The Spines of America is the 13th main story mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of The Spines of America Main Quest including all Gold Medals for 100% completion.
The Spines of America is unlocked when you complete Paying a Social Call.
Quest Giver: Hosea
Region: New Hanover
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Loot everything from Carmody Dell
- Don’t get spotted
- Deliver the wagon to Emerald Ranch within 1 minute 10 seconds
Starting Location: Emerald Ranch, New Hanover
Travel to Emerald Ranch and approach Hosea and Seamus sitting on the bench to start the mission. Seamus tells you about a cousin of his who has a nice stagecoach and some money in the house that he’d like you to steal. If you manage this task, Seamus will act as a fence for stolen goods as well as allowing you to start crafting talismans for perks.
Go to Carmody Dell
Travel West to Carmody Dell, and leave your horses at the objective zone. Use your binoculars to scout out the area for any enemies.
- GOLD MEDAL: Don’t get spotted
Once you’re done scouting, you have the option of going in during the day or night. Of course since stealth is important for the gold medal requirement, its best to go in at night.
- GOLD MEDAL: Loot everything from Carmody Dell
At night, its much easier to avoid being spotted, allowing you to thoroughly rob the place.
In order to complete this requirement you must loot everything from the following locations:
- 1st Floor Bedroom
- Living Room
- 2nd Floor Bedroom
Return the Stagecoach to Emerald Ranch
- GOLD MEDAL: Deliver the wagon to Emerald Ranch within 1 minute 10 seconds
Hosea will be waiting for you outside with the stagecoach. All you have to do is drive it back to Emerald Ranch before the time runs out.
Choose either to return to the camp with Hosea or to stay there, and the mission will be complete.
