Nobody will tell you about their existence and nobody will mention them. This, however, doesn’t mean they don’t matter. In fact, they are very important and you should focus on finding them the moment you start Chapter 2 of the video game.
RDR2 features 20 Dreamcatchers you can collect while exploring the world, and our guide below reveals all of them. Additionally, we explain how to solve the puzzle triggered once you find all RDR2 Dreamcatchers, and how to collect the hidden reward.
Assuming you have reached Chapter 2 in the game, it’s time to find all Dreamcatchers. In order to help you identify them, here is a picture of a Dreamcatcher in Red Dead Redemption 2, so you can get a better idea on what you are looking for.

Dreamcatchers Puzzle Solution & Reward
After you collect all Dreamcatchers in Red Dead Redemption 2, your journal will automatically update and a drawing appears. It is just like the one below.
But, what’s up with that? Well, the image depicts a hidden location which is right behind the waterfall at Elysian Pond. Notice the X which is not connected to the others.
Let’s go claim this treasure, Arthur!
Ride to the location marked on our map with Reward. Make sure you grab your lantern from your horse, cowboy! You need a lot of light inside.
Now, head through the waterfall to discover a hidden cave. It’s the same cave where you have found Lock Box 32! But this time Arthur, you will have to reach the largest room. It’s the one in the middle.
Open your map and hug the left wall when you enter the cave. Stick to it until you are inside the middle chamber.
Now, on your right side, is an upper wall where you should see a cave painting. Notice the picture below, where we focus on it.
Climb the ledges until you get close to the cave painting, and inspect it. Curious isn’t it?
Well, the painting is nice but what’s more important is the item hidden in the small hole in the center.
Make sure you claim the Ancient Arrowhead because this is your reward for finding all Red Dead Redemption 2 Dreamcathers!
This special item will double your stamina meter while drawing your bow. Quite useful, isn’t it? Congrats cowboy! Keep this item in your inventory and exit the cave following the same route.
Congrats Arthur! You are one step closer to Total Completion in Red Dead Redemption 2!If you have questions about Dreamcatchers, feel free to post them below and don’t forget that you can always reach us on our social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
