The Panther Statue in GTA Online is an incredibly valuable treasure and our comprehensive guide will show you how and where to find this incredibly valuable treasure in Rockstar’s Cayo Perico Heist.

Rockstar Games like to shake things up whenever they release a new Heist for GTA Online players to tackle. The Cayo Perico expansion brought a ton of new content to the game, let players attempt it solo, and allowed free-roam too.

The Cayo Perico Heist is still one of the best ways to make money in GTA Online. You can net yourself a big wad of cash when you attempt this Heist, and there are a few different targets for you to pursue.

However, the Panther Statue is the rarest, and it’s made its truimphant return in the GTA Plus rewards for November 2022. So let’s look at how you can go about obtaining it in the Cayo Perico Heist.

  7. Complete the Heist.

How to change your heist objective in GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist

If the Panther Statue isn’t your main target then you may be out of luck in acquiring it. You will need to make sure you have changed your Heist target before the start of the official mission.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Log into GTA Online.
  2. Visit your Heist setup room.
  3. Start the Cayo Perico Heist.
  4. Fly across the map in the Velum plane, before starting the minigame to pick your target.
  5. Check out your Cayo Perico target.
  6. Restart the mission if it’s not the Panther Statue.

That’s all there is to it. Just remember that if you don’t get the Panther Statue as the target right away, you can keep repeating the process until it appears. Then, you can take the opportunity to go after it.

How much is the Panther Statue worth in GTA Online?

Just to reiterate, the reason the statue is worth going after over and over again is that it’s worth $1.9 Million in Grand Theft Auto: Online.

You will need to make sure you have set the difficulty to ‘Hard’ as well when pursuing it. But if you’re successful, then that sort of cash can buy a lot of the best weapons and fastest cars in GTA Online.
