The Panther Statue in GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist is worth a massive amount of money in the game, and we’ve got everything you need to know about it right here including whether or not it’s currently available in the game. 

The majority of Grand Theft Auto Online’s heist content features a pretty linear structure: you identify a target, charge in, and steal it while evading the police and getting out of there.

Things changed with the Diamond Casino Heist as Rockstar Games added a few variations in terms of how you approach the robbery and the setup. Things were taken up a notch with the Cayo Perico Heist as well, giving you the option to perform it as a solo player – even though it was a bit more difficult.

One thing that the game’s two heists have in common is the fact that you can go after different targets. In the Diamond Casino Heists, actual diamonds are the best thing you can go after, whereas, in the Cayo Perico Heist, it’s the Panther Statue in the Cayo Perico Heist.
