Red Dead Redemption 2: Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

When you have a huge game map like the one of Red Dead Redemption 2 one of the most beautiful things you can do is dot it with mysteries and secrets (both easy and hard to find).

Rockstar did not miss the chance to do it and filled the map with secrets. Some are necessary for 100% completion, others are not (but they are so funny that you will have the temptation to discover them before the necessary ones).

This is what happened with the secret hats and masks: they do not bring any improvement in performance for Arthur but allow customization of the character (and some of these are quite hilarious, so the temptation to make them yours will be substantial).

In this Red Dead Redemption 2 guide, we will see what they are and where you can find them. Please note that once you have one of these, it will be added to your inventory permanently (but just the ones you don’t have to steal from someone).

Where to Find Unique Hats Location

Boater Hat

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

This hat is worn by a single NPC, so all you have to do is know how to find him: you can find this character in the Rodhes post office but only in the afternoon. Please note that this hat can’t be added permanently in your inventory.

Bolero Straw and Pinned Hat

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

You can find these three hats in the Fort Mercer Area (we suggest you go there during the Epilogue due to the incident in Blackwater that prevents you from safely exploring the area during the rest of the game). Please note that those can’t be added permanently in your inventory.

Cattleman, Cutter and Rodeo Hats

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

This hat spawns randomly on NPCs that are in a small farm east of Flat neck Station. In this case, randomly means both that they don’t have an exact time spawn during the day and that they can spawn on a random NPC. So it’s all about luck.

Civil War Hat

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

As you might expect from the name, this hat is tied to an area related to the war (in fact you can find it in the ruins of a fort). If you don’t know which fort are we speaking about, we will tell you: is the one in the southwest of the Van Horn Trading Post (to locate it better, look at the R of Kamassa River in the map and go north of it). Once you’ve reached the fort, go inside and enter the basement: the Hat is waiting for you there.

Conductor’s Hat

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

This hat can be dropped by train conductors and to get one could be difficult. To do that, you have to make them exit their post by committing a crime. At this point, you can punch or kill them to drop the hat. Please note that this hat can’t be added permanently in your inventory.

Crown Bucket and Western Homburg

Miner’s Hat

Unique Masks and Hats Locations Guide

Where would you expect to find a miner’s hat? Obviously in mine and it is here you will find it. If you want to know exactly where it is, we tell you: you will find the Miner’s Hat near Big Valley in West Elizabeth (just south of the gap between the words Big and Valley if you look in the map). Once inside use a lantern, blow the rocks up and go through the hole. Then go right and enter the room you find: Miner’s Hat is waiting for you, with its light at your service: you can turn off the lantern now.

If you want to find this hat to look like a real gambler, all you have to do is enter a cave located behind a massive waterfall next to Window Rock (see at the Ambarino’s A on the map). Be careful and try not to die while attempting to get over the waterfall: it could be very slippery here.

This could be the most challenging hat to find in the whole game. That’s why it is worn by a specific NPC that covers a large area (Braithwaite Manor). So all you have to do is include this area too and trust in your luck. Please note that this hat can’t be added permanently in your inventory.

Scarecrow Hat

If you expect to find a scarecrow hat on a scarecrow you're already on your way; we'll tell you the rest.

Please note that it is better to do it during the night, to avoid making farmers angry.
