There are two ways to fail a bounty in The Division 2. One is to die during the mission, obviously. The other is to fail to complete the bounty in the allotted time frame.

All that said, there’s one more tricky bit that we have to mention: it seems that bounty targets move around different location. So, if you fail a bounty in The Division 2 and want to restart it, you might not find the target where you first found it. Look around the map until you spot it again. The map icon is a stylized target, so flick between them to find the one you want.
