Outlaws from the West is the title of the first mission of Red Dead Redemption 2's main plot. As part of this mission, members of the gang, which includes the main character Arthur Morgan, visit the Adlers' Ranch in search of supplies. This is not a difficult mission, but still, our description of the passage thoroughly discusses all its steps. In this mission, you will learn the basics of shooting and fist fighting.
How to trigger the mission: Automatically after the beginning of the game.
Walkthrough: Follow Dutch on horseback. This is a linear journey in which you should not stop or stray from your route. The group will be joined by Micah. You can talk to him on the go (hold down the talk button and select one of the dialog options), but this is optional.
After reaching the Adlers' ranch, descend from the horse and hide in the shed on the left side. Wait until the Dutch greet the residents of the ranch. These are members of the hostile gang O'Driscoll Boys and you should attack them before they turn against Dutch. During combat, it is best to stay behind cover and shoot those enemies who lean out of cover or try to switch positions and become exposed.
The last survivor will try to flee. You can try to chase him but Dutch will let him go. After chasing him down, enter the main building on the ranch You must search the building - collect the items in sight and check out all interactive cabinets, crates and other containers.
The game will propose regeneration of the hero's health core - open the bag and select a consumable (example in the picture). You can carry on searching the building or go outside to meet Dutch. In the bedside cabinet, you should be able to find a collectible card ((the card type is generated randomly) - this is one of the categories of secrets in the game.
Go to the barn where Arthur is attacked by a concealed bandit. There is a simple tutorial on melee combat. You don't have to block the attacks. Simply press the button responsible for hitting in hand-to-hand combat until your opponent is knocked to the ground. Grab him and question the man. You can end the hearing in one of several ways - strangle the bandit, release him or beat him up. This type of choices in the game affect the coefficient of honor (reputation) of the hero, although in exceptional cases they may also have some long-term consequences.
Lift the hat and approach the horse. You need to calm it down before you can lead it out. The tame horse will become the main mount of the hero. The new cut-scene will end the mission.
How to get the gold medal for Bandits from the West?
In every mission in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can complete some challenges. Depending on how many of them you get, you will get a bronze, silver or gold medal. If you want to win a gold medal, you must always pass all the challenges. Furthermore, this should be done in the course of a single mission. If you haven't earned gold, you can repeat the mission from the pause menu. You can find out more about this on the How to repeat missions? in our guide.
- Finish the shooting without taking any damage - Try not to leave behind the initial cover. Also, quickly remove your opponent from the building floor.
- Slaughter 6 or more items from the Adler Ranch - It's very easy. Search the building thoroughly before you go outside.
- Complete the mission with at least 80% accuracy - try to shoot your opponents when they are not moving. This will reduce the risk of missing with your shots.
