Stuck in chapter 2 !?!

Recommended Posts

I have been playing regularly since the release and for about 2 weeks now, I keep playing and there are no story missions available. Except for the Javier Escuella mission in Blackwater. Of course I have tried a few times to reach Blackwater but it seems impossible. I have read in guides about the mission starring John Marston but have yet to see it offered at camp no matter how much I do. And it seems like I have done a lot...about 44% completion but still no missions. Do I need to keep trying to reach Blackwater or is there some other monumental achievement I should aspire to? Is there any way to turn the story back on? I am reluctant to start over from the beginning, I have a full stable of horses and lots of cash, a greatly upgraded camp and have done so many side missions. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, buckaroos!

You need to reach Javier near Blackwater to advance the story, but the game does a horrible job of guiding you to him safely. Open your map and you'll see a longer strip of land that is not red to the East of Javier. place your waypoint on the end of this strip and you can then cross the shallow water to Javier into the wanted territory.

huh.  I found it extremely easy to get to Javier, no encounters along the way.  Guess i was lucky :)

I got the missions for Javier and John to pop up at the same time.  I did notice that John's mission is daytime only, if you go there at evening or night it's greyed out, maybe that's the case here with the OP?

I didn't have any issues with reaching him for that mission in Blackwater. That area was red with the "Wanted Dead or Alive." I had read somewhere, that the game will allow you to do story missions in Wanted Dead or Alive states. After I finished that mission I tried coming back to explore that area. Each time along the road I'd venture in. And before I knew it I had 6+ people spawn on the road near me and quickly shoot me down. I gave up on trying to freely explore that area after 3 attempts. 

There was a similar post on this a week or so ago. Some other people posted that they had trouble getting to that mission spot, without running into spawns of law men. They had suggested not traveling on the roads to get to the mission spot on the map.

Hello everyone!!

sorry for my english, in advance...

I'm facing problems to finish chapter 2. In my map I just have that mission in blackwater, where I still wanted dead or alive and cannot go there, they kill me in a few seconds. No other primary missions are in my map, just the other ones, like that to help the photographer.

And this is it... no more things to do... I think that I missed something... the game still in this stage...

could someone help me? What should I do?

Yes, you can do this one.  This is the "The First Shall be the Last" mission.  Go to the marker on the map, it will be safe to go there and do the mission without being killed.  Just follow the route there and don't go anywhere else in the red zone.

I just went to the yellow icons on screen, you have to go the sneaky way, and then after you cross the river stay very close to it on the cliff, you will soon come upon the guys and the mission will get started, its a fun one.
In the meantime, do any stranger missions, and hunting you can, get the buck antler trinket, work on your satchel, go get some gold, upgrade your camp, etc.. so that as soo n as you start chapter 3, you have the max satchel, that holds 99 items each, this makes the rest of the game much smoother.

Just did this last night.  You don't need to sneak, it's insanely simple.  Mark the location with your GPS, follow the red line to the mission.  don't deviate from that route or you'll get dead.  I picked a herb on the way that was maybe 20 yards off the road, got shot in the head for it.  respawned and followed the red line and had no issues.

Hmm not me, I was able to pick lots of Currant and Thyme on my way and I drifted a lot, I just stayed near the cliff edge when I could.
