If you've been keeping tabs on the latest Frontier Pursuits update to the game, then you'll know that finding the location of Red Dead Online Madam Nazar is important for one of the new story strands. She's there to help you to get started on the Collector path for the Red Dead Online roles, by selling you the Collector's Bag for 15 Gold Bars – unless you've already proven your collecting skills by picking up all 54 of the GTA Online playing cards, in which case the fee is forgotten and you can claim this essential item for free. Tracking down the travelling saleswoman in Red Dead Online can be tough after your initial meeting as she randomly moves around the map on a daily basis, so here's everything you need to know about finding the current Red Dead Online Madam Nazar location and progressing on your Collector journey.
Red Dead Online Madam Nazar location
Red Dead Online Madam Nazar is marked on the world map as a round icon with a thick X inside it, and if you select the Collector path from the Red Dead Online entry menu to get started on this role then you should spawn in an area fairly close by. The marker stays on your map until you reach the Red Dead Online Madam Nazar location, where you can approach her caravan to initiate a cutscene and find out about becoming a Collector.
Finding Madam Nazar in the world becomes trickier after your initial meeting, as she moves around the map to a different location every day, and her marker disappears until you find her again. Helpfully, players have noticed that when they are Wanted and receive a bounty, all of the Red Dead Online Madam Nazar locations appear on the map due to a glitch. We have used this information to plot what should be every possible Madam Nazar spawn point on the map above, though that does still give you 11 different places to check.
It is possible to reveal her exact location on the map if you've previously purchased a Collector's Map from her and then activate it from your Satchel > Documents > Collector's Maps. However, be warned that if you have another Collector's Map currently active then doing this will deactivate and remove it so you'll lose any active collectible item markers you had.
For Monday September 16, the Red Dead Online Madam Nazar location (shown above) is on the path towards the northeast corner of Bluewater Marsh, near the Elimination Series marker and close to the border between Lemoyne and New Hanover. Interestingly, Madam Nazar was also here on Saturday September 14, suggesting her location is completely randomly chosen from the possible spawn points we highlighted earlier without consideration for her previous appearances. If you want that latest sightings then the outlaws over at r/RedDeadDailies will be posting regular updates on her whereabouts.
How to find hidden items for Madam Nazar
Once you have acquired the Collector's Bag from Madam Nazar and started that role, there are a number of ways to find hidden items to sell to her for a profit. You can stumble upon them while roaming around, and using your hunter vision will reveal a golden glow rising from collectibles when they're nearby. You'll also receive a Collector's Map from Madam Nazar, which you can access from your satchel, that reveals the search area for a few rare items to get you started. Further maps can be purchased from Madam Nazar, though for some types of collectibles you'll also need to invest in the Pennington Field Shovel and the Metal Detector before you can start finding them. As noted earlier, activating a Collector's Map will also reveal the Red Dead Online Madam Nazar location on the map, if you need to visit her to turn in items or purchase more supplies.
Once you start finding hidden items, you can track down the latest Red Dead Online Madam Nazar then approach her to turn your trinkets into profit. Accessing your Collector's Bag from the item wheel will reveal sets of items to collect, and if you can complete a section the resale value to Madam Nazar increases significantly, so it's worth taking your time and not rushing into quick sales. Keep an eye on your mail at Post Offices to receive notifications of weekly collections, which again will net you a tidy profit if you can complete them and return to Madam Nazar before the deadline. You can also send any complete collection sets you'd like to sell to Madam Nazar via a Post Office, meaning you don't need to find her in person to make the transaction. Happy hunting!
