Manipulating the stock market is for dweebs. Grab a gun, lets plan a big score.

TREVOR-gtav

Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the greatest games ever made, and you’ll find it on all deserving formats; it began on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 before getting the upgrade treatment for release on PS4 and Xbox One, eventually making its way to PC. Buy the game and you actually get two games in one package.

GTA 5 is the massive single-player experience where three protagonists team up to terrorise Los Santos and get what’s theirs. Trevor, Franklin and Michael are a triple threat and the adventure is never less than violent and hilarious, taking in increasingly outlandish scores until it hits an epic climax. But the game also comes with GTA Online, a massive, sprawling online city that allows you to run wild through its streets, taking part in missions, races, elaborate heists and a multitude of other criminal activities. Packed with vehicles to hoard, you can build your own empire, running illegal businesses, employing other players and living large in mansions and yachts. It really is an epic crime drama.

Here then, we present the most complete guide to GTA 5 you’ll find. From cheats and tips in the single-player game to advice for becoming a CEO, earning massive amounts of cash for pulling off bank robberies, buying the best cars and having you fingers in as many lucrative pies as possible. Own the streets, buddy.

GTA Online Heists guides

Heists can only be unlocked by the player in order. This means you’ll have to work through them systematically if you want to be the guy in charge. Otherwise you can accept any heist and take part, but you’re only ever going to be the dogsbody, never the one who takes the biggest cut. Here are guides to all five heists and all the rewards you get for completing them.

  • The Fleeca Job

  • The Fleeca Job is your intro to heists. It only takes two of you, and the payout isn’t half bad. Let’s get some practice in.

  • The Prison Break

  • The prison break is one of the most popular heists, as you break and out of the maximum security prison with human cargo and a daring escape.

  • The Humane Labs Raid

  • EMPs, 4-wheel drives, a VTOL jet, the Valkyrie chopper and a tricky stealth mission. Things are about to get tough.

  • Series A Funding

  • Raid a massive yacht and steal a tonne of drugs while under heavy fire. The bullets fly but the payoff is well worth it.

  • The Pacific Standard

  • Stock up on ammo and armour for the biggest bank job yet. The money’s fantastic if you can survive long enough to spend it.

  • Heists: make the most money with Special Bonuses and Elite Challenges

  • All of the above jobs pay out a lot more money when you complete special objectives. This is how to make those heists really work for you.
