The new GTA Online update named Cayo Perico dropped recently and brought a lot of new stuff with it. Among that stuff is a whole new island where you can do a heist and in case you were wondering how you can start the heist or what to do in order to start the heist; you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll walk you through on how to start the Cayo Perico Heist in GTA Online.
GTA Online: How to Start the Cayo Perico Heist
There are some things that you need to make sure of before you proceed with the heist and the first one is you having an adequate amount of spare cash which you can later splash. When you first fire up GTA after the fresh update, you’ll get a text from Miguel Madrazo, who’ll be asking you for a meeting at The Music Locker. The Music Locker is a new nightclub sitting close to the Diamond Casino in East Vinewood.
Once you find the nightclub and meet with Miguel, you’ll need to splash $2.2 million on a Kosatka Submarine in order to reach the island. The sub will also be your headquarter to carry out all the planning for the heist. If you want to customize it to your taste, a number of upgrades are also available that can be quite costly. Anyway, once you’re done with purchasing and customizing Kosatka, you’ll need to locate it. You can either mark it on the map and go there yourself or you can simply call a cab from the Services Menu.
After you reach and enter the submarine, another cut-scene will begin. After the cut-scene, there’s another thing that you need to make sure of; you need to have either a President, CEO or VIP status. It’s the one last requirement after which you can proceed with planning the heist. You can gain the CEO or President status by owning a property in Los Santos while the VIP status can be toggled On or Off from the interaction menu. After meeting with this requirement, you can proceed with the preparation mission for Cayo Perico Heist.
And that’ about everything you need to know on how to start the Cayo Perico Heist in GTA Online.
