Search the indicated location to find the corresponding hidden treasure. Collect all nine treasures to complete the Treasure Hunter challenge. Note: You should get your first treasure map from a random encounter, in which you save a Stranger from a group of bandits attacking his wagon. The subsequent maps for the Treasure Hunter challenge are located inside each successive treasure chest.
Hidden Treasure 1: Rhodes Gold
Rhodes Gold is located at Hanging Rock, north of Armadillo in Cholla Springs. The chest can be found at the base of the largest boulder, under a pile of rocks in a narrow area, which can be reached by exploring the north side of Hanging Rock and following the narrow path such exploration reveals.
Hidden Treasure 2: Jacksons Gold
Jacksons Gold is located just east of Rio Bravo near the Rio Del Lobo, at a location called "Del Lobo Rock". Find the gap in the rocks at the top of the cliff indicated on the treasure map, and save your game (in case you fall down to the riverbed). Move through the gap, and go to the right. Then, switch back to the left, and hug the cliff face until you can drop down into the shadow of the bulbous outcropping. Look at the map for a depiction of this route. The treasure can be found on a small ledge.
Hidden Treasure 3: Calhouns Gold
Calhouns Gold is located in the basement of the old mansion in Tumbleweed. Enter it using the back cellar entrance on the west side, and walk straight until you reach the basement wall. The treasure can be found below a mounted bull skull on the wall.
Hidden Treasure 4: Tubmans Gold
Travel towards the San Luis River, starting from the Tree Of Skulls. The area is just north of Chuparosa. Proceed until you reach the second stone wall. Tubmans Gold treasure is on the river side of it.
Hidden Treasure 5: Browns Gold
Browns Gold is located on top of the rock spires in Crooked Toes, in Punta Orgullo just east of Escalera. Proceed past the small cave with the chest, and climb to the top of the spire, using a jump, hang, climb maneuver.
Hidden Treasure 6: Douglass Gold
Douglass Gold is located at the Ojo Del Diablo, South of Chuparosa. The treasure is on the west side of the arch.
Hidden Treasure 7: Garrisons Gold
Garrisons Gold is located northeast of Agave Viejo, northeast of Roca de Madera. The stool-shaped rock in the first two treasure map illustrations is just off the main road leading northwest from Casa Madrugada, just above the armadillo on the main map. From the stool-shaped rock, look southwest, and you should see a path that begins just above some rock spires. Follow it to its end to find the treasure.
Hidden Treasure 8: Picketts Gold
Picketts Gold is located east of the ranch at Beechers Hope, near a large tree split by a lightning strike. The treasure is buried in a gap in the stone fence north of the tree.
Hidden Treasure 9: Stonewalls Gold
North of Manzanita Post is a small, snow-covered horse path. Follow it until you reach a plateau, then explore the north side of the plateau until you find a cave. Stonewalls Gold treasure is inside the cave.

Accept a bounty mission. Go set up camp somewhere, and save your game. Capture or kill the bounty target, and return to the sheriff to get your money and +100 honor. Then, go run into some water and die. When you respawn in one of your houses, the bounty mission will still be active, and you will also keep the money and honor you just received for completing the mission. Repeat this as many times as desired.Easy fame and honor
Go to Thieves' Landing, and buy the Elegant Suit. Then, go in the saloon (or any other place with cheap poker), and play poker ($25). Get caught cheating by pulling the arrow to one side. You will then have to duel with someone. Wait for the "draw" sign to flash, then aim at their right hand/arm to shoot the gun out of their hand for extra fame and honor. Note: When you do this, the bullet may ricochet and hit someone else. If this happens, they will start shooting at you. To make this easier, buy the house in town to save the game and stop others from coming after you. Repeat this as many times as desired.Easy reloading
When you are low on ammunition, enter Dead Eye mode. Your ammunition will be refilled without needing to reload.Easy herding
When you are herding, stand far back and just ride very slowly. The herd should follow the person in front of the herd.Easy horse breaking
While breaking a horse, press Left Analog-stick Left, Left Analog-stick Right repeatedly instead of following the in-game instructions. Although the horse will buck around, it will eventually be broken.Easy skinning
Kill an animal, then walk over it slowly, and press R1 to come to a stop over the dead animal. Next, press Triangle to get off, then press Triangle again to skin the animal, then press Triangle one last time to get back on your horse. This is very helpful when you are being attacked by packs of wolves or when hunting grizzlies or cougars.Easy quick save
Change the "Audio" settings in the "Options" menu to force the game to save. Alternately, obtain two different horse deeds. When you want to quick save your game, simply switch horses by using the other deed, and your progress will be automatically saved.Extra horse stamina
While riding a horse, hold X to maintain a slightly slower speed until stamina regenerates. This is helpful when attempting to acquire the U.S. Marshal uniform.Getting a new horse
Once you get the lasso, find any herd of wild horses, then lasso and break one. Once 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 will now be yours and come to you when you whistle for it.Dark horse
Once you become dishonorable enough, your horse and clothes will turn black. However, they will only stay black while you are dishonorable. -From: Calvin AndersonDetermining horse breeds
If you go to the general store, you can purchase horses by buying a deed for them. Instead of buying the deed, check the info, and it will give you a description of the horse's appearance. You can compare this information with horses you break to help determine the horse breed.
Another good way to determine a horse's breed and quality is to break and ride them just a few seconds. You should be able to instantly tell the difference between a 1-star, 2-star, and 3-star horse. The stamina will deplete much quicker the lower the quality, and the horse itself will not run as fast. Physically you can also tell a difference. If you can see any ribs or bones, the horse is low quality, while thicker more muscular horses are the 3-star ones. You can get the 3-star Pearl from the "Bonnie" mission very early in the game. The Hungarian Half-bred is found in Mexico and is an off-white color. The Standardbred Pinto is all black and can be found in Mexico. Other horse breeds that can be found throughout the game are American Standardbred, Ardennais, Cleaveland Bay, Dutch Warmblood, Friesian, Highland Chestnut, Kentucky Saddler, Lusitano, Painted Quarter Horse, Painted Standardbred, Quarter Horse, Tersk, Tobiano Pinto, Turkmen, War Horse, and Welsh Mountain.Map locations
There are a total of 94 locations in the game. 45 are in New Austin, 32 are in Mexico, and 17 are in West Elizabeth. The quickest and easiest way to find these locations are through the maps you can purchase at various general stores. These will unlock all areas in a specific part of the game.Alternate close-quarter kills
Take out a target's legs using a throwing weapon, such as the throwing knives or tomahawk, or even a pistol. Then, get close to them, aim at the target, and press R2 as normal to perform a kill. If done correctly, Marston should perform a special kill for the position of them being on their knees. Note: This works with the pistol, rifle (not explosive), shotgun, throwing knife, and tomahawk. Additionally, this only works with people who have a gun, and they will fire back if given the chance to.Homing projectiles
With a throwing weapon (fire bottle, dynamite, or knife) in hand, enter Dead Eye mode, and try to imagine the normal targeting reticule on the screen. The target will not appear, but it works the same. If you rapidly tap R1, it will be easier. When you release the object (automatic after locking on), the projectile will home in on the target. This is really helpful when people are speeding away on horses/carts. The projectile will keep flying until it hits the target. Try this with a stick of dynamite on birds; the effect is hilarious.Reaching West Elizabeth early
Locate a cliff near the waterfall north of MacFarlane's ranch; it will say "Tall Trees" once you get to the edge. Get arrested at this spot, and you will be transported to Blackwater. To get back to New Austin, quick save the game, and then kill yourself. Note: If you buy the Manzanita Post property, you will have to use your horse to jump the unfinished bridge north of Thieves' Landing to return.Ghost town
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 view your progress. The town will remain empty for the remainder of the game. Note: It is recommended you wear the Bureau Uniform while doing this.West Dickens urinates
Start a mission with West Dickens that requires driving or shotgunning his carriage. When you are a few hundred yards away from the mission's starting point, press Triangle to jump free. Remain idle, and do not get back on the carriage. Eventually West Dickens will jump off the carriage and start urinating.The Shawshank Redemption reference
To the east of Beecher's Hope is a broken tree beside the road with a small weathered stone wall under it. This is also the location of the treasure buried for Level 9 of the Treasure Hunter challenge. This location is basically identical to the location Morgan Freeman's character goes to collect his treasure in The Shawshank Redemption.There Will Be Blood reference
The town of Plainview is a reference to the main character Daniel Plainview, played by Daniel Day Lewis, in the movie There Will Be Blood. Take note of all the oil rigs.Avatar items

The chupacabra is found in different locations, such as south of Perdido, south of Sepulcro, and Casa Madrugada. Undead Hunter Challenge 5 requires you to kill the chupacabra (it will be marked on your map); thus, you must reach Undead Hunter Level 5 before you can kill it.

The unicorn can be found north of Diez Coronas and west of Torquemada (there are three horses painted there on the map).

Note: The chupacabra must first be killed before the unicorn will appear.
Go to the northeast area of the game (Great Plains) once you reach it later in the game. There will be only one pack of buffalos at any given time. Kill all the buffalo in the pack to get the "Manifest Destiny" trophy.Easy "Six Years In The Making" trophy ("Undead Nightmare" DLC)
