Is Going SOLO Is The Best Way To Make Money In Cayo Perico Heist??


Recommended Posts

So i have a Cayo Perico Heist (Pink Diamond) on Hard mode + 6 piles of gold

So i wondered what is the best amount i can take from this heist if i done it with

1 Player (100%)

2 Players (85%)

3 Players (70%)

4 Players (55%)

With secondary target just Gold

 

https://imgur.com/9LKXRWZ

 

From (http://gta.fandom.com) Gold is between ($328,584-$333,192) for one pile
So i estimated the pile to be around ($300,000k)
NOTE: I didn't calculate (Setup fee - The Safe - Elite Challenge - Fence fee or Pavel fee)
Feel free to correct any mistake i did.

Save yourself a lot of pointless work. just get in the Longfin, clean out the airport then head for the drainage tunnel.

 

There are 6 secondaries at the airport, it's very rare indeed that you won't fill your lootbag.

 

Shame they despawned the boats when leaving the compound, it's taken some of the fun out of it.

6? I only thought there were four. The only one's I've gotten are the two in the lower cage and the two you access up top using the forklift.

2 players always worked out well for me, more get the game chrashed or the team went rogue. Experienced players might not accept 15% cut though.

The thing is i always done it solo (get 2 coco then main target) cause i thought this is the better way for me , then my friend joined gta online recently and of course he wanted to make some money so he can buy his own kosatka so i invited him to most of my heists (we took only gold) and i founded that i actually make more money this way

btw: my friend got pretty good at the heist and got his kosatka and more than 60m

he still takes 15% and i take 15% from his heist

 

So when i was gathering intel last night and got those 6 piles of gold i asked myself (Is more player will get me more money?)

and i found out the results are pretty weird

You need to set the other players to either 15% or 20% and then max out on Secondary Loot for it to really be more financially viable doing it with other players than doing it on your own. Use the table below as an example.

4 in the hangar then 2 in the shack on near the Power Station.

Okay, it's better with Gold - but always remember that the more players you add to the heist, the less likely it is to go smoothly. Even lag spikes or internet anomalies can cause some shots not to register properly, or whatever.

Thanks for that example but i really wanted to know What is the best way to make the most profit is possible for not just The Pink Diamond but for all other targets as well

 

and i found that the more the target worth the less players needed

Well the table is just an indication of how to get the most profit. The one other player if doing it as a pair, might not be happy accepting less than 25%. 

Another example:

Spoiler

 

Sinsimito Tequila on Normal = $900,000
+ Gold Loot @ $500,000 = total of $1,400,000

 

2 players:
$500,000 x2 = $1,000,000 + Sinsimito Tequila = $1,900,000
If you give the other player 30%, or more, you will get less money than if you did the heist solo. 

 

3 players:
$500,000 x3 = $1,500,000 + Sinsimito Tequila = $2,400,000
If you give the two other players a fair and equal 25% cut and take 50% yourself, you will get less money than if you did the heist solo. 

 

4 players:
$500,000 x4 = $2,000,000 + Sinsimito Tequila = $2,900,000
At this level, with a fair and equal share being considered, the 3 other players MUST take 15% or you'll get less money than if you did the heist solo. 

 

 

For your numbers:

 

Pink Diamond on Hard Mode = $1,430,000
Just gold and solo means you need to glitch the game to grab the Gold, but if you do and you get $500,000 from it then the total is obviously $1,930,000.

 

2 Players, where you take 85%:
$500,000 x2 + $1,430,000 = $2,430,000
85% of that = $2,065,500

 

3 players where you take 70%:
$500,000 x3 + $1,430,000 = $2,930,000
70% of that = $2,051,000

 

4 players where you take 55%:
$500,000 x4 + $1,430,000 = $3,430,000
55% of that = $1,886,500

Well the thing is Me and my friends don't take more than 15% from each other heists

And i already know what's is the best for me after doing that calculation  https://imgur.com/9LKXRWZ

And i just posted that calculation here to help other people 🙂

I think two players and 85/15 cut ist the optimum. BTW I need to know how much space in the bag a stash of gold is, is it 2/3? Or rather 5/8 since weed is 3/8 and not 2/3 as I first thought.

 

Money is 1/4

Weed is 3/8

Cocaine and art are 1/2

Is going Solo the best way? Depends if you can get into the compound storages alone.

Without glitches, 2 players is optimal. If you go solo, you will have to fill your bags on the island for the elite challenge, and that may take longer.

Add any more players, and you just increase the chance of mission failure. Either someone gets spotted, or disconnected, or someone misses a shot because of lag (for this reason I never shoot anyone inside the compound, meelee only. Just kidding, I have bad aim)

Gold is 2/3. With 2 players, you get full bags from 3 stacks total.

Optimum cuts depend on the value of the main target

With 2 players, I'd pay 15% with Panther statue, 20% with pink diamond, 25% with Tequilla.

And this is why I haven't done the heist with 4 players yet. I might do it once, for the achievement, and then never again.

I always accept 15% on Cayo Perico. It is take it or leave it, the host can always start without you.

Looks like you already know the best way to make money. A competent two-player team that shares loot equally is indeed the best. You save some time and make some more money by getting the gold in the compound. (This can be glitched solo but it is tricky.)

 

By the way, the Diamond Casino heist is also a great money maker with this two-player approach, but you should always skip cash as loot. (I.e. redo the scoping mission, but there is also a glitch to easily get the loot you want.) You need an arcade to play this heist. I'd actually say this heist is more fun than Cayo Perico. The Diamond Casino heist has more variation and more things to master.

I always do Diamond Casino heist with 2 players Artwork on hard mode(85%/15%)

 

Big Con Gruppe Sechs with Elite

or

Silent and Sneaky without Elite but i get the Daily Cash 2 times

 

and i always get the Drills for safety deposit boxes in both approaches

and i do them with (Karl) as gunman , (karim) as drive  and (Avi) as a hacker

 

for the big con i get around 1.650.000$ or 1.690.000$ Plus extra 100k so 1.750.000$ or 1.790.000$ as (85%)

and Silent and Sneaky i can get up to 1.800.000$ as (85%)
