On the level with the exploding dynamite Boss, sneak
around and hide so that he does not see you. Note: Bongo music
will play when he is on your tail. Then, shoot him with the rifle
in the back. This surprises him (the game will say "You surprised
him!"). Then, power on through with as many shots as possible
to get his life down. Repeat the hiding routine, then sneak shot
again. Do npt use combos, as they do not really effect him much.
Just power on through with single shots; because the first one
stuns and the successive ones hurt him. Also, when he is on your
tail and is going to blow you up, do a sidestep or one of those
rolls to get out of the way. The area with the low cement walls
works well if you duck down.
You can also climb on top of the roof of the house in the center
of the village, then climb on top of the shack. From this point,
you can stand there and not worry about being hurt by the dynamite,
and the Boss will not be able to see you. He will keep walking
the same path repeatedly. This makes it easy to "surprise
him" several times to kill him.
Climb up on the peak of the shack. Stay on the highest point of
the roof. He will soon start attacking, but you are too high and
out of range of his dynamite. Every time he attacks, the explosion
blows him back. Shoot him in the head and chest with your rifle.
It is easy to wear him down this way without using your health.
When your rifle runs out of ammunition, use your pistol. He will
be done for good.
Defeating Bad Bessie
Before the mission, select a bought sawn-off shotgun,
and a revolver. You will have to kill most of the enemies in the
level with the revolver, so it may take some time. Use the "cover"
([Square]) ability often. After you approach her "cabin"
on the left is a big rock, go behind it and stand, Do not use
"cover", but face the opening where she runs at you
with the shotgun. When she comes around the corner, get two good
shots off then run up to her and use the melee attack ([Circle]).
When she runs away, reload. You may have to use Deadeye a few
times, but it should work. Note: Along the edge of the cliff is
a ledge below. It contains a chest hidden in a cave that has health.
There is also another one slightly earlier in the level, in a
When you get to the end of "Bad Bessie", step up to
the level that she is on, turn around, and step back down to the
level you started on. Back up slightly and wait for her to come
down to where you are. She cannot do anything but stand facing
the step. Stand back and keep shooting her in the head to get
maximum points and take no damage.
Use the repeating rifle and six shooter. Before going up to the
level that Bad Bessie is on, stand behind the rock on the right
and shoot all of her men. Then, run over to the shed on the left,
not the outhouse, and jump on top of it. Stay as close to the
highest edge, and face the lower ledge. Wait for Bessie to approach,
or try to approach. She will do a lot of running around, and most
the time you will not have enough time to get a good shot at her,
until she climbs on to the shed. Each time she climbs up you will
be able to put a lot of head shots into her. You can get a few
shots into her from the top, but you are better off waiting for
her to come to you. While you are on the shed, and after Bessie's
health gets to about the halfway mark, the big boulder thrower
and a few other henchmen will appear to your left. Keep watching
for them and shoot them as soon as you can.
You will need full Dead Eye for this. In the room with
Sam, take care of the three men at the start. The one on the left
will drop some health. After this, the big red curtain opens up,
and two girls will attack you, along with Sam and everyone else
up above you. If you get lucky, something will happen to the girls
immediately and they will die. After they are dead, only shoot
Sam. Pay no attention to the other men up there with him. When
he picks up a barrel, shoot him as much as possible. If done correctly,
he will have half of his health when he jumps down to your level.
Once he is down there, continue to only focus on Sam. Stand behind
any of the four poker tables until he begins to charge at you.
He will ram himself into the table and become stunned. While he
is stunned, use a Dead Eye on him. Do this with the other three
tables. He should now be either dead or almost dead. if you still
have a Dead Eye, wait for him to look at you, then use it. Otherwise,
just shoot him until he dies.
When Sam jumps down to the ground floor, stand behind a table
whenever he charges at you. After all four tables are cleared,
wait for him to begin to charge, then jump onto the stage. He
will hit the stage and become dizzy. Shoot him and he will eventually
Lure Sam up onto the stage, then jump down under cover from the
shooters above. Sam will become stunned in the stage lights, leaving
him open for some easy shots. If he comes out of it, just repeat
until he is dead.
Note: This trick may require some practice due to the fact that
you must have good timing and quickness. You may occasionally
run out of tables. When this happens, all you can do is shoot
him while he is charging at you wildly. To avoid this, when he
runs into a table and is stunned, starting punching him. He loses
a lot more health than when charging wildly at you and is being
shot. If you can, punch him in the back so that he will not be
facing you. This gives you even more time to hit him and bring
When fighting Sam, stand directly in front of the stage. When
he charges you, jump on the stage. He will run into it and will
be stunned. You can fire away. Continue this until he is dead.
To kill the majority of Bosses, use height to your
advantage. There is more often than not a location where they
cannot get to you and will stay in range.
Freak Show: Extra health
After completing the Freak Show level, where you fight
Professor Perry as Jack Swift, he will be in Brimstone. Keep talking
to him and eventually he will sell you a maximum health upgrade.
Hell Pass: Extra money
When you are playing as the Buffalo Soldier, you can
shoot the driver of the wagon in the head as much desired and
it will not kill him. Each time you shoot him, you will get $8.
You can intertwine this with killing the Indians and get massive
When you are in the mine where you have to find the
keys, once you unlock the cell door with the woman in it talk
to her twice. She will sell u a kiss for $1.
The Mine: Extra revolver ammunition
On the mine stage look for a revolver. It will give
you 915 bullets for the revolver.
Railroaded: Diegos train
There are multiple ways to complete Diegos train, however,
this is more convenient and safer then using the gatling gun that
the traveler brings across the plain. As you start, kill all of
the men in the first compartment, but be careful of the canon
on top. Do not stray too far from the train. Then, detach the
back compartment. Next, get back on your horse and go forward
to kill all of the men in the next compartment and the man in
the compartment with a locked door. However, do not unlatch the
compartments, which is what the lever there does. Instead, get
back out and shoot at the steam engine. Because you killed everyone
and did not unlatch the compartments behind, no men on horseback
will arrive, and no one will be shooting at you except for the
canon. However, as long as you do not stray too far from the train
itself, you will be safe. You must shoot off all its armor, and
shoot it by thirds (it will blow up three times after all its
armor is off).
Rogue Valley: Extra money
After meeting the prospector, he will lead you to a
cave with two villains. After killing them, the prospector runs
outside only to be shot by two snipers. If you kill the snipers
before they kill the prospector, he will drop a money bag worth
$1,500. To save him from dying, kill the villains in the cave,
then run outside before the prospector can and kill the snipers
Stagecoach: Extra money
When you are riding the stagecoach filled with TNT,
fire as many times as desired at the head of the driver. He will
not die, and the stagecoach will not take any damage. You can
rake in as much money as desired. Hit him as many times as you
can between firing at enemies until the mission ends and you will
earn a serious bonus.
