The Bounty Hunter General Thread

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.

 

Bounties have differing "levels" denoted by the Dollar signs on the Poster, it sounds like you got a "$$" or a "$$$" Bounty. These are harder and give better rewards. Unless they are working on a behind the scenes fix and the compensation is increased Bounty Role EXP for say a week.

On the poster they were both $ level bounties, they happened back to back from the same bounty board in Annesburg. I did another 3 bounties, from Van Horn, afterwards before logging off for the night and all 3 awarded either 150xp or 187xp.

 

I think it may have been a bug, but just wondered if anyone else had received unusually high XP awards from $ bounties.

Not sure then.

I'm a lvl 7 Bounty Hunter and the other two roles are at 20. This grind is brutal.

 

^ I saw that poster in Valentine but I couldn't take it... it would seem to select it but nothing would happen...

Just tried the legendary bounty and you load up into a mission with two lives and with a small cutscene!

 

I left it since i wanted to wait until i got someone to do it with, but now i cant find the poster to start it again..

Just did the legendary bounty. It appears these missions are the same as the regular bounty hunting missions, just with extra flash by having a cutscene at the start and an unique character model. Kinda disappointing imo.

How did you start this? When chosing the poster I just exited from the bounty board. Do you have to find the actual target for it to start?

 

Edit: Ah, actually clicked on the video. Great another bloody bug by R*.

If the legendary bounty doesn't start for you, try joining a new session. This worked for me.

Yes. I changed session and then it started. One nice thing with this is that if you die it's just like any ordinary mission you can restart the mission or restart from the latest checkpoint. Might be good if you want to farm loot, xp, etc.

My complaints for the legendary bounty is that she would stay on top of the tower and there was no way i could carry her down the ladder,the only way to drop her off the top and kill her, and i got only 25 dollars for the mission.I mean its a weekly f*cking mission just give us at least 100

Anyone else have the problem where the pamphlets for the other skills have a ✔-symbol next to it, but the Gun Spinning skill doesn't get the option to be "Read"?
 
I can't figure out if it's intentional or not - also, I think my character is doing a more advanced spin when I double-tap L1, so it seems like I've acquired that skill anyway (?).

I haven't tested how long but it definitely retains the inventory over into the next irl day.

I really liked it. Played solo so I just picked all the NPC's off with my Springfield before grabbing the target.

 

I also liked that we can replay the mission at a higher difficulty after a cool down period. I've only replayed it once so far, role XP reward was reduced for the replay, but still decent.

 

I don't know how many times we'll be able to replay the mission, but I doubt it will be limitless.

Dont think you need to read any of them. I needed to reload the game to get some to work (this was before knowing about skill pages I could read) but you get the gun spins right away at least. 

 

I also did the legendary bounty. Was alot of fun. Did the two star one too. I lost a life in that one as I was one shot by a rolling block rifle. In the first mission she was in the two store house. In the second she was outside but tried to escape in the mine. She actually tried to squeeze through in the back(its normally a dead end because of a cave in) when I came for her. 😂

Got the legendary to work. Finished it with a friend, easier than most bounties.

 

Got a whopping 17 dollars from it.  :s

Yeah I found that too. First and second play throughs were the same, as in the target was in the same place, did the same thing etc.

 

Third time threw me, she was in a different area and all NPC's were far more aggressive too.

 

I liked it though, kept me on my toes.

Yea they definitely bump up in aggression and difficulty as the stars go up.

 

Stars 1 and 2 were pretty comfortable, just gotta watch for snipers. At 3 stars though they pushed me when I had whatsherface tied up and I got chased by them delivering her to jail.

I've had to log off for a while now, do we keep getting the option to replay past the 3rd play through?

 

I'm not planning on farming the mission, but I've done it solo all 3 times so far and I'd like to get chance to have a run through with a posse later if possible.

It should go up to 5 stars as there is an award for it. Beyond that though it'll be interesting to see if we can farm it, I imagine we'll be able to join posses and do it but endlessly doing the 5 star poster seems like it'd be pretty good exp//$.

Nice one.

 

I'm a little torn. On one hand I would like to play it with a group but on the other I kind of want to see how hard 5* is solo.

I wish they had optional matchmaking for this stuff, but I can say that for a lot of this update. Sucks that we can't find groups for this stuff without joining random posses and hoping they're doing the same stuff.

It would make for a better, easier and more varied experience. I've been trying to get a posse together today for regular BH missions, literally had one player join my posse all day and frankly, I wish they hadn't. First bounty and they threw dynamite at them before stowing them and sprinting to the drop off.

Yea that's the pub posse experience lmao.

 

I've did a ton of it the past week leveling BH/Trader, it's a mixed bag for sure but it'd still be nice.
