The Prison Break heist is the second series of missions added to GTA Online as part of the 2015 “Heists Update.” It’s got a four-person finale with a thrilling airplane getaway, as well as lots of action that’ll put your skills and teamwork to the test.

If you’re trying to practice up for the big Cayo Perico heist coming next month, the Prison Break heist’s a fantastic way to hone your skills.

According to GTA Boom, the maximum take for the Prison Break heist is $200,000 on easy difficulty, $400,000 on normal, and $500,000 on hard.

The setup cost is $40,000.

If you’re playing on hard, you can expect a cut of $125,000 or so. If it’s your first time completing the Preak Break heist, you can earn up to $225,000.

If you want to earn a little more for your hard work, consider checking out the Pacific Standard heist. That’s a bank robbery that’ll earn your squad $1.25 million on hard mode.

The Cayo Perico heist

“On Tuesday, December 15, GTA Online raises the stakes once again with its biggest update yet: the Cayo Perico Heist, featuring an all-new exotic location and a brand-new approach to heist design that for the first time will let players tackle the entire heist solo or with a crew of up to three other players,” Rockstar said in an email.

“Along with the challenge of finding a way to infiltrate and rob one of the most secure private islands in the world, players can also expect new social spaces to party with friends, new world-class DJs, and radio stations with over 100 new songs, plus a host of vehicles and weapons, a heavily armed submarine HQ, and much more.”

A standalone release of GTA Online is expected to launch in 2021, along with new versions of GTA 5 optimized for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
