Heist: Yacht Heist
Difficulty: Overkill

Okay, so like other achievements, this achievement will most likely glitch on you, so I will provide solo tips here. If you attempt this with any partners, this will be nowhere near as frustrating as solo can be. You can divide the work into floors and give everyone jobs so it is far easier co-op.

But when it comes to solo, the stars need to align, you have to be on your A-game and you can hardly kill any officers. The amount of time a pager takes is far too long to consider killing guards as a viable strategy for this achievement. I'd say you can kill 1 guard maximum, but even then you will be cutting it close.

The basics of this heist revolve around the laptop that you need to use. There are 5 different locations for the computer that I have encountered. 2 on the bottom floor, 0 on the first floor, 2 on the second floor, and 1 on the top floor. Once the password is entered, the computer will provide locations of the individual stashes. You will then need to secure all 8 bags and arrive back at the computer to open the server room within 3:45-4:00 mins. If you have this much time when you arrive at the server room, you have a good chance of making it.

Tip: Pause the game to memorize/write down the locations and plan your route in your mind. It really does help

Sidenote: Shoot doors to unlock them! It saves about 4 seconds per door!

The server room is quite simple, just watch for the guards and be patient and ready to hit those buttons once everything is overheated. You cannot place an ECM jammer while the override needs to take place. This will prevent the buttons from being pressed for 25 seconds. Just don't do it.

If you are confused by any of this, check out the video below to gain a proper understanding of the level and what takes place.

I'll try and provide insight into the separate floors and most optimal stash locations that I found.

-Bottom floor: Only two guards: One in the kitchen, one in the main area. Easy to avoid as long as you're aware. Usually only get 1 stash of money on this floor, which is often in the fridge.

-First floor: There are multiple roaming guards on this floor. I do not recommend killing any of them. The optimal stash locations for this floor are inside of the lifeboat capsules, inside of the rooms and inside of the aquarium. The cigar and wine room isn't that bad, but it has no windows close by to secure the cash and consumes a good amount of time. You can get 3 different stash locations at once in this level.

-Second Floor: There are about the same amount of roaming guards on this level as there are on the first floor. The best locations for this floor are the aquariums. The food carts aren't that bad either, but they can spawn all over the place where as with the aquariums they are in the same locations.

-Top floor: Maximum two guards on this level from what I've found. One inside, one outside. The best stash location I have found is the food cart outside (on the left side if heading outside). It is right near the ledge and can make for some quick securing of loot.

All that being said. Watch out for civilians. They can mess up your runs. The only pro of these civilians is that you can kill them and bag them quite quick. They are usually paired with another civvie, so keep 2 bags on you if possible.

Did you read all that? You probably won't get under 6 minutes first try because you watched the video and read what I have laid out for you. You will get this achievement through practice. practice. practice. The reason everyone says practice makes perfect is because it's true. Just remain patient and try your hardest to knock this achievement out.

Good luck going for this achievement all! It is certainly not the easiest achievement in this game.

Here is a video walkthrough for those who may like one.
