The GameFAQs FAQ Bounty program pays contributors for specific complete, comprehensive FAQs, Walkthroughs, and In-Depth Guides submitted and posted on GameFAQs. For each game listed, if you are the first person to submit and have posted on GameFAQs a FAQ meeting all of the listed requirements, you may claim the Bounty award associated with it.

  • The FAQ Bounty program is a cash-for-FAQs program. There are no restrictions by country or locale, except as prohibited by local law.
  • Your FAQ must consist solely of original work, meaning that all content in the FAQ must be your own creation. Any plagiarism or copyright issues with your work will render it ineligible for the Bounty program.
  • You must submit a Formatted FAQ to be eligible for the bounty, with images and maps as appropriate to fulfill the listed requirements.
  • You still own your work and the copyright on it, but you are licensing your FAQ to be displayed permanently on GameFAQs and any current or future partner sites. Your FAQ does not need to be exclusive to GameFAQs, but you may not request its removal.
  • If a game has multiple FAQ Bounties listed, you can claim any or all of these Bounties as you choose. You may choose to complete all of these Bounties in a single FAQ or spread across multiple FAQs.
  • If a game has multiple FAQ Bounties listed, they may be claimed by multiple FAQ authors. Claiming one FAQ Bounty does not guarantee that you can claim them all.
  • In the case of two or more contributors submitting FAQs meeting all requirements, the Bounty may only be claimed by the contributor with the earliest submission.
  • Payment for a completed Bounty will be made by CBS Interactive. As part of claiming a Bounty, you will be required to fill out paperwork, including any relevant tax information. If you are under the age of 18, you may be required to have a parent or guardian fill out additional forms.
  • Once listed, the value of a Bounty may be increased, but not decreased, until it expires. After they expire, unfilled Bounties may be re-listed at a different value.
  • The Bounty Claim form is available here.
