Playing the GTA Online new update, The Cayo Perico Heist solo is very difficult but also very rewarding. Though, if you want to score more cash than normal, you can actually get your hands on gold too with a simple trick.
This new heist is unlike any other because you don’t need too specific on one certain target.
Things like the Pink Diamonds, bearer bonds, and Tequila provide the most cash at the end of the heist, but if you want to top up your final take you can also go after secondary targets like paintings and cash. These targets obviously don’t provide as much cash compared to the bigger scores but it will still help.
One thing that will top off your big score is gold. You can get the max of $500 dollars on top of your primary target, and you can easily get it in solo mode too – just so long as you want to fight El Rubio’s guards.
The tactic comes from YouTuber Vil2486i, who typically does tips, tricks, and speedruns of GTA Online’s heists.
During the non stealthy run of Cayo Perico Heist, the GTA Online player shows that, in one of the main courtyards, there is a locked room with gold on the table that has a guard inside of it.
How to easily get gold in Cayo Perico heist
- Check the locked room with gold has a guard inside
- If it does, smash all the windows using your gun
- Try and get the guard to aggro on you by running between the two doors
- If he’s in cover by one of the doors, shoot it
- Once he opens the door, quickly rush in, take him down and take the gold
While this is a great thing to help out your final pay in the heist. But there are also downsides to this Gold take. This makes you move slower and its more risky because you need to not go in stealthy and kill all the guards. But ig you are willing to do this than go for it, just make sure to kill all the gaurds and watch out! Leave a comment about what you think.
