New trick to take down the MKII Oppressor in GTA Online

One GTA Online fan has discovered a creative new trick to counter irritating MKII Oppressor trolls with the help of the brand new Toreador vehicle.

There are several different tools and vehicles that you can use to cause mass mayhem when playing GTA Online. The MKII Oppressor, also known as the ‘boom stick’ by some GTA players, is a flying bike that gives players an aerial advantage.

However, they can also be a major source of annoyance as players will use them to repeatedly kill you or destroy your personal vehicles. You’ll often find yourself entering “Passive mode” just to get them off your back.

Luckily, one GTA Online player has discovered a neat little trick that you can use to counter trolls who attack you above, and it involves attacking your opponent with the Toreador.

The MK2 Oppressor in GTA Online

Many GTA Online players have come up with different strategies for countering Oppressor MK2 attacks. These methods include using the Mobile Operations Centre truck cab and Nightshark to catch their missiles.

Other strategies have you use a more offensive approach and one player has found a new way to do just that. Reddit user NinjaDragon177 was using their Toreador in a battle against an Oppressor troll and found themselves trapped.

The Redditor waited until their enemy stopped firing missiles before retaliating. They drove off a pile of dirt and flipped upside down before firing their own missiles to take out the Oppressor. The player then landed on the ground in a satisfying way.

This highlight gained a lot of popularity, with many of the commenters praising the Redditor for this creative kill. One of them even called the player an “Ex-Rocket leaguer.”

The MK2 has been a major source of annoyance for GTA Online players, since trolls ruin the game for others, and one commenter even suggested that Rockstar Games should add the option to remove them from a session altogether.

You can also recreate this maneuver if you own a Toreador, but purchasing one will set you back about $3,660,000. It’s not the cheapest option, but the trick does look cool so it’s definitely worth the investment.

Apex Legends buffs and nerfs

With Apex Legends Season 9 set to go live on May 4, we will go over all the buffs and nerfs that Respawn Entertainment have confirmed are in development for the next major update.

Respawn Entertainment introduced quite a few changes in the Apex Legends Chaos Theory update. Many Legends received different buffs and nerfs to help balance them, and they plan to bring more of these in the near future.

The devs apply buffs and nerfs to certain Legends so that the battle royale still feels fresh after a new update drops. They also let the fans know what they’re currently working through community updates, and here’s what they’ve confirmed for Apex Legends Season 9.

Confirmed Legend buffs and nerfs for Season 9

Respawn have talked about their planned changes for Season 9 on social media, and the Apex Legends subreddit. It can be difficult to keep track of every announcement, so we’ve decided to go over each of them here.

Keep in mind that these aren’t the only changes that will be in the Season 9 patch, as more can be confirmed or discussed later on. Once we learn more, we’ll be sure to update the article with new information.

Lifeline

Respawn have the following changes planned for Lifeline’s abilities in Season 9:

  • Passive nerf
  • Ultimate buff

Lifeline’s passive ability is notoriously difficult to play against, and even the developers have acknowledged this as being particularly “frustrating.” She can generate a shield wall in the direction she is facing, and heal her teammates.

That’s why this ability will get nerfed, her ultimate will receive a buff. So far, the devs haven’t clarified what exactly these changes will be, but they’ve confirmed that playtests are taking place.

Gibraltar

Gibraltar’s Gun Shield will be nerfed in Season 9. Respawn stated that they will apply damage bleedthrough to this ability, so that the Legend will only be able to deflect a certain amount of attack damage.

The devs initially planned to introduce this nerf in the 8.1 update, but a few bugs popped up which led to it being delayed.

Loba

Fans of this Legend have been hoping that she’d get a major buff to her abilities soon, and that will finally be the case in Season 9.

Respawn have stated that they will focus on a few additions to Loba’s bracelet in the next update. This could be a fix for her broken jump drive, or perhaps they’ll make some other improvements to her kit.

One hurdle faced by players is her animation time when she enters or exits a portal. This leaves her vulnerable to enemy attacksa quicker animation time, making Loba less vulnerable when entering/exiting the teleport.

Horizon

Horizon’s introduction in Apex Legends Season 7 was followed by her immense increase in popularity. She gained the reputation of being extremely difficult to defeat, which is why she was hit with some nerfs in the Chaos Theory update.

Respawn confirmed that they have more changes planned for her in the future. While they haven’t specified what other nerfs she’ll receive, Lead Game Designer Daniel Klein has given fans an update.

“We weren’t ready with the big nerf for Horizon,” he said. “So we shipped what he had first. Bigger nerf coming soon, hopefully S9, but no guarantees.”

Other rumored buffs and nerfs for Apex Legends Season 9

While these Legends haven’t been confirmed to be getting a buff yet, Respawn have expressed their interest in making some changes to them.

Revenant

The devs have wanted to implement some improvements to Revenant for a while now, and have explained the difficult in doing so. They planned to change up his hitbox, but this is proving to be particuarly tricky.

Daniel Klein stated: “Revenant’s tactical ability is pretty reliable and hittable, so probably not a great candidate for more damage,” he elaborated.”

Crypto

While we don’t know for sure if there will be any buff for Crypto in Season 9, Respawn have stated that they’re considering some possible improvements.

That covers all the buffs and nerfs that the developers have hinted at for next update. If more are announced of confirmed, then we’ll update this guide right away.

With Season 9 scheduled to start on May 4, so expect there to still be more news to come on Legend changes between now and then.

Resident Evil 9 & Resident Evil 4 Remake in development

It seems that Capcom is developing Resident Evil 9 along with various other titles, such as the RE4 remake.

Published

on

Resident Evil Village

With Resident Evil Village on its way, there is a ton of speculation about what Capcom has planned next, and it seems that the RE9 might already be in production, along with some other projects.

There is a ton of anticipation for the upcoming Resident Evil Village, as new details keep emerging to feed the hype. However, it’s rumored that Capcom is already working on another follow up in the form of Resident Evil 9.

Some new information has popped up which suggests that the developers have been working on the title for a while now, at the same time as their other projects such as the RE4 remake. Here’s everything we know about this so far.

This was all revealed by Dusk Golem who took to Twitter in order to discuss Capcom’s announced and rumored Resident Evil titles. According to him, the devs had their hands full with multiple projects in 2018.

He has spoken about the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake in the past, along with RE Outrage, but this time was different. In the latest tweet, he also brought up Resident Evil 9 for the first time.

He explained; “Wait until you find out that there was a period of time that RE:2, RE:3, RE8, Outrage, RE:4 & RE9 were all in development at the exact same time (late 2018).” This led to a few fans getting hyped about the possibility of seeing some Resident Evil 9 news soon.

“I literally cannot see it releasing before 2024,” he said. “To the point it’s actually not worth even talking about right now, anything could happen to it in dev, from the whole thing being rebooted (it’s happened a lot in the RE series).”

That could mean that RE9 will end up having a six-year development cycle. Capcom often works on multiple projects simultaneously, so a 2024 release isn’t entirely out of the question.

With Resident Evil Village set to release on May 7, 2021, fans of the franchise have a lot to look forward to, and you get a taste of what’s to come in the the game’s “Maiden” demo.

Fortnite Ant-Man skin leaked as next Marvel crossover for Season 5

Fortnite data miners have discovered that the next hunter skin to come to Chapter 2, Season 5 is Marvel’s Ant-Man.

Fortnite Ant-Man

Fortnite is set to further bolster its roster of Marvel Superheroes, with data miners uncovering Ant-Man as the next Hunter to join Season 5.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 went all-in on superhero content. Avengers and X-Men joined the battle royale fray and Stark Industries arrived as a POI on the map. This super-hero-themed season ended with Marvel characters and Fortnite players joining forces to defeat Galactus – which brought us into Season 5.

Over the course of Season 5, Jonesy has brought hunters to the island from various universes and pop culture. We’ve seen The Mandalorian, Master Chief, Predator, and The Terminator arrive over the course of the season.

Fortnite Marvel characters

Season 6 is set to launch around March 16, but it appears Epic Games are going to treat players to at least one last hunter before the season ends.

An image and audio files discovered by Fortnite data miner VastBlast strongly hint at Marvel superhero Ant-Man’s arrival.

Popular and reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX confirmed this theory by tweeting on March 5 that “The next hunter is confirmed to be Ant-Man!”

Ant-Man was a notable exclusion from Season 4, especially when he had his own POI, Ant Manor.

However, it appears Jonesy has recruited him to help stabilize the Zero Point. Some crazy stuff with the Zero Point is expected to happen at the end of Season 5, and Ant-Man could very well tie into this. Ant-Man can shrink down so small that he enters the Quantum Realm, which may be a valuable skill Jonesy is looking for.

How to get Ant-Man skin in Fortnite

No information has been revealed on how Ant-Man will enter the Fortnite fray, but by looking at how previous new pop culture characters have been added, we can make an educated prediction.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

It’s highly likely that Ant-Man will come to the Item Shop alongside a series of cosmetic items associated with the character. We’re not sure on a release date, but with the end of Season 5 quickly nearing the horizon, it’ll most likely arrive at some point in the week beginning March 8.

Fortnite often releases male and female versions of their most popular skins, so it’s very likely that we will also be seeing The Wasp come to Fortnite either at the same time as, or not long after, Ant-Man arrives.
