Gold Medal Checklist:

- Get 15 headshots
- Complete the mission without taking any health items
Head over to Mr Geddes to begin this mission as John discusses with him the recent threat of the Laramies. That night, the Laramies attack the ranch once more, taking off with some cattle and killing one of the ranch hands. Quickly run over to the scene of commotion and brawl with the two Laramies. Like all brawls by now, focus on blocking your attacker’s blows and countering with a flurry of punches.
Following the fight, John takes up arms and rides with the other ranch hands to the Laramie estate. Be sure to keep your dual sidearms equipped at all times once you leave the horses in the marked area and head toward the ranch. You’ll have to score at least 15 headshots with your dual sidearms and there’s only just about enough Laramies to go around for you to achieve it. Although there’s no accuracy requirement for the Gold Medal, use Dead Eye to ensure that every one of your kills are a headshot.
Keep to cover during the shootout as you’ll be attacked from all sides and it can easily overwhelm you. Once you press forward and reach the second wave of Laramies, look to the barn to the left and take out the sniper on top as soon as possible. You can then turn your attentions to the last few Laramies to defeat around your location.
Once the shootout is over, head into the barn to seek out the last Laramie and you’ll be ambushed from behind. In the following brawl, be more defensive than the brawls at the start of the mission as you may find yourself with limited health. Once you counter his blows, only counter with a punch or two before resuming a defensive posture. In the cutscene that follows, simply pull the trigger to end the Laramie threat before riding back to the Pronghorn to complete the mission.
