Clever GTA Online trick lets you survive massive falls

There is a clever Grand Theft Online trick that you can use to survive falls from extremely high altitudes.

Published

Trevor flying a jet in GTA 5

Falling to your death is a frequent risk in GTA Online, but there is a particularly genius tactic that you can use to survive falls from extremely high altitudes in the online multiplayer title.

GTA Online has a plethora of fun activities for you to try out, such as buying fast cars, buying fast bikespulling off Heists, and even inducing hallucinations to go on crazy trips.

You’re also in danger of getting killed in different ways, and falling from great heights is a possibility when you take to the skies in a flying vehicle. However, there is a tactic that can help you survive this.

How to survive massive falls in GTA Online

Parachuting in GTA Online

Reddit user ‘aboodfromdiscord’ highlighted this clever GTA Online trick which is meant to help you stay alive after falling into the ocean from high altitudes. In order to make this work, you’ll need to get a parachute.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Purchase a parachute from Ammu-Nation
  2. Use any flying vehicle to reach a high altitude
  3. Exit the vehicle and deploy your parachute
  4. Aim for a body of water then press triangle to lose the parachute

You will then ragdoll as you hit the water and this will let you survive the fall. This is especially useful when in a dogfight near the ocean and you need to eject from your vehicle in mid-air.

Many of the commenters pointed out how useful this trick is during aerial battles. “A lot of good pilots can ram you while you’re in your parachute and kill you so this is a good way to prevent that,” wrote one user.

However, you could still be in danger from other threats after landing in the water, such as enemies firing at you. So, you’ll need to think quickly when you’re in a combat situation, but this tactic is still helpful for quick escapes.

When is the GTA Online Fixers update: Dr. Dre, start date & leaks

Here’s everything we know about the GTA Online Fixers update, including the start date and return of Dr. Dre.

Dr. Dre in GTA Online

Some new leaks have revealed that Rockstar will be featuring Dr. Dre in a new GTA Online content update, and here’s everything know about it, including the Fixers update release date.

While GTA 6 has yet to be announced, fans of the Grand Theft Auto series still have plenty of content to enjoy such as the new GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition. Now, Rockstar is bringing some new additions to GTA Online.

Many new activities will arrive in the online multiplayer title when a new update drops, and some leaks point to the return of Dr. Dre in the patch. We’ll go over everything that has been revealed so far.

GTA Online Fixer update start date

Cars exploding in GTA Online

At the time of writing, Rockstar Games have yet to give us an official start date, but they often drop updates in GTA Online every Thursday. So, we will probably see it arrive during that time of the week.

While this update patch doesn’t have an official name yet, reliable leaker Tez2 revealed that it has been codenamed ‘Fixers’ which seems to suggest the return of “Tuner-alike contracts.”

This update will serve as a content shake-up to make things a bit more interesting for players when they drop into Los Santos in GTA Online. We will probably see some fun new additions when it arrives.

At the time of writing, Tez2 doesn’t have more exact details about what this content will be. Rockstar Games haven’t provided any information about the Fixers update but we’ll update this piece once we have some official information.

Dr. Dre returns in GTA Online Fixers update

Popular rapper Dr. Dre was a major part of GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist and he might now make his return in the GTA Online Fixers update. It’s unclear what role he will play when the patch drops.

Tez2 claims that new “legit” business will be added to the game as part of the update. Since Dr.Dre is involved, this will probably be music-centered and will also include some new contracts.

It’s worth keeping in mind that Rockstar Games have yet to verify this information, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until we hear something official. We’ll keep checking for any new developments.
