Van Horn to Blackwater in 17 minutes or less horseman challenge
By - cd826
Yes, but it’s risky. Yeah have to cross over the bridge by Owanija Dam and people will start shooting right away, but it can be done. Break off the main road and run through the open field as soon as you get the chance
If I complete it then do I just keep trying to avoid all the hell fire and get back to safety? Also what happens if I die before I get back? Will I spawn back in friendly territory
When the challenge pops go north-east. You can go down to the shore there and cross the river back to safety. If you get killed, yes, you respawn on the other side of the river.
There's also an alternative way to cross into Great Plains. You can jump the broken bridge. It's hard to explain where it is, better look it up. This way, you find yourself much closer to Blackwater. But you'll need a bigger horse to make the jump.
If my horse dies and I die before reviving it what happens to my horse?
It’s gone forever
Have plenty of health tonics for you and your horse ready to go
It's easier if you do it in Chapter 2 before "The First Shall Be Last" mission. Fewer bounty hunters and lawmen show up. If you do it after, it's nigh impossible without using the Broken Bridge rout.
Yup. You can even get the legend of the east outfit as arthur. Just did it yesterday.
For horseman 9. Just give the horse gold core food and yourself some minty big game before you enter the wanted areas.
Then dont stop until you see the message for it being done and then ride the hell outta there.
Update: all was going well and was not far from Blackwater. Had avoided 2 bounty hunter parties already. Looked like it was gonna be smooth sailing, until a fucking cougar scared my horse into bucking me off. Gotta love it
