Starting Location: Saint Denis, Lemoyne
Talk to Trelawny
Meet up with Trelawny in Saint Denis to run a con job on a riverboat casino, but first he thinks your outfit needs some work.
Follow Trelawny to the tailor, and buy the fine three-piece town suit, called ‘The Wittemore’. Luckily there will be no cost to you.
Next, follow Trelawny to the barber to get your hair cut and a proper shave, so that you don’t look like a vagrant.
Properly cleaned up, follow Trelawny to a carriage that will take you to the docks in style.
Unfortunately, you will have to leave your weapons behind, so be on your best behavior.
Trelawny lets you know that the dealer is in on the game, and Strauss will be giving you signals about how to bid, but in order to fulfill the gold medal requirements, you won’t be taking his directions. Keep walking with Trelawny until you sit down at the poker table.
- GOLD MEDAL: Win the game of Poker without Strauss’s help
Having the dealer in on the scam makes this gold medal requirement easy to achieve. The key is to not even wait for Strauss’s suggestions, and certainly never press the / button. On the first hand fold, because it is automatically a losing hand.
Most of the players will leave at this point, leaving you alone with Desmond Blythe. For this hand and every hand that follows, just keep going all-in until Blythe busts.
After he busts, he’ll bet his watch from the safe upstairs, and again go all in.
After you win again, follow the pit boss upstairs to get the watch. Conveniently, Javier will be posing as a guard and join the pit boss as an escort.
The pit boss will utter some casual racism while waving a gun around, greatly diminishing any remorse you might feel for his upcoming beating.
Wait for the pit boss to open the safe.
Javier will clock the other guard in the face, while you dissuade the pit boss from doing anything stupid.
Press / to disarm the pit-boss and take his gun, then loot the safe. As soon as you do, you will snap into Dead Eye.
Looks like the pit boss had two guns. I can’t say that I’m sorry things went this way.
Finish looting the safe, then follow Javier. Be sure to holster your gun out of view. He will lead you down two flights of stairs.
Keep following Javier into the main room, where Trelawny is having an argument at the bar with Blythe.
Just as you’re trying to defuse the situation, all hell breaks loose.
- GOLD MEDAL: After your cover is blown, escape the boat in under 35 seconds
- GOLD MEDAL: Get 5 headshots
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete the mission without taking any health items
This time limit is ridiculously tight. Immediately go into Dead Eye and try to get as many headshots as you can. There should be enough guards visible in the room to immediately get at least three on your first pass.
Get out of cover and immediately start moving towards the stairs. Go into Dead Eye and shoot the two guards coming down the stairs to complete your five headshots.
Ignore everything else, and sprint for the door to the right of the stairs, and turn left.
Follow Javier and Trelawny off the edge of the riverboat and into the river.
Another flawless Trelawny plan. Mission complete!
