    - Bounties are currently disabled by Rockstar due to exploits, preventing the Run Like the Wind achievement from being unlocked via legitimate means.
    - Modded lobbies exist where bounties can be placed (Currently locked), and Reputation Points (RP) and money can be granted. Take precautions to prevent others from modifying your profile and unlocking achievements illegitimately.


    UPDATE: 9-26-2016 - Comment From User : Idsi
    hiding in the apartment seems at the very least a bit glitchy? Didn't work for me either so seems like switching to a private session and roaming the streets is a safer bet.

    **"If someone places a bounty but they leave, The achievement will still Unlock "Thanks To Reabo

    Setting Bounties will be available after :
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    * " 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. "
    Thanks to Exxonic

    * " it seems you can only have a bounty placed on you if you have spoken to Lester as well, not just the ability to place them. For example, my friend is the same level as me (14-15 I'm not positive) although I was able to set bounties on other players, I couldn't set one on him. As soon as he went to Lester's house and watched the cutscene, I could place a bounty on him. " Thanks to Fatboyy

    * " 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. " Thanks to Pine Reaper

    * " Took exactly 24 in-game hours and 48 real-life minutes. You can check to see exactly what time the bounty got placed by looking at the time on the text you received. GL! "
    Thanks to Tgamesmaster

    EverStoned77With the rumors of GTA 6, a dying X360 & how long they have chosen to ignore both this achievement but also this gen (as seen by the 2 extra DLC's on the X1 version) I seriously doubt they'll do anything, no matter how many wants this. That being said, I'll naturally help any way I can 🙂

    el tebyI just got a reply from a very nice representative that said that if we give enough feedback as a community they’ll have to listen to us!! So I’m going to keep giving almost daily feedback and implore you guys to do so too. For some reason I feel more optimistic this time around!

    A Dreadful ShotI’ve been submitting feedback every week but I might have to join you on doing it daily. Really want to complete this game.

    Easy Achievement to unlock solo, just go into a solo / friends / crew only game and keep jacking cars until you get a text and onscreen message from an anonymous NPC saying something along the lines of "you're a dead man" or "You're going to end up on a slab", If you are in a solo game you have nothing to worry about. If in a friends or crew game just ask your friends / crew mates to not kill you or if you don't want to keep jacking cars just ask one of them above lvl 10 to put a bounty on your head.

    ** I didn't go into Los Santos Customs during my time on the run as I was doing missions for Soloman, and the achievement took just over 30 in game hours to unlock
    (Text message and Bounty prompt on screen at 02:06am, achievement unlocked following day at 08:27am)..

    ** This was after the 2nd Title update on the 5th Oct.

    BIG P3TE@VenomSlash771 - I just jacked a couple and then got an irate driver chase me, then 30 seconds or so later I got a txt saying i had a bounty on my head.. Most of the bounties I've had placed on me have been from jacking cars outside my apartment..
    Good luck & I hope you get it soon..

    tajbenderWorked fine with the first car I jacked. Just took some seconds for the SMS to arrive.

    Just a tip.
    If a random puts a bounty on you, drop what your doing and get up to the airfield in grand senora desert. Jump into chopper and fly for the day. If you must land use the skyscraper beside Iaa and fib buildings. Nice and safe there.

    At low levels this should work fine. I guess in time as people level up the attack chopper might become available then the above tip will be useless.
    Also, keep an eye on other players who might steal the fighter jet to nail you. Since it is harder online to steal jet it probably won't be an issue. Don't get timed out.

    terrett101Thanks for the tip, this kept me alive. Got dive-bombed by a cargobob towards the end, and managed to just fly away. In the dying minutes I was shot at by a jet, and parachuted to the street below as the achievement unlocked. Perfect timing.

    Kornfan2007The bounty stays between session. You can actually quit to single player and then load up a Solo game and keep the bounty. That is what I did when a random person put a bounty on me. I even shutdown my xbox for the night. When I got back online the next day, I still had the bounty
