Along his path, Colton will encounter a variety of side missions in the West. He can earn money by helping out farmers, assisting the local sheriff, keeping regular folk out of harm's way, and even hiding a card up his sleeve and playing some Hold 'Em. Side missions are also vital in upgrading Colton's skills. The side missions are listed below and come up in random places on Colton's journey.
After completing all the missions not only do you get the satisfaction that you've gone them all and you've tamed the wild, wild west but you also get the Cannon Nock Gun a shotgun that shoots cannon balls and Reed's horse that won't get tired and can take massive damage, you find reeds horse at Magruder's mine. Off course these are rather redundant as you've already done everything you can have needed them for but at least you got something.
