    For this achievement you will need to survive 24 hours ( game time ) with a bounty on your head.

    Here's a easy way to earn this, if your not playing with your friends and your in an online game with a bunch of people try to find someone and keep killing them and annoying them do whatever you can do to piss them off to the point where they put a bounty on you. You will know you have a bounty cause it will pop up on your screen telling you how much bounty was set on you.

    Once and as soon as the bounty is placed on you LEAVE THE GAME ASAP BEFORE YOU GET KILLED, quit the game and load up a SOLO game session online. While in solo no one can kill you & the bounty Carry's over into the solo. From there wait it out .... The 24 hours ( Game Time ) Hope this was useful.

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL!! Message For HELP!

    Budd DwyerAll i did was drive around for 48 minutes in solo after my friend put a bounty on my head and it worked like a charm.

    TheFlaminBeanJust to confirm:
    1) This solution still works as of 2020
    2) You can disconnect your controller to save battery (I wasn't sure, as there's a big black screen). Just make sure you're in a quiet place where you won't get run over or anything, and also that you reconnect at least every 15 minutes so you don't get kicked for idling.

    Hi there

    I followed the guide above, and it didn't seem to work - not sure if it's been in a patch since the last solution, but I'm fairly certain that time in the apartment no longer counts towards the bounty timer:

    I got an AI bounty on a populated server, ran for my life for about 20 minutes with several close shaves (Turns out if you get run over by a jet, you 'die' as oppose to 'get killed by...' so that doesn't count as losing your bounty), and eventually made it back to my apartment where I let it idle for about 3 hours irl. Achievement didn't pop, so I left if to idle for another few irl hours. Still nothing, so I switched to an invite only lobby, and it popped after 1 and a half minutes.

    To get to the invite only lobby, do: Start menue -> single player -> Online -> Join GTA online (Should give you some options after this) -> Start invite only session, and then let it idle OUTSIDE OF YOUR APARTMENT AND GARAGE

    Hope this helps smile

    Super simple achievement. If you can’t get a friend to put a bounty on you then just enter a solo session (so other real players cannot kill you) and start stealing random cars on the road that are being driven by an NPC (the civilians in game). You’ll piss off one NPC enough that they’ll send you a text message from “Unknown” stating the words to the effect of “You’ve fucked with the wrong person”. Then you’ll get a notification that “Unknown” has placed a bounty on you.

    Simply drive around or kill random civilians whatever you like. Within 48 minutes real life time you’ll get the achievement as 24 hour game time = 48 mins in real.

    Please note that if you are killed by an NPC your bounty will NOT reset. The only time it will be reset is if another real player kills you. Once you receive the achievement, you’ll also receive the bounty for “surviving”. It will be anywhere in the amount of 1-10k.
