Bailed out of a jet right as I hit the water. Rolled into the water expecting to start swimming and my character stood up and I started walking.

This happened to me before off the eastern coast, I jumped off a rock into the water and instead of floating I just went straight to the sea floor. I ran around for a while but the ocean is just so f*cking huge it would've taken hours to circle the map.


Absolutely amazing down there, enormous 500 foot cliffs and drop offs, underwater canyons, tunnels and aqua flora. Lots of unique sights to be seen on the ocean floor.


Edit- some pictures to share :p


Underwater forest


Reminds me of the first few pre-release screenshots R* released of the seafloor.


Giant clams 


The Edge of the ocean. You die if you go any further.

No water mod + vehicles/helicopters is AWESOME.

Seems like a huge ass desert/grassy area with a sh*tload of cliffs and hills.

It's so cool. So much detail into something that anybody rarely sees. Ended up walking too far out and got spawned back on land.

Same thing here about a month ago. I can't recall how it happened though. I would leave the ocean, come back, and just walk on in like it was nothing.

I managed to do this by using a cargobob to pick up a friend with a jet ski and then dropping him from the maximum height into the ocean. He went underwater, hit the bottom, fell off and got up as if he had just fallen off a bike.
At the same time as dropping him, I tried keeping up to him by sky diving and not opening my parachute until the last second and I also ended up on the ocean floor but I died upon impact but when I re spawned, I could walk under too.

We found the hatch and even managed to get inside the sunken ufo.

Old thread, but still the same topic as I just discovered this glitch.


Not sure how it happened, but other players in the lobby also figured out this glitch was active so we all went exploring the underworld :)


I also discovered one neat aspect of this glitch: If you walk into the water you'll just walk on the ocean floor, but if you drive a vehicle in and wait for it to sink before getting out you'll swim with unlimited breath, until you go to crush depth (it hurts) or go to the surface and then you'll fall to the ocean floor and be on foot again.



edit: went to see the underwater crashed UFO then got bored and started a mission, the glitch was still active, then quit the mission and in a new lobby it's still active! Weird.

It's definitely related to entering the water in a vehicle, has happened to me in helicopters, motorbikes and a taxi...

Tried to show some random player in freeroam what was happening but they said they couldn't see it, then he killed me in a Titan, purposely crashing us into a building, so I paid him back several times. Me playing my new character, a level 7, him a level 43 :)

Just curious, what´s on the ground after ocean edge? Is it flat? It can´t be detailed to the infinite.

In my session when it happened it was only the female avatars that could walk on the ocean floor, the guys were swimming when they went under. I told them it was the mermaid update. They belived me for a while.

That's one awesome glitch. This tends to happen in games with water like this, I remember walking on the ocean floor in Mario Sunshine.

They should make something like this official. Add an oldschool diving suit like this that enables you to walk underwater:

Happens on foot too, my crew was messing around up by Trevors and decided to race across the Alamo Sea. 5 of us took off running into the water, and 3 of us that were closest to each other ended up on the bottom. The others couldn't do it, then randoms showed up and tried to kill us, lol. Found out most weapons work underwater, but if you fire an RPG run the other way quickly!

same thing happened to me when i jumped off the dock trying to get into my boat.  no matter how many times i went back to land and back to water it wouldnt let me swim or get in the boat, kinda cool, but pretty f*cking annoying cause i wanted to get in a boat, lol!  Not sure what caused it either, strange.
