FAQ/Walkthrough by Suprak the Stud

Version: 0.95 | Updated: 03/19/19

Compendium

Equipment

This section will detail all of Arthur's tools and toys that make exploring the Wild West a bit easier. Some of these you will come across automatically as part of the story, while others will need to be purchased from shops. Upgrades are included in this list, which will provide permanent boosts to Arthur's abilities or weapons but can come at a very high cost.

Lasso
With a lasso equipped, you can tie up animals or enemies as a way to restrain them without killing them. Holding down the attack button will cause you to begin swinging it over your head, and releasing it will throw it where your targeting reticule is at. The lasso will be obtained automatically as part of the Old Friends mission in Chapter 1.
Binoculars
Binoculars will allow you to see things further away. Just like real binoculars! You start the game with these, so you won't need to go and track them down. They can be kind of hard to use, but once you're familiar with them they are the easiest way to study animals from afar.
Fishing Rod
Fishing rods will allow you to fish. Total shock, I know. You will automatically obtain the fishing rod as part of the A Fisher of Men mission which will also provide a brief tutorial on how to use it.
Electric Lantern

A slightly better version of your standard lantern. To obtain it, you will first need to finish the stranger mission A Bright Bouncing Boy - II. Details for this mission are included in the Missions and Events section of the guide. Return to Doverhill at least 2 in game days later and you can find the electric lantern on the floor. Pick it up to add it to your inventory.

Camera
You can take pictures with this. That is how cameras work, after all. This will be automatically added to your inventory at the start of the game, so feel free to take it out and take pictures whenever something catches your eye.
Upgraded Bandolier
Found at all gunsmiths and can be purchased for $69.50. This will permanently increase the capacity for repeater, rifle, and shotgun weapons by 50%. The extra ammo can come in handy, and since this is a permanent upgrade you will want to look into investing in this when you have the money. This will be available the first time you visit a gunsmith and you do not need to do anything special to unlock it.
Upgraded Gun Belt
Found at all gunsmiths and can be purchased for $58.00. This will permanently increase the capacity for revolver and pistol weapons by 50%. This is another pretty good upgrade as it permanently improves all revolvers and pistols in the game. It will be available the first time you enter a gunsmith without any special requirements.
Upgraded Holster
Found at all gunsmiths and can be purchased for $45.50. This will slow the degradation of all your weapons by 20% and is a great permanent upgrade as you'll need to spend less on gun oil in the long run to keep your weapons in top shape. No special prerequisite is required to unlock this, and it will be available the first time you visit a gunsmith.
Off-Hand Holster
You will automatically acquire this after completing the Blessed are the Meek? main storyline mission. This will allow you to dual wield two sidearms at once, which makes it one of the better pieces of equipment in the game. This will make you even quicker in a gun fight and dual wielding will come in handy in many of the more difficult fights in the game.
Ingredients Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $26.50. This increases your carrying capacity for all crafting materials. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Badger Pelt, and 1x Perfect Squirrel Pelt. The badger might take a while to find, but the other two animals are extremely common and can be found early on. Ingredients are probably one of the less useful carrying upgrades, but it is still worth it to craft this if you can.
Materials Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $29.00. This upgrade allows you to carry more materials scavenged from animals - things like animal fat or flight feathers. Essentially this is everything you take when you skin an animal, except for the large skins or furs you pick up and put on the back of the horse. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Boar Pelt, and 1x Perfect Iguana Pelt. The hardest of these to find is the Iguana, who likely won't be found until Chapter 5 at the earliest. An upgrade to how many materials you can carry is nice, although people who don't hunt a lot probably won't need it. It is nice to keep you hunting longer, without having to go in to trade in your stuff as early.
Valuables Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $22.00. This is a nice upgrade that allows you to carry more of those valuable items you can pick up from enemies. These are pocket watches, hair clips, that sort of stuff. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Beaver Pelt, and 1x Perfect Rabbit Pelt. None of these are that hard to find, but you want to make sure you're using the right weapon to hunt for the smaller animals if you want the perfect pelts. There will be times you loot so many enemies you can't even pick up any more valuables, so this is a great upgrade to have.
Tonics Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $20.00. This increases the amount of all tonics you can carry at one time. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Buck Pelt, and 1x Perfect Elk Pelt. It should be one of the first satchels you craft because tonics are some of the best items in the game and all the animals required here are very common.
Legend of the East Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $150.00. You need to craft or buy all the other satchels in the game before you can get this one, but trust me, this is worth it. This increases the amount of all items you can carry by a lot. A whole lot. You'll be able to carry 99 of basically everything in the game. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Cougar Pelt, and 1x Perfect Wolf Pelt. Check the Compendium section of the guide if you're having trouble finding these animals. This is a must craft, so start working for this as early as possible.
Kit Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $15.00. This increases the amount of items in your kit you can carry. "Kit" items are kind of vague, but include things that you use to hunt or fish like bait or lures. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Elk Pelt, and 1x Perfect Panther Pelt. Deer and elk are easy enough to find, but it might be a while until you find a panther. This is far and away the least useful satchel upgrade, but you will still need it to eventually unlock the best satchel in the game.
Provisions Satchel
Can be crafted by Mr. Pearson in any of your camps or purchased from any fence starting in Epilogue: Part 1 for $25.00. This increases your overall carrying capacity for provisions, which are all the foodstuffs you can find and eat or drink to refill your cores. To craft it, Pearson will require 1x Perfect Deer Pelt, 1x Perfect Bison Pelt, and 1x Perfect Racoon Pelt. All of these should be fairly easy to find, although raccoons are small enough that it can be hard to find. An increase to your provisions is a great boost since you will find those all over the place and will run out of room pretty quickly.
Alligator Tooth Talisman
The talisman will provide a permanent decrease to the speed your Dead Eye core drains by 10%. This is a fantastic boost, and you should notice the effects almost immediately. It will require some work to get, unfortunately. It can be purchased at any fence for $40 once you bring the required items. To craft, you'll need vintage Civil War handcuffs, a gold jointed bracelet, and a Legendary Alligator Tooth. The Legendary Alligator Tooth can be obtained after killing the Legendary Bull Gator. He can be found just south of Lagras, although he won't appear until the start of Chapter 6. To get the vintage Civil War handcuffs, you will need to complete any set of cigarette cards. Send in the set, and you will receive your reward through the mail 24 in game hours later. Please refer to the Cigarette Cards sections of the Compendium for information on all locations of cigarette cards. The gold jointed bracelet is the most annoying because it is largely random. The easiest way to get one is to do a train robbery. There are lots of female passengers on board, and you can usually get one or two this way if you are lucky. Just make sure you rob everyone and check any safes on board, because they can be in there too. You can also occasionally get one from randomly robbing a woman on the street, but the odds seem much lower and the train station robbery is your best bet. Finally, during the optional mission Mrs. Sadie Adler, Widow - II in Chapter 6, there is an extremely high chance that one of the enemies will be carrying this. Loot everyone after Sadie leaves, and you will likely find this on the body of the man upstairs in the house that Sadie kills during a cutscene.
Bear Claw Talisman
This talisman permanently decreases the speed that your health core drains by 10%. This is a solid enough boost, but the talisman itself can be kind of a pain to craft. You can purchase it at a fence for $34.75, but it requires a silver chain bracelet, quartz chunk and Legendary Bear Claw. The Bear Claw can be obtained from killing the Legendary Bear, who appears in Grizzlies East. The quartz chunk can be found by mailing in one dinosaur bone. Wait 24 hours and you will receive this in the mail as a reward. Dinosaur bone locations are detailed in the Collectables section of the guide. Finally, the silver chain bracelet can be looted from enemies, but it is hard to find. Only female characters carry this, and it isn't a common drop. The best way to get this is by doing a homestead robbery as it seems to drop fairly commonly during those. The best is the Aberdeen Pig Farm robbery, and if you loot the female character afterwards you are almost guaranteed to get one. Please refer to the Miscellaneous section of the guide for more information on this robbery.
Tatanka Bison Horn Trinket
Crafting this will permanently decrease all melee damage by 10%. This isn't a huge boost, but can still be useful during certain fights. You will need to get the Legendary Tatanka Bison Horn, which can only be obtained after hunting the Legendary Tatanka Bison. The bison is found in eastern New Austin, south of the Stillwater Creek text. After you have the horn you can craft this at any fence in the game for $16.75. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide if you're having trouble locating the animal.
Beaver Tooth Trinket
This trinket permanently slows down the degradation of all weapons by 10%, giving you longer periods without needing to use gun oil. It can be crafted at any fence in the game for $18.25. You will first need to collect a Legendary Beaver Tooth, which can be obtained by hunting the Legendary Beaver near Elysian Pool. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Buck Antler Trinket
This is one of the most useful trinkets in the entire game, so your job is going to be making sure you grab it as quickly as possible. Purchasing this will give you higher quality animal parts for the rest of the game while scavenging, meaning you won't be restricted to one or two weapons while doing your hunting. This trinket will make it easier for you to get perfect quality loot. You can purchase it from any fence for $22 after you kill the Legendary Buck and bring his antlers over for a closer look. The buck itself can be found in western West Elizabeth, just south of the "B" from the "Big Valley" text.
Cougar Fang Trinket
This trinket provides a permanent 10% boost to all stamina experience. That sounds good and all, but it is very likely your stamina will be almost fully maxed out by the time you get around to crafting this so it might be entirely useless. This requires you to collect the Legendary Cougar Fang from the Legendary Cougar first. After you can craft this at any fence for $20.50. The Legendary Cougar is in the Gaptooth Ridge region of New Austin, near the first "T" of the Gaptooth Ridge text. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Coyote Fang Trinket
This trinket provides a permanent 10% boost to all Dead Eye experience. Of course, by the time you get around to crafting it you will likely have come close to maxing out your Dead Eye experience already so its utility is questionable. You will need to obtain the Legendary Coyote Fang first, and then this will be available to craft at any fence for $21.25. The Legendary Coyote itself is found nearby where the train track intersects at the New Hanover/Lemoyne border. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Elk Antler Trinket
Crating this will permanently boost the value of the money you loot by 10%, giving you an extra little bit of bonus cash each and every person you steal from. After obtaining Legendary Elk Antlers from hunting a Legendary Elk, you will be able to craft this at any fence for $22.75. The Legendary Elk can be found east of Fort Wallace in New Hanover. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Fox Claw Trinket
This is a great trinket, as it permanently increases the amount of time you can have Eagle Eye active by five seconds. It'll make searching for special hidden collectables and other hidden goodies even easier. To craft this you need to find the Legendary Fox Claw, which is obtained from hunting the Legendary Fox. After you will be able to craft it at any fence for $23.50. The Legendary Fox is located in the Mattock Pond region north of Rhodes. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Moose Antler Trinket
After crafting this trinket, Arthur will receive a permanent 10% bonus to all health experience. This essentially will make your health level up slightly faster for the rest of the game. It can be crafted at any fence in the game for $16.00 after you collect the Legendary Wolf Heart. To obtain it, go and kill the Legendary Wolf at Cotorra Springs in central Ambarino. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Pronghorn Horn Trinket
This is a great trinket that will prevent all animals put on the back of your horse from spoiling. You will no longer have to rush back to town to sell stuff now, making this one of the better trinkets in the entire game. Kill the Legendary Pronghorn to get the Legendary Pronghorn Horn, and then you can go to any fence in the game and craft this for $24.50. The Legendary Pronghorn is in the middle of southern New Austin, west of the Rio Del Lobo Rock. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Ram Horn Trinket
Crafting this will result in twice as many herbs being picked up whenever you pick creeping thyme, oregano, or wild mint. All other plants still yield only one per picking, so this winds up being one of the less useful trinkets in the game. After killing the Legendary Big Horn Ram and obtaining the Legendary Ram Horn, you can craft this from any fence for $17.50. The Legendary Big Horn Ram can be found in the southeastern portion of Grizzlies West. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Raven Claw Talisman
Another trinket that will save you on the cost of gun oil, crafting this talisman will permanently slow degradation of all weapons by 20%. This stacks on top of previous boosts and is pretty good for keeping your weapons in good shape longer. It can be crafted at any fence for $29.00 and requires the old brass compass. In order to get the old brass compass, you will need to send in the location of all ten rock carvings. You will get a letter 24 hours later, telling you to come back and visit the man who sent you on the quest in the first place. After a brief scene, go back in his house and you will find the old brass compass on the table. Please refer to the Collectables section of the guide for information on rock carving locations.
Wolf Heart Trinket
This is the ultimate party trinket, because after purchasing it you can drink twice as much alcohol before you start feeling the effects of being drunk. Time to binge! It can be crafted at any fence in the game for $19.00. You will first need to collect a Legendary Moose Antler, meaning you will have to hunt and kill the Legendary Moose in the northeast corner of the map. Please refer to the Animals section of the guide for more information about its location.
Lion's Paw Trinket
This trinket permanently increases your stamina experience bonus by 10%, and like any permanent upgrade it is worth purchasing as soon as you can. You can buy this from a fence if you already have the lion's paw on hand. If you do not have it yet, you must first complete the He's British, Of Course - V stranger mission and collect the lion's paw when prompted. For more information, please consult the Missions and Events section of the guide.
Panther's Eye Trinket
After you obtain this trinket, your Dead Eye will begin draining more slowly during usage. During the first three seconds of activation, it will drain 10% slower. After that, it returns to its normal drain speed. Still, this is a good trinket that will wind up saving you a good amount of Dead Eye over time. You can buy this from any fence in the game for $25.00 after you bring him the Legendary Panther Eye. This is obtained for killing the Legendary Panther, which can be hunted as part of the Master Hunter 10 Challenge. Please refer to the Challenges section of the guide for more information on how to complete this challenge.
