Gang Hideouts are areas inhabited by outlaw gangs, found in the wilderness and away from settlements. The player can confront and fight these gangs.

DescriptionEdit

Hideouts in specific areas must be cleared by the player to obtain several trophies/achievements.

In multiplayer, groups of online players can form a posse and complete hideouts cooperatively. Clearing hideouts will earn the player experience points. In multiplayer, however, gang members are much stronger and there are many more waves of them, possibly due to the fact that if one dies, they just respawn outside of the hideout and can just resume as normal. Also in multiplayer, there are high level weapons hidden in gang hideouts for use in Free Roam if you have not unlocked them at your level yet.

In Multiplayer Free Roam mode, if you (or anybody else) don't attack any outlaws in a hideout, you're free to walk in. However, if you start shooting they will retaliate immediately. If your current multiplayer character is in the corresponding gang that is occupying the hideout, you can walk in only so far until the criminals will start attacking. Also, if you start shooting, they will return fire. Jack Marston can earn the U.S. Marshal Outfit by completing all the U.S. hideouts in 24 hours (gameplay time), as this outfit only becomes available after completion of the game.

In Undead Nightmare Gang Hideouts are replaced by cleansing Graveyards. The actual gang hideouts for the most part are home to members of the gang trying to hold out against the hordes, and despite shooting at them on sight in the main game they will be more than willing to accept Marston's help in this mode. The exceptions are Fort Mercer, which has been taken over by the army and converted into a safe zone, Pike's Basin, which is completely abandoned, and the DLC and PS3-exclusive gang hideouts, which are either abandoned or permanently overrun.

  • Gang Hideouts do contribute to the 100% completion in Single Player mode. Each Gang Hideout must be cleared at least once.

Liars and CheatsEdit

The Liars and Cheats DLC adds seven hideouts to Free Roam that are not available with the base game. Upon completion of any of the gang hideouts added by this DLC, an Explosive Rifle is awarded to the top player. It is marked by a green dot on the player's map. Unlike other weapons picked up in Free Roam, ammo crates do not refill it and the player does not get to keep it for the rest of the session if they die and respawn.

Players without the Liars and Cheats DLC can not trigger the hideouts, but can participate in clearing a hideout triggered by another player.

TipsEdit

  • One very effective method can let you farm XP like mad. Its the Fast Assault technique and here is how it goes: First get a fast and tough horse (Hungarian Half-Bred and American Standardbred are best) Then head to a gang hideout preferably with gulches for retreats and then use close range weapons with effective reload times and clip sizes. When you or your posse is read, ride like the wind around the baddies and pound them until they submit or do a risky, but effective shotgun charge at baddies in open areas (like Pike's basin) If you play this right you should get huge amounts of XP in very little time.

PatchEdit

With the release of Title Update 1.02 on June 12th, 2010, Gang Hideout XP in multiplayer was reduced on all consoles to half the amount previously awarded. For example, instead of earning 2500 XP from Pike's Basin, the player would earn 1250 XP. Rockstar confirmed that it was due to players "XP Farming" the Gang Hideouts (constantly replaying the Gang Hideout to earn XP until leveled up) rather than earning the XP by playing competitive game modes or killing other players in Free Roam.

Removing the memory cache on consoles can undo the patch and allow players to earn the original amount of XP. However, Rockstar addressed this as well and removing the patch will set players back to level 1 and all XP gained in a non-patched game no longer transfers over to the patched game.
