The Battle of Shady Belle is a mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. It is the final mission of Chapter 3.

Mission overview

John and Arthur clear out the last remaining Lemoyne Raiders from Shady Belle before the gang relocate their caravan there.


The morning after the assault on the Braithwaite Manor, Pinkerton agents Milton and Ross find the gang's camp at Clemens Point. They offer the gang a deal: that they will be spared and granted amnesty if they leave and allow Dutch to be captured. Every gang member refuses and subsequently warn Milton to leave the camp. Flustered, Milton says that he’ll return with fifty men and that the gang should evacuate the area.

Resultantly, the gang are forced to move again. Recalling Shady Belle, a manor house discovered earlier by Lenny, with a remote location due to it being situated deep within the forest, Dutch sends Arthur and John to investigate it and clear out any remaining Lemoyne Raiders. On the way, John speaks of his dismay over Dutch and Hosea's failed scam with the two families and expresses regret for not taking good enough care of Jack. When they get there, they notice that there are a few Lemoyne Raiders, so the pair kill them and dump their bodies in the swamp just outside. John goes back to the rest of the gang to show them the way, and the gang arrive shortly afterwards. While the others set up the camp, Arthur and Dutch will ride off to the nearby city, Saint Denis, to begin searching for Jack.
