GTA Online is bringing us to Cayo Perico in their upcoming heist.
Earlier this week, Rockstar Games released a teaser trailer for the latest GTA Online update. We found out a few details about the new heist called the Cayo Perico. It will also serve as a map expansion by adding a whole new island to the world of Los Santos.
The heist is scheduled for release on December 15. Take a look at the new trailer for the update below.
After the trailer dropped, Rockstar made a new blog post in which they laid out some new information about the event. In it they told players:
“Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.
“It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.
“Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.
“The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.”
The description implies that we’ll most likely get to the new island via a submarine. At the very least, the underwater vessel will come into play in some manner during the heist.
This is the first map expansion in GTA Online, and it follows May’s Series A Funding heist. Rockstar is providing new details very quickly, so we’ll keep this piece updated as we learn more.
How to find GTA Online’s Phantom Car Halloween event
Special limited-time Halloween events have arrived in GTA Online, and here’s how you can encounter The Phantom Car special event at night.
Rockstar is paying tribute to Halloween with a new ‘The Phantom Car’ special event in GTA Online, follow our guide and we’ll tell you how to trigger this terrifying ordeal and explain what it entails.
GTA Online’s huge mass of content is always being expanded upon with fresh updates and limited-time events. Halloween is upon us, and Rockstar is honoring it with The Phantom Car Halloween event.
It’s a tribute to the 1983 horror film Christine based on the works of legendary author Stephen King. A crazed car that comes to life and possesses a range of negative, and deadly, emotions that lead to terror for several teens.
Here’s how you can set up a showdown with The Phantom Car in GTA Online.
What is The Phantom Car Halloween event in GTA Online?
The Phantom Car seems to be a limited-time event that players will only be able to enjoy for the next two or three weeks of the Halloween portion of the year.
Players will be terrorized during sessions of GTA Online by the meddlesome car that, under the conditions being met, will stalk players driving around in a vehicle, or attempt to run them down if they’re on foot.
How to start The Phantom Car event in GTA Online
Here’s how you can ensure you bump into The Phantom Car:
- Boot up GTA Online
- Enter ‘Free Roam,’ and don’t enter a building
- Wait until the in-game time is between the hours of 9pm-5am
- You must not use helicopters, boats, planes, vehicles with weapons, the Deluxo, or either the Oppressor/Oppressor MK2
- The Phantom Car will only appear if at least 16 minutes have elapsed since the free roam session began
- You can’t do this solo, there has to be at least one other player in the session
- With all these requirements met, walk or drive around until you hear some ominous music
- If you’re in a vehicle, you should see a Declasse Tornado with just its headlights on following you
- If you’re on foot, the car will be on fire, have bright red headlights and will aggressively drive towards you non-stop
- Either concentrate your fire on the car until it blows up, or do one of the “must not” conditions above to make the car disappear
If you’re desperate to go and fight The Phantom Car, then follow these instructions above and have a violent Halloween!

GTA Online October Prime Gaming Rewards discounts
When we say that you getting the Sanctus for free is a great opportunity, we mean it.
This deadly-looking lump of metal murder on wheels typically retails for $1,995,000, but to celebrate the Halloween season, Rockstar is giving them away to players for free!
Here is the official description of the Sanctus in GTA Online:
“OK, so it’s not technically road legal. Or even vaguely safe. And with those forks you better get good at three point turns. But if you can get past all that you can cruise straight into your Goth biker death cult of choice.”
70% off Besra
A basic military jet that will get you from A-to-B a lot quicker than other modes of transport in Los Santos.

It’s not flashy and doesn’t have any weapons, but the Besra’s resourcefulness and accessibility make it a more affordable choice than other aircraft in the game. Better still, it was already reasonably priced at $1,150,000, and now it can be yours for just $345,000!
Here is the official description of the Besra in GTA Online:
“High performance jet trainer aircraft. You’ll be looping the loop, buzzing the tower, and dropping the big one before you can say “American Imperialism.” Pack a parachute and clean underwear.”
70% off Z-Type
The other car in the GTA Online October 2021 Prime Gaming rewards program is the Z-Type.
Load up the Tommy Guns and go pull a hit on someone, that’s the vibe that the Z-Type gives off, and it’s a cool one. The Z-Type looks like it’s been airlifted straight out of a gangster film and would normally order the buyer to cough up $950,000. Thankfully, Rockstar has intervened and made it $285,000 as part of Prime Gaming Rewards.
Here’s the official description of the Z-Type:
“Weather the new Great Depression with a car from the last Great Depression. When this rolled off the production line in 1937, minorities and women knew their place. It was the world’s fastest automobile. Now it’s the world’s most expensive second-hand automobile. One of only 10 ever made, the Z-Type is a car you can really enjoy sitting in, surrounded by armed guards, too terrified to actually drive it anywhere.”
It’s definitely worth making sure your Rockstar Social Club and Prime Gaming accounts are linked, with more offers and discounts dropping every month.

GTA Online Prize Ride October 21 vehicle: How to get RT3000 free
Thanks to the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update, players can earn a weekly Prize Ride vehicle, and here’s how you can do it, and what it is.
The Los Santos Tuners update introduced the new LS Car Meet, and this week players can get the RT3000 free as the GTA Online Prize Ride October 21 vehicle.
The Los Santos Tuners update is certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of an important content drop for GTA Online. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.
As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the new update has also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s RT3000 Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.
How to unlock GTA Online’s free RT3000 Los Santos Tuners Prize Ride
To get the RT3000, you’ll need to place in the top 4 in 8 Pursuit Races in GTA Online to complete the Prize Ride challenge.
Each week, players can unlock a new vehicle for free as part of the Los Santos Tuners update at the LS Car Meet. From October 21, players will be able to get their hands on the RT3000, but only for seven days.
That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win the car for yourself. Given that it normally costs $1,715,000, it’s definitely worth trying to get!

Here’s the official description of the RT3000:
“There’s more power behind the Dinka RT3000 than the Palmer-Taylor Power Station when they break out the party dust, start the rave, and let the reactor do its thing. It’s not a complicated formula, but it works.”
With GTA 6’s 2025 release date being contradicted by an alleged GTA 6 voice actor claiming that the first trailer may be on the way, it’s hard to know what to think.
On the plus side, the long-rumored GTA Trilogy Remastered: Definitive Edition has finally been announced, so players will take to Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas in their most stunning versions yet!
The Enhanced and Expanded Remaster has been delayed for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, so Rockstar has stepped up its efforts to make GTA Online even bigger and better, and the Los Santos Tuners update has packed the game with even more content.
Also, check out the complete list of cars in the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update, and stay tuned for the October 28 Prize Ride vehicle next week!
