Rockstar Games pushed another big score to Gyo Online in Cayo Perico Heist. From Los Santos, you will attack a private tropical island defended by annoying militias. For the first time, you don’t need teammates to rob. It can be done completely separately.
For the lone wolf among us, this means that you will get all the benefits at the end of the mission-you don’t need to split the pot with your good friends.
Based on this information, we will introduce all the rewards available for completing Cayo Perico Heist and show you how to maximize your earnings when Cayo Perico wears boots.
Cayo Perico Heist rewards and expenses
The main thing you need to look for in The Cayo Perico Heist is the Madrazo file, which will get you a reward of $1,100,000 from the mission provider Miguel Madrazo, and you will get this reward.
Then, Pavel’s clients will be reduced by $22,000. This means that $1,078,000 is the minimum amount you can earn from The Cayo Perico Heist.
However, given that one of the main preparation t asks for the robbery is to cover the entire island with a huge scope definition task, you have a great potential to increase your number. You can easily earn more than $4 million per robbery
How to improve secondary goals
In the “Gather Intel” mission to start the preparations for the robbery, you will expand the scope of El Rubio’s residence and find different entrances to the fort as well as gold, cash, paintings, and drugs through the security cameras that invade the island.
You can thoroughly discover additional resources by using the camera, called “secondary targets”, and you can eventually obtain these resources in the ending to reward those with eagle eyes.
In addition to the compound itself, there are more secondary targets scattered throughout the island. You can choose the range as needed when collecting Intel information, and then choose in the preface to the finale to Cayo Perico.
Once you have stolen the Madrazo file and escaped, you can also put the secondary target in your pocket, but this is inherently tricky.
Cayo Perico secondary goal, explained
The key thing to know is that apart from the compound, the location and nature of resources are random and will vary among participants. As you can see in the screenshot of the completed map above, I found Cash and Cocaine on the runway, but the mileage may vary. You may not find anything there, but for example, you encountered a pile of weeds at the North Pier.
Regardless of the type of secondary targets, when you find them in the ending, you need to pack them in a loot bag. In my experience, I can only hold two stacks of cocaine or cash before filling the bag, which can provide approximately $500,000, although this may depend on resources.
However, my planning screen tells me that since I have identified all the secondary goals of the scope, my maximum potential benefit is $3,450,000. If you are playing against a team of four, you can earn this amount. I have seen some other players on Reddit who have the potential to exceed $4 million!
Keep in mind that for the secondary targets in the Rubio compound, you will need at least two players to get them, because you need to use two key cards from the defender to open the door at the same time.
When stealing Madrazo files, you can also take the elevator upstairs and rob El Rubio’s safe on the left side of the table. The safe is located in the corner covered by the picture. Crack it, and you should get good change, about $50-100,000. This covers various potential ways to make money in Cayo Perico Heist.
Cayo Perico Heist unlocks weapons
As part of Cayo Perico Heist, three new weapons have been added to GTA Online.
Military rifles can be obtained before the robbery and can be purchased at any Ammu-Nation for $397,500.
During the robbery, the combat shot gun was found in several random locations in the courtyard. I climbed up one of the guard towers near the main entrance and found mine. Once you find it, you can buy it at Ammu-Nation for $295,000.
The Perico pistol is the final unlockable weapon in The Cayo Perico Heist, which is locked on the desk in El Rubio’s office. After stealing Madrazo files, you can enter the office via the elevator.
Before solving the Cayo Perico Heist Finale, you need to trigger an event in Los Santos and meet the sleeping El Rubio guards in various places in the open-air world. I have not replicated this content myself, but you can check this Reddit thread for potential locations and more details.
After meeting with your guards, they will put down a key that will allow you to open the desk and retrieve the Perico pistol at the end. Otherwise, you will not be prompted.
