Grand Theft Auto Online players are already nervous about a datamined vehicle

Like this, but airborne.

It might seem a bit odd that Grand Theft Auto Online’s playerbase is up in arms about the Oppressor Mk. II because the jet bike is not actually in the game at the moment. It’s been datamined, but you cannot actually jump onto the bike right now. But that doesn’t change people being nervous, and for somewhat good cause; the description alone reads like an insanely overpowered toy, after all. It’s a flying jet bike with high agility and missiles, and it can also jam incoming missiles so that it’s hard to shoot down.

This would be unbalanced enough if you were playing on your own, but people are chiefly worried about the impact it might have in multiplayer lobbies, where it’d be almost impossible to stop and definitely not fun to play against. There’s no word on when or if it’s actually going to be released, of course, but some of the player anxiety is partly a matter of getting out ahead and hopefully causing the developers to tone down the vehicle ahead of a wider release.

The Oppressor in the hands of an experienced player can dominate an online lobby with no way to stop it. This vehicle alone has altered the landscape on how missions are typically performed. Now they want to introduce a new and improved version of this already overpowered vehicle? Before you say, ” I have no problems discouraging attacks. It must be you.” or “Just create a new lobby.” As a solo or duo player, this isn’t and shouldn’t be a meta part of the gameplay. It’s outright Rockstar providing cheats to those who can afford it and want to troll.

unless they radically alter how it handles compared to it’s predecessor then it’s on par with high end vehicles that have been in the game nearly since it launched if not outright since then.

it’s also highly vulnrable to all manner of cheap firepower at the players’ disposal as well.
