Welcome to the New World is the 58th main story mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). This walkthrough will guide you through all objectives of Welcome to the New World Main Quest including all Gold Medals for 100% completion.
Welcome to the New World begins automatically after completing Banking, the Old American Art.
Quest Giver: N/A
Gold Medal Requirements:
- Do not fall behind while walking with the chain gang
- Get 10 headshots
Starting Location: Guarma
Arthur wakes up on a beach, somewhere in the Atlantic. All you can do is walk down the beach and hope you find someone.
Eventually you will spot the smoke from a campfire, and some familiar faces.
Your luck soon turns from bad to worse however, so don’t get comfortable.
- GOLD MEDAL: Do not fall behind while walking with the chain gang
Captured and locked into a chain gang, you have to follow the line continuously. As the last person in the chain, just keep shuffling forward and follow the line as it turns to complete this gold medal objective. Eventually you will be rescued by the rebels in a cutscene. You will grab a pistol and be able to help kill your captors.
- GOLD MEDAL: Get 10 headshots
As always, use Dead Eye to line up multiple head shots at once. Be careful however, as even if you’re playing this mission for the first time, you will have no tonics to restore Dead Eye during this mission.
Reinforcements will arrive, prompting your retreat. After running from what appears to be a huge army, your mysterious rescuer leads you to a cache of guns and an elevated position from which you may stage your defense.
Keep going for headshots, and use your Dead Eye as it recharges when you can get multiple hits at once.
Keep an eye on your flanks, as soldiers will push up the hillside and try to catch you unaware.
Eventually when you have killed most of the troops, they will try to retreat. Take the chance to fire off one last Dead Eye and get as many headshots as you can in the last seconds of the mission.
In a cinematic, Hercule will introduce himself and explain the situation on Guarma with Colonel Fussar and his forces, and lead you to his camp where you can get some rest and resupply for the next mission.
This finishes Welcome to the New World main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest A Kind and Benevolent Despot starts.
