GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist: All Secondary Target Locations

Steal extra loot to increase your Cayo Perico Heist payout.

by Diego Perez , Drew Kopp

The Cayo Perico Heist in GTA Online has many secondary targets you can steal in addition to the Madrazo files, which can increase the heist payout significantly. The only problem is that you must find them yourself, which can be a massive pain with the guards roaming everywhere.

To make matters worse, the items and spawn locations are randomized for every player, so certain places where some players can find loot will be empty for others. Here are all the secondary targets for the Cayo Perico Heist in GTA Online.

All Secondary Targets in the GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist

There are more than 20 secondary targets in the Cayo Perico Heist, meaning you can bring home much more than just the Madrazo files. Getting out with millions in valuables will be difficult, but it’s doable with a coordinated team. Scoping the island out is the first step, however, and goods are hidden everywhere. You can see the spawn locations in the video below, or keep reading for detailed descriptions of secondary target spawn locations.

Camera Secondary Targets

There are five secondary targets in the Cayo Perico Heist: Cocaine, Weed, Gold, Art, and Cash. These items can be found scattered throughout the Cayo Perico island, although their locations will be random for every player. There is a list of set spawn locations for these targets, but remember that some of these will be empty due to their random nature. Also, Cash and Gold are interchangeable and can spawn in the exact locations, so this guide will simply refer to them as “Loot” when discussing potential spawn locations.

The first step is to check the island’s cameras for things you can steal. Pull up your in-game smartphone and open the Sightseer app to access the security camera network. Here are all the secondary targets you can find on the Cayo Perico cameras:

  • Basement – Primary Target
  • Basement Storage – Two Loot/Two Paintings
  • Office Cam 1 – One Painting
  • Office Cam 2 – One Painting
  • West Storage Cam 1 – One Loot/One Painting
  • West Storage Cam 2 – One Loot
  • North Storage Cam 1 – One Loot/Painting
  • North Storage Cam 2 – One Loot
  • South Storage Cam 1 – One Loot
  • South Storage Cam 2 – One Loot/Painting

Be sure to fully scope out each room by rotating the cameras as far as you can left and right so you don’t miss anything.

Airstrip Secondary Targets

Six possible secondary targets in the Airstrip in the northwestern part of the Cayo Perico island exist.

  • Directly inside of the hangar (2)
  • Hidden at the top of a ladder in the hangar (2)
  • In a building south of the pilot (2)

Secondary targets typically spawn on top of tables hidden out of reach behind chainlink fences. Each spawns in pairs, so snap pictures of both items in each area. Again, spawns are random for everyone, so some tables might be empty, and the targets could be different every time.

North Dock Secondary Targets

There are five possible secondary targets in the North Dock to the east of the Airstrip of the Cayo Perico island.

  • In the southernmost building near a security camera (3)
  • In a building near the northeastern security camera by the grappling hook (2)

There are a lot of valuable items here, like bolt cutters, a grappling hook, and guard clothing, but the valuables are the main attraction. Watch out for the guards and security cameras.

Nine possible secondary targets in the Central Complex are located in the heart of the Cayo Perico island.

  • Behind a gate in the northwestern part of the Central Complex by a security camera (3)
  • In a T-shaped building across from the Main Dock by the bend in the road (2)
  • In a small shed just south of the Main Dock to the west of a security camera (2)
