What do I do if my bounty is too high in RDR2?
Just head on into the building, talk to the clerk, and select the option to pay off your bounties. After your payment is posted, you're a free man. Sure, it costs a bit of cash, but many would argue it's a better option than giving yourself up to the authorities.

- Gene "Beau" Finley: $125.

You'll receive certain benefits if you earn honor, but if you start sliding down the scale you'll lose them. The sliding scale begins at the lowest honor ranking of -8, and extends all the way to the highest honor ranking of +8.
Unlike Redemption, there is a set number of bounties, not an infinite amount of randomly generated bounties, and some must be brought in alive if required, or the mission is failed.
To do this, you need to initiate a conversation with the pursuing lawman like you would with any other character, by pressing the left trigger to target them. You should then get a button prompt that lets you surrender.
The largest reward ever paid was a cool $30 million. The bounty was given to one person who provided information on Uday and Qusay Hussein, the sons of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who were killed in 2003 after a firefight with U.S. forces.
Despite the high stakes for a paycheck, bounty hunters usually have an extremely high success rate. An experienced bounty hunter can typically make between $50,000 and $80,000 per year.
By completing a Legendary Bounty up to 30 minutes long you'll earn up to $675 for each playthrough.
Your only options for clearing a bounty are either paying it off, or surrender and go to jail. The latter is only possible when your wanted level is low, so if you've been shooting up some law enforcement you will likely be shot dead if you surrender.
Should you pay off bounties in rdr2? More Lawmen and Bounty hunters will appear on roads and around the area, and if any of them recognise you, they'll try to arrest or kill you on the spot. That means your best bet, once you have a Bounty, is to try and pay it off as soon as possible.
