Damn, you are right. I do have two of the bloody things. I cant remember either.
I must have bought one and then the compensatory one must have come while I wasnt looking.

EW always in a hurry instead of researching. They gave me one as well. I already had the .454 El Torro. 6 kills with the El Bisonte just so it shows up in my stats. They could have given us em$ in the amount of the cost of that gun, and let us buy what we want.

I don't mind to buy a lot of weapons(if I will do so) but I will not buy a variation of a weapon that I already have.

They should update those missions so you can use the same caliber but with a "different" variation of the weapon.
For Example, on the mission "We Woke Up The Mama" it's says: "Harvest the Brown Bear Goldilocks using a .308 "Rival" Handgun."
it should be "using a .308 Single Shot Handgun"

According to wiki there's 11 Missions with the Recurve Bow, excluding the mission Specific Accuracy that says "...using the Heavy Recurve Bow Modern":
4 Missions says: "...with the Recurve Bow Modern" that means that I cannot use my Carbon??
Spoiler:
  • Tying Up
    Harvest a Male Blacktail Deer scoring more than 135 with the Recurve Bow Modern.
  • Older School
    ...Harvest a female Wild Boar using a Recurve Bow Modern.
  • Closing in
    ...with a Recurve Bow Modern
  • The Ultimate Challenge
    ...using a Recurve Bow Modern

6 Missions says "...with ANY Recurve Bow":
Spoiler:
  • Traditions
  • Revenge is Sweet
  • Dirty History
  • Pork Recipe
  • Up Close and Personal
  • Go Paleolithic

I believe it is most likely that a player will buy all the missions weapons(over time) if they don't restrict "variations" of the weapon.
Of course you can have a friend to help you, and you only harvest the animal, but isn't the company interest to profit?

Other missions are really misleading as well:
just like DanthemanBoone point out Here - 44 revolver (Silver) Confusion.
DanthemanBoone wrote:The original 44 revolver is described in the store simply as 44 revolver (Silver).
But in the Achievements list it is described as 44 Magnum revolver (Silver)..."


Those mission make you believe that you need to use the .44 Magnum Revolver and cannot use the .44 Revolver
It should be: "...using any .44 Revolver."
Spoiler:
  • Nice Sidearm...
    Harvest Whitetail Deer Buck using a .44 Magnum Revolver.
  • I'll give you a Buck for each...
    Harvest a Whitetail Deer using a .44 Magnum Revolver.
  • Easy Does It
    ...using a .44 Magnum Revolver.
  • Bitchin'
    ...using a .44 Magnum Revolver.

On the Store, there's two .44 Handguns, one as ".44 Revolver", the second as ".44 Magnum Revolver". Which one looks like the mission is talking about?

Sometimes, may happen that a weapon like in your example, the "Recurve bow modern" comes out, then comes out some mission that include that weapon, and then a variation for that weapon come out, in this case the "Carbon", that may be the reason for some of that really weird need of some missions for a particular skin of a weapon, i am not fan of requiring specific weapons for mission, but i get why is done, but asking specific skins of one specific weapon seems absurd. Think about it, if some mission need a Pulsar as weapon required, what difference make in the profits if is fores, winter or black camo? its the same pulsar and the same price. I guess some mission may need a reevaluation, after all they are very old, and lot of new stuff have been implemented, and can happen that a new variant of an existing weapon get excluded just because the mission wasn't updated to include it, EW please, give missions a look, they are a big part of the game.

I have done as single player.
I do not play well with others.
Others may decide to their missions the way they see fit.
I will continue on alone.


:lol: :lol: Yep- me too. Very good post btw- it is true. No matter how I look at it, always seems I need to spend to buy things for missions. I guess that is the nature of the beast tho. 8-) Peace.

Here is a by-name list of weapons from the wiki Mission webpage. All of these weapons are referenced in the Animal, Weapon, and Themed (Laura Francese, The Boone And Crockett, Traditional Bows) Missions.

Two of the weapons are for the Travel Missions only: Weapons # 7 and # 13.

The "Items" list are those items that are needed to complete those missions and the "May Want" list is not needed to complete a mission, but may make it easier to do.


Weapon #, Type, Named Weapon or Scope
Weapon #1, R, .22 Air Rifle
Weapon #2, R, .223 Bolt Action Rifle
Weapon #3, R, .243 Bolt Action Rifle
Weapon #4, R, .270 Bolt Action Rifle

May Want #2, Caller(s)
May Want #3, Tent(s)

May Want #6, Scopes for Weapons

Type meaning: R = Rifle, H = Handgun, S = Shotgun, B = Bow or Crossbow, MR = Muzzleloader Rifle, SC = Scope (these three scopes are needed to complete those missions)

I'm using the above list every weekend that there is a sale. If I see something, I buy it (if I have the em$ ;-) ) and then cross it of the list. I thought someone else might like it for reference too. ;-)

I wasn't able to edit the post above (rights removed to do this after a certain time?), but wanted to update it with the number of missions that each of these weapons are used in. In other words, to give you an idea of which weapons are used most often (and therefore you might want to buy before other weapons).

Some of the missions have multiple choices (ie… .22 pistol OR .257 pistol OR .44 pistol [this was made up as an example only, not in any mission]), so a weapon I already owned or would need to buy was used for that count.

This is the same list of weapons as shown above, but this time it is ordered from the most used weapon to the lest used. Again, I didn't count the Travel Missions for this.

Missions Used - Named Weapon or Scope
8 - Recurve Bow, Modern
7 - Parker Python Compound Bow
6 - .22 Pistol
6 - .300 Bolt Action Rifle
6 - .44 Magnum Revolver
6 - 9.3x62 Anschütz 1780 D FL Bolt Action Rifle
6 - Snakebite Compound Bow
5 - .30-06 Lever Action Rifle
5 - .357 Revolver
5 - 12 GA Blaser F3 Game O/U Shotgun
4 - .223 Bolt Action Rifle
4 - .270 Bolt Action Rifle
4 - .308 Anschütz 1780 D FL Bolt Action Rifle - Heartwood
4 - 12 GA Pump-Action Shotgun
4 - 12 GA Single Shot Shotgun
4 - 6.5x55 Blaser R8 Bolt Action Rifle
4 - 7mm Magnum Bullpup Rifle
4 - 8x57 IS Anschütz 1780 D FL Bolt Action Rifle
4 - Longbow
3 - .22 Air Rifle
3 - .243 Bolt Action Rifle
3 - .454 Revolver
3 - .50 Cap Lock Muzzleloader
3 - .50 Inline Muzzleloader
3 - 20 GA Semi-Automatic Shotgun
3 - 8x57 IS K98k Bolt Action Rifle.
3 - Reverse Draw Crossbow
2 - .30-30 Lever Action Rifle
2 - .308 "Rival" Handgun
2 - .45-70 Lever Action Rifle
2 - 12 GA Side by Side Shotgun
2 - Tenpoint Carbon Fusion Crossbow
1 - .340 Weatherby Magnum Bolt Action Rifle.
1 - 3x Tenpoint Crossbow Scope
1 - Aimpoint H34L Sight
1 - Aimpoint Micro H-1 Sight
1 - Cable-backed Bow
- - .303 British Bolt Action Rifle - Travel Mission
- - 7mm Break-Action Rifle - Travel Mission
