GTA Online player discovers Oppressor MK2’s secret ability

The Oppressor MK2 is right up there with the most popular vehicles in GTA Online, but one player has discovered a secret ability that not a lot of people will know about. 

Flying around on a bike isn’t possible in every video game, but GTA 5’s Pegassi manufactured something smoking hot with the MK2. Costing a whopping $3,890,250 in-game, from Warstock Cache & Carry, the Oppressor allows players to zoom around as they please near the road or high in the sky.

In terms of its known abilities, the hover bike works much like a hovercraft over water, has a huge rocket boost that can take it up to 135mph, includes machine guns and also rocket launchers – which can easily dispose of unarmored vehicles at will.

The Oppressor MK2 in GTA Online can hit insane speeds, due to its built in boost function.

However, Reddit user BungMcSkrungkins has found a strange trait that can only really be pulled off in very specific circumstances – and it’s actually quite funny.

When you think about the MK2, you think about seeing them zooming around overhead in Los Santos, perhaps even wreaking havoc with its weapons, but apparently you can also use it to hang underneath bridges like a bat.

One thing is for sure, based on the clip below, suspecting players would never see you coming.

Striking when opponents least expect it is very effective in GTA Online and this tactic, if pulled off correctly, allows you to see not just what’s coming below, but also see through the road on the bridge too. Also, whether or not this will be patched out in a future update remains to be seen.

One thing that can happen is that the player when attempting the trick can actually be thrown off the bike. To avoid this, the Reddit user suggests a quick trick of snapping into the iFruit menu to avoid damage. After exiting the phone, you can see that they are left hanging.

What’s unclear about this whole thing, though, is how long you’re actually stuck upside down. It could be an amazing way of escaping a chase, but it might be totally ineffective if you’re stuck here forever…

Rockstar Games have dropped another background update for GTA Online, with this one dealing with the Mobile Operations Centre duplication exploit. 

There are plenty of ways to play Grand Theft Auto Online, and while many players are all about grinding, there are many others who look for a shortcut so that they can get cash quickly.

We’ve seen this previously with glitched jobs, being able to cash ridiculous amounts of casino chips for cash, and finding a workaround for the cooldown on selling cars at the Los Santos Customs mod shops. 

In recent weeks, players have found a way to duplicate cars using the Mobile Operations Centre. This means that they can reproduce unlimited numbers of cars and then sell them on to make cash.

The Mobile Operations Centre has been the key to some big exploits in GTA Online.

However, Rockstar Games have now released a background update that has patched the workaround that players had been using for the duplication glitch.

Rockstar insider TezFun revealed this on October 8, noting that it wasn’t the only thing that the GTA Online developers had added to the multiplayer side of GTA V with this small hotfix. 

TezFun noted that they’d also added a fix to address some issues with Business Battles. Numerous issues had been cropping up in sessions where, as a player was on a mission, if a Business Battle started, they’d be unable to complete the other job.

With this hotfix coming as a part of a background update, you don’t have to worry about a big download before jumping back into Los Santos. It happens on the server side of things, so there’s nothing to download.

As Rockstar continues to build towards GTA Online’s big winter update, the game should receive a handful of other updates in the meantime. Though, it remains to be seen if they’ll be issuing any punishments for players who abused the now-patched duplication glitch.
