How to unlock the Wanted: Alive Or Alive achievement

    As Trevor you'll eventually meet a woman named Maude as a Strangers & Freaks mission, shown as a question mark, ?, on the map. She wants you to bring her escaped convicts, for cash. She sends you regular emails with photos and last known locations.

    The first one, Ralph Ostrowski, is down in the quarry where the big quarry truck is. DO NOT kill him, simply chase him in a car, stop him by shooting his tyres or trashing his car. I was lucky enough for him to get stuck behind a U section of barrier. Drag him out of the car, a cutscene starts, he surrenders and gets in your car as a passenger, take him back to Maude, the achievement will pop!

    WARNING: If you use guns too much you can end up getting a wanted level, this will make it harder, try to shoot his tyres when you're still in the quarry area, or use a weapon with suppressor that you can shoot out of a car, like the pistol.

    The location of Ralph is in the image below, courtesy of

    EskimosoundI've completed these missions years ago.
    I've come back to the game...
    Is there any way of the starting these missions through the game menus or do I have to start a brand new game...
    I'm so close to completion I don't want to have to restart if I don't have to.. anyone know?

    Dragonbreath825After completing the mission “Bury the Hatchet” I went to the location without having the email still and found him there just like normal

    oHIGHxINxAxBOXo"TonyTwoSteak" mentioned going to the quarry in order to trigger the event, this worked perfectly for me. I found the bounty jumper and brought him back for the achievement.

    KiwiBananaVIPooThe Strangers and Freaks marker that unlocks the bail bond contracts is located to the east of the Alamo Sea, and should be available after completing Nervous Ron.

    Mario04253101not sure if anyone else has mentioned this but you dont have to go down to him. shoot out 2 of his tires from a ridge above him and he’ll start running away. then just go up to him and he’ll surrender. no cops involved. takes like 2 minutes

    CuddIe BunnyThis glitched for me too, but I'm starting to realize it happens when I quick resume. Definitely won't be quick resuming when i do the collection of spaceship parts and such
