Starting this hunt is pretty straightforward. Simply join a GTA Online session, and you should receive an email from [email protected] 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.

A handwritten clue note from the mission that reads TREASURE TORE OUR FAMILY APART IT AIN'T HERE NO MORE I MOVED IT YOU FELLOWS WILL NEVER FIND IT in all caps.

Now that you have found the 20 clues, you’ll need to find three objects to obtain your revolver. Players have to look for the box it is stored in, a shovel, and the corpse of the gun’s previous owner.

  • Tongva Hills Cave: A dead body in underwear and boots with a severe head injury.
  • Alamo Sea: A bloody shovel inside a wrecked house in Sandy Shores.
  • Grapeseed: An empty gun case near a tree on Joad Lane.

You can then collect the gold-plated Double-Action Revolver, and use this weapon in the challenge that requires you to land 50 headshots.

Successful completion of this will net you $250,000 in GTA which you can spend on the best things to buy in GTA Online, along with an exclusive variation of this weapon in Red Dead Redemption 2.
