Famous data miner alloc8or recently revealed that two new weapons would be included in the next update. These are the Tactical Assault Rifle and the PRCS Sniper Rifle, which can be seen in the recently published screenshots.

He also mentioned new skydiving activities connected to a skydive collectible.

The game code features new Daily Collectibles named "Buried Stashes," with the coordinates spread around the Cayo Perico Map, as discovered by well-known insider TezFunz2. Additionally, they mention the need for a Metal Detector to locate the Stashes.

The official trailer showed off some new Races taking place on Cayo Perico. This would imply that the island will be made available for free-roam exploration rather than just Heist preparations.
