So I just got a text on my phone saying you have been invited to a treasure hunt.

 

The text had a picture in it, so I went to the location. I searched the area until I heard some whind chime noises so I figured it was close by. Found a note on a tree with a message and now more question marks have appeared on the map and I have to go investigate and solve some clues!!

 

 

 

WTF??

I just got the golden gun ( Double-Action revolver) after doing the treasure hunt. 

 

After getting 50 headshots with the gun, you also get GTA$ and unlocks an exclusive variation of the revolver in RD2:)

Akula > AFK player > Akula :D

 

Edit - apparently NPCs count, and it's $250k. Woop.

I did mine in Solo Public.

If only they did more stuff like this. That was a fun half hour finding all the clues and the Revolver and then heading down to Vespucci Beach to clean up the headshots.

 

250k plus a variant of the weapon in RDR2, plus a Black R* tee unlock and all grades of my body armour have been filled to 10 for free!!

Cheers R*.

 

Edit.

 

Seems there's 20 unique locations and you get 3 (4 if you count the original note)

What'd you get?

 

I got:

Note - On a tree in Raton Canyon

Clue 1 - Bloodied shovel in a shack on the shore of Sandy Shores

Clue 2 - An empty gun box under a tree in Grapeseed

Clue 3 - A bloodied naked body in a cave halfway up one of the Tongva Hills

Treasure - Two dead prospecters and a chest in the forest on the Cassidy Creek Trail

Can confirm it can be done in IO.

Mine were the following:

- Look out deck in Sandy Shores (Chopper Tail vantage point).

- Blooded shovel in Sandy Shores.

- Empty revolver case next to tree in Grapeseed.

- Dead half naked man in small cave at Tongva Hills.

- Treasure located by the stream west of the Alamo Sea.

Wonder which ones I'll get for my other character :p

Walk around the area until you hear some wind chimes, that means you're close.

When you're next to the clue a notificaiton will pop up in the top left corner.

So how do you get invited tot he treasure hunt/get the text? Do you have to have pre ordered RDR2?

The first clue is always exactly at the the spot where the photo was taken. Various locations are possible here. (I had the totem pole and the abandoned grave on the mountain)

The following three clues are always in the same spot.

The chest can be located on various different spots. (for me one was on the north shore of the Alamo sea and one in Great Chaparel)

 

You can do the treasure hunt for both characters (you need to in order to unlock the gun for both), but you can only do the 50 headshot challenge once, so no extra $250k.

Nope, there's at least 20 unique locations for this treasure hunt

Got the treasure hunt earlier today, found the first clue but then I had to go to work. Does anyone know if I can pick up were I left earlier or do I have to start it all again?

I got

Note: On a Big Rock in the Senora Desert

Clue 1: Same

Clue 2: Same

Clue 3: Same

Treasure: Two dead prospectors and a chest behind a house in Vinewood Hills

 

I wonder if you can do the Treasure Hunt on 2 characters and get the bonus twice

Will it count if I do 50 headshots on npc's or does it have to be used on actual players?

Some tips:

 

The item is NOT exactly where the photo was taken. Just go to the giant yellow marker on your map and start listening for windchimes. Crank the volume.

 

If you've walked everywere and can't find it, try looking from 20-30ft up in the air. They tend to stand out. Look for a lone tree or other feature.

 

Some are obvious (dead body in a cave) and some not so much (dark wooden box at base of a tree).

 

50 headshots can be NPCs. I used Lost MC RIP :D

Stuck in headphones and followed the sound of windchimes, pretty easy.

Have you seen how you holster this thing? It's pretty neat!
