Luther Covington, infamous steel baron and member of North America’s disreputable elite, fancies himself a bit of a philanthropist. His prized possession is the Covington Emerald, currently en route to the State Fair in Sacramento.
As such, the stone is being held under the watchful eye of the local lawmen, on a train preparing to leave the Saint Denis Victory Street station.
Here are some tips on how to procure this priceless heirloom, which is the first Jewel of the West Opportunity in the new Red Dead Online: Blood Money update.
⭐ Once you make your way to the train station, carefully consider your options. A forceful approach against the full strength of local law enforcement is certainly on the table but keeping a low profile can reveal valuable information too.
⭐ The cops stationed around the train are on high alert, so don’t do anything to arouse too much suspicion. Explore the area but stay cool. No hooting, no hollering, and keep your weapons holstered.
⭐ Loitering nearby and eavesdropping on conversations between local dockworkers and the law might clue you in to supplementary information, like the train’s intended route.
⭐ Should you be able to map out the train’s route, you can plan an attack somewhere along the way – giving you a strategic and positional advantage, not to mention the element of surprise. Blocking the track at an abandoned checkpoint could be your best option.
⭐ Visiting the Post Office and collecting the manifest from the Clerk will reveal the location of other valuables, including one stored in the area.
⭐ Canvasing the docks for a distraction of sorts might help draw some attention away from the train before it leaves the station.
⭐ The train is also transporting a couple of hogtied prisoners who may be willing to aid you in your efforts against the law, should you feel moved to free them from their constraints.
⭐ If you find yourself chasing the train down, take aim at the driver and commandeer the cab to bring things to a screeching halt.
⭐ You might not have much time before the train’s scheduled to pull out – consider whether you want to be on the train when it leaves or if you’re happy to catch up.
