I recently started doing this when I felt like getting into a freeroam fight. I steal car after car until one of the NPCS puts a bounty on me. Then I only have to wait about 30 seconds before a white dot comes my way.
I'm lazy, so this is an easy way to get into a shootout without me needing to chase people. I also get the advantage of being set up at a good vantage point by the time people come over to claim the bounty.
Eventually they kill me and drive away, but then I just get another bounty and send them a friendly text asking them to come on over.
Anyone else like to do this?
