Trevor has many hobbies and favorite past times, and most of them include making money through different kinds of jobs. GTA V Maude Missions is one of his hobbies of Trevor which provides for not so much killing but still a lot of his classic shenanigans, and chaotic traits are still there.

Key Highlights

  • GTA V’s  Maude is one of a kind and an interesting person with some really interesting offers for the player in both story and online versions.
  • Maude can really help you out of a bind by rewarding you with some easy cash in both for Trevor, and online goes up to the worth of multi-million dollars.
  • Maude’s missions are all cunningly created, with each one being more unique and challenging than the previous. Unlike GTA V’s prequels, this game strives to be less repetitive with its missions hence you will receive a good amount of gameplay with a very generous in-game reward.
  • GTA Online Maude Missions or bail bond missions are quite rewarding in the game itself. However, achieving the special reward will lead you to achieve something special in another Rockstar-owned Intellectual property as well.

GTA V Maude Missions or otherwise known as Bail Bonds missions, are bounty-hunting side missions. Maude is a point of interest character, These characters are marked on the world map with a question mark indicator which indicates that there is some unexplored content there to be found. This is also the reason why many players are having trouble finding the GTA V Maude mission’s locations.

Maude is a shut-in of a character and, quite surprisingly or not so surprisingly, a data-gathering specialist. She has a long-running history with Trevor already, to which there isn’t any special explanation as Trevor has just worked for her before, and you can easily guess that from their not-so-obscure conversations.

Even though she is a shut-in, she is still a real patriot of justice which is the whole motivation of her complete character.

She intends to be that justice, that can’t be delivered by government officials and take the matter into her own hands or at the very least hire someone, for example, Trevor as her hands.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a wacky hungry-for-justice character in Los Santos if you remember a certain illegal immigrants deporter but still seeing characters like this, again and again, is amusing at the very least.

How to Unlock Maude Missions

Maude Missions can’t be unlocked just right off the bat. To unlock her missions, You’ll have to sit through a series of the first three tutorial missions after settling into Los Santos. After doing that online or just while playing as Trevor in story mode you will receive a message from a bounty hunter for hire by Maude. The statement goes as:

Hello, stranger! Can I interest you in some bounty hunting? We’re in no short supply of those needing to bring into the law’s bosom. Just need to find them or kill them if needs be?

– Maude’s email

Many players report Maude mission not appearing while it’s not the case for the offline version, but it does happen in GTA Online where Maude missions don’t activate at all. If that’s the scenario you are stuck in there is no need to worry as it’s a simple fix.

  • Redditors have found a fix where you can stand in front of Maude’s trailer to activate the texts. Just go park in front of her trailer for a few minutes, and it should activate the text email, and you will receive it.
  • Another fix for this issue is to resign as a CEO or associate, which is reported to be a kind of hard reset in-game, and players have reported receiving the Maude bounty emails just as they resign from being a CEO.

How To Find Maude

Anyways GTA v Maude missions location is not really hidden and is just marked on the map that you can locate quickly. GTA V Maude Missions map location isn’t on a marked or named territory so you’ll have to track the location using the directions given here, the trailer is located in Blain County, on an unnamed dirt road off East Joshua Road in Grapeseed.

Maude Missions In GTA V

Maude is one oddball of a character in GTA V story mode and is not far off the vibe of Trevor himself. It’s somewhat crazy the usual character that one starts to like just because of their unusual personality of them. Like described before all you need to do is go to Maude’s trailer, and a cut scene should start where she makes you an employee of hers to grab some bounties for her.

The bounties Maude gives you are dead or alive, so there aren’t any restrictions, and you can do the deed as you see fit. But there is only a penalty in price if you think about doing it the easy way by just killing the target. So as to receive that complete $10,000 bounty you will need to capture and escort that bounty to Maude to get that full price.

Reprobate 1: Ralph Ostrowski

Ralph Otrowski, the first target

GTA V Maude Missions’ first guy on the list is found in the middle of the Quarry in the Device Quartz which is located in Senora Way, to the east of Sandy Shores and southeast of the Grand Senora Desert.

This guy will be standing out there alone with two cars which he will use as getaways if he detects even a bit of danger or hostile movement approaching him. So to avoid a chase all you need is to use a sniper rifle from far away. And shoot him in the leg to hinder him.

This will allow you to apprehend him quite easily but this adds the risk of the target dying so do it at your own discretion. You can also use a warning shot by taking out the tires of both cars and approaching him by making him immobile through any transport and holding him at gunpoint to make him surrender.

After capturing him you will need to escort him to Maude but if cops are tailing you you won’t be able to do so. And a star will no doubt stick to your name if you fire a gun. So be on the lookout for any cop on the map.

Reprobate 2: Larry Tupper

The second wanted man can be found hiding at the farm in the desert southwest of Sandy Shores. The guy named Larry Tupper is hiding inside a barn, but while the mission is active, he can be seen standing near two of his friends with a car too. The friends he has with him are of no importance, so they can be just killed off.

Killing his friends will alarm him and make him run away. The better move here is to make the cars incapable of functioning properly by taking out the tires and then proceeding to finish off the lackeys and apprehending the guy at gunpoint.

Even if you make the character unable to properly get away, he will still try, so make sure you have proper necessary precautions. Shoot Larry’s leg if you feel the need to do so. But most of all having a better way of transport for yourself, preferably a helicopter, should suffice. This will give you an edge over them by having a faster means of transport.

After apprehending him deliver him to Maude as well for a full bounty or if you think it’s a hassle just go ahead and kill him if you can accept the penalty in the original payment.

Reprobate 3: Glenn Scoville

Glenn, the third target

Unlike all the other characters who are hiding from the law, Glenn Scoville here is a man of danger in a way. You can find Glenn on top of Mount Chilliad which isn’t the dangerous thing about him but what he is doing is what can be labeled as dangerous and annoying as well if you are trying to avoid a chase sequence.

For this, it is recommended to take a taser and a helicopter with you because you will find this guy shooting a skydiving video on Mount Chilliad, and he will proceed to jump if you try to capture him, so keep a parachute if you want as well. Still, I would recommend the easy way of just using a helicopter.

But there is another way that makes sure there is no chase is that you tase the guy just before he jumps off. There is a small window of opportunity here, so make the most of it and use the taser gun right after seeing the guy.

And then escort him to Maude for a full bounty. And the helicopter will come in handy in this escort as it’s not easy to get off  Mount Chilliad by driving, at least not for a reckless driver such as myself.

Reprobate 4: Curtis Weaver

The Final target is Curtis weaver

Curtis weaver is found very easily as you don’t have to go around his last known location in the middle of nowhere. This guy can be found at a very specific location in Paleto bay, which is the Hobo camp, or the activist camp as they call themselves.

He will no doubt try to run if he spots you and he can go one of the two ways depending on where he sees you. One is he runs to the highway where he gets almost road killed by a coming car which will make your work easy, but there’s a chance he completely dies, so just tasing him is a better and safer option to apprehend the guy.

And Curtis marks the last one on the wanted list in the GTA story mode. There is no other reprobate after this, and Maude doesn’t text you after this. Maybe because she is out of any more reprobates or she has found someone more capable of handling situations better than Trevor as he is a man of anger lore-wise.

So her quest for justice proceeds to deliver you contracts in the online version of the game where she sends you emails about wanted people brought in dead or alive, the latter being more rewarding, just like in the story mode.

Maude Missions In GTA Online

GTA 5 online is a continuation of the story of the offline version. As it contains multiple old character mechanics and a lot of familiar faces, you work with to move up in the online world. One of these familiar faces is Maude Eccles, the deliverer of justice.

Also, I might have lied about this or haven’t told the full truth in other words. Cause if you drove right to her trailer after reading the previous paragraph. Maude is and isn’t in the GTA online; this works because she doesn’t appear in her physical model but just in textual interaction. Yes, you will only receive text messages from her and nothing else, no cutscene whatsoever.

In GTA online it’s going to be straight and simple you receive her text including the location given in her email and execute the straight assassination or apprehend them. But locating the target without any waypoint mark is still there. So to solve that hassle, we will help you out on that.

You can make use of your own skills and thousands of hours in GTA that you accumulated by cruising around Los Santos to locate the reprobates or just make use of this guide and locate those reprobates easily.

Here are all the possible locations of reprobates hiding in Los Santos:

  • Chumash North
  • Chumash South (Great Ocean Highway)
  • Kortz Center (Pacific Bluffs)
  • Del Perro Pier
  • Vespucci
  • Richard’s Majestic (Backlot City)
  • Rockford Hills
  • Vinewood Boulevard (Vinewood)
  • Madrazo’s Ranch (Vinewood Hills)
  • Mirror Park
  • Legion Square
  • El Burro Heights
  • Paleto Bay North
  • Paleto Bay South
  • Procopio Truck Stop (Mount Chiliad)
  • Grapeseed
  • Sandy Shores North
  • Sandy Shores South
  • Harmony
  • Grand Senora Desert

All Maude Mission rewards

The Maude Missions are rewarding a lot, just like in the story version, but even go as far as to give you an extra reward which isn’t achievable in any other way.

The Cash output rate for each bounty is the same as what Trevor earns from Maude in story mode, which is $10,000 for alive and $5000 for dead. So the better option is bringing the reprobates back alive rather than shooting their heads off. But it’s a matter of choice. If you don’t have money issues, you can kill them with no story consequence.

Now the Maude mission is just a repetitive task of going to certain locations to capture or kill reprobates even though all the targets are in unique locations with their own unique system to escape from being captured or killed and pose a different kinds of challenges. However, it’s still repetitive to some extent especially escorting them.

So to add some spice to this side quest, Rockstar has an extra reward for you that isn’t even bound to GTA V alone. To get this gift, you only need to do the first five bounties. After doing that, you will receive a text from Maude that the last bounty had something stashed away; she will provide you with coordinates that you will have to follow and find the hidden stash containing a stone hatchet.

The stone hatchet is an exclusive weapon you acquire from this side quest, but it doesn’t end there. The next step is to not let the hatchet catch dust in your inventory and go wild with it and kill it. Achieving 25 kills with the stone hatchet will result in a secret reward of $250,000 in GTA Online.

GTA V Maude mission rewards don’t even stop there, So after achieving this great feat, you will receive even another additional reward if you own another specific Rockstar game which is Red Dead Redemption 2. If you get the stone hatchet in GTA V and the next time you boot up Red Dead Redemption 2, you will also receive the stone hatchet there.
