Red Dead Online Gang Hideout Spawn Locations

Recommended Posts

One of the more challenging activities you can encounter in Red Dead Online while in free roam is a Gang Hideout waiting to be cleared. These camps of enemy bandits pop up occasionally in fixed locations and clearing them carries with it the chance to acquire some valuable items or treasure maps. If you intend to complete challenge awards, you'll inevitably be directed towards these hideouts sooner or later.

Gang hideouts can spawn in 24 locations. These spawn locations are fixed, but there is no guarantee that the camp will be there when you travel to the spawn point. Of the 24 locations, a few are just out in the open with no props in the game world indicating their presence unless they're spawned in.

Thanks to a Reddit user who goes by Rock1Jump, we have a map showing each Gang Hideout spawn location. The two locations that the author marked as "makeshift camp" are the ones that aren't obvious unless the hideout has actually spawned in.

When you clear gang hideouts, there is a chance that the gang leader will drop a treasure map that will lead to you valuable loot somewhere in the game world. The drop rate for the maps isn't known as of present, but it is definitely very low - some players report that after clearing 20 hideouts, they've encountered none, while others found just one after 12 cleared hideouts. At the same time, a few lucky players report drop rates of two out of two cleared hideouts or one out of four hideouts, but these seem like fortunate outliers - especially the former.

Treasure chests can only be looted by the player who has the treasure map. The physical chest itself is visible to all players in the session and can be opened if they find it, but there will only actually be any loot inside if you have the map pointing to it, otherwise, it will be empty.

Due to the sporadic drop rate, relying on treasure maps from hideouts isn't a good strategy for securing income. Instead, check out our money making guide for Red Dead Online.

I've done a couple alone, but I'm sure it's best to go with a couple people.  It'll go quicker and you'll have to worry less about people coming up and killing you.  Not sure if you can finish one someone else started, but either way, they can steal the completion from you.  Plus, if you're going around in search of one, having a larger group also helps against other players.

So about leaders dropping maps, can anyone confirm the veracity of that statement?
I've completed a total of 10 hideouts, cleared 6, spared 5  leaders and then killed him soon after the button prompt, and the last I just killed him, no maps for me.... the other 4 where buggyouts where I killed everyone but it never cleared and the leader was just another red blip, no "hat dude" icon.

EDIT: You missed an hideout near fort mercer, around this area: (or somewhere in that general direction)

Spoiler

I've only done 2 hideouts and only one of them gave me a map. From what I understand, I was lucky with the one I got, I hear the drop rate for those maps is atrociously low right now, so not many of the leaders will actually drop them
