Oppressor hate and ridicule thread

Recommended Posts

Arrows to Athens
Posted (edited)

I'm just tired of always seeing it in missions. Missions become boring when everyone else gets on their hovering broomstick and gets to the objective within a zeptosecond and go haywire. 

 

I might as well not even play and let them do all the work. 

 

Ridiculous.

Would play the game far more had this damn thing wasn't a thing. Can't sell in regular lobbies because of troll-y nolifers abusing it to death forcing me to use the MTU method, and as such it takes me forever to enter an online lobby, and when I do I get booted off because F*ckstar can't make proper servers. Haven't played the game in ages because of it.

This is just how strong the Revolter is. (watch until the end)

 

 

I destroyed the guy's MK2 by simply driving into it. It didn't explode, but it was enough to completely decimate its engine.

Still hate it. Find the "it's good for grinding" defence of the vehicle a bit lame as well. Any grinder worth his salt should be just fine with a Buzzard.

I love to fly the buzzard. You know what i dislikes? Grinding. Hate it. The mark to atleast makes it bearable. Otherwhise. I most only use the mk 2 for that or against other mk2s. Because they have no skill to fight someone and relie on this sh*tting thing, after i killed them a few times. Even i owns one. I wished, rockstat would  change the rockets to the buzzard ones. These perfect Rockets are annoying.

Meh, the MKII was only good for grinding when the speed glitch was around. Now it's too slow.

the vids on this thread are awesome!    

 

i'm a fan of the stupid jetbike though.    useful tool.    just saying.

 

it's definitely made me a worse driver in-game, though.    seems like i f*cking crash into everything now.

The Oppressor is a good transportation vehicle and also a nasty grief tool. How you handle it is up to you.

So, thanks to @Arrows to Athens, I remembered this fun clip from long ago:

I'm pretty bad at puns.

 

 

You see, my Hunter vs an Oppressor was one of my favorite aerial matchups back in the day, even with the Oppresor's missiles (which have Homing Launcher tier accuracy) you could evade them just right if you angled correctly.

 

The Oppresor Mk II though? No chance in hell, my Hunter remains untouched from long ago and it's such a shame.

 

Can't they nerf this f*cking thing already? It's a goddamn plague.

Even the old broomstick missiles had no business being as accurate as they were/are. I see no reason a meme vehicle deserves missiles any better - not even a tiny bit - compared to an attack aircraft.

 

If anything, given that they can be spawned right near you, their missiles should be worse than aircraft. Not better.

 

That said, the old broom missiles were a lot more fair than the current BS. Plus the Hunter's chaff was a thousand times more effective, since the broom boy had to make passes at you, rather than just hover in place waiting for it to run out.

Pretty inactive here. Just wanted to say that the broomstick is still sh*t. Over and out.

Ran over a MKII with a Sasquatch today. Felt pretty good to watch it explode under my wheels :devil:. Also destroying these things should give you $10k and good sport points.

For every MK2 we destroy, a single brain cell should be added to Rockstar devs' heads.

I saw this idea on reddit and i got very interested on it. Imagine a EMP gun that acts like a homing launcher, it locks into a target and disables the vehicle completely for about 4-5 seconds like the emp mine. This would be the perfect counter to the opressor since you can go out, disable the thing, snipe the driver and move on with your life. And for other ground vehicles i cant see it being a big of an issue

What the ACTUAL f*ck!!?? Rockstar, you were my go to game company. Great story, fun gameplay, grindy-but-worth-it rewards and progress. In a toxic game market where pay to win and micro transactions are king, Rockstar was my last best hope. I played RDR Online and loved it so why not try GTA too?

   

   I have never been able to make any money to set up my businesses. I have no jets, no copters, no armored vehicles, no nightclub, I have one apartment that I can take refuge in and the MC Club. That’s it. How am I supposed to compete? I can’t run product through oppressor infested maps. I can’t win a shootout. I can’t outdrive these million dollar vehicles. It’s effectively a paywall that keeps me from progressing in the game at all. I am not made of money so I can’t even buy shark cards to even the playing field. 

 

Instead of shark cards, why not give us the ability to buy cosmetic content from a catalogue like RDR2? Different livery and graffiti paint jobs, additions to your house/apartment, new car customizations like neon light patterns and hydraulic bounce styles, etc. This game could have a thriving economy with a fun a good community, but instead Rockstar chooses to reinforce the bullsh*t that drives away a big fan base leaving us with the toxic wannabes and sh*t players who don’t even need skill to kill you. 

 

Goodbye GTA. I’m going back to PUBG.

It really is kind of sad that they turned what is already a pretty transformative vehicle into a ridiculously powered weapon. The MKII really changed the dynamic of the map by letting you land almost anywhere very quickly; that alone is a huge advantage. You can throw some proxy mines on a road and zip over to a water tower or mountain and set up as a sniper for a perfect ambush. You can hang out on ledges and get into crevices that were nearly impossible to get on before with ease. 

 

Matter of fact, if GTA 6 is set in New York or Chicago or anywhere with high vertical terrain, I'd love for this bike to make a comeback (or for them to put in better jetpacks), just without the stupid homing missiles. It doesn't need them to already be a very good upgrade.

I was in a solo lobby when someone drops in.  Just me and him.  Calls up his broomstick and comes straight for me.  Seriously, you have NOTHING ELSE to do in the game?  You cannot think of ANYTHING to do when the only other player in the lobby is peaceful and minding their own business?  So I waited for him to traverse the map and at the last instant I did the Nat test and dropped out of the lobby.  All I could do was waste as much of his time as possible.

This thing is so child-friendly.

 

Surely it's illegal to try market to/target children with an 18 rated game?

You jest but I can see it happening. Deluxo with Countermeasures and a Starling style rocket booster. That or the Thruster MkII.

Honestly - at least those wouldn't be classified as bikes, so would take a little longer to spam. They shortened the vehicle cooldown to just two minutes, but it's something at least.

True. Removing the MkII from the MC Menu and making it a Special Vehicle would solve alot of issues.

How about a Mech Suit with AA Flak Cannon arms?

I mean I'm not that keen on it, but anything's better than those ultra-accurate homing missiles. Flak Cannon has to be aimed at least.
