Clemency Pays is an achievement/trophy in Red Dead Redemption.


Capture a bounty alive.


The player will encounter many such bounty opportunities in different settlements. The capture of a live bounty will net the player additional reward and honor.

To capture the bounty target alive, equip the lasso (unlocked in the Bonnie MacFarlane mission "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions") and aim at the target. Once the target is locked in auto-aim, "fire" the lasso and hogtie the target. Place him onto a horse and return to the sheriff.

If you're having trouble catching the bounty when they escape, simply go into Dead-Eye and shoot their legs; you can then easily catch up and lasso them. Be careful - accidentally shooting too high can result in a kill. If they get on their horse, you can either try to catch up to them with your horse or shoot their horse. (Note: the horse does not have to die; if injured, it will usually buck the bounty off)
