The prices change Grand Theft Auto Online, and it’s not all bad news. In fact, many vehicles will soon become cheaper. And a few pesky and powerful vehicles, like the armed jet bike aka the Oppressor Mk II, will cost a lot more, which is actually a good thing. Even better, Rockstar will be making more changes soon to rebalance other powerful aircraft like the Jetbike.
GTA Online is almost a decade old. In the world of video games, that’s basically ancient. However, this popular crime simulator continues to receive updates big and small from Rockstar Games, as millions of players around the world log in every day to have fun in its open world full of side activities, missions and criminal opportunities. Well, they’re trying to have fun until a troll inevitably swoops in and ruins everything. But Rockstar seems determined to make sucking on everyone’s treats at least a little harder and more expensive.
All vehicles inside GTA Online get price changes
On April 13th Rockstar has published a new blog post on its official website. The lengthy post included news about an upcoming license plate maker, upcoming events, a new car, and more. But at the very end, the studio spoke about changes it made to vehicle prices to “better reflect their value to players.” These changes will go live on April 27th.
Here are all the vehicles that will be cheaper to buy now:
- Brute Armored Boxville:
- HVY Chernobog:
- Impressive Ruiner 2000:
- Mammoth Thruster:
- Mammoth Tula:
- Ocelot Stromberg:
- Pegassi Suppressors:
- RM-10 Bombushka:
And here are all the vehicles that will cost more later this month:
- Pegassi Suppressor Mk II:
- Declasse Granger 3600LX:
- Declasse Scramjet:
- Dewbauchee Champion:
- Impress deluxe:
- Pegassi Toreador:
- Armed Pegassi Ignus:
- Buckingham Akula:
According to Rockstar, the reason some vehicles are priced up is because they’re just too useful, too powerful, or too fast, and as such the company seems to think they should be worth more and harder to get. While you might think fans would be upset about price hikes, many are happy to see certain armored vehicles – like the flying Deluxo and the infamously annoying one MK II Oppressor jet bike– Receive price increases. The Jetbike in particular will more than double its price to a staggering 8 million, making it one of the most expensive vehicles in the entire game.
GTA OnlineThe infamously annoying jet bike from could get more nerfs
This is just the latest chapter in the GTA Online jet bike saga. Even before it was added to the game, people were concerned about how this would affect the popular online crime simulation. And once it was added, it quickly became a problem. Rockstar has optimized it and other parts of GTA Online in an effort to keep it under control.
Then last year Rockstar attempted to nerf the bike again by making its missiles less accurate and increasing the cooldown of its countermeasures. In theory, this should have made it harder to use the bike as an instrument of trolling destruction. However, players are still skilled enough to wreak havoc. And this new price tag could at least make it harder for so many people to grab one of these powerful vehicles and blow up Los Santos.
But Rockstar isn’t done yet GTA Online‘s mighty flying vehicles. It ended its latest blog post by saying that based on player feedback it is evaluating “potential future adjustments” to the game, including “realigning certain aircraft to protect spectators in Freemode”. It sounds a lot like Rockstar is going to nerf a bunch of different flying death machines – and soon. This is good news for people who just want to chill and have fun and don’t have to be constantly on the lookout for 16-year-old assholes bombarding you from above while yelling at people below.
