Bogdan's by far the best, 2 finales, 2 players, 1m every 20 minutes, half the time of Pac

I actually do the math at page 5 and Act 1 is a bit better than Act 2.
Doomsday Heist Acts Base Rewards
Act I: \$650,000
Act II: \$950,000
Act III: \$1,200,000
Doomsday Heist Rewards (Hard Difficulty)
Act I: \$812,500
Act II: \$1,187,500
Act III: \$1,500,000

So,
Act 1 on hard with 2 players gave 690.625 \$ for %85 in 8 minutes,
Act 2 on hard with 2 players gave 1.009.375 \$ for %85 in 15 minutes,

Lets say we have 120 minutes (2 hours);

For Act 1:
120 minutes / 8 minutes = 15 final
15 x 690.625 = 10.359.375 \$

For Act 2:
120 minutes / 15 minutes = 8 final
8 x 1.009.375 = 8.075.000 \$

So the WINNER IS ACT 1

(I didn't do the repetition method, and i never count the times, i do the calculation based of what you said, 8 minutes for act1, 15 minutes for act2)

I would say for your average player that they're more likely to get through Bogdan quickly without any restarts than they're likely to get through Act1 Trust me, i'm a professional

Tip for landing Avenger, it's really easy, when you land in plane mode (propellers forward) it automatically turns them up, just land in plane mode 1 length from hangar, hold L2 down fully while pushing L3 fully forward, verrrrrrrry easy

I agree, but I just made \$1m on Act 2 which isn't bad and honesty is easier than Act 1. Also on Act 1 I can do it with a friend and let him do all the work which is nice and can just AFK. Act 2 as the host I have to do the work which I don't necessary want to do. also the timing on Act 2 is worse and more risky.

You make \$690630 for 85% on act 1...there is no better money making strategy in the game

Fyi if the xbox users havent found out yet here is steps.

Act ll
1. Have finale ready to be played
2. 1-4 players
3. Play finale all the way to the point where you drop off the avenger host lets mini map flash and re appear close application
4. Click start manage game delete save from everywhere
5. Relaunch gta v
6. Stop syncing
7. Play proluge
8. Confirm the agreement for online spawn in you can go start it up again. If it says wait for lester to contact you dont worry you still did the repeat glitch
Enjoy

I had a interesting session with my friend who has an XBOX One (Original, that shouldn't be relevant), but he was struggling to get the calibration screen. I just want to note everyone's sync data is different and you HAVE to find the sweet spot for your data. For mine when I am syncing, it pauses on 14% and it takes 7 seconds to go form 14% to 18%. So I count 6 seconds before cancelling the sync and this by passes the prologue. I am also located up in Canada, so my data could be taking longer to download

In my friends case he is in the southern part of Texas and he was syncing very quickly and there weren't any pauses. In his case it went from 6% to 20% very quickly and wasn't getting the calibration screen. After some testing, his sweet spot was between 12 - 13 seconds. As soon as he sees it starting to syncing, he has to count to 13. If he is a second too long, he doesn't get the calibration screen, if he is a second too short, he gets the prologue.

Find your sweet spot and find the right spot, make sure you get the calibration screen before proceeding.

There are 3 checks you need to make sure you get

1. Get the calibration screen
2. Get the screen where you sign the GTA Agreement
3. Once you login to online, make sure you do NOT get the notification where you have left the previous game.

If any of these steps are not met, do NOT proceed to the heist room as you WILL lose your heist. Quit your game immediately and retry you meet all 3 checks.

Anyone got this to work on PC? I've only managed to play the finale twice and then it restarts (have to do preps + setups again). The method i used was simply disconnecting around when the screen flashes green. Haven't tried deleting save because i've no idea which files to delete and from where... Host didn't receive money either.

Enjoy your ban buddy, C* knows you cheating when you making too much money too fast. You don't need to make that much cash so fast .. enjoy it while it lasts, but don't ill advise others to be doing the same.

Someone here recommended you just stay under \$3m an hour, good advice.

Not sure when you quitting, but you should quit right after you land the plane in the hangar and all wheels touch the ground. Normally I quit when I see the side of the plane and the animation starts with them getting out of the plane.

You still need to figure out how to clear your cache, as R* has built in a mechanism to detect when you leave a heist and if you the host will kill the heist, so if you back in the lobby and it says you have left a previous game and if you continue you will get bad sports, do NOT enter your heist room, quit your game and try again, this is R*'s way of basically telling you, you going to lose your heist. You will want to enter the session where you don't get that message.

In the animation, the plane must have touched on the ground with all 4 wheels, do not quit until the plane is fully on the ground. Sometimes it looks like the plane is down because the yellow circle disappears. As soon as it is down, the animation will start and you will see the side of the plane and them climbing out. When you see this, you may quit.

This is act 1 thread. Whats up with the plane?

And there are no bans for this. Don’t mislead people.
Lots of people selling 2 deluxos back to back and make 5.660.000\$ in 1 minute.
You can play in unlimited number of players act 1 final mission as a second player.
People repeating pacsta for over 2 years and nothing happens, no bans, no money wipes.

Sorry this is Act 1, so for Act 1 it is when the screen turns white, right after you finished shooting and destroying all the trucks and cards outside the station.
For Act 2, it is after then the plane lands and all 4 wheels touch the ground.

I think it should be changed to clearing your cache after every time. I completed Act II yesterday, and closed GTA just as the screen flashed green. But, upon restarting, I got the phone call from Lester post completing the Bogdan Problem.

Also: When clearing the cache, do I only delete the local save, or delete from everywhere? I'm guessing local, as choosing everywhere will delete the Story Mode save.

Read my comment on what you have to do with XBOXES a few pages back, I assume you on PC, but the same concept applies.

Yes delete your local cache as well, in xbox we DELETE ALL, which is both.

You must get the calibration screen, else you will lose your heist, you must sign the agreement and you must not get the message saying you left a previous game, you must meet these 3 checks else do NOT enter your heist room else you will lose your heist. The calibration screen is important.

Not sure what green screen you referring to, must be a PC thing .. but for Act 1, as soon as you done shooting, the screen turns white or perhaps green in your case. Only the host quits.

You must then clear your cache and make sure you get the calibration screen (not sure how you do this on PC), but you need to figure this out.

Once you syncing, only allow it to sync between 6-18%, the closer you get to 18%, the less chance you have to to play the prologue. I sync at the long end of 14%, my friend has to do it exactly at 13%, yours might be different, could be 6%, could be 20%, you have to test it.
