Best GTA Online heists for cash rewards, ranked

GTA Online’s heists are the big moneymakers for players, but which ones are the most lucrative when it comes to the cash payouts? Well, look no further. 

If you really want to make your mark on Los Santos and GTA Online, you need cash. Cash is king after all, and it’ll open many doors for you and your ever-growing criminal empire. 

You can simply grind out jobs, sell a business’ stock, or win race after race to make money, but they don’t bring home the big bucks in the same way that heists do. 

GTA Online’s heists have become legendary thanks to the journey Rockstar Games takes players on in order to make the big money, but what are the best heists to actually do? Well, here, we’ve got the payout for each heist ranked from top to bottom. 

Diamond Casino Heist

Rockstar Games
The Diamond Casino heist can be tricky to navigate.

The most lucrative heist of the lot in GTA Online is the Diamond Casino Heist. In this job, you are able to ransack the vault of the Diamond Casino and Resort in different ways. 

The best part is, well, the score changes with each attempt so it doesn’t have to feel like you’re just grinding the same job over and over again. There’s always a different target at the end of the day. 

The ever-elusive Diamonds bring home the most cash, but after that, it’s all about Gold. Artwork and Cash are also worthwhile to steal, but you want the other two where possible. 

Doomsday Heists – The Doomsday Scenario & The Bogdan Problem

The Doomsday Heist jobs can get pretty wild.

After the Diamond Heist, the Doomsday Heists are the best in terms of rewards. They aren’t as lucrative as robbing the casino, but the payouts will still provide a nice boost to your Maze Bank account. 

The best of which is the Doomsday Scenario. This pays out around $1,500,000 on hard and $1,200,000 on normal. After that, the Bogdan Problem pays out well too, but there is a drop off from the final mission. 

Pacific Standard Job

The Pacific Standard heist used to be the best of the lot.

After the Doomsday Heists, the only other job that pays out over $1,000,000 is the Pacific Standard job. This is your typical GTA bank heist and was, for the longest time, the best heist in the game. 

Now, it’s just the daddy of the base heists, and well worth playing if you want some cash. After that, the Humane Labs Raid pays out the best, with the Series A Funding job lagging behind. 


The other jobs, The Flecca Job and The Prison Break, won’t pay out all that well, but if you’ve never played them, they are worth experiencing at least. 

An all-new heist is set to launch with GTA Online’s upcoming winter update, and Rockstar could very well raise the bar again and make that the most lucrative job. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Activision’s integration of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War brought a load of new content to the game in Season 1, and next up is the Warzone Season 2 update. The massive patch introduced a huge overhaul to content, including new weapons, map changes, and more. 

On launch day, we will be keeping you on top of all the live updates as they happen for all things Warzone. In the live blog below, we’ll be posting everything you need to be equipped properly for battle, including guides, news, leaks and reactions from streamers and fans.

Agency Suppressor and Silencer nerfs to be reverted

February 25, 9:30pm GMT

One of the new changes that CoD fans were not fond of in the new update? A secret nerf to the Agency Suppressor and other silencers. Back when BOCW integrated, the suppressor was buffed so that it helped bullet velocity and was therefore comparable to the Monolithic Suppressor. That was then nerfed in Season 2.

To the satisfaction of virtually all players, those secret nerfs are going to be reverted. As Raven Software confirmed within a day of the update, Cold War suppressors will soon be, once again, buffed so that they are more viable at range.


How to get Yellow Access Cards

February 25, 8:00pm GMT

New locations and new silos may have nothing on the newest loot box, which can only be found on the new Ship POI. After you kill enough zombies, you can get a Yellow Access Card which can then be used to unlock a humming, glowing chest.

For more information on how to secure a Yellow Access Card and earn some of that sweet, exclusive loot — check out our full guide.


How to unlock LC-10 & FARA 83

We’ve posted two guides now on how to unlock the new Season 2 weapons, in both Multiplayer for Black Ops Cold War, and for Warzone. Here’s the one for the LC-10 and the other for the FARA 83. 

The good news is that they are fairly simple to get, as you grind through the Battle Pass. Speaking of which, check out the last post…


Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass rewards

Gas damage change

February 25, 3:42pm GMT
Here’s an interesting change that you might have missed in the patch notes. The gas that takes over the Warzone maps will potentially deal more damage this season, depending on how you play. The notes state: “Players that are continually in the gas will suffer more damage over time.”

It will be interesting to see how that’s received with the community.

It looks like some players will need to abandon ship, as most of the lobby is headed right for the Tanker Ship POI.

It looks like glitches are still very much a thing, sadly.
