Just a quick question about bounties to help me clear something up. If I get a bounty and then go to Los Santos Customs and sell a car or change server does the bounty reset the time effectively restarting the bounty? I've had a bounty for a while and the only thing I can think of is that I went to LS Customs and sold a car and it's restarted it.

No, the bounty time doesn't restart when you switch sessions or go to LS Customs. Nothing "resets" the bounty timer, it's only paused when you're not playing in online freemode as the character with a bounty.

 

The chances are you haven't waited long enough.

Well that's what I thought but it's been nearly 2 hours now.

Have you been doing jobs? Deathmatches, races? The timer pauses while you're doing jobs, I believe.

 

In addition; did someone kill you in freemode?

No I've done any jobs or races or anything really. I stole a Baller to sell and got the bounty then drove to LS Customs at the top of the map but couldn't sell it due to having sold one a bit earlier so I headed to m garage to store the vehicle for later when someone sent mercenaries to kill me... which they did. I then recovered the vehicle and went to my garage. I waited for about 40 minutes then noticed that other players were a safe distance away so went and sold the vehicle, the bounty didn't pass but eventually did around 50 minutes later just after I posted this thread.

I don't think Mercs can be used to claim a bounty, but I could be wrong.

 

Try switching to an invite-only session. If it doesn't notify you of the bounty, you probably don't have one.

I got the bounty money about 50 minutes after selling the car, I think it does reset it when you go into Customs or change session. I know the mercenaries didn't claim for the player that sent them.

My understanding is that it would be paused while you are anywhere but outside in freeroam.

I.E. 23 minutes left, drive in mod shop, come out 5 minutes later, you STILL have 23 minutes remaining. Same for apartment, missions, races, Ammu-nation, et cetera.

Of what you write I get it as you have been waiting in your garage. This stops the timer. You have too be outside of the apartment for the timer too run, and then it takes 48 minuts until it's over.
