Easy as pie, so long as you use an alternate save line and don't mind the travel time. (You couldn't fast travel in the last game if the guards were after you.) I believe 1,000 gold penalties could be incurred in Oblivion by committing one murder in public view. If this doesn't work, just punch beggars or children (Which I think are confirmed to be in the game??? If not, use horses) until you have met the quota.

getting $1000 in fines is easy in oblivion. kill a guard or 2 after u steal a horse, then kill it and its original owner, run off to next town (or 'hold') and repeat. i don't see it as being hard though, more inconvienent. gonna try to do this before joining any guilds. dont wanna get booted out and pay more fines to get back in.

This achievement looks like they have changed the bounty system now, seeing as you have to get a 1000 gold bounty in DIFFERENT holds... so if you're wanted in one city/hold then you can actually escape and not be attacked by everyone once you're in another... awesome :)

Do you need to have an even 1000G bounty? I've visited all Nine holds and killedan NPC, but I have 1040G bounty, and the cheevo isn't unlocking. (40 for the assault and 100 for the murder)

|Comment #18 by BKNaB|
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 10:52:50 PM
It needs to be 1,000 in each city not 1,000 overall. That's the only bit of confusion I'd be able to think of...

Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 10:28:45 AM
@ 18, referring to my earlier post #16, I have a 1040G bounty in each hold. So my question still stands, does it have to be an even 1000?

If you are a werewolf its an automatic 1000 bounty for changing into one in town
|Comment #21 by Flamin B|
Friday, November 18, 2011 @ 09:00:25 PM
No, it does not need to be even. I had bounties ranging from 1000 even to 3080.
Are you sure you did all 9? If you have no bounty in one hold, it won't even list it. I suggest you count out all 9.

|Comment #24 by kaosmace|
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 11:16:56 AM
ok so the reason that this may not ding is that the guards in a hold aren't actively hunting you. i used the "i'm a thane" in whiterun and then they didn't attack me when i went back. killed a guard, they all attacked me and i dinged.
|Comment #25 by Flamin B|

@23 You can't fast travel when anyone nearby is aggressive towards you (red dots). Run away and you can fast travel once you're in the clear.
|Comment #26 by flechetteXXX|
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 04:33:03 PM
This achievement is not as challenging as people might think or it initially sounds. The best way to do this is to have lycanthropy. Changing into a werewolf in front of a civilian is automatically a 1000 gold bounty. Fast travel to all the major cities and transform into a werewolf right outside the gates where there is always 2 guards watching and then you can sprint off into the wilderness before they can react or give chase. Once in the clear you can fast travel to the next city. If you don’t have lycanthropy you can murder a guard which is also an automatic 1000 gold bounty but may be a little more difficult to pull off and is much harder to escape the hold to fast travel.
|Comment #27 by Lord of Fate|
Monday, November 21, 2011 @ 05:29:53 PM
The game doesn't save that you attained a bounty sometimes. I'm not sure why. I checked my status after I had gotten a 1000+ gold bounty in each hold and it said I did nothing in two holds and only had 125 in another, which was incorrect. So I went back and did it again in those holds that I needed and the achievement popped. You don't need exactly 1000 gold or anything, it's just some sort of glitch that doesn't save some of them. Just make sure to check your stats like Flamin B suggested.

Thursday, December 01, 2011 @ 01:48:59 AM
Will the fact that i am Thane of a bunch of the holds make it so i cannot get the bounty??? Im thinking i will get the bounty but the guards dont bother unless its over 2000, anyone know for sure??
|Comment #33 by Murkin Muffley|
Friday, December 02, 2011 @ 10:21:31 AM
Just a follow up i got the cheevo yesterday and you can still get it if your Thane of that hold. Also the easiest way is def. to turn into a werewolf in front of a guard, but as a side not you must make sure that right after you do it says in the top left corner of the screen, 1000 bounty added to "whichever hold your in", just refer to #21 for the holds, thats the list i used.

Thursday, December 08, 2011 @ 08:56:20 PM
Just did it. Unlocked for me. You had to really pay attention because if there was only one guard outside a city the bounty would be taken away because no witnesses were left. And don't have a companion with you because they will continue to attack the other guards which also voids the bounty because of the witness issue.

after each one check crime in the pause menu to see for 1000 bounty the towns are as follows:

6.Markarth (The Reach)
9.Dawnstar (The Pale)
|Comment #45 by OMGmyFACE|
Tuesday, December 20, 2011 @ 01:04:18 AM
One guard death is an easy 1000 bounty. Kill one, run until there's no one hostile around, fast travel to another hold (provided you went to them via a carriage ride or wandering around), repeat. Easy and fun.
|Comment #46 by sccrbsbll330|
Thursday, December 22, 2011 @ 05:44:56 PM
When I did this, I killed one of the guards outside each of the cities and ran, then crouched when I was out of sight of them. You will leave combat shortly, but may not be able to fast travel for a minute. I kept getting the "can't fast travel while guards are pursuing you" message. Just keep running and try again in a little bit.
|Comment #47 by Cuthred|
Friday, December 30, 2011 @ 12:05:33 PM
this achievement is bugged imho ... the game will tell you there is a bounty of 1000 gold on your head - but if a guard catches you while commiting the crime and you will tell him to rather die than go to jail, the 1000 bounty will be *lost*.
|Comment #48 by a dying animal|

To save time knowing when you can fast travel just keep pressing "back" when running, if the wait screen doesn't appear then you can't fast travel yet.

Just got this today and encountered an interesting bug. I had a bounty of 1000+ in each hold and then went to my last one, Windhelm. I kill a civilian and the achievement didn't pop. I went to the statistic menu and saw that it put the assault charge on Windhelm, but not the murder. So I killed another one. When the achievement still didn't pop I looked at the statistics again and noticed that Whiterun was at over 3000 bounty. I killed another person and when I went back to the stats Whiterun had shot up again. I just reloaded an earlier save and it put the bounty in the right hold.
TL;DR: if it's not unlocking make sure it's assigning the bounty to the right hold.

I was also puzzled about this one not unlocking... until I realised I'd missed Dawnstar.
The Crime list only shows existing bounties, so I was looking and thinking that I had over 1000 for all holds.
For all those of you moaning that this doesn't unlock, check how many holds you have bounties in, chances are it'll be 8. Then check comment #45 above and check which one you've missed.
It unlocked for me as soon as I murdered a guard in Dawnstar.

Thursday, January 05, 2012 @ 02:32:28 AM
I tried getting this achievement today, i just killed one guard, and if anyone else came after me, i killed them too. Until no one else came up to me, and traveled to the next hold.
When i had finished, i had a bounty of 1040-10000 in each town. No achievement.

I have like 10,000 bounty in every hold and didn't get the achievement.. wtf. I'm kind of pissed. I have been running into a lot of glitches is Skyrim lately. I can't finish the Thieves Guild achievement either. This is annoying. I just want my Dang achievements!!!!
Anybody know a way around this problem. I'd at least like to get the 100 bounty one before I box this game back up and give up completely.

Got it first try. Each hold I attacked had a different bounty, some were 1000 and others were 3000+.
Most basic tip is: Make sure you have 9 (As in nine, not eight, or seven).

i killed two gaurds in winterhold. thats all there was in the whole city and because they were both dead i guess the bounty didn't count and i had to search everywhere to find one more to kill. my tip would be to just injure on one of the guards and make sure you get into a fight and try to run off and then kill the few that fallow. check your stats too.

When I did this I would just kill an NPC while there was a guard around then run away and fast travel as soon as possible to the next place and repeat. A couple times I had to go back to a hold I thought I had already gotten the bounty because it only registered as an assault or something, also if you kill someone and the only witness has a low responsibility rating then they won't report it to the guards and you won't gain a bounty.

Wednesday, February 08, 2012 @ 05:13:10 PM
here is what I did to make it nice and quick.
1) Go chop a person's head off to automatically get the $1,000 bounty
2) I am a warrior/wizard who specializes in destruction and restoration. There is a skill in the restoration category that allows healing magic restore stamina as well, it helps greatly since I don't have to spend my level ups on stamina at all.
3) Use the shout whirlwind sprint to get a couple steps ahead of the guards chasing you. Usually 2 will be enough to get away.
4) Rinse and repeat. Happy killing innocents :)

|Comment #71 by ProudGreek|
Saturday, February 18, 2012 @ 03:49:54 AM
honestly, one of the easiest achievements in the game.
wander into the town (or outside in the stables), slaughter some niggers, make sure you leave one to run his mouth off. Gap it until you can fast travel, rinse and repeat. Highly recommend starting with Solitude, working anticlockwise and finishing with Whiterun (just fast travel to the dragonreach and there will be 4 or 5 guards ripe for the kill).
Make sure to get Falkreath, Morthal, Dawnstar and Winterhold!!

#45 is the best way to go. Changed into wolf in front of guards outside of town, and then ran like hell. As soon as i was far enough, i advanced time 22 hours than fast traveled to my next location.

if you captured solitude or windhelm with stormcloaks or the imperials that hold goes away I did it and there were only 8 holds. Hjaalmarch was gone. So go back to an earlier save. I hope this helps, goodluck.

Pretty easy achievement, just make a save before hand then go to each city listed and kill a guard and make sure it says 1000 bountry added, then run a way till you can wait (tap back button) and then fast travel to the next city on the list sometimes this wouldn't work for me because the guards were "pursing me" so I would just run to the next one. This took about an hour (mostly loading screens).

Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 07:47:16 AM
Right so, for the people still wanting this cheevo. the best way to do this is to kill a guard in view of another guard and then run. WARNING! if the guard starts talking to you you've done it wrong MAKE SURE THE GUARDS ARE ATTACKING YOU!! once the guards are attacking run away out of the city and make haste for the nearest mountain or so, (if you have shadowmere fantastic if not fine) If you have a horse (do not steal one!) ride it up the nearest mountain and try not to kill it. then make your way down the otherside (easiest way to get rid of guards) once you have done this, fast travel to the nearest hold do the same and make sure that you have exactly 1000 gold, i didn't get this the first time due to the fact in Solitude i had 1005, if you have a bounty, talk to a guard and pay it off,

persuade your way out or simply go to jail. then kill the guards, once all 9 holds have 1000 bounty (check in general stats < crime) then cheevo should pop. MAKE SURE ITS 1000 GOLD NO MORE NO LESS!

as a side note, whilst running away spam back (if you're good at multitasking) once the box appears to wait, you can successfully fast travel, the 9 holds are:

Be careful while attempting this if you have completed a majority of the game. I was master of all the guilds and in Riften and Dawnstar, when I killed a guard, ran away and teleported to another place, the Thieves in Riften killed the witnesses and reduced my bounty to 0, and something happened in Dawnstar too that removed the witnesses.
So make sure you check your bounties in the general stats > crime menu to make sure your bounties are still standing.

if you're in sneak mode when killing the guard you dont have to worry about running just fast travel quickly to your next location
