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.

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.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

Owning a bunker will unlock GTA Online’s Gunrunning business options.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players.

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
