Rockstar Games just nerfed the most hated GTA Online vehicle - again

Rockstar Games will troll fans for the heck of it and that's part of what makes the developers so beloved within the gaming community.

If this doesn't put a damper on the constant abuse of the Oppressor Mk-2 Flying Bike, we don't know what will.

Case in point, the new price of the most hated GTA Online vehicle.

There's no love lost between the GTA Online community and the Oppressor MK-2. With its GTA$ 3.8 million sticker price at launch, fans hated the obnoxiously luxurious vehicle. But, as if it was also in on the meme, Rockstar decided to double the price of the Oppressor MK-2, as part of the latest GTA Online update.


This isn't all the good news as a lot of vehicles are getting a price cut going forward, specifically, the following:

  • Brute Armored Boxville: GTA$1,300,000 (from GTA$2,926,000)
  • HVY Chernobog: GTA $1,500,000 (from GTA$3,311,700)
  • Imponte Ruiner 2000: GTA$3,750,000 (from GTA$575,600)
  • Mammoth Thruster: GTA$2,500,000 (from GTA$3,657,500)
  • Mammoth Tula: GTA$4,100,000 (from GTA$5,173,700)
  • Ocelot Stromberg: GTA$3,185,350 (from GTA$2,500,000)
  • Pegassi Oppressor: GTA$2,750,000 (from GTA$3,524,500)
  • RM-10 Bombushka GTA$4,750,000 (from GTA$5,918,500)

Unfortunately, while these vehicles will get cheaper, a handful will be a lot more expensive as well, aside from the Pegassi Oppressor Mk II, like:

  • Declasse Granger 3600LX: GTA$2,000,000 (from GTA$1,380,000)
  • Declasse Scramjet: GTA$4,000,000 (from GTA$3,480,000)
  • Dewbauchee Champion: GTA$3,750,000 (from $2,995,000)
  • Imponte Deluxo: GTA$5,750,000 (GTA$4,721,500)
  • Pegassi Toreador: GTA$4,250,000 (from GTA$3,660,000)
  • Pegassi Weaponized Ignus: GTA$4,500,000 (from GTA$3,245,000)
  • Buckingham Akula: GTA$4,500,000 (from GTA$3,704,050)

According to Rockstar Games, it's currently "evaluating potential future adjustments", so expect vehicle prices (and features for the Pegassi Oppressor Mk II) to change going forward.

Usually, price adjustments get a collective groan from the GTA community, either because it's a trivial thing or it's insignificant. This time around, there's very little discontent and far more cheers.

Most likely, this is because of how divisive the jet bike saga has been since its launch. By doubling its price, in addition to making several tweaks, Rockstar hopes to keep its abuse under control.

The griefing potential of the infamous jet bike in GTA Online knows no bounds but making it a bit more expensive will make it less achievable.

Before the massive price increase and even after making the missiles harder to use with a longer cooldown, the jet bike was the ultimate tool of destruction in GTA Online. At the very least, doubling the price of the jet bike will make it harder to achieve or, at the very least, less enticing for the rich trolls of Los Santos.

Those with millions to spare could still use it to start blowing up Los Santos, but Rockstar is probably betting on people wanting to spend their nefariously-earned dirty money elsewhere.
