Want to make money fast in Red Dead Redemption 2? The secret Le Tresor Des Morts treasure hunt is a great way to bag a few extra gold bars.

There is one big caveat though, which you need to know about before you start hunting for the relevant treasure maps. Only the most dedicated prospectors have access to it, as the secret treasure hunt is not available to everyone.

If you're struggling to complete - or even start - the mission then we're here to help. Here's how to find "Le Tresor Des Morts" - or the Treasure of the Dead - in RDR2.


How to unlock Le Tresor Des Morts in RDR2

Le Tresor Des Morts is an extra mission in Red Dead Redemption 2 that's only available to those who pre-ordered the Special or Ultimate Editions of the game, as well as those who pre-ordered on PC. If you didn't you're just not going to find this map, as unlike other treasure maps in the game it isn't sold by a fence later down the line.

The first thing you need to do to begin the Le Tresor Des Morts treasure hunt in Red Dead Redemption 2 is head to Limpany. This old, burned-down town is directly north of Flatneck Station, and you'll find the relevant treasure map there. Your base camp at Horseshoe Overlook is close by, so the quickest way to find it is to head back to camp and start from there.

There's a strongbox in the Sheriff's office that has a gold bar in it. You can't sell it off at any old corner store, so here's where you can sell gold bars in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Where to find the Le Tresor Des Morts map in RDR2

To grab the treasure map for Le Tresor Des Morts, head to the jailhouse in Limpany. It's easy to spot as it's the only building still standing in the settlement.

Inside you'll find two dead prisoners in jail cells, and the one lying on the cot has the rolled up treasure map beside him. If you don't see it, then that means you didn't pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 in time to get access to this exclusive treasure hunt.

Once you've got it, take the map and examine it. You'll see that it's prompting you to look underground for the next map. To do this, you need to head to Saint Denis docks and look for a big building called the Cornwall Freight Station.

You need to be near the docks, and head down the steps you can see to the left of this screenshot below. Hug the wall at the bottom, keeping it to your right, and keep walking until you drop into the water.

The water is only at waist height, so follow the edge of the docks to a steel gate that opens to an underground passage (that connects the docks to the Cornwall Freight Station). It's here that you'll find the map behind a pocket of dirt in the wall, next to the only crate in the corridor. You should also see an X carved into the beam here so it's easier to find that you might think.

This next clue is a rhyme rather than a map, and it reads:

Where the floods rise up,
But the dead stay dry,
And the colored light falls,
When the sun's in the sky.
There to your left you'll find our wealth,
It's no good to us without our health.

There's also a small sketch on the back of the note.

The dead stay dry in the cemetery, and the coloured light it refers to is a stained glass window.

Your final destination for Le Tresor Des Morts is not far away - it's a short walk to the cemetery in Saint Denis.

Turn left/west at the dome in the centre, and look for the big building with the stained glass window. Inside you'll find a hole in a wall. It's just to the west of the dome. Inside you'll find six - six! - gold bars. You can sell all of these to the local fence for $500 apiece. Holy moly.

If you want to fill your boots with more gold, you can track down the Poisonous Trail Treasure map, the Jack Hall Gang treasure map, and solve the Strange Statues puzzle to grab loads more bullion.
