GTA Online’s new Cayo Perico Heist has a bunch of exciting additions, including a very well-hidden Perico Pistol. Here’s how you can find it.

After months of anticipation, Grand Theft Auto Online got one of its biggest ever updates on December 15, 2020. The Cayo Perico Heist add-on includes a brand new island map expansion, plenty of new vehicles to discover, and even a cameo from Dr. Dre.

Described by Rockstar Games as the “biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition” the game has ever seen, the new heist takes players to the private party island of Cayo Perico, with the overall goal of stealing millions from drug lord El Rubio.

But there’s also a special weapon called the Perico Pistol that’s hidden somewhere on the island – and the location has now been discovered.

Where to find the Perico Pistol in GTA Online

The newly-added Perico Pistol is a single-shot pistol. It’s inspired by the iconic James Bond movie The Man With The Golden Gun, and it isn’t easy to find.

Before you can get your hands on the weapon, you’ll need to purchase the Kosatka submarine, which will grant you access to the Cayo Perico Heist. It will set you back $2.2 million, and can be purchased from Warstock Cache and Carry.

You’ll also need to find a key to the drawer containing the pistol. This can be found by looting a sleeping guard, who will appear in a random location during free roam. You’ll get the Small Key item once you do this.

The Perico Pistol is located inside a desk in El Rubio’s office. You can either take the stairs that surround the upper level of the building, which will leave you vulnerable to enemy fire, or use an elevator in the basement.

  1. Make your way to the compound without being detected by patrols or snipers.
  2. Infiltrate the compound through any of the entry points, and enter the main building.
  3. Make your way to El Rubio’s office by taking the stairs or finding the elevator in the basement.
  4. Enter El Rubio’s office.
  5. Loot the drawer on the right of the desk and you’ll find the Perico Pistol.

Only the person who collects the gun will be able to use it, so if you’re playing as part of a team, you’ll have to decide who gets their hands on it. You can, of course, replay the heist if you don’t get it on the first attempt.

It’s also worth pointing out that some players have claimed the weapon’s location can change, so you might be able to find it in multiple areas.

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.
