Cayo Perico heist is highly lucrative on its own but looting gold makes it even better. With the door glitch, you can do this solo so here is a quick rundown on how to do it.

Gold is the most valuable second target in Cayo Perico, which in turn is the most lucrative heist in GTA Online. With this loot, you can push your take to around GTA$ 1.5 million with Ruby Necklace primary or around 1.6 million if you found Bearer Bonds instead. In case you still have the Panther statue around, this number goes close to two million and all these takes are what you get after deductions for Pavel and the fence. Here is how to do it.

Gold locations in Cayo Perico

You can find gold bars in three warehouses in El Rubio's compound. The locations of these warehouses can be seen on the map below.

Keep in mind you will need to clear the surrounding guards to properly access the warehouse of your choosing or risk being detected. The juggernaut is the biggest annoyance here but you can easily take him down by sprinting from behind and just pressing the attack button when in close range. This will result in a one-hit melee KO.

Warehouse East

This warehouse will probably be the first one you can come across since it's immediately next to the drainage tunnel access point. Solo door glitch is mostly done on the door that you immediately face as you come up to the building from the drainage tunnel and it's the same door I will describe the lineup for.

First step is to approach the door while aiming your sidearm. Your character will put it in an upwards position as you get close to the door so make sure it lines up with the middle of the door as seen below.

When you're in this position, enter cover and turn your character to the right so their forehead lines up with the door carving.

When you're done with that, just turn the camera around to get the exact angle pictured below.

At that point, press the following input:

  • Keyboard & mouse - Hold A and RMB
  • PlayStation controller - Pull left analog stick to the left and press L2
  • Xbox controller - Pull left stick to the left and press LT

Warehouse West

Make sure you go to the eastern door of the warehouse, not the southern. The drill is the same with every warehouse, with slightly different positions. First line up the gun alongside the carving.

Enter cover and turn left if the character doesn't do it automatically and their forehead should line up next to the carving in the middle like on the picture.

At that point you can turn the camera for the final lineup.

Warehouse North

Once again, it's the same drill. Approach the western door, walk up with your gun out and line it up with the door carving.

Then line the camera up so the top side cuts off portions of the topmost tiles, left of centre.

Inputs here are the same as Warehouse West:

  • Keyboard & mouse - Hold D and RMB
  • PlayStation controller - Pull left analog stick to the right and press L2
  • Xbox controller - Pull left stick to the right and press LT

General input tips

If you can't get the doors to open on PC, I would suggest connecting a controller just for this as it's much easier. GTA Online handles control switching well and you can just plug the gamepad in mid-heist, use it to open the doors and then continue playing with keyboard and mouse. 

As for the input timings, the general rule of thumb is to push the stick just slightly before L2/LT. Once you push the buttons, hold them until the door is open. At that point, you won't be able to move so press R1/RB to exit cover and just go straight ahead to the loot room.
