All That Glitters is a Stranger Mission Strand (Side Questline with Treasure Hunt) in Red Dead Redemption 2. This Walkthrough shows how to complete the Treasure Hunt from the Jack-Hall-Gang.
Quest Giver: Máximo Cristóbal Valdespino
Region: South-West of Horseshoe Overlook Camp
Reward: 2 Gold Bars (each worth $ 500)
All That Glitters Starting Location
This Treasure Hunt is located quite close to the Gang’s first camp Horseshoe Overlook. It is upon a plateau overlooking the Dakota River.
Famous Explorer (or at least so he says) Máximo traveled to the United States to seek another fortune.
Máximo, however, is quite busy and has to leave the country tomorrow. Because he believes we are an adventurer like him and he doesn’t want his map to be unused, he offers us to buy it for $10. If you decline his offer he will bring it down to $5. Bargain!
In case you scared him away, robbed or killed him by accident, you can buy his map from any fence in the game.
The first shown location is also in the Horseshoe-Area, a bit to the north from where we picked up the quest. It is a mountain called Caliban’s Seat. Approach it from North to South and you will be able to ride to the top. When reaching the top, before going to the small camp at the very end, head down to the right a bit and continue the narrow way along the cliff-side. The next treasure-map is in a small gap in the wall.
The location of the second treasure is quite a bit up North; Cotorra Springs in the state Ambarino.
The final treasure of this hunt is east of the previous one, still in the state of Ambarino. To be precise, the Lake O’Creagh’s Run in the Grizzlies East.
The marking on the in-game map is actually a bit off. The location is not on the front-facing northern side, but on the other side of the island (south).
In this location, Arthur will find two Gold Bars, which can be sold for a total of $ 1.000. Quite a bit of cash in the early days!
