GTA Online: How To Start Cayo Perico Heist | Music Locker Location, Submarine Cost, Set-Up Guide

Making introductions and sizeable investments.

GTA Online's biggest expansion yet, the Cayo Perico Heist, is here. Offering an incredible payout and a whole new landmass to explore, it's likely to keep players coming back over the coming months.

When you first jump into the game, though, it can be tough to work out how to get started.

Here's our guide, but be warned – you will need a LOT of money to be able to buy a submarine and kick things off. You'll also need a Penthouse property at The Diamond Casino.

How To Start GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist

Meet Miguel Midrazo At The Music Locker

First thing's first – it's time to make some introductions.

You'll need to head to the new VIP Nightclub, The Music Locker, underneath The Diamond Casino.

The VIP area is off-limits unless you're a penthouse owner, so come back once you've invested in some real estate if that is the case.

Buy The Submarine

In GTA Online, you have to spend money to make money – so be prepared to spend a lot.

Once you've spoken to Miguel, use Warstock Cache & Carry to buy a Kosatka submarine for $2.2 million.

You can even customise it, although that can get expensive.

Got yourself a submarine? Pavel will contact you via phone to begin planning the heist.

Good luck, gangsters.
