Grin and Bear it Trophy in Red Dead Redemption 2
Grin and Bear it
Survive 18 bear attacks and kill the bear each time in Story Mode.
How to unlock Grin and Bear itThis must be specifically grizzly bears. Black bears will not count. A straightforward trophy but can be a little grindy and frustrating to get bears to spawn consistently if you try and farm it in one go so I would recommend that you do this every so often during your playthrough, perhaps at the beginning and/or end of each gaming session.
Before you start make sure you equip a powerful weapon. Either a shotgun or repeater and with express bullets for maximum damage.
The most consistent spawn point is halfway between Wallace Station and Watson's Cabin (click here for a map, courtesy of PowerPyx: LINK). Ride near to this location but get on foot before you get too close. Run around the area and with any luck, a grizzly will spawn. Let the grizzly charge at you and knock you to the ground. As soon as it does, quickly spam the button to fight off the bear. When it climbs off you will be given the chance to shoot it with your equipped weapon. Quickly do so until it dies and you will be one step closer to the 18 required for this trophy.
You must kill the bear in this fashion, where it knocks you to the ground and the button prompt shows for you to fight it off and then shoot it whilst you’re still lying on the ground. Killing a bear in any other way will not count towards this trophy.
If you want to farm these kills, ride away for about a minute after a kill and set up camp. Sleep for a day or two and when you re-load, hopefully another bear will spawn when you ride back. If not, you may want to carry on doing something else and come back later.
