One of the most hotly anticipated updates for GTA Online, the Cayo Perico Heist update is now live, and players are already completing it within hours of launch.
Touted by Rockstar as the biggest update to GTA Online since launch, players were expecting a lot and it seems Rockstar has delivered.
The first of its kind, the Cayo Perico heist is completely solo-able, meaning players need not wait around for a party or risk playing with randoms who have no idea what to do and simply cost others hours of time.
The payout range also seems to be lucrative as the profits don't need to be split in case players choose to go lone wolf and solo the heist.
GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist payout and other bonuses
The payout in the Cayo Perico heist is not as straightforward as other heists in GTA Online. To access most of the storage lockups and hidden stashes, players must do a good job while scouting the place for intel to reveal these opportunities and increase their take.
The bare minimum take for the Cayo Perico heist is GTA $1,078,000 for collecting only the files requested by Miguel Madrazo out of which your submarine keeper Pavel will take a fair cut of GTA $22,000.
While this payout may seem meager, keep in mind that this is the absolute minimum take, with the max potential take listed as a whopping GTA $4,570,600.
But that's not all, Rockstar has also detailed all the bonuses players can receive by completing the heist with certain criteria.
