The new free roam event for the collector, Salvage is a lot of fun.  It involves looking for collectibles while killing waves of NPC bandits

Sounds great!

 

I like this role but I also hate it.

Bought map for the cards and they only show me 3 locations before I must buy a new map. So that can't be much value in total after buying all the maps...
Also bought a map for the eggs and suddenly my map was gone.

 

Would be nice with a location guide where to find all the cards, so I can make money for shovel and metal detector.

If I buy the equipment,  how many locations is it for buried tressures? And how is the extra perk working out?

Tbh i find this role kinda hard, just testet it for 3 hours and I can't say I had good luck with it. 
The eggs near the lake outside flatneck station was impossible to find even I searched for a long time.

So I shot the egg out of the sacred collection by accident. Can anyone confirm they respawn? I switch sessions twice with no luck

Same here. It was back today but several sessions wouldn't respawn the nest.

 

Shoot the outermost pixel of (just graze) the nest and the nest will disappear but the egg will drop to the ground.

I've had nests respawn the same day after I used a map, no idea if they respawn normally.

 

And yea, varmint rifle and shoot the edge of the nest. The eggs in the middle so shooting it slap bang in the middle is no bueno.

That metal detector was the best investment ever.

 

Completed my first set (arrow heads) and sold them for almost 300 dollars. 

 

According to the awards page, i've already found 244 items. 

 

I love this update.

Do you just randomly walk around with the metal director to try and find something or is there a range where it should be used ?

I just keep it equiped while on horse and ride around the map.

 

It helps a lot, if you know the map.

Yesterday, instead of trying to find the Gypsy, I decide to chase down some leads posted in this thread. There's definitely some randomness to the spawns if you're freeroaming them, since only about 50% paid off.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would have been happy with a 50% find rate. I was getting absolutely nothing. I was back and forth across lobbies. Rummaging in every building in every town. The only hits I was getting were the bad guy loots I mentioned. So I just gave up. Then one of my bounties took me back to a spot I had already checked on and my Red Dead Spidey Sense went off. Sure enough, all of a sudden, I've got a brush and a tarot card. I swept back through some of the place on the forum lists and there was a majority of the stuff everyone had been talking about all day. I went from low level two to almost 5 in an hour. It was crazy. Still think there's something wrong in the background with the spawn mech, but at least I got to participate for a while. I'll have to see how my Loot Tingle behaves today.

The weekly list - seems like raw luck if I'm going to come across the three items. I just got the metal detector and binoculars though, so hopefully they help. I could look up locations, but that seems a little - I don't know, I'm not judging anyone who does, but it'd kind of take the spirit out of it.

 

When they first mentioned weekly collections I thought it'd just be a map leading to them. Not a shopping list.

What's the secret to seeing nests? I've had a ton of spawn trouble with this role, so I don't know if I'm just missing them or if the don't exist for me. Does your Spidey Sense go off? Can you see the yellow smoke marker in Dead Eye? Do you have to hit a certain level?

Where did you find the sacred collection nest? I haven't been able to find any nests in the trees, but would love to find THIS one!

Has anyone found scotch whiskey or cognac?

 

Scotch is inside the Strange Man's house. (Bonus, there's a Heron egg outside)

 

Cognac - IIRC - is in (I don't know the right name for it) the yellow house near Van Horn that has the Frankenstein's monster type of creature in the second floor. Either there, or Braithewait Manor. I got it, just can't remember which place.

I think cognac might be on the dining room table in Braithewaite manor.  If not cognac, it's some kind of liquor bottle

Thats awesome, didnt know you could ride around same time using it, sounds like a lot of fun! Shovel plus a metal detector cost a bit but sounds like a must have :)

I got that from Reddit.  I guess her moving around is by Rockstar design...it's not a glitch.

It's not a glitch, it was implied she would move around.

 

Her not appearing on the map I believe is the glitch.

So for those asking about the Eagle Egg... I found mine south of Monto's Rest. From Strawberry take the road north east and head to the road that ends northeast of the L in West Elizabeth. The Egg will be in a tree in a nest (for me there was no nest, the egg was just floating). Shoot the egg/nest and it will roll down the hill. It may get put into a spot that has your character sliding down the small hill, but it is not hard to jump your way to success.

 

Hope this helps.

Went to that location 4 times today in different sessions, also 2 times yesterday at the dam where the eagle egg was.

at both locations no eagle egg for me, hope i have tomorrow more luck

Exactly how does the metal detector work? I am at a place where it should be some buried stuff. The detector is vibrating as hell, but cant see anything in eagle eye or the new binoculars.

 

Edit: Nvm. It could vibrate even more. My find wasnt what I was looking for though. :D
