The Treasure Hunt mission was added to the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto Online alongside The Doomsday Heist update and was intended to serve as a teaser for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. When you’re in an Online lobby you will receive an email from [email protected] (should all be familiar with that name by now).

Within this email, you’ll find your first clue in the form of a black-and-white photo. There are 20 Treasure Hunt locations in GTA Online, and you’ll receive them randomly.

How to Complete the Treasure Hunt

How to Complete the GTA Treasure Hunt and  Treasure Hunt Locations in GTA

This photo will be the first of 20 locations to which you must search. Each location will be marked on the map by a yellow question mark, like that in Red Dead Redemption 2, and once at the location, you will have to find the clue, which is a note pinned to an object. Each of the 20 Treasure Hunt locations for GTA Online is listed below.

Once you have found your first clue, you will be given an additional three clues on your map. There are three clues that you MUST find in order to complete this mission; A Corpse in the Tongva Hills, a bloody Shovel at Sandy Shores, and an empty gun case on Joad Lane in Grapeseed.

After you have found all three clues, a random location for a treasure chest will appear on the Online map, once you have located the treasure you’ll find a chest marked “Boles Overland Stagecoach Company”, opening it will reward the player with a Double-Action Revolver, and $5000 per clue you found.

Headshot Challenge

The Headshot Challenge

Lastly, you will be able to earn an additional $250,000 after unlocking the Double-Action Revolver. To do so you will need to accumulate 50 headshots in Online. However, you can either do this on PvP or PvE. Therefore, if you get a wanted level you can simply grind out kills against Cops to achieve 50 headshots quickly.

Once done you will receive the reward of $250,000 instantly!
