  • Top-tier mobility
  • Its missiles are still good for PvE content after the nerf

There are very few vehicles with the ease of accessibility that this flying bike has while also having phenomenal mobility. If you want something with an extremely low-skill floor yet capable of getting you to practically any spot on the map, then this is the motorcycle for you.

It's much smaller than a plane or a helicopter, but it also has the ability to fly through the air and float for an indefinite period of time. Add in some homing missiles, and it becomes quite clear that this bike will do excellently for any PvE freemode missions.

For example, it's still great for grinding GTA Online's numerous Cayo Perico Heist preparation missions.


What was the Oppressor Mk II nerf in GTA Online?

The semi-recent nerf to the infamous flying motorcycle targeted two things:

  1. Lessened its homing missile effectiveness.
  2. Strongly nerfed the cooldowns on its two main defensive countermeasures.

Those nerfs essentially mean that this bike is much weaker for PvP combat than before, with the homing missile accuracy change even being felt when you have NPC helicopters going after you.

GTA Online players can still effectively use the Oppressor Mk II today, meaning that it can be worth purchasing if it's 50% off, thanks to Black Friday. If you only care about PvP battles, then this nerfed bike might not be for you.

Otherwise, people who focus more on PvE stuff will find its versatility to be a godsend.
