There aren’t many more annoying things in GTA Online than being chased down by someone on an MKII Oppressor. So, we’ve rounded up a few tips that could help save you from fuming with rage.

The majority of vehicles in GTA Online are pretty standard as you’ve got the cars, motorbikes, planes, and helicopters that you’d find in GTA V’s story mode. However, Rockstar Games have introduced some wacky creations.

You’ve got the DeLorean-like Deluxo which can fly through the air, the Phantom Wedge with its huge nose that can bulldoze anything out of its way, and even the Scramjet. Yet, there is nothing quite like the MKII Oppressor. The flying motorbike is equipped with rockets and can really ruin your day.

The Oppressor is the most annoying vehicle to fight in GTA Online.

With players have been racking up more cash and finding themselves being able to afford the $3.8 million bike, they are a terribly frequent sight in Los Santos. Though, there are a few ways to counter them.

Reddit user Hunterdog21 rounded up a few helpful tips, noting that if you’re on the ground, you can pluck the Oppressor users out of the sky. You just need either a Heavy Revolver MKII with hollow-point rounds or a Bullpup rifle with armor-piercing rounds.

Other Redditor’s noted that if you’ve got the cash to fight back, you can buy yourself a Nightshark and an Anti-Aircraft Trailer to really pack a punch.

Though, if you want to turn the tide on the players using the MKII Oppressor without needing to fire a bullet, then there is a vehicle you need.

The cab for the Mobile Operations Centre can withstand a barrage of the rockets, annoying the players that think they’ve got your dead to rights. You can simply let them waste their ammo and then go about with your day.

Now, obviously, there are other ways to go about fighting the MKII Oppressor players, but considering that they can fire rockets and zoom away at high speed, you probably don’t want to mess around with them.

You might be able to pull off a lucky sniper shot but we’d recommend sticking to the upgraded ammo types and assault rifles.


GTA Online player makes strange car discovery at Diamond Casino

Grand Theft Auto Online players have made a startling discovery at the back of the Diamond Casino which is, somewhat, unexplainable. 

Given that it’s a living, virtual city, Los Santos can throw up plenty of surprises – both intended and unintended – with the NPCs, their vehicles, and the different buildings dotted around the place. 

Some of Los Santos’ residents will just run out into the road, attack you for looking at them for longer than a few seconds, or start running wildly if you happen to see them conducting a shady deal down a dark alleyway. 

However, in the case of the Diamond Casino’s racing track, some players have discovered something completely different, as the game has allowed some select residents to start driving around in circles.

Almost 7 years after it was first released, players are still finding new ways to do things in GTA Online.

Typically, when it comes to the Casino’s dirt racing track, it’s empty and looking like it needs a few horses to be racing around it.

Yet, as Reddit user FS1120 pointed out, some of the NPCs might just start driving around it as they wish. Why? Well, the Redditor didn’t really have an explanation. Just that, as they were doing a Sightseer mission, they noticed it – and it was such a shock, given they’ve never seen it before. 

Other players were also taken back by the discovery, given how completely random it is. However, one fan might have cracked the code.

Reddit user Appletree_Music asked: “Wonder if the mission enabled that area for traffic because it’s going two ways at traffic speeds? Definitely a first.”

Other players noted that it isn’t just limited to the Casino, either. Redditor adwyv pointed out that they’d also seen traffic driving around the Pier in a similar fashion. 

Either way, the next time you drop into Los Santos, keep an eye out for random traffic. It could lead to a hilarious moment of discovery.
