Quest Giver: Dutch
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Headshot Gareth and Gerald Braithwaite
- Get 20 headshots
- Complete with at least 85% accuracy
- Complete the mission without taking any health items
Starting Location: Clemens Point, Lemoyne
Search for Jack
As you approach the camp, Dutch will call out to you to ask if you had seen Jack.
Abigail and Hosea think that the Braithwaites have taken her son, and you’re ready to ride out in force to take it back. Follow Dutch to the Braithwaite Manor.
I sure wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of this.
Dutch walks out to meet Gareth Braithwaite after warning John to stay calm during the encounter.
Looks like Dutch is more of a “Do what I say, not as I do” kinda guy.
Take Out the Guards
- GOLD MEDAL: Get 20 headshots
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete with at least 85% accuracy
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete the mission without taking any health items
Get into cover behind the cart right in front of you and start racking up the 20 headshots you’re going to need for a gold medal on this mission. A sniper rifle and copious Dead Eye would not go amiss here.
Continue to eliminate the guards until Dutch calls you to go with him and storm the manor to look for Jack.
Search each room that has a yellow target area, clearing them in turn.
When you kick in the door to the second room, be prepared for the guard who has taken cover behind the upended desk in the middle of the room.
When the lower floor is clear, Dutch will call you upstairs.
It seems that Catherine Braithwaite and a few of her boys have barricaded themselves in an upstairs room. What’s worse, more are coming in on horseback and wagons, with torches like angry villagers.
It makes them real easy to spot for sniping.
When targets in wagons roll in, it’s definitely an optimal time to use Dead Eye and clip them all at once.
Midway through the fight, Charles will call you to the right side of the house, where more Braithwaites are attacking. Go over and help him out
Continue until they start to run.
Clean up any fleeing enemies on which you have a clean shot to improve your headshot tally.
Then go over to John, who is ready to push his way into the room that Dutch and Hosea have covered from the other side.
You will push into the room…
…and immediately go into Dead Eye.
- GOLD MEDAL: Headshot Gareth and Gerald Braithwaite
Shoot both Gareth…
…and Gerald Braithwaite in the head.
Dutch wants some words with Catherine Braithwaite.
His diplomacy could perhaps use some work.
She eventually relents and tells Dutch where Jack is, giving the Van der Linde Gang their next target.
This finishes Blood Feuds, Ancient and Modern main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest The Battle of Shady Belle starts.
Next Up: The Battle of Shady Belle.
