Quest Giver: John Marston
Region: New Hanover
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Deliver the wagon to the drop off within 1 minute 45 seconds
Starting Location: Horseshoe Overlook, New Hanover
Talk to John Marston
This quest marker won’t pop up for you right away until you return to camp.
Susan Grimshaw will approach you as you’re walking by to tell you that John wanted to talk to you, at which point his marker will appear near the campfire.
Marston has an ingenious plan for a train robbery, and he needs your help.
Arthur is genuinely impressed, and a little surprised. To pull it off, he’s going to need a few things, and the most important one is an oil wagon. You’re going to have to go hijack one and bring it to the drop off point near Dewberry Creek.
Steal an Oil Wagon
- GOLD MEDAL: Deliver the wagon to the drop off within 1 minute 45 seconds
The gold medal requirement makes this mission tougher than it would have been normally, but it doesn’t complicate things unnecessarily. The Cornwall oil wagons will be labeled on your map, and can sometimes be found out on the road where they’re easier to hijack, as well as potentially closer to the drop off point.
There will always be at least one oil wagon at the Heartland Oil Fields so if you can’t catch one while its out and about, check there.
At this point, the job couldn’t be easier. Wait till nightfall.
Hop over the wall.
Sneak to the driver’s seat.
Drive like hell.
The second you see riders following you however, instantly prioritize them and use Dead Eye to kill them all. After all, you’re sitting on a huge tank of flammable liquid. It does not respond well to bullets.
Drive to the drop off zone, and the mission is over.
This finishes Pouring Forth Oil – II main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest A Fisher of Men starts.
