Rockstar Games have officially announced the latest GTA Online Heist, bringing a new island called Cayo Perico and plenty of new additions to the game. Here’s everything you need to know about the next major update.
It’s been a long wait for a new GTA Heist, with the Diamond Casino job releasing almost a full year ago back in December 2019.
Finally, Rockstar have announced that players will be heading to a new location for their next heist, with the luxury private island of Cayo Perico playing host to the next chapter of GTA Online.
When does the Cayo Perico heist launch in GTA Online?
GTA Online players will need to mark December 15 in their calendars, as that is the date they’ll be able to explore Cayo Perico for the first time.
Rockstar claim this is the “biggest GTA Online adventure ever,” including “an all-new heist location” along with a “brand-new approach to Heist design.”
Where is GTA Online’s Cayo Perico island?
Cayo Perico is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in GTA Online and marks the first time we are leaving San Andreas since GTA V released back in 2013.
The exotic island is one of the most secure private islands in the world, and home to the world’s most notorious drug dealer. Making it to Cayo Perico will be easy, but breaching it’s defenses, evading and eliminating the heavily armed guards, and escaping with the dealer’s valuable evidence, gold, art, and money won’t be.
Where Cayo Perico sits in the world of Grand Theft Auto remains somewhat of a mystery, but one eagle-eyed fan noticed that the shape of the island spotted in the first teaser looks almost identical to Haiti.
New Submarine HQ
A new heist wouldn’t be complete without a brand-new HQ, and players will be heading under the waves when they get their hands on their submarine.
Heavily armed, the submarine will give players a location to plan their attacks from, and also provide somewhere to hide should the action on the island get a little too dangerous. Rockstar also claim there will be plenty of surprises inside the new HQ, although what they are remain unknown.
What else is new in GTA Online’s Cayo Perico heist?
On top of all the above, players will also be able to acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, new social areas to party with friends, world-class guest DJs, and also find new radio stations with over 100 new songs to listen to as you cruise around the island.
More information is being revealed about the GTA Online Cayo Perico heist regularly, so be sure to check back to Charlie Intel as we continue to update this article.
How to spawn vehicles next to you in GTA Online
A clever trick lets players spawn cars right beside them in GTA Online, and we’ve got all the details you need to learn how to do it.
Grand Theft Auto Online players can call their personal vehicles to be delivered to them at any time, but there’s always the chance they could be destroyed before they reach you. This handy trick can force them to spawn right beside you, removing that risk.
No matter what you’re doing though, you’ll likely need the use of a vehicle to get around San Andreas county. These days, players often have a garage full of cars to choose from, from street racers to muscle cars, and even crazy vehicles like the Phantom Wedge truck.
Sometimes though, you may find yourself in need of one of your cars but are nowhere near your garage. Thankfully, there’s a clever way to get your rides to come to you, spawning them right next to your character so you can jump in and go.
How to make a car spawn next to you in GTA Online
The process of getting a car delivered is pretty straightforward. Open the GTA Online Interaction Menu, scroll down to ‘Request Personal Vehicle,’ and choose the vehicle you want. You’ll be informed that your car is on the way, and all you need to do is wait.
There is an issue with this though. Unfortunately, this method doesn’t park the car right beside you. Usually, this is fine, but if you’re surrounded by other players, they can easily blow your car up before you get close to it, leaving you stuck.
Thankfully, getting the car to spawn beside you is actually really easy. Simply look away from where you want it to appear, and it should spawn behind you. You can also switch to first-person mode and look at the floor.
- Open the Interaction menu and scroll down to ‘Request Personal Vehicle.’
- Pick the vehicle you want to be delivered, and press confirm.
- Immediately look away from where you want it to arrive, or stare at the ground in first-person mode.
- Wait a few seconds for the car to be delivered, turn around and it will be parked there for you.
While this is a useful trick, you don’t need to do it for every vehicle. For example, the ultra-powerful Oppressor MK2 will automatically spawn right beside you if you request its delivery.
For vehicles that aren’t heavily armored or dangerous though, this trick will give you a much better chance at survival if you’re under fire, and help you get out of trouble.
Once you have your car delivered, you can cruise the streets of Los Santos as you please, and maybe even have a go at drifting with our best GTA Online drift cars.

GTA Online lets players live their life in San Andreas the way they want to, with an incredible variety in weapons, activities, and of course, vehicles. Whether you’re looking for an armored beast for heists, an eye-catching automobile, or the perfect GTA Online drift car, there’s a vehicle for everyone.
The GTA Online Los Santos Tuners introduced lots of new cars, but more importantly, street racing has become a major deal in the city. If you want to have any chance, you need to have a machine built for pure speed.

One of the cheapest cars on our list, the Banshee 900R is available for $565,000, with a top speed of 131.00 mph, more than enough to zoom around Los Santos.

4. Principe Deveste Eight
Inspired by the real-life Devel Sixteen concept hypercar, the Principe Deveste Eight is as fast as it looks.
With a top speed of 131.75 mph, the Deveste Eight is the second-fastest vehicle in the supercar class and will set you back $1,795,000.
While it may not be the quickest overall, it’s one of the most beautiful cars on the list and will turn the heads of any opponent on the starting line.
3. Pfister 811
The Pfister 811 is almost a carbon copy of the Porsche 918, but don’t worry, that’s a great thing.
With a $1,135,000 price tag from Legendary Motorsport, the 811 is not only cheaper than the Deveste Eight but also slightly faster at 132.50 mph, making it a better option in the supercar class.
2. Grotti Itali RSX
Although it’s one of GTA Online’s newest vehicles, the Itali RSX is also one of its best. It arrived in the Cayo Pericho update in December 2020 and boasts the second-highest top speed of any car in GTA Online.
This stylish vehicle will set you back $3,465,000, but its speed and handling make up for it. While driving on a straight road, you’ll be able to reach a maximum speed of 135mph.
If you’re looking for a new vehicle to take into races, the Itali RSX is a solid choice.
1. Ocelot Pariah
Arguably the best car for racing in GTA Online, the Ocelot Pariah has an impressive top speed of 136mph and decent handling to boot.
The Pariah arrived in GTA Online all the way back in 2017 as part of the Doomsday Heist. Although many other cars have arrived in the game since the Pariah has remained a fan favorite.
If you haven’t got it already, you’ll need to fork out $1,420,000 to Legendary Motorsport to get your hands on it.
You’re definitely going to need a big bank account to get your hands on one of these cars, but our guide to making money fast in GTA Online should help you get there. Once you’ve picked your new car, head to the racetrack and see how you stack up against your opponents.

GTA 6 discover possible major storyline clue in GTA Online trailer
A few fans have claimed that the latest GTA Online trailer contains a hidden clue about the highly-awaited GTA 6.
There is a ton of speculation regarding the highly-anticipated GTA 6, and a few players may have found a major storyline clue in the latest trailer for GTA Online.
Rockstar Games finally gave the official release date for GTAV’s next-gen console remaster in a new trailer at the PlayStation Showcase 2021. We also got a closer look at GTA Online’s separate multiplayer in the same trailer.
This was disappointing to players who were hoping for an update on the highly-awaited GTA 6. Now, a few fans have claimed that the trailer has a major storyline for the next entry in the popular series.
Reddit user docbicep discussed one small detail about the trailer in the GTA 6 subreddit. They pointed out that there is a car with a yellow license plate containing a possible clue at the 38 seconds timestamp.

The yellow license plate reads: “6ISAL890.” The Redditor stated that this could actually mean “6 is a late 90s,” seemingly confirming the time period in which the next installment is set.
This caused fans to speculate about whether this is an intentional clue left in the trailer by Rockstar Games or simply a coincidence.
One Redditor was certain that this is a proper clue, saying: “It may mean nothing, but don’t think they don’t pay attention to details, I’m sure it means something. They don’t just put random stuff, especially when the license plate stands out like that with the yellow.”
At this point, this is all purely speculation, and we’ll have to wait for Rockstar to announce something official regarding GTA 6. For more GTA, be sure to check out how to get the GTA Online Prize Ride vehicle.
