Welcome to The Great Heist

The Great Heist is an online role-playing game and community where the players strive for infamy and fortune in a world of crime and high-stakes heists.

You start the game as a simple thief with empty pockets. Join a crew of smooth criminals or work alone, the choice is yours. Play your cards right and you'll soon be traveling the world leaving a trail of empty bank vaults behind you. The long arm of the law will constantly try to foil your ingenious schemes so try to stick to the shadows or you'll end up in the slammer!

The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you're not logged in. Success in the game is determined by careful strategy and good timing, not by constant online presence. It's perfectly possible to be successful in the game by logging in a couple of times a week to check up on things.

The Great Heist is free of charge and no downloads are necessary to play it. If you can read this you're good to go.

Duffel Bags & Crew Rankings
Server time6/21/2021

As of tomorrow, the loot in your duffel bags will count towards your crew ranking. However, while it remains in your duffel bags it will be worth 20% less than loot stashed in your safe house. We made this change in order to simplify the life for criminals who travel a lot and to reduce the temptation for players to bully/convince the competition to not stash their loot in order to gain a temporary upper hand in the rankings. PvP players who get their duffel bags stolen should also appreciate this change since they won't lose all their points this way.

Stay safe people!

No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks, at least in our neck of the woods. Well, we got no class, and we got no principals, we ain't got no innocence, we can't even think of a word that rhymes. So here's a couple of blasts from the past aimed at the youngsters out there!

Stay safe everyone.
