Americans resting in Red Dead Redemption 2

What you need to know to complete the main mission American resting: tricks, tips and secrets so that you have no problem in getting the gold medal.

Gold medal goals

  • Save Javier in 15 seconds or less.
  • Defeat Tommy in 1 minute and 30 seconds or less.

We find ourselves with an extremely short mission and with the easiest medal objectives. To activate it, you must simply go to Valentine and enter the village tavern, where the yellow mark that marks the position of Javier (the uncle of the mountain, when you dragged the horse's ass through the snow, remember?)

Come to the bar and you will see that Javier is very entertained with some ladies. A drunk will enter pushing and will pass what happens in any pub when a drunk enters pushing: everyone starts giving milk.

Get rid of the enemies with punches and make sure you understand how to cover and punch. Do not worry about the 15 seconds for now. Distribute tow for a while and you will see a short sequence.

Then, press the melee attack button as fast as you can and run towards the big man. This is where the 15 seconds for Javier comes into play: it's the time you have to let go of the one who has you on hold and get close to Tommy to punch him.

You have 90 seconds to block their attacks, counterattack and shoot down if you want to complete the other goal of the gold medal. Give him milk until you both fall into the mud, záfate of the giant and keep pounding until you hear a satisfying "crash" that signals a hopeful concussion.

You will see a sequence with Dutch and a new character. The mission will be completed once it has finished and they will warn you about some bounty hunters who are behind the band.
