If there's one thing that unites video game protagonists from all historical eras, it's an insatiable lust for gold. Unearthing buried treasure is a surefire way to line your pockets with copious cash, and avaricious Treasure Hunters seeking to complete the Treasure Hunter Challenge would be wise to check out the our guide, after the break.
Hidden Treasure 1: Rhodes' Gold
Your first treasure map should come as the result of a random encounter, in which you save a stranger form a group of bandits attacking his wagon. The subsequent maps for the treasure hunter challenge are located inside each successive treasure chest.
Rhodes' Gold is located at Hanging Rock, north of Armadillo in Cholla Springs. The chest can be found at base of the largest boulder, under a pile of rocks in a narrow area, which can be reached by exploring the north side of Hanging Rock and following the narrow path such exploration reveals.
Hidden Treasure 2: Jackson's Gold
Located just east of Rio Bravo near the Rio Del Lobo, at a location called "Del Lobo Rock." Find the gap in the rocks at the top of the cliff indicated on the treasure map, and save your game (in case you fall down to the riverbed). Move through the gap and head to the right, then switch back to the left and hug the cliff face until you can drop down into the shadow of the bulbous outcropping. Consult the map for a depiction of this route. The treasure can be found on small ledge.
Hidden Treasure 3: Calhoun's Gold
Located int the basement of the old mansion in Tumbleweed. Enter using the back cellar entrance on the west side, and walk straight until you hit the basement wall. The treasure can be found below a mounted bull skull on the wall
Hidden Treasure 4: Tubman's Gold
Travel towards the San Luis River, starting from the Tree of Skulls. The area is just north of Chuparosa. Proceed until you reach the second stone wall; the treasure is on the river side of it.

Hidden Treasure 6: Douglass' Gold
Located at the Ojo Del Diablo, South of Chuparosa. The treasure is on the west side of the arch.
Hidden Treasure 7: Garrison's Gold
