The Oppressor Mk II vehicle is one of the most controversial aspects of GTA Online, as enemies will often use it to repeatedly kill you or destroy your vehicles.  Players enter "idle mode" to avoid them.

Now, the Summer Update will combat this problem by bringing a major nerf to the effectiveness of domestic missiles and countermeasures for the flight vehicle.  This will make it easier to take them off than before

The Summer Update will also increase some of the GTA$ payouts in GTA Online so that players can receive additional rewards for their efforts.  Bodyguards, aides and MC members will receive a significant increase in the amount of cash they earn.

Other activities that will provide higher payouts include races, adventure mode, and select heist finals.  This will ensure that you will be able to purchase in-game items such as clothing and vehicles very quickly.
