A simple GTA Online trick allows you to bring Pegasus vehicles into the Cayo Perico heist setup missions, letting you get around the new island pretty quickly. 

After months of waiting, Rockstar Games finally released their newest heist in a brand-new location – The Cayo Perico Heist. 

The heist revolves around a cartel member known as El Rubio as you’re tasked with infiltrating the island of Cayo Perico, stealing some goods, and getting out alive – either by yourself or in tandem with some other players.

Given that it’s the most lucrative of all the GTA Online heists, players have been flocking to the new job in search of riches, with some finding neat tricks to find secret weapons, racking up more cash, and do things without being suspected by the armored guards.

How to get Pegasus vehicles on Cayo Perico

Another one of these clever tricks comes in the form of using vehicles from Pegasus to scout out the island. That’s right, you can use any vehicle that requires you to speak to Pegasus about in the heist.

It just has to be able to float on water, so the Dodo plane is the best bet – or a boat. Though, there are guards in the water that will finish you off, and you can’t use the weapons – so don’t get any ideas about using the new Kurtz gunboat. 

Alls you have to do then, is collect the vehicle, fly on the very bottom of the right-hand side of the map, leave it in the water and then kill yourself. Once you then go to Cayo Perico, the vehicle should be waiting for you on the coast. 

Additionally, you can also use your Kosatka submarine to tick off certain disruption prep missions.

That includes the attack helicopters one where, if you have guided missiles unlocked in your sub, you can use them to take out the choppers instead of doing it another way and then dying over and over. 

While these tips and tricks are pretty harmless, Rockstar could shut them down at any time with a quick patch – especially if players find ways to manipulate the heist even further. 

So, we’ll have to keep an eye out for any hotfixes or full-blown patches that might be released in the future.

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.

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.
