Zooming around on an Oppressor MK2 in Grand Theft Auto 5 might make you feel invincible at times, but to those wreaking havoc from the skies, this GTA Online player has the perfect way of taking you down. 

Rockstar Games have added all sorts of crazy vehicles since the game first launched back in 2013, and there’s even two versions of the Oppressor – one that stays on the ground, and another that allows players to speed off into the clouds.

The latter is potentially the most popular, and infuriating, vehicle that you will come across in public lobbies. With it being so small and quick, it can be difficult to destroy players when using it, although one messed with the wrong player after getting in the way of their cargo mission – and boy does their tactic of taking them down leave a mark.

Seeing an Oppressor MK2 flying around Los Santos isn’t always a pretty sight. Sometimes, it sparks danger.

The Oppressor MK2, introduced with the After Hours update back in 2018, is worth a whopping $3,890,250 from Warstock Cache & Carry – which, you would think, would limit the amount of people using one due to its hefty price tag.

After having their cargo destroyed in GTA Online by a player using one of the hoverbikes, Reddit user CanadianBTW made it their mission to get revenge on an enemy.

As the annoying player continued to fly around Los Santos after ruining the mini mission for the Redditor, they were soon left red-faced after unleashing their secret weapon. This was something much stronger, bigger, faster… the Avenger. If we didn’t know already, its huge propellers make it the perfect Oppressor MK2 killer.

They simply posted: “He destroyed my cargo, I turn him into ground beef.” Well, that’s a pretty accurate description of what you’re about to see, too.

In fact, with just one bump it doesn’t just completely set the flying bike off course, but wipes them out completely – a strategy that many other members of the community might want to adopt in the future when coming up against the irritating bike.

If you’re looking to grab yourself one of these monstrous Avengers, however, they’re also not the cheapest thing on the market. Actually, it’s an expensive solution to everybody’s problems, costing between $3,450,000 – $4,787,500 from Warstock Cache & Carry.

With one ready to be deployed, though, clearly you won’t be worrying for too much longer about the pesky Oppressor MK2. With a perfectly timed hit, you’ll swat them like flies.

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.
