The road to staying unfathomably rich in GTA Online is paved with dedicated crews relentlessly executing daring heists and dangerous sales missions that’ll maximise their revenue.

These dedicated grinders face a host of challenges in their pursuit of the green, but often the most terrifying of these come from griefers using powerful vehicles like the Oppressor Mark 2 and the Deluxo.

Now though, they could be in for a fresh headache, as one player on Reddit has proposed a new addition to the game that has GTA’s elite torn on whether it would be too overpowered.

Do you think a stealth jet would be a good addition to GTA Online?

The thread on this topic in the GTA Online subreddit began with a post from the player in question, user lewolfcow, who shared an image of a jet landing and asked: “Would a stealth fighter jet be (too) overpowered if Rockstar were to add one?”

Some of their fellow players thought not, recommending ways in which the jet could be rendered useful, but not too potent, with user Competitive-Common91 saying: “Honestly, not really. I’d say (to give it) the buzzard missiles alongside the B-11 type explosive ammo (not crazy overpowered rounds) and then just (make it) like the Akula, where you can’t shoot while in stealth mode.”

On the other hand, user Kermit_El_Froggo_ suggested: “No explosive machine guns, but (long range) lock on missiles, maybe have it be a bomb bay door that you launch (the) missiles out of, so it takes a bit of time to pop in and out of stealth mode, plus (give it) a limited capacity (of) the missiles.”

Meanwhile, user AKofJax specified: “Considering I've been damn good in my Akula, I would say yes, but only in the right hands.”, prompting anon-name- to reply: “If you must specify that it’s only good in the right hands, then it very well should not be added, considering what a fair amount of the player base is (like) and how they’d use it.”

User skimask97 echoed this sentiment in slightly less polite terms, saying: “No I (don’t), (you’d) get griefed left and right all day long without knowing where the griefer is.”

This pessimistic take was similar to user IndustrialDragon’s theory of what the jet would look like if Rockstar actually did add it in, with them speculating that: “it would be non-weaponized, underperform, and not have stealth capabilities.”
