Red Dead Redemption 2 - A Quiet Time

A Quiet Time 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.

This is a mission from Dutch at the camp - complete enough missions at the camp and it'll appear. For us, it was when we completed Paying a Social Call.

First, take Lenny to the saloon in Valentine. Approach the bar and lean against it. During the cutscene, you have a range of options with how to deal with the rude customer - we recommend the charming approach to keep things civil.

From there, you'll get drunk and Lenny will keep disappearing. In-between each time you find him, there will be a bunch more jump cuts, then he'll go missing again.

Lenny will be located upstairs on the balcony the first time you lose him.

Straight after this, Lenny will be directly downstairs. Just head down and approach him as the two men try and fight him.

The final time is the hardest, as you walk around in first person and everyone looks like him. For us, it was simply a case of asking as many people as we could - press L2 and then Square (or X on Xbox) - until he finds you.

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 .

After that, there are a few more interactive but scripted scenes, and the mission ends with you high up on the hills not far from the camp.

Understandably, your stamina is quite low - we recommend resting (hold Triangle on PlayStation, or Y on Xbox) to crouch and recover some of it. Otherwise, eating the right provisions will set you straight.

Completing this mission unlocks Blessed Are The Meek? in Strawberry.
