Dinosaur Bones are collectibles that can be found all across the map in Red Dead Redemption 2.


The search is sparked after the mission "A Test of Faith", where the player meets Deborah MacGuiness, an aspiring paleontologist who requests the player to help her in her search for dinosaur bones.

There are a total of 30 different bones scattered across the map, and the player needs to find at least one of the bones to achieve 100% game completion.
