The Red Dead Redemption 2 Gold Jointed Bracelet is one of the four valuables you need to find while playing the video game developed by Rockstar Studios; if you wish to craft all talismans for Arthur.
Basically, the Gold Jointed Bracelet in Red Dead Redemption II is the equivalent of the Silver Chain Bracelet; but while the latter pairs with the Silver Earring; the Gold Bracelet pairs with the Gold Earring.
In the game, you need to find at least one Gold Jointed Bracelet, as without it you won’t be able to unlock the Alligator Tooth Talisman.
Hopefully, our guide below will help you in your quest, by providing several methods to find the Gold Jointed Bracelet in RDR2.
Where to Find the Gold Jointed Bracelets:
Before moving forward, you have to be aware that the Gold Jointed Bracelet is a random item; which, as you probably know doesn’t have a fixed location where you can find it.
Even though, we suggest checking a specific chest. Assuming you follow our Red Dead Redemption 2 Hidden Chests and Lock-Boxes Locations Guide, then head to location 51 marked on our map.
If you didn’t get the chance to check our guide, here is the chest’s location on the in-game map. It’s marked by the Player’s location.
At this specific location, you should be able to spot an abandoned wagon. Right under the wagon is a chest you should check; as it is one of the locations we have found the Gold Jointed Bracelet. To find it faster check the picture below.
Before checking this chest you should save your game and if the item doesn’t drop, you should try reloading several times. While this may not be the most convenient method, it’s worth trying especially if you desperately need the Gold Bracelet.
On the other hand, if you only started the game, then you have plenty of time to find this valuable, using other methods.
For example, you might find one while completing the Home Robberies in Red Dead Redemption 2. Most of these robberies will reveal special houses waiting to be looted (Watson’s Cabin for example).
By strategically investigating each house, and looting them accordingly you’ll most likely find a Jointed Gold Bracelet. You can actually do this starting Chapter 2 of the video game.
Another location where you have better chances to find an RDR2 Jointed Gold Bracelet, it’s Tom’s body you can loot while playing Mrs. Sadie Adler, Widow story mission in Chapter 6.
Stagecoach Robberies and Train Robberies are obviously worth trying as there are multiple rich passengers carrying valuables.
One thing we must mention here is that if you wish to get a Gold Jointed Bracelet by robbing a train; you should focus on the one to Annesburg. Try to stop it inside the tunnel, in order to avoid getting a bounty.
You can also try your luck at the northwest of Lake Owanjila. Once you reach there, search for an Obelisk and start the Landmark of Riches treasure hunt. Head to the Hobbit’s house on the third location (as instructed by the quest) and climb up to the broken window in order to inspect and find your Gold Jointed Bracelet.
Once the quest is completed, talk to Hosea and Seamus. They’ll be located in the emerald ranch and will assign a house robbery mission to you. Head upstairs on the left of the bed and open the cabinets to find another Gold Jointed Bracelet.
Consequently, there’s a lady on the horse that pops up randomly throughout the map of Red Dead Redemption 2. She will be offering you a race with her. While the race could stretch as far as Caliga Hall, the victory rewards of the race do include a Gold Jointed Bracelet.
Moreover, there’s a decent chance of her dead body dropping a Gold Jointed Bracelet. Since this is generally a one-time opportunity, you can try your luck however you want. While beating her is generally extremely hard, it’s still quite rewarding.
Make sure you also loot the two safes on the train. Finally, head to the Handing Dog Ranch and clean it up in order to collect your last bracelet. Since you will be in a gunfight, it’s better to leverage the cover of the houses to your advantage.
After the grueling gunfight, head inside of the rightmost house by shooting its windows with a gun. Once inside, open the cabinet near the staircase in order to find the Gold Jointed Bracelet.
Can’t Find Gold Jointed Bracelets? Here’s What To Do:
Since Gold Jointed Bracelets are RNG dependent, so you’ll be mainly looking to try your luck at the mentioned locations. On the off-chance you lack some Gold Jointed Bracelets, it’s generally recommended that you try your hand at robbing people
This can be done on the train near Annesburg. Simply stay seated until the train reaches the
tunnel. Complete your deed in the dark and walk away without any consequences. However, it’s better to save the game if you’re worried about flunking the heist.
Furthermore, make sure to loot the back of every Stage Coach since they have a pretty
chance of dropping Gold Jointed Bracelets. You would need to shoot the lock since you’re essentially robbing the Coach, but a cowboy’s gotta do what needs to be done in order to survive.
How to Use the Gold Jointed Bracelet:
The Gold Jointed Bracelet in RDR2 is required for the Alligator Tooth Talisman. The same talisman, however, also requires the Vintage Civil War Handcuffs and the Legendary Alligator Tooth.
Now that you know how to find the bracelet, make sure you check our Vintage Civil War Handcuffs location guide, to find the second valuable; and our Legendary Alligator hunting guide, for the third item.
When you have all three components in your inventory, head to a Fence and craft the Alligator Tooth Talisman. To use the said talisman, all you have to do is to keep it in your satchel.
