Akula (Preparation)

Shane Williams

This page is a walkthrough for The Doomsday Heist Preparation Mission, Akula. It’ll navigate you through the necessary steps to acquiring the Akula’s location.

Overview of the Akula Mission.

Infiltrate the control tower at Fort Zancudo to download the location of the Akula Helicopter.

Go to Fort Zancudo / Access the console to download the data

Once you’ve started up the mission, take any car and drive to Fort Zancudo, then enter the Control Tower and take the lift up to the top floor. Upon arrival, press [Right D-Pad] to begin downloading the data.

(1 of 3) Head to the Military Base

After the data has been acquired, make your way back down to ground level whilst taking down the guards, then take your car and leave the Military Base. Lose the cops, then make your way down El Burro Heights.

Steal the Akula

Once you’re at the location of the helicopter, take down the enemies, then take the Akula. You’ll now need to lose the cops which can easily be done by flying up high, then you’ll need to deliver your Akula to the Facility. Like always, you’ll be sending out a global signal, so beware of other players.
