The player may come across Gordo when riding around the roads near Thieves' Landing.

Tips and Tricks

  • Being mounted on a horse can save you from being attacked.
  • Try to shoot boars between the back leg and the torso, where they are vulnerable.
  • Usually a single Buffalo Rifle shot will kill him.
  • In multiplayer the boar can spawn across the river in Mexico, if spawn waves stop check the other river bank.
  • In multiplayer it is possible to use the demolished house in Greenhollow as a safe spot, as the waves of boars do not enter the house.
  • Gordo's drops sell best in Chuparosa, Escalera, Blackwater, and Manzanita Post; $96 for Gordo's meat, $81 for Gordo's Tusks, $81 for Gordo's Skin and $108 for Gordo's heart.
  • Gordo's provisions can be sold at a grand total of $552 in the areas listed above, with Honor Rank of Peacemaker.


  • In multiplayer online, Gordo has been known to not show up when searching in the red circle. Players have reported spending more than an hour waiting for Gordo to show up but he doesn't. This may be happening because some of the boars are spawning underground. A possible solution to this is to leave the red circle for a few minutes and then come back again. A better solution (if applicable) is to kill everyone who isn't hunting him.
  • Shooting Gordo when he is in water results in the inability of the player to skin him. Shooting Gordo when he is on land is the best choice when looking to complete the Hunter's Challenge (Rank 10). However, it has been found that if Gordo lands in the water, the player automatically receives all of his "loot" without needing to skin him. However, if the player walks into Gordo's body, eventually he'll walk up on top of him and out of the water, allowing him to be skinned. Its best if you mash the Y button (Xbox 360) or the Triangle button (PS3) while walking into him.
  • It is possible that the player doesn't even kill Gordo and will still get credit for the kill. If the player and Gordo are on opposite sides of a river, Gordo may fall in and die. After a few seconds the player will get the loot and credit for the kill.
  • Sometimes, the player will get two hearts for skinning him.
