Oppressor hate and ridicule thread

Recommended Posts

The Gator

The problem in not the opressor

The problem are gta players

As always

This. Many GTA players truly live up to the quote of "this is why we can't have nice things". I think it goes for majority of the weaponized hardware that could be used for PvE or even PvP when it's agreed upon by both parties; instead people abuse these vehicles/aircraft to f*ck up the experience/grind for others.

 

And I say all this being a huge fan of the Oppressor, as it's great fun for bounty hunting, getting around the map and sourcing I/E vehicles, but when people use it just to be assholes it ruins it for everyone.

the oppressor is the result of several hundred years of inbreeding between a savage, rocket voltic, mallard and a bobber.

I bought this thing, and it's kinda cool I guess, but... eehhh... it's finicky to control, finicky to get boost and get back in the air, and just generally unimpressive. If I wanna do cool air maneuvers I'm getting a plane, the oppressor is... ehh, but I'm gonna keep it since it will be the MC version of my CEO buzzard, good for getting out of a tight spot! (If I can stay on it....)

I don't find it finnicky at all. It's an impressive tool. Tons of fun. But, it's the weapons on it that make me hate it. It becomes a griefing tool for others.

 

It would be great if it was only a fun vehicle to boost and fly around with. Why did they have to make it a Ruiner type vehicle, only cheaper and better? Ugh

All they had to do was give it dumbfire missiles that are weak, tbh. Like, those tiny things are just as powerful as my savage's missiles? Wtf?

Just remove its weaponry, ability to be called by mc and lower insurance and it will be ok. Atm this the most op vehicle in the game. Its cancer.

...and give it to the Rocket Voltic. Fixed, no need to remove all of the fun out of it.

What if the Oppressor only had 4 missiles, but you could use your own weapons on it to compensate?

 

That would make it more balanced?

 

Just my $0.02

No doubt the thing is OP, and I definitely treat every icon I see as a jet-level sign of impending trouble, but damn it all I just loving using it so much...

Couple more kills last night on this one.

Chased a dude killing randomly with his flying turd. Caught him with a Buzzard: he screwed up so bad that I chopped him with the rotor blades.

 

Funny thing is, I had to go down quick and put mines all around the downed bike so the pilot would die again and trigger himself the explosion to blow it.....which happened :D

I tried two methods I'd heard good things about, but hadn't done for myself yet. The MOC, and the Ruiner 2000. Both worked really well actually. The MOC (you can ditch the trailer) is an absolute tank when it comes to damage. Like, an actual tank, not a paper Rhino. Takes an insane amount of missiles. I would summon up my own Oppressor, park next to it in the MOC, blocking it from view - they'd send their missile, pay for the Oppressor, and the MOC wouldn't even be tickled.

 

Those Ruiner missiles turn so sharp too. I don't think there's any way an Oppressor can dodge those. It's a guaranteed hit against them.

 

If it's just the one Oppressor, I prefer not to go to the effort of ditching my current vehicle for one of these. My current vehicle would more or less stand a reasonable chance if played carefully. But when you know they're just going to call it up again and again every time they mess up, then you may as well get one of those and make their little toy useless against you.

Best way to take down an Oppressor....with an Oppressor. Fight fire with fire. Seems like only another Oppressor will take me down off my Oppressor.

Yeah its lame at best. Just another step towards making GTA:O more of a hell hole.

I got to try the MOC on this ugly thing, and it sure worked: the rear turret made dog food of it.

Will have a look about the "hide something behind".

No point about making them pay the insurance for me, there is none on PC.

 

It can be fun to knock one off his ride with a Rhino canon swing.... Might take a while to set up tho.

Next week special, it's on my schedule now :D

Came across a lobby yesterday where an Oppressor was just zipping around the map, blowing up shipments and killing players relentlessly. They were savvy enough to stay away from on foot players, so there's literally nothing you can do to get them (besides getting an Oppressor of your own). They're too nippy and unpredictable to take down with a sniper and too fast to catch.

Various aircraft can kill them, they have zero chance against a Ruiner VIP. Like totally Zero.

This is all you have to say when people ask why you’re never actually playing gta online with any players in your lobby. Best thing is to knock the guy off then just repeatedly run him over in my opinion before making a witty remark and exiting the lobby.

Lots of things 'can' kill them, but not reliably. It seems to me the Oppressor always has a huge advantage. I don't own a Ruiner 2000 so I'll take your word for that. It still doesn't help when an Oppressor is coming after your deliveries.

Now you understand why blowing up any PVs and being penalized for it is bullsh*t.

I was minding my own business, coming out of the eastern most LSC, and suddenly this Oppressor comes flying into the side of the building. The pilot died. So while he respawned, I parked my Kuruma on top of his bike.

He came back and kept trying to shoot me, when that didn't work he tried a sticky. I moved. He blew up his own Oppressor. I run him down and head for my office.

He's back in no time. I keep hearing explosions but he misses every time. Then he tries to kamikazee me, but fails on that too. He crashes and falls off.

He gets back on before i can run him over. He hits the boost, and catches an overpass in the face as he tries to fly away. Back off the bike. He stands up just as I hit him full throttle and he dies again. I laugh and drive away.

 

He messages me "Eat a dick" "U suk" and my personal favorite "karuma fa**ot"

 

I send back "tell your mom she gave me and my friends the clap"

 

That was the last I heard from that rocket jockey.
