Players in GTA Online do not anticipate that vehicle price changes will help combat griefing.
While many GTA Online players may already be anticipating GTA 6’s arrival, many others are simply trying to enjoy what time remains in Los Santos.
With Last Dose missions to play through and events to participate in, as well as new cars arriving recently with storage solutions – there’s still plenty for enterprising criminals to enjoy in the game no matter their style of gameplay!
However, some changes to vehicle pricing announced by Rockstar in its Newswire post about its latest update haven’t gone over well with longtime players.
What do you make of these proposed price changes to some of GTA Online’s more divisive vehicles?
GTA veterans’ dissatisfaction over finances can be seen in an angry thread on GTA Online subreddit started by user PapaXan who announced price changes that will take effect April 27.
Rockstar has stated that these adjustments are intended to more accurately represent the value of vehicles to players; with some models like the Brute Armored Boxville and HVY Chernobog having their prices reduced in order to make them more accessible, while other cars like Pegassi Oppressor Mark Two become more costly due to their “oversized utility, performance or powerful weaponry.”
Yet many players don’t seem convinced these changes, particularly price hikes for vehicles often used by griefers, will actually enhance the playing experience, with PapaXan commenting: “This seems more like an attempt at getting people to spend quickly before prices increase two weeks from now – some changes make sense such as Granger/Champ increased prices while other changes don’t. Who are grievers?”
Multiple other users appeared to agree, with LKincheloe suggesting an unarmed “Traveller” flying bike for $2 million could explain price changes better; and CommonCullen agreeing, noting “I feel bad for all the new players who will constantly have their abilities taken away by Mark Two (and thus must save up $8 million to acquire one themselves).”
IronMark666 offered his perspective on Los Santos’ current market for newcomers: “Long-term players in Los Santos now find themselves just like (real life) boomers who purchased and invested at exactly the right moment (in history), while younger people struggle to secure similar investments and properties.”
