For those who still see cheaters in a lobby putting large bounties on other players don't fret. I believe Rockstar has possibly put a fix on the hacked bounties. 

 

When i first logged on today I noticed my bank of 4 Billion was reset to a merely 1.2 Million. Seeing this and realizing Rockstar actually fixed the game i left my apartment to see if anything else has changed. While I was exiting my apartment a notification popped up saying I have received a bounty. When i first arrived outside I checked to see how much and what do you know, $200 million bounty. 

 

Seeing this I backed out and proceeded to wait the hour in a private session so i could be rich again ;) whenever i switched lobbies the message saying i had a bounty put on me stayed so i know it should have worked. After an hour of waiting it said I have survived the bounty and received $9,000.

 

My theory is that Rockstar did not block being able to put large bounties on people, they blocked receiving the reward! And to see if it could happen again, what do you know another bounty of $2 billion was placed on me, i left and joined my friends private session and he killed me and only received $9,000 aswell!

 

Good job Rockstar!

 

tl;dr - Got a hacked bounty, only gave me 9k for surviving the hour.

well, I was already online, hoping to get such a bounty, but it looks like it's not worth it

You've gotta be f*cking kidding me... This mess was not created by rockstar, it was created by the f*ckwit exploiters.

Interesting. Good to see they took precautions this time. Maybe this will buy them some time to fix everything before some idiots figure out how to share millions again.

not true. i did a mission today and the payout was $23k. IIRC base invaders still pays $25k for first timers too.

I guess that means they are gonna outright force the money onto players rather than letting players kill each other over it.

Nice, that's cool.

I'm still grabbing those bounties though. 1k is still 1k, you dig?

The only safe bounties are friends because I'm a doormat and I can't stand losing friends.

Basically if I'm about to kill you, send a friend request and I go away abd bring you a car lol

how can you not blame R* for a serious lack of security on an online game?

ofcourse the hackers are the ones that actually did all the hacking

but ultimately it's R* responsibility to Ensure the security of their game.

 

I mean this .Json tunables thing was way too easy and definitely a big mistake on R* part

one they pretty much admitted to by finally encrypting it

And hopefully anyone stupid enough to do this has their cash wiped and end up broke with no Adders left!

Amen to that.

 

If these kids were not so damn impatient or had the mental capacity to be subtle about they're glitches they'd have maybe got away with it for longer.  Either play the damn game or GTFO!  It's not a difficult game.

HA

funny you should use that example

if you smash my window I can call my Insurance and get everything you stole refunded

if I leave said window open I'm screwed because I did not properly secure my belongings

that's exactly what R* did, they left the window wide open

actually them leaving everything on the front lawn would be a more fitting analogy XD

now if Rockstar would fix it so these cowards with bounties on their heads couldn't go run and hide in their house, garage, LSC and such. nothing i hate more than to go looking for bounties only to find them hiding like this is lame. why even have bounties if all you have to do is hide away like a coward to escape it.

i agree, micro transactions need to be left to mobile games you get for free, not a game you are spending 60 bucks to buy initially, plus in future whatever DLC might be paid. Most games end up costing about 100+ dollars once DLCs are out, so the need for micro transactions in my opinion is petty

 

but thats just my opinion

i'm not taking about stopping the timer, i don't think they should even be able to get in to these place and hide in the first place.
