How to get the Stone Hatchet in GTA Online

To get the Stone Hatchet in GTA Online, you'll need to find the secret location that it's been buried in through a strange treasure hunt around San Andreas. While Rockstar originally added this unique tomahawk GTA Online treasure hunt back in 2018 to cross-promote the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, it is still obtainable. Unlike a regular treasure hunt, you don't have any riddles to solve or clues to find - instead there are five bounty targets for you to capture or kill. Deal with them appropriately and the GTA Online stone hatchet location will be revealed as your reward.

As an additional bonus, if you beat the challenge that unlocks in the game when you find it you'll add GTA$250,000 to your online account and make this melee weapon available in Red Dead Redemption 2. If you're looking for a breakdown of how to get the stone hatchet in GTA Online, then you'll need to complete the treasure hunt by following the steps outlined in our guide below.
