GTA Online: What's in The Doomsday Heist?

From IGN - December 12, 2017

This page contains information on the missions, vehicles, properties and upgrades available in the Doomsday Heist update for GTA Online.

The Doomsday Heist is the 20th major update for Grand Theft Auto Online. It centers around a three-act story, with each act being (essentially) one large heist mission. Each mission will require preparatory missions, advanced setup missions and finally the act's finale.

In addition to the three new heist / story missions, the update includes:

EditDoomsday Heist Missions

The Doomsday Heist has three "acts," each of which requires players to prepare and setup for, then execute a complicated multi-part heist mission. Players registered as a CEO, VIP or MC President can launch these missions. The breakdown of the mission parts are as follows:

EditPrep Missions

Preparation missions require the Heist Leader and a crew of two to four players (or 8, if they are an MC president with a full club) to procure certain assets that are needed to complete the Setup and Heist missions.

These work similarly to Gunrunning, Smuggling, MC or Import/Export missions - the players must collect the assets while in freeroam mode and get them back to their base to ready them for the mission. Any other players in the session who also need these supplies will be notified that this item is being moved, and may attempt to steal it for themselves.

If you do not want to bother with all that and have deep enough pockets, you can also purchase the necessary items instead of stealing them.

EditSetup Missions

These missions are more structured and do not take place in free roam. Similar to the setup missions in the original Heists update. They will feature specific objectives related to the finale heist, and can be completed in any order. The crew leader will not receive compensation for these missions, but the other members of their team will.

EditHeist Finales

These are the culmination of all of your preparation and setup missions. You and your three teammates will need to be in constant communication and work together to complete all parts of these complex, multi-faceted missions.
