Mysterious Bounty?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I was in this one session (I was in passive mode the whole time because I am not really into PvP). After the lobby started to die out I decided to find a new session. Once I joined I drove out of my garage and I was greeted with a $9000 bounty. I was bewildered on how I got this bounty. I was in passive mode and I got no notification about it until I left my garage in the new session and I haven't stole any NPC cars.

 

How could of this happened? Has anyone else experienced this or am I going crazy. I also can't go into Passive since I have this bounty on my head.

^what ThiagoBass says.

Sometimes this happens. Probally someone who didn't like you being in passive mode.

 

Of iemand van Curaçao? :-p

Don't know. Sometimes passive mode removes itself.

You can't go into passive when you've a bounty on you, that's the only thing I know related to bounties & passive mode.

I put a bounty on someone who was in passive before. Really weird. Not sure why it let me.

words of wiki:

 

"The Passive protection mode and the bounty system are incompatible. To ensure fairness, a player in Passive Mode can not have a new bounty set upon them, nor can a player who has a bounty set on them proceeed to enter passive mode while the bounty is active."

The bounty was probably set before you went into passive and then you went into passive as the bounty was being set. The game got confused and queued your bounty until you entered a vehicle (removing passive)?

I'm not sure about your situation but I started an invite only session on two separate occasions on PS3 and both times got a mystery bounty of $1000 o____0

Your mystery $1,000 bounty may be from stealing a car and you may have not noticed the notification that appears soon after the theft. Car theft bounties also now last forever it seems with the active bounty displaying when you start a session and after doing missions.

 

On the ps3 the max bounty for car theft is $7,000 i think. A year or more ago bounties also were collected sooner in invite only.

No, moron, that's the mugger. I place bounties on players all the time who are in passive mode. R patched it so that a person can not lose a bounty while in passive mode or while hiding in their apartment. I think mommy beat you with the stupid stick!

Yeah, just got one of those, I was doing heists and not even stealing cars.

 

Anyhoo, casually driving around with my 1K bounty buying snacks and ammo in my Voltic, which I guess looks close enough to a super, that a Hydra slowly flew over me to check what car I was driving, not shooting at me. LOL gotta love the paying for insurance in occupied PVs and Trollsiris and Troll20.

As someone who used to herald in the apocalypse with the Hydra, now that the Osiris and T20 are out, I usually do a fly by first to make sure I'm not about to lose $30,000 just to kill someone

Npcs can put bounties on you while you're passive and players can if you're in a vehicle while passive, in which case your blip on the map will register as normal

Now I just pull out my t20 and go passive in jet douche lobbies and bait them into blowing my car up over and over

I've had a bounty put on me when I've been on passive mode. It's strange as I've had the option to put one on a passive mode player but not that often

Can you put a bounty on different people back to back like set bountys to all the users that are in the session?

No, one bounty per session til the bounty is claimed or outlasted and then that player has a cool down from bounties

The bounty was from an NPC. It was placed on you after tanking an NPC car but didnt activate until you came out of passive mode.

 

Happens to me all the time when I farm modified Sentinels. I do it in passive so I don't get harassed when I'm too lazy to switch to a solo session.

I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to get a bounty, while in passive.

I'm also pretty sure that this is not validated. (ie. the interface button might have been disabled, but if you manage to call the service, it'll still set the bounty)

 

Rockstar is not much into back-end validation. (which is one of my only real complaints vs Rockstar... they seem to be unable to effectively jailbox certain procedures, which is a serious development fault)

 

If you can spawn objects in online, you can set a bounty when it's not meant to be.
