The Oppressor Mk II vehicle is one of the most controversial aspects of GTA Online, as enemies will often use it to repeatedly kill you or destroy your vehicles. Players end up entering “Passive mode” just to avoid them.

Now, the summer update will counter this problem by bringing a major nerf to the effectiveness of homing missiles and countermeasures for the flying vehicle. This will make them easier to take down than before.
