    Seems the mod is doing ok, so I guess I will answer common questions.

    1, How do you earn the Gardeners respect to do bounties?
    -It's actually really simple and obvious, figure it out.
    2, Does this work with _____ mod?
    - it should. nothing has really been edited. All is new and standalone. That being said, mods that make you friends with the gunners are going to make the hunters friendly ALL the time. A few console commands that remove you from that faction AND makes you neutral to them will be required.
    3, Can you explain how every aspect and mechanic of the mod works?
    - No, what would be the fun of a mod that you know everything about? this is not a weapon, armor or faction mod. it's like this to be an experience mod. like a game should be.
    4, can I stalk you and post on your mod page and find you on discord? can I ask you a bunch of questions and tell you about my experiences?
    - yes, you can. just don't show up at my house. I don't know what this thing is where people think that a modder is somehow some untouchable person that has no time to deal with people. I don't do this for money. please tell me your epic story with my mod. that's the best payment I can get.

    there are many spoilers below this line. read at your own risk.

    i give my permission for this mod to be edited and re-uploaded by anyone as long as they follow the following conditions:

    -add the credits that I have posted. the music is covered under creative commons and requires credits. don't forget about me too.
    -do not add this to any console system unless you are positive that this mod will not irreversibly mess up there saves without the use of console commands.

    i not sure when i can keep working on this so i don't think it would be fair for me to hold on to this if there are others out there that can improve/fix issues.

    This mod was interesting (and fun) until some of the mercs followed me into a mission, got shot-up by the enemies (i hadn't even pulled my guns), and suddenly i got a message saying i wasn't trusted anymore and then they started hunting me. After that, i spent all my time with them walking past me (neutral) and then one of them stabs me in the back or whatever.

    It's an interesting mod but that's a bug i can do without. And, after that first incident, i saw more mercenaries coming at me than any other NPCs.....that just made the whole game about me avoiding the mercenaries and it got old fast.

    Plus, the idea that they know i could kill someone (in a secret area) and i'm suddenly on their watch-list? Nah, that's a little too far-fetched even in game lore. In the game, you can kill a member of any faction (outside the site of one of their buddies) and still remain neutral with them.

    This is a good idea but it needs a bit of tweaking.

      You should try this mod (: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/36020

      I use to play w/ Bounties For You, but I would get CTDs time to time after 3 hours of playing with it (Their squads increase each time you kill them, with more difficult hunters, which at that point they become nearly unkillable if you aren't using endgame weapons). The one I am linking you will feel a lot more flexible during missions, they will first approach to speak with you instead of ambushing you, not overpowered and have the same kits like Gunners. If you start to run away or fast travel somewhere else, that is when they become hostile since you didn't want to speak to them. You can adjust timers for when a new bounty gets posted on you, rather than random moments every 2-4 minutes w/ this mod xD.

      @ Wolf ,
      I had a look at that mod, and seems to great with bounty hunters mod, but the jail thing ? when you get knocked out or slimed , thats I think is the trigger to allow you to ask for and receive bounties from the gardener, so does that still happen with that mod installed ?

    This mod is very good but getting the quests are very tedious (should be straightforward).

    At level 36, my cousin was killed (he was stunned he was ever killed in FO4, so congratulations).

    This mod can be very tough for people level 50 or below, my cousin has to use the "Fat Man" for the first time to take out the bounty hunters (after all his companions were knocked out of action).

    Pros: Mod is very tough, adds weapons and makes players responsible for their actions.

    Cons: Tedious, makes players guess what the mod author wants them to do.

    Hope the mod author continues his/her good work.

      Dont do it for quests ...like I do ....given that the quest dont help you much warding off hunters and quest rewards are also very little to nothing to become interested ...
      Think Hunter/Hunted quest ....Hunt the hunters ..its the purpose (hidden) of the mod ...unless you want a masochist take on it .....
      P.s. your cousin never got killed in FO4 ??!! wow ..

      This game is not very hard because players can get the Overseer's Guardian in Day 2 or 3 (Vault 81 daytime general goods merchant Alexis Combes).

      Once you get the weapon, all vanilla game enemies are very easy to defeat.

    Very good mod. well made, nice concept, and cool hunters. I like it. But, there is some problems.


    1. Too strong hunters for low lv player

    It's almost impossible to win against hunters at low lv. no matter you use what weapon, who you with, you can't win. I swear.
    so i recommend do not talk with gardner until you reach enough lv. hunters dont chase you until that event.


    2. Impossible to react

    ESPECIALLY AFTER FAST TRAVEL. fast travel to somewhere, bounty hunters appear right behind you, and dead. one - katana, dead.
    No time to use jet, even no time to use my weapon.


    3. (I'm not sure but...) In DLC area, you can attack by hunters in village.

    I died 3 times when i was talking to dima, inside the acardia. and 5 times in far harbor. so you should use VATS in village before talk with someone.

      1 If they're too strong, use the holo tape to adjust their health or what not

      2 Yes , sometimes they will just show up, because from what I understand, they use keyword , but I dont understand about, but basically I get or think its acts like a door for them , sooo knowing they're coming, you could reload to a prior save and do things differently , also things mods go as little differently next time ..

      3 Yes, they will show up in dlc area, in testing this when it was new, the author didn't own any of the dlc when creating this mod so wasn't sure if they'd show up there m, but yes they do ..
      He wanted to make them challenging for the players, not soft little bullet sponges so have a look in the holo tape to see , and also try t rolling back to a save knowing they're coming before speaking to dima, wait for them somewhere away like an ambush...
      Also I play on hard mode, if your finding them too hard switch down to adept or easy mode to make killing them easier for you, then when done switch back to what you were on before ..

      Thx for nice answer. Of course I can kill hunters very easily now, cause my lv is 80. but hunters kill me very easily too :>
      But I REALLY like that. I use this mod with WOTC and Modern Firearms, and my commonwealth is whole mess. Hunters should kill another enemies - For example BOS, Raillord, Raiders... etc - before meet me. :> Its little annoying in village, but it makes me feel like more realistic about hunters. VERY NICE MOD.

      Take intimidation perk ., use syringer rifle , the synth sells syringer ammo , use korax changes mod for quick trade ability ..
      Its prfectly doable ..even in survival ...after level 20+ ..why 20..coz you need charisma 10 for intimidation ....a sprinter armor can help too..
      Apply intimidation on the synth in gardener while at higher level and after having black widow perk (female playthrough) ...see what happens ..????????
      p.s. craft a shock collar beforehand..

      @ Brat88 they're intimidation immune , they cant be intimidated ...
      Also read the notes people on any of the ones you have killed they were made as little hints on how to deal with them n such like notes you might find that mention gear they're wearing or r guns n such type ...

      Another unrealistic feature ...intimidation immunity...given fallout 4 universe ...
      But what I meant ...intimidation perk makes them HESITANT attacking player and it works ...giving more time to react for ..like throwing grenades n such ...p.s.
      I frequently observed the hunters eating a missile and standing still ...LOL....missile sponge !!

      Unfortunately and quite possibly, you may have hit the end , with these bounties, when the mod author released this, he did say that rank or tier 3 did not get far if anywhere at all , as he didnt have much time anymore to work on the mod and so gave or said anyone was quite free to take from but still give credit ...
      The above might be true or could something else, I've not got to that stage yet , sry..

      I can do tier 1 and tier 2 but cant do tier 3 cause im preoccupied but idk what does that means maybe cause i have companions with me. I think there is no ever yet cause ive done maybe 3x tier 2 and not much of tier 1. Also i have bough some parts for power armor for example power armor wight distribution perk but i dont know how to use this or others.

      Its not do with having a companion with you, I've been able to tier 1 bounties with a companion, but as I've said I've not struck " occupied" response as I've not got to that yet , so can't advise about that ..
      As for the bit about power armor I don't fully understand about , you bought power armor parts off him because he's a vender, but the bit about power armor distribution perk ?
      The only perk that has anything to do with fo4 in pain train afaik, so it sounds like its coming from something else ?
      Are you using any perk adding mods ?

    Hello … I really enjoy this mod. The concept and the execution. I like how the B.Hunters pursue, technique, etc. I like the 'letters, etc. The issue is (1) They have only been able to stun me ONCE. Then my companion killed them. (2) I think I am too strong for them. They can't sneak up on me too well. I am playing with the 'WestTek' Goggles so I can see enemies a mile away.
    I might suggest that when hitting a certain level or <?> that the B.Hunters gain the use of some 'Stealthboys' or similar. Some may already have these but I am just throwing that out as a suggestion to really buff-up.
    Really enjoying the mod though. It really adds a great dimension to the game.

      Hello Bchick
      The thing with their attacks, depends on how you fought them last time will be how they fight you next time , so if the last time, you used cryo grenades and bullets, next time they come you might see them use some sort of cryo move on you,
      As for stealth much the same thing, they will have stealth so no need for this mod adjust and give it to them, pretty much like I explained , if the last time you mostly used stealth where you went invisible for a short time, they too will use that next time, and when they do look , they will disarm you doing it , fun times =D
      All this is as far as I know, the way they attack next time could all be different too ...
      What mods are playing on ? also if you think your to op for them, use the holo tape to make them stronger for your game play ?

      ...
      This has been asked several times, but anyway, you have to earn his respect , and thats by kinda letting them get to to you leave you alive by having them throw so sort of slow slime at you and they take a portion of your caps , then go back to him and he might say something like " hmmm , look your not one us , or you can take care of yourself" type speech
