Chores are missing

About 40 hours in, chapter 3. I'm reading about some of the bugs and realize my game is somewhat broken. I have the missing characters bug (was wondering who the hell all these characters being mentioned were, I don't see any of them in my game), and also have never seen an available "chore" in camp. The concept has never been introduced or mentioned in the game this far in, there are no icons on the map, and options are not available when searching any of the areas. People who report clearing their cache and getting the characters back are saying they are able to see chores for first time. Anyone else seeing this?

the chores icons are quite hard to spot on the map, they are small black dots in camp. Chores include chopping wood, getting water, moving hay bales to the horses and moving sacks over to pearson. If you can't see the dots on the map try finding the hay bales or something and seeing if it gives you the prompt to pick it up. You will get dead eye experience as a reward for each chore completed. 

TBF It doesn't help that the game doesn't mention it to you. I went through a whole play through without even realising you could complete chores in camp. I'm only now doing it on my second play through.

I believe that you also get a small material reward if you do all the camp chores in a day.  some chores dots icons dont show up unless you are basically on top of them (like the water bucket).

I'm at the tail-end of chapter 2, I've done the wood chopping, hay bales, food sacks and the water bucket in a day and I haven't seen any material rewards yet. Could I be screwing up the water bucket? I notice there's 3 points to fill once you pick it up by the hitching posts but as soon as I fill one point, Arthur sets the bucket down. Are there more buckets?

You get dead eye experience and positive honor, as well as unique dialogue from gang/camp members

Same here, but I figured I just wasn't paying attention.

I thought it was just for honor...

I have seen others doing these chores, yet it doesn't show on my map, nor does it allow me to do them while others are already doing them.  I am the erron boy for all items.  I am getting tired of then neediness of those in camp.  Fully modified camp and still get, "Hey Arthur could you fetch me ..................." "some root for the horses" or "a harmonica" or "some herbs for cooking".

lol, wait until you donate $9.50 to the tithing box, find your first (perfect) rat carcass and donate it for "provisions" (So that's what the secret ingredient in Pearson's stew is!) only to have Dutch come at you the next day about "not contributing to the box - WHY HAVE YOU STOPPED WORKING FOR US, MY SON?!"

Ingrate! I donated a perfect rat! (heehee), I stopped by the tithing box and donated another $20. "That's my boy!" I hear Dutch cheer in the background...

I've got the same glitch.  The chores are there, but there's no black dot. If you look at the back of the wagon nearest the horse corral there are bails of hay and sacks (???) and approaching these will give you a prompt to "pick up" then instructions on what to do with them. Look for the stump with the axe for wood chopping chore.

Donate money to the tithing box in $20 increments, exactly, over and over and it boosts your honor rating and pleases the f&#k out of Dutch. Has to be exactly $20, and you'll hear a higher pitched bell ring. Pays off much better than giving large sums.
