Outlaws From the West is the 1st main story mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of Outlaws From the West Main Quest including all Gold Medals for 100% completion.
Outlaws From the West triggers automatically when you start the game.
Quest Giver: N/A
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Take no damage during the shootout
- Loot 6 or more items from Adler Ranch
- Complete with at least 80% accuracy
Starting Location: Colter, Ambarino
Arthur and Dutch are going on a scouting mission to look for supplies. Follow Dutch on your horse until you meet Micah who will tell you about a homestead ahead. Micah will lead the two of you to the farm. Hitch your horse when directed, then hide in the cattle shed to the left of the door. Get into cover and wait for Dutch to make his move.
Dutch lures Several members of the O’Driscoll gang out of the cabin, while Micah discovers a body in the wagon. When prompted, select your Cattleman Revolver from the weapon wheel. At any point draw your weapon and fire, but choose your moment wisely because there are two gold medal requirements that begin here.
- GOLD MEDAL: Take no damage during the shootout
- GOLD MEDAL: Complete with at least 80% accuracy
Be sure to get back into cover between shots and don’t shoot until you’re sure of your shot. Luckily once you start shooting, so will Dutch and Micah so you won’t be on your own. There are four gang members on the ground, a fifth in the window above the porch, and a sixth that will bust out of the outhouse to your left, late in the firefight. Be careful when you come out of cover, because you don’t have access to your Dead Eye ability yet, and if you take any damage, you will fail the medal requirements.
Search the Cabin
Once the fight is over, Dutch will call you to search the cabin that the O’Driscolls were hiding in.
- GOLD MEDAL: Loot 6 or more items from Adler Ranch
There are lots of items to pick up in the cabin, so this shouldn’t be too hard. Look for objects on shelves and counters as well as several cabinets to search. Also search the chest and the nightstand next to the bed, as well as climb up to the loft for some ammunition. Don’t leave the cabin until you have found at least six different items.
Investigate the Barn
Go outside to meet Dutch and he will tell you to search the barn for anything else of use.
Shortly after entering, you will be ambushed from above! Time for some fisticuffs.
Go through the melee tutorial while Dutch watches in amusement.
Once you’ve defeated the last O’Driscoll, Dutch will ask you to beat information out of him. Alternate between questions and beatings until he talks. At the end Dutch will give you the choice of killing him or letting him go. After you choose, pick up your gun and hat, and learn how to handle a skittish horse through a tutorial.
Lead the horse to the hitching post and tie him up.
Investigate the Noise Inside the House
As soon as you tie the horse up, you hear sounds of commotion inside the house.
Go back inside and you will see an extended cinematic that introduces Mrs. Sadie Adler, and at the end of the cinematic the mission will be complete, and you will automatically begin the next mission.
This finishes Outlaws From the West main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest Enter, Pursued by a Memory starts.
