— Instructions


The Prison Break is the final part of Prison Break, the second Heist available in Grand Theft Auto Online; added in The Heist Update.

Overview

Agent 14 calls in that the schedule has been "brought forward", stating that the death of Rashkovsky's partners had caused attention and a price has been put on his head. During the mission each member of the crew will assume a different role. The officer and prisoner will both get into the prison using the stolen prison bus; a pilot and the demolition will both provide support to the ground crew in their respective roles. All players except the Prisoner (Prisoner will only get an AP Pistol) will be equipped with an AP Pistol and Special Carbine and the demolitions team will also have a Jerry Can and Sticky Bombs.

Walkthrough

The demolition needs to intercept the Prison Bus before he reaches Bolingbroke, while the pilot needs to go to Los Santos International collect the Velum.

Both the officer and the prisoner need to collect the Prison Bus left in the junkyard near Sandy Shores.

Demolition

The prison bus will be near Great Chaparral and is unguarded, kill the driver and take the bus to Sandy Shores Airfield following the GPS route to avoid alerting the authorities. Once at the airfield, destroy the bus using any means available (Molotov Cocktails are provided). Go to the new location on the map at the western end of the airfield to steal a Buzzard, which is being guarded by one or two Merryweather guards. The instructions say to protect the Velum, so take out the pursuing Lazer then the player can go to the prison to give aerial support to the Officer and Prisoner once the N.O.O.S.E team has been called. 

Now work with the officer and prisoner to kill all the N.O.O.S.E members so they can make their way out of the prison with Rashkovsky. Once the area has been cleared the pilot is informed that he can land the Velum at Sandy Shores Airfield. Protect the officer, prisoner and Rashkovsky so they can reach the Velum. Once they have lost the cops, and the crew has parachuted from the Velum, regroup with them in a beach in Palomino Highlands to collect them with the Buzzard and then fly the team back into the city.

Officer and Prisoner

After both have entered in the bus, go to Bolingbroke Penitentiary to get access to the prison. The officer will be the one driving, so be careful to not attract police attention.

After entering in the prison, both players need to make their way to Rashkovsky. Both players immediately take out the four officers that is near them (if they decide to continue walking along, a guard with a shotgun will open fire on them even if they are doing nothing wrong). Now both players will need to fight their way through the prison. Follow where the yellow marker tells you to go and it will lead you to Rashkovsky. Rashkovsky is in a lock down so theres just one way to reach him, the Prisoner must then go pick him, while the Officer stick behind to give support when the N.O.O.S.E reinforcements come. Remember to not trigger the cutscene where the player gives the gun to Rashkovsky before the demolition member is ready to give support from the sky with the Buzzard.

Now work with the Demolition to kill all the N.O.O.S.E members and get out of the prison with Rashkovsky. Near the prison entrance, there will be a Police Riot van ready for them to drive. Get in with Rashkovsky and proceed to the airfield. Now there will be cops spawning on the airfield so have the Demolition clear them out. Once the area has been cleaned inform the pilot that he can land the Velum. Wait for the pilot to land the Velum on the airfield and get in the plane. The pilot must now lose his wanted level. After losing the cops and jumping out of the plane, regroup with the Demolition and enter in his Buzzard.

Pilot

The pilot, after collecting the Velum, must take it to Sandy Shores Airfield, but instead of doing this, keep flying around Los Santos and avoid flying into Los Santos County to avoid being chased by P-996 Lazers. Wait until the land team have broke Rashkovsky out of the prison and land on Sandy Shores Airfield to collect the Officer, Prisoner and Rashkovsky. Now fly across the map to lose the wanted level and after this, fly in the indicated area to jump out of the plane and land in a beach in Palomino Highlands. Regroup with the Demolition and enter in his Buzzard.

Once all members of the team are in the Buzzard, return to the city and the heist is complete.

Trivia

  • This mission appears to be a more advanced version of the Online mission Bust Out.
  • Although Agent 14 says that, according to the inmate transfer schedule, there is a prisoner being transported to the prison in the Prison Bus, when the demolition expert hijacks the bus on its way to the prison, there is no prisoner being transported in it.
  • It appears that the drinks that the crew has at the end of the heist represents each persons cut.

Known Bugs

  • After the ground crew gets into the the Velum the pilot is unable to evade the police, it has been reported that players have been trying to evade for up to 2 hours with no success. A potential fix found by one group of players is to fly to the very edge of the ocean, and the pilot should then start to lose the police. The bug can be due to the fact that in free mode a group of 2 people of more in the same vehicle can not evade the police and loose the wanted level until there is only 1 person in the vehicle.
