The Doomsday Heist is a three-part[1] Heist sequence introduced to Grand Theft Auto Online in the Doomsday Heist Update.


"There are three ways to acquire Heist Prep Equipment. By completing Freemode Preps, stealing it from rival Heist Crews or by purchasing the equipment directly."
— On-Screen instruction

This Heist can only be played while being in a CEO or VIP Organization or being in a Motorcycle Club and the CEO/VIP/MC President must own a Facility in order to start The Doomsday Heist.

Unlike previous Heists, Prep Jobs are featured in the three acts of the Doomsday Heists: These are required in order to progress to the Setup missions. Prep Jobs are completed seamlessly in public Freemode sessions and players have the option to do the mission, steal the equipment from rival CEO/VIP Organizations and Motorcycle Clubs, or buy the equipment; however, these missions can be completed by the CEO/VIP/MC President themselves without any other member in the Organization/MC, though it is not recommended, as there could be PvP action. You can only steal equipment from other Heist crews when they have the same Prep jobs available and are in the same Act of the Doomsday Heist.

Preparation and setup jobs may be completed in any order within each Act.
