If you want to see a full list of them you can find them on GTALens mentioned above, which lists every single location and you can handily tick off the ones you’ve collected if (for some reason) you want to collect all 200. And if you are wild enough to collect all 200, if you do so in a single day, you’ll be rewarded with the Pumpkin Tee and an additional $50,000. Yes… that really is the reward. We don’t recommend collecting all 200 GTA Online pumpkins unless you really are a hardcore completionist.

You can check your progress towards your 10 (or 200) daily Jack O Lantern pumpkins in the GTA Online Halloween 2023 event from the daily challenges menu, and the Trick Or Treat section. If you’ve had experience with the event in the past, nothing has changed this time around.
