xxx Started this Guide on 18 September 2010. xxx

Sep 18, 2010 - Version 0.50 - Started Guide. Compiled most info, 
                              Basic formatting ripped from my Far Cry 2 
                              Weapons Guide
Sep 19, 2010 - Version 1.00 - Tweaked the formatting. Adding info to all 
                              weapons, fixing things all round. Considered

3. INTRODUCTION                                                        [INTRO]
==============================================================================

 This Guide is a Guide for all weapons and similar information of the 
Rockstar Game, Red Dead Redemption. It is a sandbox game based on the 
Old West, in the flavour of GTA, but with more The Good, The Bad and The 
Ugly. 
 The game has great voice acting, a good script, and great gameplay. The 
Old West is a under-used setting for video-games, thankfully in many 
regards, and Red Dead Redemption captures the spirit and atmosphere of the 
Old West. 

 The vastness of the game world delivers a feeling of wonder. And dread, in 
it's own way. I really felt for the people that lived in those ages, for it 
was not a pleasant existence. 
 Many characters lament on the fact that the Old West is dying, and it 
was. You get that feeling from RDR. The Value of your life was balanced 
with the weight of the bullet in your gun, and bullet's weren't too 
valuable. 

 If you have any interest in the Old West, from books to Film, this is 
really a treat. I love a good western, and thankfully, there isn't the 
saturation that WWII games/film has experienced. 
 Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is another Western game available, but it 
does not capture the real spirit of the West. It does, however, have some 
great gun-play, so it is certainly a good buy if you haven't got it already.
 And go watch some westerns after this. Oh yeah!

 If you find something missing, please contact me via email. If this Guide 
helps, or you just enjoyed it, recommend it to all your fellow players. 
This is my second guide, but have been a user of a few years, and am ready 
to upgrade from lurker status.
 I will include all the DLC weapon and equipment info when applicable and 
if I can. I will say, I have not all played the DLC's so, if the info is 
incorrect, blame various forums.
 I take no responsibility for the validity of the information contain 
herein. If you loose money, a contest or anything else, it's not my fault 
you trusted a pseudo-WIKI.

 Cheers!



4. Weapons and Equipment                                               [WEAPN]
==============================================================================

 In Red Dead Redemption, it pays to have the best weapons. You will be shot 
down, murdered and gored many times, so make sure you can defend yourself 
properly.
 Rockstar has been kind enough to include an stockpile of weapons for us,
so it can (not really) be confusing when deciding on what to carry into a 
battle.
  I am including multiplayer unlock ranks in the main details of the 
weapons, be sure to look to section 5 for a concise list of the required 
rank to unlock.

 4a. Revolvers/Pistols                                          [REVPL]
 ======================================================================
     Revolvers/Pistols are the NORTH Selection on the Weapon Radial

  Cattleman Revolver                                       [CATTL]
   ================
  DESCRIPTION: Colt Single Action Army "Peacemaker"

   =============
  DESCRIPTION: Volcanic Pistol .25 "Rocket Ball"

  FIRE MODE: Lever-Action
  WEAPON COST: $100
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4.5
      - RANGE: 3

      - RELOAD SPEED: 2.5
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 8
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 5/ Armadillo Gunsmith, Twin Rocks Hideout
  INFO: Weak, considering it's a pistol. Pistol ammo is rare early in the 
        game. Distinctive weapon however.

  Schofield Revolver                                       [SCHOF]
   ================
  DESCRIPTION: Smith & Wesson No. 3 Cavalry Model 1875
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Revolver
  FIRE MODE: Revolver Semi-Auto
  WEAPON COST: Free
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4
      - RANGE: 4
      - RATE OF FIRE: 6
      - RELOAD SPEED: 4
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 6
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 9/ Landon Ricketts-"The Gunslinger's Tragedy."
  INFO: Very powerful in single player, but somewhat weaker in multi. 
        Very accurate too, so is a favoured weapon for quite a while

  Double-action Revolver                                   [DOUBA]
   ====================
  DESCRIPTION: Colt New Army & Navy M1892
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Revolver
  FIRE MODE: Revolver Semi-Auto
  WEAPON COST: Pickup
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4
      - RANGE: 3.5
      - RATE OF FIRE: 8
      - RELOAD SPEED: 3.5
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 6
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 17/ Tesoro Azul hideout
  INFO: Apparently a lot of people miss this weapon as it is not required 
       for 100% completion and is only available in a hideout.
       Think of it as a faster firing Schofield

  Semi-Automatic Pistol                                    [SEMIP]
   ===================
  DESCRIPTION: Borchardt C-93
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Pistol
  FIRE MODE: Semi-Auto
  WEAPON COST: $300 - Neutral Fame/Honor
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4.5
      - RANGE: 4
      - RATE OF FIRE: 8
      - RELOAD SPEED: 9
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 7
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 24/ Escalera Gunsmith
  INFO: A great gun once you get it. Great fire-rate and quick reloads, help 
        rapid gun battles, but it's accuracy is not amazing. depending on 
        choice, you may stick with the Schofield.

  High Power Pistol                                        [HIGHP]
   ===============
  DESCRIPTION: FN Model 1903
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Pistol
  FIRE MODE: Semi-Auto
  WEAPON COST: Free
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 5
      - RANGE: 4
      - RATE OF FIRE: 8
      - RELOAD SPEED: 9
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 8
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 35/ Edgar Ross-"Bear One Another's Burdens"
  INFO: My favourite Pistol. Looks like a modern weapon, and has great 
        stopping power. A shot to the chest can kill, fast reload and fast 
        fire-rate means that this puts people DOWN!

  LeMat Revolver                                           [LEMAT]
   ============
  DESCRIPTION: LeMat Revolver
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Revolver
  FIRE MODE: Revolver Semi-Auto
  WEAPON COST: $1250 - Neutral Fame/Honor
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4.5
      - RANGE: 3.5
      - RATE OF FIRE: 7.5
      - RELOAD SPEED: 2
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 9
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 46/ Escalera Gunsmith after "The Gates of El Presidio"
  INFO: This Weapon can unlock the Exquisite Taste Trophy/Achievement
        Quite powerful, can kill in one shot, but reloads quite slowly, so 
        it has it's fan's, not me

  Mauser Pistol                                            [MAUSE]
   ===========
  DESCRIPTION: Mauser C96
  WEAPON SLOT: Revolvers/Pistols
  WEAPON CLASS: Pistol
  FIRE MODE: Full-Auto
  WEAPON COST: $800 - Neutral Fame/Honor
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 5
      - RANGE: 4
      - RATE OF FIRE: 10
      - RELOAD SPEED: 9
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 15
  AVAILABILITY: Rank / Blackwater gunsmith
  INFO: This Weapon can unlock the Exquisite Taste Trophy/Achievement
        High Power, Incredible fire-rate and large mag make this a weapon
        of choice for anyone. While the High-Power Pistol is more powerful, 
        this can plant 2-3 shells into a target quite easily, so it wins in 
        an Expert Targeting situation


 4b. Repeaters/Rifles                                           [RIFLS]
 ======================================================================

  WEAPON CLASS: Repeater
  FIRE MODE: Lever-Action
  WEAPON COST: Not for Sale
  STATS: 
      - POWER: 4
      - RANGE: 5
      - RATE OF FIRE: 4
      - RELOAD SPEED: 3
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 7
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 2/ Bonnie MacFarlane-"New Friends, Old Problems"
  INFO: Piss-weak. It works, so it does kill, but it is the possibly the 
        weakest weapon in the game

  Winchester Repeater                                      [WINCH]
   =================
  DESCRIPTION: Winchester Model 1873 Repeating Rifle

      - AMMO CAPACITY: 10

  INFO: You'll have this for quite a while, so just as well its quite decent.

  Springfield Rifle                                        [SPRIN]
   ===============
  DESCRIPTION: Springfield M1873 "Trapdoor" Cavalry Carbine

      - RELOAD SPEED: 3
      - AMMO CAPACITY: 4
  AVAILABILITY: Rank 13/ Thieves' Landing Gunsmith + Gaptooth Breach hideout

7. Weapon-Based Achievements/Trophies                                  [ACHIV]
==============================================================================

    EXQUISITE TASTE (10gs)(Bronze)
     Purchase a rare weapon from a gunsmith.
      - The weapons that unlock this are:
       - Carcano Rifle
       - Evans Repeater
       - LeMat Revolver
       - Mauser Pistol
       - Semi-auto Shotgun
     
    BULLSEYE (20gs)(Bronze)
     Get 250 headshots in any game mode.
      - It's 250 enemies in Multi- OR Single-Player. Not both. So grind 
        away in only one mode for it. They do not stack.
        Try replaying a hideout many times. Dead eye if your aim sucks.
        And this counts to your "IN A HAIL OF BULLETS" and "LONG ARM OF 
        MARSTON" achievements, so do this first.

    IN A HAIL OF BULLETS (20gs)(Silver)
     Kill 500 enemies with any pistol or revolver in any game mode.
      - It's 500 enemies in Multi- OR Single-Player. Not both. So grind 
        away in only one mode for it. They do not stack.
        Thieves Landing is a good place to spam. Just save often. Check 
        your stats in Main Menu, Stats, Combat and tally your Revolver/Pistol 
        kills. That's how many you have.

    LONG ARM OF MARSTON (20gs)(Silver)
     Kill 500 enemies with any rifle, repeater, or shotgun
      - It's 500 enemies in Multi- OR Single-Player. Not both. So grind 
        away in only one mode for it. They do not stack.
        Twin Rock's is good, or Solomon's Folly. Check your stats in Main 
        Menu, Stats, Combat and tally your Rifle,Repeater and Shotgun 
        kills. That's how many you have.

    MOWING THEM DOWN (20gs)(Silver)
     Kill 500 enemies with a mounted weapon in any game mode
      - It's 500 enemies in Multi- OR Single-Player. Not both. So grind 
        away in only one mode for it. They do not stack.
        Replaying a story mission with a mounted gun does NOT add to the 
        tally. 
        So for multiplayer, just grind a private server or something. 
        For single-player, the safe-house in El Matadero has a mounted gun on 
        its roof. Shoot away! 
        Beware, too many dead bodies can cause a slowdown, and ultimate 
        game crash. Save often. 

    THE GUNSLINGER (5gs)(Silver)
     Get a headshot while in Expert Mode in Single-player.
      -  Switch over to Expert Mode in Main Menu, Options, Controller and 
         shoot someone in the head. Expert mode has NO aim assist, so it 
         can be difficult at first.
         If you just suck, hogtie a bounty, switch to Expert Mode, then 
         execute the poor guy. Guilt Guaranteed



8. Frequently Asked Questions                                           [FAQS]
==============================================================================

If you have a question, refer here, then the tips on the weapons themselves 
(Above) then email me. And I might add it here if I can see this is a 
commonish problem

Q: Is there a way to check the name of a weapon that you have just picked up?
A: When you pick it up, it will display the name. Usually, just check it in 
   the weapons select radial menu
   
Q: Is the bandolier really useful, and when should I buy it?
A: Tell the truth, before I bought it, I rarely hit the ammo cap, after I 
   bought it, I never hit the ammo cap. Unless you are very trigger happy,
   you don't REALLY need. It adds to your character model, so its certainly 
   worth it

Q: How do I hogtie? RDR has told me to lasso this bounty, but I can't?
A: This pissed me off for a while. RDR will allow you to take on Bounty 
   Missions with the option to take the bounty alive, but does not give you 
   the ability to actually take them alive. 
   You HAVE to have the Lasso, given 
   to you by Bonnie in her story mission, "Tamed Horses, Wild Passions", 
   despite having you hogtie someone in an earlier story mission, sans Lasso. 
   To actually take someone hostage(hogtie) just shoot them in the leg, and 
   while they aren't shooting you, get closer and lasso them. Then go over 
   to them and push the hogtie button.
   By the way, NOT AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLAYER

 Rockstar, for a great game. And for many other great games. 
 And You for reading

 I used MTV Gaming guide to the multiplayer ranks, and added the DLC 
weapons info, what little there was.
 And RedDead.Wikia.com for various weapon tips and real-life weapon basis 
details. Really don't know how people figured out what the real guns were. 
That's some detail....
