Treasure Maps highlight terrain features that hint to the location of undiscovered treasure. Explore the world to find landmarks that match the treasure map, and search the area for signs of a buried chest. One treasure leads to another on the Treasure Hunter Challenges.
The maps crudely depict settlements, forts, outposts and geographical features, sometimes indicating the location of a treasure, but in other cases being outright wrong and misleading, such as the first map. As a result, the player must search the general area. If found it is obvious that X does not always mark the spot.
Red Dead Redemption
The first map is obtained from a random event of a treasure hunter being attacked by criminals. Once the player saves the treasure hunter, or loots his corpse, the player obtains the first treasure map. Each subsequent map is found as a part of the previous maps treasure.
The first map is obtained from looting chests left behind after Random Encounters. There is no specific encounter that spawns the initial map, but it will show up very early in the game. Sometimes, the player can get the first treasure map again after they have gotten all the treasure, and if the player goes to where the first treasure is found, it will be like it was un-touched, but it can not be inspected.
As with the main storyline, a subsequent map will be found in each opened treasure chest.
For the locations of each treasure, see this video:note: The 5th treasure is located in Puerto Cuchillo, not Punta Orgullo.
