Red Dead Redemption Guide

Unofficial Red Dead Redemption Guide by Michael Monette for



Set in 1911 in the dying Old West, Red Dead Redemption is the latest offering from Rockstar Games. With a gripping storyline, memorable characters, beautiful landscapes and quality gameplay to boot, this Western epic is nothing short of a masterpiece.

In Red Dead Redemption, you play as John Marston, a former outlaw who seeks to leave his violent past behind. But when his family is taken from him, Marston must hunt the criminals he used to run with to redeem himself and return to his new life.

This guide covers all 57 story missions and everything else needed to attain the coveted 100% completion stat.

Note: This guide was written based on the Xbox 360 version of the game, but effort has been made to include PlayStation 3 controls where applicable.

You don't need cheat codes to catch the stallion in wild horses tamed passions. You simply need to chase the stallion until it starts going around in circles. Then you simply laso it, break it in, then ride back to Bonnie. Hope I helped[size=12][/size]

where do you get a lasso from?

The lasso is obtained during the horse taming mission, hold L1 and use right stick to select which item you want to use Ie; fists, revolver, lasso ect

Added 2nd Apr 2011, ID #35355

i am stuck at the part where you help Bonnie herd the cattle during the storm.

I find if you ride quite close to the back of the heard they tend to stay together and go in the correct direction.

If they start to part IE; drift to the left or right, simply ride a little that way and force them the right way.

Added 2nd Apr 2011, ID #35352

[#2233]when you have the lasso round the horses neck, you must keep you finger on the L2 button and climb onto the horse, if you let go of the L2 the lasso will reset.

You have to be invited to a posse, but you can create your own posse by pressing the back button and select a player and then select the player and then press invite to posse.

[quoteby]I am stuck on a level were you have to tame a horse. Please could anybody help or have any tip to share.[/quote]

Taming horses is easy. Just flick your analogue stick in the opposite direction to the way John is leaning. So if he's leaning left, give it a flick right, and vise versa.
