According to the Rockstar Newswire, the Mk II Oppressor, one of the most overpowered vehicles in the game; and a cargo griefer’s wet dream, is getting nerfed.

We’re talking about a reduction in the effectiveness of the homing missiles, and a longer cooldown on countermeasures.

Know any neat mods we could use to do a bit more exploration in San Andreas? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

we’re taking a super quick look at the adjustments to the mark to oppressor in the new gta 5 online
summer 2022 dlc update to the criminal enterprises
hi and welcome back my name’s dan and i’m an old grumpy gamer well this summer 2022 dlc has arrived
and i’m here for it rockstar have added a bunch of new stuff to grand theft auto online largely based
on community feedback and it really is a welcome change join me then as we take a super quick look
into the adjustments to the mark ii oppressor in gta 5 online before we dive in if you’re new to
the channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to
stay up to date according to the rockstar newswire the mark ii oppressor one of the most overpowered
vehicles in the game and a cargo griefer’s wet dream is getting nerfed we’re talking about a
reduction in the effectiveness of homing missiles and a longer cooldown on countermeasures so
we thought we might test this out let’s start with a control sample looking at this footage
taken before the dlc released we’ve got an oppressor against the sparrow we can see the
oppressor locks on pretty quickly and even with the sparrow attempting to evade it’s
more or less a guaranteed game over for the pilot of the sparrow same goes for a land based vehicle
too as soon as that targeting locks on the driver is more or less done for looking at the so-called
nerfed mark ii we can see a bit of a difference but not so much there’s a major change in gameplay
i’m certainly no pc pilot crew pilot but i’m not bad at dealing with tryhards and it’s still a bit
of an effort to get clear of those missiles with the new countermeasures available to the sparrow
though we’re actually in with a fighting chance don’t get me wrong you’ll still need to be on
the ball but it’s no longer a done deal next up let’s check out these counter measures so
we can see here the oppressor could just dump flare after flare without issue and
looking at how they work with the sparrow they’re pretty effective at range too we can really only
hit an oppressor if the rider isn’t paying attention or makes a pretty solid mistake
same goes for the shoulder mounted homing missiles we can even see how hard the missiles
veer off when the cannon measures are fired after the update there’s a definite slowdown
in the firing of countermeasures it’s hard to say precisely how long but there’s a clear difference
is it a game changer yeah maybe time will tell on this one but i’ll take any improvement that’s
it offered to the mark ii because as a grinder i really struggled with this stuff so what are
your thoughts is this a big difference will this change your experience in game or is it kind of
moot with the new ability to complete sell missions in invite only lobbies we’re
super keen to hear your opinions on this one so please comment down below or hit us up on
twitter in the meantime thanks for watching check out the video up the top for another
dlc quick guide or the one down the bottom for some more old grumpy game of goodness stay safe
wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
