The Prison Break is the second online heist to be released on GTA Online and it is given to you by Lester Crest who introduces you to Agent 14. The agent wants you and the rest of the crew to to release an ex-military researcher called Maxim Rashkovsky from the Bolingbroke Penitentiary.
There are four heist set up missions before you complete the main heist mission.
Prison Break – Plane
The objective for this heist setup mission is to “Steal an aircraft from the Vagos contraband smugglers at McKenzie Airfield. To be used to get Rashkovsky out of the country after the prison break.”. Agent 14 tells the crew that the Vagos have a Velum 5-Seater plane located at McKenzie Field in Blaine County. They are using this plane to transport drugs across the American border, you need to get this plane so that Rashkovsky can leave the country once you have broken him out of prison.
All you to do is head over to McKenzie Field and kill all of the Vagos there, make sure to wipe out all of the attackers before one of your crew members takes the Velum. Then, the crew member must deliver the Velum to Los Santos International Airport.
Prison Break – Bus
The objective for this heist setup mission is to “Hijack a prison transport bus in a high security convoy for use in the break out. When clear of the authorities, store it near Sandy Shores.”. Agent 14 instructs your crew to steal a prison bus so that you can gain access to the prison to break Rashkovsky out. The bus is currently moving to Paleto Bay transporting a high-level prisoner which means there is a lot of security surrounding the bus.
Once you reach the prison bus, kill the driver but do not damage the bus too much or the mission will fail. Once one of your crew members has taken the bus, all of the crew must lose the wanted level they will receive. Lastly, after the wanted level has been removed, the bus must be driven to Sandy Shores.
Prison Break – Station
The objective for this heist set up mission is “Half of the team has to get a police cruiser, pose as cops, and go into a police station to get the prison transport schedule. The other half has to retrieve Rashkovsky’s stolen car from a cargo ship at the port of LS.” Agent 14 splits you into two teams of two, team one must steal a police car and pose as officers to enter the police station and steal the police bus schedule. After you have grabbed the bus schedule, drive the police car to the underpass by Lester’s warehouse and destroy the vehicle.
Team two has to steal Rashkovsky’s Casco from a container ship in the Port of Los Santos from Kkangpae members. The vehicle is locked inside a container at the top of the stack, the team has to climb up the stack to shoot the container open. Go onboard the ship and kill any gang members in the way, once you have captured the Casco, jump of the ship and escape to the drop off near Sandy Shores whilst causing as little damage to the vehicle as possible.
Prison Break – Wet Work
This is the last heist set up mission needed for the Prison Break heist, the objective for this mission is “Half of the team has to take out some lawyers outside City Hall, and bring back their deposition. The other half has to silently dispatch Rashkovsky’s business partner and his guards.” Agent 14 again splits you into two teams of two, team one must go to City Hall to kill Josh Sherman and Gavin Van Der Loop, two lawyers that are testifying against Maxim Rashkovsky. Team two will go to Richman Glen, to kill Dima Popov, a business associate of Rashkovsky.
Team one has to climb up the ladder that gives them rooftop access to the building next to the City Hall. Go to the vantage point and once the lawyers have arrived, use a sniper rifle to kill the Sherman and Van Der Loop when they get out of the cars which are both a black Schafter. After you have shot them both, kill the cops that are in your way, go to their bodies to retrieve their deposition and lastly lose the cops.
Team two has to assassinate Popov and the bodyguards that are surrounding him. If any of the guards spot you they will alert Popov and he will escape, use weapons which have the suppressor attachment and act stealthy to complete this mission. After you have killed Popov, return to the planning room to meet the rest of your crew.
City Hall Team
Agent 14 calls you in and explains that the death of Rashkovsky’s partners have brought him unwanted attention and a price on his head. There are four different roles and you must work together as a team to gain access into the prison, escape with Rashkovsky and assist him in leaving the country on a Velum plane.
As the pilot, you must first drive to the Velum located at Los Santos International Airport and fly it to the Sandy Shores airfield where you will collect Rashkovsky and the ground team. Once you have collected your team, you must fly Rashkovsky to the drop zone where you will parachute out of the Velum with your team and regroup at the beach before returning to the city.
As the demolition, you must first steal a prison bus and use that to get to the Sandy Shores Airfield where you need to destroy it using sticky bombs. Next, further down the airfield there is a Buzzard helicopter that you need to steal and use that to protect the Velum being used to get Rashkovsky out of the country. Once successfully done, regroup with your team mates on the beach before returning to the city.
As the prisoner, you must first get in the stolen prison bus located in Sandy Shores so that yourself and the prison officer can gain access to the prison. Once the prison officer has parked inside the prison, you must push your way through heavy armed security and NOOSE to collect Rashkovsky and break him out of the prison. Once you have escaped the prison, you must assist with transporting Rashkovsky to the Sandy Shores airfield where the Velum is waiting for you.
After all team members and Rashkovsky enter the plane and once you are about to leave San Andreas, you will parachute out of the plane and regroup with the rest of your team on the beach before returning to the city.
As the prison officer, you must first collect the prison bus in Sandy Shores and then drive it into the prison where you will park it and leave the bus with the prisoner. You will then start making your way through the prison whilst taking fire from NOOSE and the prison security.
Once you have cleared all security inside the prison, you will escape with Rashkovsky using a police van and cover the driver whilst he drives to the Velum. You and the rest of your team get in the Velum and fly Rashkovsky to the drop zone. All of your team will parachute off the plane and regroup on the beach before returning to the city.
