Havent found a map in ~3-4 days of playing (around 2 months for me)

 

The two last ones were from ranking up. And believe me, I am a looting machine, my usual posse evens laughs at me cause I'm always getting chased/killed while trying to loot all remaining corpses during stranger missions.

 

Im starting to get very skeptical about this idea and the way they implemented it. And the drop rate seems so low... At least I haven't been lucky in a loooooong while

So 39-8=31 from hideouts? 31÷235x100=13.19%

I forgot: of the 39 treasures, 19 go back to rank-up rewards, so no maps which have been actually found/looted at hideouts or during missions, just sayin...and down goes the drop-rate

cool! now imagine that corpse would have floated away in the water. would you have swum after it?

once a corpse floated away after it dropped into the river...and I followed that sh*t....oh I followed it for almost 5 minutes when it finally came to a still.....but it had only 7 cents on it ;D

What's there to be skeptical of? What's your drop rate %?

So 39 - 19 = 20 from non rank up. And you said 5 were from stranger missions and 2 were from  ambushes? So 13 for hideouts only. 

 

Hideouts: 13:235x100= 5.53%

 

Total event drop rate: 20:242x100= 8.26%

I guess I could go pages back to this and another thread to retrace and count my treasure map drops...I somewhat posted every time I found a map at some point.

drop rate sounds very low indeed. thx for the math!

Yeah it does seem low, and no problem...😉 I thought mine was low at 8.9%. Like I said earlier, I'd like to see the average from a larger data pool.

The fact that looting mechanics, imho, might be the worst I have seen for a long while. Bugging bodies, forced animation, low drop rates and even when you drop something the reward is pretty weak.

 

So yes. I was expecting better from R* and their "new" looting system for RDR2 

 

It is pretty difficult To calculate a precise droprate since you can also get a map on stranger missions corpses as far as I know

I agree, although I don't think skeptical would be the right word. Disappointed, angry, p*ssed would be more fitting. Yeah, unless you keep track of those and ambushes the hideout only wouldn't be accurate.

I'm on 104 hideouts cleared, 6 maps looted. Although 4 of those were collected in a single, very buggy, solo lobby.

Is there any correlation in maps being found when the leader has been spared vs shot in the face? 

 

I've cleared 13 hideouts and no maps. Level 41. Sometimes I spare the leader sometimes I kill him. 

looking at 240 hideouts cleared, I have ONLY ONCE found a map on the leader. @ solomon's folly (new austin)

picked it up after I SHOT HIM, right in the face!

 

rank'd up to 100 near valentine last night, reward treasure @ lake isabella ...well, COULD have been further away

also: after 25 hideouts or so of nothing I found a map at the hanging dog ranch. it was the 5th hideout in session, and I didn't even WANT to do it really...was on my way to flaco. well, I died 3x because I was messing around, lots of corpses despawned, felt really MEH -  and then the last of the 6 corpses available to loot had a map on it. (@blackbone forest)

 

that's 2 maps in satchel....I might start collecting again....maybe!

Nice. You think hideouts have changed? I haven't seen them as often as I used to.

They are about the same.

It's one of the daily challenges so; that might have something to do with it.

 

During that brief Gun Rush glitch. Every time, I spawned there was a hideout. Kamassa River.

 

Random Event:

Map was in Blue Marsh.

1.17 Gold  $100

LETDOWN! found a map during an ambush right near strawberry and one in the hideout @ cumberland falls. now with the increased rewards I read there's takes of 2.5 bars (which is a nice pair of rifleman-gloves for example)  - and then I roll the dice to not even get away with1 full bar - oh that's BULLCRAP! on the other hand, I got a "SPECIAL" pamphlet which costs at least 300 dollars I think...if only hat pamphlet was really useful to me...oh well

Now I thought maybe the bonus was just 48 hours or something...but it should still be in effect I suppose. maybe I get more lucky with the other map. intending to collect that treasure tonight.

Benedict point, calumet ravine, bard's crossing, east watsons and lake isabella were the most recent ones. But yeah the blue screens are killing me, luckily all that I've gotten have been inbetween actual gameplay moments, like when I'm just riding between locations.

Oddly enough, I haven't picked up any treasure maps by looting enemies since the update. I'd done quite a few hideouts, ambushes, and dynamic events since Tuesday as well.  I am close to rank 140 and earning a map however. Just waiting for the new batch of challenges to help push me to that rank and get the treasure map.
