"Heist is all about pulling off that big job or that perfect score. The criminals are trying to infiltrate a cash-filled vault, and the cops must regulate them. Once the criminals break in, they have to nab two bags of cash and jam out with them back to each of the two base points."

— Official Website Description

Heist is a gamemode featured in Battlefield Hardline.

The objective of the Criminals is to steal loot, which consists of money, and take it back to the escape point. There are two packages for the Criminals to steal, with each package having an escape point that it needs to be brought to in order to win. Law Enforcement officers are there to prevent the Criminals from doing so by depleting all of their tickets by killing or arresting them.

Law Enforcement has unlimited tickets, while the Criminals, by default, have 100 tickets. There is also a time limit. Law Enforcement will win if the Criminals are not able to take both loot packages to both escape points without either running out of time, or losing all of their respawn tickets.

The Criminals will start closer to the location of the loot packages, giving them enough time to set the bombs on the vaults before the cops can arrive. A bomb will have a timer of 30 seconds until it explodes, giving Law Enforcement some time to disarm the bombs.

If a loot package is dropped, it will return to the original place that it was taken from after a certain amount of time, restarting the process all over again. The timer for the loot package to be returned to its original location can be sped up depending on how many players from the Law Enforcement team are near the package, much like in Capture The Flag from Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4.

Following the introduction of the Robbery expansion pack, an overtime "Sudden Death" setting was added to the gamemode by the developers. This is triggered if (i) the criminals have delivered at least one bag successfully and (ii) still have some outstanding tickets before the timer runs out, and (iii) a criminal is carrying the remaining bag when the timer runs out.

In this case, Sudden Death mode operates. The timer is extended for an extra minute and a half, and if anyone is killed (either cop or criminal), they cannot spawn back in. The mode ends with victory for the criminals if the bag carrier delivers the bag within that minute and a half period. The mode ends with victory for the cops if (i) the bag carrier is killed (unlike in regular time, the bag cannot be picked up by another player, the mode just ends), or (ii) if the timer for th eminnute and a half runs out before the criminals can deliver the bag.

Squad Heist[]

Squad Heist is a 5v5 downsized version of Heist that is set to be introduced in the Battlefield Hardline: Robbery expansion.

Inspired by Squad Rush from Battlefield 4, gameplay remains exactly the same as the normal variant except that the robbery is done in several stages, and Criminals now have a limit of 25 tickets for each of the three stages. Additionally, the Sabotage gadget cannot be used on the drills in this mode, unlike in Heist where they can be used.
