Red Dead Redemption 2 Cigarette Cards Collectibles

Smoking, and other Hobbies Stranger Quest

At Flatneck Station in chapter 2, you’ll meet a Stranger called Phineas T. Ramsbottom, a card collector who offers to pay you handsomely for each complete set of cards you can return to him.

There are 144 individual Cigarette Cards for you to find throughout the world, although if you’re lucky you won’t have to scrounge them all.

If you have even been a fan of a collectible card game, then you know the feeling of unbridled excitement, elation, and inevitable disappointment that comes with opening a new booster pack. Well, now outlaw Arthur Morgan can experience that too every time he opens a new pack of smokes.

When opening a pack of Premium Cigarettes, you’ll get a random Cigarette Card from any of the available sets. You can get duplicates this way, by any spares you have can be offloaded to a fence. Still, if you intend on collecting every Cigarette Card, then you could do worse than save yourself some time by opening any Premium Cigarette packs you find.

For sending your first set off in the mail, you’ll get some Vintage Civil War Handcuffs, which are used to craft a Talisman.
