Does anyone know if the longer you leave a treasure map open, the more it pays out like FR missions.

It isn't wrong, the stat (for the award) is specifically about collecting treasures from maps, not collecting maps. It marks off when you open the chest, you don't have to actually loot it (not that anyone wouldn't, just thought it was interesting).

 

To double check it before I replied to you I ranked up, got my map from the mailbox (had none on me prior) and my map/treasure count in the awards stats went up by one upon opening the treasure chest.

hmmmkaaaay, thanks for checkin. could have sworn I collected more than 10 maps though....had a good start, then nothing for weeks, felt like R* nerfed the treasure thing...but then it worked again, got maps from ambushes and I even found maps during stranger missions.

 

fun fact: I opened a chest and didn't take the treasure! not my fault though, gator was just too hungry and couldn't wait 10 seconds longer before eating me alive.

level 175. I played from the beginning, although only this one. Three and a half months. if in that time I had not reached that level I would have to be maimed. I keep eating naturally.

.65 gold and 124 dollars from my last map, looted it during a stranger mission, remember to loot every enemy corpse that you can, it's not just hideouts and ambushes that reward maps, and from what I've seen the leader has no more to do with you acquiring the map than any other enemy you loot.

Just a heads up, you can get duplicate Pamphlets from treasure boxes. Which is silly as the game actually isnt' designed to let you have duplicates (have 2 Special Miracle Tonics, inventory shows 2, but the Fence says I am carrying 1 of 1), but does anyway. Joy.

I've cleared countless hideouts and have yet to get one map. Unlucky I guess (though I have had lots of despawning bodies so that could be why).

Only place I ever got treasure maps besides ranking up was gang hideouts. I have never gotten one from an ambush, or a stranger mission.

I found 2 or 3 maps during "recovery" missions ([email protected] station). maybe you'll get lucky with these too

 

got 2 maps last session almost at the same time: did a hideout in hennigans', found a map on a dead guy, and 10 seconds later I ranked up tp 65 - so another in the post office.

loot map was located at hennigan's (north) - got me 0.48 in gold and 93 $ in cash. (nooooes, the streak...it broke...gold less than half a bar)

 

will open the rank up map later today.

Level 69. I'll look at total maps found but I can honestly say I'm just NOT getting any from the Gang Hideouts. I clear probably 3, 4 a day. Not a huge amount but I've only picked up one map in the last week plus. I check every box loot every body. Seems others  have much better luck. No clue how long it'll take to get to 100.

100 maps/treasures for the award? Don't hold your breath dude, at rank 105 I've still only gotten 55 or 56 maps, and that's counting the rank up maps.

 

Still holding out on buying any pamphlets in hopes I get one from a chest and I wanna make sure it's not a dupe lol, not that pamphlets are super necessary or anything so it's no big deal but curious how long it'll take. With my luck it'll be horse medicine or something.

On gang hideouts: I've found that a large percentage of the time, When I get a treasure map, it is from the last one that I loot away from the leader. On hideouts that don't have despawning problems, yes there are a few, I will leave a couple for after I kill the leader. I always kill the leader.

Doubt that's got anything to do with it as I almost always leave the leader for last, and by that I mean I literally loot everything before I kill and loot him (gotta get that sweet negative honor hit!)

I have been sitting on a Roanoke Ridge treasure map, and with my last location at my camp near Butcher's Creek. I guess I could go for it next time I log in. Even if it skews the 10.20 gold bars I have right now.

hit rank 70 last night and found 0.42 in gold & 120 in cash in the lootbox, at citadel rock!

haven't been lucky with actually looting maps lately, cleared 5 or 6 hideouts, survived a few ambushes, looted any corpse during stranger missions...no luck though.

Currently rank 243 and haven't gotten a map in over 130 ranks from hideouts and bandits. The only ones I get is from every 5 ranks. I don't even bother either hideouts and bandits cause its a complete waste of my time. I've done 150+ hours and not one map.

Haven’t found a map in weeks despite looting every corpse around me. Now I’ve found 3 maps in the last 3 days. It just defies logic, but I’ll keep on looting 🤷‍♂️

I don't know what happened but either the game was rigged or I had insane luck in the last few days.

 

Let me explain:

4 days ago I got a map from a hideout, later that day I got another map from an ambush (no other hideouts or other ambushes between)

The day after I did 2 hideouts. The second got me yet another map.

Next day I cleared 1 hideout, got a map from it.

Yesterday, the first hideout I cleared gave me another. After that my luck streak ended.

 

 

I quite couldn't believe my eyes, I only managed to get 2 maps before all of that. I have about 60 hideouts cleared overall.

As if that award isn't bad enough, you can reset that one as well 10 times.  I'll be dead before anyone gets 1000 treasure maps completed.

Yesterday I was on a roll, getting three treasure maps from Hideouts. I'm just trying to stack them until I hit rank 110. Almost to rank 109 at the moment.
