Can you still get the panther statue in GTA Online? Yes, but currently the panther statue is not available in GTA Online. The last time the panther statue was available in GTA Online was following the Weekly Update, during the November 25, 2021 event week.
As of the latest GTA Online Weekly Update on September 29, the panther Statue is still not available. It means that at the time of writing, it’s been over 9 months since the Panther Statue was last in the Cayo Perico Heist.
With that in mind, anyone asking the question ‘When is the Panther Statue Coming Back To GTA Online‘ might as well stop asking and keep their eyes on the new event week every Thursday. With any luck, Rockstar will hold another ‘Panther Statue Week’ in the future.
How to get the Panther Statue in GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist?
First of all, before you waste a lot of time make sure that the panther statue is in GTA Online. Rockstar Games will only add the Panther Statue during special event weeks and we’ll be sure to keep this page updated on when it is available to steal in the Cayo Perico Heist.
Assuming you’re reading this during an event week in GTA Online where Rockstar has made the Panther Statue active, then it will likely be guaranteed the first time you take on the heist.
After this one-time guaranteed chance for the event week is used, the game will return to its normal formula of mixing up the potential heist targets, and the Panther Statue generally has the lowest odds of appearing out of all the main heist targets. Yes, it’s even rarer than the Pink Diamond.
While the Panther Statue is one of the most lucrative rewards in the Cayo Perico heist, you’re not always guaranteed to get it. You’ll need to change your target to be able to see if it’s available or not and restart the mission if you don’t see one of two targets.
Follow these steps to get the panther statue in GTA Online:
- Go to your heist setup room in GTA Online
- Begin your usual Cayo Perico Heist prep work
- Start the Gathering Intel mission and eventually hack the camera system to see what is inside the vault
- If it’s not a Panther Statue, restart the mission. You’ll lose the $25000 setup cost, but you’ll save time doing a heist with a worse payout
- If the Panther Statue is in the vault, start the Cayo Perico Heist
- Steal the Panther Statue to earn 1.9 million
How much is the Panther statue worth?
The Panther statue is worth $1.9 million in GTA Online when played on the Cayo Perico Heist ‘Hard’ difficulty.
When players play the Cayo Perico heist on normal difficulty, the Panther statue is worth $1.73M.
As a reminder, players who attempt the heist on Hard mode will face the following challenges:
- More cameras
- More guards outside the compound
- Another fingerprint scan to bypass
- You only have one life, not two
The upshot is you’ll receive an extra 10% payout on your primary loot (which is quite a lot if you’re stealing the Panther Statue). It’s also worth considering that if you’re experienced enough to complete the Cayo Perico heist undetected on normal, you’re probably more than capable of taking on hard mode without too much trouble.
