This is getting tedious now. Hardly any bounties are giving me XP upon completion.

 

I've been lobby hopping and fast travelling to stay away from other players, but even this isn't working consistently enough for me to make any real progress through the ranks.

I'm collector rank 17, spent like ONE HOUR collecting.

Bounty Hunter Rank 16, spent like 14 hours on it

Apart from Collector (rank 20), the bugs of BH and Trader are really hindering my progress.

 

Trader is at rank 13, I'm basically lobby hopping to find some/any animals, they eventually dry up and I'm doing small, 1-3 unit, local sales back to back just to make the XP tick over more quickly from the limited supplies I can gather.

 

BH is at rank 3, I can't even find a way to slowly grind out XP like I can with the Trader role. I spent 2 hours last night lobby hopping, travelling around the map to do bounties in low population areas and I only made around BH 500XP.

 

I'm probably just going to grind out the 7 Trader ranks I have left to go and hope BH gets fixed in the meantime.

Have you checked the farms for animals and changed zones as well? I went through 1-2 levels where the whole of Heartlands was empty but then it soon went back to being like Snow White, hopefully it doesn’t last too long for you! I never used the medium wagon once, just kept doing 25 unit deliveries until I unlocked the large wagon and then the levels just start flowing in at over 3000xp per delivery.

I do check the farms, they're hit and miss, but currently my best source of animals. I've been loading my hunting wagon up with sheep or pigs, one on my horse and another dragged with the lasso if enough animals spawn.

 

I've been changing lobby and fast travelling across the map regularly, no joy so far though.

 

I've got the large wagon but I keep selling little and often, would it be better to leave it alone and only do large deliveries for the lump sum of Trader XP?

 

I managed to get up to rank 15 earlier today through non stop sales, a couple of supply missions and finishing high placed in Trade Route. Now I just want to get to rank 20 and concentrate on grinding out BH XP, as a lone wolf I've got a feeling that's going to be a b*tch of a grind, especially with all the no XP bounties I'm getting.

I was wondering if it was worth it to buy the medium wagon or wait until I unlock the large one

From what I understand you have to purchase the medium wagon before you can purchase the large wagon.

Sadly you have to buy the medium one first before you can buy the large one. I just held off until I had unlocked the large one then bought them both at the same time.

 Been such a pain in the rear, trying to get BH XP. I really just wanna get to rank 15. I just finished the W & R Co. Pass this morning, & even though I'm truly half-a$$ing it, my Trader role is now rank 7 while I've been struggling to get through rank 11 BH, & working hard at it :/. Haven't even really worked at Collector & that's about to jump to rank 4. What's the secret to supersizing the Collector role? & Is there any way to take advantage of Bounty Hunting despite the glaring issues? I'm a solo Bounty Hunter, but I made sure to grab the reinforced lasso, bolas, tracking arrows, & bounty wagon.

When you get the metal detector you can ride around on your horse and just find collectibles EVERYWHERE. As soon as you get this item your level will rocket and you'll be done in a day or so. It's kind of ridiculous how unbalanced the progression is in that role, as is the earning capacity.

No idea on that specific one but I did do another 6-man bounty last night and got them all in alive and we waited out the timer to the last 30 seconds, for which we got 1.1k exp and about $75.

Nice! I'm trying to get all 6 alive (solo) but 1 flee everytime. I don't know if only 1 is programmed to escape, or if the others will go too if I run after the fugitive

Depends on the specific bounty in my experience. I've had ones where no one runs and some where they do.  The one I had last night was up near Window rock in Ambarino, in that homestead.

 

Solo will be tough though especially if it's in a hideout where there's other enemies, bolas might be handy in that situation.

BIG NEWS EVERYONE!

Apparently you can turn Bounties in at any Sherrifs office/jail. They even have voiced lines about not expecting you.

I've done this before.  But then last night I tried dropping a bounty off in Rhoades when it told me to go to Saint Denis, and they wouldn't accept the bounty at all.  I even carried him into the cell and dropped him and the game just wouldn't accept it.

There’s a trick that might work if you are still having trouble with animals, start a BH contract but ignore it and just go hunting instead.

Rank 20 across the board now and out of all the roles BH is by far the most tedious to level which isn't helped by the bugs. That being said I do think it's a really chill thing to do with a good group, I'm hoping they add a bit more depth to it somehow though cause it's a little basic, at least when you're doing 1-man bounties that is anyway. Well organised groups doing 4-6 man posters is a lot of fun.

 

Dual gun spinning is 😍

And how exactly are you using your horse and wagon at the same time?

started BH yesterday. Man this is a grind........ 168 XP. Sometimes 200XP. Seldom 300XP. How is the XP defined to have such varieties ? Luckily im only interested in the BH Camp Theme. The rest i dont care. But i need around 30 hunts more to come to level 5. Haizzzzzzz.

Damn this wagon is expensive, so I dead eyed all 4 criminals and carried them like the cutscene, waited until the lasts 30 seconds and... 407 bountyXP, 28$. If alive 35 maybe? doesn't seem worthy

I make my horse flee, call in the wagon, load it up with 5 carcasses, dismiss the wagon, whistle for my horse, put a carcass on it, drag another with the lasso. When at camp donate the 2 I have with me to Cripps, make my horse flee, call in the wagon and donate the 5 stored on there.

Are the legendary bounties a limited time thing each week? And do you have to rank up to get them? Don't really want to rush ranking up, especially with this one being more difficult to do.

It’s dependant on how much time you have left, the less time the more xp you get. So if I can remember correctly, if you have 30 seconds remaining on the timer then you should get max xp at 400xp. Be careful though because the Bounty Hunter role xp is bugged and a lot of people myself included get no role xp for handing in the bounty.

From what I've experienced, if the screen fades to black you get no xp. If the bounty triggers without the fade you get it. I just jump lobbies if I get the fade.

Do some bounty missions award more rope XP? I'm still on $ level bounties, the most XP I've been awarded is 150-187, but last night I had a mission in the Elysian cave which awarded 412 role XP and another which involved chasing down a moving train, that awarded 350 role XP. They were back to back from Annesburg. I didn't purposely run down the timer, both were handed in with 2:30-3:00 left.

 

After those the missions went back to the standard camp/search area type missions that awarded 150-187 role XP.

 

Did I stumble upon a bug or are some of the more unique missions supposed to award more role XP? 

 

I'm not complaining, it was very welcome, I'm finding Bounty Hunter quite the grind as a solo player.
