I don't own a Ruiner 2000 so I'll take your word for that.

I can vouch for the Ruiner 2000 being effective. Obviously if they're smart they'll get away when they see that. Very few of them are though, and if you get a missile locked onto them and fired - I don't think I've ever seen one miss an Oppressor.

 

The Oppressor is pretty rank though, don't get me wrong. I think the worst part about it is how quickly you can spawn a new one through the MC menu. You get tryhards just endlessly getting a new instantly whenever they f*ck up.

 

Other vehicles - you don't have that. Pegasus vehicles have to be collected if you mess up, personal aircraft have a cooldown, as does the CEO Buzzard (though a little short in my opinion). Even the APC - I think that has a cooldown on calling it up again, unless I'm wrong.

I've had some success recently hunting Oppressors with the Molotok and Rogue (Starling would probably work too).

 

While not the most effective at actually killing an Oppressor outright, it's a simple thing to dive from high altitude, fire off a couple of rockets, then climb straight up and get out of range before the Oppressor can retaliate. In the occasional event where they do get a rocket off, you can simply drop a flare to make it go away. If they try to pursue you, just stay high enough to remain out of range until they are forced to drop back down.

 

Repeat as necessary until you eventually kill them, or they get mad enough to go for a jet.

I'm so happy to meet more and more flying bike hunters here :D

 

I see more of us ingame too, with people making the ugly bike "pilot" mad, and then harass him until he quits or until he goes for another vehicle.

^We need to keep coming up with more and more tricks and traps for them lol.

 

Perhaps the flare gun might somehow be of use.

 

I have also seen a thing (from both perspectives) where the Oppressor just kind of self-destructs when you try to fire a missile. If you could get them to do that on demand, that'd be good. Getting them to pay their own insurance is always a plus.

 

Edit: Some older clips of Oppressors having humiliating deaths.

Haha, real nasty idea. Love it.

 

The most efficient trap I've found so far is to talk to them, while waiting in a wide open area, they get upset real quick and since they tend to feel protected and strong they mostly rush without thinking.

Ego is a b*tch...

 

Tonight's trophy :

Had one crash his bike on a wall of the construction site in downtown LS, he was trying to spot me.

He did found me, actually. But since I was behind a wall, he just....rammed the wall.

The dude fell a few hundred meters. His bike survived, he did not.

Parachuted, putted some mines all around his crap, he ran to it, blew everything as he was running like a headless chicken... traditional hate mail and rage quit followed :)

 

I'll try to put some on fire next time, my mines and stickies are getting expensive.

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.

 

 

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.

 

I killed a lobby of 6 guys on oppressors at least 5 times each in the Ruiner VIP, I didn't even get hit. It's not even a fair match against 6. It wouldn't even be against 20 oppressors. The ruiner can avoid the missiles with a jump and you'd need to get hit 20 or 30 times to die anyway but every time you fire at the oppressors they are dead and you seem to be able to kill them before they can even lock onto you. If I was on an oppressor and saw a VIP ruiner I'd be running but these guys seem so confidant that the bike can't loose against anything they keep coming at you.

It's pretty much the case already: you have to own a bunker + MOC + vehicle bay + ugly bike + upgrade

That's about 6 millions, with trade price, lower budget options for everything, no customization, and considering you don't fast track any research and do every ressuply by hand.

It can't cost less than 6 mills.

Mommy's credit card won't like this Shark card moaning from the bedroom.

 

That's a LOT of money, for something so ugly.

The Regina looks nicer with its wooden panels, and it can be stolen and kept for free, for example.

Oh yes, i hate the opressor. It has two main problems imo.

1. The missiles: Seriously why? Why homingmissiles? Why spammable ruiner 2k missiles? The 20 missile limit is a joke. The far less agile ruiner 2k has a limit of 8.

 

It should have non-homingmissiles with the same limit that the tampa has or 4-8 regular homingmissiles.

 

2. The flying ability: Sure its the key ability but its also what makes this thing so canzerous. It should have a boostjump instead. This way it would still remain agile and useable for quicktravel without being able to buzz around like a mosquito.

Welcome to the party then!

Each time I see a mosquito I either slap it in the face or crush it under something heavy. Let's do the same in GTA :D

 

Feel free to join the hunt, and make sure mosquitos stay either in their nest or under your shoe.

^Whenever I see an opressor, i get on it and dump it into a body of water (no insurance on PC).

I know they can call it right back at their feet but it keeps me sane.

That was after using a Fully Loaded Ruiner 2000 on him. To be honest, the ordinary Ruiner 2000 is good against them too - one missile locked, and there's no way they're dodging that. But if you know someone's just going to spam the Oppressor every time they respawn, then you want something that'll make it useless, and you don't want to pay insurance either.

 

After the time was up on that I used the MOC, which will take forever for an Oppressor to destroy. Laughed at the explosive sniper hits too lol. Think it'd take at least 60, maybe more.

 

Getting the bomb underneath his feet was nice too.

It's weird ... I had a dream the other night where I chopped one up with the Savage's blades. Just an hour-ish ago I encountered one, and he got caught in my rotors while trying to attack me.

Did the same with a Buzzard, check a few posts above :)

 

Just made one drown his ugly bike twice, during PP.

I know these flying dudes don't belong to the most clever kind of guys on earth but come on.

Flying Bike.

Against someone doing Piracy Prevention, sitting on his yacht fully armed and not afk.

 

I've met weird players, with weird tactics, .... But this one? I guess next time one will attempt to capture the yacht with a Rhino.

 

2 easy kills anyway, and 2 bikes at the bottom of the ocean: not gonna complain :D

i have used a rhino and a cargobob to capture a yacht before, not that effective but funny and still a better idea than the opressor

Tonight I decided to wipe one more ugly bike from the face of Earth, while performing a lawful act: make a prick respect a "No Parking" sign.

 

So I decided to throw a couple of molotovs, hoping the rising fire will make him come out and move his stupid (and ugly) bike to a proper place.

It didn't went exactly as planned, but eventually he cleared the place.

And the lobby.

Guys, I have a question:

 

Wasn't there a cooldown for calling back a destroyed PV when you were in a MC? Did they removed it?

If you think about destroyed bikes that are stored in your clubhouse, there is no cooldown: call MMI to make it back to life and call it again with MC menu.

 

Actually I suggest ugly bike's ccoldown to be changed: instead of 0, it should be 8 hours. Or 8 days.

 

Or even better, cooldown set to infinite: if you break it, buy a new one. And get lost.

I don't feel this deserves to be hated as much as it does.

 

If you have exsplosive rounds, you basically own anything and everything in the sky, Savage, Oppressor, Hunter, you name it. You don't have to be super good either.

 

I have to agree however that weaponized vehicles and exsplosive rounds are the worst things to happen to the free roam in the game.

Not for me. I don't like flying on some imaginary bike. Its not why i bought Grand Theft Auto. If i wanted to fly that crap, i would have bought some sh*tty Saints Row game.

It's weird but it almost seems like a deliberate attempt by R* to break the game. It's every feature aligns in a perfect storm of OP bulls*t. It serves no positive function within the context of the game. All it does is enable dicks to be dicks.

 

I saw a comment on a Youtube video that said it felt more like a PC mod than something that's actually supposed to be in the game, and that's spot on.

 

It's obviously not going to be removed, so any or some of the following nerfs please:

 

• Reduce missile capacity to 4 or even 2

• Increase the time it takes for missiles to lock.

• Reduce the missile's rate of fire.

• Make the missiles weaker, so at least two hits are needed to blow up a normal vehicle.

• Make the missiles work like special ammo – you have to go the MOC to reload (no reload simply by calling in a new bike), and make them expensive, like $20000 per reload.

• Make it a Pegasus vehicle with at least say a 10 min cool down period before you can call a new one.

• Longer charge time on the booster so you can only get one boost every 30 seconds or something.

• Drastically reduce the glide time. The wings are tiny. It shouldn't be able to glide and glide.

• Make it so it can only glide in a straight line – no turning in flight.

• Don't allow it to be an MC bike.

• Owner always pays the insurance cost even when it's destroyed by another player.
