Maude assigned you bounty hunting tasks in GTA V and she is back in GTA Online! The same rules apply, find the bounty target and then it's up to you how you deal with them. As with many things in GTA Online, it can be a bit confusing on how to get this job. We're going to show you how to get Maude's missions, explain what they are and we show you how to complete them.

How To Get Maude's Missions
Once you've set yourself up in Los Santos and gotten past the first three tutorial missions, you will randomly get a text from Maude. This is the sign that you can start to accept her missions as she sends them to you.
What Are Maude’s Missions
Maude's missions are the same as the ones you have to complete in the main GTA V game. They are bounty hunts. You need to track down the target, you can kill them or bring them back in one piece for a bigger reward.
How To Complete Maude’s Missions
When Maude has a target for you to find, she will email you a small profile on them. Open up the email and it will contain a mugshot of the target. Scroll down to the bottom of the email then exit your phone. Open your pause menu and click on your map. If you look around, you should find a marker has appeared that indicates the general location of the target.
Head to the target area and once you are there, you will need to search it. We recommend turning your volume up and radio in the car off (if you are driving). This is because you need to listen out for the sound of bells. The sound will tell you when you are close to the target and where they are if you listen careful enough. The sound will get louder as you get closer to the target.
When the target is in view, an arrow will appear above their head. Now, there are two ways you can go about getting a target. You can kill them straight away but your payment will be far less for this. To get the best payment for a bounty target, you need to get them to surrender so you can take them to Maude. We found that the best way to do this is to sneak up behind them and hit them with a Wrench. They may surrender after a single hit, if they don't, a second usually does the trick.
When they surrender they will follow you back to your vehicle. Then, all you have to do is drive them back to Maude's house in Sandy Shores to get the reward. After completing one bounty target, you will need to wait a few in-game hours before you get another.
There are only a handful of Maude missions. When you complete your final one, you will be rewarded with a Stone Hatchet after Maude tells you the location of a target's "treasure".
Bounty hunting is just one of the jobs you can take on in GTA Online. If you're low on funds then check out our guide on how to make money this week.
