For the first time ever players have the option to complete a Heist completely solo.

This will increase the difficulty dramatically as you won't have teammates to back you up and get you out of a tight situation.

But if you've got the skill, you can take home all of the pie.


The same payout amount applies when playing solo too.

$1,078,000 is the baseline payout, and $4,570,600 is the maximum you can receive if you complete every optional objective.

Double Payout

From now until February 11th, payouts on the Cayo Perico Heists will be doubled.

This means that you have the potential of earning up to $9,141,200 if playing solo, that is a stupid amount of money for one heist.

If there's anything you've had your eye on in GTA Online, now is the perfect time to grind for it.
