You're a scumbag if you camp in your apartment with a bounty

As someone who likes to kill bounty hunters I disagree.

 

I love it when bounty hunters are camping, waiting for their victims. It fills me full of joy hearing the bounty hunters like yourself cry down the mic like a douche, and the fact you can't even kill your target or me, makes it even more satisfying.

I like to set bounties on the bounty hunters, myself.

 

From the safety of my apartment, of course.

 

Oh, the rage, the rage....

When i receive a bounty from either a player or NPC, wherever i am i drive to the nearest airfield pick up a plane and just fly around high up, if they are coming to get me then i make it a good challenge.....bountys dont bother me tho its just apart of the game that makes it alittle bit more fun

Meh, I don't realize why people rage about this so much. You need to survive with a bounty for what, around 48 mins of real time? To get 9000 dollars max? Unless you're one of those players who got gigantic bounties put on them by glitchers, then yeah, it might be worth it, but if that's not the case, you can easily get 5 times as much money in those 48 minutes it takes you to get 9k by camping. Whenever I get a standart bounty put on me, I just go about my business, only I also switch to the larger map to take care of any potential hunters.

I like to play out my bounties, I'll even stay longer on the server if I get one when I'm about to leave, but I make the hunters work for their money.

Yesterday I tried something new though, I got in the submersible and went deep sea exploring while I had a bounty on me.

Are there any counter to this, other than possibly ramming you with another sub?

The only thing that bothers me about players with a bounty running to their apartments is all the people I kill that come out of that apartment that aren't the bounty I intended to kill. When you have stickies laid outside the entrance you don't really have time to decide whether or not you're gonna blow up the guy who just walked out. You either do it now and kill them or wait and miss.

 

I've sadly assassinated many unintentional targets this way.

I wouldn't care, more cash for me and I'll still hunt other bounties while having one on myself. I've only been killed twice while I had a bounty on me and both times I'd forgotten I had a bounty. If I'm aware that I have one I make sure I'm hard to kill.

I'm really getting tired of people camping in their apartments as soon as they get a bounty on their head. As a bounty hunter it really isn't that bad, I kill you ONCE get the bounty then continue on with whatever.

 

I'd like to have getting into properties disabled if you have a bounty.

Ok man, thanks for letting me know. When I get a bounty I'll let you know so you can come and blow my face off. It's just ONCE, right? So there's no problem at all really. We'll all continue on with whatever. :)

Bit extreme to say you're a "scumbag" if you hide in your apartment. Some people would prefer to survive the bounty rather than survive the 45 minute chase but the game freely allows this so it's not their fault!

 

My preference would be to change the core game mechanics to not always show blips on the radar. With an intelligent change to the system, surviving a bounty, or hunting for bounties, could be far more challenging, rewarding ...and fun. Then people might not be so inclined to sit in their apartment (or other safe location.)

I can see both sides of this argument. On the bounty hunter's side, it is highly aggravating if your target flees and holds out in his or her garage or apartment because A: They can not do a single thing about it except rage and cuss and B: Their target is now mocking them by being just on the other side and safely out of danger.

 

However, on the target's side, they either A: Want to survive a bounty to collect the money or B: Do not want to die for whatever reason. So the target thinks Hey, just go to the (garage or apartment), I'll be safe there. So if he or she makes it, they are now safe from bounties and after a mere 48 minutes have with ease survived the bounty and collected the cash and can keep said cash without a couple of hospital bills.

 

Many of you bounty hunters will say things like "But it's only 9 f*cking grand!!!!" or "They're cowards, scumbags, scaredy-cats--!!" or "They won't face me like a man!!", the list is endless of accusations and rants, and they certainly have their facts and stats. However, not everyone wants to go 1 vs All. Some people would like the extra 1K-9K for an extra funds boost. Others would simply not like to have to watch their back all the time for 48 minutes. Others would not like to be repeatedly spawn camped (and it DOES happen, even if the bounty has already been collected), and so on.

 

The problem with this topic is that both sides have their valid and invalid points, and the thread probably needs to be locked.

I kind of camped in my apartment last night with a bounty while I ate dinner. I came outside and killed a guy repeatedly from the Weazel apartment I live at. So easy to move from one enterence from the next then just kill them over and over again. I got 12 kills before I got bored. One guy 7 times before he finally quit. I like standing really close to the front door and they walk up thinking I am still inside then blow their face off with an auto shotty.
