- "Mr. Rubio's front door is not ordinary front door. From our reconnaissance, it looks like reinforced security gate. Ordinary explosives are no good in such a case. We will need high density demolition charge. However, the only source in the state was recently purchased by some hillbilly gang up in the desert. We will need to do hostile acquisition."
- ―One of Pavel's briefings.
Demolition Charges is a prep mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the The Cayo Perico Heist update, and a freeroam mission that can be completed at any time while the The Cayo Perico Heist strand is active. It is one of the five missions in the equipment category that is mandatory for completion.
Completing this setup allows players to be able to use demolition charges on the front gate of El Rubio's Compound and on gates of secondary target lock-ups and the Control Tower in the finale. The equipment can be stolen by rival players during the mission, whilst the charges are being transported back to the drop-off site.
Pavel reveals that they will need special demolition charges if they wish to breach the main gate of the compound on Cayo Perico. He quickly reveals that members of the O'Neil Brothers have acquired some, and sends players out to deal with them and bring the charges back to the Kosatka. However, once the charges are acquired, players must not only deal with the O'Neil Brothers pursuing them, but also rival players - this is the case, if the mission is conducted during a Friends, Invite Only, or Public session.
Pavel informs the protagonist that the main gate of Juan Strickler's compound can only be breached by specialised demolition charges, but that a group of hicks from the O'Neil Brothers recently secured some. Players are tasked with heading to a marked location where some of the gang can be found and deal with them. However, after taking all targets down, they quickly find they have no charges on them, leading Pavel to direct them to the O'Neil Ranch.
Upon arriving, players must deal with hostile gang members inside the main farmhouse and seek out the basement. Upon finding it locked by a shutter door, they must kill one of the gang members for a keycard in order to access the basement, whereupon they will find two knife wielding hostiles before locating the charges. Once the charges are collected, players must return the equipment to the Kosatka.
During this time, they must not only deal with any pursuing gang members, but any player not working for them will be notified of them transporting the equipment. If the player carrying the charges is killed, they or any fellow teammates must recover them, before the item is destroyed or stolen by a rival player to their respective drop-off point. The mission is completed once the player with the charges enters the submarine.
