A GTA Online player has found a solid way to take on opponents using Oppressor MK2 hoverbikes and their lethal homing rockets.

The Pegassi Oppressor MK2 is a custom hoverbike that was introduced to GTA Online as part of the After Hours update back in 2018, and it quickly became a favorite among players thanks to its ability to hover above the ground and fly.

It’s also notoriously difficult to go up against, as it features frontal machine guns and homing missile launchers that give it an impressive damage output. Pair this with a high level of maneuverability, and it can be a nightmare to take down.

MK2 Oppressors have been annoying GTA Online players since 2018

But one player on Reddit has shared the perfect way to defeat the MK2, and it involves a little help from the Avenger plane.

The Avenger is a great MK2 counter

The Mammoth Avenger is a weaponized plane that was added to GTA Online as part of The Doomsday Heist update in 2017. It can be purchased from Warstock Cache & Carry for $3,450,000.

A video shared by Reddit user KB0MB3R shows how the Avenger can withstand multiple homing missile strikes from the MK2 without exploding, and was able to destroy the MK2 by dropping a bomb on it.

Some in the comments were “surprised” that the Avenger was able to take the hits, but one player chimed in to say that, in their own experience, the Avenger could take at least 20 homing missiles from the MK2.

Unfortunately, KB0MB3R got a ‘lost connection’ alert right after the encounter. But as one commenter pointed out, it might not have been a bad thing, as their Avenger looked like it was about to crash land.

“Look for the bright side. The game boot you off before you crash[ed],” they joked.

This isn’t the first time a GTA Online player has found a solid vehicle to take on the MK2 Oppressor.

It was recently discovered that the MOC Cab – or ‘Mobile Operations Center’ – is actually a lot more fortified than players would believe, and can tank around 70 homing missiles before being destroyed.

New patent potentially confirms GTA 6 Online gameplay details

A new patent submitted by Take-Two Interactive for Rockstar Games has pointed towards GTA 6’s Online mode being a major expansion on what we’ve got now in GTA Online. 

The biggest question in gaming is, undoubtedly, when will Rockstar Games finally release GTA 6? It’s a question that nobody, not even the best Rockstar insider, really has an answer for.

There has been a whole laundry list of leaks – some about where the game will be set, who will be the main characters, and some even claiming when the game will be revealed. However, nothing has been confirmed by Rockstar Games. They’re staying tight-lipped on everything.

While fans have been digging inside GTA V and GTA Online, looking for possible teasers, others have been looking elsewhere – including the patent and trademark filings that Take-Two, the publishers for Rockstar, have been making.

GTA Vice City as GTA 6

An incredible amount of ‘leaks’ have surfaced about GTA 6, with a return to Vice City being the most popular.

The most recent of which, that players were able to uncover, seemingly refers to GTA 6’s online mode, given that there’s mention of dedicated servers rather than solely peer-to-peer connections.

Not just that, but, the patent also indicates that these would also be used for AI’s and NPCs in the world. Theoretically, that might mean that we could see a more densely populated world – more traffic on the road and NPC’s walking around, for example.

Additionally, last year, a patent was uncovered for Rockstar working on additional session merging tech. That could mean that GTA 6 Online could have massive lobbies – say in the 100s rather than just the current limits.

As Twitter user chi_colossimo, who broke down the patent, pointed out there is also mention of a mechanism to avoid car duplication glitches via session merging. 

Car duplication glitches have been a big thing in GTA Online over the years, so Rockstar could be using that technology in the current-gen. 

Though, it seems likely that if it’s successful, it would carry over into what GTA 6 Online has in store.
