Liars & Cheats DLC - Trophy Guide
Banner By FootballPsycho
-Estimated trophy difficulty: 4/10
-Overall number of trophies: 10
-Online: 6 3
-Approximate time to 100%: 6-12 hours
Complete the Explosive Rifle Single Player Challenge
Note: If you have the Undead Nightmare disc, you have to get Master Exploder in the Undead Nightmare campaign so the challenges are slightly different. Thanks SylarTheNinja for the info.
This is just like an ambient challenge. It can be viewed in your Journal. Go into your Journal in the Start screen and then click on Challenges. There are 5 levels for the Explosive Rifle Challenge and you start them by buying the Rifle from Blackwater from the Gunsmith.
Explosive Rifle RANK 1
The prices for the Rifle will differ depending on what Treasure hunting Challenges you have completed and how high you Honor is. For Rank 1 buy the Rifle from the Gunsmith at Blackwater for:
Good Guy --- 5,000
Neutral --- 10,000
Bad Guy --- 15,000
Explosive Rifle RANK 2.
Kill five enemies who are covering with the Explosive Rifle. Go to Gaptooth Ridge hideout and shoot any enemies you see using cover, it doesn't have to be one after the other. You can miss three times in a row and still get the Rank up. If you are still missing some enemies the Gold Mine has more than enough people in cover.
Explosive Rifle RANK 3.
Get three kills with 1 shot with the Explosive Rifle. The best way to get this Rank is to Hogtie 3 enemies and carry them over to each other in a circle and shoot them all at once with your explosive rifle.
"Alternatively, go to Tumbleweed Hideout. Kill all bandits in the town but one. Mount your horse, kill the last bandit and hurry to the mansion. Take cover behind the stone fence, wait for the first bandit to open the door and then shoot. This is how I unlocked it." Thanks Simonp92
Alternative method: Go into the bar in Armadillo and just shot the floor in-between the gang members that are always sitting in there, make sure there are at least 3 members. They shouldn't do anything until you get one shoot off, by that time they should be dead. Thanks: AlexAnswer
Explosive Rifle RANK 4.
Kill 2 wild animals with 1 shot. This is pretty easy, use some bait in the outskirts of Armadillo, head over to Tall Trees or anywhere you can find a good amount of coyotes. They usually come in packs of 5 or 6, so if you use the dead eye on those little bastards you can complete this challenge easily.
Explosive Rifle RANK 5.
Kill an enemy with the Explosive Rifle while wearing the US Army Uniform. First, obtain the US Army Uniform. You unlock the US Army Uniform by completing the mission "An Appointed Time". To earn it, complete those tasks:
All DLCs Can be done in a Private match
In A Van Down By The River
In a Multiplayer Poker game, win a hand on the last card when you were losing prior.
"You have to be losing the hand at the point that there are only four cards on the table ("The Turn") and then have the fifth card change the outcome, making you the winner. As a quick example, if you had a pair of Jacks and someone else had a pair of Kings after the Turn, you would be losing (obviously). If the River is a Jack, giving you three of a kind and the win, the trophy is yours." Thanks OnuosFan
This trophy can be easy or a pain, since you never know how the cards will come out on the table. It may take a few tries before obtaining this bad boy. What I suggest is to play a game in a public match and play as normally as you would. When the last card pops up, it's either a miss or hit for this trophy. Keep playing and you will eventually get it. See Pa-Pa-Pa-Poker Ace for tips on how to play poker.
In a single Multiplayer Liar's Dice game, successfully make a spot-on call
It's easier to call a spot-on when there are less players at the table. This is mostly based on luck, but comes around often if you trust your instincts. I got it a few times in the two times I played. Wait until it’s your turn and when a set number of dice are called, hit to call it spot-on.
If there are two or three people at the table and it comes around to your turn and the last die to be called is three dice with face 4, it's more likely to be a spot-on if you have that same number in your hand. When someone says there is three of something, it just means there may be a minimum of three dice with a face of 6. If you see something like six dice with a face 4, it's mostly likely to be a bluff with only two or three people at the table. The trophy is based on the amount of dice on the table for you to make the best call.
If you are boosting, just ask the person you are boosting with how many of a number of the dice he/she may have and call it spot-on. The trophy will pop up a few seconds later. Please see the One Die to Rule Them All trophy for info on how to play Liars Dice and a link to the Boosting Thread.
Escalera: -$10 Buy in
Casa Madrugada: -$25 Buy in
Thieves’ Landing: -$100 Buy in
One Die to Rule Them All
In a Multiplayer Liar's Dice game, win with only one die left.
This is easy too and without boosting this is based on how well you play until only you and one other player are left at the table. Just play as normal and try not to lose dice until after your foe has one or two dice left. Start making wrong calls so you lose dice and get to one dice left. Then on your turn, if the other player calls your call wrong, just change it up every time to confuse the other player.
So for example, if it's your opponent's turn and he calls a die that you don't have (ex: he calls one die with face 1 and you don't have a 1), call the spot-on. If he is telling the truth, you will win and get the trophy (he can lie and the spot-on will go wrong, it's all a matter of luck).
If you plan to boost this trophy, then please use the boosting thread: LINK
Note: this trophy can be done in a private match.

From Glue to Mon Dieu!
During a Grand Prix, finish a race after placing last in the previous race.
Press go to the bottom of the list of games and other things to do and head to the Grand Prix. The races range from 3-5 and are easier to do with just one other player, but if you end up with more just lose the first race and win the next. You can kill other players and pick up their weapons. There is no auto-aim, however, so it may get tough and they can shoot back. As long as you come in last the first race and place first in the race fight after the trophy will pop.
If you are in first place, try not to look back, because it will be harder to control the horse. When you are in first, it’s harder for you to get shot. Use the button wisely and whenever there is a straightaway. This is one of the easier horse racing trophies, since all you have to do is win once after placing last and if you join a public match with just one person it should be no problem. Check Triple Crown for Horse Racing tips.
Legion of Boom
Get a triple kill while on the attacking team in Stronghold.
This is a harder trophy, since you are playing against live players and don't know where they will end up. If you happen to come across a group of players in one place and have an Explosive Rifle, shoot them and this trophy will pop. This trophy is easier if you are boosting and have a stick of Dynamite in your possession.
Mostly likely if you are playing in a Public Match, your enemies will be guarding the Dock, so if you get there without getting caught and throw a Dynamite which kills them (before you die), you should obtain this trophy. Try not to run when going to blow up the opposing team, because your icon will pop up on the mini-map and the other team will be able to see it.
The easiest locations to get this trophy are Thieves' Landing by the second safe (using Dynamite) and Fort Mercer (using the Cannons).
"The attacking team in Stronghold starts with a stick of Dynamite each time you spawn." Thanks PuppetShoJustice
"The Explosive Rifle can be found in safes throughout the Stronghold maps in competitive modes." Thanks oOoOo
Put the Posse on a Pedestal
Attain over 50,000 posse points in a single Free Roam session
You can join a posse that has already started earning points in a public free roam and the points will still help you earn the trophy. You can also form a posse of 8, but you don't have to earn points together, just while in a posse. For example, half the people can split from the group of 8 and do Hunting Grounds while the other half can go and do Gang Hideouts. Just stay in a posse and don't break it. Hunting Grounds are black circles with 2 white circles inside and Gang Hideouts are black circles with a white bandit face and hat.
If your teammate leaves or gets disconnected, your posse’s points will drop and you will only be left with just the points the remaining player(s) have. When the disconnected player joins again he will start off with 0 points.
If you get 50,000 points and you invite other players to your posse they will get that trophy too, as long as they have the DLC and you still have total posse points of at least 50,000.
To do this with 2-3 people, form a posse and go to Solomon’s Folly where you can net about 500 or more posse points in about a minute. This trophy will take around an hour and a half to obtain with 2-3 people.
A better method if you have a bigger posse, 5-8 people. The trophy will be obtained in less than an hour if you achieve more posse points. The narrator will alert your posse to your progress. He will announce when you reach 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 and then after you reach 50,000. He even announces your individual points.
There are two ways to check your stats: while in free roam right after the Hideout you are doing has ended and the stats page pops up, and when you are not in a mission.
1. When you finish a Gang Hideout, hold and the points will pop up with your score and the players in your posse; next to the posse leader will be the total posse points.
2. After you complete a Gang Hideout or Hunting Ground, you get the personal stat screen that says Total XP, and press to get the posse points for that run, that is your score toward your posse points + what your posse gets.
In a full Multiplayer game, beat the table when the blinds are at maximum
This trophy can be a pain. The best way of obtaining this trophy is to start in a public/private match with 6 people you know or with a total of 6 randoms. You don’t have to end with 6, Just start with six people/Members. People tend to quit right after they lose and Rockstar knows that, so they only want you to start off with six. When you start the game and have 6 of friends at the table, 4 of them can leave and go to another room if they don't want to stay.
Also, the game tends to freeze with the maximum amount of people at the end of the poker game so that is why I advise you to start with six and have 3 or 4 people quit, then go ahead and start letting those big blinds raise to maximum.
Wise Words For Boosters: Fold, fold, fold. When the big blinds are at max, the player not going for the trophy folds until the game is over and the player going for the trophy wins. Please use the boosting thread, if you plan to boost this trophy: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/red-dead-redemption/48652-trophy-boosting-thread.html
This trophy can be done in a private match with friends. You have a daily allowance of 200 dollars; if you earn more than 200 in a day, it will not reset your total back to 200. Getting to maximum blinds takes about 25-30 minutes and varies on where you play poker at (see list below). Thanks TheNukes & Blessorship
Macfarlanes Ranch: - $10 buy in - Big blinds max out at 64.
Armadillo: -$25 buy in - Big blinds max out at 192
Theives Landing: -$25 buy in - Big blinds max out at 192
Casa Madrugada: -$50 buy in - Big blinds max out at 320
Beechers Hope: - $100 buy in - Big blinds max out at 640
Blackwater: -$100 buy in - Big blinds max out at 640
Here are the possible card combinations (from best to worse)

Get first place in all races in any Grand Prix
Please use the boosting thread, if you plan to boost this trophy: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/red-dead-redemption/48652-trophy-boosting-thread.html
This trophy can be done in a private match with friends. As stated before, there are a range of 3-5 races in various places in Red Dead Redemption; winning all 3-5 in one place will grant you this trophy. Just win the races. They can be a challenge if you don't boost, but you can just kill all that get in your way and win each race.
For boosters, form a group of two in a Private Match and let one person win each race back to back. Each Grand Prix has about 3-5 races and they are chosen at random.
Tips for races:
While on defense, do not allow the attacking team to capture any of their objectives.
As the title states, don't let the attacking team capture any of the Objectives. I would advise staying back and killing all that come to the Dock, Flag or any of the starting objectives until the mission is finished and you switch over to the attacking team (if you start out on defense).
Each Stronghold mission is about 3:30 to 5 minutes. There are 2 different stronghold difficulties, Stronghold that allows auto-aim and Hardcore Stronghold that has free aim. I advise going for this trophy in a causal Stronghold match if you are not boosting.
Map tips for non-boosting:
Escalera: Stay behind the building north from where you spawn first. Don't cover, just hide behind the wall and kill everyone that approaches. Roll behind the wall again if you are taking too much shots.
Thieves' Landing: Cross the bridge in front of where you spawn, head right and take cover/hide behind the corner in a way you can see the flag. PS. There is a blind spot behind you in the opposite corner, can be solved if a friend stays there as you stay in the stop you are at.
Blackwater: The hardest one. The flag doesn't have too much cover spots near it. Your best bet is to stay behind the building in front of the train station, facing the flag and the enemies spawn camp (up the mount).
For boosting, best doable in a Private game with a friend. Start a two player Stronghold match. Do nothing until time expires and the defending team gets trophy. Team swap occurs, do nothing again and the other players get the trophy. Thanks PuppetShoJustice for the Boosting tip.

The attacking team in Stronghold starts with a stick of Dynamite each time you spawn. So you don't -need- the explosive rifle to get a triple kill.
"We Must Protect This House" is best doable in a Private game with a friend. Start a two player Stronghold match. Do nothing until time expires. Defending team gets trophy. Team swap occurs. Do nothing again. Other player gets trophy.
Done in just a few minutes no sweat.

Its the only map thus far I've actually seen this trophy earned the legit way on.
|September 21st, 2010, 05:56 PM||#9|
Okay I see and it will be added, when i get a chance to try it out.
Its also based on your teams mates, so even if you do this legit, you are going to need the boosting thread.

Good Job Godchild! And fast to!
Oh, and thanks for the credit, but i'm sure there are easier ways to it than my method.
One more thing: The Legion of Boom's description is very pointless, since you talk mostly about The explosive rifle being in Free roam, when the trophy description clearly says et a triple kill while on the attacking team in Stronghold and not free roam. And just to make it easier, as the attacking team you start out with one piece of dynamite, and I think it might be possible to get this trophy if you kill 3 defenders with one shot from a cannon too.
