now i'm not one to "toot" my own horn, although, there's nothing wrong with a little tootin' every now and then... but i just created a guide today for the challenges in case anyone needed any help with them... there's 4 challenges and 10 levels to each... this is required for 100% completion, and it also unlocks the legend of the west outfit by completing all tasks so, check it out if you get stuck on one of them...

Awesome job. I have screenshots of all of the treasure maps which you could add in there too if you like.

Eh, I had no trouble with any except sharpshooter level 10, which you've already helped me with. wink.gif I'd like to say it again, using deadeye will reload your weapon each time, but it doesn't seem to affect the challenge conditions as there's no reloading animation, it was this that initially put me off trying to complete it.

And i'd say the survivalist challenges are actually harder than the treasure hunter ones (I finished those first) due to the amout of time required roaming around looking for the plants themselves.

Treasure hunter challenges were easy once you got a feel for the maps, the first one was actually difficult as i'd only been playing a few hours when I got it, then it clicked, a rock + a noose = The Hanging Rock - Duuh! The one in Rio Bravo was probably hardest, all the rest I stumbled upon after entering Mexico within minutes of each other.

I'd have to disagree. I did those ones first. Once you know where the plants grow, they're easy to find because they're all you'll find in that area. It's just a pain having to travel there, but the survival maps definitely help you find them quicker.

I agree with Psy. Once you know what area they are in and have the map, all you have to do is ride around collecting. I've got the timing down for dismounting my horse and sliding right up to the plant for picking in a single motion.

Great guide bones.

I printed out the last few challenges that I need. Pretty straight forward, I just need to unlock the third area to complete them!

did you forget that you can use a survivalist map to make it a whole lot easier?? laugh.gif... i find roaming around for specific animals takes a lot longer than it takes to spot flowers...

I finished them all online before I'd even unlocked Mexico in SP. Done them all in both now.

By the way bOnEs, I uploaded all 9 of the treasure maps:

The only hard one was the second one, mainly because I kept sliding down the cliffside when I didn't want to. The ones after that (especially the last two) were painfully easy.
Hardcore Ottoman
Yeah, the second one was a bitch. I used my horse to do it in the end.
bOnEs
thanks psy, i'll put them in a little later... i got to find the misspellings again too biggrin.gif...

For Sharpshooter - Rank 8, do you need to disarm the same person you shot the hat off of? Because I've been disarming people left right and centre, and haven't got the bar past 50%... disarming the same person as the hat i shot off is the one thing i haven't tried yet. Do you have to literally shot the gun or the hand/arm? because I've shot peoples arms, shoulders, hands and their guns have fallen out of their hands, but still no luck. I even tried doing a duel, this didn't work ether...?


/Edit

DW, i ended up standing upstairs in the saloon in Armadillo with my sniper rifle. And I precisely aimed at the gun and didn't harm the person, and it worked.

Rank 10 is hard, even with cheating with dead eye. I'm trying to find six people nearby without doing a hideout and it's hard. I may just have to keep trying at hideouts.
