Standard Outfits
These thirteen outfits are the ones available for anyone partaking in the game's story line. Some are essential for the completion of the game while others are small additions that are up to you whether or not you want it. They are all needed, however, to be listed under "100% Completion", a title given to those who've done everything possible in the game.

|Bandito Outfits||Until you take action, Banditos and Outlaws in Mexico will not harm you.|
