Welcome to the trophy guide for Rustler
Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.
Stage 1 – Play through the Main Story.
Play through the main story. These are indicated with the orange quest “Q” symbols on the map. The blue quest “Q” symbols are the side missions. You should complete the side missions as you play the game so that you earn more gold coins and skill points to level up your character. Collect any of the collectibles that you find along the way. After completing the main story you will be able to free roam the entire map. There is a natural day and night cycle in this game that takes about 15 minutes to repeat. However, if you complete all of the side missions, the entire world will be stuck in the night cycle from this point onwards. This may change with an update patch in the future. This may make it more difficult for you to complete any of the tasks and find collectibles.
Stage 2 – Complete Side Missions, find all Collectibles, and complete all tasks.
After completing the main story you will be able to free roam the entire map and complete any side missions, quests, and collect any remaining collectibles that you may need.

Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
Catch all horses for This Neigh Land.
To the east of the North West Town is a ranch called “This Neigh Land“. There is a character that will ask you to find and bring him certain horses. There are 8 special horses to find. When you have completed the mission with your trainer for the Grand Tournament who is located in a rock-walled area, there will be a Horse Mask that you will be able to equip (see the picture below for this location). This will help in obtaining these special horses. It also helps to be riding the breed of horse that you are looking for even though it is not the special horse of that breed.
All of them can be found by riding along the road between the North West Town’s east opening to the bridge to the east and along this road until it is about halfway (near a small ranch where you can buy food) to the South East City.
The list of special horses are:
1. Fourhoof (starting horse).
2. Guardneigh (more solid horse).
3. Red Horspeed (bright red horse – 2 pictures shown as you can find or obtain through the indicated quest on the picture.)
4. Black and White Warhoof (zebra).
5. White Dotted Hackney (white dots on a red horse).
6. Spotted Charger (darker dots on a light brown horse).
7. Blue Horspeed (blue stripes and red jacket on this horse).
8. Rainbow Charger (light head to a darker rear horse with bands of rainbow colors on it).
After finding and returning the last horse, you will earn this trophy. You will also earn a white Unicorn to use in the game. See the pictures below.
The Last Crusade

This will give full access to the entire map. See the pictures below.
Complete all quests for the Spanish Inquisition.
The Spanish Inquisition will have you complete quite a few quests that involve the flat earthers (dressed in white) and the Spanish (dressed in red) all over the map. Check your map after completing a mission or quest to find and play the next quest. After completing all of their quests you will earn this trophy.

There are 10 fights available at each of the 2 MMA arenas and you will need to complete all of them for ‘The Crown’ trophy.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Collect 20 bodies during the body collecting side activity.
There are random wagons wandering the map that will allow you to do a 7 level activity of collecting bodies around the map and dropping them off at a graveyard. It’s easier to use the Town in the North West to complete this activity, but you can also use the City in the South East too. These are timed events where you will start with picking up 1 body and taking it to the graveyard in a certain amount of time. The next level will be 2 bodies in two different places that must be taken to the graveyard and so on and so further until you have to pick up 7 bodies for level 7. Try to avoid killing all NPCs as much as possible, especially the soldiers as your Wanted rating will start and the soldiers will attack your wagon to destroy it causing you to possibly fail this activity.
The Forel Method
Block 10 attacks in 60 seconds.
Before you attempt this make sure that you have a Shield. Attack any soldier to get your Wanted rating started. Kill the soldiers that come to stop you to keep increasing your Wanted rating. At level 2 or 3 Wanted rating, there will be a soldier that uses a Spear. Keep near him and have him continuedly trying to hit you as you block these attempts 10 times.
Kill 5 NPC in 5 seconds
There is a mission where there is a group of many NPC gathered for a concert. You can get any horse(s)/wagon and drive through the crowd of NPC to earn this trophy. If you miss this opportunity then you can go to either the Town or City and move the horses and wagons to create a small area near a TNT barrel. As the NPC starts to go past this area, walk into them to push and divert them to funnel and get trapped in this area. Continue until you have 5 or more in these close quarters. Then use an arrow to shot the TNT barrel and kill the 5 NPCs. See the pictures below.
Kill an NPC with a cow.
There is a mission where you will need to lead a cow into Town to the Butcher. You will use a stick to hit the cow to get it to move. Have the cow run over an NPC and when they die, you will earn this trophy. Otherwise, use a stick to direct a cow into an NPC and kill them.
Complete all quests for the Loan Shark.
The Loan Shark is located at a building with a fence around it in the North West Town. Perform the few quests that he gives you to complete this trophy. Afterward, you will be able to buy his property and use it as a safe location. You will also earn money on an hourly basis for owning it. See the picture below.
Gain and then remove a maximum Wanted rating without dying and with no quest active.
Have no active quest or mission shown as being active when attempting this trophy.
There are 5 levels of Wanted rating in the game. Start to kill and destroy things to obtain a Wanted rating. Killing the soldiers will increase the Wanted rating through the levels quickly until you get a 5 Wanted rating (5 soldier helmets will be shown in the top left-hand corner of the screen). After you have this highest Wanted rating you can get started to use the golden Wanted Posters by having your character go over the top of the golden circle to remove 1 Wanted rating level. You can go and find another one of these Wanted Posters or go far enough away and come back to the same Wanted Poster to reuse it again. Continue removing all of the Wanted rating levels until none remains.
Wield all weapons available in the game at least once.
There are 16 weapons in the game. You can find some of them scattered across the map (indicated with a red ring around them). Others will be obtained by completing the missions and quests in the game. One quest will have you going back to the North West Town MMA arena to use a weapon that is only available there. See the picture below. While others will be obtained by killing the soldiers and picking up their weapons anywhere on the map.
Collect 5000 gold pieces.
You will need to advance through the story and complete the mission called “Meat Muffins“. Next, once you have obtained 5000 gold pieces you will earn this trophy. You do not need to have this amount on hand to earn this trophy.
Complete all quests for the Priest.
The Priest quests are at the church in the Town to the North West, at his Residence on the middle, west side of the map, and the large church in the City in the South East. Play through completing these quests and once you are complete you will earn this trophy. Always check your Map to see where the next quest is located to continue the story. See the picture below.
Plow the fields 10 times.
To the South of the main character’s main home, there is a field that you can plow. The plow is the 2 horses attached to the plow that you drive over the field in any pattern or direction that you choose. It is best to make squiggly lines with the plow so that the percentage plow increases as fast as possible. Once you have done 100% plowing, you can continue with another activity. Next, come back to the field and plow every so often so that you do it at least 10 times. See the picture below for the squiggly line look.
Yellow Brick Road

The Other Son of Man
Herd a total of 50 NPCs to mass during the church herding side activity.
When you have completed the Priest’s questline, you will have the ability to do this side activity outside of the south of the church in the North West Town. See the pictures below. The activity involves you punching any NPCs that are near the church and then they will go into the church counting each as one of the herd. Replay this side activity until you have a total across multiple tries of 50 NPCs herded into the church.
Use Pimp-A-Horse 20 times.
There are 2 Pimp-A-Horse located on the map. Use any combination of one or both to have a total of 20 times that you used a Pimp-A-Horse. It costs 100 gold coins each time you use one of them. You can reuse one over and over if you want to quickly earn this trophy. See the picture below.

In Settings>Game>Blood needs to be changed to 5x and then Appy. Then attack any NPC in the game to earn this trophy. See the picture below.
