We Become Legendary Sharpshooters in Red Dead Redemption

How the west was gun

Now we're hot on the trail of Dutch in a race against the clock to save our family, we thought it would be the perfect time to wander off an do some of Red Dead Redemption's sharpshooting challenges. This week, we kill bears with a single shot, shoot hats off heads, and disarm our many enemies. Will we achieve the coveted rank of Legendary Sharpshooter? Watch on to find out.

On discovering I lost my Red Dead Redemption saves, we resolved to reclaim my 100 percent complete status by replaying my favourite game of the last generation - whetting our appetite for Red Dead Redemption 2, which is coming out in Spring 2018, into the bargain.

The trickiest challenge here is the final one, which asks us to disarm six enemies without changing weapon or reloading. This sounds ok, until you realise that activating deadeye automatically reloads your weapon, and resets your counter.

We're not about to try disarming people without using deadeye, of course, and so resort to more cunning means, like we assume a true cowboy would have done.
