An American Pastoral Scene is a mission in Red Dead Redemption 2.


To start this mission, Arthur will meet with Micah near his camp just outside Strawberry. He wants help to rob a banking coach that is heading into Strawberry.

The player will follow Micah on horseback until they make it to their destination - a ridge, overlooking where the coach should come through.

Arthur will run down with Micah and take out all of the guards and the driver, getting in the coach with Micah and driving it off after. The player will get a new weapon, the Lancaster Repeater.

Things seem to be going well, but once the duo get close to a river, enemies will appear to rob them.  The carriage will flip and throw both into the river.

After the robbers are taken out, Arthur will meet with Micah at the overturned bank coach and shoot the coach's lock to get the lockbox inside.
