To complete most heists in GTA Online, you need a four-player squad. Cayo Perico is different, as it’s the first heist to let players take it on as a solo player, start to finish.

Going it alone will obviously make the heist even more difficult, but you won’t need to share any of the total take with anyone else.

To make the most money by yourself, you’ll need to target the Panther Statue as your primary target, with gold as your secondary objective. Grab these and get out alive, and you can add around $2.2 million to your bank balance.
