The following chapter of Red Dead Redemption 2 contains the walkthrough of the Uncle's Bad Day mission. After finishing work on the barn, Uncle, John and Charles spend the night celebrating. In the morning John discovers that Uncle was kidnapped by the Skinners.
How to unlock this mission: After completing "A Quick Favor for an Old Friend" mission.
Walkthrough: Once the cut-scenes end, join Charles in search of Uncle. As soon as you reach the Skinner's hideout, take out your bow and kill one of the enemies. Afterwards, continue travelling - you will stumble upon an enemy patrol. Even though Charles recommends waiting for them to pass, it is worth to take out the bow and kill several of them with an arrow to the head.
Follow your companion and you will come across a cart that drags one of the gang's victims. Follow the vehicle, and when it stops kill the driver with a headshot. Get on top of the boulder and use the binoculars to look at the enemy camp. You will be attacked by two enemies - save Charles during the Dead Eye sequence.
An encounter with a large group of enemies await you now. Once you kill some of them, approach Uncle and remove him from the fire. You now need to escort your companions - the escape route is simple, but you will encounter numerous enemies on your way. If you care about getting a gold medal, you need to focus on speed and quick elimination of enemies.
Once you reach the horses, wait for your companions to communicate that it is time to escape. Once that happens, mount your horse and follow Charles. You will run into a group of enemies, but they should not pose a threat. Once you leave the forest, you will reach the ranch and the mission will be completed.
How to acquire a gold medal in Uncles bad day?
- Get 5 headshots with a bow - Start completing this goal from the beginning of the mission, by killing the enemies in the forest and the one steering the cart.

- Finish with at least 80% accuracy - a classic challenge in RDR2.
- Complete the mission without using any healing items.
