Complete the following achievements to unlock Xbox Live Gamerscore points.

AchievementHow to unlock

Complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding Avatar Award.


Enter Dead Eye mode when you are low on ammunition. Your ammunition will be restored without the need to reload.

Get 100% game completion (all challenges, side-quests and items) to unlock the Bureau Uniform. When worn, local law enforcement and bounty hunters will ignore you.

When you purchase a newspaper always check the bottom right for the codes. There may also be others throughout the paper. Enter the following codes to activate the corresponding cheat function. Note: Enabling cheat codes will prevent the game from being saved and will not allow achievements or trophies from becoming unlocked.


Give the nuns money whenever possible. Attaining maximum honor and fame may help. A nun will eventually approach you. She will tell you that she and the other sisters have been gathering items to help your righteous cause. She will give you a cross that makes enemies less likely to hit you with bullets. Note: You must remain honorable for this to remain in effect.

Note: The entire process takes place while the player is under the palace with the following glitch. Travel to Escalera. There is a palace at the top surrounded by cement walls. Enter through the doors. Note: Only one set of the doors work. Enter the palace and turn left. You will see a potted plant in a corner next to a bookcase. Get behind the plant by either jumping over it or walking behind it. Face the bookshelf and crouch. You should fall through the floor; if not, spin in circles while crouched until it happens. If you end up in some random room with no doors or windows, you will be stuck and must kill yourself to be freed. Once under the palace, you can shoot through the walls but no one can shoot back. To leave the glitch, simply walk out of any of the "walls." Attain a bounty of $1,000. Maintain the public enemy pursuit for ten minutes of real time. Make sure the Mexican army stays on you for that period of time. Wait for the pursuit to dissipate. Let the pursuit die out to unlock the achievement.

Play in online Free Roam mode. Find a gang hideout and kill all the enemies, as well as the reinforcements that appear. Loot the bodies to get money and ammunition, then leave the hideout. After a short amount of time the enemies will respawn, allowing you to repeat the process as many times as desired.

When you are herding, stand far back and just ride very slowly. The herd should follow the person in front of the herd.

When you're breaking a horse, be it for a mission or your own personal amusement, to avoid getting thrown off the horse simply move the left analogue stick left and right repeatedly, ignoring what the game tells you to do. The horse will buck around a bit more than usual, but you'll end up breaking it successfully without the massive aggravation of doing it the standard way.

Find one of the bird shooting challenges. They are usually easy to find; just listen for shots and watch for a lot of birds circling in the sky. Accept the challenge and intentionally lose. The wager will then double. Repeat this until you have just enough money to make one more bet. Then, watch the sky and wait until you can see the amount of birds you need to win the bet. Accept the challenge, then go into Dead Eye mode. Take down the proper amount to win. Note: It may help to have moonshine or chewing tobacco in case you run out of Dead Eye. After you win the bet, put on your bandanna and kill the man you bet against. Loot his body and he will have the same amount of cash as the final wager. The more money you have to work with, the more you can make. It is possible to loot over $20,000 from him.

Once you obtain the lasso, find any herd of wild horses. Lasso and break one. After the new horse is broken in, return to a hitching post and hitch the horse. Then, return to your bunk and save the game. The horse is now yours and will come to you when you whistle for it.

Kill every person and animal in a town to have it marked as a "ghost town". Check the population sign at the town's border to check your progress. The town will remain empty for the remainder of the game. Note: Wearing the Bureau Uniform while doing this is recommended.

Go to Thieves' Landing and buy the elegant suite. Go in the saloon and play poker ($25). Get caught cheating by pulling the arrow to one side. You will have to duel someone.
