What Are Objective Bounties in League of Legends?
Matches in League of Legends can go back and forth and with the arrival of the 2022 pre-season, Riot Games is adding yet another way to claw your way back into a win from a losing situation. Objective Bounties in League of Legends become available once a team is too far behind its opponent and are highlighted on the mini-map. Completing the bounties marked on the map as a losing side will award every member of the team with gold. It is a comeback mechanic that will attempt to prevent matches that feel like a steamroll. Here is everything you need to know about Objective Bounties in League of Legends.
How do Objective Bounties work in League of Legends?
Objective Bounties in League of Legends will be highlighted only when you are on the losing side by a large margin. If you meet the in-game requirements to be offered an Objective Bounty, it will show up in the mini-map for both teams. These bounties can be completed by the losing side and once completed, every team member will get part of the bounty gold.
The bounties will vary depending on four factors which include:
These bounties can continue to appear and if a team continues to fall behind despite getting the gold offered by Objective Bounties, the rewards from these bounties can increase by up to 60%.
How much gold can you earn from objective bounties in League of Legends?
Here is the base amount of gold that you can get from each bounty:
Baron/Elder Dragon takedowns: 500 gold
Dragon/Rift Herald takedowns: 500 gold
Outer turret takedowns: 250 gold
Inner turret takedowns: 400 gold
Base turret takedowns: 400 gold
Objective Bounties have a 15 second warning period when coming online and a 15 second lingering duration when falling off. This time can be extended if the losing team remains in combat with an active Objective Bounty.
Objective bounties are not currently available in League of Legends and they will be added as part of patch 11.23 which is scheduled to drop on 17th November, 2021.
