All Amazing Inventions Cigarette Card locations in Red Dead Redemption 2

Where to find all Amazing Inventions cigarette cards for the Smoking and Other Hobbies mission.


The Amazing Inventions cigarette card set contains 12 cards, all of which can be found around the world in Red Dead Redemption 2. Collecting a complete set allows players to sell it to Phineas T. Ramsbottom for a reward, though the trouble is actually finding them.

Before being able to find all the Amazing Inventions cards, players must first talk with Phineas T. Ramsbottom at the Flatneck Station in New Hanover. Speaking with Phineas begins the mission, Smoking and Other Hobbies, which spawns a few of the cards around the map.
