First High Stakes Treasure Map Location

The first Treasure Hunter can be found In West Elizabeth, above Riggs Station. The treasure hunter is mostly wandering around this patch, and you might hear his voice from a distance. Most players, including me, have spotted him at this Cliff.

As you find him, do not run towards him because then he might getaway. An ideal way, like I said In the first paragraph, would be to hogtie him and then loot him. In addition to that, always make sure you are searching for him between 10 to 12 AM; the odds are higher. Sometimes, the Treasure Hunter runs away, and If that happens, you will be left with two more attempts subsequently If you were still unable to get the map. The map will then be sold at Fence, consequently paying money to continue forward.

There is a little entry that leads from the road to the waterfall and cliff. Once you are there, you can stroll behind the waterfall, climb up the ledge, and see it below a rock In the corner. At first glance, It will look weird, but yeah, you can go past the waterfall, give it a try.

Here is the picture of that ledge and waterfall you will find south of Cumberland Falls.

Remember, there is no skipping on either treasure map. All of them are interconnected, and If you fail to find this one, there is no Treasure Map 3. For 100% completion, you must find all four of the treasure maps.

Treasure Map 3 does look like a mystery, but trust me, it is probably the easiest to find.

All you have to do is go to the Ambarino region, north of Grizzlies West, and at this particular point on Barrow Lagoon, you will find the Treasure Map 3. There is a log laid in the middle of a creek joining two points. The treasure map is right in the middle of the log.

The Final High Stake Treasure Map Location

Like I said in the first paragraph. The first three treasure maps do not get you something. In other words, they only connect one treasure map with others. The actual treasure map that will get you something is the one you have found at Barrow Lagoon. This is the final map that will lead you to a treacherous cliff, where three gold bars are waiting to be retrieved. Here is the treasure map you must have found In treasure hunt 3.

There are also some Instructions on this treasure map that will give you a little bit of a clue.

  1. Follow the path from North East
  2. Uphill from the fort
  3. Pass through the gap
  4. Between the two peaks and take the left path down

Keep these four instructions In mind, because you will need them later. To find this final treasure map, you will have to go to Bacchus Station, North of Fort Wallace.

If, by any means, you were unable to locate Fort Wallace and Baccus Station. Here is the wider picture of the entire point. The red square points to Baccus Station.

Now that you know where Bacchus Station is, it’s time that we find where these three gold bars are hidden. There is a huge treacherous path along this cliff on Bacchus Station. You will have to focus on going down and make way on the steep ledges. There is a clear path, so do not get confused in the wrong directions. At one point, you will find a small rock that would require you to crouch. Once you do that, Arthur himself will grab the 3x Gold Bar’s hidden inside the rocks.

Here is a YouTube Video from Slaytanic to help you sort it out.

High Stakes Treasure map 3 is presumably the hardest Treasure Hunt but remember it’s the most important one. Most players face the problem that the cliff is too steep, and with one wrong button, you are dead. The respawn is then frustrating, as you probably start all over again. I’d highly recommend using a keyboard instead of a controller whenever attempting this treasure hunt. Other than this, be patient because it takes two to three attempts. The gold you get is exquisite and Important for progression.

There are a lot of other ways to get free money In Red Dead Redemption 2. I find looting gang hideouts to be most entertaining.

We updated the guide in 2021 with more images to share a better perspective of the location.
