The [at] replaces the “@” symbol. This is used by many guidewriters to
discourage spambots.

This guide is dedicated to the Xbox 360 version of the game, because of the
use of an Achievements section. This section can be discounted, although it
provides a quicker alternative to finding a Trophies section in a guide should
you stumble upon this guide. Nevertheless, the rest of the guide can be used
and is applicable to all versions of this game.

This guide has been taken from my "Game Of The Year Edition" walkthrough for
"Red Dead Redemption". It follows straight on from that guide. All basic info
will NOT be repeated in this guide.

The other DLCs (Legends & Killers, etc.) are NOT covered in this guide. This
is purely focused on a DLC that has brought an alternate storyline.

1.      About The Writer

My name is Daniel Graeme (or Graham) Stephen, otherwise known on GameFAQs as
DG-le-Ste. I am only 18 years old, but I have a number of years of GTA gaming
under my belt. Say what you want to say, but there are millions of kids that
aren’t even 13 playing “Grand Theft Auto” games. This is what I think is a
simple fact, but I‘ll leave the arguments to you. This is a guide, not a

Anyhoo, I come from the northeast of England, but with strong Scottish roots.
I was originally born in Aberdeen, in the northeast of Scotland, until my
family moved to the northeastern English town of Middlesbrough when I was very
young. Most of my lifelong friends are gamers, and that includes me, and so we
are a strong group when it comes to opposable thumbs.

You could say GTA is my specialty. I grew up going on mad rampages on the
comfort of my games console whilst playing as Carl Johnson or Claude Speed.
Because of my childhood memories mostly being of this game series, it has
inspired me to write these guides.

I have studied subjects such as Law and Politics to a high level, which does
require very good reading and writing skills. I have honed these skills into
my guides.

I started writing these guides in the summer of 2012, during the very start of
my gap year before I went to university. This gave me a lot of spare time, and
thus many of my guides have come to be.

I would go into my private life, but this is unnecessary. So, instead of that,
we’ll get under way.

If you need another GTA guide, or any other guide, here is a list of what I
have written:

>> "Grand Theft Auto: III" Walkthrough
>> "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" Walkthrough
>> "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" Walkthrough
>> "Red Dead Redemption" Walkthrough
>> "Red Dead Redemption: Game Of The Year Edition" Walkthrough
>> "Saints Row" Walkthrough
>> "Saints Row 2" Walkthrough
>> "Saints Row 2" Multiplayer Badges Walkthrough
>> "Saints Row: The Third" Walkthrough

These guides can be found easily on GameFAQs, as this is where my content is
originally posted. Some other guides may be harder to find, but it is possible
I had posted the guide on another website due to a gaming website's guide
getting oversaturated - what that means is that there are too many mainstream
guides. So you may find some of them scattered around the gaming website world
for that reason. I didn't really need to go too in-depth with it, but here you


2.      "Undead Nightmare"

As Rockstar pulled off a Wild West thriller, they added to it by pursuing
something they hadn't really pulled off before - a zombie and pseudo-
apocalyptic game.

"Undead Nightmare" is a parallel to the main story of "Red Dead Redemption",
beginning after the death of Dutch van der Linde and John's return to his
family. Survival is key in this game, as you are playing to save John's skin -
sometimes quite literally.

New missions, new side content, new enemies and new features await you. The
basic aspects from "Red Dead Redemption" are still there, so it isn't a
complete seachange.


3.      Changes

There are a few major changes that are brought on by this new game:

Money, Fame & Honor

All of these systems have been removed for the game. Hence there are no shops
to buy consumables, items, or ammunition. Ammunition for your weapons will be
scarce throughout the game, so you must conserve what you have. The Honor and
Fame system become useless in this game anyway, plus you cannot get a Bounty.
You can do anything you want without the game punishing you, set from
attacking someone and having to face off with angry survivors.

Fast Travelling

You cannot set up camps in this game. However, the Fast Travel system remains
if you go into a Safehouse. You can only travel to towns that you have saved.

Undead Animals

Zombification has not only affected the general population - it has also
affected the wildlife, too. Birds are replaced by bats, and most animals are
replaced by an undead form. Undead animals can only be killed with a shot to
the head.


4.      The Undead Horde

Most of the people roaming around the Western Border States are now undead -
either infected, or have risen from their grave. There are four types of
zombie that you may fight.


The most common zombie, Fresh Undead are your typical zombie and are the
weakest form. They will chase you at a steady speed. A shot to the head will
put one down.


Now, these ones are bastards - they come at you at speed, on all-fours and
low to the ground. Getting a killer shot without Dead Eye is an achievement
in itself, and they are able to pack some damage if you cannot dispose of them
quickly enough. Again, all it takes is a shot to the head.


Built like a tank, Bruisers are slow movers, but they can take a beating. They
can also give you a beating - they pack a punch and leave you open to attack
by other zombies. A few shots to the head will put them down. They are the
hardiest of zombies.


These ones prove to be the most dangerous - they will spew a corrosive venom
at you, which can harm, and gives them a ranged attack. When killed, they will
explode in a poisonous cloud, which harms anyone in its radius - you and the
zombies. Glowing green, these are easy to distinguish.

Prepare yourself to face off against each type as you progress through the


5.      The Storyline

The game's storyline is short and sweet, but packs in more content required
for 100% Completion.


5A. "Love In The Time Of The Plague"

As John returns on the wagon to his home, all is normal - Jack is dug into one
of his books, and Abigail is settled. Uncle, however, is nowhere to be found.
After supper, everyone goes to bed.

However, Uncle bursts in, with an almighty bloodlust. John runs to fetch his
gun, but during this time, Abigail is chased outside and bitten by Uncle. You
must put Uncle out of his misery, and then hogtie Abigail and Jack as they
become zombified. The plague begins - John places the two in the bedroom, and
he boards up the house.

You are advised to ride to Blackwater. You can save in the loft of the barn.
Head to Blackwater to continue the storyline.


5B. "Curious Tales From Blackwater, USA"

Upon riding into Blackwater, you must head into the town to see if you can get
treatment for Abigail and Jack. The place is deserted and ruined, with
messages such as "The Dead Have Risen" and "God Save Us" scrawled on the side
of buildings. John will meet MacDougal on the main street, who has apparently
returned to do more research. He is looking for Nastas - and finds him,
unaware of his undead form. He is bitten and infected. You may kill them both
or simply run away from them.

You must begin searching for survivors. In the Tailors, you will find the
niece of Mordecai Robbard, a man buried in Blackwater Cemetery. You are given
a torch, and you must go up to the cemetery and burn the designated coffins.
You must fight off any undead that rise from their graves, and eventually face
off with Mordecai himself, who takes a Bruiser form. When he is dead and the
rest of the undead are cleared, head back into Blackwater.

The next part is an introduction to Saving Towns, which we'll leave out until
we reach Mexico. You must help the survivors fight off the undead that are
flooding Blackwater. Once you have done that, go speak to another group of
survivors. A family taking refuge on a roof do nothing but squabble and do not
really help. Another group of survivors, who plan to take over this land when
the undead are cleared, pin the blame on a man with a glass eye and another
man selling elixir - no rewards for guessing that these men are Seth Briars
and Nigel West Dickens.

You can do a number of things now - you can go about saving towns across the
USA, go to Seth or West Dickens, or whatever you want. We have unlocked some
side-content, though.


5C. Survivor - "Birth Of The Conservation Movement"

Head to Tanner's Reach to begin this. A man is shooting into the distance,
protecting himself from the undead onslaught. He screams about sasquatches and
the wives' tales that surround them. He asks John to go around Tall Trees and
hunt them down.

You must kill six Bigfoots. They will be marked on the map as a circle
somewhere in Tall Trees. They are all timid and will run away, but can be
killed with a couple of shots to the head. Hunting down the last one takes you
off the path leading into the east side of Cochinay.

John comes face-to-face with the supposed "last" sasquatch. They are not how
they are portrayed through wives' tales - they prefer berries and mushrooms
over small children, and are a fairly intelligent and very gentle race. This
one, a male, weeps, believing he is the final sasquatch living, and pleads
with John to put him out of his misery. This finishes as John regrets his
actions. The Survivor task is complete.

You may shoot and kill him, or leave him. You may find sasquatch occasionally
when roaming around Tall Trees.


5D. "Get Back In That Hole, Partner"

This is started with Seth, stationed out at the Old Bacchus Place. It's funny
to see how the undead accept him as one of their own, considering he's bound
to stink like death with his capers. His old friend, Moses, is his own pet
zombie. He's heard of the "glass eye" rumor circling around. Seth seems to
think that everything will "fade away" if John was to clear out a few of the
graveyards in New Austin. With nothing else to go on, John sets about it.

There are three graveyards that you must cleanse to fulfil this mission -
Coot's Chapel, Odd Fellow's Rest, and Tumbleweed. This is the same deal with
cleansing the Blackwater graveyard in "Curious Tales From Blackwater, USA".
The bosses are supporting characters from the main game who you may recognize.
They are no harder to kill than Fresh undead. When you have cleansed each
graveyard, go back to Seth.

Seth has built up his own band of undead friends, still passive to him and to
John. It's clear that the zombie apocalypse has had its effect on him, and his
scheme hasn't done much to thin out the undead. John has grown sick of him,
but his angry sentiments don't have any effect. After swallowing his glass eye
and nearly choking on it, Seth lets slip that it may have to do with one of
the previous tribes - either Aztecs or Incas. John, knowing that's all he'll
probably get out of him, leaves Seth.


5E. "A Cure For Most Of What Ails You"

Nigel West Dickens can be found at Fort Mercer, now a haven for survivors to
protect themselves from the undead horde. He is still playing the swindler
game, selling tonic that is supposed to ward away the undead - in fact, it has
the opposite effect. John is quick to judge West Dickens for his actions, but
the stuff can be used as Undead Bait. West Dickens then requests Desert Sage
and Violet Snowdrop for his next "miracle cure". Desert Sage is found in and
around Gaptooth Ridge, and Violet Snowdrop in Aurora Basin and the surrounding
area of northern Tall Trees. You are given three Survivalist Maps to make the
search much quicker.

Bringing five of each to West Dickens allows you to create a Phosporous
Coating for your bullets. This will set the undead target up in a blue flame
before dying. After saving him from a Bruiser, John is asked to go to Riley's
Charge to search for "parts" before he can get a hold of "serious weaponry".
Conducting a search in the appropriate area will find the parts and bring you
back to West Dickens for one last time.

West Dickens hands John a Blunderbuss - despite it's ridiculously poor
stopping power, it will work a charm against Undead. West Dickens advises John
that he should find a crossing into Mexico. Apparently, all is well south of
the border. West Dickens says he can be found at Benedict Point, trying to
figure out how he can get across a closed border.

You will be able to create Undead Bait with Wild Feverfew and Prairie Poppy,
Phosphorous Coating with Desert Sage and Violet Snowdrop, and ammo for your
Blunderbuss by collecting enough Undead Parts, which can now be looted from
Undead corpses.


5F. Survivor - "Missing Souls"

Heading back to Fort Mercer begins another Survivor task. Here, John watches a
man put up a poster - thinking it is a Wanted Poster, John jokes about the
situation to the man. He takes this to heart and is offended, because it is in
fact a Missing Soul Poster. He advises John that he help track down anyone who
may be missing.

Pick up the Poster as you would a Bounty to track down the Missing Soul - in
this case, a girl named Millicent Waterbury, last seen at Pleasance House.
Fight off the Undead that have her trapped, and then get her back to Fort
Mercer. You will have to fight off the surrounding Undead to be let in and
finish up.

This Survivor task will give you the Semi-Automatic Pistol and ammunition.


5G. Missing Souls - Fort Mercer

The Survivor task "Missing Souls" introduces you to this side-mission. This is
identical to Bounties in the main game, but there is obviously a marked
difference - you are saving lives rather than taking them.

There are always two steps to a Missing Soul side-mission - rescue the person
from the Undead horde surrounding them, and then fight off the Undead flooding
outside Fort Mercer to get them back in.

Your reward each time is ammunition for your weapons. You can only do these
once - after taking care of all Missing Souls, you are finished with them.
They're not replayable.

There are nine Missing Souls to rescue, excluding Millicent Waterbury, who has
already been saved. They are listed in alphabetical order:

>> Adrienne Lachance
   Location: Armadillo Saloon

>> Chu Fook
   Location: Gaptooth Breach

>> Grover Boone
   Location: Venter's Place

>> Mintie Cummings
   Location: Riley's Charge

>> Orison Pratt
   Location: Ridgewood Farm

>> Silas Gaskell
   Location: Critchley's Ranch

>> Willie Oats
   Location: Plainview

>> Willis Lassiter
   Location: Benedict Point

>> Winona Picket
   Location: Lake Don Julio

These Missing Souls reward around the same amount of ammunition as you're
bound to be using, if not less, but it's good to get out of the way before
heading on to Mexico.


5H. "American Imperialism"

John will find West Dickens at Solomon's Folly, laid waste, warming himself in
front of what's left of a hearth. He doesn't have a passage into Mexico for
himself, but he has an idea of how John can get over the border. The U.S. Army
are set on taking a train across the border from Benedict Point. John can pass
as a soldier quite easily, and so he'll have to set about getting a uniform.

Head to The Scratching Post to find a few soldiers who have abandoned their
fellow men, not wishing to go into Mexico. A chest with a U.S. Army Uniform
is located near the campfire - you may help them defend their position, or
leave them to it. Once you have the Uniform, make your way to Benedict Point.

West Dickens' plan is beginning to work, but a certain point of the Undead is
what stands in your way of getting across the border. You must fight them off
from the train whilst stationery - stick on the train so you don't get swarmed
by them - and then as you move on. Preserve your ammunition as much as you can
(as you must have done up to this point).

With the border still blocked and the undead advancing, you must cut them down
and not allow them to get too close to the blockade. Once it's cleared, it's
back on the train and smooth sailing to Mexico.

It's funny to see how Mexico is near enough in the same state as the USA. You
can now go about...


5I. Saving Towns

I left this one 'till Mexico for one reason - "Spinnin' Plates". This is the
Achievement requiring you have all towns saved at the same time. This is also
required for 100% Completion.

Saving a town thins out the Undead to the outskirts of the settlement, and
allows you to Fast-Travel to that location. There are a few statuses that a
town will go through.

-- Safe: Symbolized by a blue cross on a black background. This town has been
         cleansed from zombies. You can go about the settlement safely and you
         can Fast Travel to the settlement.
-- Under Attack: A white hand on a green background. The zombies are starting
                 to flood back into the town. You may think about going back
                 and fighting them off.
-- Overrun: A white hand on a red background. The town is no longer safe, and
            will need to be cleared out. Some survivors will be fighting them
-- Lost: A red cross on a black background. All the town's survivors have
         succumbed to the onslaught. You may fight to control it, but you will
         not be able to save anyone, and you won't have protection.

A town can go from Safe to Under Attack in 72 in-game hours. This gives you
three in-game days to save all the towns and get the Achievement. After a
certain amount of time neglecting a town under attack, it will become overrun
and will eventually be lost.

There are twenty of the main settlements to save - four in West Elizabeth,
eight in New Austin, and eight in Nuevo Paraiso. Some of the Survivor tasks
require you to save a town before you can begin it.

You will need to kill undead to fill up the meter. You must fill the meter a
certain amount of times before you can finish off the last of the undead and
save the town. You can loot ammunition from chests and give some to the
survivors in the town to provide you with covering fire. They are usually
positioned in smart vantage points, and you may want to stick near them.

Pull off the best possible shots and make sure that you conserve your ammo.
In turn, saving a town may give you a bonus - saving some at the first time
rewards you with a weapon (such as the Bolt Action Rifle for saving Cochinay).

A town can be saved and go through the statuses numerous times - a town is
never truly safe. You may have to act quick to get all 20 at Safe, but if you
keep moving and make good progress, 20 all at Safe is not such a tall order.


5J. Survivor - "Paternal Pride"

After saving MacFarlane's Ranch, you can reunite yourself with Bonnie. She's
very happy to see John, with the ranch now safe. Drew has been drawing the
undead into the barn to thin them out in the open, but he hasn't come back for
24 hours. Things don't sound too good, so John decides to investigate.

You cannot enter the barn from the correct entrance. You will have to take the
climbing route (from "The Burning" mission in the main game") and then make
your way down to the ground. Upon investigating, Drew is found - zombified.
Put him out of his misery. It is then up to John to give Bonnie the bad news.
She takes it better than expected, knowing that he died with some nobility.


5K. Survivor - "Dinner For Two"

After saving Armadillo, head to the Sheriff's Office to find Marshal Leigh
Johnson alive and well. He's holding his own, even with a shift from catching
outlaws to killing zombies. The situation is dire - Armadillo is vulnerable,
the ammunition count is low, and Jonah and Eli are nowhere to be found. The
Marshal asks John to search for them.

Head over to the General Store to speak with its owner, Herbert Moon. John
realises how much of a bastard this man really is in his rant - blaming it on
different races and religions. He is soon taken down by the undead and is
bitten. Take out Moon and the undead, before heading over to the local Livery
to carry on the search. You find Jonah and Eli, ripping shreds out of each
other, both infected. Deal with both of them, and report back to the Marshal.
He's glad that they both went out quick, and John gives him Jonah's Sawed-Off
Shotgun. The Marshal hands it back to John as a reward for his efforts.


5L. Survivor - "Filth And Other Entertainment"

After saving Plainview, head to the campsite area to meet D.S. MacKenna, the
Hollywood "big-man" from the "Lights, Camera, Action" Stranger Task in the
main game. He has a plan to use the Undead in his favor after losing control
of his last project - to create a film out of this madness. He already has a
zombie hogtied, and wants a zombie that "spews vemon".

A Retcher is what you're looking for, and you can find one easily in Gaptooth
Ridge. Take out the rest of the pack around them before lassoing and hogtying
them. Bring it back to MacKenna, and watch poetry in motion. Unfortunately,
the zombies turn and infect MacKenna. Take care of them before you go on your


5M. Survivor - "Biographies And Lies"

You can go straight to Casa Madrugada, one of very few major settlements that
is not overrun by zombies. Upon arriving, John discovers the reason behind
this - Landon Ricketts is residing here. He seeks an effortless way to fight
off the zombies. He requires Undead Bait and Dynamite.

Undead Bait can be obtained and created following the mission "A Cure For Most
Of What Ails You", requiring Wild Feverfew and Prairie Poppy to create. To
obtain Dynamite, you must save Gaptooth Breach or El Matadero to obtain it.
When you have both, head back to Ricketts to watch his creation in action -
Boom Bait. You will now be able to leave Ricketts in peace, and be able to
create Boom Bait with Undead Bait and Dynamite.


5N. Missing Souls - El Presidio

All bases are covered in this guide from the variant in Fort Mercer. This is
exactly the same deal as it was in New Austin, set for different people and
different locations.

There are only six Missing Souls to save:

>> Lydia Morales
   Location: Las Hermanas

>> Merche Coronado
   Location: Casa Madrugada

>> Porfirio Gutierrez
   Location: Roca de Madera

>> Rafael Carillo
   Location: Agave Viejo

>> Ramon Alvarez
   Location: Torquemada

>> Santiago Valenzuela
   Location: El Matadero

And that finishes up all side-content for now. It's a straight run to the


5O. "Mother Superior Blues"

John pays a visit to Las Hermanas. One of the mothers is fighting off the
undead horde, but this settlement is different to the others - being a convent
filled with sisters, they have understandable objections to killing undead.
You will have a long and drawn-out objective ahead of you - to save Las
Hermanas. Stay above ground and pick them off as they come. Some may make
their way to the upper level, but it's highly unlikely that you'll be flooded
by them.

After a long toil, head back to Mother Superior. She has seen the mayhem of
the rising undead, but seems mostly unaffected by it, choosing to fight. She
seems to think it has something to do with one of the old civilizations - an
angered Aztec God, or something along those lines. A "supernatural cause", she
pins it down to. She asks John to get her one of the undead to conduct some
tests on it.

Any undead is suitable - a Fresh one from around the way will suffice. After
John lays the zombie down for Mother Superior, she uses Holy Water on it. It
seems to be saved, but soon returns to its undead state. So, it's something
supernatural. John is given the last of the Holy Water and is ordered to clear
out Sepulcro.

Clear out the graveyard. The Holy Water can be used to stun the undead, making
them easier to pick off. Fight off the Undead and the "boss" before heading
back to Mother Superior. She thanks John for his help, and enlightens him on
the cause of the plague - apparently down to the fault of Abraham Reyes, for
angering an ancient goddess. John must seek Reyes to continue his journey.


5P. "A Civilized Man"

Regardless of clearing out Escalera or not, heading into the settlement to
begin this mission means that the place will already be cleared anyway. Upon
entering, you find Reyes - he's infected, too, and he's tormenting a girl in
the dining room of the villa. Put him out of his misery.

It seems that this girl knows what's going on - apparently, Reyes has stolen a
mask that has caused this plague. John is incensed, thinking it's just another
rumor, but this is meant to be true. He is convinced after opening Reyes'
chest to find a mask. He decides to pay a visit down into the royal burial
site to return it to its rightful place.

The entrance to Escalera Catacombs is a shaft at the bullfighting ring, and
you must fight your way past a scattering of Undead in your way. As you head
down, you will encounter more Undead. The mission becomes difficult because
you are fighting multiple enemies at close range in an enclosed space. The
Torch works well enough for Fresh, but a good old-fashioned firearm is advised
for the rest. Be wary of those that pop out from the ground.

John comments on this fairly strange woman - you will soon learn that her name
is Ayauhteotl. The woman is an incarnation of an Aztec goddess, whose mask has
been stolen. All "she" wanted was the mask returned to its rightful place.

Enough of the facts, though - fight your way further down into the Catacombs
until you reach the end of the Catacombs. Here, you must fight off the Undead
in this area as they come in waves. You are sealed in this area, so make use
of as much ground as you can in here. Upon fighting off the Undead in their
droves, John is able to place the mask back to where it rightfully belongs.

The cutscene resumes at Beecher's Hope, as John returns to his family. They
are now back in their normal state, and everything is fine. However, we then
see Seth get into the Catacombs to steal the mask, meaning that the hordes
will rear their ugly heads once again.


5Q. "On A Pale Horse"

With the storyline of "Red Dead Redemption" running its course, we see John's
grave. He rises up, now one of the Undead. This mission is simply the epilogue
that polishes off the game.

You are rewarded the horse Death, and John has risen as half-human, half-
Undead. This means that Undead will not attack you if you keep your distance,
but survivors will treat you the same. Other side-content is still available
to complete, but all Outfits not required for 100% Completion of the game
cannot be unlocked.


5R. Undead Ambient Challenges

Ambient Challenges have been adjusted for this game. There are only five
levels to complete for each one, and both Tomahawk and Explosive Rifle Mastery
must be completed once more. If you haven't earned the Achievement for them
from the main game, you are able to complete them in this game.


UAC1. Undead Sharpshooter

We are testing our shooting skills against the horde of the Undead.

>> Rank 1 - Shoot and kill 5 Undead in 10 seconds

This is easily achieved with a large group of zombies and painting headshots
whilst in Dead Eye.

>> Rank 2 - Headshot 10 Undead in a row

Again, this one is pretty simple. You should get into the habit of headshots

>> Rank 3 - Kill 5 flaming Undead in one Dead Eye meter

You are advised to get Fire Bottles from saving Thieves' Landing. This makes
this Rank a tall order, as you need to find 5 Undead in close proximity to
each other to pelt them with the Bottle, and then enter Dead Eye and kill them
before they succumb to the fire attack. However, Phosphorous Coating on your
bullets count for this. So, build the coating, go to a place where you have a
height advantage - Fort Mercer or El Presidio works fine. Get the kills in
quick and make them count.

>> Rank 4 - Kill one of each Undead in one Dead Eye meter

Firstly, you need to find a place where each type of Undead will spawn. The
best place is El Presidio, as they gather at the gates. Try and get them all
in one Dead Eye Meter and that's it.

>> Rank 5 - Score 5 sniper rifle kills in 8 seconds without using Dead Eye

The Rolling Block Rifle can be obtained by saving Pacific Union R.R. Camp. It
sounds like a very tall order for the inexperienced shooter, but execution
shots do count. Running up to a scattered pack of several zombies is the best
way to go about this. El Presidio is a place that spaces out the hordes pretty

Completing this Challenge will earn you the Carcano Rifle and the Mauser


UAC2. Four Horses Of The Apocalypse

These will put your Horsebreaking skills to the test. There are four of them
to find somewhere in the Western Border States.

Each Horse captured has unlimited stamina, and normally a special perk. Either
way, the Horses are pretty unique, and it is worth capturing them set from
100% Completion.

>> Rank 1 - Find the Mythical Horse in West Elizabeth

At some point whilst travelling through West Elizabeth, you may encounter the
Mythical Horse, Pestilence. It is found most commonly in Tall Trees as opposed
to Great Plains. The Horse has no special perks.

>> Rank 2 - Find the Mythical Horse in New Austin

At some point whilst travelling through New Austin, you may encounter the
Mythical Horse, Death. It can spawn anywhere in New Austin, and doesn't seem
to have a preference to any area. Try searching in the west, where it is much
more sparsely populated, with a small scattering of settlements. Death will
set anyone in flames if they come into contact with it.

>> Rank 3 - Find the Mythical Horse in Nuevo Paraiso

At some point whilst travelling through Nuevo Paraiso, you may encounter the
Mythical Horse, Famine. Again, this will spawn anywhere in the province, so
you want to choose an area that is more barren and less populated. Famine has
no special perks.

>> Rank 4 - Find the Mythical Horse, Death

Death can spawn anywhere, at any time, throughout the Western Border States.
Therefore, he is much harder to find. If you finish the storyline, which will
reward you with this Horse, you are rewarded Rank 4 in that way. So, either
finish the storyline, or have luck with finding it as you go about your
business. Death will automatically kill anyone that it comes into contact
with or is trampled.

>> Rank 5 - Kill one of each Undead with Death

Utilize Death's special perk to do this. This is best done in Jorge's Gap, a
route to the southeast of Odd Fellow's Rest in Cholla Springs, New Austin. The
route is teeming with Undead and is an ideal place to do it. Failing that, you
can try El Presidio, where each type of Undead will spawn more freely.

Completing this Ambient Challenge will reward you with the Blood Pact (the
Horse Deed) to each Mythical Horse.


UAC3. Undead Treasure Hunter

Good ol' Treasure Hunting returns in this DLC. The rewards are different, but
it's more or less the same. Rewards are ammunition and other amenities that
have become very rare, such as Chewing Tobacco.

>> Rank 1 - Acquire a Treasure Map and find the Treasure

Again, this one comes from a Random Event. Find an Encounter that involves a
person at a settlement with a chest, and you may loot it from there. Otherwise
you must utilize the Random Events to get the Map.

The Map, still showing how cryptic these things are, will show the Treasure's
location. Head north from MacFarlane's Ranch into a gap into the northern
mountain range, and the Treasure is located right at the end of it. Just go as
further north from here as you can and you should be led right there. Your
reward is some ammunition and the next map.

>> Rank 2 - Find the Treasure in New Austin

You are shown a ranch house and the Treasure located underneath a tree on the
edge of a cliff. The ranch house is Venter's Place, and the tree can be seen
in the distance to the east. The Treasure is still difficult to find, so you
must search the area for it. It is one of the most difficult to find, but once
you have found it, you're set. Your reward is more ammunition and the next

>> Rank 3 - Find the Treasure in New Austin

Head to The Scratching Post, and look for two large rock spires. They are seen
and can be approached from the northwest. Your reward is more ammunition and
the next map.

>> Rank 4 - Find the Treasure in Nuevo Paraiso

A cemetery with grand momuments - the only place to narrow it down to is
Sepulcro. Head to the two trees, standing out from the area to the south, and
find the Treasure at second pair of trees from here. Your reward is more
ammunition and the final map.

>> Rank 5 - Find the Treasure in Nuevo Paraiso

The Treasure is found at the base of the cliffs that look over Casa Madrugada
on its north side. I managed to pinpoint it between the railroad tunnel and
the settlement itself on this outcrop. Find your way onto it and carefully
scour the area from there. Your reward is more ammunition, and completion of
the Undead Treasure Hunter Ambient Challenge.

You do not receive a reward for Rank 5, but the Ambient Challenge provides you
with valuable consumables and more ammunition, greatly welcomed in this game.


UAC4. Undead Hunter

The Undead Hunter Ambient Challenge is one that will be completed over the
course of the game, as the first two ranks are progression through the game by
covering your own back.

>> Rank 1 - Kill 100 Fresh Undead and 25 Bolters

As Fresh Undead and Bolters are the most common types, this Rank is easily
achieved. If you don't complete this rank through the storyline, just go out
and hunt the Undead down.

>> Rank 2 - Kill 25 Bruisers and 15 Retchers

Bruisers and Retchers are more uncommon, but you don't have to hunt down a lot
of them. Again, this comes with storyline progression and it shouldn't take
much hunting to whittle down the target total.

>> Rank 3 - Kill 2 Undead with a Retcher explosion

As explained earlier, Retchers will explode in a green toxic gas that harms
both John and the Undead if in close proximity. Your easiest method is to
lasso and hogtie a Retcher and two more Undead, preferably Fresh.

>> Rank 4 - Kill 2 Bears, 5 Wolves, and 3 Cougars using a Torch

Bears, wolves and cougars take an Undead form in this game. Bears are found in
Tall Trees; wolves are found throughout the Western Border States; and cougars
throughout New Austin and West Elizabeth, more common in Rio Bravo and Great
Plains, near to Beecher's Hope. Use Famine or Pestilence if you have a Horse
of the Apocalypse, as they are near-immortal and won't get taken down easily.
Swipe each animal with the torch and make sure you get the kill.

Rank 4 will reward you with Holy Water.

>> Rank 5 - Find and kill the Chupacabra

The Chupacabra is a legendary animal, and can only be found at random after
achieving Undead Hunter Rank 4. It can be found at random in Nuevo Paraiso.
Despite being a legendary animal, once you have found it by entering its
roaming grounds, it can be killed easily. It may also respawn after completing
the rank, though I have not confirmed this. It is easily found out on the wild
grounds, away from the settlements, so search along the sparse lands of Nuevo

Completing this Ambient Challenge will reward you with the LeMat Revolver and
the Evans Repeater.


5S. Undead Outfits

                   you have killed the Chupacabra for the first time. It is
                   very similar to the Half-Bred and is found in eastern Diez

   Required To Unlock: Complete all Undead Ambient Challenges.
   Perks: The use of Phosphorous Coating on your bullets lasts longer.

   -- Complete Rank 5 of all four main Ambient Challenges, excluding Tomahawk

5T. Undead Encounters

Several encounters unique to "Undead Nightmare" will become available to you
as you play through the game.

Dr. Gunner

You will see a doctor manning a Gatling Gun, mowing down the attacking Undead.
Help him survive, and he may make different requests - capturing a live Undead
or asking for Undead Pieces if you have the Blunderbuss. Your typical reward
is ammunition. After several of these encounters are completed, you may earn
the High Power Pistol.

At One With Nature

Again, a man is defending himself. However, he is also protecting a Sasquatch
from the Undead horde. You can be given any reward, and the encounter can only
occur in Tall Trees.

Guardian Angel

A man or a woman is being chased by several Undead. If you kill them before
they fall victim, you are rewarded ammunition. The Undead tend to be Bolters.


A man or a woman will shout for John. They are stranded, and if you choose to
help them, you must take them to the nearest safe town. Ammunition tends to be
the reward for this.


You may find someone being held at gunpoint by an outlaw. If you save the
victim's hide by killing, disarming or hog-tying the outlaw, you are rewarded
with ammunition.

Trapped Indoors

You may see some Undead scratching at someone's door, with a family inside.
Once inside, you are told not to open a door. If you do, you must contend with
a large group of Undead. If you manage to clear them out, you will find a
chest which will normally contain a nice amount of ammunition and a consumable

A Helping Hand

A man may come up to you on horseback, requesting help to clear out Undead
that has one of his family trapped. Kill the Undead, and inside the house is a
chest with rewards inside.

Still A Gambler

A man will be fighting off the Undead. He will propose a bet to see if John
can kill more Undead. If you manage to pull off this feat, you are rewarded
