GTA Online player discovers perfect Oppressor MK2 counter

Grand Theft Auto V players flying high in the sky on the destructive Oppressor MK2 bikes might think they’re safe, but one GTA Online player has found a perfect counter for them. 

Using God mode and other glitches, as we’ve seen in the past, to destroy the powerful vehicle is all well and good, but not everybody can actually pull that off. Other tactics include upgraded ammo types, too.

However, a tactic that requires players to buy two very simple things in-game might be the best we’ve seen yet, and could be reasonable purchases for those cashing in on Rockstar’s limited time $1 million challenge.

Sticky Bombs are one of the things that are most effective against MK2 Oppressors.

If you have got some cash to spare, Reddit user blazingfastpulse has shown members of the community exactly what to purchase.

The Oppressor MK2 has the incredibly devastating ability of setting off homing launcher missiles, which can easily wipe out a majority of vehicles – and drivers that find themselves on the receiving end of an attack. That said, as the clip shows below, all you really need is a few sticky grenades and a fully upgraded Nightshark to fend them off.

Now that you know what works, you may be wondering about how much this solution actually costs. After all, nobody wants to be taken out from the skies every time they spawn in public lobbies.

The HVY Nightshark itself is an expensive acquisition. Bought from Warstock Cache & Carry, it sells for $1,245,000 and needs to be fully upgraded with armor improvements to fend off missiles.

When fully upgraded, it can withstand an impressive 27 strikes, which should give you enough time to get up close and personal with the enemy.

Nightsharks might look like a seriously expensive purchase at first, but it’s well worth trying.

Once you have added that level of protection, the cost of Sticky Bombs isn’t very expensive at all. In fact, they are available for $400 each, which is a mere drop in the ocean for those who have been claiming the $1,000,000 rewards of late.

So, there you have it. If you have got the money to spend and would like to stop getting blasted by these annoying bikes in-game, you know what to do.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

Owning a bunker will unlock GTA Online’s Gunrunning business options.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players. 

[Bug/glitch] R* please fix this, this is getting really annoying. I am unable to resupply my bunker by stealing supplies and before this was recorded someone was having the same problem from GTAV

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
