Rockstar has brought back the gold medal rating system for Red Dead Redemption 2’s single player missions and quests. Upon completing a mission, players are given a rating based on whether or not certain objective requirements were met. Each mission will grant a bronze, silver, or gold medal, with the latter being the highest rank. Players can improve their score for missions they have already completed by repeating the missions and completing specific requirements. This guide will explain how to revisit and replay previous missions in Red Dead Redemption 2 to earn a higher rating.

If you want to go for gold, you can do so by replaying missions that you’ve previously completed, making sure to meet the necessary requirements to earn a higher rating. To replay a mission, simply open your menu and navigate to the Story section under Progress.

In this section of the menu, you can browse through the missions you have already completed, as well as view the highest rating you’ve achieved for each.
