Rockstar Games have rolled out a background update and hotfix to address the invisible MK II Oppressor glitch in GTA Online. 

While the majority of GTA Online players all about earning money legitimately and playing through missions, races, or heists, there are plenty who have a few dastardly tricks up their sleeves – be it through an exploit, glitch or flat out hack.

More often than not, a lobby will have a God Mode cheater in and you can find some who rain fake money down from the skies but more recently, the most annoying glitch revolved around the MK II Oppressor hoverbike.

Players uncovered a glitch whereby they could mess with the Rockstar Creator menus and then make themselves invisible in lobbies – meaning they could fly around and blow someone up without ever being seen.

When it was first found, it had all the makings of a pretty annoying glitch if it became widespread but Rockstar have moved to get rid of the problem before it drives players away from GTA Online.

Rockstar insider TezFun noted, that on September 24, the devs had rolled out a hotfix to get things straightened out. 

Instead of everyone downloading a big patch, though, TezFun added that the hotfix came in the background. Meaning that nothing needed to be downloaded and then once you drop into GTA Online again, the glitch can no longer be replicated – at least following along with the original steps.

Of course, as time goes on, players will more than likely find another way to make their hoverbikes invisible and spark chaos across Los Santos.

For now, though, you can drop into Grand Theft Auto Online without the fear of having to run away from a MK II Oppressor that you can’t see. Though, you probably will still have to run away from one that you can see. They’re still pretty annoying.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
