Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare treasure location guide

While hordes of the dead may be roaming the West hungry for your flesh, that doesn't mean you can't take a little personal time to go treasure hunting. Finding treasure is just like it was in vanilla Red Dead Redemption (opens in new tab); you find your first map and then spend 30 minutes trying to decipher where the hell this place is. Good thing we did the heavy lifting and figured it out, to bring you the map location and a side by side shot of the treasure site and the treasure map itself.

To get started in your career as a treasure hunter, you'll need a map. To find the map in Undead Nightmare (opens in new tab), you will need to locate a fellow who has a camp set up in the wild. While this sounds a little confusing, it’s easy enough, but will take some random luck to come across it quickly. The camp appears all over the place and will even appear after you have found the map for the first time. Once you do reach his camp - which is easy to spot because he has a zombie woman tied to a stake that likes to writhe about - shoot the man to take him out and then open the chest that he has nearby. Once you do, you will receive some ammo and your very first treasure hunting map.

Treasure #1

Location: West of Tall Trees

This treasure spot is a little tricky to get to. Set your waypoint to the spot on the map - there is a small gorge there that divides the mountain - and then follow the red path. It will take you to a railway tunnel. Do not go into the tunnel - instead, go up the side of the tunnel and follow the hilltop along to the gorge. Once you reach it, head north along it to the dead end and the pile of rocks which indicates your treasure spot will be there.

Treasure #2

Location: Southwest of Coot’s Chapel

When you reach the location on the map, head up the slope onto the rocks. Follow the edge of the path around to the southeast and you will get a popup stating you entered Hennigan’s Stead. Take a few more steps along the path and then turn to the right and ta-da, there is your pile of rocks.

Treasure #3

Location: West of Scratching Post, South of Gaptooth Reach

Head to the spot marked on the map and you will come to a large rock formation that has two flat peaks on the top of it. Make your way up the ledges and when you finally reach the highest point, look between the two flat topped rocky columns to find the treasure sitting there.

Treasure #4

Location: South of Sepulcro

When you finally reach Mexico, you can start your venture after this treasure. Head to Las Hermanas and then make a turn towards the southeast. When you reach the spot on the map above, you will find three trees in a row. Walk between the second and third tree and look for the “Inspect” prompt to show up, indicating you have found the 4th treasure.

Treasure #5

Location: Between Agave Viejo and Casa Madrugada

The last treasure is not even close to being the most difficult treasure to find. Go figure. Head to the spot on the map, but to get there you will need to head at it from the side. Make your way up one of the slopes on either side - the east side being the easier of the two - that will take you to the ledge where the treasure is perched. Once you hike across the edge of the cliff wall for a little bit, you will find your pile of rocks and become a Legendary Treasure Hunter.
