Easy money

Find one of the bird shooting challenges. They are usually easy to find; just listen for shots and watch for a lot of birds circling in the sky. Accept the challenge and intentionally lose. The wager will then double. Repeat this until you have just enough money to make one more bet. Then, watch the sky and wait until you can see the amount of birds you need to win the bet. Accept the challenge, then go into Dead Eye mode. Take down the proper amount to win. Note: It may help to have moonshine or chewing tobacco in case you run out of Dead Eye. After you win the bet, put on your bandanna and kill the man you bet against. Loot his body and he will have the same amount of cash as the final wager. The more money you have to work with, the more you can make. It is possible to loot over $20,000 from him.

Treasure locations

Search the following locations to find the corresponding hidden treasure. Collect all nine treasures to complete the Treasure Hunter challenge. Note: You should get your first treasure map from a random encounter, in which you save a Stranger from a group of bandits attacking his wagon. The subsequent maps for the Treasure Hunter challenge are located inside each successive treasure chest.

Hidden Treasure 1: Rhodes’ Gold (New Austin Territory)
Rhodes’ Gold is located at Hanging Rock, north of Armadillo in Cholla Springs. The chest can be found at the base of the largest boulder, under a pile of rocks in a narrow area, which can be reached by exploring the north side of Hanging Rock and following the narrow path such exploration reveals.

Hidden Treasure 2: Jackson’s Gold (New Austin Territory)
Jackson’s Gold is located just east of Rio Bravo near the Rio Del Lobo, at a location called "Del Lobo Rock". Find the gap in the rocks at the top of the cliff indicated on the treasure map, and save your game (in case you fall down to the riverbed). Move through the gap, and go to the right. Then, switch back to the left, and hug the cliff face until you can drop down into the shadow of the bulbous outcropping. Look at the map for a depiction of this route. The treasure can be found on a small ledge.

Hidden Treasure 3: Calhoun’s Gold (New Austin Territory)
Calhoun’s Gold is located in the basement of the old mansion in Tumbleweed. Enter it using the back cellar entrance on the west side, and walk straight until you reach the basement wall. The treasure can be found below a mounted bull skull on the wall.

Hidden Treasure 4: Tubman’s Gold (Mexico Territory)
Travel towards the San Luis River, starting from the Tree Of Skulls. The area is just north of Chuparosa. Proceed until you reach the second stone wall. Tubman’s Gold treasure is on the river side of it.

Hidden Treasure 5: Brown’s Gold (Mexico Territory)
Brown’s Gold is located on top of the rock spires in Crooked Toes, in Punta Orgullo just east of Escalera. Proceed past the small cave with the chest, and climb to the top of the spire, using a jump, hang, climb maneuver.

Hidden Treasure 6: Douglass’ Gold (Mexico Territory)
Douglass’ Gold is located at the Ojo Del Diablo, South of Chuparosa. The treasure is on the west side of the arch.

Hidden Treasure 7: Garrison’s Gold
(Mexico Territory)
Garrison’s Gold is located northeast of Agave Viejo, northeast of Roca de Madera. The stool-shaped rock in the first two treasure map illustrations is just off the main road leading northwest from Casa Madrugada, just above the armadillo on the main map. From the stool-shaped rock, look southwest, and you should see a path that begins just above some rock spires. Follow it to its end to find the treasure.

Hidden Treasure 8: Pickett’s Gold (Northern Territory)
Pickett’s Gold is located east of the ranch at Beecher’s Hope, near a large tree split by a lightning strike. The treasure is buried in a gap in the stone fence north of the tree.

Hidden Treasure 9: Stonewall’s Gold (Northern Territory)
North of Manzanita Post is a small, snow-covered horse path. Follow it until you reach a plateau, then explore the north side of the plateau until you find a cave. Stonewall’s Gold treasure is inside the cave.

Play in online Free Roam mode. Find a gang hideout and kill all the enemies, as well as the reinforcements that appear. Loot the bodies to get money and ammunition, then leave the hideout.

Determining horse breeds

  • If you go to the general store, you can purchase horses by buying a deed for them. Instead of buying the deed, check the info, and it will give you a description of the horse's appearance. You can compare this information with horses you break to help determine the horse breed.

  • Another good way to determine a horse's breed and quality is to break and ride them just a few seconds. You should be able to instantly tell the difference between a 1-star, 2-star, and 3-star horse. The stamina will deplete much quicker the lower the quality, and the horse itself will not run as fast. Physically you can also tell a difference. If you can see any ribs or bones, the horse is low quality, while thicker more muscular horses are the 3-star ones. You can get the 3-star Pearl from the "Bonnie" mission very early in the game. The Hungarian Half-bred is found in Mexico and is an off-white color. The Standardbred Pinto is all black and can be found in Mexico. Other horse breeds that can be found throughout the game are American Standardbred, Ardennais, Cleaveland Bay, Dutch Warmblood, Friesian, Highland Chestnut, Kentucky Saddler, Lusitano, Painted Quarter Horse, Painted Standardbred, Quarter Horse, Tersk, Tobiano Pinto, Turkmen, War Horse, and Welsh Mountain.

Online XP Farming

Homing projectiles

With a throwing weapon (Flame bottle, knife or dynamite) in hand, enter Dead Eye mode and try to imagine the normal targeting reticule on your screen. The target will not appear, but it works the same. If you rapidly tap R1 then it will be easier. When you release the object (automatic after locking on), the projectile will home in on the target. Try this with a stick of dynamite on birds; the effect is hilarious.

Easy Master Hunter Completion (Level 5)

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

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

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

Access West Elizabeth / Tall Trees Area Early

There's a cliff and a waterfall in the far northern regions of New Austin -- just above the MacFarlane Ranch. Enter this area and you'll see "Tall Trees" appear on your screen. If you can manage to get arrested here you'll get carted off to Blackwater. From here you can access the full northern map. You'll need to auto save (see 'Save Anywhere' cheat) and die to return to the southern areas. If you buy the property in Manzanita, it will prevent you from doing this. However, it is possible to hop the unfinished bridge in Thieves' Landing to get back.

Access Mexico Early

To access Mexico early, travel to the bridge called "Frontera Bridge." Ride your horse quickly to the end of the bridge and get off the horse, letting it plummet into the water below. Do not call a new horse. Walk backwards until the railroad tracks start running into solid ground, turn left and go down a steep slope to the riverbank. There should be many small bushes by the river here. The music should also switch. If you don't hear the music, start over. Set up a campsite when you hear the music and you will find yourself on the Mexican side of the river. To get back, you have to travel to the bridge called "Romita de la Baya." Do the same thing with the horse here, let it fall into the river and set up a campsite on the island. The campsite should be near the edge of the island to the north, either to the left or the right of the bridge. You can also listen to the music here, when you hear the music change back to the "American" music, you can set up your camp and you will be back on the north side of the river.
