Red Dead 2 Choices and Consequences Guide

Kill Or Spare O Driscoll Bandit
Your first choice will be to kill or spare an O Driscoll Bandit in a barn.

Spare – He will leave and so far he hasn’t come back into play. It is possible he just adds another man to the Discoll camp attack later, but we aren’t sure at the moment.

Kill – Arthur will tell Dutch it has been taken care of.

Train Robbery Choice
At the end of the train robbery you have another choice. Spare the guards or kill them, Dutch lets you make the call.

Spare – They will take the train to its intended destination.

Kill – You off the men and they don’t come back to haunt you later. This is considered a dishonorable move by the game.

The Man From Blackwater
While in town with Unc and the girls a man from Blackwater will spot you. Chase him down and you can help him up from the cliff or let him fall.

Spare – If you help him up he will thank you and say everything is cool now. He will also give you a pen. This is an honorable deed.

Kill – You step on his hands and he falls to his death. This is a dishonorable deed. If you loot his corpse he has some cash and a gold wedding ring.

Return the horse to the man in town for more honor.

Bear Hunting
You need to choose to lay the bait or split up and search for the bear.

Split Up – With this option you and Hosea split up to look for clues about the bear. You will find a clue and the bear will find Hosea. He will run and you need to shoot the bear to scare it away.

Leave Bait – IF you leave the bait, the bear will come and you shoot it. It will run and no one will be hurt.

With both options you can stay behind and track the bear if you wish.

Bar choice
When you return to the bar with Lenny you will get a choice.

Charm – If you charm him he will walk away. You and Lenny get drunk and dance, have a slapping match and dunk that stranger in the trough. You can drown him by holding the drown button, just hold his head down without drowning him and he will escape. Woke up in jail with this choice.

Threaten – You tell the man you will rip his head clear off his shoulders if he doesn’t leave. He gets the hint and leaves. You and Lenny get tanked and then you have to find Lenny. You can drown the man in the trough if you want, just hold his head down to let him escape and hold the button to drown him. I ended up running from the law, which was hilarious and woke up next to some train tracks.

Stage Coach Robbery
You need to decide if you want to attack at night or during the day.

Day – You will have to rob the house yourself. Make sure to not leave anything open, if you do they will know you robbed them. You get plenty of time, so feel free to check all rooms and upstairs. After, you will get onto the coach and Hosea will join you.

Night – You rob the house at night while Hosea grabs the coach from the barn. There’s plenty of items to loot. Make sure you crouch at all times to avoid waking up those asleep inside.

Help Mary Or Dont Help Mary

Help Mary
If you choose to help Mary you will have to rescue her brother. When you go to save him, you have two main response paths to take. You can choose to take them seriously or as a joke. If you take them seriously, you get to speak with Jamie without serious issue. Once you track him down, aim to shoot the gun from his hand.

Don’t Help Mary
Arthur says there is just too much history and says no. She will tell him she misses him and Arthur will say he does as well. There is no mission if you say no.

Accept Fishing Or Decline Fishing

Accept Fishing
If you accept the fishing invitation you will go fishing with Dutch and Hosea. You’ll have to ride to a nearby lake where the group borrow a boat and head into the center of the lake. You get to bring the boat back to your camp. Boats usually cost $450 so it’s a worthwhile trip.

Decline Fishing – You just head back to camp alone and the other two go fishing.

Right Or Left

Choose Right
If you choose to go right, you will need to knock out and hogtie two Moonshiners. Mission goes without a hitch.

Choose Left
If you choose to go left, you and Bill knock out two Moonshiners. Assuming you don’t get caught, the mission ends cleanly.

Race Or Decline

Race
If you choose to race Dutch back to camp, you have to beat him in a race. Win or lose, he’s happy.

Decline
Not sure why you would decline, but if you do leave us a comment and let us know what happens.

Shoot The Dynamite Or Send Lenny

Shoot The Dynamite
If you shoot the Dynamite you will blow up a few of the enemies. There is a large fire fight and you have to snipe a guy on a Gatling gun before getting your loot.

Send Lenny
If you choose to send Lenny he enters the plantation and attracts the attention of 5 or 6 of the men. There’s still a large firefight that follows.

Lost Girl Or Harlot

Lost Girl
If you choose Lost Girl, Karen enters the bank and behaves like a lost girl. She heads inside, distracts the guards and it works fine.

Harlot
Karen will go into the bank acting drunk and making a scene. She will then pull her gun and you all enter, no problems here.

Crack The Safe Or Blow The Safe

Crack The Safe
If you choose to Crack each safe you will need to complete a small mini-game for each. If you are fast enough, you can crack every safe and make off with the maximum amount of cash. You get a total cut of $2,500.

Blow The Safe
Make sure you put dynamite on ALL the safes, you only need to light one fuse to get them all to go. One of the doors for me looked like it didn’t blow open, but I could still get cash out of it. The total take here is also $2,500.

Help Mary Or Dont Help Mary 2

Help Mary
If you choose to help Mary again, she will ask you to save her father. It’s a simple mission, just trailing her father. You can buy the broach or beat it out of the guy at the end, one is positive honor, the other negative. At the end you can go on a date to the theater or leave Mary alone.

Don’t Help Mary
Arthur says he can’t. Mary will say she misses Arthur and Arthur will say he misses her as well. Then he says it’s done now and walks away.

Kill Anthony Foreman Or Spare Him
Tilly wants him to tell his gang to leave her alone while Susan wants him dead. Don’t forget to loot the house after.

Kill
Arthur says that he agrees that you guys can’t take chances with men like him and kills Foreman.

Spare
This is what Tilly wants and you shoo him away without killing him. I will update later if this comes back to bite me.

Sneak Into The Cave Or Use Dynamite To Flush Them Out
When you are searching for a new camp site, you run into a cave full of crazies. You get the choice to flush them out or sneak in.

Use Dynamite
Arthur will say That Dynamite is safer. You sneak to the cave entrance use Dynamite to lure the enemies out. You only kill one with the initial explosion and more run out, but you have to time the dynamite to get them. Be careful of the melee enemies, if they get you it is a one-shot kill.

Sneak In
If you choose to sneak in, you can take 5-6 of them out before you are spotted. There are a lot of melee enemies in here, so it’s probably easier to flush them out with dynamite.

Absolve Debt And Give Money Or Absolve Debt - Money Lending And Other Sins VI
This one is pretty rough, but you still get the choice.

Absolve Debt
Arthur says the debt is canceled and the woman thanks you. She says maybe next time you guys could do it differently, and not get a man killed working off his debts.

Absolve Debt And Pay Them
If you choose to absolve the debt and pay them money. She seems happy that you paid but still upset that her husband died. She suggests you and your friends claim money differently.

Help Rains Fall Or Dont
This isn’t your fight, but you can hop into if you want.

Help Rain’s Fall
If you choose to help Rain’s Fall you will receive an honor boost. You will then have the opportunity to do a series of missions for Rains Fall. Which leads to a series of missions for Captain Monroe.

Don’t Help Rain’s Fall
Arthur will say he can’t get involved; this isn’t his fight.

Help Captain Monroe Or Dont

Help Captain Monroe
Agree to help Captain Monroe and you will unlock new missions you can do with him at the reservation.

Don’t Help Captain Monroe
Nothing happens. You tell the Captain he’s on his own

Help Sadie Or Dont
Sadie wants to take out some O Driscoll boys and wants your help.

Help Sadie

Don’t Help Sadie
If you say no to Sadie she will ride off alone. She will still agree to help John and his family escape.

Help John Or Retrieve The Money
You have the option to help out John or go back for some the money.

Help John

Go Back For The Money
You hand John your hat and tell him to be safe as he leaves. Now it is time for some payback. You go to get the cash but don’t get to keep it.

Bet On Charles Or Bet Against Charles

Bet On Charles
