The GTA Online Trick You'll Want To Try For Yourself

The Pegassi Oppressor Mk 1 and its partner, the Pegassi Oppressor Mk 2, have long been famous in GTA Online for their high purchase prices and ability to go airborne. While the hovercraft-style Oppressor Mk 2 makes it relatively simple to fly long distances, one Redditor found out that players can make it across the map on the Oppressor Mk 1 simply by going inverted.


The Pegassi Oppressor Mk 1, which many fans have pointed out is a possible nod to the '80s TV show Street Hawk, was introduced in 2017 with the Gunrunning update. It immediately distinguished itself as a top-tier motorcycle due to its rocket-powered boost ability, attachable machine gun or missile weapons, and the gliding ability granted by the wings above the rear wheel. However, it was outdone by the Pegassi Oppressor Mk 2, introduced in 2018 as a part of the Warstock Cache and Carry update, which was an even more expensive, wheelless hoverbike that made longer distance flights even more straightforward.

However, TheFirstRaccount has been on a mission to demonstrate that the Oppressor Mk 1 is just as capable of an airborne threat as its older brother — and they seemingly proved it in their latest upload. In the video, viewers can watch TheFirstRaccount build up some momentum with an almost vertical leap before twisting his bike around midair, launching his booster jets, touching off the ground one last time, and finally flipping the bike upside down. From there, TheFirstRaccount manipulates the momentum of the bike and physics of GTA Online's RAGE engine to send the bike clear from one side of Los Santos to the other.


Even more impressive than the distance that TheFirstRaccount manages to pull off is the flight course the player chooses to take. In the video, TheFirstRaccount navigates under freeways, in between powerlines, and through gaps that most GTA Online players wouldn't try to squeeze through if their vehicle was facing the right side up.

TheFirstRaccount's inverted flight skills took some time to master, however. The player's Reddit history shows that they have been practicing with the Oppressor Mk 1 since at least June 2020. In the first post, TheFirstRaccount is noticeably shakier while flying the Oppressor Mk 1 through a tunnel while upside-down, even colliding with the ceiling at one point. 

TheFirstRaccount's skills have improved since then, so if you have the cash to drop on GTA Online's second most expensive motorcycle and the time to learn to fly it upside down, you may be able to pull off this stunt yourself. With a port arriving soon on the Series X|S and PlayStation 5 and GTA 6 still a long way off, this may be a good time to dive back into the seedy underbelly of Grand Theft Auto Online.
