I have noticed many people saying they are freelance bounty hunters in the jobs wanted classified section. I thought arrest was a faction privlige. Are they just Noobs that think they can kill people? If not, how do you become a freelance bounty hunter?
1. Yes, they are probably just newbies who don't know better.
2. Lance Hawke was a freelance bounty hunter. He wasn't tied to one government, faction, or group. He had certain connections, and he was capable of getting privileges in a variety of locations through a number of different factions. It is possible to do, although of course they will have to be part of a faction at the time of the actual arrest. That does not, however, mean that they are tied to that one particular faction and unable to claim the label of "freelance".
