GTA Online players have discovered a new trick that allows you to skip a huge section of the security code prep mission for the Cayo Perico Heist and finish it quicker with the help of your submarine.
The Cayo Perico Heist update served as Grand Theft Auto V’s first-ever map expansion and has brought new content to the world of Los Santos. It requires you to infiltrate the private island of the notorious El Rubio and steal some evidence.
Since the heist has been available from December 14, GTA Online players have had ample time to discover new ways of tackling the different heist prep missions. One of these has you escape from the casino after securing El Rubio’s key security codes.
This can prove to be difficult as you’ll then have to battle against the cops. Luckily, there is a neat trick you can use to avoid this hassle altogether.
How to complete the Cayo Perico Heist prep quickly in GTA Online
This trick was discovered by Reddit user GroundbreakingIron4 who explained how it works in the GTA Glitches subreddit. It involves you parking your Kostaka submarine by the NOOSE headquarters and then dying.
Here’s how you can complete this heist prep mission easily:
- Park your submarine by the NOOSE HQ
- Visit the Casino for the security code prep mission
- Take down the guards
- Kill the head of security and secure the codes
- Blow yourself up with explosives
If you’ve followed these instructions correctly you’ll have completed the prep mission. You can blow yourself up after taking out the head of security and this will let you skip the entire fight against the police backup while trying to escape.
You don’t have to worry about death resulting in a mission fail since you’ll get to progress if you’ve already secured the codes. You’ll be teleported outside the NOOSE headquarters without having to deal with any cops.
If you’re out of explosives then there’s also an alternative way to perform this trick. User aidanj97 pointed out in the thread that if you let the security guards kill you after acquiring the codes, you’ll spawn away from the casino without having to blow yourself up.
You can attempt this in either of the two ways we mentioned, but the explosives route is definitely quicker since you don’t have to spend time heading towards the guards. This makes it the method that’s most likely to be used by speed-runners.
Whichever route you decide to go, this trick is extremely useful and worth trying out if you’re about to tackle the heist prep mission. Be sure to explore the expansion as there are a ton of fun activities that you can enjoy in Cayo Perico, such as finding easter eggs.

Those extra few frames you’re unaware you’re missing out on could be the difference between seeing your opponent a bit faster and securing yourself the kill.
It doesn’t matter how late into a season it is, you should always be looking to see if there’s a way to increase your gameplay performance.
So to be able to see your FPS on-screen, here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Open up the “Origin” platform
- Go to Application Settings
- Select the In-game tab option
- Locate the FPS Counter selection
- Turn it on to see it in the corner of your screen
- It will now be on during matches and you’ll always know what your FPS is
This information is crucial if you want to maintain a level playing field with the rest of the strongest Apex players. It could easily be an issue that’s held you back in previous seasons of Apex Legends.
With the upcoming Season 8 of Apex Legends in sight, make sure you’ve got this option turned on. You’ll then be able to make any necessary changes to help you in future matches and see about getting yourself the best settings for a high FPS too.

New Fortnite invisibility glitch found in Predator Cloaking Device
Fortnite players have discovered an exploit with Predator’s Cloaking Device that allows you to remain invisible for an entire match.
You can hide from your opponents in Fortnite Season 5 with Predator’s Cloak Device and become invisible. Now some fans have found a way to exploit the device for an infinite invisibility glitch.
Epic Games brought The Predator to Fortnite Season 5 as part of the v15.21 update. You can battle him as a boss to unlock his skin and if you acquire the hunter’s mythic Cloak Device then you can become invisible.
Once you activate the device, other players won’t be able to see you other than getting a glimpse at your outline from a distance. You can use this to get a drop on your foes and then take them out when they least expect it.
One player discovered a glitch involving the Cloaking Device that you can exploit to gain infinite invisibility.
Fortnite invisibility bug in Predator’s Cloaking Device
This exploit was found by YouTuber Glitch King, who posted a video in which he showed off a way to extend the invisibility effect throughout the entire duration of a match. It’s so easy to perform that anyone can do it.

All you have to do is use the Cloaking Device and then unplug your internet. You can reconnect immediately and the game will keep you invisible until the match ends, or until you log off. You will be undetectable to other players and can use this to your advantage.
It’s not surprising to find an exploit like this since we’ve seen it happen several times in Fortnite. It was only recently that a few players discovered one that allowed them to use the jetpack to fly infinitely in the Floor is Lava tournament.
The most surprising thing about this glitch is how fast it was discovered. The Predator and his Mythic Cloaking Device have only been in the battle royale for a few hours and fans have already found a way to exploit bugs.
This exploit is fairly easy to take advantage of, and as the title of the video suggests; it will make players think that you’re hacking. It can be considered game-breaking since you will be almost impossible to spot during the match.
That said, it’s still difficult to kill The Predator, so it’s unlikely that many players will be taking the time to disconnect and reconnect their internet. If the bug persists, then it could become a real problem.
We might see Epic Games disable the new mythic soon until they properly patch up the glitch. We’ll be sure to update you if they do. You can read our guide to beating Predator to learn how you can unlock him as a skin.
