An Honest Mistake Walkthrough
Molly O'Shea calls out to Arthur Morgan (you) and when you respond, she begins to raise her concerns about Dutch before she's interrupted by Uncle and a tip-off he's received about a potential wagon heist. After some debate, Bill Williamson and Charles Smith get involved too and even convince Uncle to participate. As you ride out all together, Uncle speaks more on the tip-off until you reach the spot.
Pull your bandana over your face so you don't get recognized and as the wagon passes, go to rob it. Upon reaching the wagon, you'll learn that it belongs to none other than Leviticus Cornwall. Still somewhat eager, you and Charles check the lockbox to see if the hit is even worth it. You find about a thousand dollars but before you can make your mind up, a second guard wagon shows up followed by a whole lot of guards on horses. You all flee on horse as you get chased by a couple dozen guards.
Continue following fleeing with your group until you reach a farm where you get off and choose to hide in the barn here. You send your horses away then rest at the barn until it's dark.
In the Thick of It
Just as you wake up and are about to leave, lights approach the house they are more of the guards looking for your group. They question the man in the house who says he heard noises from his barn not too long ago, then two guards are sent to check on it. The guard that enters the barn is close to missing your group but alas sees one of you and is shot promptly.
A firefight ensues from all directions, as you are forced to defend the barn. Eventually, the lantern that the dead guard was holding picks up more flame and slowly engulfs the barn. Right when part of the ceiling comes off, you all flee through an improvised hole in the wall, facing away from the house.
Run down the hill into the forest. Here you split up and go with Uncle. You hide behind some rocks as two guards pass through and stealth kill them. The other two did not result to such stealthy resorts so you'll have to run over there and help them out. Once you defeat the waves, you'll all agree to split up in order to throw off your trail when you head back to camp
