Supercop (also known as Ultracop) is a phenomenon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
The myth took off with internet forums, with numerous users sharing their experiences and encounters with an invincible group of police men. Certain disconcerting attributes of such cops, lead them to be named as Robocops, Supercops or Ultracops. The phenomenon states that when a player has achieved an elevated wanted level, a particular cop or group of cops, will unexpectedly approach the player, out of nowhere. Though, the event is valid but certain players regard it as an in-game feature.
At times, Supercop can bust the player in mid-air. it's likely that Rockstar didn't create a code for such an event, in the altitude limiter. This specific trait has lead players to form a comparison between the cop and Agent Smith from the 1999 movie The Matrix.
Another of these startling events is the invulnerable cop, a certain event in which it's non-viable to shoot a cop, much like T-1000/Austin from the film Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
A technical explanation has been put forward that explains that the game accidentally doesn't load the solid part of the cop, which leads the bullet to pass through it. Such other incidents includes teleporting of cops from specifically wider ranges.
