Red Dead Redemption Levels, Fame, Honor

Red Dead Redemption offers 50 levels for players to progress through and another 5 tiers of Legend mode. If you’ve played singleplayer mode you may have noticed gains (or losses) in your Fame and Honor. What are they and why do you want them? As with everything else in the game, there are always perks.

Legend mode is similar to the Prestige modes of other games where players keep Titles and Characters but lose everything else, starting over at Level 1. Players unlock mounts faster as they complete more Legend play.
