GTA Online’s Cayo Perico update added a brand new selection of vehicles and one of the most expensive was the submarine, but you can use it to get cash back if you know what you’re doing. 

The game’s not only added huge underwater vehicles to the mix, equipped with lock-on rocket launchers, but also in an almost challenge-like way players who own one can start to hunt for treasure.

The actual name of this in-game is Hidden Caches, which are hidden in the depths of the sea.

Tracking them down isn’t the easiest thing in the world at first, though with the right setup, you will be farming treasure – which means cash and RP – in no time. It’s actually quite a simple process.

How to farm Hidden Caches in GTA Online

The GTA Online submarine can make you some serious money every week.

Firstly, it’s worth noting that there will be 10 of these Hidden Caches to find in GTA Online every day. Each one you tick off, you will get an RP boost and $7,500 cash per capture. That means you’re looking at $75,000 per day, if you play your cards right.

Follow the instructions below and you will be well on your way:

  1. Load up Grand Theft Auto 5 and enter GTA Online.
  2. Purchase the submarine from your iFruit phone.
  3. Go into upgrades and select the Sonar System, which will help you track down Hidden Caches.
  4. Purchase the mini Submarine option, allowing you to sound out the treasure in the big sub, and switch to the smaller one to collect it.
  5. Pick the nearest Hidden Cache and travel towards it – repeating this process to farm them.

They’re easy to spot once you have completed those steps.

As seen below, they appear in the water with easily recognizable icons.

How much are submarine upgrades?

Clearly, with a hefty $2.2 million price tag on the submarine, this isn’t going to be for everyone. Many members of the game’s online community will have a shed load of cash, because it’s been out for so long, making it a little more accessible than the absurd amount may perceive.

The Sonar System is $1.2 million and the added feature to store a Kraken Avisa submersible inside will cost an additional $1.54 million.

Upgrades list and prices

  • Color ($75,000)
  • Flag (Free)
  • Sonar Station ($1,200,000)
  • Guided Missiles ($1,900,000)
  • Weapon Workshop ($350,000)
  • Moon Pool Vehicles: Sparrow ($1,815,000) & Kraken Avisa ($1,545,000)

All in all, it’s quite expensive, but will make your ability to access new money on a daily basis that bit easier. That’s for sure.


Sailor Moon x Disney crossover Overwatch skin is the perfect fit for Mercy

One dedicated Overwatch fan and Mercy stan has come up with an awesomely creative skin design for the hero that mixes Sailor Moon and the Disney classic Snow White all into one.

Concepts for fairytale skins have been a favorite of Overwatch players almost since the game was introduced. While there are even a few oficial ones in Overwatch now (like Red Riding Hood Ashe and Dragon Mercy), there’s no way Blizzard would be able to keep up with all the ideas floating around out there.

That hasn’t stopped the artistically talented fans among us from adding on to that pile though, and one of the best we’ve seen lately is from artist u/aerisycloud. Their creation combines not not only Disney’s Snow White, but also everyone’s favorite Guardian of Earth, Sailor Moon, into a Mercy skin that fits the hero just perfectly.

Mercy Snow White skin concept
A skin that might even give Mercy’s pink skin a run for its money in popularity.

This skin would be one of the few that recasts Mercy as a brunette, obviously a nod to Snow White. The colors and materials are also reminiscent of the fairy tale, but the cut and boots are practically common-issue for the Sailor Scouts.

Her Cadecus Pistol and Staff, along with her wings, are now solid gold (whether this is with or without 3000 CP is unknown), which would also pass in an instant for accessories that Sailor Moon would rock.

We love seeing these kinds of skin concepts, especially ones as cool as this, but it can be easy to forget how much time and effort goes into each one. To show us how much work it took, along with the finished product, aerisycloud also posted a time-lapse of their creation – which is worth watching in its own right.

If this skin were to be made, it’d also be neat to see a Torbjorn skin featuring him as one of the Seven Dwarfs (Grumpy, preferably), and a voice clip along the lines of “Moon healing… escalation!” as a nod towards the anime.

As far as actual in-game skins go, you can currently unlock the new Kyogisha Hanzo skin until January 25, and the 2021 Lunar New Year event — which brings a ton of new skins with it — should get going shortly after that wraps up.
