Rustler High Season Dialogue
Buddy: Guy, what if I told you that you might take part in the big tournament?
Guy: You sound like a merchant. A bad one.
Buddy: Look, you’re the toughest motherfucker in the kingdom, so I know you would win with those pathetic knights.
Buddy: I’m working on a plan. But first, better meet with the boss, he was looking for you. Seemed urgent.
Buddy: Find me later by the bridge. And use a torch – it’s damn dark out here today.

Press Left Ctrl to change weapon mode (In this case stick into a torch)
Goes without saying really, hit that Ctrl button!
Ride to Herb
Herb can be found just south-east of the missions start point, just outside the Pimp-a-horse. Jump on your horse and head down!
Shoot three dummies with the crossbow(Hold RMB to aim and stand still to reload)
The dummies are located just above you. white scarecrows with targets painted on. Simply shoot all of the targets to progress.
Kill the knight.
The knight is located in the forest, follow the north-east road until you hit the junction and then continue on through the passing in the trees until you have sight of what appears to be a knight.(highlighted) you can either approach him to first talk to him. or outright shoot him.
Tip: I’d recommend using your crossbow on horseback when you are able to do so. when on foot, you must stand still in order to reload. On horseback you can flee or even slowly back away.
Kill the real knight
This knight has a shield. You can either kite him around (lead him chasing you) while on horseback, shooting away at his shield. Or you can lead him up to the campfire, and stand there shooting him from the other side of it. like pictured.
Take the cart.
Loot the bodies, take the quiver (arrows) from just north of the tent and head on up to retrieve the cart that has been left for you. Pressing F to get in
Collect the knights body (Just ride through it, don’t be shy).
As the objective suggests, Head back down south to the tent. and roll over the knights body. nothing more should be needed. your cart will automatically be loaded with his body on contact.
Take the body to the gravedigger
The gravedigger is located just south of the north-west cities walls. just turn off at the road immediately outside the southern castle gates and follow it along. Ride onto the orange circle to wrap the quest up.
