pvp mode, gold payouts, and the bonus gold multiplier

So, I have done the daily challenges every day since they started this bonus program where you do at least one daily challenge every day for a week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, and a month, and after each 7 day period the amount of gold that you receive for various things in the world, ie: treasure chests, stranger missions, stranger encounters, I thought pvp modes, etc.. would be x the multiplier depending on how many days into it you are, I am on day 22 I think, maybe 23 I forget, so it is substantial,.

My last two treasures were pretty stacked, 1.66 gold bars and I think 1.8 BUT the pvp modes, I played featured series, showdown, and showdown large were pathetic, I was in 2nd place each time by very little, I was right there in the mix, so I know it isnt great for 2nd, but it was like .08, or .018 I think even, not sure but after several round I hadnt collected a single whole gold bar.

My time is better spent leveling up with a mix of hunting, stranger missions, hideouts, and encounters, plus resetting awards and selling herbs, etc..

I mean way way more gold from doing those than playing any of the pvp modes I tried.

Later on I will go in and try a few more, but so far I am very un-impressed and thinking as long as they are giving away a bar of gold for each level, screw it that is my focus until it ends,

What have you noticed pertaining to gold payouts?

Sorry to break it to you, but the update dropped on 05/14/19, so you are on day 15 bud.

I'm not 100% positive but I'm pretty sure the multiplier only applies to the daily challenges. 

I know there was a bonus for treasure chests.  Is that still ongoing or was it just for the week after the update?

Would have been nice if Rockstar had provided a timeframe for how long the bonus gold bar, per level up, will be ongoing... typical rockstar leaving everybody in the dark.

On this, I am in agreement 1000%... pretty much my playing style since day 1... but I also throw 10 salmon, trout, small and largemouth bass into the mix, to keep the cash flowing , while delaying leveling... trying to maximize the cash intake per level

Multiplier applies only to daily challenges it's been that since update if you get to fourth week you will get treasure map for each 7/7 challenges or each challenge like 7x7 49 maps I doubt more likely is each day one map given all challenges finished so seven maps max ??????

I wasnt clear if it was all gold or specific gold, sorry about the dates, I didnt have my game on when I wrote this so I cant see the actual number of days, whatever it is I have done them from the first day til now, It is over two weeks, working on week 3 I think.

Do we have to do every daily each day or at least one? I flatly refuse to do the player kills ones. So I've only been able to get one full set once. Every day since has had at least one 'kill so many players' challange.

Since the update i noticed that the best way of exping and cash/gold bars is now Free roam and stranger missions. Before the update the best way to gain exp was playing showdowns and hunting for gold and dollars. That seem to change. Also there are quite a lot of events happening in free roam that earn You even more extra cash and exp not to mention new acheivements. 

The daily streak is nice as well but i dont think it impacts the rewards from treasure maps. I lost my streak that i had since the update (was on day 15 or 16) bcoz of long download of the update and now im back on day 1. Y day i got one treasure map and got 1+ gold bars and 111 $ and before that one i had 2 with only 50 $ each and something like 0,6 gold in it besides having the streak.

.....but at least now the players kill challenges are within PvP modes rather than Free Roam.

I was really disappointed to find out that this week's payout bonuses for completing the story missions, Kill them all, each and every one and Destroyed by grief are only for new players.😥

This. I made my poor posse redo Destroyed by Grief and we got nothing.

Ahh, maybe I will give one a go then. I don't bother with the showdowns etc usually.

This was another change they made likely based on feedback as I believe many folks found it contradictory to their anti-griefing additions.

It's not for new players only, I received the rewards and Ive been on since day one. It takes a few hours for you to get them-if you finished w/o restarting you will get them. It took me a minute to figure out how/why I received 10 gold bars and $75 out of the blue.

I will have to check next time I log in. Thanks for the heads up.

Just to be clear, had you already completed the missions before this week tho? Is it possible to just select those missions from the replay menu and get the bonuses?

Yea man, I had done all boards at least 3xs b4 this week and yes you can pick the mission from the menu. Don't forget you'll also get $75 within 24hrs when you finish "Kill 'em all each and every one". You might need to be in a posse to get the rewards I thought I read that but no big deal, you can be in a posse by yourself as I was and still get paid. If you have a posse load in to be safe if not give it a try if no rewards within 24 hours you'll definitely need to be in a posse.

I looked just now, I am on day 18 consecutive daily challenges, so 3 more days for the 3 week multiplier.
