Red Dead Redemption 2: Finding Gold Bars and Getting Rich

In Red Dead Redemption 2, gold bars are a valuable source of income, selling for $500 each to fences. There are over 30 gold bars scattered across the game's map, with some respawning and others not. Here are some guaranteed locations to find gold bars:

Limpany: A small wooden shack with "Sheriff" written over it, located on the southern side of Horseshoe Overlook and just north of Flatneck Station. Check the box inside the drawer of the desk to find a Special Horse Stimulant Pamphlet and a Gold Bar. Note: "You can glitch the system to get the bar repeatedly by saving, reloading, and going back to the same spot."

Lemoyne's Braithwaite Manor: Located south of Rhodes, go to the charred building with a corpse on the ground and find a lockbox in the corner of the room containing a gold bar.

Cotorra Springs: Climb the steep hill in the northern area of the map, cross the gapped ledge, and find a damaged upright train cabin. Jump inside to find two gold bars at the bottom.

Rhodes Train Station: Move southwest from the water tower and find two rocks among the trees. Examine the small stone on the floor and move it to find a gold bar under there.

Players can also obtain gold bars by solving treasure map puzzles. The Elemental Trail Treasure awards one gold bar, while the Jack Hall Gang Treasure provides two. The High Stakes, Poisonous Trail, and Landmarks of Riches Treasures grant three, four, and six gold bars respectively for solving their puzzles.

The Strange Statue Puzzle is a two-part challenge that rewards three gold bars. The first part involves finding a Strange Painting at Window Rock and interacting with it. The second part takes place in a cave northeast of Fort Wallace, where players must decode the correct statue combination of 2, 3, 5, and 7 to open a panel containing the gold bars.

With over 30 gold bars to discover across the vast map of Red Dead Redemption 2, players have ample opportunity to amass a fortune. By exploring guaranteed locations and solving treasure puzzles, gunslingers can line their pockets with valuable gold and enjoy the finer things the Wild West has to offer.
