A Fork in the Road
As you make your way to Sadie, this quest will trigger automatically. There is not much to do in this quest as this mostly a cinematic sequence. Complete this in 3 minutes and 5 seconds and you will receive a Gold Medal.
Also, once the “A Fork in the Road” sequence is complete your attribute cores will start to deplete relatively faster.
Icarus And Friends
Meet up with Sadie and then follow her to the outskirts of Saint Denis. The ascend meter will help you get through this mission so pay close attention to it.
If you look closely, you will see a faded yellow segment in the Altitude meter. This segment is the optimal altitude range, as you reach this segment, the gauge will become yellow.
The goal here is to stay within the zone by regularly topping up the gauge. Keep an eye on the altitude meter, as it will transition towards the bottom of the gauge.
This signifies that you are getting close to your destination and need to start lowering your altitude. Once you reach the stationary position, use binoculars to look for John.
You will locate a group of prisoners, so zoom in to see if John is among them. The guards will start firing at you. At this point, ascend and leave the area.
Then you will notice that O’Discolls is pursuing Sadie. Since you have the advantage of the altitude, it is a good position to snipe.
Wait until you get in range and then start snipping them. The reticle will turn red once you are aligned on the target. As you are the only one on the balloon, you are now again in the control of the altitude. Just stay in the optimal altitude range.
You need to gain altitude in order to pass the bridge but then you need to immediately descent so that Sadie can reach the rope and the pull her up.
The mission will end with a shootout with the O’Discolls. They will start coming from one direction, however, as you finish them off more will arrive from behind you. The enemies will be greater in number and will be aggressive.
You will find Sadie on a pier located to the Northwest of the Sisika Penitentiary. Arthur will then has to row a boat but this is a small section and you will reach the island shore.
Crouch and follow Sadie to the watchtower then climb up and stealth kill the guard there. Pick up the rifle and use its scope to observe the area. First, take a look to your right in front of a barn. Kill the two guards and run to that position.
Once the cutscene is over, march the prisoner to the prison entrance. A shootout will begin and you need to be behind the wooden crates or barrels as they are strong covers.
As Sadie and John stat running through the field, join them and protect them from the oncoming threat. The point here is escaping with them so only kill the ones that pose a serious threat.
You will reach a pile of wooden crates and cotton bales. Take cover and kill as many as you can to give Sadie and John time to get to the boat. Once they reach shallow water, join them.
A shootout will take place on the boat. There is no cover here so make every bullet count until you reach the shore. Once there mount up and follow Sadie and John.
Just a Social Call
In this Red Dead Redemption 2 mission, you need to meet up with Micah between the two wooden houses in Annesburg. Follow him and Dutch and take cover behind the highlighted crate.
A shootout will start and you need to dispatch your enemies. However, reinforcements will arrive from the opposite position. Keep up with Dutch as he looks for Micah while killing all enemies that you encounter along the way.
As you reach the top of the stairs, a final wave of enemies will come. Kill them all and then go to the highlighted area to free the horses.
It is time to make your escape with the horses and mounted enemies will try to stop you. In addition, don’t worry about Dutch and Micah, as they will be close to you even if you are swift.

Here you will have to persuade Edith to go back to town. Both ‘ask’ and ‘demand’ will yield the same result and you will take her back to Archie to complete the mission.

Look for Rain Falls at Wapiti Indian reservation in a tent by the campfire. Follow him on the horse to the sacred site. Monroe will ask if you will help him while on your way.
If you choose yes then you will unlock “Honor, Amongst Thieves” mission. As you reach your destination, use Eagle eye to inspect the clues. Go to the army camp below to retrieve the Chanupa and the sacred items on the ground.

After placing the dynamite, run to the hill and detonate the dynamite when all the soldiers have passed the first one.
A shootout will begin and you being on the hill gives you advantage. Kill them and loot a few bodies, as more soldiers will attack from the opposite hill.
Eventually, you will be overwhelmed and you will run to your horse to escape with Dutch. As you reach the canyon, take cover and dispatch the soldiers. Again follow Dutch and you will be attacked along the way.

The King’s Son
Go to Wapiti Indian Reservation and talk to Charles and then talk to Rains Fall in his tent. Once the cutscene is done, ride with Charles to Fort Wallace.

Work with Charles to eliminate the next couple of soldiers. You will eliminate one more soldier and keep following Charles until he stops behind crates.

There will be more soldiers on the other side of the train. You will also see Paytah struggling with a soldier. Kill the soldier quickly with a headshot.
Go around the factory and you will face the last of the enemy group. Eliminate them, reunite with the gang, and finish the remaining soldiers. Speak to Dutch and follow him inside the factory to search the office upstairs.

Point Of No Return
As this point of the game, make sure you are satisfied with your progress and character. If you have done everything else in the game or are ready to complete the campaign, then start the next mission.
However, remember, once you start “Out Best Selves” you will have to see it through the end of the game.
Our Best Selves
Speak to Dutch in his tent and head out with the rest of the gang. Retrieve the dynamite with John before joining the other outside Saint Denis. As the train passes the station, chase it and jump on it.
Make your way to the engine car while killing enemies along the way. When the carriage ahead catches fire move next to John and jump on Dutch’s horse and hop back on the carriage ahead.
After the cutscene, an automatic deadeye sequence will take place. In the next sequence, you will get to a man on the Gatling gun and fire upon the mounter pursuers. Ammunition is not a concern here.
One the soldiers are dealt with, move to the armored carriage ahead. Plant dynamite on the door and ignite it or shoot it from a distance. Now, loot the armored carriage and jump off the train before it falls from the bridge that you blew earlier.
Red Dead Redemption
Follow Sadie to each Van Horn. Get to the top of the lighthouse then climb the stairs and then another ladder. You need to cover Sadie with your Sniper Rifle.
From Sadie’s starting location kill one of the two men to start a shootout and you need to cover Sadie as she moves ahead. You have plenty of ammunition, so you don’t need to worry about that.
Eliminate all enemies in the main street from your starting cover position and run to the pier. Automatic Deadeye sequence will initiate. Then during your mounted escape, more enemies will give chase.
A full deadeye meter will be enough here to take them all out. After a brief stay at Butcher’s Creek, Arthur will resume his journey to find Dutch.
Following the cutscene at Beaver Hollow, the Pinkertons will come for the gang. Fend off the enemies as best as possible. When John says to retreat, follow him inside the cave through the tunnels, ladders, platforms, and ledges leading to an exit.
A mounted escape will now initiate and you need to ride at full speed. Once you are on foot again, kill the Pinkertons on top of the hill. Now there are two important choices here:
- Go back into the cave for money.
- Help John to get to safety
If you go back for the money then go to Beaver Hollow. You will face hordes of enemies while you make your way to the money. Only kill the ones in the direct line of sight.
Get inside the cave, find the chest in the highlighted area, and then go back outside. If you choose to help John, then follow him up the cliffs and don’t worry about the shots being fired. On top of the hill, kill the Pinkertons until Micah arrives.
Micah will start a melee fight with you and he is vicious. Avoid attacking first, let Micah do that. When he attacks, clock him and counter him with a punch.
Keep doing it until a cutscene is triggered and the cinematic showdown will be in accordance with the choice you made earlier in the mission.
