Assigning Roles of Different Players
While playing with a crew, always choose your Leader wisely. It’s the job of a Leader to assign different roles to his or her crew. As a general rule of thumb, these roles must be assigned considering players’ strengths and weaknesses in mind.


For instance, a player with a higher score in Flying School must always assume the role of a Pilot. Players with good hacking skills should always take up the role of Infiltrators and same goes for Bodyguards having impressive shooting skills.

Lastly, if you feel that as a Leader, you are more suitable for a role, spend some time using that particular ability to get further improvements.

How to Earn More than $12 Million with Heists
