GTA Online to Nerf Los Santos’ Deadliest Vehicles
With the release of GTA 5 and, by extension, GTA Online on the PlayStation 5 this week, players are in a particularly irritable mood. While we found the community had mellowed a lot over the last few years on the PS4, we’re getting blown to pieces within seconds while minding our own business in Los Santos right now. We wouldn’t recommend trying to sell cargo for a couple of weeks.
Rockstar is on the case, however. A pointed remark at the bottom of the developer’s latest blog post notes that it will be “making further adjustments across all versions of the game, in addition to rebalancing other areas — such as vehicles commonly used in PvP combat”. Some of the more popular vehicles in the game include the Oppressor Mk 2, which has unbeatable mobility and some pretty potent lock-on rockets.
The studio has been working to lessen the superiority of some of the game’s vehicles, with the addition of upgrades exclusive to the Agency that allowed you to effectively jam lock-on radars and reduce the fortunes of griefers. It sounds like it may be prepared to just outright alter the effectiveness of these pimped out troll mobiles moving forwards, however, and we’re fascinated to see its approach.
If you’re just picking up GTA Online and aren’t sure where to start, we recommend you have a gander at our GTA Online guide through the link. You may want to think twice before picking up some of the Best Cars and Vehicles to Buy, though – it sounds like Rockstar could pump the brakes on their effectiveness any time soon.
