This is going to be a walkthrough of one of the new missions in TSW with the new patch. It is called "Red Handed" and is slightly different to other missions as it will involve treating patients in the game!

The crazy thing is that you will need to have real world knowledge of medicines so first we have a guide that will help you make the right decisions in the game.

The medicines that you will need to know are:

Boric Acid

Boric acid is a mild anaesthetic that is commonly used to treat fungal and yeast infections. It can also be used to treat skin conditions like rashes and acne. The aqueous solution can also be used as eye drops.


This is a prescription medicine that is commonly used to treat malaria it can also be used to treat parasitic infections that occur in the liver. The medical term for this is extra intestinal amebiasis.


This is used to treat anxiety, muscle spasms, seizures and also to treat alcoholics that are withdrawing from alcohol.


This is commonly known as Prozac and is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders and panic attacks.


This drug is used to help people that suffer seizures due to epilepsy. The drug also treats people with restless leg syndrome.


This is used as a pain killer to treat moderate pain. This drug works by changing the way the body reacts to pain.


Everyone will know this one! It is of course used as a mild pain killer.


This is Ibuprofen and is used to treat moderate pain and reduce swelling.


This drug is used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and is only to be used by patients that have tired other cures and not been successful.


This is used to treat colitis which is an inflammation of the intestine due to a bacterial infection.

Ok, so now you know the drugs you will be using in the game we can get on with the mission guide.

Tier 1:

Make sure you follow these instructions carefully as if you get this wrong you will suffer a lock out for 5 minutes.

The goal is to read the ailments of each patient and then you will need to give the right medication.

You can have a go at this yourself by using the descriptions of the medicines and their effects above or if you want spoilers we will tell you the medicines to use below.

A good idea is to pick up all the meds and get them in your inventory at this point so you only have to select the right one.

Patient #1

Breathing Problems, Muscle Spasms.

Give Patient 1 Diazepam.

Patient #2

Headache, nausea, fever, vomiting. Blood test confirms presence of Plasmodium falciparum.

Give Patient 2 Chloroquine.

Patient #3

Fever, chills and severe shaking, confusion and dizziness, small red dots on the skin, rapid breathing and heartbeat.

Give Patient 3 Vancomycin.

Patient #4 is incurable and you will not be able to save them!

At this point it will mention a diary that you need to find.

Look on the table in the middle of the tent.

Tier 2: Read The Diary Of Dr. Varias

If you look at the left page it will mention chemistry.

The right page is actually the periodic table!

On a periodic table each element has a symbol and a number - you need to look up the symbols on a real periodic table and then get the number. You can use the number to work out the letter of the alphabet that this should be!

Very time consuming stuff!

If you want a spoiler we have done it for you below:

I Asked The Old Drinkers at the Tavern About My Father Some Recalled He Spent Nights With HisLocal Mistress There.

"Good with a pitchfork and that is not all"

This woman is long gone, but perhaps something remains.

Next up head to the tavern in town.

Head up the stairs in the tavern to the room at the end of the hall and look at the picture in the room that has a woman with a pitch fork.

Examine the picture.

The map will lead you to a church at co-ordinates: 877,1212

If you head to the north east side of the church you will find a dirt mound which you should examine and find a buried lap top.
