Highly Illegal and Highly Moral Mission Start Location

You will find Marshal Davies waiting for you north of Van Horn.

After you’ve completed the mission Where Your Morals Lead you mission for Marshal Davies, he will mention that you got the wrong man. Davies will then move to at house located directly north of the Van Horn Trading Post. At this location Marshal Davies will give you the next mission called Highly Illegal and Highly Moral. In this mission you are tasked with finding Alfredo Montez once again. Here is the official mission description:

Marshal Davies asked you to meet him near Van Horn. He is on the trail of Alfredo Montez and he wants to finish things.

This mission for MD has a player requirement of 2 – 4. Here are the individual mission rating list:

  • Complete Mission in under 8 minutes and 30 seconds.
  • Enemies killed.
  • Enemies stealth killed.
  • Enemies taken out with headshots.
  • Lose No Lives.
  • Avoid taking damage.

Go to Van Horn or the Camp

Go to Van Horn or the Camp

When you start the mission you can go to either Van Horn or the camp.

When you start the mission you are posed with a choice, visit two locations- Van Horn or the camp. To complete this mission you will need to go to both locations but at the start you can choose to go to either one to look for the Lieutenant. Van Horn is located to the south and the camp is located to the northwest of Marshal Davies location. During my playthrough we had a person go to the camp while others went to Van Horn. This seemed to work fairly well (I will cover the town below and update with camp later).

Van Horn

Van Horn

When you go to Van Horn you will see a number of enemies of the gang.

Upon reaching Van Horn you will get a new objective to take out Montez’s Lieutenant. How you approach this objective is largely up to you. If you engage with the enemies you see in Van Horn, you will start a large firefight with a number of enemies. If you stealth, you can follow Montez’s Lieutenant and avoid the gunfight instead. Regardless the goal of this scenario is to get to Montez’s Lieutenant and take him out. When you do take him out you will get a new objective to visit the Camp (I will update this soon).


Will update soon.

Catch Montez

Once you’ve taken out Montez’s Lieutenant and cleared the camp, you will be told to return to the Marshal. Upon doing this, the Marshal will ride out with you to take out Montez. Montez and his gang are riding out in a convoy and you need to catch him out before he escapes. When you take out the caravan, Montez will run away. Lasso him and bring him back to the drop off.
