Side Jobs are as the name implies, smaller mini-objectives for the players to strive to accomplish while playing through the regular heists. Side Jobs were introduced on Day 2 of Spring Break as a community reward for accumulating 200,000 gallons of hype fuel during the Hype Train event.
The Side Jobs feature rewards players for successfully completing specified achievements, or repeating the acquisition process of said achievements if they have been unlocked beforehand.
There's a distinction between day jobs, weekly jobs, and monthly jobs;
- Daily challenges, usually less difficult achievements, award players with cash and random mod for the weapon of their choice.
- Daily safehouse challenges award players with 6 continential coins.
- Weekly challenges, usually fairly difficult achievements, will award players with cash and a pre-defined Infamy item. Note these can only be infamous items gained from card drops, not the items gained from progressing on the Infamy grid.
- Monthly challenges, all involving completing a particularly tough challenge, will award players with choosing between either a Stat Boost, a modification that grants a marginal boost to a weapon's performance, or a Team Boost, a modification that increases the amount of money and XP everyone in the lobby gets.
As the names suggests, each daily job can only be done once per day, weekly jobs once per week, and monthly jobs once per month. It does not matter at what time of the day/week the jobs were completed, a new one will become available starting the next increment of time.
Claiming the RewardEdit
If you've completed a challenge, during the day ending screen it will read 'Side Job completed! Go to Crime.Net to claim your rewards' (safe house dailies excluded). A cheering sound effect will be played based on the requirements of the challenge. e.g. Stealing all the weapons in Firestarter will trigger the sound when all loot bags are secured, while completing a designated number of contractor jobs will trigger the sound during the completion screen. Daily safehouse challenges won't require you to redeem them, they will automatically give their reward upon completion.
Note: The Stealth Bonus screen has higher priority, so if finished in stealth, only the sound can be heard.
After this if you load Crime.Net (both offline or online), click the Side Job button and go to the completed job (it will be orange);
- Click on the money icon to claim the money (20k for daily and 140k for weekly)
- Daily: Clicking the weapon mod button will give a new screen where you can scroll between the various weapon categories, the actual weapon for which to roll for an item, and then from which DLC you want an item drop (the base game displaying as 'Normal'), or you can leave that unspecified ('All').
- Weekly: Click on the mask icon to get the shown mask
- Monthly: Click on the Stat Boost icon or Team Boost icon to get the respective boost mod
- Only card and The Butcher Mod Pack 2 items can drop, not achievement unlockables or those gained from Gage packages.
- The max 2 limit from regular card drops does NOT apply to this reward system. However, weapon mods that have not reached 2 or more in stock seem to have higher chances and will drop before weapons mods that are in surplus.
- You can only pick items for weapons you have currently unlocked. Do avoid cashing in your mod reward if you've just recently gone Infamous, or request a mod for one of the few reputation 0 weapons provided by various DLCs, if you own any.
- It is possible to force the game to reward certain specific weapon mods as a daily reward, instead of receiving a random mod. For example, most weapons allow a drop from the Armored Transport DLC; this will always be the See More Sight on non-Transport weaponry. Additionally, requesting a Butcher Mod on any sniper rifle will always reward an LED Combo.

- For tasks that require players to complete a number of missions offered by the same contractor, a mission is only considered "completed" for a player if played through from start to finish. (i.e. Joining in during the middle of a heist won't count towards this.)
- For various tasks, it may be easier and more efficient to play solo, especially for tasks that require killing Special enemies such as Shields and Snipers, since only the player who deals the killing blow will count towards completion.
- Especially when going solo, consider playing at a lower difficulty as it makes killing enemies easier and reduces the likelihood of you getting downed.
- Enemies killed using akimbo weapons will not count towards enemies killed with pistols.
- General weapon kills: Any mission when performed Loud should provide ample opportunities to kill hordes of enemies. Consider playing solo if your kills are being continuously taken by your fellow players. Also note that failing a heist or restarting a heist does not affect kills performed that meet the task criteria.
- Melee kills: Owing to the need to get up close and put oneself at risk, going for this task may need to be managed carefully. If you're playing with others, chances are that your allies will shoot and kill enemies from afar before you get within melee range. Maps where there are smaller passageways and less open areas, such as Hoxton Revenge, can provide lots of chances to melee kill an enemy or two in quick succession, but beware of charging headfirst into swarms. Alternatively, soloing stealth missions and melee killing guards is another option, albeit requiring nine heists with four guards per heist, unless stealth is broken.
- Cash/Money: Getting to the end of a mission and receiving rewards will be enough instead of clearing the entire mission. A sufficiently lucrative heist such as Hoxton Breakout will suffice.
- Sniper Kills: Hoxton Revenge on loud is a good map to farm snipers with as the FBI will periodically spawn them to surround the map. Other sniper-heavy maps include Mallcrasher and Hotline Miami, though the former spawns snipers less frequently and the latter is a more time-consuming two-day heist.
- Shield Kills: Shields can appear on any difficulty when going loud, making them less difficult to farm. Aside from their shield, Shields don't have much durability compared to other Specials and can be killed easily if you can get around their protection.
- Cloaker/Taser/Bulldozer Kills: Farming these special enemies is harder as the former two don't always spawn frequently enough, and while bulldozers do have designated spawns in some missions they can be very risky for a single player to attempt. Conversely, having multiple players team up against a dozer can be tricky to determine when to deal the finishing blow to count towards the task. The Cloaker/Taser's ability to disable a single player also makes farming these specials on solo rather difficult.
- Bain: Doing simple heists such as Jewelry Store will be enough, as well as chaining ECMs on Shadow Raid.
- Vlad: Not counting escape segments, Ukrainian Job can be accomplished quickly by charging into the store and applying shaped charges to the safes and stealing the tiara. Even without deploying ECMs, it's possible to steal the tiara and return to the escape van before the driver is forced to move the van. This also helps complete the "Let's Do Th.." achievement.
- Hector: Due to Hector's heists all lasting several days, expect to spend some time doing this task. The old method of farming Rats (blowing up the lab, burning the intel and killing the Mendozas without taking the loot) still works well for this purpose.
- The Dentist: Hoxton Revenge is an ideal heist if going solo as it only lasts a single day and doesn't require DLC purchase. If hosting, Hotline Miami and Hoxton Breakout are popular options, likely ensuring a team of non-AI players to help you out.
Gage Spec Ops ChallengesEdit
Available to owners of the Gage Spec Ops Pack are four special side jobs that, once completed, will award them with the DLC's mask components and a parts crate for the Arbiter. These side jobs have their own category and can only be completed once.
Although the heist requirement will differ, the Spec Ops challenges are practically the same, with all of them requiring the player to find a parts crate and two keys to complete. In each of the heists, the keys can be found on the first two days and the crate on the last, with the sole exception of Big Oil where both keys will spawn on Day 1.
|Spec Ops Challenges|

CrimeFest 2017 MissionsEdit
- "Jacket has found something that you might like, but to get it, you will have to jump through a couple of hoops."
- —The missions' description.
As the Locke and Load/CrimeFest 2017 event only updated every other day, side jobs for finding hidden folders in various heists were added on the updates, the riddles containing the solutions for which released the next day, revealed by clicking on a tape recorder hidden on the website page (hinted at by the job descriptions). However, the side jobs did not explicitly require the riddles to be completed, and could be solved just going off the names alone.
Riddle 1: Flight
Solve the riddle found on day 2 of the Locke & Load Event website.
A Custom Assault Frame for the Kobus 90 Submachine Gun.
It -- is safe in a garage -- a mist the smell of cordite -- with the deceivers
The hidden folder is in Firestarter Day 1, on top of a baggage cart outside the left side of the airport building.
The mission's name indicated that the heist would involve aircraft.
"Safe in a garage" may refer to the garages that contain the Mendoza weapons, or alternatively the safe in the airport building.
"The smell of cordite" refers to the smell of burnt gun propellant. The heist involves stealing and/or burning loaded rifles.
"With the deceivers" likely refers to Hector, also known as "the rat".

-- At the feet of -- Owl -- Yak -- Owl -- Rhinoceros -- Owl -- Iguana
The hidden folder is in the samurai armor vault in Shadow Raid, on the top shelf immediately to the left when entering.

The first letters of the animals, "O-Y-O-R-O-I", refers to early samurai armor.
Riddle 3: Nag A Ram
Solve the riddle found on day 6 of the Locke & Load Event website.
A Custom Milled Barrel for the Deagle Pistol.
Thinks beside a pot
The hidden folder is in the Bank Heist: Deposit job, between the books on top of the bookshelf across from the bank manager's office.
The mission's name is an anagram of the word "anagram", hinting that the heist is a variation of another heist. It may also refer to Bain's constant nagging for the "ram", the thermal drill used to breach the vault, that the Bank Heists are known for.
The riddle is an anagram for "Bank Heist Deposit".
An alternate interpretation of the mission name is that it can be scrambled into "managar", referring to the bank manager.
Riddle 4: Knowledge Is Power
Solve the riddle found on day 8 of the Locke & Load Event website.
A Custom Titanium Frame for the Bernetti 9 Pistol.
-- Hydrogen -- Eliiite -- 40 --
The hidden folder is in Big Oil Day 2, in the left laboratory on the table closest to the whiteboard, behind the muriatic acid jug.
"Knowledge" refers to Mr. Rossy's research and experimentation on cold fusion.
"Power" refers to political power, the goal of most of The Elephant's jobs.
The riddle refers to the whiteboard the folder's table is next to, which reads:
Riddle 5: Silence
Solve the riddle found on day 10 of the Locke & Load Event website.
A Custom Reinforced Frame for the Judge Shotgun.
Where there is eyes in the sky,
Where sparkles and noises guide.
It lays in wait nigh
A work of pride.
The hidden folder is in Murky Station, on top of the crate on the forklift between train cars 05 and 06.
The riddle's name hinted that the folder would be in a stealth-only heist.
"Eyes in the sky" refers to the drone cameras in the mission.
"Where sparkles and noises guide" refers to the markers for the equipment needed for accessing the loot in the train cars, e.g. thermite paste is marked with a civilian working with a saw.
"It lays in wait nigh a work of pride" likely refers to the forklift.
