Honor:

[Bad] Desperado---Road Agent---Rustler---Drifter---Honest Joe-Peacemaker---Hero [ Good]

Fame:

[start of the game]Nobody-Greenhorn-Buckaro-Mercernary-Gunslinger- Legend [End of the game ]

You need to get roughly 2000 honor points ( or -2000) and 7500-10.000 Fame points

In order to get this achievement you need to have your Honor either maxed out or have it at the absolute bad boy bottom in addition to having the maximum amount of fame available.

Honor can be earned and lost and wearing a bandana prevents you from gaining or losing any honor and is typically something you should only wear if you are about to do something that is going to have a contradicting influence on your honor bar (example: trying to get a 5k bounty while you're being good). The bandana also prevents you from getting fame, so especially during the story related missions I recommend against wearing it.

You cannot lose fame. Fame gives you certain perks throughout the game, varrying from reduced bounties , legally stealing horses and other things.

You can obtain this achievement by playing through the game once. Completing all the story missions without the bandana will get you near the maximum amount of fame.

Several methods for fame in case you end up short:

Poker Cheating: This is the fastest , easiest and probably the way that is available whenever you wish to use it instead of looking for opportunities to get fame. You have to wear the elegant suit. When you are dealer, cheat by pressing Y. Push your arrow all the way to either the left or right and a guy will start pointing fingers. Now you're getting into a duel. Disarm him by shooting the right arm or the gun itself. When you do , the dead eye colors should immediatly disappear and you shoot the gun out of his hands. This will grant you +100 fame. Run back to the table and keep doing this untill no one is left, save&repeat or proceed to the next town.( you won't lose any honor for this btw). You will lose the money that you paid for playing at the poker table so if you are short on money you should primarily focus on the cheaper poker tables ( McFarlane's ranch, Armadillo)

Bounties:, especially the bounties alive give you +50 fame everytime you bring in an alive bounty.

Escapees : +50 fame is awarded if you catch escaping prisoners alive and return them to the wounded lawmen. That amount is less if you kill them ( +5)

Robbers: Leave the robbers or horsethieves alive for 50 fame, kill them and get 5.

Damsel in distress: The lady with the broken cart wheel and her beloved 5 companions hiding behind the cart: +50 if you only kill the men and keep the woman alive. ( if you dead eye all of the targets before they come out of their hiding places and kill them all immediatly the women will drop to her knees and beg you for mercy)

Bird Shooting or pelt collecting usually earns you about 20 fame.

Completing challenges will get you fame, depending on the level, it's usually around 5 to 100.
How do you become the dealer in poker? I only see a dealer for blackjack and I didn't see a way to become the dealer for that either.

CenrailYou become dealer in turns, they just pass the stack along.

KungPauwChickenDamn bandana...I stopped getting fame and honor for so long and thought the game glitched on me, thanks for that heads up

CenrailYeah, happened to me as well. I played half of the campaign with a bandana. But if you just do every random blue dot mission it should be no big deal.

CenrailThank you. I will add that

kbkM347W4DLike Lt CarpetMunch said MacFarlane's Ranch is a better place to do this. I actually got 500xp in about 4min before Jerry Springer started this morning. Just make sure you disarm them. If you are not very good at this you might want to go ahead and just kill them.

oWxlkerLoved the method of cheating in poker and then disarming the enemy in the duel. It worked well, didn't take me long to gain full fame by doing that. Thanks.

killchain fffCan you get your fame and honour maxed out after you beat the game?
Posted by killchain fff on 24 Sep 12 at 03:13
CenrailYes. Poker and random events will always be available.

EdibleMessiahIs there any way of earning honor after beating the game and doing every side-mission, by the time I figured out what my bandana was doing I had pretty much did all of the main story plus every side mission :/

AnemonemanThis duel method works perfectly, thanks! Even though I played through the entire story towards the achievement, I still needed 600-800 fame to get the achievement. Got it in minutes thanks to this guide
