You'll get this from Lenny at the camp after completing some opening Chapter 3 story missions.

Follow Lenny until you reach the abandoned house. Stay on horse back and focus on it, allowing you to sketch it in your book.

Stay put until a wagon appears nearby. Follow it at a distance as specified until you reach Shady Belle.

From here, make sure you have the Rolling Block sniper rifle from your horse, and cover by the gate (press R1 or right bumper). From here, you can scope out the property ahead. When Lenny asks you to find something useful, look just to the left of the property for a wagon filled with dynamite.

Out of the options given to you, we went for blowing up the dynamite. As soon as you do, enemies will start firing, but as long as you stay at the gate and use the sniper rifle, it's a simple case of picking off foes as they appear.

One or two might get close, but otherwise you just hang back. If you have trouble spotting any, then look out for the red of the reticule to help guide you. And when the machine gunner appears on the balcony, aim just above it to kill the person manning.

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 .

Once the enemies are down, the music will fade and you can press on. In the specified area, you'll want to find a wagon with crates of weapons inside. Climb up the back, and you can then progress to the final part of the mission.

As you are driving back, you'll be stopped not far from the gates. There's no pleasing them, so use Dead Eye the trio and move on.

Part way it'll switch to a cutscene making the journey quicker, bringing the mission to a close. You'll also receive a Bolt Action Rifle as a reward.
