The Doomsday Heist Preparations are Freemode missions that are needed to progress the setup missions. They can be viewed and started from the Planning Room of Facilities.

Planning Screen

After paying the setup cost of one of the three acts, the screen displays a list of preparations the player needs to complete in order to unlock the setup.

There are three ways for completing the preparations:

  • Initiating a Freemode Preparation.
  • Stealing the equipment from rival Heist Crews.
  • Purchasing the equipment directly, for $94,500.

The Freemode Preparation is the standard way to acquire the equipment, which the crew must head to the location and take it by any means. However, prep jobs are restricted to public lobbies.

If there is a rival organization/motorcycle club stealing the equipment for the same act, the player will be notified by Lester and a heist prep icon DDH-PrepIcon-GTAO.png will be displayed on the map, so the player and their crew can take it for their own. Similarly, if the player is stealing the equipment, they will expect a possible competition from rival Heist crews to take said equipment.
