Plasma Cutter is a prep mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist update, and a freeroam mission that can be completed at any time while The Cayo Perico Heist strand is active.
It is a mandatory mission that must be completed in order to progress to the finale. However, it will only be active in the heist strand if the player discovers the primary target to be in the display case inside the compound vault during the Gather Intel mission.
Pavel tells the player that the display case is heavily reinforced and the only way to break it without destroying the valuables inside is with a specialized plasma cutter. Pavel also tells the player that he was informed by Miguel Madrazo a group of robbers has a plasma cutter.
Once inside, Pavel realizes that there is nobody inside and that they may have started their job sooner, so he instructs the player to find any intel of the gang's whereabouts. Eventually, the player finds and takes a photo of a planning board showing three possible locations (one in Del Perro and two in Rockford Hills), then sending it to Pavel.
After sending the photo of the planning board and leaving the gang's safe house, Pavel finds the location of the gang, and the player is instructed to move there. There will be several gang members around the site, who will open fire at the player on sight, while additional reinforcements will arrive in two Fugitives (each one with two gang members, up to 3–4 groups). The player can optionally take out the enemies, pick up the plasma cutter and deliver it to the Kosatka to complete the mission.
