The Cayo Perico Heist has been added to GTA Onlineand for the first time ever, you can start everything on your own. This time there is no need for friends or unreliable online strangers. However, the latest robbery is taking place on a private island off the mainland of GTA Online, so you will have to put your hand in your pocket and meet several criteria before you can start intriguing.
In this guide, we will walk you through where to find the in-game task donor that will allow you to begin this new expansion and how to purchase the goods and services needed to get started.
GTA Online – How to launch the Cayo Perico Heist questline in Music Locker
After downloading the latest update, the first thing you need to do when loading into GTA Online is head to The Diamond Casino & Resort in East Vinewood in Los Santos. It is marked with a diamond on the map, so it is easy to find it. Once there, you have to buy a Penthouse suite above the casino.
It will cost you at least $ 1.5 million GTA dollars, but it should be free if you have Twitch Prime and have connected your Rockstar Games Social Club account. You need a penthouse because it gives you access VIP nightclub in the basement of The Diamond Casino & Resort, called The Music Locker.
Once you have your shelter, use the elevator inside to get down and shuffle your way to a private booth around the dance floor. You will meet here Miguel Madrazo, the son of Martin Madraz, whom you may know from other GTA V missions.
Miguel will complete the plan – rob a private island controlled by a drug dealer named El Rubio. But first you need a submarine!
GTA Online – How to Find a Killer Whale for a Cayo Perico Robbery
Once you complete the cutscene with Miguel, you must spend $ 2,200,000 GTA dollars on the Killer Whale submarine to create an offshore base of operations. To find it, open your phone, tap the web app, and click Warstock Cache and Carry.
Once you’re there, you’ll find Killer Whale right above. You can customize it to have Weapons Workshop, Moon Pool or even missile grafting, but it gets more expensive very quickly.
Once you purchase the Killer Whale, it will appear on the map marked with a submarine icon. In my case, it was just out of the shore near The Diamond Casino & Resort, where I talked to Miguel.
With the offer of services, you can send a boat to your place to get to the submarine, but it will do any kind of flying vessel. If you have purchased a Sparrow Moon Pool upgrade, you can land directly on top of it and use the special entrance.
If not, you can use a boat or physically land on a submarine with any vessel. Once there, jump up and approach the valve to be prompted to enter the Killer Whale. You get a cutscene with your comrade Paul driving the ship.

When done, you can sit on the radar station if you need to change your location. It’s not that important now, but it’s useful later when you have to move around the map after the preparatory missions.
Then, if you really want to run The Cayo Perico Heist, you need to register as a motorcycle club owner or CEO. Both professions require a separate purchase of a building, executive office or motorcycle club, which will cost you millions of GTA dollars, depending on the size of the building you want to buy from the Dynasty 8 real estate listing.
Now that you’re done, hold down the Back button on any controller to open the game menu and select the Motorcycle Club or Securoserv tab. From there, you can register as an MC owner or CEO and be able to activate the table in the middle of the submarine (marked H on the minimap) and finally launch the robbery itself. If you followed all the steps, you should be gold and also in a hole for about five or six million dollars GTA …
