I believe it depends on the animal.

 

For creatures that you're going to hunt - there's four actions to do. 1) Study, 2) Track, 3) Kill, 4) Skin or Collect. Each of those is worth 25% total progress, and you'll have to do all four to get 100%.

 

I believe for most of the birds, and some small creatures (e.g. the crab) there's no tracking option, so it's just 33% each for studying/killing/collecting.

 

For domestic animals (dogs, cats, chickens, goats etc.) that are just going to wander up to you and stare at you blankly - hunting isn't really a challenge, so for those animals it's just straight 100% once you've studied them.

Awesome thank you that makes a lot of sense.

It gets them to stop, I think. It might annoy people though, no one likes being shouted to stop for no reason by a stranger.

Get closer to the horse that you want to cut loose from a wagon. (I assume this is the scenario in which it pops up)

Where are Bison at outside of the Great Plains?

Another question, when I stay at an Inn when I wake up it tells me new journal entry? What does this mean? There's nothing new in Arthur's journal.

I found some before to the right of Flatneck Station.

No, I don't believe so. (I've killed quite a few and had no visual indicator if they are dying out or anything)

What's the point of explosive ammo?? Ok it's a one shot kill but you can do that with any gun and with any ammo if you head shot and it ain't that difficult with dead eye

Now let's look at all the downsides

- I haven't actually tried this but I assume that it automatically ruins pelts. Can't get any good hunting kills with it

- Requires a recipe to craft

- Requires animal fat and from what I understand you can't buy it from anywhere. Only acquired by hunting it yourself

- 1 explosive bullet requires also 1 express cartridge which are more than potent already

- you have to craft the bullets one at a time so if you want to craft 60 for example then it will take you around a minute to do it

 

Why would anyone bother with this. It's beyond impractical to craft these. I guess you can have a little fun with explosive bullets but it gets old quickly

Maybe it's a sign of things to come. Can't wait for online tryhards with dual wielded explosive revolvers

Yes i can confirm it ruins pelts. Animal fat is a pain to get as you get one from a boar/beefy animal. Possibly get more from other animals but only get 1 generally.

 

Personally I think the explosive bullets are sh*t as well.

In an interview with some Rockstar head honcho just prior to release it was indicated that animal numbers will dwindle if you go postal on a herd. (I think the effect is just temporary though)

Whats up with the prostitutes in hotels? Sometimes when i speak with them they ask me if i want to have a good time with them. And the only options i can choose are: decline, reject or aim weapon

Haha, i had a similar theory. Im average good guy/ bad guy. Maybe when im all bad guy/ criminal my moral allows me to go ahead with them.  But that would be weird, cause good guys also like or should be allowed to visit prostitutes..

Curious, I'm reading elsewhere that we only need to study/skin 50 of the animals to pop the trophies.(Wasn't that keen to aim for these, but here I am, itchy brain and all, lol).

 

Plus the 18 bear attack survivals too seems to be off too.

 

Just wanted to confirm if it's 50 animals or all. As I've survived 21 bear attacks and that hasn't popped yet, and if it is only 50 animals, they too didn't and I'm passed 100 now.

 

Don't mind it being all 178-odd animals, I'll enjoy that hunt many times, but the info is inconsistent and as my bear trophy is blank, so worth a check if anyone knows more or has confirmations.

 

Appreciate any insight guys. :)

For 100% you just need 50 animals. For the trophies you need to hunt ever single animal in the game, 178 of them. The skinning trophy only applies to the animals you can skin, which is about 80 of them. Hope that clears it up.

Awesome, thank you for this.

 

The 100% 50 animals in the completion page is checked off. And it makes full sense to be all animals too, plus it's the aim anyway, lol. Just wanted to be sure.

 

I have read the the Guarma animals aren't necessary, I've past it now, but plan another run, so they'll pop one day. And those bear attacks aren't gonna bore me for a while. Those are fun. Thanks again. :)

Nope the Guarma animals are not necessary at all but it'll look good having it show all animals on the list lol

 

Forgot to reply to your bear question, you need to actually kill it while it has you pinned down; just in case you didn't know that either. 

It's not get pinned then and kill it in the same fight, it has to be all in one motion.

Cool. Definitely getting those parrots and snakes. (Got 2 saves).

 

I have no clues how to do that. The bears attack me, I stab them a few times and when the game let's be have my gun in hand, 3 shots and done. That's what I was doing, lol. 

 

Oops. Back to school. Thanks dude.

So you're killing them while you're still pinned? Or are you killing them shortly after getting back on your feet?

If it's the first one then you probably haven't reached 18 kills yet then 😛 because that's the correct way.

Yeah, I let them run at me, take me down and after I've stabbed him/her I'm on my back when shooting. Then I get up to skin them. (The bear drops to the floor before I'm fully standing too). Good to know I'm on the right track though.

 

I've done 21 currently, though maybe a forced encounter once might not count towards the trophy but will in the stats. But I'll get a dozen more tonight.

 

It's great fun though and I'll pop back tonight with more news either way, finding them is easy and its early days yet so if more have troubles, we'll soon learn more if so there too.

 

Thanks for this time though. Greatly appreciate the info.

I came and went a couple times, camping nearby until one showed up, I jumped on it and left, no wanted, no one yelling 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hey it's me again! Lol

 

Just realized if you go to the social club website, log in and check the trophies section of the game it actually tracks down all of them based on your gameplay. For example it shows I'm 96% done with the animal tracking trophy and 11% on the bear trophy! It will definitely help you out

not exactly a gameplay question but I was going to see exactly how long ive been playing this game and I cant find a stats page? You know like in GTA or Bully or RDR1 where they tell you how many people youve knocked out or how many times you ran someone over on a bicycle or whatever? Did R* actually get rid of stats? im going all over this menu and the closest i can find is the stuff from the compendium.

no. pls R*. do not do this to me.

Awesome! I'll check that in a mo.

 

I didn't even think to, I've downloaded the app too but just been either busy IRL or playing. :)

 

88% done there. Should just mean 2 or 3 needed. Thanks again for that.
