For those GTA Online players struggling to complete one of the setup missions for the Diamond Casino Heist, here’s our guide on where to find the hacking device.

Although many thought GTA V would be entering its final years, it seems it may be sticking around for as long as 2025. For those who are either getting back into the Online, perhaps in preparation for the next-gen version, or maybe even joining for the first time, there are many ways to make money.

One of the best ways to make money fast in GTA Online is by completing the many Heists, one of which has been causing some problems for players.

The Heist set up mission, “Hacking Device,” is part of the Diamond Casino Heist DLC for GTA Online. The setup mission requires players to acquire a hacking device that can be done in two different ways.

Where is the hacking device in GTA Online?

FIB Building

Players can obtain it from the FIB Building, where corrupt FIB agents need to be taken out, stealing their security pass to gain access to the building and thereafter steal the hacking device from the upper floors of the building.

For this method, the GTA Online hacking device will be located inside a briefcase on the upper floors of the FIB Building, and if players are having trouble finding it, you can use the Sightseer app on the phone to let them know when they are close to it.

NOOSE HQ

For the other method, players will need to steal the hacking device from the NOOSE HQ, where they will need to search an area, find and kill a corrupt agent to steal their access card.

Once players gain this access card, use it to enter the server farm, and similarly to the FIB variant, players will need to find a briefcase containing the haking device, which the Sightseer app may help them do.

Whichever you choose to do, the mission will end with players needing to take the GTA Online hacking device to the Arcade. Well, that’s it for where to find the hacking device in GTA Online. For more guides, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.

Although being out on PC for over six years, Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online are as popular as ever. Here are the minimum and recommended PC specs to get the best graphics and performance from GTA 5.

Thanks to the RP community and plenty of exciting updates, GTA 5 and GTA Online have remained popular long after release. The PC version allows you to boost the graphics quality and install mods, so you may be wondering if your PC can run it.

Here are the minimum and recommended PC specs to run Grand Theft Auto 5.

GTA 5 & GTA Online minimum PC requirements

As GTA 5 has been out for several years, you don’t need anywhere near a top-of-the-line rig to run it. The very minimum GPU is 2008’s NVIDIA 9800 GT, which only has 1GB of VRAM.

The only thing you may need to worry about is the Storage Space. Although Rockstar Games suggests only 72GB, GTA 5 will now take up over 100GB. We’ve updated the requirements to reflect this.

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit, Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
  • Storage: 107 GB available space
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible

Of course, you’ll need a slightly more powerful rig to run GTA 5 at its recommended settings.

You’ll need 8GB of RAM and a GPU with at least 2GB of VRAM.

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit, Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHz (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD 7870 2GB
  • Storage: 107 GB available space
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible

The GTA Remastered Trilogy’s PC requirements have also leaked, revealing the game will likely be more intensive than GTA 5.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is also receiving a next-gen upgrade for the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. However, there’s no confirmation that the PC version will be receiving any further enhancements.

GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition is set to release in 2021 across consoles and PC, and the minimum and recommended PC requirements have reportedly leaked, revealing the game to be more demanding than GTA V.

After months of leaks and rumors, Rockstar Games officially announced the GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

This remaster of Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas will hit consoles and PC this year.

Ahead of its listing on Steam, notable leaker alloc8or has leaked the minimum and recommended PC requirements. These GTA Trilogy PC requirements were shared by gaming news account Okami Games, who noticed that they’re higher than GTA Vs.

As pointed out by Okami Games, the GTA Trilogy’s leaked PC requirements are higher than GTA V’s. Of course, GTA V’s PC edition is over six years old, and hardware has improved a ton in that time. But, it gives an indication of the kind of improvements the game will see.

However, the reported minimum specs aren’t too taxing, but you’ll still need a reasonably modern rig to achieve a stable and playable frame rate.

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2700K / AMD FX-6300
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage Space: 45 GB

GTA Trilogy recommended PC requirements

Of course, the GTA Trilogies recommended PC requirements are higher than the minimum. Rockstar will reportedly recommend 16 GB of RAM, which is quite the climb from the minimum 8.

And of course, you’ll need a more powerful GPU and CPU to run at the recommended settings, with you needing either a GTX 970 or an RX 570.

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB / AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Storage Space: 45 GB

Of course, the PC version will allow you to tinker with graphics settings to find the perfect combination of performance and visuals.

These PC requirements aren’t official, and they are subject to change, so you may find Rockstar’s own listing may be different from this early leak.

UFOs have begun popping up over the GTA Online map, and they might be connected to the next big event in the game. Here’s how you can find the UFO locations in GTA Online.

Rockstar Games frequently introduce new content in GTA Online through weekly updates. The new additions include vehicles, discounts, login rewards, along with cash and RP boosts.

The October 14 update added a flying saucer over Los Santos. Many players have noticed this mysterious UFO and have been searching for it as part of the Sightseeing event.

Here are all the UFO locations in GTA Online.

The GTA Online UFO is difficult to find because it appears in different locations on different days. You’ll be able to spot the lights from the flying saucer from a few miles away.

Here are all the UFO locations in GTA Online:

  1. 15 October 2021: Just off Paleto Forest above the beach
  2. 16 October 2021: North point of the map near Paleto Bay
  3. 17 October 2021: Peak of Mt. Chiliad
  4. 18 October 2021: Around the lighthouse near Grapeseed coast
  5. 19 October 2021: Altruist Camp radio tower to the west of Mt. Chiliad
  6. 20 October 2021: Alien Camp near Sandy Shores

The UFO will appear between 10 PM and 3 AM in-game time. However, if you approach it in a vehicle then the flying saucer will disable your ride. Then, you’ll be left stranded as the alien makes its escape.

One interesting thing to note is that on Day 2, the UFO spawned over the drowned saucer that’s been in the game for a while. This has led to fans believing that a major event is coming around Halloween time.


Hopefully, we’ll know what Rockstar are planning soon enough. For more GTA, check out how to get Job Points in GTA Online, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.
