Recently a reader asked what heists are best for their money/XP rates and another commented “Cook Off” and… okay, he’s right. If you only care about money and XP, you really should just play Cook-off over and over. But that’s boring after a while. Instead, here are a couple of heists that I like to keep in my back pocket for quick XP. They don’t have the most experience, but they have the easiest experience to get. After all, the whole point is to make things easy. So today we’re covering five heists that give easy XP!

1. Four Stores

Four Stores is absolutely the easiest heist in the game if you play it correctly. Just boot up Overkill difficulty, bring an ECM, break an ATM and then get the hell out of there. I like to blitz through it to get that stealth bonus for whatever heist you do next. Speaking of stealth bonus,

2. Election Day

Election Day is the easiest heist where you can get a 20% stealth bonus quickly. See, on day 1 four of the trucks will have duplicates, so you can ignore them, meaning you have a fifty percent chance of tagging the right truck if you blitz in and out. And the second day doesn’t require carrying any bags. Speaking of stealth days that don’t require carrying any bags:

3. Golden Grin Casino

I guess this heist does make you carry one bag, but what’s cool about Golden Grin is that all of those bags in the basement of the casino do not add to your experience, so you can get in, grab the dentist’s loot, and get out. But if you’re not afraid to go loud:

4. Hoxton Breakout

Hoxton Breakout is my personal favorite heist in the game and my favorite heist for farming XP and money, because there’s only one bag–the server–to carry at the very very end. Other than that, you just have a bunch of linear, very easy to accomplish objectives. But even quicker is number 5:

5. Safe House Raid

You should do Safe House Raid whenever it pops up every week, because in addition to the XP and money you receive –granted, you will not receive that much money– but you get six Continental coins automatically. In the early game, Continental coins are hard to come by so it’s a great heist for farming those out. Anything you can farm early on is worth doing.

6. Crime Spree

Bonus number six is Crime Spree. If you’ve already hit level 100 and aren’t looking forward to
doing it again, level up a crime spree to around five hundred and fifty then go infamous, cash in your crime spree, and you can hit level 100 really quickly without having to go through the grind a second, or, 24 more times.
(Author’s note, with the new Infamy 3 update, this trick has been patched and is no longer usable. Which is a shame because it’s a great trick.)

And there we go! As always, thank you for reading, have a great day and keep those helmets flying!
