Talk to Sadie
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete within 9 minutes
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete the mission without taking any health items
As always, skip this cinematic. Meet up with Sadie on the docks, and you’ll catch the end of an argument with Abigail about why she isn’t coming with you on the rescue. You’ll push off and start heading towards the island in short order.
Start rowing straight for the waypoint indicator. As you approach you’ll trigger another cinematic which you should skip.
Stay low and follow Sadie to the watch tower.
Climb up the ladder and take him out with a stealth kill.
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete with at least 80% accuracy
Then pull out your binoculars and look to the south where the chain gang next to the red barn works in the fields.
Sadie will take you to take out the two guards so you can go get John, so break out your sniper rifle and hit them with a pair of Dead Eye headshots.
- GOLD MEDAL: Get headshots on both Prison Guards when sniping from the tower
Immediately jump over the railing and start running towards the chain gang.
As you approach, you will trigger another cinematic which you should skip. Looks like Marston wasn’t on the chain gang today. Time for plan B.
Take your hostage to the front gates as quickly as possible. Sadie will disarm any other guards that you encounter along the way.
Some more painfully than others.
As you approach with your human shield, you’ll see a number of guards manning the walkway above and a cinematic will start, which you should skip.
Arthur offers a trade of John Marston for his guard hostage. A few moments later they bring him out, and he and Sadie start running for the cover near the bridge.
- GOLD MEDAL: Escape to the boat within 2 minutes 45 seconds
You’ll begin in the middle of a firefight, and you will have to take care of the immediate threat before John and Sadie will move from cover. Break out the sniper rifle again and thin out the guards with rifles on the walkway.
When Sadie and John run, follow them. The goal is to only take cover when absolutely necessary, then only as long as it takes to deal with any guards that are approaching you. You should be running at all other times, otherwise you will never make the gold medal requirement. As soon as you get across the bridge, there will be a huge clump of guards following you to thin out.
Rather than taking cover behind the crates, run a little bit further so you can use the brick building for cover. This will prevent any snipers that you missed taking out earlier from being able to kill you.
As soon as it’s (relatively) safe to do so, turn around and keep running. Among your priority targets should be any mounted guards that try to flank you, which you can kill while on the run.
The next hard cover is some crates at the end of the fields. Take a second to kill any guards that have gained any ground on you, then as soon as John and Sadie move, keep running!
As soon as you reach the boat, a cinematic will begin, which you should skip.
While Sadie rows you and John to safety, you are standing in the boat with your sniper rifle to kill any guards that might follow you. Watch out for enemies ahead and to the left of you. You’ll probably have to take out four or five of them before you’ll be safe. Another cinematic will play for the trip back. Skip this as well. Get on your horse and follow Sadie to your new camp at Beaver Hollow, skipping the travel cinematic which should also take care of the ending cinematic.
John is safe, and you had a nice day out on the lake with Sadie. All in all, a pretty good day.
