The Cayo Perico heist is one of the most popular heists in GTA Online. The island is filled with buried treasure and is filled with content for players to enjoy. The Cayo Perico heist is the first heist that you can do solo as well.

With that being said, there are a lot of variables in the heist. You could be stealing the panther statue one day and, the next, an expensive bottle of tequila. Here, we break down what kind of payout you can expect from the Cayo Perico heist.

In the Cayo Perico Heist, Rockstar has made it so the heist can be done alone with no other players. This means that not only you can do it solo, but you can do it with a maximum of four players. That means anywhere between 1-4 players can do the heist at the same time. That means you will potentially have to deal with a split of profits.

On top of that, what exactly are you stealing? In the Cayo Perico Heist, there are multiple primary targets that you can potentially steal. Each primary target has its own value, so that will affect how much you will make. Here are the primary targets for the Cayo Perico Heist:

Primary Target Value Value On Hard
Sinsimito Tequila $900,000 $990,000
Ruby Necklace $1,000,000 $1,100,000
Bearer Bonds $1,100,000 $1,210,00
Madrazo Files $1,100,000 N/A (Can only be the target your first time doing the heist)
Pink Diamond $1,300,000 $1,430,000
Panther Statue $1,900,000 $2,090,000

As you might have guessed, when there are primary targets, there are also secondary targets. These are also varied, so that will affect how much money you will make. You can end up taking art, gold, weed, cocaine, and cash as your secondary targets. There are also various fines you have to pay during setup and completion.

The absolute maximum payout you can potentially get for the Cayo Perico Heist is around $4.2 million. This assumes that you get the panther statue as your primary target, you have gold as the secondary target, and you steal from the safe that is hidden in the compound. You will also have to play on hard mode to get this payout and have a group of 4 players. The $4.2 million is before the fines and fees you will have to payout at the end of the heist.

The more players you add to the heist, the less you will be paid. According to the GTA Wiki page, the total amount of loot you can find in the Cayo Perico Heist is around $7.2 million. But you could never get that amount due to your carry limits. That is even if you get a group of 4 people.
