Click: Red Dead Redemption Guides with Gold Medal requirements

After you've completed a mission you can replay it from the stats -> missions menu. Depending on how you complete each mission you are ranked from Bronze to Gold medals. I've been going through the first few missions making a list of the stuff you need to do in order to get gold, but it's pretty time consuming because it generally involves multiple playthroughs of each mission, I think the medals work in the same way as the Ballad of Gay Tony DLC for GTA4 in that you can complete one objective on each play through, and once you've hit the target for each individual objective, you'll get gold. For example you could play through once and take your time, ensuring every kill was a headshot, or that your accuracy was 100%. Then you could play through again and sprint through the missions finishing it as quickly as you can etc. Then once you'd got 100% accuracy, and beat the time limit (in total, across all playthroughs) then you'd get gold.

If any of you would like to help me out with this I'd appreciate it. All I need is for you to play through missions till you get gold, then make a note of your stats in the menu explaining which objectives you completed for gold. Generally it involves Accuracy %, Completion Time and sometimes one mission-exclusive objective, such as the Number of Cows returned etc.

If you want to help, do any missions after the ones below and post your completion data here so I can make a guide. If you have any tips on how to beat certain objectives, such as shortcuts to cut time off the mission, post them too.

Useful Generic Tips
  • Skipping cutscenes will save time.
  • If you fail a mission and continue from the checkpoint, the game remembers all of your stats up until that checkpoint. So you can purposely fail a mission and continue from checkpoint if you mess up the second part of a mission when you know you did the first part perfectly. This still counts towards the medals.
  • You can complete the objectives on separate play throughs. Go for the time limit objective and the accuracy objectives on separate play throughs.
  • Tapping sprint after every 3 horse gallops is the best way to keep running at full speed without losing any stamina.
  • When told to "Return To [sombody]", you can just slow down your horse and they will eventually catch up. Don't waste time turning around and running back towards them. Stop running at full speed when you see this message though or you can fail missions.

nice work and good tips... i got mine doing the "political realities in armadillo" mission biggrin.gif... i like how it saves the your best stats each time so you can focus on tackling individual objectives, one at a time... it usually takes a few tries for each mission but, this trophy/achievement is pretty easy to get...

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.
