Red Dead Redemption 2 - We Loved Once and True

How to complete We Loved Once and True in Red Dead Redemption 2.

We Loved Once and True 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.

We Loved Once and True

The We Loved Once and True quest has multiple steps.

Part 1 - Letter

This mission can be taken after reading a letter by your bed in camp, which for us appeared after the first Money Lending and Other Sins.

Part 2 - Meeting Mary again

Read the letter and the next part of the quest will appear on your map, just north of Valentine. During the cutscene, you have a choice to help or not - decide to help her.

Part 3 - Bringing Jamie home

We Loved Once and True III objectives:

  • Peacefully convince the Chelonians to let you take Jamie
  • Return Jamie to Mary within 2 minutes

Travel to the faraway mountain top destination to find the group. How you respond to their questions is entirely up to you, but either way Jamie will flee.

This is a scripted chase - meaning Jamie will go the same route and speed every time, so don't stress too much about catching up with him.

The PC version has seen several new additions, including a photo mode, Landmarks of Riches Treasure Map, The Elemental Trail Treasure Map and the End of the Earth mission. If you're looking for more help in general, our Red Dead Redemption 2 mission list walkthrough can help provide pointers with the story. If you're looking for things to find, there are Killer Clue Piece locations, High Stakes Treasure Map locations, Jack Hall Gang Treasure Map locations, Red Dead Redemption 2 Le Tresor Des Morts and the Poisonous Trail Treasure Map locations too. Our in-depth systems explainers includes hunting perfect pelts, hides and skins as well as all Legendary Animal locations and Legendary Fish locations, or all Gunslinger locations, too. Finally, here's a list of Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes .

Eventually you'll stop at some train tracks, and you'll be trained in drawing your weapon. Squeeze the right trigger then fully press it, and aim for his arm. Don't worry if you miss - you'll get another chance if things go wrong.

Afterward, simply ride Jamie to the destination on the map to wrap up the mission.
