A Fork in the Road is the 65th main story mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of A Fork in the Road Main Quest including all Gold Medals for 100% completion.
A Fork in the Road is unlocked after completing Fleeting Joy.
Quest Giver: N/A
Chapter: 5 or 6
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Complete within 3 minutes 5 seconds
Starting Location: Saint Denis, Lemoyne
This mission is unique in that it is essentially just a sequence of cutscenes triggered by approaching Sadie Adler’s waypoint for the mission Icarus and Friends. It can be triggered at the end of chapter 5 or early in chapter 6, whenever you approach the waypoint. As such there is no specific location where it begins, but you’ll know it when a cinematic starts in the middle of the city for no apparent reason. If you are on a horse you’ll begin to come to a stop, start coughing and get down from your saddle. Once down, or if you’re on foot already, you’ll have a coughing fit and collapse.
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete within 3 minutes 5 seconds
Skip the first two cinematics. Someone will drag you out of the road and get you back on your feet. They will lead you to a doctor, so press forward as soon as you can to follow them while coughing and drifting at the edge of consciousness. Keep pressing forward and you will go around a corner after him. When you reach the doctor’s office he will direct you inside, and even give you $10 if you are out of money.
Once inside, you’ll talk to the receptionist before the doctor will see you. This seems like a cinematic, but you just have to let it play out.
The doctor directs you into his office. Stagger in that direction.
Once inside, walk toward the green chair on the left side of the room and press the / button to sit as soon as you get the prompt.
Skip the next cinematic. The doctor will give you a shot to get you back on your feet, but from now until the end of the game your stamina core will drain far more quickly than it did before. As soon as you have control again, pick a direction and start walking away from the doctor’s office.
You will hallucinate fragments of dialogue from other characters as you walk slowly down the road. Keep going until you see a deer run into an intersection.
The deer will run off down the road and disappear.
Unusually, there is no indication that the mission has ended other than a journal entry. If your waypoints have reappeared on your map, you’ll know the mission is over. The gold medal requirements are pretty forgiving, so if you waste no time this gold should be a piece of cake.
This finishes A Fork in the Road main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest That’s Murfee Country starts.
