Colm can wait. Best to get some of them outta there. And much less fun to rob him and his score if he never finds out about it.

–Dutch van der Linde

Old Friends is a mission in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Mission overview

Looking for information on the O'Driscolls' planned train job, Dutch leads the gang into an attack on their camp.


Micah Bell and Bill Williamson have a small fight, before being stopped by Dutch van der Linde. Dutch, Arthur Morgan, Lenny Summers, Javier Escuella, Bill, and Micah ride to the O'Driscoll Boys' camp to steal their plans to rob a train.
