Objective Bounties are added in League of Legends Season 12 to help teams navigate their way through the game. Each Baron, Dragon, and Turret is a stepping stone to success, here’s how Objective Bounties will work and how much they are worth.
League of Legends Season 12 features a ton of updates across all levels, tinkering with some of the more recent major redesigns.
A few new elements are filling the void left by the Season 11 revamp, two new dragons will add dynamic new souls to Summoner’s Rift, and the rune system is once again undergoing big changes.
However, a whole new feature is Objective Bounties, building on the same for champions. Here’s how it will work in League of Legends Season 12, and how much it’s worth.
What are objective bonuses in League of Legends?
Objective bounties are very similar to champion bounties in League of Legends. However, instead of the bounty being put on the head of a single champion — and paid to a single player — the bounty is now spread across the entire map.
Every major League of Legends objective – the Turrets, Dragons, Rift Herald and Baron Nashor – will offer a bonus “only when a team is sufficiently late and is highlighted on the minimap for both. teams ”.
The losing team can take these goals to get an influx of gold, evenly split between the team. If a team catches up without taking a bounty, it will disappear from the map within 15 seconds.
How much are the objective bonuses worth?
Objective bonuses are calculated based on four factors: XP advance, Gold advance, Dragon advance, and Turret advance. Each goal has a different value assigned to it, which you can find below:
- Baron and Elder Dragon: 500 Gold
- Dragon and Rift Herald: 500 gold
- Outer turret: 250 gold
- Inner and Base Turrets: 400 Gold
This increases as teams fall behind, increasing by an additional 60% meaning Baron and Dragons could be worth up to 800 gold if you’re late enough.
While the system will help those who fall behind early, Riot made sure it wasn’t strong enough to completely turn the tides of a match.
“We don’t want to invalidate the big advantages caused by the lack of skills. If you’re just that good and dominate your opponent on the lane and snowball, that advantage shouldn’t go away completely, ”the developers explained in an August blog post.
Objective bounties will be added in League of Legends patch 11.23 when the preseason update launches on November 17.
