GTA Online players have found a surprising vehicle that can stop you from dying against opponents with the Oppressor MKII hoverbike and its lethal homing rockets.

The Pegassi Oppressor MK2 was introduced to GTA Online during the After Hours content update in 2018 and is known for its ability to hover above the ground and fly.

Since its release the Mark II has become a popular vehicle for completing business missions due to its impressive damage output and maneuverability, allowing players to travel where they want with little effort.

With its frontal machine guns and missile launchers, it can also be a nightmare to come up against in GTA Online, however, fans have found one vehicle that can surprisingly act as a counter to the deadly hoverbike.

Reddit user Palkonium shared that the MOC Cab or ‘Mobile Operations Center’ is actually a lot more fortified than players would believe and revealed that it could tank around 70 homing missiles before being destroyed.

As this type of Oppressor only comes equipped with 20 low-powered tracking rockets, this means that it would require four separate MK2’s at once to cause players with a MOC Cab some problems.

Along with its incredible tanky statistics, the truck can surprisingly reach some impressive speeds, for its class, on the Los Santos streets making it a good choice out of the heavier vehicles.

Similarly to the Yellow dump truck, the MOC Cab can traverse through some pretty deep waters such as the Vespucci Canals, requiring it to be almost completely underwater before it gets hydro locked.

Starting at just over $1.2 million, with the custom Phantom Cab in the Warstock Cache & Carry shop, the vehicle will likely become one of the go-to picks for players struggling to survive against the Oppressors MK2’s.

The MOC Cab also has some practical use such as the command center and easy access to Mobile Operations missions, making it quite a well-rounded vehicle that could be worth picking up in GTA Online.

GTA 6 teaser speculation grows after players uncover more strange files in RDR2

Fans have spotted more out-of-place files in Red Dead Redemption 2 that could point toward either GTA 6 or rumors that the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series is on a new engine.

Rockstar has been mum on any information regarding the long-awaited announcement of GTA 6, but fans can hardly contain their excitement, combing through files of other games to find some clue for what the company is working on.

Now, with GTA Online players spotting code potentially referencing the RAGE Engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2, fans think there could be some connection between RDR2 and the next Grand Theft Auto.

As such, players have peeked through RDR2’s files and discovered some things that seem wildly out of place, even for the wild west.

What are these weird GTA-like files doing in Red Dead Redemption 2?

GTA Forums member ‘rollschuh2282’ noted that they found parachute-related files hidden in Red Dead. The crazy part is that the file doesn’t exist in GTA V.

“Funnily that [[email protected]@pack] animation file does not exist in V,” they wrote and provided a photo of all the parachute animations in GTA 5.

Lo and behold, the file with “pack” in its name was not among them, meaning it was unique to Red Dead 2’s code. But what would parachute files be doing in a game about cowboys?

Modern gun files don’t make sense in RDR2. Unless…

Fans believe this is either a sign towards the next-gen port of GTA V being in Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine or GTA 6.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear if the files had existed since the game’s PC release or were only recently added in a newer update.

This isn’t the first time fans have discovered weird files in RDR2. As Dexerto previously reported, weapon code for two variants of the Browning pistol, an L1A1 rifle and AK-47 were found back in late December.

In any case, more and more evidence is mounting that something is brewing at Rockstar and it isn’t just hot coffee. Only time will tell what the future holds, especially as GTA V’s re-release draws nearer.
