The Heist Replay Glitch is an exploit that has been around for years, but Rockstar never patches it and players don't get banned for abusing it. With the introduction of a long cooldown period for the Cayo Perico Heist, the use of this glitch is needed more than ever.
Therefore, in this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase a complete guide on how to do the Cayo Perico Heist Replay glitch in GTA Online.
Preparation for the glitch
Firstly, players need to complete the prep missions beforehand. Afterward, play the finale of the Cayo Perico Heist, all the way up to when they take the primary loot.
If the player is in a team do the below actions:
- Run to the righthand into the body of water.
- Keep swimming until the text on the bottom of the screen vanishes.
On the other hand, if the player are doing the heist solo, do the below actions:
- Take the motorcycle at the entrance and drive toward the marked area on the map below.
- Drive off the cliff into the body of water, and swim into the middle of the path with the mines nearby.
How to do Cayo Perico Heist Replay Glitch
This step is based on the system the player is playing GTA Online on.
Xbox and PlayStation glitch
Once the cutscene begins, console users (Xbox and PlayStation) can just close the application as soon as they receive the brown envelope in the cutscene.
While the host will not get any money for the heist doing this glitch, the rest of the team would get their respective shares. While the host gets the short end of the stick, multiple players can take turns being the host in order to give everyone the same benefit.
On PC, instead of closing the application, players can just disconnect their Internet once they see the "Heist Passed" message. This can be done quickly by either physically unplugging the ethernet cable or turning off Wi-Fi.
Unlike the console glitch, the host still gets the cash on the PC version. This allows players to grind Cayo Perico solo as much as they want without the help of any other player.
About the glitch
Overall, this heist glitch is based on the syncing process of the game client and the server, which is very troublesome to patch out. If Rockstar patches it out, lagging players would lose their process much more often, which might lead to player outrage. That's why it has been in the game for quite a while now.
It works on pretty much everything with a cooldown in GTA Online, except for the Casino's 24 hour wheel.
