GTA Online: How to Buy, Use and Customize the Oppressor MK 2 Flying Motorcycle

We've got everything you need to know about GTA Online's best bike.

The Oppressor MK 2 is so much fun in GTA Online that it's practically a mandatory purchase - a rocket-powered motorbike that allows you to fly effortlessly across Los Santos, equipped with various deadly weapons to harry those poor fools who find themselves stuck at ground level. We'll go over how to get it, and how you can customize it to make it your own.

How to Get the Oppressor MK 2

The Oppressor can be bought online from the Warstock Cache and Carry site on your phone. There's no requirements to buy it except for money, and lots of it: the default price is $3,890,250. It's an expensive purchase, but for one of the most enjoyable vehicles in the game, it seems worth it.

How to Buy the Oppressor MK 2 Cheap

It's possible to get a significant discount on the Oppressor by unlocking its "Trade Price," which lowers the cost down to $2,925,000. Still expensive, but a massive discount nonetheless.

How to Unlock the Trade Price for the Oppressor MK 2

The trade price requires you to buy a Terrorbyte (check out our guide on how to get one), and to use its mission hub in the Nerve Center to do five client missions. Once you do that, you'll be able to buy the Oppressor MK 2 at a discount.

What's the Difference Between the Oppressor MK 1 and the Oppressor MK 2?

The MK 1 is much more similar to a standard motorbike, but with a set of retractable wings that allow it to glide whenever it's in the air, such as when you drive it off a ramp. The MK 2, on the other hand, is basically a steerable rocket with a seat on top, flying rather than gliding, able to rise or fall to any altitude at the rider's whim. Admittedly, the MK 1 is a bit cheaper, but not by much, and the difference is enough to justify paying that little bit extra.

How to Fly the Oppressor MK 2

The Oppressor is relatively easy to learn how to use, though controlling it is a peculiar mix of motorbike and airplane that may take a little getting used to. Once you're on it, hold Right Trigger/R2 to fly forward in the direction the bike is facing, using the analog sticks to direct yourself and Left Trigger/L2 to brake. If you let go of all the buttons in mid-air, don't worry - rather than fall, the Oppressor simply hovers wherever it stopped. You can lower it by flying downwards, or by holding down the Right Bumper/R1 button to descend straight down through the air.

Left Bumper/L1 is used to fire twin machine guns attached to the front (or whatever weapons you've added). Keep in mind that these guns don't lock onto targets or move - they're fixed and can only fire straight ahead. This makes it very difficult to aim precisely, especially in the air.

Finally, the Oppressor also has a small booster rocket, triggered by A/X, which grants a small, temporary burst of speed. This takes time to recharge, and cannot do so while the accelerator is being pressed.

How to Customize the Oppressor MK 2

Altering the Oppressor MK 2 in any way at all requires you to have the aforementioned Terrorbyte and the Specialized Workshop modification set up inside, the combined cost of which is $1,870,000.

However, once you have them both, fly the Oppressor towards the door on the Terrorbyte's right side, where there should be a glowing blue indicator. Press Right on the D-Pad to move the Oppressor inside the Terrorbyte. Then get onto the seat and press Right again to bring up the customization menu. When you want to take it out for a spin, simply try to fly it - it'll instantly teleport you and the bike outside, ready to go.
