This article is littered with spoilers, so I reckon you might ought'a mosey on down the road if you don't want to read any plot details.

In the opening cinematic, Nate Harlow returns to his family and explains to them their new riches. Giving his young son Red his old pistol, Red runs around back to practice. While there, the house is attacked by bandits and Red and his father must fight them off. Unfortunately, Nate and Red's mother, Falling Star, are killed.
An injured Red is able to grab his father's new revolver from the flames, which he uses to shoot the bandit leader, Daren. The bullet takes Daren's arm off and Red flees. However, the gun was hot and burned a scorpion symbol into Red's palm.
To complete the mission, the player must:
- Proceed to the training area.
- Shoot the target, dummy, then the pots and pans (or skip the training section).
- Fight off the bandits.
After the cut-scene is over, the player must follow the path around to the creek, receiving a movement tutorial along the way. Once there, in an optional training section, the player is told to shoot at the target, then at a dummy. After shooting each of the dummy's limbs, the player is told to fire at some glass bottles and pans. After the glass bottles and pans have been shot, a cut-scene plays in which Red gets berated by his mother for shooting her pots and pans. After Nate promises to buy new ones, gunshots are heard and a group of bandits are seen approaching the house.
The player is now told to make it back to the cabin. A couple of bandits have blocked the path up and must be shot. Once Red makes it back to his father, the two must fight off a larger number of bandits. After killing them all, another cut-scene plays in which Nate is killed. Daren approaches and mocks Red, who replies by shooting Daren's arm off and running away.
