Why should I let you kill me when I can hang out and get the money for myself?
Such is the way of an unsporting player, also probably a bad sport.
I love sitting in my apartment when I have a bounty & watching clowns like you sit outside & kill each other while waiting for me to come out.
If you allow to me get to my apartment after a bounty has been placed on me you dont deserve the money.
I do see why it'd be fun, but OP is also talking about those that are already in their apartment when joining a session.
A guy in his apt. with a bounty is just chilling, and you are a moron for being upset with him.
True only about 40% of the time, most of the people who've done it so do on purpose.
Let me stop you right there. If there's a bounty on me and you claim it the last thing you'll be doing is carrying on with your normal game play. I'll hunt you down so badly you'll either get me kicked from the session or you'll hip sessions yourself.
Clash of the egos incoming, at least it was fun reading this.
You can't get an NPC Bounty on your head from inside your apartment. You'll be outside when you get it put on you. So there's the kill window right there - from the time they get the Bounty on them to the time they can get into their apartments.
Get faster, OP, and accept that the runner wants that Bounty as badly as you do, and they have as much right to claim it as anyone else.
These "Bounty Hunters" that want their prey to present themselves for execution... /smh
Spot on, well apart from a NPC bounty can be earned near your apartment (if they steal a random car nearby and it's badly timed by coincidence) and then people will run inside their garage. I agree with a few others and maybe it should just freeze the countdown timer for the bounty to level it out. Otherwise it's up to the person with the bounty whether they want to taunt you from their apartment or not, it's up to you to decide whether you'll let him or go away.
As the last quote above says, most bounties will not let them kill you. That's what it's all about, the chase. So, if you're right outside their place having a war with 5 other people and getting mad over it, there's only you to blame. I personally don't hang around inside my apartment with a bounty, much rather see a chain of people trying to get you and if one does...so what?
