-Painting Yourself Into a Corner-
On day 1 of the Framing Frame job, steal all sold paintings without being seen.

***Probably HOST unlock ONLY***

First, you must be at least Level 10. You need to put 11 skill points in to the Mastermind Tree. You need to unlock the Dominator skill which allows you to order non-special guards to surrender and handcuff themselves. [**Defrosted Jay points out that if you ACE the Dominator skill, you can order the guards to cuff themselves from the roof, instead of having to wander around inside the building.]

There are always 4 wandering guards plus the guy at the desk that you need to take out (plus cameras of course). The wandering guards can overlap, so be careful and patient. The guy at the desk is special, and therefore *** to order him down you must have the Dominator skill ACED. If you do not have it ACED, you can sneak up on him and melee him and answer the radio. [thanks for clarifying he can be ordered down - King fiShiZ] BE CAREFUL while walking around, there is a random laser doorway that will trip the alarm, do not pass through it.

**It seems 99% of the time you can only make 4 guards cuff themselves. Therefore, you almost certainly have to melee one of them!

Once all 5 guards are neutralized, take out the cameras. There is one camera in each gallery and sometimes one in the lobby/hall area.

Once the guards and cameras are down, you have free reign of the place (don't forget about the laser doorway though).

Now it is time to get the paintings. Beware! Video says 7 paintings, it randomly varies from 6 to 9 so double check everything to make sure you have them all. Pick the front door lock and waltz out with the paintings.


#1 - The lowest difficulty is 4 white dots, but difficulty doesn't really matter if you're stealthing, just make sure you don't pick a pro job, that way if you fail you can restart.

#2 - This seems to only unlock for the host, so you probably want to do this solo. My friend was in game with me the whole time and he did not get it.

#3 - There is NO need to go in the security room, just leave it (and the guy inside of it) alone!

Video shows mission on PS3, but it is exactly the same.
