  Pony Express

    Tiny Tubbs

First talk to Tiny Tubbs that is at the other side of town. After
that get on a horse and rush to the general store remember you 
have to get off your horse to talk to the shopkeeper also 
remember to spur your horse often but make sure you don't spur 
it too much as you need to deliver the goods back to Tiny Tubbs
with the same horse you can ride it dead coming back as long 
as your close enough to run the last leg. 

    Johnny Calhoun 

First talk to Johnny that is just to the left of where you started.
You need to take his horse (any horse really) to the Livery Stables.
Once you hit the stone bridge jump to your left on the dirt to get
there in no time flat jump off and talk to the man standing in 
the stables.

    Stumpy McNubbs  

First find Stumpy he's where Empires' general store normally is.
Now race along the rail road tracks into the tunnel and long the 
bridge be careful about the gunmen trying to stop you. Jump off y
our horse and give the foreman the supplies.

    The Gunsmith 

First talk to the gunsmith. Now rush to the ranch be careful of 
the gunmen on the road, follow the rail track if you don't know 
the way by now. Now you need to get to Piper lake do get some meds
from the doc when coming back down go to you left and through the 
tunnel once again watch out for the gun men. Once you've got the 
meds you need to get back to the rancher so go back the same way 
another one bites the dust. 


Go find Cletus he isn't in town but all the way in the Empire. 
You need to go talk to some guy over by lake Piper go over the 
wooden bridge and follow the pointer. Now you need to take them 
to Barton head towards the railway and go through the tunnel on 
the right  then follow the pointer be sure not to ride past him 
and drop down as he's just around the bend.

    Markus Billings

Go talk to Markus he's by the path to the port. Now rush towards
the ranch by following the rail track. Beware of the people 
trying to stop you. Now you can run your horse dead as you get 
another one at the ranch. Now get your ass to Empire by following
the rail track, once again be careful of the gunmen and such. 
Now Edgar is outside the bank in Empire which is by the stone 


Talk to Jesse he's just down the road, now you've got to get to 
this lost rider, he's in the mine by the plains that are by the 
ranch, watch out for the gunmen alone the way. Once you get to 
the mines leave your horse outside you get a new one inside the 
mines. Now take it to the miner take the trail in the mountain 
side to get to him and watch out for all the enemies as there 
is a lot. 

    Speedy Pete

You don't even have to deliver anything in this one but you do 
have to break Speedy Pete's record for getting to Dodge. Go 
over the wooden bridge and follow the trail until you get to 
Magruder's mine. Talk to the man there and dart off to Dodge 
following the rail track.

    The Shopekeeper

Head off from Dodge but don't follow the pointer and do to the 
left and go through the first tunnel. They've stolen your horse 
go get it back, Quick-draw them all and get on your horse. Now 
rush up the hill past some more gunmen and archers and talk to 
the man at the top.

    Councilman Webster

Talk to the councilman now follow the rail tracks to find the 
first worker to talk to now take the new horse and ride though 
the tunnel and across the bridge and through the nest tunnel 
and take to the guy next to Magruder's mine, take yet another 
new horse and continue along the track through the tunnel to 
talk to another workman. Next take the new horse and get 
going alone the track jump off and talk to the last workman 
now take yet another new horse and ride it dead into dodge 
to talk to the foreman. He gives you a drink on him, rush 
to the Alhambra and talk to the barman. That's the last 
Pony Express mission completed



First herd the calves into there small pen this is easy do 
as the rancher tells you he behind them to make them run 
forwards and on their left to make them go right an vice 
versa. After that follow the rancher to the plain be careful
not to fall of the cliff he leads you to. Next drive the 
cattle toward the longhorn easy enough yet again. Now 
follow the heard there will be a break away before the 
first fence simply herd the cow back to the main group 
once you've done that another break away in the different 
direction so the same you did with the other breakaway 
and that's the end of that.

Head over to Empire and follow the gully along the side of 
it. Break the pen using your horse's stamp attack then 
just heard them back to the barn and they go most of the 
way on their own yet another side quest done.


Wolves eh? Head on down to the plains but as you can see 
they aren't on the plains but in the hilly parts near the 
mine shaft. As the rancher said there are wolves everywhere 
kill them all using the stamp attack and quick-draw every 
now and again to the larger groups but most importantly 
don't use a shotgun.


On the same side of the ranch there is a gap in the 
mountainside they are in there quick draw the rustlers 
and smash the fence with your horse's stamp attack. Now 
heard the calves into the ranch by using the leads calf.
Mission ended.


Now the rancher will be moving the herd around just to 
annoy you and you have to get three calves into the calf 
pen, it's easy stuff really.


Get a horse and meet the rancher down in the plains with 
the heard. You've got to form the herd like you did in a 
previous mission by getting the cows near the longhorn. 
Once done follow the herd to Dodge but of course things never 
run smooth in the world of GUN, it's an ambush take out the 
guys on the ledges and then go behind to take out the horse 
riders. When you reach dodge there will be a bunch of boxes 
in the way smash them with your horse's stamp attack to clear
 the way now do some gentle herding to get them into Dodge


This is the last ranch mission. Get a horse, meet up with 
the rancher and follow him to Empire. Before the train goes 
past hurry over to the tunnel and quick draw all the horsemen 
and then meet up with the rancher again. Follow him again 
through the gully and that's it for the rancher.

  Bounty Hunting

    George Mahonee

An easy one to start with run to the Alhambra then run 
straight up to him slash him with a melee weapon grab 
him and then knock him unconscious $15 in the bank. Of 
course you could kill him but you would only get $10 so 
what's the point.

    Butch Mainard

Follow the direction on the map but if you want to know 
where he is he's up by the lake. Take out your shotgun 
and make sure you aim low so the horse will take most 
of the damage. Once the horse is dead rush up to him attack 
him with a melee weapon grab him and then knock him out. 
Once again you can kill him a collect a reward but you may 
need that $5 extra

    Johnny Greed 

Track him down using the map take out your shotgun and shoot 
at the horse yet again try to kill the horse as soon as 
possible as if you chase him too far you end up with his 
mates shooting at you as well, if you kill the horse before 
that happens get off your horse and grab him to take him 
alive if no then kill the henchmen and carry on shooting 
the horse of course I'll forgive you if you just want to 
shoot him and save yourself a hold lot of fussin'.

    Shifty Scholz

This one is a little different take out his "boys" with a 
rifle and try to take out the guys on the horses as soon 
as you can and use quick-draw to shoot shifty without 
hurting the horse, you kill the horse mission failed. 
Then there is just the simple matter of returning her 
to the owner.

    Lee Hop Dong

Firstly head towards the lake then up into the river 
canyon, they're on the hill and Lee Hop Dong is just at 
the top beware because they have a gatling gun. Take them 
out with the rifle and make you way up the side of the hill. 
Lee is cowering around the corner so just grab him and 
knock him out to 
collect $20

    Bloody Belle

Head towards the plains towards Dodge she'll appear with 
two henchwomen take out you shotgun and blast her away 
then quick-draw to take out her sidekicks. Don't worry 
about taking her alive, she ain't worth it.

    Toby "The Torch"

First head on over the Dodge as that's where he is Go 
up and talk to Toby. Now quickly before he runs away 
grab him and knock him out. Then go down towards the
bridge and quick-draw the enemies and rifle the ones 
that are coming at you from behind, mission complete.

    Mad Dog McGrady

Found at Magruder's mine that's the place where you 
and Clay destroyed the train. Now remember take him 
alive he's worth nothing to us dead, quick draw the 
henchmen and then take out his horse down jump down 
from your's slash him with a melee weapon grab him 
and knock him out.

    Wayland Payne

Head on over to the ferry man to take you across the 
river. He and his gang are ganging out right where the 
Blackfoot's should be as such they are a but mad and 
they will start attacking them leaving you to either 
use a snipe of a rifle to take them out from a distance 
and then ride it to find Payne. Once found get off you 
horse slash him with a melee weapon and knock him out. 
Do it quickly for the Blackfoot's kill him.

    The Bandit Brothers

The think you must notice straight away is that you 
must kill James but take in Bob alive. I always find 
them to the right after coming across the bridge out 
of Dodge but you may not be starting from Dodge. 
Anyway quick-draw James and kill him straight out then 
kill Bob's horse and grab him in the normal fashion 
don't let either escape. 

    Blackbird Boys

Head towards the plains outside of the ranch. On the 
mountain side the same side at the ranch going towards 
Empire there is a break in the rock that is where they 
are hiding out. Remember you must kill all fifteen of 
the boys so it's a bit harder than other bounties. Rush 
in and quick draw all that are there. Should be about 10 
once you've killed them the rest of the gang will turn 
up on horse back quick-draw those that come through the 
gap and that would be the end of that.

    Bob "The Blade"

You heard the man get to devils canyon the quickest way 
is to go over to the plains outside of the ranch and follow 
the trail in the mountainside, now kill all of the gang and 
Bob will challenge you to a battle of blades well you know 
what to do now slash him with a melee weapon and grab him 
and that's the last bounty you have to do.


Poker is an odd one and there is no real tips I can give
 you as I can't play poker but I still managed to win all 
the missions. All you need to do it take chips from the other 
people on the table, there are 500 chips in all and four 
other people it's easy once you get the hang of it. The first 
three poker tournaments take place in Dodge's Alhambra 
and the other three take place in Hoodoo's house (or is that 
the majors house) in Empire. I really recommend doing the 
missions as early as you can (unlike me who did them at the 
end of the game) as you can't lose money but you can win it 
big time, $50 plus now that's a lot.

  Federal Marshal


Get to the ambush area and get on top of the roof throw 
the dynamite down in the street your best bet it to throw 
at least on at the corner of the street as when the ride 
in they all gather at that corner, do it quickly as it isn't 
much time before they show up. When the do turn up, you'll 
hear them wait for the first one to ride past then quick-draw 
and shot the TNT it shouldn't kill 
them all.


Get over to where the ambush area was in the previous
mission. Get out your rifle and take out those you can 
see and most importantly the one at the very stop because 
he has a gatling gun which will do a lot of damage if you leave 
it until you get up there. Find the ladder to the roofs to 
the north-west side and get your way up to where the gatling 
gun is to find the vaccine


First get a horse and go out to the plains in front of the 
ranch then head towards the hilly area and that's where the 
mine is. Go in with you rifle zoomed and take out the first 
two lurking near the entrance be careful of the TNT (that's 
dynamite) then carry on with to the left still with your rifle 
zoomed and BOOM headshot the two guys hold the first people 
hostage. Also be careful not to shoot the hostages. Next go 
up the passage where two more people are being held you should 
be able to see the first one and take him out with the rifle but 
the other one you need to go around the boxes use quick-
draw and take him out without shooting the TNT or Hostage. 


Get a horse and head over to Dodge but before you hit the 
bridge hang a left and you'll find them shortly. Talk to 
the driver, wait that isn't the driver quick-draw and kill 
him to avoid hurting the lady then kill the other two that 
have now flanked the stage nest kill the people going up the 
hill using a rifle and then the people coming down the hill 
be carefully as a few of them are on horse back. Now talk 
the real driver, clear the boulders but your meant to be 
going the other way. On well run pass the boulder and up 
the hill to find the TNT throw it down and shoot it if it's 
near enough to destroy the boulder. 


Get a horse and head on out to the plains they are under 
attack by the Renegades. Take them our using whatever 
secondary weapon you feel best to use but I feel shotgun 
is the way to go here, if too many settlers die mission 
failed. Eventually the wave's of horsemen will stop.


Go find Wachowski over by the Livery Stables, if you don't 
know where that is coming from where you started go across 
the stone bridge and hand a left and he'll be hiding around 
there somewhere. Next take him to jail, that's the place 
where you where locked up with port but go in the front 
door. However he'll get chicken so grab in and drag him 
into the cell, don't kill him. Be warned as a group of 
guys are walking about now that want to kill him once 
you've grabbed him quick draw to take them out. Now 
there should be three waves of enemies best tactic say 
in the jail house and with a rifle and quick-draw take 
them out from there.


Get a horse and head on over to Dodge as that's where they 
are. They've been attacked by wolves and as luck would 
have it they've come back just as you've arrived. Kill 
the wolves using your stamp attack with the horse and 
quick-draw as many as you can. Once you've killed the 
wolves set alight the hay bails using whiskey bombs. 
That's the last Federal Marshal mission, rather an anti-
climax don't you think.

  Pat Denton


First mission, kill the highway men run to the opposite side 
of town away from the bridge take out your rifle and shoot 
the three highwaymen off there horses from a distance. 
Next stop the poker brawl sneak around to the right hand side 
and throw in a whiskey bomb then pick anybody still standing 
with your rifle. Next head to the barman X marks the spot on 
the map. Then head up town rifle at the ready and pick them 
off. Mission complete.


Save the whore in the Alhambra rush in there quick draw and 
take them out post haste. Then save the hostage by the water 
tower now you can do a few things drive in with a shotgun 
and take out the two henchmen then quick draw a head shot 
avoiding the hostage or quick-draw then all or you could 
use the rifle and take them all out with head shots. Then 
stop the hold up yes you guessed it rifle the first man and 
then drive in with your quick-draw being careful not to 
kill the hostage.


Kill the campfire gang zoom in with you rifle and take them 
out from a distance they only have pistols so no damage of 
them hitting you. Then go down to the docks and pick up the 
TNT you need to deliver this to a building in the main street 
watch out for bad guys and put down the TNT and take them out 
with you rifle be careful not to be hit while holding the TNT 
or you'll be blown apart. Then head east rifle at the ready 
and take out the riders before they can get to you I had a 
problem with the towns folk getting caught in the cross fire 
and they started shooting at me so be careful of that too.  


Go meet the wealthy citizen by the bridge. Now go ahead of 
her and quick-draw the first three hiding behind the barrels 
do back to check on her then go ahead and quick-draw the 
one's hiding in the building take out you rifle and 
take out any the pop up. When she get near the end of 
town a few will pop up behind from boxes rifle them. Now 
go ahead of her and quick-draw those in the building and 
that's the first segment complete. Head over to the Alhambra 
and onto the second floor by the bar. Best thing to do is take 
out you rifle or sharpshooter and while your going you the 
stairs take them out. There are only two of them so it shouldn't 
be hard. How head out on to the terrace of the second floor 
and with any weapon able to zoom take out the guys fighting 
the streets one might be able to get to where you are so watch 
out for that. And another mission complete.


First go find the powder kegs (TNT, Dynamite, whatever) Go for 
the one at the end of town farthest away from the bridge first. 
Now pick it up and put it down again so you can take out the 
enemies that have suddenly appeared. Now take it to the drop 
off point inside some building. Now head around to the 
other powder keg. Pick it up and drop it again so you can take 
out the enemies that have again suddenly appeared now take it 
to the drop off point, first part is done. Right now right at 
the end of town right buy the invisible wall there is a family 
being held hostage take out your sharpshooter and take them 
out before they know what hit them, now you have to go up to 
the family for the mission to be over, they obviously had 
there eye's closed or something. Now go all the way back 
into town with your sharpshooter and take out the guys on the 
tower your going to run out of sharpshooter ammo I guess 
so which to rifle and get in closer and take out any still 
standing, remember there are also a few on the lower ledge 
and not only at the top of the tower.


"Decent" folks have been kidnapped, go find the one closest 
to the bridge, draw-draw and knock the bad guys hat off 
while leaving the hostage shakin'. Next go to the one in 
the building on the same side of the street now this is 
a rouse and there both in on it so kill them both, no 
mercy. Next head inside the Alhambra quick draw and 
shot him in the head, first section complete. Now meet 
the snitch down at the docks. You have to take him to 
his cart by the bridge off course people don't get 
anywhere without havin' a shot up in Dodge, take out 
your rifle or snipe and take out those on the hilly s
ide. Protect the snitch as you go through town 
quick-draw if mighty handy in situations like this. 
How this is it the big showdown with the boss. Get 
to the Alhambra, either you take the left stair way 
and fight your way through droves of the red hand gang 
or you can take the right stairway and come through 
the window right on the bosses. It may shock you but 
those prutty ladies in there are the bosses to kill 
them. Now that's the end of Pat Denton missions.


    Hunting Tips

You begin to hunt take to the native American hunter. 
First things first you need a bow as apparently killing 
them with a bullet takes no skill and I'm glad the bow 
is a fantastic weapon. Next you will need to find your 
prey going only on the hunches the hunter will give you, 
well you don't as I'm doing the work for you yah lazy 
beggar. Once you close on the are of your prey you will 
get a message saying that it is near that's your cue to 
get off your horse, I repeat get off your horse. Now 
you creep up on your prey by crouching and treading 
lightly aim with the bow and zoom. You will get 
another message telling you when your in range, aim 
for the head and let arrows fly. If you miss of hit 
the body the animal will generally run off and you 
have to find it again but sometimes it'll just run 
around in a circle leaving you aim again and this 
time don't miss. Remember aim for the head no matter 
how many arrows you put in the rest of the creature 
it won't die.

    Grey Wolf

The Grey wolf is found either outside Dodge or 
outside the ranch now the I like outside Dodge 
city best the best place to be is on the other 
side of the rail tracks away from the wolf cause 
you miss the wolf will run away in your direction 
giving you another chance to hit it in the head. 
Follow the hunting tips and you'll do fine.
    Great White Buffalo 

It's on the plains just outside the ranch, the best 
position for you be in is by the hilly side of the 
plains as if you miss it'll run towards you giving 
you another chance to hit it in right between the eyes.

    White Wolf

This she wolf hangs around either Piper Lake or the 
Apache's tribal grounds is you don't know where that 
is it's also where you meet Soapy after the steamboat 
ordeal. If your around the Apache's tribal site then 
approach from under the bridge as once again this is 
the way it will run towards if you miss or spook it 
giving you a chance to hit it where it counts, the 
head guys, come on focus.

    Great Mountain Lion

This appears to the east of the hunter in devils canyon 
go past the rail tracks and into the track that has 
brown soil. Now this is an odd one as it will just get 
running around in circles if you miss so the only danger 
is if you run out of arrows.

    Black Wolf 

The Black wolf appears in the hilly part of the plains 
outside the ranch by the old mine. Approach from the 
west side as that's the way it seems to run, you should 
know what to do by now.

    Hunt The Grizzly

Those of you paying attention would have noticed that 
is a mission so that means you don't have to use the bow,
thankfully. Head over to the empire you're guided now 
so it shouldn't be hard to find but encase you can't find 
him he's at the end of the gully that runs alongside Empire. 
Now the first thing to do once you've seen it is get off your 
horse and get it to a safe distance away, not too far mind as 
we'll need it later. Fight the grizzly as you fought the bear 
back at the start of the game, avoid it's charges and blast 
it with the shotgun. After it's taken a large amount of 
damage it'll run off. Now you see why I told you to get 
the horse safe, without it, it'll get too far ahead and 
mission failed. Once you've cornered it start the battle 
again, be wary as the grizzly will have full health again. 
Once you've don't that you've finished all the hunting 
missions, yay for you, apart from you've been cheating
by reading this.

  Mining Hints

I wouldn't tell you where they are because I don't know 
where they all are and it's hard to give exact locations 
however here are some helpful hints. Rivers, there are many 
by the rivers mainly at the end of steams or behind waterfalls. 
You see a cavern enter it and root around your likely to find 
something in there. Places you went on your missions that 
involved going to a hard to find place will have gold also 
because the game designers were too lazy to make more 
hiding places. A lot of gold seams are just around a 
corner you pass by time and time again don't forget 
you look around that rock every now and again. High 
places there are a few gold seams just above your 
eye line but sure you've been up on top of everything 
and followed all those paths that seem to do nowhere. 
Follow this advice and you should find at least 30 of 
the 44 gold seams.


After completing all the missions not only do you get 
the satisfaction that you've gone them all and you've 
tamed the wild, wild west but you also get the Cannon 
Nock Gun a shotgun that shoots cannon balls and Reed's 
horse that won't get tired and can take massive damage, 
you find reeds horse at Magruder's mine. Off course 
these are rather redundant as you've already done 
everything you can have needed them for but at least 
you got something.  A Word From the Maker

I like GUN I mean really like it but it's too damn 
short I guess that's always the way with games you 
truly like plus there should be more side-quests but 
I guess that would just be making more work for myself.
Please feel free to use this guide in anyway you see fit.
