My solution for avoiding civilian bounties is to run over the person you just stole the car from. (Make sure they are dead)

 

It works 9 out of 10 times for me.

While I understand they can be annoying, lately I've been trying to get bounties on me to draw people in for a fight.  Climb up on a building and fight off everyone for as long as you can.  There is a large building which has a campus look in the front that is great for his; its near the LSC that everyone goes to.  Leave either side of the custom shop and head south; there is a large area of grass between the two roadways.  The building overlooks this on one side.  There is a ladder behind the palm tree close to the police station.  Good luck.
 
Edit:  I know these are not the best directions lol.  Wish I could provide a picture or something.
 
Edit 2:  The building in the background is the one I was referencing:

While I'm not one for randomly killing people in free roam, I just might try this. Just to see how long I can make it before someone gets me.
Considering the crack shots 95% of the population appear to be with the sniper rifle, probably minutes.

Not so bad myself sir ;)

I enjoy them, but really.... its 1 death. I dont see a problem unless your car is destroyed, and thats not a problem.

Another fun way to wait out bounties is to travel to LS Airport and get a buzzard. Then fly to the top of a skyscraper. Preferably the Maze Bank Tower. I had 2 people come in heli's to try and get me but RPG'ed them haha.

Civilian bounties are the best. Easy money. I especially love when i get like a big 7k one then proceed to go to invite only session and then im free for 45 minutes to steal whatever car i please and go on a non stop liquor store robbery spree, finally steal the most expensive non premium car i can find and sell it. Boom... Bounty survived+store robberies+Stolen car sold = 20k. Not too shabby profit and kills the time pretty well.

The problem is that, otherwise, there's never any bounties. I think that it could afford to be reduced in how often it is to just when car-jacking someone for a car worth 50K+ (with the likelihood of getting chased increasing based on value), but once I got a 9K bounty for hijacking some crappy car like a minivan or something.

The bounty system in free roam is one of the few things free roam has going for it, i love it when someone bounties me - guaranteed action instead of the whole 'hmmm i could do one of the few jobs there is, but im not sure if i want to spend 15 minutes on connecting and loading, and spend another 15 minutes getting back to a decent free roam session' ... 

 

edit : biggest problem with bounties imo is that players often are cowards and just leaves the session, when they find out that they cant escape me ... The fun arrives when someone mans up, and in these cases its usually fun for all parties involved ...

BevHillsCopGTA.png

i go to many LSC....which one is the one that everyone goes to?? I use the two in the south west of the map the most

 

 

It's the west most LSC I believe, in the city; not the two that are on the East side of Los Santos.

 

 

 

 

While I'm not one for randomly killing people in free roam, I just might try this. Just to see how long I can make it before someone gets me.

Considering the crack shots 95% of the population appear to be with the sniper rifle, probably minutes.

 

 

Eventually people figure out the sniper rifle is the best option, but there are several levels and places to move too on that building.  There are also several HVAC units on the roof for cover.  I've found that when a bounty is on the line, people tend to speed up in their cars and jump out looking for a quick kill.

 

The spot is even better if you have a crew member help hold it down.

I thought the worst issue in GTAO had to do with cloud servers and lost saves.

 
I sure was wrong!

And there are no consequences in real life for stealing somebody's car.

The bounties rock. Fin.

Anyone notice only women NPC'S you carjack will get you a bounty? Maybe because the men try and beat you up while the women run away screaming like girls.. A jerry can can fix there running and screaming.

I had a 7k bounty on me put by a NPC, chased by 5 guys. Loose control, end up in the water where the submarine is located. I plant a sticky bomb incase someone tries to jack it. No one follows me into the water, they still at the pier. After like two mins, I get to the surface and immediately blow up. Someone had been waiting to shoot the sticky bomb, and did it. THAT'S why I like NPC bounties.

My only issue regarding the topic is it seams as if R* contradicts itself.  They have the NPCs put bounties on players which encourages violence towards that player.  That's fine, but R* has also made a point to punish people by labeling them "bad sport" for killing someone by blowing their car up.

 

Point is, if I see that red dot coming towards me on the screen and I happen to be standing there with the rocket launcher readily available...... You're dead and your car is as well.  I'm awarded and punished at the same time.

 

Either way, I'm not going to complain about it because it's a game.....  But it does seem to give mixed signals on what's acceptable.

Bounties are about the only things which makes freeroam interesting besides screwing around with mates.

 

The best part is when multiple people go for 1 bounty and start killing each other in order to get there first, only for the conflict to continue to escalate into WW3 with tanks and buzzards

I'll take a 7-9kbounty on my head from a civvie any day. Invite only sesh, messing around for 48 minutes and it's yours!

 

why do people Always act like this is a good way of making money?

you can make 10 times that in the same amount of time EASY by racing or doing missions

 

quit hiding like a little bitch and just take it like a man

I like the civilian bounties.  I like the fact that rockstar is trying to make every action have actual consequences that you have to plan and deal with.  I don't like being spoiled in a game like this but hey to each their own.  The more bounties the better IMO the best moment i've had in the game was a 20 minute bounty chase where three guys were hunting me down.  INTENSE

I agree it's stupid and here's why:

Bad sport system. Simple as that.

If you got a semi-decent player who has a bounty on them, chances are, unless they die quickly, they'll get into a car and run. Chances are it's their car. See where I'm going?
Twice now I've been warned I'm being a "bad sport" because i accidentally blew up the car trying to shoot out tires. Idk if i hit the gas tank or the cars really damaged, but it just happens outta nowhere.

That's literally my only problem with this game. Like you already have to pay the insurance, isn't that good enough?
I guess it's because you got these "trolls" who just sit and blow up your car but it's gta and to be expected.

Love how people just say dumb sh*t and call him a whiner or bitch when he made valid points. Those are the type of people that don't know how to socialize. Smh.
