Hi, I heard that Rockstar locked bounty feature for players, but I wonder if it is still possible to get them from NPCs.

I've been trying to get "Run like the wind" achievement (survive a game day with a bounty) and stealing cars for hours in a public session, but to no avail. I have never gotten one bounty on my head. I was not on passive mode either.

Could someone confirm that it can and has happened in the last couple weeks?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: May have to add that I am on PC. Would like a confirmation that it works on PC.

Yes, Rockstar has disabled the entire Bounty system in the game, so it is impossible at this time to have an NPC put a bounty on you.

 

 

I believe they've done this in response to nefarious modders with mod menus who have used the bounty system to put false and exorbitantly priced bounties on other players.

I take it that is just for pc?

Can you get a 9k for npc car steal? I have only ever seen 9k when a player sets it.

It looks like it also the case on PS3. I must say I'm quite happy with that as i keep enjoying daily objectives every day.

The only daily objective that was forcing me to go in public session was "collect a bounty";

and that was really a concern since it became almost impossible to find a public session not messed up by modders.

About 3 hours ago i jacked an suv while doing a MC cocaine delivery and got a $7,000 bounty. Playing solo i got the bounty myself and in normal time. Most bounties on PS4 the past year have been only 1K or 2K when i jack a car. Back in 2013 and 2014 on PS3 7K bounties were common when i was stealing Baller suv's. In 2015 and 2016 on PS3 bounties for car theft dropped in frequency and the amount. Also bounties were lasting longer and longer like 3 real days. I steal fewer cars now as spawning rides is easy as a ceo, but it seems i still sometimes get small bounties when i jack rides.

Haven't received a bounty in a while.

Also haven't seen "Collect a Bounty" in the Daily Objectives, so that's something.

On XB1 you still get bounties from robbing an NPC car, got one myself last night.

Lucky I recently finished the bounty hunting platinum award if R* are doing away with it.

Jet griefers will be pleased, nothing to stop them going passive all they like now.

Well, it's quite easy to check. Call Lester and try to put a bounty on someone.

On PS3, the feature is desactivated: It says "You need to reach level 10"

It looks like bounties have been re-activated on PS3 today

Yeah it was a mistake - the Rockstar Support agent gave out incorrect information, hence them thinking it was re-enabled. I doubt they'll ever get re-enabled on Xbox360 or PS3.
