Many players are now deep into their Western adventures after Red Dead Redemption II was released on Friday.

Red Dead Redemption II - shooting down hopes of a spring releaseWhy Im boycotting Red Dead Redemption II – Readers Feature

The game lets people decide their own journey for outlaw Arthur Morgan, but youre always likely to face a few difficulties that could lead to you getting a bounty on your head.

Bountys are a prominent part of the game and happen when you build up a high enough Wanted Level in a certain location.

If the bounty isnt paid promptly then it can lead to bounty hunters and lawmen tracking you down when you are in the area that has the bounty.

You Wanted Level can increase depending on how many bad deeds you carry out in front of witnesses, and this can lead to higher bounties and the danger of being shot.

How to get rid of a bounty



To get rid of a bounty you will need to go to a train station or post office and interact with the clerk that is there.

You will then have the option to pay off your bounty which will then remove it.

You dont have to be in the specific area that you had picked up the bounty, it is possible to pay them off from any location.

Paying off the bounty seems to be the only way you can currently get it removed and it might be better to pay it off sooner rather than later if you plan to go back to the area where the bounty is from.
