Red Dead Redemption 2 Grin and Bear It trophy and achievement guide. The FASTEST way to farm this trophy and will take 30-60 minutes. The area shown in the video spawns up to two bears. You need to get attacked by them and survive this attack and then kill the bear. You can set up a nearby camp and sleep for 72 hours to reset the environment. This will require you to make a save and then load that save to avoid having to wait the 10 minutes between sleeps.

    You must shoot the bear WHILE YOU ARE ON THE GROUND or they will NOT COUNT! You can’t just survive the bear attack, wait a couple seconds to get your aim back, then kill the bear. Nope, that would be too easy! You have to do it the silly monkey fuck way that Rockstar wants you to during the mini cut scene, even though it is never explained. I learned this the hard way, spending hours tracking down, surviving, and killing well over 18 bears only to realize literally ZERO of them had counted. To make matters worse on PS4, the only way to track your progress on this idiotic trophy is to login to the RockStar Social Club from the game and click on trophy progress. Check after your first couple bears to make sure you are getting the 5-6% progress and doing it the “right way”. GFY ROCKSTAR!!

    In the southern area of Tall Trees you can find 4 cabins grouped together called “Bear Claw” that has a dedicated Grizzly spawn.
    I went through the process about 8 times last night and it spawned in the exact same spot every time.
