Warstock Cache & Carry, Kosatka Moon Pool Vehicle description.

The Kraken Avisa is a sub-aquatic vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Avisa is likely based on the U-Boat Worx NEMO and SEAmagine AURORA-6, seen in the front end and bubble cabin.

The Avisa distinguishes itself from the Submersible and Kraken by its compact design and the ample room for four occupants. On the front, the vehicle features two ends fitted with carbon-fiber details and glass cases, where the twin circular lamps are housed in. A chrome defense bar is mounted on these both ends, intended for protection against collisions. The front of the cabin follows the same bubble-like shape as the other two submersibles, but there are multiple circular lamps around it, along with additional twin circular lamps below.

On the sides, there are circular openings and side rear intakes housing small propellers, with the frontal ones being intended for the yawing capabilities, the middle ones for depth adjusting and the rear ones for propulsion, along with various markings displaying the vehicle's name and the manufacturer emblem. The cabin uses top-hinged glass access doors and silver/chrome frames separating each section of the cabin, along with a carbon-fiber frame passing over it. The rear area curves down to the rear end and has a vented section on the upper side, together with a carbon-fiber detail behind the cab area.

The rear end of the vehicle has a single red light strip and a thin vented section above it. The lower area has the corresponding open sections for the propellers and triangular fins below, as well as a rear defense on the lower center. Various markings displaying the vehicle's name and the manufacturer emblem can be seen here as well. Its underside mostly consist of a carbon-fiber bottom of the cabin, the lower frames of the vehicle and what seems to be the ballast tanks.

The interior of the submersible uses a set of dials derived from the V-65 Molotok, with the main dials above and the smaller display gauges below it, placed over a triangular-shaped panel that also mounts the controls on the left side. The primary color of the vehicle is applied on the body, while the secondary color is applied on the interior.

While the Avisa has an advantage of being able to carry four players (unlike the Kraken or Submersible) it is also significantly slower than any other submarine in the game. Players also require to correct its pitch angle and descend at the same time, as it tends to angle upwards when going at full speed. The lack of weapons or defense makes it very vulnerable to most weaponized vehicles, particularly the Kosatka, the Stromberg and the Toreador.


If the player has purchased the optional sonar station for their Kosatka, the Avisa gains the sonar function also. Pressing the sonar button will reveal the presence of the daily Hidden Caches which can be collected in the Avisa.

  • The Avisa is only available as a Moon Pool upgrade for the Kosatka submarine, on Warstock Cache & Carry. It costs $1,545,000.
    • Can be requested through the Interaction Menu under the "Kosatka Services", and spawns on the nearest shore or near the player when in the water, similar to the Dinghy available for Organizations and Kosatka owners. No cooldown timer is applied to the vehicle, so the player can request it immediately after being sent back to storage or destroyed.


Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Despite being shown in a variety of colors on the Rockstar Games Social Club preview images, it always comes in blue with a mostly white interior when bought, and it cannot be resprayed to any other color.
  • In first-person view, the camera is moved to the front of the vehicle instead of in the player character's head (similar to the APC), despite the Avisa having a fully-modelled interior with transparent windows, and thus no reason for doing so.
    • This was later changed in the Los Santos Tuners update, and the vehicle now allows a proper first-person view. However, it has a tendency to not switch back to third-person view, unless the player holds the cinematic view button and uses the camera switch button at the same time, or just uses the camera switch button when on the surface (as the camera automatically switches back to third-person view, like the other submersibles).
  • The side of the vehicle displays a maximum depth range of 2000 meters below sea level. However, it withstands only a fraction of this depth before reaching a crushing depth, being the same for all other submarine vehicles.


Grand Theft Auto Online

  • If requested the submersible when driving a car, the radio station in the driven car will instantly change to Music Locker Radio as the Avisa spawns.
