"Aha, yes, yes, yes. This tower provides main coordinates of air defenses. You disable this when you are here for main operation, and we have some... interesting options. Maybe we can bring in reinforcements. I have some contacts who would be interested, I think!"
The Control Tower of the airstrip plays a role in The Cayo Perico Heist finale – it can be used to disable the island's air defenses via VOLTlabhacking, allowing players to call in any hired support crew members or use the airstrip to escape during the heist. It is marked down for all subsequent heists after completing the first playthrough. The player must have bolt cutters or a cutting torch to open the gate to get access to the tower's signal box.
Five of the support crew members require the player to disable the island's air defenses during the heist for them to be available for use via the Interaction Menu.
