Dreamcatchers are a kind of collectible in Red Dead Redemption 2. They’re Native American artefacts, consisting of a wooden hoop with a web of strings inside it. They’re used as protective charms, and you’ll find twenty of them scattered around the map in RDR 2. If you have trouble finding any of them, our Red Dead Redemption 2 dreamcatcher locations guide will help you by showing you the exact places, with maps and screenshots.
Where to find dreamcatchers in Red Dead Redemption 2?
You’ll find several of them hanging from a tree at each location. Approach and interact with any of them, and they’ll register in your completion list. The first one we found was near Valentine, in the Heartlands area. The Heartlands are northeast of Valentine, and the tree with the dreamcatchers is in the middle of a meadow near the letter N on the map.
Now, you’ll get nothing at all when you visit each of them individually. The game won’t even notify you you’ve visited a place that’s out of the ordinary. The only change you’ll see is if you open up the menu, and look under the progress section. Scroll down to the bottom of the collectibles part, and you’ll see the number of dreamcatchers has increased by one. The description on the top left says something about finding them all, noting their positions (they’re marked on the map once you collect them), then seeing what you think. Their locations on the map might form a shape that hints towards something bigger, but we’re mostly hoping for a new perk or at least some kind of reward.
We’re going to keep updating this guide with more dreamcatcher locations as we progress through the game. If you find any we’ve missed, drop us a line in the comment section, and we’ll add your finding to the guide as soon as we can.
If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
