You need to wait people get higher levels. There's no qualified bounty hunters to get you yet.

 Does anyone have any tips for fast tracking this role? I really wanna get to rank 12 AFAP, & would really love the second holster. Currently rank 5. Solo Bounty hunter, sometimes they don't get to come in alive, but that ain't my fault . . . I try but ya'know . . . this game.   Like just before I logged off, I was finishing up a bounty, shot the horses pulling his (oil filled?) wagon. After smoking his security detail, he's sitting on the wagon, so I rope him off, & as I'm tying him up a stray shot from his approaching backup ignites the wagon tank . . .

Rank 12 BH here. Taking a break from BH for a while until they sort out the bug where you don't get the role XP for turning in your bounties. I'm off collecting now. Also I haven't gotten any prompts to go after any player bounties yet.

Leveling this seems v slow to start with, do later single bounties give more exp or are the bounties with multiple targets the way to go every time?

Multiple bounties seem to be the go to. Yeah BH is pretty grindy tbh!

 

Also don't know if it's just me but when doing bounties in Tumbleweed they've spawned a tiny bit north so it's a quick pickup & drop off!

Made worse by that f*cking timer. I'm joining pub posses for them and everyones waiting out the timer. A good 5mins+ standing around like a buncha numpties.

 

I understand why people are doing it but it makes absolutely no f*cking sense for Rockstar to design it like that. The exp and $ per hour for BH is pretty bad from what I've seen and it's largely because of the initial travel time coupled with the 5+ min waits at the end.

Got 2 alive targets now, earned double exp of a regular mission, +700xp for 6 minutes. I'll try get 4 alive targets now.

The exp for single bounties seems rough? Barely makes a dent in the level bar.

I've knocked Bounty hunting on the head for now. I enjoy the gameplay, but I'd rather get the Outlaw Pass done with and the single bounties just don't compare to Collector and Trader XP.

Apparently only the money is more when you wait the timer, and literally only a little more. Not worth it at all imo. Just speedrun those bounties. I'm ticked I wasted so much time waiting out the timer. And then not even getting XP for it after because of the bug :bored:

They need to triple the BH pay + xp to be honest. Spent 15 gold bars just for stranger missions with a capture/kill facade. 

 

Has anyone bought the reinforced lasso yet? What’s it purpose? How well does it keep other players tied up?

Bit of advice as well for BH's

If you knock out your target, equip the normal Lasso and then press B/O to Hogtie them they never wake up. No need for the Reinforced Lasso.

 Had a wicked sick bounty that I had to snatch & grab from a moving train. THAT was one of the coolest bounties so far.

I had that one too last night. Very cool.  Except I tried to step off the train carrying the bounty while it was still going.  Killed me and the bounty.  Oops.

The first Bounty I ever did got free from my Horse and ran off along the trains tracks, as I approached he surrender and got crushed by the train coming behind me. I was amused.

The payout for bounty missions is decent. 

 

I was in a posse doing them last night and was getting over $60 for some of them and always over 600XP. 

 

You definitely get more cash for running the timer down.

This seems to be the one role where waiting for the timer to run down is worth it.  Got 400ish role XP for waiting versus the 200ish for turning them in early.

 Yeah, I lived though. Got another one this morning but the bounty tried to escape by jumping off the train! Well at least his body didn't try to escape on the way back to town, lol

Me and @AlienTwodid a bounty yesterday, where this exact thing happened. Well without the surrendering. We was crossing the train bridge towards st denis, and the bounty got off and ran towards an incoming train. We were forced to just watch the two blips on the map collide.

Is it intentional? Can Targets commit suicide?

I had a bounty in Tall Trees and near the target area a bear came after me.  Just as me, the bear, and the bounty's bodyguards started to tangle my game disconnected.  I so badly wanted to see how that played out.  That would be awesome to see a bear eat your bounty.
