"A deadly shot. Don’t be precise. You won’t scuff the titanium nitride finish."
―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.
