Heists and Canon Approaches

Good news: Rockstar has finally announced the canon approach of The Jewel Store Job: Smart -> During the setup mission for the Big Con approach of The Diamond Casino Heist, if the player has chosen to steal a Bugstars van and it's equipments (instead of other optional disguises that the player can choose), Lester will tell the protagonist that he is "familiar" with these stuff and actually "used" one before, then he mentions the Smart variant of the jewelry heist by saying "a jewel store". This definitely confirms that the canon approach for the first heist is Smart.

I'll be in touch after I finished my project on the other Heists, then I will write them here.

Guys so sorry bumping this thread but I noticed something weird that fits perfectly in this subject.

 

When going as Michael to Trevor's house to start the Merryweather heist mission, a cutscene for the Offshore plan immediately plays without me being given the option first to choose from Freight or Offshore. It's as if Trevor already made that choice for you.

 

Anyone else experienced this?

Shouldn't you have already chosen your approach in the end of "Scouting the Port" mission? Do you mean your game skipped this mission?

You're completely right, it was a long time ago I did that Scouting the Port mission until I started the Merryweather Heist so I totally forgot I already made that choice. 🤦‍♂️

End of the Topic

 

Finally, in the latest GTA Online update which is The Diamond Casino Heist, which takes place in 2019, (Story Mode takes place in 2013) we can understand which approach is canon for each Heist in GTA V:

 

1. The Jewel Store Job: Smart

Reason: During the Casino Setup Mission "Bugstars Grear", Lester says: the pest play had worked for me before.

When you do the Casino Heist The Big Con using Bugstars entry, Lester says: we took down a jewel store before with these uniforms.

 

2. The Merryweather Heist: Freighter

Reason: After you complete the heist, regardless of chosen approach, Weazel News radio and Internet article states that the Merryweather container ship sank in the Port of LS.

*Story Mode only*

 

3. *The Paleto Score*

 

4. The Bureau Raid: Fire Crew

Reason: When you choose the Bugstars gear for the Big Con approach for the Casino Heist, it's second setup mission requires you to get a trash truck. If you notice you also wear janitor clothes and Lester says: I've saved these outfits from an old job, you never know (Michael wore janitor clothes during the job).

 

5. The Big Score: Subtle

Reason: When you choose Gruppee Sechs entry for the Big Con approach for the Casino Heist, Lester says: the old Gruppee Sechs con, why do I love saying that?

 

Additional notes: It is somehow confirmed that Packie McReary and Rickie Lukens has been chosen as a crew member during the Story Mode heists, due to Lester's dialouges when you choose them as a heist crew member in the Casino Heist.

 

When you choose Packie, Lester says: the old classical play.

When you choose Rickie, Lester says: his old techno job made him more of an idiot.
