The Cayo Perico Heist is one of the biggest ever additions to GTA Online. It has a ton of new content such including the special Perico Pistol that is hidden somewhere on the island. It’s been found, and here’s how you can get it.
Grand Theft Auto Online’s most highly anticipated event is finally here. The Cayo Perico Heist is the first-ever map expansion that Rockstar Games has introduced to the world of GTA Online. The developers have boasted about it being the “biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition” in the game so far.
You’ll have to infiltrate a heavily-guarded private party island that’s owned by the notorious El Rubio. The map has various new vehicles and weapons, along with some secrets. The drug lord has a special pistol that’s hidden somewhere on Cayo Perico.
This secret weapon’s location has been discovered. Here’s where you can find the Perico Pistol in The Cayo Perico Heist.
How to get the Perico Pistol in GTA Online
First thing’s first; you’ll need to purchase the new Kosatka submarine in order to join this Heist. You can get it from Warstock Cache and Carry, but it won’t come cheap. The underwater vessel will set you back $2.2 million, so make sure you have that much saved up.
You can find El Rubio’s special pistol in the main building of the compound. Here is how you collect it:
- Make your way towards the compound while avoiding detection from patrols and snipers (stick to the foliage for cover, and check the mini-map for enemy movement)
- Infiltrate the compound through any of the entry points
- Enter the main compound building, either by taking the stairs or going through the basement
- Make your way to El Rubio’s office
- Once you’re inside the office, simply loot the desk and you will find the Perico Pistol lying there
- Collect the weapon and then leave.
It’s worth noting that only the person that loots the desk will receive the gun. So if your teammates also want it, then they will have to replay the entire heist. For this reason, you should hurry up and try to collect it first.
There are multiple different entry points that take you into the compound. Scan the area through the cameras and you’ll spot openings in the south wall, south gate, main gate, north wall, and north gate.
There are two different ways of entering the office. You can take the stairs around the building, but this will leave you vulnerable to enemy gunfire so we don’t advise it. The safer option is to go to the basement, steal the Madrazo file, and then enter the elevator.
Be sure to loot the hidden wall safe for a health pickup, cash, and pistol ammo. The Perico Pistol functions like the Marksman Pistol, in that you’ll fire a single powerful round, and then wait a few seconds for it to reload.

It’s meant to look like the Golden Gun from the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun. The weapon’s front sight, barrel, and chamber design are styled after the iconic pistol. It has the German words “MIT OFFENEN ARMEN” engraved on the barrel, which translates to “With Open Arms”.
That covers everything you need to do to find the hidden Perico Pistol. A few players have noted that the location of the weapon can change, so you might be able to find it in multiple areas.
The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online event that we’ve seen. There’s still a plethora of hidden content on the island, and we’ll keep you updated as we find more.

Here’s the official description of the ZR350:
“The nods of recognition, the pointing, the fanboys passing out in ecstasy. Witnessing the big power ZR350 revving up to tear a hole through an underground parking lot never gets old. And when you burn these tires out, they’ll fight to see who gets to breathe in your polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – because this much clout is seriously intoxicating.”

How to equip a Detector & disable Alien billboards for Fortnite Quests
Here’s where you can find Detectors and disable Alien billboards for Fortnite’s Season 7 Week 9 Legendary Quest.
It’s another week, which means there are new Fortnite Quests to complete! One of the more difficult tasks in the new set wants players to find and equip a Detector, then disable an Alien Billboard.
While there weren’t many map changes of note, one thing that eagle-eyed Fortnite fans will have noticed is the appearance of billboards, which the Aliens have programmed to say “SUBMIT” whenever a player gets close.
Now, it’s up to you to stop the Alien’s message to players by finding and equipping a Detector and then disabling the billboards.
Here’s everything you need to complete Week 9’s Legendary quest.
Where to find and equip a Detector in Fortnite
The good news is that finding the Detectors are relatively easy, as they are all located in named Fortnite locations where there is also a billboard.
There are seven locations where players can head, which are:
- Believer Beach
- Boney Burbs
- Craggy Cliffs
- Lazy Lake
- Misty Meadows
- Pleasant Park
- Retail Row
Once you choose a location to land at, you’re looking for a black crate somewhere in the area. The boxes are found outside somewhere, so don’t worry about searching every building you see.
Once you spot it, simply head over and interact with it. You’ll then be able to equip the Detector and start the second part of this quest.
How to disable an Alien Billboard
The final part of this challenge is pretty straightforward. Once you have your Detector equipped, look for the billboard which has been planted in the area, walk over to it, and interact with it. The billboards are usually just outside the POI, but they’re big enough that you should spot them pretty easily.
It’s important to note that this challenge doesn’t track across multiple games, which means you must complete both parts in the same match. If you get the Detector but die before you get to the billboard, you’ll need to start from scratch.

GTA Online update & patch notes Aug 5: Seminole Frontier Podium Vehicle, new cars, 3x GTA$ & RP
The GTA Online Weekly Update returns for August 5 with the Seminole Frontier Podium Vehicle, new cars to buy, and 3x GTA$ & RP.
GTA Online is back with another weekly update, this time for Aug 5. It includes the Seminole Frontier as a Podium Vehicle, brand new test track cars including the Dominator ASP, and 3x GTA$ and discounts.
GTA Online is in thriving right now, but in terms of Grand Theft Auto’s future, the latest rumor suggests that GTA 6 will now only be released in 2025, and a recent report about a GTA 6 amusement park map has been outed as false.
Until GTA 6 is official and we can be more certain, we will remain focused on GTA Online, and our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2 has been able to get early info on the new update.

Seminole Frontier Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Seminole Frontier up for grabs for Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel players to try and spin to win this week.
The big off-road bad boy that is the Seminole Frontier is center stage on the podium this week. It’s not the most expensive vehicle the podium has seen clocking in with a price tag of $678,000, but free is free, and it’s great for when you need to leave the tarmac.
Here’s the official description of the Seminole Frontier:
“When a responsible adult buys a car, it’s a question of making sensible compromises. Your heart wants a feral, mountain-chewing 4×4 with bullbars and more torque than a Panzer division. Your spouse wants a family SUV with childproof locks, powerful aircon, and an airbag so big it’ll break your jaw if a fly hits the bumper. But look around you. Do we live in the age of responsible adults or sensible compromises? Enter the Seminole Frontier. Be safe, look reckless, have it all.”
