The First Shall Be The Last is a mission from Red Dead Redemption 2's second chapter.

For more help, our Red Dead Redemption 2 walkthrough explains how to complete the game's many story missions.

The First Shall Be The Last

The First Shall Be The Last objectives:

  • Silently kill the Bounty Hunters with the river with Javier
  • Shoot the rope to free Sean
  • Get 10 headshots
  • Complete the mission without taking any health items

This mission unlocks after completing a handful of other story missions around the camp throughout Chapter 2. If it hasn't unlocked yet, do those until it does.

You need to make your way to just above Blackwater. Don't worry about the bounty notice when you enter the region - as long as you head straight to the mission start point, you shouldn't run into trouble.

This is a fairly straightforward mission. Go to the edge of the cliff where noted on the map to see a boat, and follow your fellow crew until it pulls up. As instructed, wait until you can stealth attack the left of the two guards, and follow round up into the valley.

From here it devolves into a firefight. Keep cover where you can, and use the mini-map to narrow down enemy locations. Dead Eye will help here too, both here and in the camp that follows. Once clear, shoot down Sean's rope and then cut him free.

Once the mission is over, feel free to loot the bodies there. Be warned though - we had Bounty Hunters ride up to the camp shortly after and take us down, so be on the look out for adversaries.
