A deadly shot. Don’t be precise. You won’t scuff the titanium nitride finish.
Ammu-Nation and Social Club description.

The Perico Pistol is a handgun in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist update.

This weapon is Juan Strickler’s prized sidearm, and can be stolen by the player during The Cayo Perico Heist.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Perico Pistol appears to be based on a German P08 Luger pistol grip, though it lacks any trigger guard, toggle locking mechanism, and is breech loaded as opposed to being magazine fed. A similar golden engraved Luger was owned by German politician Franz von Papen.[1] The front sight, barrel and chamber design appear to be styled after The Golden Gun from the James Bond film adaptation, The Man with the Golden Gun.

In-game, the Perico Pistol is an antique handgun that features a rounded ivory grip, printed with a shield insignia on a gold circle. The handgun's loading mechanism and barrel is made of gold. It has additional engravings with the german words "MIT OFFENEN ARMEN" on the barrel, translated as "With Open Arms".

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Functionally, the Perico Pistol behaves and performs similarly to the Marksman Pistol. It fires and loads a single round that boasts immense damage, with the added drawback that it has to reload with every shot and lacks the accuracy and range to effectively deal with targets at farther distances.

Location

The Perico Pistol can be found in Juan Strickler's private office during the Cayo Perico Heist Finale, hidden within his desk.

In order to access the weapon, one must find the respective key in order to open the drawer containing the Perico Pistol. The key can be found in a Random Event of a sleeping guard that can be looted by the player. The event can happen at Del Perro Pier, Boulevard Del Perro, Rancho, Mission Row, Pitchers bar in Downtown Vinewood, East Joshua Road, Hookies bar in North Chumash, Yellow Jack Inn near Sandy Shores and Duluoz Avenue in Paleto Bay, the Rob's Liquor store in Great Ocean Highway and the Fleeca Bank, Great Ocean Highway.

After unlocking it, the weapon can be found in Ammu-Nation, although the only option for purchase is the ammo, where 2 rounds cost $5.

Trivia

  • In the film, The Man with the Golden Gun, the Golden Gun was designed and owned by the fictional Francisco Scaramanga, a wealthy Spanish assassin who owns a private island, sharing similarities with Juan Strickler. The similarities are closer in the original Ian Fleming novel in which Scaramanga's island is located in the Caribbean (the film's island is located somewhere near Thailand).
    • The location where the Perico Pistol is found resembles the office from the film where Francisco uses the Golden Gun to eliminate his (former) employer, Hai Fat.
  • When obtaining the key from the sleeping guard, the player is also awarded $7,007, another reference to James Bond 007. Even after obtaining the key and the pistol, players can continue to loot the guard when he spawns for a further $7,007 each time.
