Soulrise

Now I'm motivated to get my lung capacity to 100%

Recommended Posts

Soulrise

I've maxed out all my stats except lung capacity, mainly because I never found much use for it. But last night, while playing "A Boat In The Bay" with a crew I found a pretty cool use. We were all flying in a Buzzard to the location when one of the guys with maxed out lungs said "I'm gonna try to swim underwater to it, you guys provide air support" and promptly dove in the water. He swam underwater for quite a ways and got to the boat without having to come up for air once. None of the NPCs even realized he was there until he took off in the boat.

 

Now that I have a reason to care about lung capacity, do you guys have any other uses for it that you can share? Any motivation for stuff I can try once I get it is appreciated!

I'm with you on this. My stats are all at max - except Lung Capacity.

I keep forgetting about it, because it's not a priority, but it gives me something new to explore, so thanks for reminding me.

There's a few easter eggs and items you can find under water, but you'll have to YouTube them to find.

I think it's just a matter of having a new place to explore and getting that stat up.

Perhaps others might have more insight, but I'll focus on that for now.

You can also go shark hunting, too, I think... that's kind of cool! ;)

With lungs maxed, you get just under 50 seconds of dive time air or so, last time I bothered to time it.

 

Makes a huge difference really, if you are in the water much.

 

I maxed mine probably on day one as the main way I evaded the police when I first started playing was heading to water and diving deep, heh..

My lungs are maxed and you can stay down there for a really long time.

I was as well motivated to max mine.

 

Was playing around with the save editor for SP, and maxed my lung capacity stat.

 

I was surprised to see, I was able to stay under water for around 45 seconds or so.

I have max stats and before the recent patches the lung capacity was terrible.

It just became relevant and fun.

Still no real benefit IMO. I think mine are at 30%.

 

I've done similar things and have been targeted and gunned down in the water, so to each his own I suppose.

I don't know man... I've had mine maxed for ages from farming Coveted. I'd just swim while the noobs wrecked the cargobob.

 

It didn't seem to ever do much until you maxed it out. Then BAM you can be underwater for ages.

 

That was my experience dating back to late Oct through early Dec.

 

It may have changed in patches but always did do something.

I take back what I said,

 

I want to level it, but I'm not motivated at all to do it...

Bullets shoot through water (total f*cking bs irl) so I've found diving from npc's totally useless.

 

I maxed my lung capacity swimming from the Vespucci beach 6 car apt. to the helipad every session. After patch 1.08 or so they buffed the stat to actually make a difference. Which has made it worth while. But still only against players.

It also looks cool when you have all your stats maxed. With a boat, heli, tank, and car in tow.

 

I'm still workin on my flying skills, then this

i got my flying maxed by doing all the air races, but i noticed the heli races raise it faster, but i was also doing them by myself with everything default

Diving underwater to evade police could definitely be useful. Looks like I'll be swimming a lot as well. Maybe we should organize underwater knife fights in the Meet Ups section for those of us who want to max out our lungs without being bored.

I thought that was what the BONG in my apartment was for, to expand my lung capacity, I have been reading the literature you know.

I went ahead and made a post for an Underwater Knife Fight Meetup lol. It's a little ridiculous but if any of you are on PS3 and want to max out your stats in a less boring way maybe we can have some fun and make it less tedious.

i maxed my lung stat out. took about 45 minutes or so. i just jumped in the ocean, got underwater and floated right below the top. came up to replenish air and dove right back under. very simple.

its definitely useful to evade cops when you have a wanted level and are near water.

With it maxed out it is also a fun way to annoy people when you have a bounty on your head.
