Cigarette cards are just one of the many collectables in Red Dead Redemption 2. There are 144 in total to collect so you'll have to be insanely dedicated to walk away with the entire set.
Do so though and you'll earn yourself a set of Vintage Civil War Handcuffs, which you can, in turn, use to craft yourself a lovely talisman.
In this guide, we'll list every single cigarette card in Red Dead Redemption 2 and provide tips on how to get them. In cases where we know where a particular card is hiding, we'll list that too.
What are Cigarette Cards in Red Dead Redemption 2?
Cigarette Cards are a collectible item in Red Dead Redemption 2 that feature images of notable American locations, characters, and wildlife. There are a whopping 144 of them to collect in total, and you can find them by both exploring the world and smoking premium cigarettes.
How do I find Cigarette Cards?
So there are two different ways to get your hands on Cigarette Cards in Red Dead Redemption 2. The easiest method is to buy as many Premium Cigarette packs you can find and open all of them. Each time you open a pack of Premium cigarettes (please note: opening a pack can only be done once per pack, and differs from simply smoking a premium cigarette), you'll receive a Cigarette Card at random.
This method can prove quite expensive and time-consuming though, as you'll have to buy an absolute ton of Premium Cigarette packs to unlock the entire set. Fortunately, there is another method. Scattered around the world are one of each of these cards and we've tracked down every single one of them below.
