Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have made a gold medal guide for each mission. You can find them all below along with their difficulty ratings.

 

If you're still struggling with a mission, leave me a comment on here or on the video and I'll help you out the best I can.

 

All of the videos have commentary.

 

I have made a playlist of the 70 missions I think you'll have the 'easiest' time getting the gold medal on for the 'Gold Rush' trophy.

 

 

Enjoy.

Hi there,

 

I'm just finishing up my gold medal guide videos RDR2, just the epilogue part 2 to go, so I thought I post the playlist link on here for you all.

 

All of the videos have commentary and the difficulty of each mission is stated on the thumbnail.

 

I'll post the full list on here when they're all done.

 

Enjoy.

 

 

I've used several of your videos to guide me through some of the missions - great job on these.

I used a couple of these but its I think its worth pointing out that your not using replay in them. I know in some of the later videos you mention it but it would be nice to know from the get go to avoid confusion. Unless you've redone them on replay? Either way, using your videos I was able to do them all on replays :D

Why would he have to use replay?

Missions are a lot harder on replay thanks to being given a horse made from sticks, and not having access to weapons/stats/tonics that you actually had when you first attempted the mission.

 

They're generally a lot harder in replays due to this, so these guides (while still great) occasionally will be misleading or you'll find it impossible to replicate within a time limit, for example.

That's on the game for not providing people with the proper tools to be able to complete those missions without barely eking through (in some cases), not the guides themselves.

I'm completely confused as why you have written this reply.

 

First of all, the missions are not a lot harder on replay, yes, some of them are a bit more difficult, but to use such a broad term as 'Missions are a lot harder' is not correct. I have accounted for this in my videos, I will mention little tips for doing it on replay and some of the videos are missions done via replay any way.

 

My guides still hold up whether you are doing the mission during your main playthrough or on a replay. I've put the extra effort in to do a commentary and try and help people out with the little details of the missions, plus I'm always in the comments helping people out who may be having trouble with the replays.

 

People will read your comment and completely disregard my guides, because you made them out to be useless in some cases. Even Gazdan who mentioned the whole replay issue originally said "Either way, using your videos I was able to do them all on replays".

You missed the 'still great' and 'occasionally' parts then?

 

Your guides are great for most of the missions, but there are some which are extremely difficult and frankly not worth the effort on replays because of how strict they were with what R* give you. That's on R*, not you, but just mentioning it. I know a lot of people who started a new game just for gold medals because it was quicker to start the whole game again than try and get them on replay.

I didn't miss the 'still great' and appreciate you saying that, but it would be naive of you not to think that most people would only take in the negative part of your comment.

In that case, I sincerely apologise. I was just trying to explain the difference to the guy above between first plays and replays. I didn't mean to do it at the expsense of discrediting your guide!

I started playing day one and got too far in (for me to happily start over) and went passed the Friends with Benefits trophy. I will have to play the story again through chapter 4 to get that one trophy.

 

I only have a hand full of golds that came naturally and planned on going back on replay. I just wanted to story the game before checking out help vids.

 

Now, because of the discussion here lol, I see they gimped replays. I never did one yet and this is the first I've heard. So thanks for the discussion of that.

 

 

I checked out one of your vids to see your style and it was very good. I will for sure be using them when I figure out which route for golds I want to take. Kind of leaning on making the Friends with Benefits playthrough a golds run as well, instead of replays.

 

 

/Thanks :applause:

Great guides, Ben. As someone who is not good at timed missions or accuracy based objectives.....I'm just going to shoot for the easy and medium rated missions for my 71 gold medals because when I even try the hard rated ones I get super frustrated and want to quit playing the game. :mad:

 

As far as the replay side of things, I totally get what that one guy was saying but when I fail I just automatically know to reload my last save to try again. I'm not even going to go back and attempt replays in chapter 1 or chapter 2. Just moving forward from here on out for the gold medals from mid chapter 2 on to the end of game. I have about 20 gold medals so far using the videos from Ben. I am in the last mission for chapter 3 so about to enter chapter 4 soon... thanks again for all the tips and commentary.

The margin for completing An American Pastoral Scene is unbelievably thin, even when you're not playing that mission on replay. When I timed it, it said about 4:50-55 on my phone by the time I hit the cutscene just before the final gun fight. That gives you maybe 1 minute to clear all of the enemies, *and* have to wait for Micah to casually stroll back to the coach to open the cargo.

 

Insane.

 

I somehow managed to get it done last night despite the time on my phone saying somewhere in the 6:50-58 range of time (though I am not sure how much of that time was waiting on the black screen after skipping the cutscenes).

I got what you are saying but I would still suggest picking a few earlier mission as they are the easiest gold medals to achieve, Eastbound, a quiet time, for example. I had a hard time to get gold medals on even some of the easy missions in the list (country pursuit, for example).

 

 

In the end I got 71 gold medal with only a few to spare. And I DID got gold medals for a few hard ones, including American Pastoral scene.

The New South might need to get bumped up to medium or easy - knowing you can restart the checkpoint involved with the first task until you get it, and it does nothing to the time limit involved with task number 2 makes the mission way easier, even on replay (which I had to do because the mission auto-started when I got too close to Dutch, and I hadn't saved from the previous mission - I have auto-save off).
