Red Dead Redemption II Walkthrough: Smoking and Other Hobbies Stranger Mission

Look, Arthur! Now that we have saved reverend Swanson, a new Red Dead Redemption 2 Stranger Mission became available in Flatneck Station. Just where you started Who is Not Without Sin. Let’s check this question mark cowboy!

When you approach the location, you will be greeted by a strange man who asks you if you smoke. But you don’t, right Arthur?

Doesn’t matter, really. What matters are the Cigarette Cards! Because you see, Arthur, The Cigarette Cards in Red Dead Redemption 2 count as collectibles. And they obviously count if you want to get Total Completion in RDR2.

Let’s proceed, shall we?


“Phineas T. Ramsbottom is a keen collector and trader of cigarette cards which are found inside Premium Cigarette packs and combine to create 12-card sets each with its own theme. He informed you that these cards are valuable to the right buyer and he is willing to pay well for each completed set mailed to him.”

Mission Requirements:


The Red Dead Redemption 2 Smoking and Other Hobbies is a Stranger Mission which revolves around collecting Cigarette Cards. As such, we will approach this quest in a special collectibles guide, where we can discuss all RDR2 Cigarette Cards locations.

The said section also includes the locations of Orchids, Dinosaur Bones, Rock Carvings, Hunting Requests, Dreamcatchers, Special Tonics, Chests, and even Unique Collectibles.

What is important for you to know at this point is that there are 144 Red Dead Redemption 2 Cigarette Cards you need to collect. Now, if you already started looking for them, you should also know that if you don’t trigger the Smoking and Other Hobbies Stranger Mission, all of your sets will miss one card.

Since there are 12 sets of 12 cards, it means that if you don’t talk to Phineas T. Ramsbottom you will miss 12 cards.

Therefore, make sure you find Phineas T. Ramsbottom first, and only after that start looking for the RDR2 Cigarette Cards.

Finally, you should know how to find the Cigarette Cards collectibles. You can buy them, collect them, or loot premium cigarette packs. Additionally, each card has a specific location where it can be found.

This is the goal of our Cigarette Cards collectables guide. To show you, cowboy, these 144 locations and to teach you how to get the cards.

Last but not least, duplicates also exist, and they can be sold at the fence. It’s a good way to make some extra cash.

Ready, Arthur? Let’s find all Red Dead Redemption 2 collectibles known as Cigarette Cards.
