Cigarette Cards are easily the largest set of collectibles in the already side-quest filled world of Red Dead Redemption 2.
There are 144 to find across the world - 12 collections with 12 cards in each. The good news is you don't need to get them all - just a single collection in order to satisfy the 100% completion requirement.
As such, here's the World Champions Cigarette Cards locations - which, provided you do one thing, can be completed at any point in the game.
For more help, our Red Dead Redemption 2 walkthrough explains the requirements for fully completing the game's many story missions.
World Champions Cigarette Cards locations explained
Cigarette Cards are often found throughout the world, usually in drawers or in loot boxes, so come prepared with some silent lock picks if you want to not cause much trouble.
But, before this we will need to ensure that you have completed the Stranger mission to find the reverend at Flatneck Station. Doing so will add extra cards to the map - one for each set - and allow you to sell them all afterwards for bonus rewards.
What rewards are those? For the first of any set, you'll get the Vintage Civil War Handcuffs - used to craft a Talisman - while for the World Champions specifically, you'll get Valerian Root.
Once you have one set complete, then the Cigarette Cards requirement of the 100% completion total for Red Dead Redemption 2 is then ticked off. Of course there's plenty of others once you're done, from Dreamcatcher locations to Dinosaur Bone locations, when you have the time!
