With more than 40 styles to choose from, here's where you can find every Found and Stolen hat in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an American treasure. Not for the fact that it's pretty much a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' in which you can partner up with grizzly bears and re-enact that one scene from The Revenant, but merely for the fact there are more than 40 different hats that you can find in the world and swap and stash for safekeeping.
Some of them come at a price – such as brawling with innocent NPCs or spending eight million hours trying to break into a train station – so we put together an extensive guide on the cowboy accessories that you need in your life.
Spoiler: A couple of unique hats were omitted for the sake of main story spoilers.

Bag hat

Presenting the Amazing Bag Man
If fashion isn't your thing, you can always grab this makeshift accessory from one of the 'swamp people' in Butcher Creek. Roanoke Ridge is somewhat of a strange place, but it's worth the trip.

The Boater

When The Love Boat gets rebooted...
The Boater is one of the few hats that can be found in the town of Rhodes. Your best bet is the Rhodes train station, as an NPC can be found wearing it during his afternoon leisure time.

Bucket hat

A bucket Schoolboy Q would be proud of
This old-fashioned Bucket hat can be looted from an NPC at the Appleseed Timber Company. Just be prepared for hostility if you didn't help the Appleseed foreman with his wolves problem.

The Cattleman

The Cattleman is one of three hats that can be found on a small farm east of Flatneck Station, in the Heartlands. The NPCs that reside there spawn at random times throughout the day/night.

Civil War Hardee

Blues Traveler fans only please
Whether you're passing by or taking on a bounty for the Lemoyne Raiders gang leader Lindsey Wofford, the Civil War Hat (and Civil War Knife) can be found in the basement of Fort Brennand.

Classic Raccoon Mountain hat

Because Davy Crockett is an American hero
Remember the Davy Crockett fellow from the main saloon in Valentine? Instigate a bar brawl or challenge him to a friendly (or not so friendly) bar fight to knock his hat off and steal your prize.

Conductor's cap

For when one bucket isn't enough
This super elusive cap can be obtained via the stagecoach drivers around Six Point Cabin in the Heartlands. The stagecoach drivers themselves are known to wear full white or dark blue suits.

Crown Bucket

Like the Western Homburg hat, the Crown Bucket can be found on an NPC in Annesburg.

The Cutter

Nothing says 'cowboy' like the Cutter
The Cattleman is one of three hats that can be found on a small farm east of Flatneck Station.

Farmer's hat

The Farmer's hat is one of the few stolen ones that can be found on NPCs in Strawberry or via the various stagecoaches heading in and out of town. Tip: Fire a warning shot and get robbing.

The Fisherman

Unlike other hats, the Fisherman unlocks after you've caught all 13 Legendary Fish, and receive an invitation from Jeremy Gill. The Flat Iron Lake angler has a cutscene you don't want to miss.

Flop hat

This hat's floppier than a bunny's ear
If you’re feeling floppy, the Flop can be found on an NPC in Emerald Ranch, in the Heartlands.

The Gaucho

This significant piece of South American culture can be located on an NPC over by Caliga Hall in Lemoyne or via the different NPCs that travel to and from Strawberry in West Elizabeth.

High hat

This Derby fare can be found on riders and stagecoaches outside of Strawberry and Van Horn.

The Homburg

For when things aren't dark and stormy
The Homburg is one of the few stolen hats that can be found on NPCs in Strawberry or via the stagecoaches heading in or out of town. Tip: Vehicle blockades are a criminal's best friend.

Jipijapa Panama

This classy straw hat is one of many that can be found on NPCs at the train station in Rhodes.

Military Cavalry

The '90s version of the cowboy hat
The military head cover can be found on an NPC inside or outside the train station in Rhodes.

Military Forage cap

A quick trip to Shady Belle will toss you into a gunfight with Lemoyne Raiders who own this hat.

Military Mountain

The Mountain cap can be found on the U.S. Army soldiers in Fort Wallace. It can also be looted off the same NPCs during any mission where you're helping the Wapiti Indian Reservation.

Military Officer's hat

The latest in Lemoyne Raiders fashion
Head over to the Raiders hideout in Shady Belle or stumble upon a group traveling in Lemoyne.

Miner's Lamp

Screenshot of Red Dead Redemption 2.
It's like a nightlight, but for a cowboy
If you're pro dynamite, blowing up the rocks at the entrance of the mines in Beryl's Dream, in Big Valley, will lead you to this miner gear, and a body that's armed with the rare Wide-Blade Knife.

The Moonshiner

Screenshot of the Moonshine Hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Because prohibition is so 1920s
The Moonshiner's delight can be found in two places. First, on an NPC over in Emerald Ranch in the Heartlands. Secondly, from the 'swamp people', who're set up at Butcher Creek in Roanoke Ridge.

Morion helmet

It's like Deadliest Warrior, but better
Get prepared for a hike. This elegant 16th Century helmet can only be found on a frozen NPC at the very top of Mount Hagen. It gets chilly up there so bring warm clothes, and rum, of course.

The Nevada

Screenshot of the Nevada Hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Redefining the meaning of 'classic'
The Nevada hat is somewhat of a tricky grab, as it lies behind a waterfall next to Window Rock.

Newsboy cap

This somewhat missable cap can be grabbed from one of Leviticus Cornwall's goons during the story missions The Sheep And The Goats, An Honest Mistake, and Just A Social Call.

Panama Fedora

A fedora that was meant for fun in the sun
The Ecuadorian fedora is one of many that can be found on NPCs at the train station in Rhodes.

Plantation Gambler

If you hate the Braithwaites, loot this big brim from one of the NPC guards at Braithwaite Manor.

Roanoke hat

Screenshot of the Rodeo Hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
A big ol' hat for high rollers
Like the Bag hat, the Roanoke can be stolen from one of the 'swamp things' in Butcher Creek.

The Rodeo

This Cattleman is one of three hats that can be found on a small farm east of Flatneck Station.

Scarecrow Derby

Monopoly: Red Dead 2 Edition
The Derby above can be found on the head of a scarecrow in a cornfield on the southern side of the Braithwaite Manor. If you prefer stealthing over chaos, use a throwing knife to knock it down.

Scarecrow hat

Fashion trends from Guthrie Farm
Like the Derby above, this classic Scarecrow Hat can be retrieved from a scarecrow on Guthrie Farm over in the Heartlands. The owner is kind of a jerk (especially at night) so bring a lasso.

Scarecrow sombrero

Screenshot of the Scarecrow Sombrero hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Because The Dark Knight still rules
This sombrero lies on the head of a scarecrow in a tall field on the western edge of Caliga Hall.

Slouch Bucket

Buckets on buckets on buckets
It's a bucket hat that has no chill, and it can be stolen from a 'swamp thing' in Butcher Creek.

Straw Boater

The Straw Boater was designed for Where's Waldo fans, as it's known to be found on an NPC that's just west of the barbershop in Saint Denis. Tip: He's a big fan of wearing suspenders.

The Tricorn

Screenshot of the Tricorn Hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The latest from the George Washington line
The Tricorn hat can be found in the wreckage of a ship on the largest island in Flat Iron Lake, which is in the Great Plains. You'll need a boat so invest in camp upgrades or 'borrow' one from an NPC.

Viking helmet

A sneak peek of God Of War II
Arthur Morgan's no Kratos, but he can be if you grab this helmet and the Viking Hatchet from the historic gravesite, which is northwest of Annesburg, and just across the river from Deer Cottage.

Western Homburg

Screenshot of the Western Homburg hat in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The Hamburglar would be proud
Much like the OG, the Western Homburg can be found on a random NPC in or near Annesburg.

Workman's flat cap

Annesburg may or may not be home to a million different flat caps. This one can be found in the mine shafts or on the head of a nearby worker who's making his way up or down the mine paths.

The Worn Flop

The Worn Flop can either be found on a random NPC or wagon driver who's moseying around Emerald Ranch, or during the companion side mission Hunting A Bison With Charles.

Worn Stovepipe

Two words: swamp people.
