The Panther statue has finally returned to GTA Online, and our comprehensive guide will show you how and where to find this incredibly valuable treasure in Rockstar’s Cayo Perico Heist.

Rockstar Games like to shake things up whenever they release a new heist for GTA Online players to tackle. The Cayo Perico expansion brought a ton of new content to the game, let players attempt it solo, and allowed free-roam too.

You can net yourself a big wad of cash when you attempt this heist, and there are a few different targets for you to pursue. The Panther statue is extremely rare, the most important target, and we’ll go over how you can get it.

On May 20, the developers dropped a new GTA Online update, which has made the Panther statue available again in the Cayo Perico Heist.

According to notable leaker Tez2, the statue will be a guaranteed score the first time you go after it. After that, the chances of obtaining it will drop drastically.

Here’s how you can get the statue:

  1. Head into GTA Online
  2. Begin the Cayo Perico Heist prep
  3. Select the ‘Panther Statue’ as your heist target
  4. Select your approach for the Cayo Perico heist
  5. Begin the Cayo Perico Heist
  6. Steal the statue

It’s as simple as that. However, if the Panther statue isn’t the target then you may be out of luck. In this scenario, it’s best to change your target.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Log into GTA Online
  2. Visit your Heist setup room and start the Cayo Perico Heist
  3. Fly across the map in the Velum plane, before starting the minigame to pick your target
  4. Check out your Cayo Perico target and restart the mission if it’s not the Panther statue

That’s all there is to it. Just remember that if you don’t get the Panther statue as the target right away, you can keep repeating the process until it appears. Then, you can take the opportunity to go after it.

How much is the Panther statue worth in GTA Online?

Just to reiterate, the reason the statue is worth going after over and over again is because it’s worth $1.9 million in Grand Theft Auto 5.

You will need to make sure you have set the difficulty to ‘Hard’ as well when pursuing it. But if you’re successful, then that sort of cash can buy a lot of the best weapons and fastest cars in GTA Online.

What does the Fortnite Gold Cube do?

The actual purpose of the Gold Cube is currently unknown. When the other purple squares began making their moves, it remained stationary but has since started to travel as well.

This more prestigious Cube will likely play a massive part in the end-of-season event that will take place before Season 9 begins.

As always, we will keep you updated with any fresh news on what role the Fortnite Gold Cube will play.

The mysterious Fortnite Gold Cube started near Holly Hedges and Weeping Woods before it began its long journey.

At the time of writing, it can be found in between Boney Burbs and Believer Beach, and it is set to head towards Pleasant Park.

As the object now appears to be continuously moving, its location will change drastically throughout Season 8.

It is expected to go past many of the named locations around the outskirts of the map before reaching its final destination.

If the Cube is moving, then where exactly is it going? Well, according to a leak from dataminer HYPEX, the Fortnite Gold Cube – along with every other alien square – is actually heading to the center of the map.

This location has been significant for some time in Epic’s ongoing narrative, especially in the Zero Point storyline that has dominated many of the game’s seasons.

It appears that all of the Cubes, except Blue, which is yet to budge, will all be meeting in the same place eventually.

What happens when all of the Cubes make their way to the middle remains to be seen, but if history is anything to go by, then fans can expect something big when they are reunited.

Halo Infinite budget: How much will the “most expansive” Halo yet cost?

Microsoft’s Halo Infinite is getting closer to its 2021 release date, but is it set to be the most expensive game ever made?

Halo Infinite is the next epic sci-fi FPS game from the goliath that is Microsoft. It is has a lot of hype and excitement, but is 343 Industries’ new title set to have the most expensive budget for a video game ever?

Few franchises are guaranteed to create a genuine buzz and garner a ton of coverage, both mainstream and otherwise. Halo is one of them, and the next game in the series – Halo Infinite – could be the biggest one yet.

343 Industries has already said that Halo Infinite will feature open-world elements, another juicy campaign, and that it’s definitely out in 2021.

With the scale of the project and scope of the game’s vision bigger than ever, it’s got many people wondering if Halo Infinite is going to have the biggest budget ever for a video game.

Microsoft has been quite secretive over the game’s purported budget, but the latest rumors suggested that it is reportedly going to be the biggest ever.

Gfinity reported that Xbox Dynasty covered the question back in mid-2020 when they said the budget for Halo Infinite was going to end up in the region of $500 million!

For Halo Infinite, the $500 million figure will take into account salaries, advertising, marketing, testing, delays, licenses, and more.

We should note that the Xbox Dynasty report was rebuked by Frankie, a worker for 343 Industries, and claimed that this budget figure is not accurate.

Many games are now eclipsing $200 and even $300 million dollars for their budgets, so it would not be a surprise if we do get official confirmation that Halo Infinite broke, or was near, the $500 million mark.

As usual with strong rumors like this, we would urge you to take the information with a pinch of salt until Microsoft makes the numbers official.
