Red Dead Redemption 2: Dreamcatcher guide - All dreamcatcher locations and reward

How to find every dreamcatcher in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Knocking around Red Dead Redemption 2’s map are a total of 20 dreamcatchers. You’ll find them in obscure places, dangling off trees and the like. Once you’ve caught them all, you can visit a secret location to collect a unique reward for your efforts.

Below we’ve put together a guide which explains where to find them all across the map and details how to collect the special reward for collecting every single one.

We’ve also embedded a video by Arekkz just below which is a must-watch as it shows you where to find them all in-game, and you can’t really get better than that.

How to claim Dreamcatcher reward

Once you’ve collected all 20 dreamcatchers, a reward becomes available inside the cave hidden behind the Elysian Pool waterfall in Roanoke Ridge. You’ll want to head inside and climb up the steep slope until you reach an alcove with cave paintings on your right. Examine the painting of the large buffalo to obtain the “Ancient Arrowhead”.

The Ancient Arrowhead doubles the amount of time your stamina lasts when drawing your bow - nice.
