The Aftermath of Genesis is the title of one of the missions of Red Dead Redemption 2's main plot in the game's first chapter. This task is about going hunting with Charles. Our walkthrough contains info about hunting two deer. This isn't hard. This mission is more a hunting tutorial than a fully-fledged quest.
How to trigger the mission: talk to Mr. Pearson in the mountain camp. You have to finish the Entrance and Pursued by Memory mission.
Walkthrough: Set out on horseback with Charles to the place, where you can hunt. Dismount the horse and take out the Longarm Shoulder Bow.
Crouch and start following Charles. On your way, you can activate the Eagle Eye mode, which allows you to trace wild game. Turn back towards the line mark and press the go Tracking button. From this point on, you will see a flashing line indicating the way to the first deer (it is a little more difficult to notice in the snow).
Soon you will approach the first deer - the attached picture shows a good place to take the shot. Aim the bow at the deer's head. You can also press the call button to make the deer raise its head for a moment.
Go around the corpse of the first deer, jump across the river and use Eagle Eye to locate the other deer. The attached picture shows a good place to take the shot. Remember not to get too close to the deer and to aim at his head.
After a successful kill, return to the corpses of the first deer, pick it up and call your horse. Place the deer on the back of the horse. Climb on a horse and follow Charles back to the mountain camp. You come across a bear. Do as Charles says - let the bear move away. You should also press the right button to calm your horse down.
When you go back to the camp, get off the horse and bring the dead deer to Pearson. Go to the animal and hold down the right button to skin it. This will conclude the mission
How to get the gold medal for The Aftermath of Genesis?
- Kill each deer with a single arrow - aim always at the head and shoot before the deer leaves (or changes its position).
- Don't scare off any deer - shoot from a long distance, preferably from the two places shown in the pictures above.
- Get a clean kill with the second deer - simply, kill it with a headshot.
