Among the huge variety of collectibles available to find in Red Dead Redemption 2 are Dinosaur Bones. Tracking them all down takes a fair amount of due diligence, but as luck would have it, we happen to know all 30 Dinosaur Bone locations. Keep reading to learn where to find all of these ancient relics and how to complete the “A Test of Faith” side quest.
Players will first get the chance to track down Dinosaur Bones after reaching Horseshoe Overlook, around or during the game’s second chapter. This location is found in New Hanover, northeast of Flatneck Station and southwest of Twin Stack Pass, in the area known as The Heartlands. It’s there that they’ll find a paleontologist who goes by the name of Deborah McGuinness, and after a brief discussion, Arthur will be able to star tracking down Dinosaur Bone locations that can then be mailed off for various rewards.
After they find and mail off their first Dinosaur Bone location, players will be rewarded with a Quartz Chunk, which can be used to craft the Bear Claw Talisman at the nearest Fence location. Assuming they reach a total 15 mailed Dinosaur Bone locations, they’ll then be rewarded with the unique Skull Statue. Finally, once all 30 Dinosaur Bone locations have been discovered and mailed off, Arthur will receive an invite to Deborah McGuinness’ ranch over at Firwood Rise, where he will be given the Jawbone Knife.
A grand total of 30 different Dinosaur Bone locations are spread all about the Red Dead Redemption 2 map, with the most significant groupings of them being found in New Austin to the south and Ambarino to the north.
