- Complete within 3 minutes 5 seconds
This mission will occur to you while traveling in Saint Denis after completing Fleeting Joy. You will mostly have been on your way to meet Sadie for Icarus and Friends.
You’ll find yourself being dragged by a kind samaritan through the streets. He’ll say you don’t look well, and will lead you to a doctor.
Follow him by pressing forward on the left stick. When you arrive, the man will even give you the $10 you need for treatment.
Head inside. A doctor is miraculously available immediately. After looking Arthur over for a few minutes, he determines that he has tuberculosis and suggests he moves somewhere dry and warm. This is terrible news.
[su_note]Note: Back then, tuberculosis was also widely known as “consumption” because of the way the infection would slowly break down and eat away at the body. A person infected with this disease will lose massive weight, cough up bloody phlegm, and experience other symptoms like heavy fatigue. It generally infected the lungs, first and foremost. Tuberculosis was the leading cause of death in the United States and Europe in the 1800’s.[/su_note]
The doctor hilariously starts smoking a pipe right next to Arthur, and sends him on his way after giving him a shot.
Walk away from the doctor’s office, and keep going. It doesn’t matter what direction. Arthur will remember a few things friends and lovers have said to him over the years as he ponders his death sentence.
When you’ve gone far enough, the mission will end.
Red Dead Redemption 2 A Fork in the Road Mission is completed.
