Changing your target in the GTA Online Cayo Perico heist might not look possible, but there’s a very handy trick that could land you more Pink Diamonds and Panther statues. 

It’s all well and good hoping for Diamonds or Panther statues in Grand Theft Auto, yet quite often you will be on the receiving end of a much smaller prize – like a pesky bottle of that Sinsimito Tequila.

The rarer targets in this lucrative theft mission are not available all of the time, but when they are it’s definitely advantageous if you know how to select them.

In order to do that, here are a few steps you should follow.

1. Visit your Apartment in GTA Online, go to the heist setup room and start the job
