Heists are and have always been an integral part of GTA Online. After all, the underworld empire cannot survive on minor crimes and meager rewards.
The Diamond Casino Heist is so popular for a number of reasons, but the most important reason is perhaps its level of difficulty. Grinding the mission is no joke, and even after days and days of careful planning, the success is not a guarantee. There are all sorts of stakes attached to the robbery. The crew could bust the whole thing. The cops might overpower the team. And worst of all, the player may manage to pull the heist off for a paltry reward.
Given how complex GTA Online missions can get, especially missions that are supposed to give the player a hard time, the Diamond Casino Heist requires a good deal of investment – both monetary and intellectual.
While there are a number of ways to approach the Diamond Casino Heist in GTA Online, some strategies are unanimously agreed upon to be more efficient in nature and promising in terms of results.
What is the highest paying approach in the Diamond Casino Heist in GTA Online?
There are 3 strategies that the player could use for the Diamond Casino Heist in GTA Online:
- The Silent and Sneaky Approach
- The Big Con Approach
- The Aggressive Approach
The Silent and Sneaky Approach is quite self-explanatory. It allows the player to infiltrate the casino while keeping a low profile and avoiding unwanted attention. Remember the cops are always on the lookout for something suspicious.
The Big Con Approach is not only super efficient (given the perilous nature of GTA Online), but it's also quite fun. It allows the player to infiltrate the casino in disguise. This approach, too, helps the player avoid unwanted attention and keep a low profile, which is always helpful in GTA Online.
One way to ensure an easy time in the Diamond Casino Heist is to pay attention when scoping it out. The Gruppe Secchs outfits, for instance, in The Big Con approach makes things far easier, as well as the NOOSE outfits. The trick is to always invest in the best hacker available, as it guarantees extra time in the vault, which is the trick to making more money during the Heist.
Plus, regardless of the final approach players take, scoping out major access points is key. For instance, while the staff entry works just fine for The Big Con, scoping out the Sewer that connects directly to the vault is great for the Aggressive Approach.
Maximum potential payout of each target:
- Cash: GTA$ 2,115,000
- Artwork: GTA$ 2,350,000
- Gold: GTA$ 2,585,000
- Diamonds: GTA $3,619,000
As an additional way to make sure the payout is always good, after players have attempted the heist a couple of times, getting a decent target is key. Cash is not as valuable as Gold or Artwork, and if players can afford to do the setups again, they can consider canceling the Heist each time they get Cash as the target.
