"Petty crimes, hustling and stealing cars can only get you so far in Los Santos. To score big, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor will work together to pull off grand heists - big, multi-part missions that require careful preparation, recruiting, and precise (and often explosive) execution. Cash is king in GTA V, and while there will be plenty of ways to acquire and spend it, heists are the way to earn the big bucks."
GTA V Website

Heists are elaborate story missions in first introduced in Grand Theft Auto Vice City, in The Job. There are two in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, one in Grand Theft Auto IV in Three Leaf Clover and six in Grand Theft Auto V. There are 11 missions spread across the series, each requiring careful preparation and execution. If you successfully complete these jobs, you can earn millions of dollars. In GTA V, the ability to replay these missions also exists.

Overview

Heists, in the conventional term, have appeared in several Grand Theft Auto games as straightforward missions, but take on a bigger dimension in Grand Theft Auto V. In Grand Theft Auto V the major heists typically begin with a meeting of the three protagonists: Michael De Santa, Franklin Clinton, and Trevor Phillips. The player is presented with options on how to approach the proposed mission. For example, you could enter a building stealthily from the roof, or burst through the front door. The complex missions require the help of specialists. These are drivers, gunmen, or hackers. You have cheap and expensive options, however the drawback to hiring an expert is they demand a bigger cut of the take, but picking a crew member taking smaller cuts means they might not be as good until they are used. Once you have some clear objectives and hire the specialists you require, you must perform a series of sub-missions. These include: stealing vehicles which carry equipment being used for the job (like weaponry, knockout gas, intercepting vehicles or emergency vehicles for disguising the player), finding a place to stash the Getaway Vehicle, and buying some suits and masks to wear during the heist. An achievement/trophy will be unlocked for each heist when completed.
