Welcome to The EZ Guide to the Doomsday Heists and the Criminal Mastermind challenges, here you will find "ez" methods for each of the Doomsday set ups and heists
 
Each method will be explained using custom screenshots, gifs, and brief text descriptions. Below you will find some general tips for the Doomsday heists, then each set up and heist in order. To keep things simple the descriptions have been placed in spoiler boxes, simply click to open.
 
While the Doomsday Heists are tougher than the classic heists, and often rely on brute force rather than tactics, there are still plenty of tips and tricks to keep you a step ahead and help rake in the significant profit to be had.
 
Each of these strategies are based on two players, with instructions for third and fourth players when needed. If there are no third or fourth players mentioned work in teams of two
 
Tips for the criminal mastermind can be found at the bottom of the set up, under "Mastermind tip"
 
As always, please feel free to post any questions, comments or suggestions below, and enjoy!
 
Cheers

The guide to the classic heists can be found here 
 
You can find this guide, via the classic guide, by googling "ez heists"
 
Doomsday
 
These heists are tougher, and as the heavy vests no longer do anything, they are geared more towards higher level players, level 60 for normal and level 100 for hard
 
Doomsday Preps
 
Each setup requires a small mission to be done before hand, called a Prep. These can range from very to quick to quite long, and while they can be bought to skip them this is not recommend as the preps for act 1 alone cost over $400k, the equivalent of a 40% cut in the final. Deaths on preps do not affect the cm challenge and their order does not affect the all in order challenge 
 
These must also be done in a public (but not necessarily populated) session. You will find some tips about preps at the start of each section
 
Once they are done, take your team to an invite only session and launch the jobs from there (from the single player > press start > online > play gta online > invite only)
 
The Criminal Mastermind
 
As before, completing all heists in order, on hard, without dying, with the same team will get you a bonus, but this time it's much more risk, for much less of a reward. Completing it with 2 players gets you a kick in the teeth of £750k, with 3 players an insulting £1.75 mill, and with 4 (the easiest possible option) gets you a still not really worth it, £3.75 mill. Only consider a cm run if you are a top level player with access to the bunker upgrades
 
The "Minigun Npc" Bug
 
Remember that time you had full health and armour and yet you were taken out in half a blink of an eye, it's a bug. Connection issues can causes npc's to fire more bullets than they ought to be able to do, resulting in your instant death. On an everyday heist it's a minor annoyance, but on a cm run it's devastating. The only real solution is to stay in cover as much as possible

ACT 2: The Bogdan Problem

 

Act 2 contains some of the toughest setups, but also some of the easiest. With the right tools, namely a thermal scope and a custom insurgent pick up, things go a lot smoother

ACT 3: The Doomsday Scenario - Set ups

 

This is it, the big one. Time to get paid.....and save the world too, I guess

 

All the difficulty in this heist comes at the beginning and at the end, with the first set up and the final being the only real challenge, everything in between is very easy when done right. If you have low level friends this is a great way to get them an easy £200k

 

A Brief Word About Juggernauts

 

During the first set up and final heist you will encounter juggernauts, they're big, armoured, carrying a minigun and can deal a huge amount of damage, but they are far from invincible. The key tactic to employ turning them, one player draws their fire, the other puts them down. If you're drawing fire be sure you are in good cover and not near the edge as their miniguns are (hopefully) bugged.

 

If you're putting them down a number of things work well, sticky bombs, rpgs, miniguns, explosive shotgun shells , explosive sniper rounds, incendiary rounds, grenade launcher rounds (can be bounced round corners) and good old fashioned bullets to the head

 

Ultimately how you deal with them depends on your level and your equipment. Above all keep them at range, heal before, or even during fights,  and find a way that works for you

ACT 3: The Doomsday Scenario - The Final

 

It's the final countdown

 

This is a very tough heist, but with patience, communication, snacks, and the right plan, you can get it done. If you're playing on hard, bring three or four people and sacrifice that extra £50k to use the tank. 

 

The guide is split into three sections, tunnels, hack, and escape

I knew it. I knew people were gonna use the Khanjali more than the Barrage for the Act 3 Finale for CMM. (Since it's superior in every way compared to the Barrage)
