Assemble your crew and take part in the riskiest job of the Los Santos underworld – the Doomsday Heist. The rewards are massive, and so is the adrenaline rush across the three rambled acts of mayhem.
Certain wicked outside organizations have joined forces together to devise a plan so diabolical that it could end the entire humanity.
Avon Hertz, a billionaire entrepreneur, along with his pet neural network Clifford, has found shreds of evidence related to this.
Our very own Lester Crest is responsible for assembling a team that’s badass and crazy enough to be able to do whatever it takes to bring those notorious organizations down. However, it certainly isn’t going to be a cakewalk.
To deal with this threat head-on, you not only need powerful firepower and some serious teamwork but also a snort of luck and of course, some assistance from Avon’s lethal blue-sky tactical hardware for the job.
It’s a no-brainer why the Doomsday Heist is still so popular among the community, even though several newer ones have already been added.
That being said, if you’re playing this heist for the first time, consider this guide as your one-stop reference for the same.

GTA Online Doomsday Heist- Walkthrough
There’s a lot of money at stake in the Doomsday Heist. Depending on the difficulty level you choose while beginning the heist, the bonus challenges you complete, and the modifiers you apply, the payout may vary.
Preparation for Act 1
- Paramedic Equipment
The objective of this prep mission is to steal an ambulance containing paramedic equipment. When you start the mission, get in a car and head to Del Perro Freeway.
There, you’ll find an ambulance near some police vehicles. Sneak your way into the ambulance.
Now, you’ll need to lose the wanted level by making the cops lose track of you. Once done, drive the ambulance back to the facility.

In this second preparation mission for act 1, you have to find your way out through the Garage where the Deluxos are kept while evading the security guards.
To do this, you first have to drive to Steele way and locate an apartment with a lot of security around it.
Then, please take out the guards and retrieve a key dropped by one of them that will be used to access the garage.
Once you’ve cleared the area, access the garage and make sure you have equipped your weapon, as you have to kill some more enemies before stealing the Deluxos.
Soon after stealing, you’ll send a global signal, so anyone can find and kill you. So make sure you keep a fast pace, get your Deluxo resprayed in LS customs with your preferred color, and deliver it quickly at the facility.
You have to repeat the same process unless you have four Deluxos delivered to the facility.
Akula is the third prep mission for act 1 that requires you to infiltrate a control tower at Fort Zancudo, access the control tower, take a lift to the top floor, and download the required data.
