GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist is just around the corner and is set to be the biggest event in the game yet. We’re learning new details as it draws near, and now we know what the potential payout will be.
The Cayo Perico Heist is the latest and most highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto Online event yet. Rockstar Games have boasted about it being “biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition” in the game so far, and we’re learning more about it with each announcement.
The event will be the first-ever map expansion in GTA Online. You’ll have to infiltrate a private island owned by a notorious drug dealer, and then steal a piece of evidence. We don’t know the exact heist requirements yet, but the new trailer makes it apparent that you’ll spend a lot of cash on a submarine.
Is it worth it to spend big in order to participate in the Cayo Perico Heist? Well, we may have found the overall payout that you’ll get for your investment, and it’s impressive.
How much is the Cayo Perico Heist payout?
The submarine is heavily armed, and will serve as a place for you and your crew to lay low while you plan your next move. The developers have confirmed that it will also contain a few more surprises that haven’t been revealed yet.
A huge investment like this is only considerable if the expected returns are high. The ever-reliable Tez2 pointed out a potential estimate of the Cayo Perico payout from the latest trailer.
One brief clip shows a screen display of the map’s layout. You can also spot the the cash value of the Madrazo files on the top right corner. They are worth $1.1 million, while the Secondary targets will net approximately $2.8 million.
This makes the total payout around $4 million. Since this will be the first GTA Online heist that you can attempt solo; you can keep all the profits by playing alone. However, your chances of successfully pulling this off will be much greater with a team.
This heist will be a big investment for sure, but it’s worth it to earn some serious cash. You’ll also gain access to various new vehicles and weapons, along with a sweet new submarine HQ. The Cayo Perico Heist arrives to GTA Online on December 16.

New game modes and Ranked Solos leaked for Apex Legends
Apex Legends Season 8 will be here soon, and new leaks have emerged suggesting that we’ll see a Ranked Solos mode among others.
A brand new leak has revealed some more game modes that might be making their way to Apex Legends in Season 8. This includes the long-awaited Ranked Solos mode and a new version of Kings Canyon.
Apex Legends Season 8 is almost here, which means that there’s a ton of exciting new content to look forward to. We might see a brand new Legend join the roster, some improvements for existing characters, and even new LTMs.
The battle royale has seen its share of different game modes over its Seasons, and the recent Fight Night Collection Event brought the Airdrop Escalation LTM. Now some new leaks are suggesting that the devs are planning to change things up even more.
According to these leaks, Respawn Entertainment will be introducing Ranked Solos and brand new game modes in an upcoming update. Here’s everything we know so far.
Is there a Ranked Solo mode in Apex Legends Season 8?
This leak came from data-miner SomeoneWhoLeaks, who posted images of someone testing out a few new game modes on January 14. These are planned to be revealed to fans when Season 8 of the battle royale goes live.
We see appearances from the Arenas Team Deathmatch mode, along with one titled “Anniversary Event Kings Canyon.” The leak also shows off some game modes called “Locked and Loaded” and “Death Trigger.”
Looking closely, we can also spot a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. This stands out from the others as it is labeled with “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”
This is something that will greatly please Apex fans since they’ve been asking for a Ranked Solos mode for quite some time now. The devs have made it clear that they don’t consider these to be “healthy” for the game, so they wouldn’t be implementing them anytime soon.
Keep in mind that these are still just rumors that have yet to be confirmed by Respawn themselves, so take them with a grain of salt. They even stood by their position on this topic on January 8, stating that Ranked Solos will not be added to the battle royale.
It’s possible that this mode is just being tested to assess data before releasing the new season. We’ll keep checking for updates, and will update you once we learn more.

How to find Cayo Perico Treasure Chests in GTA Online
Rockstar Games have added Treasure Chests to GTA Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist expansion, and you can find them daily.
There are daily Treasure Chests hidden in The Cayo Perico Heist update that are worth $15,000 each, and you can find these when logging into GTA Online. Here’s how you can get your hands on them.
The Cayo Perico Heist brought brand new opportunities for earning money when it went live on December 14. The actual payout of the heist is impressive, and there are also other commodities that can earn you some extra cash such as gold bars.
Aside from doing missions and objectives, you can also find Treasure Chests when exploring the island of Cayo Perico before the heist. These are easy to find, and each one you come across contains $15,000.
Cayo Perico Treasure Chests locations
You can find two Treasure Chests daily when logging into GTA Online. One will be lying on the island, while the other can be found just off-shore in the water.
The game will notify you when you’re near one of these with the sound of bells ringing as you get closer to them. Just follow the sound until you see a prompt on-screen that lets you know that it’s time to open up the Treasure Chest.
Here’s how you can find them:
- Head to Cayo Perico to scope out the island
- Take a walk around that spot until you hear bells
- Keep walking in that area until you get an on-screen message
- Open the chest and claim the $15,000!
There are 10 possible locations where the chests can spawn on land, and these change every day. Luckily, YouTuber GTAMen has already compiled all of them on the GTA Online map.
Finding the ones that are underwater works the same way. The only major difficulty that arises is having to come up for air every few seconds after you dive into the ocean. For that reason, you should keep some rebreathers on you.
Just keep swimming towards the sounds of chiming bells until you get the prompt that tells you to open the Treasure Chest. GTAMen also went over all the underwater locations for these in another video.
So far, the Treasure Chests only rotate between these select locations. This might be subject to change later one, but right now you can find them by exploring these areas on the map daily when playing GTA Online.
Be sure to explore Cayo Perico as there are a ton of other fun activities and money-making opportunities at your disposal. GTA V’s first-ever map expansion has a lot of exciting content to offer, and it’s up to you to try it out.
