What About Hand Grenades?
|Description||Get a ringer in a game of Horseshoes.|
The goal of this achievement/trophy is to strike the stake directly with the horseshoe and have the horseshoe remain circled around the stake. This is not extremely difficult, but requires luck and/or practice to achieve. A ringer is when the horseshoe hits the stake or lands so that it lays like a ring around the stake afterwards.
When aiming, have the stake in the gap right between Marston's middle and ring fingers when zoomed in. This is a good way to align the throw. A full and steady swing, releasing exactly when the power meter hits the middle mark, or a little before, will bring the horseshoe very close. Luck is a factor in getting this right and players are advised to repeatedly attempt this method.
- The name of the achievement/trophy is a reference to the idiom: "Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades."
