The Locals

Arthur Morgan (you) is about to enter the Saloon when a gun is pointed to the back of his head, he puts his hands up to surrender but it turns out it's just good ol' prankster, Dutch Van Der Linde . Dutch tells you that he's been looking for leads and heard that the Saloon is the best place to do so, but he's had no luck. So you enter and order a drink from the Bartender. You also buy him one and ask him about Angelo Bronte. The bartender tells you to let it go so you leave but as you do, the man stood next to you tells you that speaking to the kids in the alley may be of some help to you.

Exit the Saloon and go around the back to the area of interest. If you're unable to locate the kids, you can ask any of the people around the area and they'll point you in the direction, making it clearer on the map. Head towards there and when you find them, a cutscene will show you ask them about Bronte and they agree to help you for the extortionate fee of $5. When you pay them, the little one takes you on a short guide of Saint Denis that ends in front of a church, where his friend trailing behind cuts your satchel and hops on the back of a trolley.


The Chase

Chase the kid! He'll jump off the trolley and run through the street to hop onto a tram. Chase the tram until he gets off an runs in an alley. Chase him on foot until he passes through a gate and closes it behind him -don't waste time trying to open it, and instead climb it. Chase him onto the roof and back down until you reach a market. Here the point of interest will become an area and you'll have to find him.

Doing so will prompt him to throw a bunch of fruits on the floor where you will slip. Chase him through the fence he climbs over to reach an alley full of armed kids. The supposed leader of the kids will speak to you and tell you where to find Bronte, returning your satchel in the process.


Don't Wanna Talk About It

Return to Dutch to tell him about Angelo's location.
