100% Without New Austin?

Recommended Posts

GreatScott04

I was disappointed that there's no way to take Arthur into New Austin, because it makes no sense that John would go there before RDR1, yet make out in that game that he's never been there before.

 

Would've made more sense to take Arthur there alone later on in the game (seeking a dry climate for his TB) before either Charles or Sadie turns up to fetch him back because the gang is falling to sh*t and Micah is influencing Dutch without Arthur around. With only a couple of characters ever having gone to NA, they would just never tell the rest of the gang that they'd been there (resolving any issues with John's "we never made it out this way" comment).

 

I really want to go for 100%, gaining that final percentage with John's final epilogue mission, but that would mean completing all the side missions and such with Arthur before he dies. Is that even possible? Or are there certain things you HAVE to do either in NA, or when playing as John?

Where does it actually say he’s never been there? You’d think with his ranch so close he would’ve gone there sometimes.

I actually did exactly that last night, I finished the final epilogue mission to get my 100% completion.

 

You definitely have to go to New Austin, there's no getting around it. You must clear 6 gang hideouts (1 of which is in New Austin), there's some dinosaur bones there, some plants found only there and you finish the Legendary Fish side mission there. 

 

There are also epilogue missions that take place in New Austin. 

 

There's over 20 missions in the epilogue with time to free roam in between so you can do what I did and go clear everything up before finishing, you just can't do it as Arthur.

He never says that he has personally never been there. He tells Bonnie that the gang never made it out there, which is true, but again doesn't specify that he never went there himself.

 

However, he does tell Marshal Johnson that he's never heard of Tumbleweed, and he needs a guide to show him the way to Fort Mercer, which makes no sense if he's been there in the RDR 2 Epilogue.

AFAIK yes

He may not have been to fort mercer or tumbleweed before RDR1, and that leaves it in the hands of the player to keep the story in line with Johns story. For the sake of the story, just stay away from fort mercer and tumbleweed, and the whole problem is solved.

Either you glitch your way to New Austin or you can't get 100%. Dinosaur Bones + 3 legendary fish are there. Maybe a gang as well (Del Lobos)

Unless you can find some way to encounter the Laramie gang and the skinner brothers Arthur can't do everything.  Those two gangs don't spawn at all in 1899
