Now, this is old friend of mine. Viktor Sokolov. Once upon a time, Spetsnaz.
Now, the finest unaffiliated sniper in the world, at reasonable price to an old friend.

Viktor Sokolov is a minor character appearing as a heist support crew member in Grand Theft Auto Online.


Pavel claims Viktor was once Spetsnaz (Russian special forces) but is now a mercenary for hire, the finest unaffiliated sniper available.

Events of GTA Online

The Cayo Perico Heist

Viktor is an available support crew member for The Cayo Perico Heist through his association with Pavel. He can provide sniper support on Cayo Perico through the Interaction Menu for $25,000 once the player has neutralized the air defenses. He does not have a 100% hit rate and can cause the alarm to be raised against an otherwise undetected player.
