This guide is for players who are looking to complete this achievement solo; however, some of the tasks can be simultaneously completed by a group.

Heist: Golden Grin Casino
Difficulty: Any(Can even be done on normal)
Perk Deck: I used burglar
This is a basic Stealth Build

Notable Skills
Enforcer-Transporter (Aced)
Technician-Hardware Expert, Drill Sergeant and Kickstarter(All Aced)
Ghost-Sixth Sense(Aced), Cleaner, Nimble(Aced), ECM Overdrive, ECM Specialist(Aced), Parkour

Okay so to start off with an explanation for the skills. You will want to make sure that your movement speed is pretty solid and that your drills are as fast and efficient as possible to save time. Now, I have recommended Kickstarter to save time when drilling. You can simply melee the drill when it's broken and there is a pretty good chance of it starting back up. Finally, Sixth sense is to ensure you can buy the assets to avoid some pesky RNG.

Another simple yet not obvious tip is to just shoot the locks on wooden doors. This can save you a solid amount of time while going through the level.

Speaking of assets, these will be the ones that will help you out the most.
Surveillance>Spycam> Employees Only Area X2
Insider Help>Unlocked Doors>Employees Only Area
>Unlocked Cage Doors>Employees Only Area
>Guitar Case Position> Pool Area(Specifically the top left option)
>Disable Metal Detectors>Casino Inside
Backup>Heartbreaker Annie>VIP Room
Additional Mission Equipment>Vault Gate Keychain>Added to Inventory
And thats all 15 favours well spent. Now it's time for the actual heist.compute

Right off the bat you're in front of the casino. But one thing is missing. Your masks! Yes you are in civvie mode so head to that guitar case you placed so strategically. You don't need to worry about guards right now as you won't be detected in civvie mode. So head to the icon placed by Bain for your gear. Once at the location pick up your gear and don't forget the sleeping gas Bain left for you! Note that since you have your gear, you can be detected in casing mode so watch out.

Now that you have your gear head to the employees only area, making sure that you are still in casing mode. Head to the Archives room. The names are listed above the doors, so it will be quite simple to find. Once inside, shoot that door open and start searching those files. Note that on some difficulties there will be a civilian inside so you may need to pop an ECM and tie them up out of the view of the cameras. Some of the files may be hard to reach due to the camera location so taking care of them while the ECM is still active will help you out.

Now that you've got those files, head to the marked IT room and scan said files. Once they're scanned and sent to Bain, pick up that USB chip and get ready to head for reception desks. Crouch jumping all the way there on the sidelines will help save you some hassle. There are 4 locations for the computer to be, so shoot those doors and find it quick. You may end up with a receptionist in the same room and once the USB is in, they may get alerted, so just zip-tie them and retrieve the USB when it is ready. You can leave the receptionist there as nobody enters the room, and ensure that she is out of sight.

Now head back to where you scanned the files and put the USB into a computer. You'll have to find the VIP, which is most often guy in the purple shirt. Head towards the area where you got your gear and he will be near the slots, and you will need to spike his drink. So take a good look at that bottle because you are going to need to find it's twin. It can be in one of three bars on the map. There are two on the ground floor and one upstairs. The bottle will be in one of these locations and you'll need to pick it up and spike it. Once you find it, make sure you aren't able to be detected as it does take a moment or two to pick up. Now head back to the slots where the innocent drink is waiting to become poisoned and spike it.

Now wait in the bathroom until he walks in and take him out. I'd recommend killing him while nobody can see to avoid any issues. Make sure you bag the body, pick up that keycard and pay attention to Bain telling you the room number.

The rooms will be upstairs so head there and find your room. Once inside, put that sleeping gas through the vents and head right back downstairs for the vault code.

First, to the VIP room where Heartbreaker Annie is keeping the Pit Boss busy and his golden briefcase is conveniently on the bar counter. Get that number then head for the employees only area right after. Open up the manager's office and head for the back room where you will see a painting. Pick up the painting and start up your drill on the safe hidden behind it. While that is going, head to the Security room right across from the Manager's Office and start disabling those lasers. Once again, while waiting for that, head to the locker room(in the employees only area). Be aware that there is usually a guard stationed in the room immediately before the lockers so you will want to be careful. Now start opening those lockers in search for a golden briefcase for your second number. Once you get that number from the numerous lockers head back to the manager's safe where you will find that the third and final golden briefcase is being held.

Now that you have those three numbers head into the security room and down towards the vault. If you did not remember the numbers that you found, have no fear because Bain will be there to remind you. Enter those digits in manually and get ready to feast your eyes on the dentist's loot behind a door that requires a drill! Now, if you have those recommended skills, your drill should take 42 seconds minimum.

Once your drill is through head inside and be ready to dodge some lasers. Watch the pattern and stay crouched. Ensure that you move through the lasers when the bottom two are empty. Just go quick and you should be fine. Now pick that loot up and repeat the process to get out. After you're out of the vault, head to the loot drop off point in the delivery room and escape! It's that simple my friends.

On my successful run I had completed the heist in 12 minutes, and as they say "Practice makes perfect."

Good luck, Gang!
