Like most gangs, they can be seen taking part in activities such as stagecoach robberies and lynchings, and seem to have their headquarters in the Gaptooth Breach mine. Gang members have characteristics similar to those of Seth Briars (deranged, worn clothing, poor hygiene, etc.). Marston can unlock the Treasure Hunter Outfit to dress as a member of the gang, allowing him to enter their hideout without being attacked. Members of the Treasure Hunters gang appear in four Single Player Missions: Man is Born Unto Trouble, A Gentle Drive With Friends, Let the Dead Bury Their Dead, and briefly in At Home with Dutch.
The following is a list of known members of the Treasure Hunters gang:
- Clark Hatfield
- Digby Haskins
- Fletch Hillard
- Harlan Forbes
- Lester Dugan
- Mickey Brunson
- Roscoe Duffy
- Stanley Mund
- Wade Bassett
- Note: While the above mentioned Treasure Hunters have names, there are also two unnamed Treasure Hunters who both appear in multiplayer and singleplayer. The first one uses the same character model as Quick Tom Candle while the second uses the same model as Guy Percival.
In multiplayer, the "Miners" set of playable characters in the Outfitter are modeled after the Treasure Hunter Gang. The gang can also be seen as NPCs defending the Gaptooth Breach, Cueva Seca, and Scratching Post gang hideouts.
- Some of the Treasure Hunter's outfits bear a resemblance to the outfit Henry Moon wore while mining for gold in the 1978 film, "Goin' South".
- Unlike most other gangs, the Treasure Hunters gang seem to also partake in non-criminal activities. If the player enters Gaptooth Breach while wearing the Treasure Hunter Outfit, they can witness gang members going about their daily work prospecting and mining the rock for ores.
- The Treasure Hunters will appear in the Gaptooth Breach hideout before completion of the mission Man is Born Unto Trouble, and will not act aggressively towards Marston. However, the player needs to have completed most of the storyline missions up to this point before they will spawn.
- The Treasure Hunter's Gang is the only gang in New Austin, who have an unknown leader.
- Stanley Mund and Fletch Hillard are the only gang members in singleplayer that do not appear after the mission Man is Born Unto Trouble.
- Digby Haskins and Stanley Mund are the only obese gang members of The Treasure Hunters.
