What is Bounty?
Earn The Most Points By Killing Enemies
Bounty Mode will put you in a team of 3, playing against another team of 3. Your objective is to earn the most stars as a team within the time limit to win the game mode!
Earn Stars For Killing Enemies
Stars are earned by killing enemy players without dying. You become a more valuable target the more stars you are able to earn!
You Become Most Wanted At 7 Stars
7 stars is the maximum number of stars a player can hold. You then become the most wanted! This may make you the primary target for enemies since killing you will award the enemy team with a lot of stars!
Time Limit Is At 2:30
The Bounty mode will have a time limit of 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Here are the things you need to remember in that time limit in order to increase your chances of winning!
Focus On Damage, Then Survivability
You will need to play a bit aggressively at the start in order for you to rack up the points to get a good lead. However, you will need to switch your priority to surviving since you will have a high bounty on your head!

Tips For Playing Bounty
Here are some things that you need to remember to help you win in Bounty Mode!
Select Brawlers Appropriate For The Map
Bounty Mode is playable on many different maps in the game. It is best to familiarize yourself with the map in practice mode, and take note of its key features. This will help you select a brawler best suited for the map!Check Out The All Brawler List
Start The Game Aggressively
When the match starts, play aggressively to rack up the amount of Stars you have before the enemy can collect more! This will give you an advantage since if you have more stars in the late game, the enemy may not be able to catch up!
Remember To Play Aggressively Responsibly
However, playing aggressively does not mean "go in, guns blazing". Make sure that you play aggressively smart! Pick off stray targets, back off when in low health, don't chase targets, and always fight with backup!
Adjust Your Strategy At The 1-Minute Mark
Depending on the score at the 1-minute mark, make sure to adjust your strategy to increase your chances of winning!
Play Defensively When Winning
When you are winning, make sure to play defensively and back off when enemies rush you! This is to prevent them from catching up to your score!
Get More Aggressive When Losing
When you are down by some points, start getting more aggressive to catch up with the enemy! Support teammates in fights, target opponents with lots of stars, and push forward to get more points!
Play Safely If You Have A High Bounty
You will be a high priority target the more stars you have on your head! When you already have a high bounty, switch up your playstyle to a more safe playstyle. This will keep you away from aggressive enemies hunting you down!
Move With Your Team
When playing it safe, it would be best to move with your team. They will provide you with the necessary cover should an enemy get too close!
Strafe During Encounters
Make sure to strafe around while shooting at enemies. Strafing in random directions will make you a harder enemy to pin down, and can make the enemy waste their bullets! You will have a good opportunity to strike back while they reload!
Bounty Event Maps List
Canal Grande Features & Tips
Canal Grande has huge bodies of water dividing its center. It may be difficult to cross to the other side, but certain Brawlers can bypass this by using their super. These Brawlers include Darryl and Bull.
Crystal Clearing Features & Tips
Crystal Clearing has tons of open space where you can target other players. Long range Brawlers like Colt and Piper will excel in this area since they will have lots of targets to snipe!
Hideout Features & Tips
Open spaces are present at the sides of the map while the middle area has some obstacles like walls and grass. If you are playing long range Brawlers, stick to the side. Middle Brawlers have better opportunities in the middle of the map.
Outlaw Camp Features & Tips
Outlaw Camp is full of grass. Many players may try to hide and ambush you within the grass. This is why it is recommended to choose a tanky Brawler that can dish out tons of damage in close range!
Shooting Star Features & Tips
Shooting Star is a long range Brawler's dream come true! Minimal obstacles will give you lots of room and space to shoot down targets out in the open!
Snake Prairie Features & Tips
Snake Prairie is almost entirely covered in grass! Other than close range Brawlers, AoE damage like Barley or Spike, and a Bo with Star Power will be very useful to spot and kill enemies in this map!
Stone Fort Features & Tips
Stone Fort may force you to play on the sides of the map due to the heavily fortified center of the map. Make sure to use mid to long range Brawlers to make your shots connect at further away targets without putting yourself in danger!
Temple Ruins Features & Tips
Utilize the large patches of grass at the sides of the map to ambush and kill enemies! When opponents give chase, dive back into the grass and make them lose your trail!
