Half the fun of Desperados III is finding creative ways to crawl around the West and kill your foes. It’s a great challenge on its own, but there are also badges you can earn for completing specific goals within a mission. Unfortunately, the game only reveals what these badges are after you’ve completed the mission, so we’ve rounded up what you’ll need to do for each badge in each mission that has badges.
