Go talk to Charles, then get on your horse and ride north to the waypoint. He warns you that you’re heading into Murfee Brood country, which sounds appropriately ominous.
When Charles asks if you should take the horses or go by canoe, be aware that if you go by canoe you won’t have access to your saddle to change your weapons for the length of the mission, and even though he says it will be faster it really isn’t. Its better all around to take your horse.
After a riding cinematic, you’ll dismount when you hear Murfees talking at a camp ahead. Follow Charles while remaining crouched to stay quiet. Charles will say to take out one while he takes out the other. Use your bow, throwing knife, or tomahawk to kill one of the Murfees silently. Might as well start going for headshots for the gold medal requirement while you’re at it.
Follow Charles again, and he will lead you to a cave where the Murfees appear to be holed up. Seems like it would be perfect for your purposes once you kick out the Murfees and… redecorate.
Charles asks if you want to sneak into the cave or flush them out with dynamite. It would make sense tactically to stay stealthy as long as possible on this mission. First of all, there are a ridiculous number of Murfees in that cave, and a combination of inbreeding and hard living has made them hard to kill. They tend to rush you with melee weapons which will decimate your Health meter, or sometimes even kill you in a single hit. Its much easier to get headshots and maintain your accuracy when you can take your time to set them up, as well.
Approach the cave stealthily, and take out the Murfee sentry in the entranceway with your bow. It may be challenging to get a headshot while he’s bent over cutting up a corpse. Use Dead Eye to make shot easier.
Entering the cave, there will be another Murfee just ahead of you upon which you can get another headshot.
The next pair of Murfees are very close together, but you can drop down behind them from a ledge above. You will be able to get at least one headshot, but even using a bow you might be detected. I’d suggest instead bringing out your pistol and tagging each in Dead Eye to be sure you get all the headshots before things go sideways. And be sure to keep an eye on your mini-map for the other two who are just around the stone column next to you.
Once the Murfees are alerted to your assault on their cave, they’ll come out in f0rce. I’d suggest changing to a strong handgun or shotgun, and continuing to aim for headshots as they rush you. When you have groups of three or more in close proximity, don’t hesitate to break out the Dead Eye to wipe them out quickly before they sap your Health.
Another important point, always be watching your mini-map for flankers. The layout of the tunnels allows them to easily get behind you and attack when you least expect it. If you see one of them running past you on the other side of the cave, you’re about to get wrecked. Back up and deal with them immediately, or if you’re overwhelmed pull back up the tunnel so that you can regroup before the assault.
There are only about 20 or so Murfees in the cave so its key you get as many headshots as you can.
Once the area is clear, you’ll discover a hostage at the back of the cave. You’re going to have to calm her down using the defuse dialog option before she’ll come anywhere near you. Open the cage.
- GOLD MEDAL: Deliver Meredith to her mother within 2 minutes
Skip the cinematic where you rescue her. Outside, get on your horse and hoist her up behind you, then head back to Annesburg quickly.
Stop in the yellow objective area and skip the ending cinematic to bring things to a close.
