What About Hand Grenades? is a gameplay achievement/trophy in Red Dead Redemption.

AcquisitionEdit

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.

It is far easier to get a Ringer at Rathskeller Fork than it is at MacFarlane's Ranch, because the horseshoe pits are closer together.

LocationsEdit

Horseshoes can be played at Las Hermanas, Rathskeller Fork, and MacFarlane's Ranch.

TriviaEdit

  • The name of the achievement/trophy may be a reference to the idiom: "Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades."
