Treasure Map or Wanted Poster is a set of mice the hunters are required to catch for a special reward. The difficulty, number and the location of the mice on the list depend on the type of map, and each type of map yields a different type of Treasure Chest (Bounty Reward in the case of Wanted Posters). The mice on the list may be caught in any order, with exception of the Ringleaders on the Wanted Posters which can only be caught after the other mice on the list.
By default, maps and posters are Common, but they can be upgraded to Rare with Rare Map Dust to increase the loot from the Treasure Chest. If a player upgrades the map, it affects all players following that map. Upgrading a map does not affect the difficulty of the mice on the list, only the rewards for completing the map. All maps can be upgraded.
A hunter can only follow a single Treasure Map/Wanted Poster at any given time. Hunters can choose to discard a map at any time, and can immediately open or join another.
Treasure Maps and Wanted Posters can be found under the Special tab of the inventory, but disappear once they are completed or discarded.
The hunter that opened the map/poster can add up to four other hunters to the team in the case of a treasure map, or one other hunter ("deputy") in the case of a wanted poster. When an additional hunter is added to the map hunt team, this message is displayed for the new member:
- You're now following a Treasure Map! Hunt down all the mice to find the Treasure Chest!
The new member also has this event added to their Hunter's Journal:
- Treasure Map: I have joined in on a treasure hunt! I should help catch the mice required to find the treasure chest!
- Wanted Poster: I have joined in on a Wanted Poster hunt! I should help catch the lawless mice to earn that Bounty Reward!
For every successful catch of mice listed in the Treasure Map, the hunter that caught the mouse receives a Treasure Map Clue collectible as loot. For every successful catch of mice in the Wanted Poster, a message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal instead, one of:
- I've caught a member of the gang! Only X remain until I can smoke out the ringleader!; or
- I've caught the crew and have found where the ringleader is hiding out! I should hunt him down to receive my Bounty Reward!
While on a team, the heads-up-display includes a count of how many mice remain to be caught; clicking on that link gives a pop-up that includes a thumbnail of each mouse, and which have already been caught. The treasure maps indicate which team members have caught which mice; posters don't. Viewing Larry's Loot Lexicon for Treasure Map Clues also lists the remaining mice, even for posters where no map clues are added to the inventory.
The pop-up also includes a button where any hunter on the team can click to apply Rare Map Dust (it does not have to be the person that started the map).
- Rare Treasure Maps reward everyone that helped with upgraded treasure chests containing:
- - Two times the points!
- - Two times the gold!
- - Two times the Ancient Charms!
- - More loot!
- - And twice the chance of super-rare loot!
- An upgraded map doubles the rewards for each hunter!
- It will not change the difficulty of the map, nor will it modify the mice required.
The pop-up also has a button to Discard the map for the original owner (no recovery possible), or to Leave the map for the additional hunters. If an additional hunter leaves, the mice they caught are still tracked for the remaining team members (no progress is lost). The leaving hunter has this message displayed in their Journal:
- I left the treasure hunt. I should hunt and catch a Relic Hunter to find a new Treasure Map!
It is possible to rejoin a map team as many times as desired, right up until the last mouse is caught, but a hunter must be on the team when the last required mouse is caught in order to receive the reward. When the last mouse is caught, all team members receive the following message in their Hunter's Journal:
- Treasure Maps:
- I successfully completed a XXX Treasure Map! Everyone who helped has been rewarded with one XXX Treasure Chest each!
- I should claim my Treasure Chest reward now!
- Wanted Posters:
- I successfully completed a Wanted Poster: XXX! The Marshall granted us our Bounty Reward for turning in this lawless gang of the Wild Bunch. Time to find another Wanted Poster!
- I should claim my reward now!
Clicking on the claim link allows the hunter the option of sharing the news via Facebook, and rewards a Luck Charm to the first three friends that follow that post.
Obtaining a map
In order to obtain a map, a hunter has to open a Treasure Map Scroll Case or Living Garden Scroll Case which is dropped by a Relic Hunter Mouse. In order to obtain a poster, a hunter will need to catch a Bounty Hunter Mouse instead.
Regular Treasure Maps
Catching the mice listed on this map will drop clues which when combined will show you where to find an incredible Treasure Chest!
There are 5 regular Treasure Maps: Easy, Medium, Hard, Elaborate and Arduous. In the Special tab, you can only see that you have a scroll case; you have to open the scroll case to obtain a map, and open the map on the Heads-up Display to see whether the map is common or rare, and which of the five levels it is. These maps typically contain mice in a variety of locations. Hunters can invite up to 4 friends to help catch the mice for these maps.
Easy Treasure Map
These maps contain 15 mice.
Medium Treasure Map
These maps contain 20 mice.

Living Garden Treasure Maps
When the Relic Hunter is caught, a Living Garden Scroll Case may drop instead of a Treasure Map Scroll Case. Living Garden maps contain 30 mice that can only be found in Living Garden, Lost City, Sand Dunes, Twisted Garden, Cursed City and Sand Crypts. Hunters can invite up to 4 friends to help catch the mice for these maps.
These posters contain mice that can only be found in Varmint Valley, including Crew and Ringleader subsets that can be found only when the Wanted Poster is opened. Hunters can invite one friend to help catch the mice for these posters. The Crew mice can be caught in Claw Shot City or Gnawnian Express Station, while the Bounty Hunter to start the poster, as well as the Misc and Ringleader mice to complete the poster, are found only in Claw Shot City.
Completing the poster will reward each hunter with a Bounty Reward.

Meanwhile, if a hunter owned a Halloween Scroll Case at the conclusion of the event, then the following message was displayed in the Hunter's Journal as the item converted to a regular Treasure Map Scroll Case:
