Grand Theft Auto V Achievements

Run Like The Wind

GTA Online: Survive for a day with a Bounty on your head. 

Before you can attempt this achievement, you must be a Rank 10. Now Lester will give you a call, so head over to his house for a short cutscene where he informs you about Bounties. Load up a Private Lobby with a friend who is also a Rank 10 and have each player call Lester. There will be an option to "Place a Bounty" on a player in the lobby for a minimum of $2,000. Place a bounty on each other and simply wait for 24 in-game hours (45 minutes real-time) to pass.

Be sure NOT to kill each other, or it will void the achievement; however, if an NPC kills you, it does not void the time. Furthermore, if you decide to perform any activity within the world, the timer will pause; so make sure both of you just stand still until time has elapsed.

Take note that you can get kicked for inactivity if you are standing idled for too long! To avoid getting kicked out of the lobby and ruining your progress towards the achievement, it is recommended to either cruise around the city in a car or hang out in your apartment - if you have one - until the achievement unlocks.

Alternatively, you can try to get this achievement solo if you do not have anyone to place a bounty on you. Often times, when you hijack enough vehicles during your online session, the NPC you hijacked will text you with a threatening message informing you that they are going to get back at you. Shortly after, Lester will call you and let you know that the NPC has placed a bounty on you. If this happens, follow the method above in order to pass 24 in-game hours.

This could be incredibly fun, buy an apartment, hide out for the night, always on the run. Think of the possibilities! :')

Get a few friends to follow you around in helicopters, get the achievement, switch, repeat. I'm assuming this will be an easy way of getting this achievement.
A day in GTA is usually 24-48 minutes. It is one minute for every hour in San Andreas and two minutes for every hour in GTA4.

I have a crew set up on Rockstar Social Club. Search for my gamer-tag:
The Cipriani
Or the name of the crew:

looking to get a really great crew together, everyone starts as muscle and gets promoted accordingly, subject to time online, money earned, general good games and dedication to the crew.
Once promoted to representative you can recruit people yourself, however, you also have to vouch for your recruits and if they mess around it wont look good on you. do well at it wont take long to become a lieutenant, having command over all ranks below you !

See you online guys !

Setting Bounties will be available after :
Becoming Level 10 - There you will get a call from Lester and get a *L* on your map.
After you had the cutscene you can call Lester to put a bounty on someones Head

Get a friend to put a bounty on your head, Go into your House and stay there for a Full ingame Day.

It took a little longer for me to unlock so i walked outside of my house and went back in right away and the achievement popped.

* " If you do this in a friends or crew only game, there would be no need to hide. I even got shot by the police while robbing stores and i still got the achievement. "

* " It did take longer than the 24 hours as i kept going into Los Santos Customs. So Any time i spent NOT on the street was added on. "

Ya, I came here to post the same solution when I found it earlier this morning.

And to reiterate, its super easy to get; play on an invite only game and have your friend bounty you. There is literally zero chance (unless your friend is a jack ass) of failing.

Another note I found that needs to be said again and again, death by police or other NPCs DOES NOT impact your chance of unlocking the achievement. So get the bounty and continue as normal, don't just waste your time sitting around doing nothing

Comment #32 by chelseaman99

Another easy way of getting this - when you get a bounty set on you, just hide in your apartment/garage.Simple.

This can be done in a private game.
I just got it.
I stole a car off of a pedestrian and a few seconds later I received a text saying "you just jacked my car. I'm going to have you smoked".
A few seconds after that I got another text saying "watch out, someone has put a $5000 bounty on you".
So I hid out in my apartment for 24 hours, and the achievement just popped.

Comment #36 by ciresiuol
Sunday, October 06, 2013 @ 02:16:52 PM

If you're playing in a normal online lobby and someone puts a bounty on you, just switch to single player, then switch to a private game (crew, friends, or invite only)... Then just run around robbing stores or whatever... Just keep in mind, every time you switch lobbies or die from a NPC, it resets the bounty timer and you have to wait another 24 hours in game (72 minutes, btw... It's 3 seconds per minute in 5)...

Comment #37 by Shadowrak
Monday, October 07, 2013 @ 06:21:17 PM

Do not try to do this in a public game. I hid on the islands in the north related to the infinity killer and fought off people trying to swim to kill me for '20 hours' then I was vote booted. This is a very common story recounted on the internet. You have been warned.

Comment #38 by aFERALPLATYPUS
Monday, October 07, 2013 @ 06:47:57 PM

Two of my friends and me put a bounty on each others head, we got a helicopter flew to the top of Mt Chiliad and just waited for 48 minutes (1 in-game hour)and if someone tried to climb the mountain we either sniped them or just flew away. Then at 48 minutes all three of us got the achievement, easy!

Comment #39 by creaper210
Tuesday, October 08, 2013 @ 07:27:31 AM

@38 It still counts even if you join another free roam session...
You still have your bounty, you still get the money at the end, and you still get the achievement.

One easy way to do this - hide somewhere. When you see someone coming to you, start a job, then quit back out and it will respawn you wherever the job was supposed to start. Rinse and repeat. It's kind of cheap, but it makes this achievement easy, plus it will annoy all those little fuckers trying to kill you just for $1k.

How do you become a bounty ? Without anyone putting it on you via Lester ?

Comment #41 by OrangesofDeath
Monday, October 14, 2013 @ 10:02:45 PM


An NPC can put it on you if you steal their vehicle. I'm in a Private Session (Invite Only) by myself. I just stole a bunch of vehicles waiting for one of the owners to put a bounty on my head. Someone did. A $9,000 bounty. Now I just need to wait 48 minutes to get the achievement.

Comment #42 by TheRandomDon
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 @ 01:52:40 AM

This one is very easy. All you do is get a bounty on your head and quit the session. Go into a solo session and you'll still have the bounty on you. Play and you'll get the achievement after awhile.

Just play solo session, and steal peoples cars while theyre still in them. some NPCs will put a small bounty on you. then just go a day (48 real time minutes) and you'll get it. You can die by suicide and the police and the bounty doesnt go away.

Just got this. Had a bounty put on my head for stealing a car. I ran to the hills but was tracked down by two other players in choppers. Killed them, stole the chopper and flew around for the last 15mins. People were still trying to track me down.

I have sat in my apartment now 3 different nights, with the same bounty on my head for well over 2 hours (real life time) each time. No achievment...can anyone offer me some legitimate advice? I'd really like to get this bullshit over with. I'm sick of afking in my apartment.

Comment #74 by o KRoNiiKzZ o
Sunday, September 07, 2014 @ 11:48:24 AM

Almost certain the apartment trick doesn't work. I did however get another bounty on my head, I called in a helo and escaped to the very northern part of the map. I went to the maps ceiling, taped my RT down and waited. Achievement popped about an hour in.

- I REPEAT, do not waste your time in your apartment with a bounty.

Really losing my cool with this achievement. I can confirm for the idiot up there ^ that said the strip joint is safe that it most certainly is NOT! I still got killed and the bounty taken off me. Apartment doesn't do anything, sat in there for an hour ( real time ) and nothing popped! Just gonna try and do the closed session idea and see how that pans out as I'm losing my patience with this stupid achievement!

This achievement has indeed been discontinued - it is no longer possible to place a bounty on another player (in the 360 version).

The best solution is likely to leave feedback for the developers, since they're more likely to prioritize features that many gamers are asking for.
