Nigel West Dickens has heard reports and rumors that the undead plague is not as pronounced in Mexico and suggests Marston go there to see if he can discover if those rumors are true and to see if he can find out how they're handling the plague, and maybe even discover the cause along the way.
Dickens has also heard rumor the American Army has a train at Benedict Point that is bound for Mexico and it is just waiting for all the soldiers to gather. He tells Marston that if John could disguise himself as a soldier, he might be able to get aboard the train. Dickens also gives Marston the scoop on a set of Army deserters encamped at The Scratching Post that might lend him a uniform if he were to help them in some way.
Before this mission becomes available, the player must complete:
- † = Note: It may take several game days after completing "A Cure for Most of What Ails You" before the icon for this mission appears on the world map.
To complete this mission, the player must:
- Speak with Nigel West Dickens at Solomon's Folly.
- Travel to The Scratching Post and either help the soldiers or steal the uniform.
- Don the U.S. Army Uniform.
- Ride to Benedict Point and help the soldiers there.
- Board the train to Mexico and talk to the Unidentified American Army Captain.
- Fight off the Undead that attack the train.
- Help remove the barricade blocking the tracks.
- Re-board the train and ride it into Mexico.
After speaking with West Dickens, ride to The Scratching Post and help the deserting army soldiers fight off an undead horde. After which, they will allow the player to take the U.S. Army Uniform (alternatively, it may be stolen without helping the soldiers).
Don the uniform and ride to Benedict Point and help the soldiers there defend the train. When the train finally pulls out, the player will be tasked to defend it from pursuing undead. The player will be placed on a flatbed car and must survive until the train reaches Frontera Bridge.
The train will stop at the bridge due to debris blocking the tracks. The player will be ordered to help remove the obstruction and then subsequently fight off more undead before re-boarding the train. The Captain and the rest of the soldiers will flee, so the player is on his own here.
Once back aboard the train, release the brakes and ride it into Mexico.
The mission will fail if the player:
- Kills or assaults any army soldier.
- Abandons the deserters' camp after helping them but before acquiring the U.S. Army Uniform.
- Abandons the train before it enters Nuevo Paraiso.
Mission Complete Unlockables
- U.S. Army Uniform
- Passage into Nuevo Paraiso, Mexico.
- The player can acquire the US Army Uniform for John in this mission. This makes said outfit the first and only one that was previously only available for Jack but now can be used for John.
- The track "Dead Sled" by the Kreeps is heard while riding the train.
- The title of this mission is a reference to America's growing imperial power in other nations after the Spanish American War.
- If the player is fast enough to kill the Undead in the front of the train, then the latter two soldiers along with the Captain will not flee. Instead they will keep in place where they are.
- This is the best mission to unlock some challenges, as Retchers are very common.
- A small canine-like animal can be seen on a spit at the deserter's camp.
