This was pretty cool. Maybe RDR2 will release next Spring after all.  :lol:
 
As for locations, typical.
 
The picture was that of the lookout deck in the hills behind You Tool. The clues were a blooded shovel in Sandy Shores, an empty revolver case next to tree in Grapeseed, and a dead man in a cave in the Tongva Hills. The treasure was located east of You Tool over the highway and train tracks at the 'bend' in the road towards Humane Labs.

Best way to get 50 headshots I found was load up a contact mission with cops disabled (I used pier pressure) I just walked up and down the beach shooting NCP's easy 😊

I went to Vespucci and ran up and down the beachfront by the mask shop popping off NPCs.

Then the cops show up which is a few more headshots.

 

Get killed, lose the wanted level and run up and down Vespucci a bit more.

 

The challenge was to hold off the cops with headshots as long as possible. It's no challenge (or fun) doing it from a kuruma

Got the revolver, just working on the headshot challenge.

 

It's taking me a while. I'm a terrible shot. Also, has anyone else noticed a tendency for enemy NPCs to show up whenever you kill someone with this thing? I don't mean cops, I mean regular NPCs. Half the time, when I shoot someone, half a dozen or so NPCs in Emperors show up, dressed like rednecks, and try to kill me.

I just went up and down Vinewood Ave shooting people in the face. Took about 10 minutes.

Poor f*cks on Vespucci beach. First they had to deal with me smacking the sh*t outta them to level up strength, 2 protagonists, then again for leveling stealth and now they got their brains blown out for a challenge. All that while doing Chopper Tails, so you get a crowd and no cops to interfere.

No one noticed that all locations needed are marked on your map with a yellow questionmark as soon as you get your email? It even says Treasure clue x/3 in the list.........

Also, the holstering animation is pretty neat. Now all you need is an actual holster to put it in...

Every clue after the first was too easy to find IMO, but other than that this was rather well done. I'm kind of surprised that R* didn't make me pay for the revolver.

I give up! This first clue isn't anywhere in sight. I found the exact location in the picture and even took a picture to match (just to make sure) and nothing was even in the general area. I've been searching for 3 hours in this yellow area. Someone please help.
I see people saying listen for windchimes. Can you hear those windchimes over a waterfall or rapidly running water? I'm almost desperate to find this note.

We can't help if you don't even give us the clue you have.

If you can't find it, go to a different lobby, you will get a different text and picture clue that may be easier to find.

Pretty easy challenge, and nice 250K bonus with it.  I just played a Survival mission for the Headshots.  Took maybe 10 mins to complete.

Is the treasure hunt still in online? Asking for a friend who has been working away from home.

Still active: I started (and finished) it about 12 hours ago.

You need to be outdoors in a freeroam lobby for about 5 minutes before you get the email that kicks it off. You don't seem to receive that email if you're inside one of your properties, at least in my experience. You can be in passive mode too, that's fine.

I haven't seen anything from Rockstar regarding an end-date yet, so I think you can still do it.

Are there any prerequisites for it? I suggested a noob friend of mine do it earlier tonight for an easy quarter milly but he didn't get the email even after about 2 hours of play. I assumed it must have been a limited time thing whose deadline had passed...

Just switched to my second Char that I haven't used for months and got the message for the treasure hunt. So it's still active for me at least.

You know NPCs count btw? Start a fight with the police in a vehicle like the Kuruma and you'll get it in no time.

did this before work. Was easy.
Location to start it is a note. Listen for bells...

Headshots were prettt easy. Nice $250k bonus. Revolver is nice but nothing special. Was fun.
