GTA Online Criminal Enterprises: Operation Paper Trail

The new GTA update adds a set of 6 new Undercover Missions, called "Operation Paper Trail", that present the opportunity to be sworn in as special IAA agents to investigate a criminal conspiracy.

The sudden spike in gas prices has caught the attention of the IAA, who suspect the corrupt Duggan petrochemical family is rigging the system in their favor, and they’re going to need you to help them put the pieces together.

Agent ULP will get in touch to start Operation Paper Trail, which can be accessed by 1-4 players outside the IAA Headquarters.

Note: GTA+ Members receive a 50% extra GTA$ and RP when playing Operation Paper Trail.

GTA Online Summer Update 2022: New Cayo Perico Activities

As found by famous data miner TezFunz2, the game code has new Daily Collectibles called "Buried Stashes", with the coordinates located across the Cayo Perico Map.

These new collectibles may be enabled in the new GTA Update. They also reference a Metal Detector needed for locating the Stashes.

In addition, the official Criminal Enterprises Trailer, which can be seen below, showcased new Races taking place on Cayo Perico.

This could potentially mean that the Cayo Perico island may be opened for free-roam exploration, instead of being restricted to the Heist missions. Cayo Perico becoming freely playable would definitely be a welcomed addition to the game.

Next GTA Update: GTA Online Movie DLC with Michael?

In recent weeks, a series of teases pointed to Michael De Santa appearing in GTA Online in an upcoming, movie-themed DLC.

This included Movie References in the recent Vespucci Job (Remix) mode, the earlier Franklin's mention of Michael during The Contract DLC, and Michael's actor Ned Luke himself teasing his appearance.

The speculation was also fueled by Rockstar Games adding a new NPC spawn point with a ped model named 'movie_set', in front of Record A Studios in Rockford Hills - as discovered by TezFunz2.

As Rockstar has a history of spawning certain events or objects to tease DLCs in the months leading up to their release, this led the community to believe that Movie DLC featuring Michael could be the focus of the next GTA Online update.

However, more recent findings by TezFunz2 seem to indicate that the Michael DLC will actually be kept for the December 2022 update.
