Approach selection

After discovering the contents of the vault, you will be able to choose one of three approaches to the heist: Silent & Sneaky, The Big Con, or Aggressive.

The Silent & Sneaky approach will allow you to enter the casino and get rid of the guards with complete discretion, as long as you stay on and don't make yourself heard by the other guards.
The Big Con approach will use disguises that allow you to break into the Casino, but not all guards will be fooled.
The Aggressive approach will be the most violent, equipped with heavy weapons you will kill the guards without states of heart to arrive at the vault.

The approaches have three possible statuses:

  • Without post-it: Heist is available on normal difficulty
  • Post-it padlock: The heist is unavailable because you have just completed this approach
  • Skull Post-it: The heist is available in hard (possible after completing the heist approach, then another approach to remove the Skull Post-it), this approach provides higher gains due to its difficulty.
Tips !

Once the three approaches are completed, you will be able to unlock the ability to phone Lester and cancel the heist to change the contents of the vault, you will lose the $ 25,000 in initial costs by canceling the heist.

Tips and tricks

  • Enter through the arcade room garage to get to the heist preparation room more quickly.
  • If you don't like the content of the vault and if you have completed all the 3 approaches, you can call Lester and cancel the heist to change the content of the vault. You will lose the $25,000 initial fees by canceling the heist.
  • It is possible to tune the getaway vehicles once the recovery mission is completed. Enter the vehicle in the basement of the arcade room to tune it.
  • During the heist you can also grab some extra cash from the secret vault, which is on the ground floor right next to the elevator. The switch to open up the secret vault door is in the CCTV room next to the elevator. You can expect somewhere between $20,000 to $100,000 to be in there.
    You can grab this vault content twice during the Silent & Sneaky approach, once on your way to the main vault and once on your way back up to the exit.

The Big Con is one of the three possible approaches that have been integrated into the Casino Heist mission in GTA Online for quite a while, along with the others respectively named the 'Silent and Sneaky' and the 'Aggressive' approach. In this article, we’ll shed light on the GTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist The Big Con as well as some optimal setups to navigate through it without wasting too much time.

Table of Contents

About theGTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist The Big Con

Frankly speaking, the Big Con approach revolves around a special scenario, in which players disguise themselves to gain access to the Casino’s basement and steal the loot. At the end of the heist, players can optionally choose to take advantage of a new disguise to shy away from the guards during the getaway or even fight for an escape.

Gta casino heist setup

The Big Con approach is no doubt different from the other aforementioned approaches as this method comes with a unique entry in exchange for maintaining their cover. Once you fail to keep your disguise any longer, you must switch to a more aggressive method!

Note that the Ceramic Pistol will be the secondary weapon by default in all weapon loadouts in the Big Con, making sure that you’ll bypass the metal detectors without a hitch.

Bonus: When using the Bugstars disguise, Lester mentions that he had 'pulled something similar to take down a jewel store.' This references The Jewel Store Job, particularly the Smart approach, thereby making it the canon approach.

GTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist The Big Con - Vault

When you and your crewmates succeed in getting your hands on the vault, you have to drill the door locks to open it then get the loot as soon as possible. Try to not trigger the failsafe or you’ll activate the nerve agent in return.

If undetected, you’ll have more time to handle the vault but your crew has to deal with Level 3 security locks to open the doors inside the vault.

Bonus: What is the difference between the Level 1 and Level 2 security passes?

Level 1 is actually useless. In addition, Level 2 cards allow you to enter through all the doors without the need to hack them. With Level 1, you will need to hack doors to get through them. It makes your heist much easier especially if you are doing a silent and sneaky approach.

Soon afterward, you have to get out of the vault as well as the casino. Just try your best to avoid being noticed by the guards and the police as they’re all alerted.

GTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist The Big Con - Exit Points

Players are allowed to decide how to exit the casino through one out of the five entry points from the remaining approaches. For instance, if you opt for the helipad or roof terrace exit point, you’ll be on the lookout for Parachutes at these places.

Otherwise, players can choose to enter the laundry room if they’re remaining undetected. The crew can equip themselves with either the NOOSE uniform (in case you’ve had the NOOSE Gear prep completed) or the High Roller set (if you’ve obtained the 54 Playing Cards).

The laundry room is also where the crew can find the main weapons, which are based on specific loadouts. It’s time to escape without drawing attention from the guards.

The outside area is now surrounded by NOOSE and LSPD officers, so the players must avoid them by all means to not only move towards the getaway vehicles but also get rid of the current wanted level.

If all the crewmates cannot remain undetected, they’ll instead have to face off against the police. To complete the Casino Heist, the crew needs to drive to the buyer’s location.
