The Doomsday Heist is the newest free expansion for GTA Online and it is one of the biggest updates so far. Here are some helpful tips to get started with the GTA Online: Doomsday Heist DLC.
Buy the Right Underground Facility
The new underground IAA facilitates are one of the big highlights of the new expansion. Consider that you must first buy one of the nine new facilitates at Maze Bank Foreclosures and be CEO to start the Doomsday Heist. The following facilitates are available:
- Land Act Reservoir - $ 2.95M
- Paleto Bay - $ 1.25M
- Zancudo River - $ 2.1M
- Lake Zancudo - $ 1.67M
- Grand Senora - $ 2.525M
- Wind Farm - $ 1.855M
- Sandy Shores - $ 2.74M
- Mount Gordo - $ 1.475M
- Route 68 - $ 2.312M
Now, the Land Act Reservoir seems very convenient facility as it is closest to the city. However, we don’t recommend this facility as it is difficult to access due to its location in the dam area. Especially if you use big new vehicles like the Chernobog, the entry and exit from the facility is very tedious.
Instead, we recommend that you first buy the facilities such as Sandy Shores, Grand Senora or Route 68. They are located in the center of the map, close to the highway and are easily accessible. The perfect starting point for your Heists!
Remove the Wanted Level for Free
In case, if you have wanted level that you want to get rid of then you can call Lester
and ask him to remove your wanted level for a fee. This will cost you $200 per star. This is unnecessary waste of money that you can avoid thanks to the new expansion.
Therefore, we recommend that you complete all new heists in the expansion soon as possible. The reason for this is that you work for the government in the new Heist missions and therefore you get a free ticket, no matter what offenses you committed non in Los Santos.
Speaking of wanted levels, if you already own one of the new facilities, you always have the perfect hideaway from the cops. No matter how many wanted levels you have, just drive into your facility and you're safe. Incidentally, the cheapest facility cost you $ 1.25M and is located in Paleto Bay.
The new Avenger, in turn, is a flying mobile command center that you can buy for $ 3.45M at Warstock Cache & Carry (additional upgrades cost extra). The Avenger can accommodate up to 30 players at the same time and also has the advantage that your wanted stars disappear instantly when you take the wheel.
The Avenger has an autopilot who will take care of flying for you while you are inside, where you can upgrade weapons, among other things.
Open Doors On Personal Vehicles
Actually, a trifle, but it was previously possible only by glitches and tricks to open individual doors or about the rear ramp at Cargobobs and other aircraft and vehicles. With the DLC, you can finally control this yourself, because in the interaction menu of your personal vehicle there is now an option to select and open the individual doors. Thus, for example, other players can get into your Cargobob directly via the loading ramp without much effort.
Involve Strike Teams on Other Players
If you've bought a facility, be sure to buy the weapons room as well. There you’ll find not only weapons and ammunition but also a laptop from which you can control your strike team and send them to hunt down one of your chosen players in the session.
The Strike teams are in different strengths and Level 1 is free for you. Strike teams for $ 2K and $ 5K, respectively, are more heavily armed and make your life even harder.
Upgrades The New Special Vehicles
Thanks to the new expansion, some of the coolest vehicles have now been integrated into the game. Including the jetpack, a DeLorean or an underwater car. The following special vehicles are now available:
- Akula - $ 2.785M or $ 3,704,050 (combat helicopter)
- Avenger - $ 3.45M (Upgrades: Gun - $ 200K | Vehicle Repair Shop - $ 755K | Gun Repair Shop - $ 245K) (Accommodates 30 Players)
- Barrage - $ 1.595M or $ 2,121,350 (buggy with mounted gun in front and behind)
- Chernobog - $ 2.49M or $ 3,311,700 (truck with rocket gun firing heat seeking rifles)
- Deluxo - $ 3.55M and $ 4,721,500 ( upgrades: MG and missiles) (Flying car based on the DeLorean from Back to the Future)
- Khanjali - $ 2.895M or $ 3,850,350 (A tank that can be modified with a rail gun)
- Komacho - Coming soon
- RCV (Riot) - $ 2.35M or $ 3,125,500 (Heavy Armored Transporter)
- Stromberg - $ 2.395M or $ 3,186,350 (sports car, with which you can move underwater like a submarine!)
- Thruster - $ 2.75M and $ 3,657,500 (the long-awaited jetpack!)
- Volatol - $ 2.8M or $ 3,724,000 (fighter jet with mounted gun)
If you want to buy the Avenger with all upgrades, it costs you twice as much as a mobile command center. If that's too expensive, then you can upgrade the new war machine with the MOC (Mobile Operations Center).
You Can Now Save More Outfits!
So far it has only been possible to save ten outfits at once in order to be able to switch quickly between them. With the latest DLC you can now save up to 20 outfits at once.
Get the Comet Safari
Legendary Motorsport has a few new cars on offer and more vehicles that will be unlocked in the next few weeks. These are the new cars:
- Autarch - Coming soon
- Comet Safari - $ 710K
- GT500 - Coming soon
- Hermes - Coming soon
- Hustler - Coming soon
- Neon - Coming soon
- Pariah - $ 1.42M
- Raiden - $ 1.375M
- SC1 - $ 1.603M
- Viseris - Coming soon
- Z190 - Coming soon
Especially the Comet Safari is in our opinion worth the purchase. The sports car is designed for rally performance and can race at high speed over rough terrain. In addition to the usual tuning options you can also attach machine guns. Go to your mobile command center or your Avenger and mount two machine guns for $ 100K.
Get the New Pump Shotgun MK2 with Explosive Ammo!
The new DLC brings six new MK2 variants of weapons. This includes:
- Bullpup Rifle MK2 - $ 105,750
- Marksman Rifle MK2 - $ 149K
- Pump Shotgun MK2 - $ 82.5K
- Revolver MK2 - $ 99K
- SNS Pistol MK2 - $ 79,575
- Special Carbine MK2 – 135K
Here, we would like to recommend to you the MK2-version of the Pump Shotgun. Go to the weapons workbench in your mobile command center or aboard the Avenger and upgrade your pump shotgun to the MK2 variant. What makes this weapon so strong is the explosive ammo you can use to fill it.
This will allow you to shoot cars up at close range with a single shot. So you have a rocket launcher with a straight fire line and a faster rate of fire.
