There are 7 Gang Hideouts to clear out in the single player campaign. These are required to be completed at least once if your going for 100% completion. Each one offers fame, money, and a new weapon upon completion. Once completed you can re-visit each one after some time has passed, like 24 hours or so. PS3 players or those with Game of the Year Edition have 1 additional hideout to clear out but, it is not required for 100% completion.

Here is a link to the hideout locations. I also provided a mini-map of their locations next to the photo of each hideout below. This is a link to see where they are in case you don’t recognize the roads in the mini-maps.
Hideout Locations

Pike’s Basin

Image

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • The Bollard Twins Gang
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Must complete the mission, “Justice in Pike’s Basin” to unlock.
REWARD:
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun

WALKTHROUGH:

    Enter the Basin from the West
  • MEET THE RANCHER NEAR THE CANYON FORK
    The Bollard Twins Gang stole his cattle. Help him get them back.
  • NAVIGATE THE TERRIAN TO THE MAIN BASIN
    Take cover when you can. This portion of the hideout is where most of the enemies are. The Rancher can die too so be careful. However, the mission still completes if the rancher dies.
  • CLEAR PATH FOR RANCHER
    If Rancher is alive
  • FINISH OFF THE REMAINING MEMBERS
    If Rancher is dead.

It’s not a terribly hard hideout at all but, the Rancher can easily die once you reach the main basin so, if you want to keep him alive, be prepared to provide cover for him because, he will charge into there. If he dies, you miss out on earning positive honor.

Twin Rocks

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • The Walton Gang
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Available almost at the beginning of the game.
REWARD:
  • Volcanic Pistol

WALKTHROUGH:

  • MEET THE RANCHER OUTSIDE OF TWIN ROCKS
    The Walton Gang has kidnapped his Daughter and holding her hostage in the house.
  • KILL THE WALTON GANG
    Be careful of the snipers on the Twin Rocks at the entrance of the area.
  • KILL THE REMAINING MEMBERS
    The remaining gang members file out of the house so, be ready.
  • RESCUE THE RANCHER’S DAUGHTER IN THE BEDROOM
    Using deadeye makes this a little easier. Simply kill the remaining gang member inside to complete hideout.

This mission will still complete if you fail to save the Rancher’s Daughter. If you fail to save her, you receive negative honor so, keep that in mind.

Fort Mercer

Image

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • The Banditos
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Must complete the mission, “We Shall Be Together in Paradise” to unlock.
REWARD:
  • Semi-Automatic Pistol

WALKTHROUGH:

  • MEET THE GUNSLINGER BY THE WALL
    He wants your assistance in getting into the Fort. The Banditos are using it as a hideout and there’s a lot of stolen money inside.
  • CLIMB THE WALL, OPEN THE DOOR FROM THE INSIDE
    After taking out the Banditos on the upper level, you can either head down to ground level and open the door, or you can wait to open it after you finish off the gang.
  • KILL ALL BANDITOS
    If you opened the door, the gunslinger will assist you. He can die here so be careful. Mission still completes though if he dies.

If you complete the mission with the gunslinger still alive, follow him to collect your reward. If he dies, you get the money upon completion. You miss out on receiving positive honor if you let him die.

OTHER TIPS:
  • There is a safe on the upper level of the Fort that can be broken into. You will receive negative honor though for cracking it but, it's also a way to make some more money when going through this hideout.


Tumbleweed

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • Various Criminals/Bounty Hunters
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Must complete the mission, “Let the Dead Bury Their Dead” to unlock.
REWARD:
  • Winchester Repeater

WALKTHROUGH:

  • FREE THE CAPTURED SHERIFF
    There is a captured Sheriff in this town. If you free him, he may help and reward you.
    You still get a reward is he dies but, you miss out on more positive honor if he does die. The mission will still progress and finish whether he is alive or not.
  • KILL THE CRIMINALS IN TOWN
    Your going to have to be careful maneuvering through the town as enemies come from all sorts of directions. It's probably best to stay near the edge of the town, and move into the center of town once there's a few enemies left.
  • KILL THE CRIMINALS IN THE MANSION
    Head on up to the giant mansion sitting on top of the hill. Take cover on your way up there because, the enemies will be shooting at you from cover as well. Once you taken care of the ones outside, head inside to finish them off. You might have to go into the basement for the last remaining ones. There's stairs inside the mansion, and the is an entrance outside in the back.

This one can be challenging because, the enemies are abundant. Pay attention and don't hesitate to move through the town slowly because, running into the action could spell disaster for you and the sheriff.

Gaptooth Breach

Image

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • Treasure Hunters
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Must complete the mission, “Man is Born Unto Trouble” to unlock.
REWARD:
  • Springfield Rifle

WALKTHROUGH:

  • GO TO THE MINE ENTRANCE
    The Treasure Hunters are protecting some loot located inside the mine.
    You’ll have to take care of all the Treasure Hunters outside first to make it easier.
  • SEARCH THE MINE FOR TREASURE
    Navigate the tunnels carefully. The treasure is located at the Northeast corner of the mine.
  • GO TO THE MINE EXIT
    You’ll have to kill some more Hunters on your way towards the exit.

Navigating through the tunnels can be a bit tricky and it’s easy to get lost if you haven’t been down there before. Take the first left down there to approach the main area inside the mine from above.

OTHER TIPS:
  • This is a great place to finish the 10th level of the "Sharpshooter Challenge" once you've unlocked it because, enemies can be singled out and disarmed without the interference of others. Once you enter the mines, slowly navigate the mine with your pistol out. Use dead-eye to disarm the enemy, and then put a bullet in his head to get him out of the way. Do this another 5 times and you will complete the challenge. Make sure you bring some items that restore your dead-eye meter.


Nosalida

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • Reyes’ Rebels
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Unlocked upon arrival to Mexico.
REWARD:
  • Henry Repeater

WALKTHROUGH:

  • APPROACH THE GENERAL TO OFFER YOUR ASSISTANCE
    The General needs your assistance in eliminating the Rebels. He tells you to burn down the building with the fire bottles he provides.
  • DESTROY THE BUILDINGS
    You’ll have to eliminate the Rebels as well so, while your working on the buildings, make sure you pay attention to the enemies. You can either burn down the buildings by throwing a fire bottle on them, or by shooting lanterns that are attached to the building that needs to burn. The only objectives that can’t be burned by a lantern are the two ships in the harbor.
  • RETURN TO THE GENERAL FOR REWARD
    Once all the buildings are burning, return to General’s location to collect your reward.

This hideout can be very tricky to complete, especially at night. If you shoot a Mexican Army member, of which there are numerous at the hideout, the Army immediately turns on you and tries to kill you instead of the Rebels. So, be careful who you shoot at.

Tesoro Azul

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • Reyes’ Rebels
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Must complete the mission, “The Demon Drink” to unlock.
REWARD:
  • Double-Action Revolver

WALKTHROUGH:

  • KILL THE CRIMINALS IN TOWN
    Slowly navigate through the town, taking out what you see. This hideout isn't very hard at all, just pay attention to the red dots on the HUD.
  • RESCUE THE DEPUTY FROM THE GANG LEADER
    ...or not. The mission still completes if you fail to save him. The gang leader can take a few more bullets than the average criminal so, keep that in mind.

The mission will still finish up if you let the gang leader kill the deputy. You just miss out on additional positive honor if you didn't save him. And be careful if you fail to save the deputy because, you still have to kill the gang leader to complete the hideout so, you still have to watch out for him.

Solomon’s Folly (PS3 AND GOTY EDITION)

Image

GANG USING THIS LOCATION:
  • The Walton Gang
REQUIREMENTS:
  • Unlocked near the beginning of the game. Only those with a PS3 or Game of the Year Edition have the option of completing this hideout.
REWARD:
  • Money

WALKTHROUGH:

  • MEET THE SHERIFF NEAR THE ROCK
    The Walton Gang has stolen a safe from the Bank in Armadillo. The Sheriff has requested that you help him get it back.
  • CLEAR OUT THE WALTON GANG
    Slowly navigate your way through the area, taking cover when you can. Work your way towards the barn and the coach sitting out front.
  • RETURN THE WAGON TO THE ARMADILLO BANK
    Hop on the Wagon and drive it safely back to Armadillo. The Walton Gang will however chase you all the way back so, be prepared to shoot while driving the coach as the Walton Gang are relentless and never give up until you reach Armadillo.

This is the only Gang Hideout that actually finishes in a different place than it originally began at. And if your not careful, the Walton Gang could make quick work on you once you get on the wagon and head for Armadillo.

OTHER TIPS:
  • If you have the Walton Gang outfit, you can exploit a "quick money" glitch I discovered. Enter Solomon's Folly and go right up to the safe on the wagon. Break into it and take the money. The only person that won't approve of your actions is the Sheriff that's trying to get the safe back. Kill him, leave the area, return, and everything resets. You can do this as many times as you want.
