Touch the Sky Stealth Guide: Overkill Difficulty

Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to complete Touch the Sky Heist in Stealth Mode in Overkill difficulty in the easiest way:

  • Head through the Vent
    • When you enter the penthouse, instead of approaching the guard at the main door, turn left and head upstairs. Once upstairs, you’ll see a vent entrance. Enter the vent by putting on your mask.

  • Find the Master Bedroom
    • Instead of going straight through the Vent, go right into the lower vents. It will lead you outside Mason Laurent’s office. Now find the Master Bedroom, avoid the security cameras, and hack the keypad on the Bedroom’s door. Connect to the building’s WiFi to unlock the door. To connect to the WiFi, stand on the marked spots, and in turn, take the patrolling guards out, which will make movement easier.

  • Hack the Head Guard’s Phone
    • Hack the Head Guard’s phone by standing behind him. He usually patrols the Upper and Lower floors and is always in movement. Our recommendation is to take him out silently and hide his body to make the hacking easier.
