The dream catchers in Red Dead Redemption 2 are among the many collectibles that you can chase after in the wide game world. There are a total of 20 of them that have been scattered all over the wilderness.
The RDR2 dream catchers always hang on trees, but are not that easy to spot. However, if you find a dream catcher and stand near it, you can examine it more closely. If you do this for the first time, you will automatically start the mission to track down all 20 pieces. If you succeed, you will receive a profitable reward: an ancient arrowhead. The same grants you a great perk that doubles your stamina when using the bow.
To help you with your search, we will tell you on this page where all dreamcatchers are hidden in the huge game world. We have marked the 20 Indian cult objects for you on a map and also explain each location in detail. Of course, at the end you will also find out where to find the hidden reward.

This is what the sought-after dream catchers look like in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Basically, the dream catchers hang on the lower branches of larger trees. Often they are dead, dead or withered trees, rarely also living ones – whether this is a bad omen is an open question, as a hint when searching, this is at least a welcome advantage.
Although the dreamcatchers are about the size of Arthur’s head, they are often only noticeable when you explicitly look for them. This is primarily due to the fact that they hang over the normal field of vision and the often filigree works in the shadow of the branches are not particularly easy to see. In addition, the affected tree is often surrounded by other trees.

Red Dead 2 Dreamcatcher: Alle Locations im Detail
The map inserted above is primarily intended to serve as a rough guide so that you can take the right direction in your search. However, since the huge game world shrinks so much when it is shown on an overall map, the exact locations can no longer be identified. In other words: You could stand on one of the points marked above and then you would have a huge area in the game that you would have to search.
For this reason there is a detailed description of all 20 locations at this point. Below you will find all information about the dream catchers on the western side of the map. The next page then continues with the eastern side of the map and the resolution of the location of your reward.
- Dreamcatcher 1
You can find this dreamcatcher in the southeast part of “Grizzlies West”. It is best to follow the path that first leads east from Cattail Pond. After a short stretch – before the path turns north – an even smaller path that comes from the south crosses your path. Exactly at this point you ride straight north up the relatively steep terrain. You don’t have to go all the way up to the top of the mountain, only until you reach the level with the last trees. Exactly there you will find, as one of the last trees, a tall dead fir, on the lowest row of branches hanging the dreamcatchers.
- Dream catcher 2
This dream catcher is in the middle of the nirvana of the Grizzlies West. It is best to follow the trail that winds east from Cattail Pond or Barrow Lagoon. The path later runs parallel to the railway line near the Dakota River and continues to climb. Look here to your left for a dead tree that stands near the path in the steep mountainside. The dream catcher, however, is not on the dead tree, but on a still living fir tree a few steps north of it.
- Dream catcher 3
This dream catcher is located in the north of Ambarino. It is best to follow the Baccchus Staton railroad tracks over the Dakota River and further and further west to the point where the track crosses the narrow path that comes from the north. Stand on the path facing north and then look 45 degrees to the right. You will see some birch trees on a rocky hill, in the middle of which a much larger pine tree stands out. You can find the dream catcher by the pine tree.
- Dreamcatcher 4 You can find this dreamcatcher southwest of Valentine (below the “E” of the “Valentine” lettering on the map. Just follow the wide path that leads from the southwest corner of the city to the west, and then turn right at the second small path Head north / north-west. After just a few steps you should see a waist-high tree stump on the left, standing in front of a large dead deciduous tree.
- Dreamcatcher 5
You can find this dreamcatcher west of Caliban’s Seat, which is a good bit in a south-westerly direction away from Valentine. There just follow the path that runs parallel to the bank of the Dakota River in a westerly direction. If you are already quite close to the steep rock face and the path makes a small bend to the left to lead past the rock face, you should see a small cluster of trees on your right. In the first one, which is closest to the path, the dream catcher hangs in the bottom row of branches.
- Dreamcatcher 6 You can find this dreamcatcher near the Dakota River and west of Flatneck Station, which in turn is in the southwest corner of New Hanover. Just follow the path that leads west from Flatneck Station and then turn right towards the northeast when you reach the river. Follow the course of the river until you see a dead tree on a small slope near the river to your right. The dream catcher hangs on it.
- Dreamcatcher 7
You can find this dreamcatcher along the railway line that runs east from the town of Valentine. At about the height of the “K” of the “Citadel Rock” lettering on the map and where a narrow path runs parallel to the rails, there are two lonely tall trees. In the more northerly of it hang your dream catchers.
- Dreamcatcher 8 You can find this dreamcatcher along the railway line that runs south from the town of Valentine. At about the level of the “E” of the “New Hanover” lettering on the map, a path crosses the rails. If you look to the southwest at this point between the dead tree and the large gray boulder, you should notice the large pine tree in the background, which is larger than all other trees. Right next to it, a smaller version thrives with your dream catchers in the bottom row of branches.
- Dreamcatcher 9
For this dreamcatcher it is best to orientate yourself on the “N” of the “The Heartlands” lettering on the map (below New Hanover), because right there you will only find a grass steppe with small bushes and a single withered tree. The latter houses your dream catchers.
- Dream catcher 10 This dream catcher is located in the northeast corner of Ambarino. So close to the border there is only one path that leads through the mountainous terrain from east to west and also passes a lonely hut called “The Loft”. To the southwest of the hut, near the path, are the remains of a dead tree (the treetop is already gone, only the beginnings of three large branches can be seen). The dream catcher hangs on this.
- Dream Catcher 11 Northwest of Annesburg and southwest of Deer Cottage, the river makes a sharp 180 degree bend. Two paths lead there through the river, of which you follow the northern one to the eastern bank. After a few steps you turn north and look for a tall tree that has almost no branches and the dreamcatchers are hanging (about the height of the second “O” of “Roanoke Ridge”). Unfortunately there are a lot of trees here, which doesn’t make the search any easier.
- Dream catcher 12 You can find this dream catcher west of the city of Annesburg. Ride to the point where the three broad paths meet at the “E” of the Annesburg lettering on the map. There are posts with directional signs on site. If you look south here, you will see a large dead pine tree on the left in front of you, on which the dreamcatchers are hanging.
- Dream catcher 13 You can find this dream catcher southwest of the city of Annesburg. It is best to follow the wide path that runs south-west on the map below the Annesburg lettering until you have passed the rising 180-degree curve (on the map below the “U” of the Annesburg lettering). On your left you should be able to see a dead tree without a crown on the southern hill, on which the dreamcatchers are hanging.
- Dreamcatcher 14 You can find this dreamcatcher on the summit of the mountain that towers southwest of the city of Annesburg. It is best to follow the path that leads south over the mountain on the map below the “E” of the Annesburg logo. At the highest point of the wide mountain there is a larger boulder on the left side of the path. If you run towards the big tree in a south-easterly direction, you have your dream catcher.
- Dreamcatcher 15 You can find this dreamcatcher south of the lake “Elysian Pool”, which is southwest of Annesburg and northwest of the Van Horn trading post – on the map just above the “E” and “R” of “New Hanover”. Look south of the lake and to the right of the “E” for an abandoned campsite with a picnic blanket, parasol and so on. Directly behind the camp, in a westerly / northwestern direction, there is a large pine tree on which the dreamcatchers hang.
- Dreamcatcher 16 You can find this dreamcatcher northeast of the Emerald Station and Emerald Ranch. Just use the “O” of the “New Hanover” lettering on the map for orientation. In the middle of the “O” you will find the dream catcher. On site the whole thing turns out to be a tree-lined mountain slope. Finding the right tree is not that easy. It is best to look out for a gray ledge on the slope, directly north of it the pine tree you are looking for grows with the dream catchers.
- Dreamcatcher 17 You can find this dreamcatcher northwest of the Emerald Ranch and south of the Heartland Overflow. Best based on the “A” and “N” of the “New Hanover” lettering on the map. On site, the Heartland Overflow turns out to be swamp water, on the southern bank of which a free-standing tree grows that is significantly larger than all the surrounding ones. A smaller, withered specimen grows right next to the huge tree, where you can find your dream catchers.
- Dreamcatcher 18 You can find this dreamcatcher near the northern border of Lemoyne. A path runs along the border line that also guides you past the Aberdun Pig Farm. Follow it to the northwest until the path forks just before the border line. If you stand at the fork in the road, turn to the southwest. You should see a gently sloping grass hill in front of you, on which hardly any trees grow. A larger tree stands out, however, and this is exactly where you will find the dream catchers.
- Dreamcatcher 19 You can find this dreamcatcher in the northern part of Lemoyne. Just follow the inconspicuous beaten path that runs between Abdun Pig Farm and Lonnie’s Shack. If you are on the way above the “L” of Lonnies’s Shack, look to the north / northwest. You should be able to spot a large dead pine tree where you can find the dream catchers.
- Dreamcatcher 20 You can find this dreamcatcher on the border between New Hanover and the more southern Lemoyne, near the bank of the Kamassa River. If you come from the north, the path forks just before the border line in the west and south-west direction. A handful of trees stand exactly between the two paths, the rearmost (westernmost) of which has a large treetop. You will also find the dream catchers in it.
If you have collected all 20 dream catchers, you can pick up the reward. You can find out where you can find it in the next point.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Dream Catcher Reward – Where you can find the Ancient Arrowhead
As soon as you have collected all 20 dream catchers, Arthur opens his book in which he marked all the locations and linked them to a … buffalo? … pig? … whatever. However, he left out a cross on his head for his funny animal drawing. This is exactly where your reward is hidden. If you compare the map with the doodles by Arthur, the mysterious place turns out to be the lake “Elysian Pool” in the east of the maps (southwest of Annesburg).
The big waterfall on the north shore of the lake will surely catch your eye on site. Behind it is – surprise! Surprise! – a dark height.
It is not the treasure in Silbersee, even if it looks like it.
Inside you jump up on the stone wall in front of you and then follow the long corridor. Keep right at the first fork in the road and a little later you will come to a large, well-lit chamber.
If you climb up the stones in the back of the chamber on the left, you will come back outside at the hole through which the light falls. But first you should collect your reward. To do this, you have to climb up over the first stones on the left and then to the right onto the small ledge. There you will discover old Indian wall paintings of buffalos. If you inspect the eye of the largest buffalo drawing a little more closely, you will notice that it is actually a small bulge in the rock in which your reward is located: the ancient arrowhead. Grab it and you’re done.
The ancient arrowhead literally caught the eye.
