Seeing that your cargo drop has been blown up or destroyed before you had the chance to claim it can be very annoying in Grand Theft Auto V, but there’s one way players can actually get them back. 

These special cargo drops, CEO crates, and stock packages can be destroyed quite easily by other online players, who simply have to track them down on the map.


However, in doing that, those who stand to lose the most are those trying to reap the rewards of getting one delivered safely. Thankfully for those people, one player has discovered a way to make the problem a thing of the past.

How to get back destroyed Special Cargo, CEO crates, and stocks

Taking your CEO crate, Special Cargo, or general stock from A to B can be difficult in GTA Online. This trick, however, gives you a safety net.

To put things in perspective, each Special Cargo drop can sell for up to $150,000 in-game, so seeing that burn away can be a nightmare.

YouTuber Bipolar Gamers, who has just over 3,000 subscribers on their channel, has released a video that shows how to get back the valuables that have been blown up.


Below we’ve put together the main points from his video, with a step-by-step guide.

  1. Drive around with your CEO stock (or other cargo) until another online player comes on the attack.
  2. Wait until they have blown up the vehicle carrying the load.
  3. From there, you need to close your game application or disconnect internet connection immediately.
  4. You will then respawn in single-player mode. Reconnect internet or load up the app to restart.
  5. Head back into GTA Online and your cargo drop should still be active, ready for another attempt to cash in on it.

The informative video can be seen below, but it’s unknown at this time whether this is something that will be patched by Rockstar Games in the future.

During the clip, the YouTuber says: “I’m not sure if you would label this as a glitch, or an exploit, but basically what this allows you to do is keep your CEO, or special cargo, stock, all that good stuff even after it’s been blown up.”


GTA Online: How much do Special Cargo, CEO crates, and stock sell for?

If you’re wondering about the potentially lost returns on your work, should your cargo get blown up, we’ve included all values below for you.

  • Special Cargo drop: Up to $150,000
  • CEO Crates: Prices increase per amount delivered, from $10,000 (for one) to $$1,950,000 (for 100).
  • Stock: Again, it depends on the amount. Without upgrades, $125,000 for 25 in Blaine County. For 100, without upgrades, it could be around $500,000.

So, there you have it! That’s how you can move from one place to another with your valuable cargo without fearing the worst, even after being blown up.

It’s a safety net for now, but there’s no way of predicting if this will be removed in the future. So, give it a try and hopefully it saves you plenty of time – usually spent getting these drops in the first place.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
