Bounties are one of the primary ways for the Supply Department to make money. They involve a list of things CentCom wants and how much they'll give for it, sending them to CentCom, and actually redeeming the cargo points.
How to do Bounties
You can view bounties at a Bounty Console. These are located in the Cargo Bay and Quartermaster's Office. The console has the option to print out a list of bounties, which is a good idea to do at round start. You can take these printouts and tape them to
every single airlock the door to each department. Make sure people who are the only ones who can do certain bounties, such as the Virologist, know what you need from them, either over comms or through a PDA message. You could also use the Mailroom to send everyone bounty papers.
Once you get the item for a bounty, put it on the Supply Shuttle and send it down. The Supply Console should indicate that CentCom has received the items. After verifying this, you can then return to the Bounty Console and press "Redeem" next to the completed bounty, and the money will be added to the Cargo Budget.
