Full Version: Undead Nightmare, extremely hard challenges?

Anyone else find these challenges stupidly hard? I mean, I had enough trouble with blowing up two zombies from a retchers death, then I'm told to go kill three zombie bears, five zombie wolves, three zombie cougars, with a torch.


a torch.


Zombie bears and cougars. with a torch. Yeah. At this point, I gave up with wanting to get 100%, as I was raging pretty hard from how long it took to complete the rank three undead hunter (exploding retcher). What really annoys me is how you can't do anything else unless you complete the undead hunter challenge. I've read until you get to rank five of it, the chupucabra won't appear, and the unicorn won't appear either until you kill the chupucabra. So I can't see some of the fun stuff/get achievements until I've done one set of challenges!

No thanks rockstar. Maybe when I'm really bored.

I did the bears and courger while on a dead horse. They take a lot of damage. If you have the mythic horse pestilence it shouldnt be hard cause he is pretty much invincible.

Christ. This thread is just putting me off even more from playing Undead Nightmare. It was hard enough the first thirty minutes of regular gameplay.
Kuwong
Yeah it was/is quite hard. I raged a lot at getting thrown off the horse by those damn zombies. I'm not afraid to admit I switched the aiming mode to casual, which always aims at the head in undead Nightmare. It made the game more enjoyable and less of a rage fest for me. Although even then, I still came close to death a fair few times, and did die and have to reload on a few occasions.

Perhaps I need to do that. Is it automatically set for difficult or manual?
Kuwong
I think it carries over from the settings you used in Red Dead Redemption. Or so I thought. Mine was set to normal anyway, which is the middle setting. Could be the default setting to be honest.

I found Rank 3 of the hunter challenge quite difficult... I think it must be glitched because others have had major problems with it as well. I must have 'completed' it 20 times before I decided to see what restarting my console would do, and lo and behold it worked first time.

Killing the bears with a torch is easy. They have so little health compared to the normal bears you just batter them once and run round in circles in Tall Trees until you end up chasing it. Then hit it a couple more times and it'll keel over. The problem I'm having is that I can't find two more fucking cougars.

I've found the undead sharpshooter challenges quite fun so far.

I can't find all types of zombies close enough together to kill them all in one dead eye. fucking gay.

If you sit on one of the cannon towers at El Presidio the zombies spawn right in front of you outside the gates (when you turn the camera away). Just wait until you see four different types in shot and use one of the Repeaters to take them all down.

The ones that run towards you (forgotten their name) look quite similar to the normal undead when they aren't attacking you so they're easily mistaken. The normal undead walk upright, the other ones have a slight hunch. See those two, a big guy, and a glowing guy, hit dead eye and blow them away.
