GTA Treasure Hunt clue locations

Starting this hunt is pretty straightforward. Simply join a GTA Online session, and you should receive an email with a photo attachment, which shows you general locations for all 20 clues.

Each clue is a note, usually pinned to rocks, found under bridges, on tables, and more. These notes are hidden across San Andreas county, so we advise not hunting them in numerical order, but rather by working from one area to the next.

If you’re getting close to a clue, the game will inform you about this with the sound of a metal wind chime. Once you’ve collected one of these, three more clue locations will automatically be marked on your map.

While many of them are spread out across the map, quite a few are located within close proximity of each other so you can easily rotate towards another after you’ve collected one. Finding all the clues will bring you closer to getting the Double-Action Revolver.
