Dear Uncle Tacitus is the 63rd main story mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of Dear Uncle Tacitus Main Quest including all Gold Medals for 100% completion.
Dear Uncle Tacitus starts automatically after completing Paradise Mercifully Departed.
Quest Giver: N/A
Region: New Hanover
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Leave Shady Belle without being detected by the Pinkertons
- Complete within 8 minutes
Starting Location: Van Horn Trading Post, New Hanover
Look for the gang at Shady Belle
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete within 8 minutes
Arthur will come ashore at the Van Horn Trading Post, well north of Shady Belle.
There will be a horse tied up at the top of the stairs. Borrow this one “temporarily” until you can catch up with your caravan.
Follow the waypoint path down to Shady Belle.
On the table in the west room will be a letter addressed to “Uncle Tacitus”.
Reading the letter will reveal that the group has moved to Lakay.
At that moment, a Pinkerton patrol will arrive to see if there has been any activity at Shady Belle. Just their luck, they’ve found some. You can either eliminate them all, but sneaking out is a better idea since you’re working under a time limit, as well as the other gold medal requirement.
- GOLD MEDAL: Leave Shady Belle without being detected by the Pinkertons
Sneak out behind the Pinkerton that enters your room, and go out the front door. Jump on your horse and follow the waypoint. There will be a short cutscene as you travel to Lakay.
Search the yellow objective area and find Pearson, Abigail and Sadie working on dinner.
This finishes Dear Uncle Tacitus main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest Fleeting Joy starts.
