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…

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
