By | 16/12/2020



GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist is this year’s larger update for the popular web version of Grand Theft Auto and is available now for free.

A new expansion for GTA Online is always an exciting time for fans of the game as they usually add more gameplay, vehicles and customization.

The latest GTA Online DLC however is different as this time around we get to actually leave Los Santos for an entirely new location.

Cayo Perico is a small island that belongs to an enigmatic criminal known as “El Rubio”, or “The Blond”.

The heist tasks you with traveling to Cayo Perico in order to steal anything and everything from El Rubio.

The island is heavily fortified with private security and a virtual army tasked with protecting the villain..

Like most heists in the game, planning is required but how much is up to you.

Unlike other DLC for GTA Online though, this heist can be undertaken completely solo or as a team, whichever you prefer.

Planning is encouraged, however, as the outcome of the heist might depend on your approach.

More planning means more tools at your disposal when the time comes to execute your infiltration of El Rubio’s estate.

Airstrikes and heavy-handed assaults are an option, but so are underwater breaches or stealth tactics.

Up for grabs is anything from contraband and valuable weapons to gold bars and diamonds.

This update also provides a new base of operations in the form of a decommissioned nuclear submarine which doubles as a home away from home.

The sub also comes with a moon pool for underwater vehicles such as the new Kraken Avisa nautical explorer.

Just like the “After Hours” DLC, The Music Locker features real-life DJs and their sets for players to dance along and listen too.

Music for radio stations has also been expanded and two new stations have been added.


KULT FM and Still Slipping are available with the latter currently located in the Mirror Park area as a pirate station.

Fixing antennae across the city will expand the range of the pirate signal so you can listen to Still Slipping anywhere.

Other additions include clothing from Civilist and MISBHV as well as assault weapons and character customization.

GTA Online: The Cayo Perico Heist release date was December 15, 2020 and is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
