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

Red Dead Redemption 2 has its fair share of collectibles, and one of the first you'll discover are the cigarette cards. These form the main set of collectibles in the game, as there's a whopping 144 of them to find in total! Red Dead Redemption 2 cigarette cards are small, and the open world setting is huge, so it would be a massive task for you to go out there and track them all down by yourself. That's where we come in to offer some help, so you don't have to spend the rest of your days searching every nook and cranny.

To get more specific about this collectible, there are 12 separate decks of cards with distinct themes available, and each is made up of 12 cards, which makes 144 cards in total. If you're wondering whether you should put in the time and effort to find them all, consider that locating them all will earn you a decent amount of cash, as well as putting you one trophy or achievement closer to having completely beaten the game.

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:
