SecuroServ-GTAO-SpecialCargoMission

Special Cargo option on the SecuroServ computer as of the Import/Export update which overhauled the site's layout.

Special Cargo is a CEO mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update.

Description[]

Special Cargo Buy missions are dangerous, multi-part missions that call for a coordinated team of Associates to complete successfully. Buy missions range in scope and size, from police stings to high-speed pursuits, helicopter ambushes and more.
Rockstar Newswire description

Special Cargo missions take place across the state, and involve the player stealing cargo initially purchased, and storing them in crates within their Warehouses. When exporting them, the player can select the number of crates they wish to export (or all of them at once), which will bring a total amount of money that the buyer will give the player upon delivery.

Every so often, unique Special Cargo may be found - this cargo is worth a great deal more than regular cargo, with one crate often selling up to $150,000. Note that as this is even more special, it costs more to buy it.

Buy Special Cargo[]

SercuroServ-GTAO-BuySpecialCargo

Option to buy Special Cargo on SecuroServ. The product may vary, although the prices always remain the same.


Buy missions are the missions the player completes to get special cargo crates in their Warehouse. These missions can be started from their office at the SecuroServ terminal. The player can select the amount of crates they want to source and store:

  • 1 crate = $2,000
  • 2 crates = $8,000 ($4,000 per crate)
  • 3 crates = $18,000 ($6,000 per crate)

It should be noted that players can only pick up one crate at a time, so they have to deliver it to their warehouse and pick the others. However, the player is usually tasked to pick a vehicle with 2 or 3 crates at once, being an ideal option to complete the mission quicker. However, regardless of the choice, the cargo's location will be notified to rival players in the session, which are given the option to destroy the cargo for a small amount of cash and RP.

The missions have a cooldown which is the same regardless of what level (amount of crates) mission is launched, so it is generally recommended to attempt the highest level/amount missions. It should be noted that the cooldown timer is applied to the warehouse the player selects to store the cargo, so if they own more than one warehouse, they can launch another buy mission for that warehouse and repeat the process.

After The Criminal Enterprises update, players can also send Lupe or their Warehouse Staff member to source random cargo for $7,500 each trip. Warehouse Staff takes one game day (48 mins IRL time) to source the cargo, and sometimes, special items can also be sourced. They randomly accrue from one to four crates (three normal crates + one special item). The option of Special Cargo sourcing will be disabled if the warehouse is full, and if the warehouse has special cargo sourcing active and the warehouse becomes full during this time, the player will get a notification saying "There was no space to store the special cargo your staff has sourced".

Products[]

Products which the player can buy include:

  • Animal Materials
  • Art & Antiques
  • Bullion
  • Counterfeit Goods
  • Electronic Goods

  • Medical Supplies

  • Tobacco & Alcohol

Special Items[]

Occasionally, the Assistant will call the player to tell them about a Special Item on the SecuroServ Network. This Item is more expensive, but will also bring in more profit once sold. The special item sells 5x of its costs, and unlike the normal products, the special items will not increase the value as the item number increases. The following is a list for the special items:

Sell Special Cargo[]

Main article: Ad-Hawk


Exporting Special Cargo will require the player to access the Ad-Hawk laptop computer inside the Warehouse and choose the amount of cargo to sell. The cargo can be exported via three different methods of transport; land, sea, or air. On land, Brickade trucks may be used to contain large amounts of cargo, although more often than not, multiple Brickades may need to be delivered. There is usually enough time for a single player to deliver more than one truck, but having an associate is recommended. On water, the Tug boat may be used to export products out at sea, while in air, the Titan or Cuban 800 may be used to drop cargo to destination(s). All vehicles used for the sell missions can be previously upgraded at the work bench inside each warehouse to ensure better possibilities to complete a sale.

Again, like in source missions, the cargo will be marked to rival players in public sessions and they can opt to sabotage the vehicle. Vehicles generally have increased resistance against most forms of attacks, but players themselves may be still vulnerable to gunfire, thus leaving the vehicle vulnerable and risking to lose all products.

See Also[]

  • Vehicle Cargo - Import/Export update expansion, allowing the player to import and export vehicles in a similar fashion to Special Cargo.

Trivia[]

  • If an associate destroys their own CEO's Special Cargo, it may result in that player's immediate removal from the Organization and them being placed on a blacklist, temporarily preventing them from starting or joining an organization through SecuroServ.
