So during the first heist, I picked a weaker gunman as I was going in quiet and wanted a bigger cut for myself.

Predictably, he falls off and drops his loot ($1,400,000). I assumed at the time that this was scripted and I couldn't turn around to pick it up. As a result Michael only came away with $150,000 when I am hearing others got around $800,000!

Since then I have saved it numerous times and done about 6 missions. Is there any way I can go back to the tunnels and pick up his share that was dropped? I fear not.

- How much of a difference does that loss of $650,000 matter in the grand scheme of the game? Do you get just as much for the other heists?

I think I might have to start again... If so, does anyone know if my rock star social club ID will work still?

Thank you :)

Franklin picks it up or someone else sometimes. Im not sure what it depends on. Just start again and pick always best people, you still get 3x more money than others.

Lol the same thing happened to me! From now on I will only pick thee best people for the job. And really don't worry about that first heist too much. There's still loads more ways to make money and not to mention more and bigger heists to do. That first heist is chump change, learn from it and move on I say.

Haha. Yes... The bastard lost balance and wiped out right in front of me. You would have thought he would have been careful as he was carrying $1,400,000 worth of jewellery.


On a serious note - please help if you can... If not I'm starting again :p

there's nothing to help you with, it's over. don't bother starting again you don't need lots of money to play the game, you'll just have to be careful who you pick next time. mission replay is just for fun it doesn't change what happened the first time. i used the cheap lifeinvader hacker and everyone else had good skills, went okay but the alarm went off and he gave me a countdown and i got out of there, i don't know how it is with a skilled hacker though.

lol, noobz thinking it was script, don't you know that GTA missions can turn out in severall different ways? :p

Anyway, my gunman died. I picked the money with Franklin (because i didn't assume that sh*t was scripted) and i got about 650k with Michael and 240K with frank. The getaway driver got 850k and i can't remember about the hacker but it was about the same thing Michael got, i think. The job got like 4,5 million profit, but 2,5 milion was for that other mexican mob douche for the reasons you know...

My guess is that you can't get that money back...

I picked the lousy gunman too. As I decided to go the quiet way, I thought "why the hell do I need an expensive gunman?". And sure enough, he crashed. In the heat of the moment I didn't think about the cash. But after the mission Franklin told me he picked it up, so that was a relief. 

I guess you should either pick expensive people, or pick crappy ones but make sure to collect their share when they kick the bucket.

awesome awesome, this game is too awesome.


I chose the smart way, with the most expensive driver(? i think, i thought franklin was the 'driver' but we all ended up on individual bikes),

cheapest gunman, and most expensive hacker.


I think the most expensive hacker yielded a huge timeframe within the store to get all the jewels, and before you know it we were all loaded with 4.5 million. then we leave on the bikes and run from the cops.


the cheapest gunman i hired crashed right before the tunnel entrance off the highway, but i simply rode over it as frankin, not knowing what the f*ck was going on frantically, and he automatically picked the back up for me! yeah boy.


in the end I only earned 700k for michael! Maybe I should stick to the cheaper people, you guys were making way more than that!

You don't have to hop off the bike to grab the dudes share that fell, just drive over it.  Worked for me.



Also, if you want more money in the long haul with success, invest in the cheaper crew. They level up quite fast, and their share does not go up with their skill.

I completed this heist, and Franklin picked up the loot, but neither Michael or Franklin has any more money. Michael has $5,000 to his name, and Franklin has like $3,000.


I also haven't gotten word back that Lester was able to sell the diamonds, so I'm assuming that's why, but I've played several other missions since, (I'm now Trevor) and still didn't get the cake.


I'll just be patient I suppose.

Exact same thing happened to me and it has far reaching implications. Im f*ckin strapped for cash now at 50% into the story and still no other major heists to make any decent coin. Pretty annoyed to say the least.

There is a guide here on the forums on what to do and how to do it...Youre going to make serious cash in the Stock Market with this guide...


Rockstar for some genius reason made it so you HAD to invest money to make serious money regardless of heists yet failed to make it very evident how to do it or when and where.


The times they do mention it....its after youve started a mission and makes it extremely hard to invest as all three characters.

I wouldnt worry about it. The heist that will come later on will give you a lot of money and will more than make up for it

Yea.  I started over.  the first time I did the heist I hired good crew members and got paid pretty well.  The second time around I hired crappy crew members and the cuts turn out to be just horrible.

I picked it up with franklin, well to be honest I braked picked it up and then failed but the checkpoint started me in the tunnel with it. I don't get why I have to pay 200,000 because the dick died- I doubt his family would want his blood money

I started over the 2nd time.... this time chose cheap crew members.  I was riding as franklin when the gunman wipes out and drops money bag.  You have to drive over the crashed bike and you will pickup dropped money bag.  $900K to Michael, $200k to each other crew member.
