Ding Dong, the evil witch is dead. In other words, the hated and troll-approved player Tyrant Mk. Jet bike in Grand Theft Auto Online Finally, after nearly half a decade of panic, he got nervous. While many players are happy with the change, others share concerns that it has underutilized this expensive vehicle. But it’s hard to hear these complaints amid the cheering online.

yesterday, Rockstar Games big update for GTA Online which improved a long list of issues and added new and highly requested features to the long-running online open-world action game. I personally enjoyed the update a lot, mainly because it’s now easier to earn money and have fun in private lobbies.

But the other big change was a serious downgrade The infamous Jet Bikethe ultimate sad device. Its missiles are now less accurate And its countermeasures (things like straw and flare) cannot be used repeatedly. The end result is that many players who once spent hours flying around town killing random players over and over are now trying to troll as hard as the update.

Tyrant Mk. II was added in 2018 as part of a content drop for new content at the time.After hours” update. Even before the vehicle is added It caused controversy. Before the update was released, dataminers discovered a futuristic looking bike in the game files and all hell broke loose online. People were worried that the jetbike—with accurate missiles, significant defenses, and a high top speed—would be too powerful and ruin free mode, allowing low-skilled sadists to quickly rack up kills and disrupt regular play.

Today, in 2022, it’s clear that the fears many had of the bike were valid, and as of 2018, the Tyrant Mk. II has become a running joke among the community. Even those who barely play the game, or don’t play it at all, are often aware of the fear and fury that surrounds this flying motorcycle. In 2019, Rockstar made it harder to quickly build a new jet bike If your old one is gone, but still sadists and trolls continue to use the vehicle.

Now after yesterday’s update and Massive suppressor nerves, players on GTA Online The subreddit (more) encourages its demise as a super weapon of trolling. In posts that display low accuracy missiles And Bicycle deathsMany players are excited by the idea of ​​less of these things being driven by idiots every session they join. Even players who love the tyrant and use it to grind quests or other non-troll activities They are satisfied with the rocket nerf Because they are still useful against NPCs, It is not easy to use against real players.

Plus, now when these PVE players fly around, people may not be able to right away Think they are nonsense trolls. Some fans even suggested that they would no longer feel dirty using a jet engine to complete missions.

Of course, as you’d always expect, there are players who believe the nerf is bad. Some cite the fact that it is an expensive vehicle and others point to it GTA Online It’s not supposed to be a game about people working together, it’s an open world where violence is encouraged.

Another interesting counterpoint to this nerf is that some players have reported seeing jets and other powerful vehicles online after the derating. However, it should be noted that these vehicles are easier to hit with explosive weapons, so the threat they pose feels more balanced. I saw a few players jokingly saying that tanks were a very old tool used by trolls in the early years GTA Online, may return. Honestly, I like that running and fighting a tank was a lot more fun than being randomly taken out by someone who spent five years practicing how to be stupid on an OP jetbike.

in my time in GTA Online Since the update, I’ve noticed a lot less jet bikes roaming the skies. I haven’t seen any tanks or other powerful alternatives fill the power vacuum, but it was nice to drive around Los Santos and not feel like there was a target on my back.

Regardless of how you feel about the nerf, the downgrade to one of the worst vehicles in the game is likely to lead to big changes in most online sessions. Sadness and trolling will never go away, but at least less skilled players looking to ruin other players’ days now have to think outside the box a bit.
