Howdy partners, welcome to my guide for RDR2! Be careful while using it, because there are a lot of spoilers here so make sure you will not destroy your experience first. I was able to create this because I already finished the game on Xbox One so I can explain most of the achievements.

There are total of 51 achievements – 10 story line, 17 online and 24 side trophies (5 of them are very hard and time-consuming). Enjoy!

Discover the fate of Marko Dragic

There are three side missions about M.Dragic. You can meet him for the first time in Chapter IV next to the small lake in Saint Denis between 6am and 6pm. After you complete the last mission for him, wait 48 in-game hours and come back to his lab. You will find a lamp next to his body. If you pick it up, the achievement will pop up.

Best in the West

Attain 100% completion


Survive 3 days holding a bounty of $250 in all states

This trophy looks hard, but actually it’s quite simple. The best way to get it is to shoot people in villages or towns, so that somebody can see it. When you finally get $250 bounty in all states (You don’t have to do it in New Austin!) just go to your camp and sleep for three days. Easy.

Remember to save your game before doing this achievement!

Breaking and Entering

Recover the stash from 4 homesteads

There are 7 stash locations in the game, but you only need 4. Here is a map with all of them.

I personally did it by a total accident doing side missions and just exploring the world, so there is a big chance you will do the same.

Collector’s Item

Complete one of the Collectible strands

There are four collectible strands:

  • 30 dinosaur bones.
  • 10 rock carvings.
  • 144 cigarette cards.
  • 20 dreamcatchers.

You can collect all cigarette cards very fast if you did all the story line missions!

First you have to start a stranger mission ”Smoking and other hobbies” in Chapter II. Then, after beating the epilogue, go to general store and keep buying premium cigarettes until you get all the cards (you can check it in menu > progress > compendium). After that just go to the nearby post office and send all the cards to your ”client”. This method takes about 20 minutes and +- 1000$.

If you want to collect something else than cards, go to the Best in the West achievement.

Errand Boy

Deliver 5 camp companion item requests

This trophy can be missed if you don’t do it before Chapter V!

Sometimes when you are in the camp, gang members may ask you to bring them an item they need. Usually they ask you for it if you talk to them, but sometimes they will approach you directly. There are total of 20 item requests, but you only need 5 for the trophy. Here are 5 easy examples (you can do them all in Chapter II so it’s more comfortable).

5$ for Abigail

Talk to her while she is with Jack in their tent between 8am and 8pm and just give her the money.

Comic book for Jack Marston

You will get this request automatically during the story mission ”A Fisher of Men”. You can find this item in a little house nearby Emerald Ranch

Rabbit for Mr. Pearson

Start with talking to Pearson when he’s drinking a beer behind his wagon (8am-2pm). Rabbits can be found almost everywhere, just hunt one and bring it to your camp chef (You can’t give it to him directly, you have to donate it to him by using his table).

Kentucky Bourbon for Sean

Interact with him while he’s making fire bottles in a camp (8am-6pm). Kentucky Bourbon is a popular item, you will probably have one in your inventory. If not, go to the store and buy it for 3$.

Hair Pomade for Bill

Interact with Bill Williamson while he’s sitting on the chair next to his tent between 8am and 8pm. You should have some hair pomade with you, if you don’t you can always buy it in most of the stores.

Extreme Personality

Reach maximum or minimum Honor level

Your Honor status may be changed in many ways – helping random strangers, killing or robbing them, doing missions or even greeting random people, everything matters. You just have to choose your path and either be an evil outlaw or a good boah. It’s up to you!

I personally recommend reaching maximum Honor level. It unlocks some cool stuff and decrease prices, but it’s also very important in the last chapter!

Friends with Benefits

Complete a Companion Activity in each camp

For this achievement you need to complete one companion activity in camp in Chapters II, III and IV.

Here is the list of all available activities:

Chapter II

  • Hunting with Charles
  • Five Finger Fillet with Lenny
  • Home Robbery with Javier

Chapter III

  • Five Finger Fillet with Micah
  • Fishing with Javier or Kieran
  • Home Robbery with Sean

Chapter IV

  • Coach Robbery with Micah or Lenny
  • Hunting with Pearson

Give to the Poor

Donate $250 to the gang tithing box

I believe I don’t have to explain this one.

Gold Rush

Earn 70 Gold Medals in Story missions

Flashbacks from GTA 5? Yeah, me too.

This trophy is very hard and time-consuming. To earn a gold medal on a mission you have to do all the tasks attached to it, for example let’s see the first mission of Chapter I – ‘Outlaws from the West’. The special tasks are:

  • Take no damage during the shootout.
  • Loot 6 or more items from Adler Ranch.
  • Complete with at least 80% accuracy.

You don’t have to do all the tasks at one run! You can repeat the mission as many times as you wish and do them one by one, you will earn gold medal when you do all of them. Now, just do it with 70 other missions and the trophy is yours…

You can find all the missions in Menu>Progress>Story.

Grin and Bear It

Survive 18 bear attacks and kill the bear each time in Story Mode

Hobby Horse

Play all mini games.

There are 4 mini games total:

  • Poker – Main Saloon in Valentine; there is also a story mission connected with poker.
  • Dominoes – Emerald Station.
  • Five Finger Fillet – You can play this very safe game in Valentine or in your camp with Micah or Lenny.
  • Blackjack – Big Saloon in Rhodes.

You don’t have to win any of them to get the trophy, it’s enough if you just play one round.

It’s Art

It was THIS Big!

Catch a fish weighing at least 16 lbs (7.3 kg)

If you like fishing you will probably unlock it by accident, if not – just try to catch a big fish using special lures.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
