No, it's not a joke.  Rockstar is running a contest right now that involves killing a Rockstar employee in Red Dead Redemption.  Those that manage to do so will unlock a special achievement or trophy.  As long as that player belongs to the Rockstar Social Club, you'll be automatically entered for a chance to become a playable character in an upcoming DLC.  

That is awesome.  Find out all of the details after the jump, which includes the PSN ID's and Xbox Live Gamertags to hunt as well as a fancy poster.  This is the "Kill A Rockstar" Challenge.  Good luck!





In celebration of the North American release of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games is happy to announce the ‘Kill a Rockstar’ Red Dead Redemption multiplayer challenge. Beginning today through June 1, players who track down roving posses of Rockstar employees on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live have the chance to earn the coveted “Red Dead Rockstar” Trophy/Achievement by directly taking down a Rockstar, or someone who has already killed a Rockstar. Once securing the Trophy/Achievement, players already enrolled in the Rockstar Game Social Club will automatically be entered for the chance to have their likeness on a unique Multiplayer character in upcoming Red Dead Redemption downloadable content.
