How the West Was Won is a gameplay achievement and a trophy in Red Dead Redemption.

Description Edit

Reach the top rank for multiplayer experience.

Tips and TricksEdit

The player must participate in enough multiplayer activities and game modes and accumulate experience points to reach level 50. One of the fastest ways to accomplish this in Free Roam is by attacking Gang Hideouts. How many points earn depends on how many enemies killed (and whether or not chaining the kills). Some "XP Rich" gang hideouts include:

(Please note that the Title Update 1.01 cuts down on the experience players can earn from gang hideouts.)

Pike's BasinEdit

The basin is large, but with a horse it is easy to traverse, and should be finished in under 10 minutes, and the somewhat scattered enemies can be killed relatively easily. One player completing it usually nets nearly 2000 XP.

Twin RocksEdit

Due to the large amounts of enemies clustered in a relatively small and open hideout, Twin Rocks can be cleared quickly and efficiently by a single player. The clustered enemies also allows for large chain kills, further increasing the amount of XP you get. Twin Rocks can be cleared in less than 2 minutes. Two experienced players can clean it out in about 45 seconds, earning roughly 500 XP apiece (assuming they get the Cleaned House bonus, which is easy with 2 people).

Tesoro AzulEdit

Tesoro Azul is another hideout that can be cleared relatively easily (with the only possible difficulty being reinforcements throwing in Fire Bottles and firing from a distance). The hostiles inside the hideout are spaced close together, directing the fight to close quarters and alleys. In this hideout, keeping the women alive will also net the player extra XP.

Fort MercerEdit

One of the best places to go, as clearing it by yourself will net a player at least 1000 xp and takes about 5 minutes to complete.

Solomon's FollyEdit

The PS3 exclusive hideout can be cleared within 1 minute with practice and will net the player around 750 XP.

Double XP WeekendEdit

Occasionally, the official Red Dead Redemption website will announce double experience points weekends, meaning that anything that gets you XP (kills, challenges, gang hideouts, etc...) will be doubled. Check the official website for any news.

Triple XP SessionsEdit

Even more rarely, Rockstar will do 2-hour triple XP sessions. The first of these took place on Tuesday, February 15, 2011 from 2pm - 4pm Eastern. These triple XP blocks are extremely secretive and will only be only announced via Rockstar's Twitter and Facebook pages, which players will have to actively follow to get the announcements. If players want updates on when to expect Triple XP or Double XP, it is advised to get on Facebook and Like Rockstar Games.

Quadruple XP WeekendEdit

There has been one quadruple XP weekend so far, beginning at 12:01AM Eastern on Friday July 1st, 2011 and running until 11:59 PM Eastern on Monday July 4th, 2011 to celebrate the 4th of July weekend.

TriviaEdit

  • The name of the trophy/achievement is likely a reference to the classic western film How The West Was Won, released in 1962.
  • The player does not have to pass into legend to complete this.
