Grand Theft Auto V begins in 2004 where three bank robbers; Michael Townley, Trevor Phillips and Brad Snider, who are robbing a bank in Ludendorff, North Yankton.
Collect the cash
Follow the yellow blip and lead your crew into the vault, and collect the cash. There is a small amount of cash on the ground - collecting this is optional. Walk to the back of the vault, where a short cutscene will be triggered showing Michael and Trevor stuffing the wads of cash into bags.
Take out the guard
With the cash collected, follow Trevor out of the vault. As Michael exits the vault, a short cutscene will be triggered in which a guard will emerge and unmask him, and take him hostage. When prompted, switch to Trevor and take out the guard. With the guard down, follow your crew out of the vault.
Get to cover
When prompted, take cover behind the boxes. Brad will set the charges to blow open the doors. The crew soon discovers that the cops are on their way. Follow your crew to the back exit. Trevor hits the switch to open the roller door, and a shootout with the cops will
ensueso take cover.
Escape the Cops
As Trevor, clear out the immediate area. Once the first wave of cops is eliminated, you will be given the option of switching between Trevor and Michael. Switch as necessary and continue moving forward, clearing the area as you go.
Tip! Use the Cover system as needed to take out several waves of cops as you make your way to the car.
Get to the car
With the last of the cops cleared, make a dash to the car. A cutscene will be triggered. During the cutscene, a cop car will give chase, and shoot the getaway driver. Michael takes the wheel and rams the pursuing cop car into a tree, to the cheers of both Brad and Michael.
Drive to the helicopter pickup point
Simply follow the road to the pickup point. Around half way to your location, cop cars will be seen travelling in the opposite direction towards where the heist just took place, but because they haven't made the car, they can be safely ignored. Continue driving and when you eventually hit a roadblock; turn right as per the advice Trevor gives and drive towards the train tracks, triggering a cutscene.
Hold off the Cops
During the cutscene, both Michael and Brad are hit by sniper fire. With his crewmates down, it is now up to Trevor to hold off the incoming waves of cops descending on his location. Take cover and eliminate them. Trevor will eventually become overwhelmed, triggering a cutscene showing him making a run for it, followed by Michael watching over his own funeral, and thus ending the mission, and going straight to the next.
