Red Dead Redemption 2 Cigarette Card locations - where to find all 144 cards and complete your sets

null

Very early on in Red Dead Redemption 2, you'll come across your first cigarette card. These are the main collectible in the game, and there are a total of 144 to find. That's right - 144. It'll be almost impossible to find all of them yourself without a little help, so why not let us lend a hand? You can't spend your entire time hunting bears and starting firefights in towns, so give yourself a break and go hunting for some cigarette cards.

To break it down some more, you're specifically looking for 12 separate decks of cards, comprised of 12 cards each. That totals 144, and if you're considering leaving them because it's too much effort, when you find them all you'll also have earned a considerable sum of money for your efforts. Plus, you're one trophy or achievement closer to having beaten the game completely.

It’s also worth remembering you can always buy premium smokes from the local shop. That’ll get you a random card, but as your decks fill up, the chances of grabbing the one you need decreases. You can always sell duplicates to a Fence to make a bit of money back.

If you want to complete your collection, you'll need to speak to the Stranger named Phineas T. Ramsbottom sat at Flatneck Station from early Chapter 2 onwards, who will start you on the "Smoking and Other Hobbies" mission. Until you start this mission, one card from each deck won't appear, so it's best to get up and running as soon as possible. Once you get all 12 cards in a set, you can mail them to Phineas from any Post Office, and here’s what each completed deck will net you:
