*Load up on horse pills, they help your horse regenerate its stamina so that it can win races.
*When you alongside a train's cab, press square to jump in and control it.
*The first semiautomatics can be obtained at the Escalara gunshop. They
are:
1. Semiautomatic pistol.
2. Semiautomatic shotgun.

Ordinary pistol asnd shotgun ammo work in both.

I thought trains weren't controllable?
bOnEs
yea, i just learned how to jump on a train from the missions... but, i don't think the option was available before that mission... so, now i gotta go see if i can FINALLY rob a train biggrin.gif...
Kuwong
the option to jump onto the train was there before whatever mission as I've been doing it recently and I've not done any train missions.

I cant jump to the cab to "control" it though, so I don't know if that is a bullshit rumour or not.
asthenia
Can't find anything else...

A hint for the master hunter challenge; kill 2 cougars with a knife (also works for kill wolves with a knife.)

Using deadeye paint two markers on non lethal parts of the body (front limbs etc.) Once shot the animal should run away, chase after it (on foot should suffice) eventually it'll slow down and you can knife away.

The best place i've found for cougars is north of ManFarlane ranch, just to the north-east of the train tracks in the hills, boars also spawn there too. Also, by the rail bridge in Stillwater I had 5 cougars in a row spawn, although it only happened once, but they are still common there.

i find cougars pretty much EVERYWHERE!! i'm constantly running into cougars, it's a bit much sometimes... i get sick of losing my horse so, i bought a deed to respawn the good one when i need it... it's the hungarian half-bred... the fastest one in mexico...

i haven't gotten that challenge yet though, i still need to kill 3 bears with one shot biggrin.gif... and i haven't unlocked elizabeth yet so, who knows when i'll get that challenge completed... i am kind of stuck with that challenge until i open up the rest of the map... but thanks for mentioning that boars spawn up above macfarlane's ranch because, i need to kill and skin 5 of them for a different challenge...

I also mistook this challenge, I thought you had to actually kill three bears in one deadeye shot, so I roamed around for 10 minutes until I had 4 following me, then placed about three targets on each one. Afterwards I didn't get the completion message, it was then that I realised you had to kill three bears with one shot each. It's easy, just shoot em' in the eye. The next one is shoot two hats off and disarm two people - easy.
asthenia
Aaaah, one shot each sounds fair enough. I'ma get straight on that shit when I get home! .... and I've played the game enough to get to West Elizabeth.

yea, the emphasis is on the word "each" in the challenge menu... kill 3 bears each with one shot... hopefully i can unlock west elizabeth tonight and get this challenge done with... and i hope i have some luck in chasing down the boars too...

here's a tip, when you kill a cougar, STAY ON THE LOOKOUT!! they always travel in pairs biggrin.gif...

You usually hear them before you see them, cougars are much harder to kill IMO because of their speed, grizzlys lumber along and take a while to reach you. Anyway off to finish the Professor's missions.

wow, you must have great luck then because, most of time, cougars get my horse before i even hear them... the ones i tend to hear before i see are the ones chasing down a random ped or chasing down dinner... the ones hunting me are never herd from until it's too late biggrin.gif...

So i'll just post the treasure locations that I remember, quite a few in Mexico I stumbled on by accident just after gaining access to it.

Treasure 1 - The Hanging Rock - between the large rocks. (Easy)
Treasure 2 - Rio Bravo, Del Lobo Rock - at the top of the ridge above a small shack, as indicated by the sketch you must descend the cliffside and find the treasure along the narrow path. (Moderate)
Treasure 3 - Tumbleweed - In the basement of the mansion, you'll do a mission for Seth there and also a side quest. (Easy)
Treasure 4 - Rio del Toro - heading west along the path by a tree to the left of the road, look for a low wall to and you'll find it.
Treasure 5 - Crooked Toes - Not far from the savehouse shack you get when entering Mexico, it's quite a unique looking rock so you shouldn't miss it.
Treasure 6 - Can't remember the area name but the arch is quite a prominent feature on the landscape, the treasure is buried under it on the northern side of the arch.
Treasure 7 - Diez Coronas, Roca de Madera - Find the rock and head east behind it until you find the ridge, continue east along it and you should find the treasure. (Moderate)
Treasure 8 - West Elizabeth, Broken Tree, not too hard to find, just head for the tree and you'll find it. (Easy)
Treasure 9 - Nekoti Rock, at the top of the path in the cave. (Easy)


I've done all 10 but I can't remember another one. confused1.gif
