Easter Eggs

  • The Shawshank Redemption in Red Dead Redemption

    To the east of Beecher's Hope you can easily spot a broken tree beside the road with a small weathered stone wall under it. This is also the location where the treasure is buried for level 9 of the Treasure Hunter challenge. The location all but identical to the location Morgan Freemans character goes to to collect his treasure in The Shawshank Redemption.

Area/Level Hints

  • Easy Horse Breaking

    When you're breaking a horse, be it for a mission or your own personal amusement, to avoid getting thrown off the horse simply move the left analogue stick left and right repeatedly, ignoring what the game tells you to do. The horse will buck around a bit more than usual, but you'll end up breaking it successfully without the massive aggravation of doing it the standard way.
