99.5%, Evans Repater, Not Available but I already own it
« on: July 19, 2011, 07:15:34 AM »
Hi all,

I have trawled the net to find a solution but cant find anyone suffering the same problem.

I am at 99.5% on Red Dead, and the Social Network says I need the Evans Repeater, which would then be the 0.5% I need.

My problem is:

a) I already have the Evans Repeater - yes, I really, really do!
b) If I go t the shop in Blackwater it always says "Not Available"

I have never entered a cheat code and couldnt possibly say where I picked up the Evans Repeater.  I found one other guy on the internet who had the same problem, in that he had the Evans Repeater already but he had to actually buy it to update.  He,  however, was able to simply go in the shop and buy it which then triggered his 100% trophy.  No such luck for me :-(

Any ideas?  I would love to get this final part sorted.

Gang members in Pike's Basin drop the Evans Repeater.  Not sure if you can pick it up though.

I am not sure why it says it is not available.  I'll look around though.

Yeah, it seems that my problem is that I cant BUY it to trigger the update of stats.  I already have one and use it, but I will go to Pikes Basin and fight them all again and see if I can pick up another one and see if that triggers the update.

Just cant figure out why it shows as Not Available in the Blackwater store.

I think I might have figured it out.

Check this example:

Okay, say you have NOT bought the Sawed Off Shotgun.  Therefore, it is for sale in the Thieves Landing Gunsmith.  You then purchase the Sawed Off Shotgun, therefore you remove it from the shop, and thus the label "Not Available" then appears over the Sawed Off Shotgun - so you cannot buy more than one.

Basically, purchasing/obtaining a weapon will put a "Not Available" label over it's picture so you cannot buy more than one.

In your case, you already have the Evans Repeater - therefore the "Not Available" label shows up to limit you to having one Evans Repeater only.

And all in all, you are not and cannot purchase the Evans Repeater - you already own one.  If anything, it's just a glitch in the statistics.

I don't know what to tell you.

If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

Very helpful comment...

You could try killing the clerk in Blackwater to see if he will respawn and sell you the Evans and if that doesn't work you could try and get the Evans off a dead body.

The problem is that I, and OP already own the repeater somehow - I've heard that one Bandit Hideout or something, uses the Evans repeater.. Apparently you HAVE to buy it in Blackwater, to get the .5% which is impossible when one has it
