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.

Fortnite Gold Cube: Location, travel path & more
The Gold Cube in Fortnite Season 8 has started to move, but what’s it for and where is it going? We’ve got the lowdown right here.
Fortnite Season 8 is here with plenty of Cube-themed content for players to tackle. One of the most mysterious new additions is the Fortnite Gold Cube which has begun traveling around the map. Here’s where to find it and where it’s headed.
Fortnite Season 8 Cubed has landed, and it’s brought with it a whole host of new changes to the world-famous battle royale. From another Marvel crossover with Venom and Carnage to an entirely new dimension called The Sideways.
In a throwback to the first season, Epic has also brought back Kevin the Cube, and he isn’t alone this time.
A strange Gold Cube can also be seen rolling around among the numerous alien Cubes populating the map. Here’s everything we know about it so far.
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.
Fortnite Gold Cube location
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.
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.
Also, check out all the latest information on Halo Infinite so far.
