are about to die, look back and kill the shooter so you stay safe (only do this with the Shotgun if you have bullets). This is easier if the other player is close by.
Touch (or almost touch) the barrel of your Shotgun in your opponent's back for a one shot kill and an amazing blood bath.
Press go to the bottom of the list of games and other things to do and head to the Grand Prix. The races range from 3-5 and are easier to do with just one other player, but if you end up with more just lose the first race and win the next. You can kill other players and pick up their weapons. There is no auto-aim, however, so it may get tough and they can shoot back. As long as you come in last the first race and place first in the race fight after the trophy will pop.
If you are in first place, try not to look back, because it will be harder to control the horse. When you are in first, it’s harder for you to get shot. Use the button wisely and whenever there is a straightaway. This is one of the easier horse racing trophies, since all you have to do is win once after placing last and if you join a public match with just one person it should be no problem. Check Triple Crown for Horse Racing tips.
As the title states, don't let the attacking team capture any of the Objectives. I would advise staying back and killing all that come to the Dock, Flag or any of the starting objectives until the mission is finished and you switch over to the attacking team (if you start out on defense).
Each Stronghold mission is about 3:30 to 5 minutes. There are 2 different stronghold difficulties, Stronghold that allows auto-aim and Hardcore Stronghold that has free aim. I advise going for this trophy in a causal Stronghold match if you are not boosting.
Map tips for non-boosting:
Escalera: Stay behind the building north from where you spawn first. Don't cover, just hide behind the wall and kill everyone that approaches. Roll behind the wall again if you are taking too much shots.
Thieves' Landing: Cross the bridge in front of where you spawn, head right and take cover/hide behind the corner in a way you can see the flag. PS. There is a blind spot behind you in the opposite corner, can be solved if a friend stays there as you stay in the stop you are at.
Blackwater: The hardest one. The flag doesn't have too much cover spots near it. Your best bet is to stay behind the building in front of the train station, facing the flag and the enemies spawn camp (up the mount).
For boosting, best doable in a Private game with a friend. Start a two player Stronghold match. Do nothing until time expires and the defending team gets trophy. Team swap occurs, do nothing again and the other players get the trophy. Thanks PuppetShoJustice for the Boosting tip.
If you plan to boost this trophy, please use the boosting thread:
This is a harder trophy, since you are playing against live players and don't know where they will end up. If you happen to come across a group of players in one place and have an Explosive Rifle, shoot them and this trophy will pop. This trophy is easier if you are boosting and have a stick of Dynamite in your possession.
Mostly likely if you are playing in a Public Match, your enemies will be guarding the Dock, so if you get there without getting caught and throw a Dynamite which kills them (before you die), you should obtain this trophy. Try not to run when going to blow up the opposing team, because your icon will pop up on the mini-map and the other team will be able to see it.
The easiest locations to get this trophy are Thieves' Landing by the second safe (using Dynamite) and Fort Mercer (using the Cannons).
"The attacking team in Stronghold starts with a stick of Dynamite each time you spawn." Thanks PuppetShoJustice.
"The Explosive Rifle can be found in safes throughout the Stronghold maps in competitive modes." Thanks oOoOo.
You can join a posse that has already started earning points in a public free roam and the points will still help you earn the trophy. You can also form a posse of 8, but you don't have to earn points together, just while in a posse. For example, half the people can split from the group of 8 and do Hunting Grounds while the other half can go and do Gang Hideouts. Just stay in a posse and don't break it. Hunting Grounds are black circles with 2 white circles inside and Gang Hideouts are black circles with a white bandit face and hat.
If your teammate leaves or gets disconnected, your posse’s points will drop and you will only be left with just the points the remaining player(s) have. When the disconnected player joins again he will start off with 0 points.
If you get 50,000 points and you invite other players to your posse they will get that trophy too, as long as they have the DLC and you still have total posse points of at least 50,000.
To do this with 2-3 people, form a posse and go to Solomon’s Folly where you can net about 500 or more posse points in about a minute. This trophy will take around an hour and a half to obtain with 2-3 people.
A better method if you have a bigger posse, 5-8 people. The trophy will be obtained in less than an hour if you achieve more posse points. The narrator will alert your posse to your progress. He will announce when you reach 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 and then after you reach 50,000. He even announces your individual points.
There are two ways to check your stats: while in free roam right after the Hideout you are doing has ended and the stats page pops up, and when you are not in a mission.
1. When you finish a Gang Hideout, hold and the points will pop up with your score and the players in your posse; next to the posse leader will be the total posse points.
2. After you complete a Gang Hideout or Hunting Ground, you get the personal stat screen that says Total XP, and press to get the posse points for that run, that is your score toward your posse points + what your posse gets.
This is a single player trophy that could be obtained after you complete the story, since zombies come back after you have cleansed a town. You may want to complete the game first, since zombies tend to infest a town while in a mission. The more you progress through the game, the more zombies you will have to clear and the more territory comes available. So wait until you have unlocked Mexico and completed the first mission in Las Hermanas and Casa Madrugada (after you watch Casa Madrugada's cut-scene, the city will be safe automatically).
You have three in-game days until the town you have just cleaned up is infested with zombies again, four days until a town is overrun and four and a half days until you lose a survivor. So I would advise to wait until you have completed the single player story first before going to clean up the total amount of areas. You can lose all survivors in a town (but will have less protection and mostly likely get attacked more often) and still get this trophy.
What the Icons on the map stand for:
White: Unknown Location - You haven't been there yet.
Blue Cross: Safe Zone - You cleansed the city of zombies, they will return but not for some time.
Green: Under Attack - The zombies are trying to get the town back, that's the color the city will be when you go there the first time.
Red: Overrun - The zombies took control of the city, one survivor will die each day if you don't clean the city.
Red Cross: All the survivors in that city have died. You can still take it back, but from now on, it will have less protection.
There are 23 locations that need to be clean from the infestation that we call zombies:
West Elizabeth: 4
Blackwater, Manzanita Post, Cochinay, Pacific Union R.R. Camp
New Austin: 9
Thieves' Landing, MacFarlane's Ranch, Armadillo, Twin Rocks, Fort Mercer, Plainview, Ridgewood Farm, Rathskeller Fork, Gaptooth Breach
Nuevo Paraiso: 10
Nosalida, Escalera, Tesoro Azul, Chuparosa, Las Hermanas, Agave Viejo, Casa Madrugada, El Presidio, Torquemada (look at the video below for help finding that location).
Press and go to Stats to see your progress. You need every single player trophy before you can obtain Zed's Dead, Baby. Here is a list for the DLC requirements for 100%:
*Complete all the missions:
-Curious Tales from Blackwater
-Dinner for Two
-Get Back in That Hole, Partner
-Birth of the Conservation Movement
-A Cure For Most of What Ails You

-Mother Superior Blues
*Have all the regions saved at least once *Clean all the Graveyards (just follow the story) *Save all 16 survivors (Lost Souls)
El Presidio (6)
Fort Mercer (10)
Note: When you start a rescue mission, go to your bed and fast travel to the nearest town of your target in order to save time. However, you can't use it after you get to your target location, but you still have your trusty mount to get back with.
Note 2: Once you have saved all survivors at each location, you will get a notification on the top left of the screen, stating that you have saved all survivors at that location.
*Break the Unicorn *Kill the Chupacabra *Complete all the Challenges
-Horses of the Apocalypse
-Undead Treasure Hunter
*Get all the Outfits:
-Legend of the Apocalypse or Legend of the Undead (if you have completed the story)
-Undead Hunter or Army of the Undead (if you have completed the story)
Please view the challenge detail below for the easiest way to unlock each Rank in the Undead Nightmare Challenges. Below are the four Challenges that have to be completed up to Legendary rank for this trophy to pop. Here is a link to finding other locations to some of the mythical creatures http://ps3.ign.com/articles/113/1134431p1.html
This will come naturally. These are the most common zombies.
Regular: your everyday common zombie Bolter: scampers around on all fours, leaps at you
Undead Hunter Rank 2 Kill 25 more Bruisers & 15 more Retchers
This will come naturally, but if you are having doubts, do a cleansing of a town. You can always leave the town before fully cleaning it and come back and it will start you over again.
Retcher: glows a bit green, spits acid at you Bruiser: charges at you, knocking you off your feet, big-boned fella
Undead Hunter Rank 3 Use a single explosion of a Retcher to kill 2 other undead.
There is a mission you do for Nigel West Dickens, where you get an army uniform and have to take the train to go to Mexico. After you reach the roadblock, there will be an army of zombies right in front of the train with a Retcher (glowing green) in the middle. Aim at it and you should be able to get this and move on to rank 4.
If you have done this before getting to rank 3, you can always go and cleanse a town and try to get a Retcher and 2 other enemies together. You cannot tie them up and then try to get this.
Undead Hunter Rank 4 Kill 2 undead bears, 5 undead wolves and 3 undead cougars using a torch.
This may sound hard, but it's very easy. The best way to get this is by using the horse Pestilence (it's almost invincible) and staying away from zombies (they pull you from the horse). Then you just need to run around the animals using the torch on them.
Cougars: North of Tall Trees Bears: Center Wolves: Around center, they are all black and mostly found in Mexico around Las hermanas
Undead Hunter Rank 5 Find and Kill a Chupacbra.
There is only one in the game, please see Chupathingy for more details.
Undead Treasure Hunter Rank 1-5
Find the first map in a chest at a wilderness camp and find the treasure.
Thanks typicalgamer for the video:
You need to find a campsite that has a woman chained up, clawing her way to kill her husband. You might be able to find this one by Sepulcro under the Letter "U". Kill him & open the chest there, only available at night.
There are other places to find the treasure map:
The first treasure map from the random encounter that has the guy with the gatling gun.
The encounter with the two guys surrounded by boxes, fighting off zombies, also has a chest which has the first map. Located by the Three Horses (Diez Coronas). Check the map under the Fan Service trophy.
Northwest of Hennigan's Stead, in a snowy section on a mountain.
If you look at the map and go west from "Pacific Union R.R. Camp" (the words, not the actual camp), you can follow a path up into the darker yellowish/greenish part of the map. The next one first shows you Venter's Place, head straight east, again from the words and up in to the rocks you'll find the little pile of rocks.
Just a little ways northwest of The Scratching Post.
Just south of Sepulcro under some trees.
West of Casa Madrugada on the bottom "shelf" of the mountain.
Undead Sharp Shooter 1-5
Note: Use Casual Aim for Rank 1 & 2. It auto-aims for the head and every weapon is a one-shot kill. So you can get 10 headshots in row as well as 5 kills in 10 seconds. This way you can get these in Blackwater and then switch aim back to Normal or Expert (for players that don't like causal aiming).
Undead Sharp Shooter Rank 1 Kill 5 Undead in 10 seconds using a gun.
This will come naturally once you clear out your first town, which is Blackwater. Aim at the head and try not to get too close - doing a close up shot takes time and can affect your chances of getting this rank. Use the Cattleman Revolver for fast kills and fast reload time.
Undead Sharp Shooter Rank 2 Headshot 10 undead in a row.
Another straight-forward challenge. All you have to do is aim at the head of the zombie. If you use auto-aim most of the time it's already aimed at the zombie's head. Missing one zombie in-between kills will bring the headshot score back down to zero. You can easily achieve this rank at Blackwater.
Undead Sharp Shooter Rank 3 Kill 5 flaming undead in 1 dead eye Meter.
If you need fire bottles, try saving Thieves' Landing.
An extremely easy way is to use phosphorus from your menu. Then activate dead eye, mark 5 heads, shoot them, done. No need to put them on fire as phosphorus is considered fire. Credits to nicogr78o for this tip.
You get the Phosphorus Coating during the normal story mode. Press , go to Kit and scroll down to the Phosphorus Coating to use it on your Guns. Go to Old Fellow's Rest to a gorge to find a lot of zombies for this rank.
Alternative: You can use the Horse War that has fire coming from its body, aim your weapon at the zombies that are on fire, activate dead eye and aim at five of them. Thanks AlejandroM for the tip.
Alternative 2: If you have a fire bottle (you will get when you clear Thieves' Landing) and you have some bait, then go to Fort Mercer. When you climb the ladder, turn around, throw some bait in a nice open place, wait for some zombies, then throw one or two fire bottles. Use your dead eye and kill them. Thanks Jeans for the tip.
Undead Sharp Shooter Rank 4 Kill one of each of the 4 undead types in 1 dead eye meter.
Go to El Presidio; all 4 types spawn right outside. Make sure you aim at multiple zombies at once and use a gun that has a lot of ammunition.
The 4 undead types are: Regular: your everyday common zombie Retcher: glows a bit green, spits acid at you Bruiser: charges at you, knocking you off your feet, big-boned fella Bolter: scampers around on all fours, leaps at you
Undead Sharp Shooter Rank 5 Get 5 undead sniper kills in 8 seconds (can't use dead eye).
If you need a sniper rifle, try saving Pacific Union Railroad Camp.
You can get this Legendary Rank right in front of El Presidio. There are a group of zombies there and it doesn't matter which ones you shoot as long as it's within 8 seconds and you kill 5. The only Rifle I had was the Rolling Block rifle, it works charms. Stand as far away from the entrance and in close range of the zombies. When they are in groups go for the kill. Make sure you shoot them in the head for the kill to count.
Alternative Method: You can just take your rifle without aiming, in the middle of a group of zombies, and execute them with the finish move... you don't even have to aim. Press or /, whichever button you use to shoot to perform a finishing move. Thanks Grafinenko for the tip.
Alternative 2: If you equip some Phosphorus, you don't have to aim for the head and taking down 5 zombies is quite easy this way.
Four Horses of the Apocalypse Rank 1-5
Four Horses of the Apocalypse Rank 1-4 Find one of the four Horses of the apocalypse.
These four horses appear in random places and one of the horses is given after you have completed the main story of Undead Nightmare. War in New Austin, Pestilence in West Elizabeth, Famine in Mexico (somewhere between Escalera and Tesoru Azul), and Death is story-related and given at the end of the game.
With Famine being the hardest to find, here are more locations to help in finding the horse:
Northwest of Torquemada where the 3 horses are on on the map. Thanks Jamby
West of Crooked Toes (which is NW of Escalera, near the river). Thanks AlejandroM
With War being the second hardest to find, here are more locations to help in finding the horse:
War spawned between Armadillo and Fort Mercer for me. RapTjik
Found War on my way to the first Lost Souls mission in Fort Mercer. aleFH
Found War while riding to MacFarlane's Ranch from Thieves' Landing. I don't think it spawns near the ranch, it actually spawns near Thieves' Landing. deadface
It finally spawned somewhere around north of Armadillo. j2eco7V
Found War in Tall Trees while searching a mission-related Mythical Creature. GodChild1020
War: Can set people and zombies afire Pestilence: Is almost immortal Famine: Has unlimited stamina Death: Explodes zombie's heads
Four Horses of the Apocalypse Rank 5 Kill one of each Undead Type using the fourth Horse of the apocalypse
Also known as "Death" (Trample the Undead)
They are: Regular: your everyday common zombie Retcher: glows a bit green, spits acid at you Bruiser: charges at you, knocking you off your feet, big-boned fella Bolter: scampers around on all fours, leaps at you
When you start the online component of the multiplayer, go to Undead Overrun to activate the match. You can either wait in the lobby for 3 other players or have your posse ready while in Free Roam. The best way to get to wave 15 is to kill the zombies; there is a timer and a bar in the middle of the screen at the top. The faster you kill the zombies the faster the bar will go up.
You have to kill zombies until you reach wave 15. The best way to do this is to:
Use Casual Aiming - This aims for the head with less work for you. Thanks the_requiem & Mjc0961
Open up the coffins to obtain more time and ammo. The first 5-8 rounds are the best time to spend opening coffins.
Use Long Range weapons and quick shots to the head.
The best one to use is Long Shot.
Stay close to your posse, that way if someone dies you can revive them.
Don't seek cover, zombies and coffins don't spawn the same place twice, so always be moving.
When you reach Wave 10, things will start to get ugly. I recommend one of the team stay in a rooftop shooting zombies.
Use bait + dynamite combo to take down multiple zombies fast and score big.
When your ally is downed, don't try to rescue him too soon or the same zombies that downed him will do the same with you, kill some zombies before you attempt to rescue him, or you can use the bait to make them go away from your teammate.
You can try to get to Wave 15 with just 2 people, but I highly recommend you try it with at least 3 people so you don't get frustrated.
It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get to wave 15 with a group of 4 people. It would take about 30-35 minutes to get to Wave 23 if you plan to go any further.
Basically, players fight over a patch of land in one of seven different towns: Armadillo, Blackwater, Chuparosa, Escalera, Las Hermanas, Mac Farlane’s Ranch and Thieves Landing. To start a game, find a post that says Land Grab and activate. All players can participate - but if they don't have the Undead DLC they can't activate the post.
You have to kill 8 unique players in one sitting before the time expires. You can only use the post that is on the map at one of the locations, while in Free Roam. You need one player to claim the land and then you have to kill eight people that try to take the land from you. Don't die and don't let anyone take or come close to the land that you have hold of. Start a private match to make sure all nine players get in the match.
The trophy will pop up right after you killed the eighth player. After the trophy pops, another person takes the land and kills another eight people, so on and so forth. 3 or 4 people can get the trophy in one match and then you will have to start over again. Please use the Trophy Boosting Thread if you need to boost. Make sure you are not in a posse with the other players if you are boosting. Boosting is highly recommended.
Note for boosters: The easiest way to boost this is to have eight players stand very close to each other, and the player going for the trophy just needs to throw a stick of dynamite at the group, if there are an stranglers, just use your gun and shoot.
It's very hard to get without boosting. When you start a Land Grab, the other players don't get transported to the post's location. They get notified but it’s optional, they rarely stop what they are doing to capture your post.
The best place for obtaining this trophy: Thieves Landing
1. The marker is at a platform with steps, so the person going for it can have a good position to throw dynamite as well as take headshots.
2. There is water around. So at the end of a session, everyone should go for swim to make the marker respawn. Thanks the_requiem.
Complete 'Curious Tales from Blackwater, USA' Survivor Mission.
Story-related, cannot be missed. It's the second mission you do in the Undead Nightmare DLC.
After you get to Blackwater, in the beginning of the story, you will have to burn some coffins and then protect the city. After you do this, you'll be asked to search for other survivors. There are two groups: One is in the top of a small one floor house near the saloon and the other is in a field just next to the first group. After you find both of the groups and the cut-scenes are over, you will be rewarded the trophy.
Complete 'Cure For Most of What Ails You' and 'Get Back in that Hole, Partner' Survivor Missions.
Story-related, cannot be missed.
"Cure For Most of What Ails You"
In Fort Mercer, help West Dickens by collecting 5 Violet Snowdrop and 5 Desert Chase flowers. After you return to him, you're asked to get some "parts" in Riley's Charge. Head there and after you get the parts return to West Dickens and your quest is over.
"Get Back in that Hole, Partner"
Here you have to find (south of Thieves' Landing) Seth, burn the coffins and kill the remaining zombies in 3 graveyards marked on the map.
After you get to Mexico, head to Las Hermanas. You will meet the Mother Superior (she's not a sister) and you are tasked to cleanse Las Hermanas.
After you get back to her, she will ask you to bring to her a normal zombie. Now, travel anywhere outside of the town until you see a zombie (these zombies have nothing special, they just attack), lasso it and bring it back to Mother Superior. After you get back, the game will tell you to wait some time for Mother Superior to take a decision (or something like that).
However, you need to complete another task in Casa Madrugada so you unlock the next part of the Stranger Task. Go to Casa Madrugada and complete Landon Rickets missions, then go back to Las Hermanas and talk to Mother Superior. After the talk is over, you will need to head over to Escalera with a cool song playing. Oh, you will also get the trophy but the song is much cooler.
You won't get a notification when the Unicorn is in the area. The Unicorn is located where the image of the 3 horses near Torquemada on the map is. You can go there and lasso every horse that you see or look for the unicorn with butterflies and a rainbow coming from its body. The Unicorn is a Hungarian Half-Breed and obviously a horn on its forehead. You need to complete Undead HunterRank 1-5 and Four Horses of the Apocalypse Rank 1-5 to find the Unicorn.
Once you have completed Undead Hunter Rank 4, Rank 5 will be to locate the Chupacabra. When you are near the Chupacabra, a royal blue circle will pop up and notify you that a mythical creature is in the area. The possible locations in Mexico are: South of Perdido, South of Sepulcro, Casa Madrugada, Mesa del Sol (which is Northeast of Casa Madrugada), north of El Matadero on the map and between Chuparosa and Peridido. All listed locations are in Mexico.
If you travel to the cabin in Tanner's Reach, you will start a quest to kill six, yes SIX, Sasquatches. A question mark will appear on the map with a green circle where one can be found, then the next circle appears and so on. The trophy is awarded after one is killed. You don't have to kill all six Sasquatches, once you have found the last one you are given an option to kill him.
The side mission is called Birth of the Conservation Movement. One shotgun shell to the head or back close range will take the Sasquatch out. They are found in Tall Trees.
