Fight Tommy

Hit the attack button to break free yourself as soon as possible. To meet the gold requirements you will have to save Javier in 15 seconds and beat Tommy within 1 minute and 30 seconds. Tommy is a tough enemy so you have to attack him with a strategy. The controls you will have to remember are Square/X for dodging his attacks, press circle/B to attack and Triangle/Y to grapple. Don’t go for grapple too soon unless he is really week. It will not work. He can block your attack and counter-attack you. The fight begins outside, once you gain control wait for him to attack. Dodge away and block his punches. Once you are able to block then attack. You will need to wait for an opening to attack and bring him down fast.

Once you beat him a civilian will tell you to spare him. This ends the fight with Tommy. In the next cutscene you will see Dutch and a old friend Josiah Trelawny. He will inform you that O’Driscolls is behind Dutch and there are also some bounty hunters who hold Sean. Dutch will send Charles to gather more information. After cleaning yourself up meet Javier and the mission is completed. The next mission is Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego. To trigger this mission you will have to return to the camp and talk to Hosea.
