This page of our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide contains a description of the mission Fleeting Joy. Arthur finds the other gang members in Lakay. Unfortunately, the joy does not last long, as the Pinkertons led by Milton appear and attack the camp.
How to unlock: Finish "Dear Uncle Tacitus".
Mission walkthrough: After the attack, crawl and follow Sadie. When you reach the hidden passage to the second hut, Arthur will fall into a frenzy and you start an automatic Dead Eye sequence. Kill at least two Pinkertons, including the machine gun operator.
Kill the survivors and run after Sadie. Kill the enemies together - but you'll soon have to return to the Gatling gun. Take control of it and deal with a huge wave of enemies. You have a giant firepower advantage over your enemies now, so you'll quickly repel the attack and complete the mission.
