xQc previously attempted to heist the Lower Vault of the Pacific Standard Deposit Bank, but this ended with him scuffing the final puzzle and thus unable to enter the Vault room. His unsuccessful run would not appear to have deterred him from trying again, however, with his most recent attempt being a massive success. Beyond uncovering heaps of cash, xQc discovered a silver suitcase and you won’t believe what he found inside.
How did xQc manage to successfully heist the Lower Vault?
After destroying the Los Santos power station and turning off the power to the entire city, xQc and his gang proceeded to breach the bank after rounding up a large group of hostages. While the criminal gang on the upper floor of the bank negotiated for extra time with the police, xQc and another gang member proceeded to crack various puzzles to gain access to the Lower Vault.
After grapple hooking over to the first gate of the Lower Vault, xQc cracked the 5 slot 5-number puzzle on just his second attempt, citing “I finished on a ‘rectangle rectangle’ and I didn’t even break a sweat”.
He then proceeded to complete a puzzle that he’s never seen before, which comprised a 6 slot 6-number puzzle. He failed his first attempt at one of the final stages, citing “I’ve never seen this hack before and I did four of them and it’s a six-slot, I f***ing had it”, adding “I thought the puzzle was over and I stopped thinking”.
For those who don’t know, these puzzle challenges are incredibly difficult. 5-number puzzles are already notoriously difficult, compared to the usual 4-number puzzles seen at smaller Fleeca banks. So the fact that he managed to nearly complete a 6-number puzzle on his first attempt is massive.
After eventually completing the 6-number puzzle to the doors of the Lower Vault room on his second attempt, he entered and proceeded to crack the last puzzle to open the vault. This involved remembering a 12-digit sequence of numbers, which he completed by snapping a photo with his phone. Upon receiving the codes to the Vault, xQc was left frustrated by being unable to open the Lower Vault.
Failing to open the Lower Vault after interacting with it by various means, xQc thought that the Vault may be scuffed. He subsequently considered quitting but later managed to open the Lower Vault after throwing C4 explosives at it.
Unexpectedly, the Lower Vault managed to open and he proceeded to open the gates and rob its contents.
What did xQc find in the Lower Vault?
Despite the fact that the Lower Vault was completely scuffed (presumably because of the C4 explosive), xQc managed to bag around $3 million in marked bills. xQc later added that he could have come away with more, after losing $600,000 to the scuffed Vault room.
In addition to the money, xQc also found a silver briefcase with the engraving “Blueprints to the Casino“ on it. Unfortunately, he has not managed to open the contents of the briefcase as of yet, but we're sure he'll figure it out soon.
He speculated that the Casino may hold safety deposit boxes, which could hold valuable treasures that we could see him later try to rob. xQc is the first person to successfully heist the Lower Vault and we can't wait to see what he has planned next.
In case you missed it, we definitely encourage you to check out the full VOD in the video below. The heist attempt may just be better than any heist movie we’ve ever seen. xQcL smile.
