Rare Weapons are the most elusive and powerful firearms in Red Dead Redemption.

DescriptionEdit

There are five rare weapons in the game. John Marston doesn't happen upon many of these weapons until very late in the game, but when acquired they can be invaluable, despite their often large price tags. They are found in Gunsmith stores around the map and only appear once the player has completed key missions in the story.

All five of these weapons can be purchased for a rather high price (although it may go up or down depending on Marston's honor, and whether or not the Savvy Merchant Outfit is equipped). Obtaining one will award the player with the Exquisite Taste achievement/trophy, while getting all five Rare Weapons contributes to 100% game completion.
