Here's a snip from the Q&A page:
Q1: Can you use Bounty Hunter whenever a runner leaves a run, for
whatever reason? Barney Phyffe, Green Apple, or even if they just fall into
the Nets or can't get past the Maglock?
A1: Bounty Hunter can be used whenever a Runner pulls out of a run
(for any reason) before taking the Objective.
Q2: Regarding the Bounty Hunter, does the amount of nuyen paid always equal
the Body as printed in the Runner's threat rating? Or does the amount of
nuyen paid equal "current" body (i.e. - augmented by cyberware, decreased by
damage taken, etc.)
A2: You pay the Runner's current Body value (however it's modified--damage,
dermal plating, whatever) when using Bounty Hunter.
Q3: Can you use Bounty Hunter on multiple characters pulling out at the same
A3: Yes. (It would appear Jim and Skuzzy reached a final agreement on this.)


I'll follow this up with yet another question :). Can I use the
bounty hunter multiple times against the same person, ie if he fails the
first time, can I hit the same runner again?
