When Grand Theft Auto V came out, it quickly became one of the most popular games of the year, for good reason. In addition to the thrill of stealing cars and crazy heists, the player can explore the 'open world' in a number of different ways. You can play golf, go to a bar or just drive along the beach. You can even go swimming, in your own pool or in the sea.

Steps

Dive and Swim Underwater in GTA V Step 1

Step 1. Find a place to swim

Since GTA V is set in a place based on California, it is not difficult to find such a place. When you play as Michael, you can practice swimming in your own backyard. If you'd like to swim in a more public place, there are a number of lakes that feed the rivers and are open to the public.

  • In the center of the Tataviam Mountains is a large lake. This mountain range is located northeast and a short distance from Los Santos.
  • North of Los Santos is another large lake, in the middle of Vinewood.
  • Besides the ocean, the largest body of water is the Alamo Sea, which feeds a number of small rivers. The Alamo Sea is west of Sandy Shores.

Tip: The world in which GTA V takes place is surrounded by water on all sides, so if you walk in any direction long enough, you will eventually end up at the ocean.

Step 2. Enter the water

You can just walk into the water. As soon as the water comes over your character's head, he/she will tread water.

Step 3. Start swimming

While on the surface, you can use the left lever (PS3/PS4, Xbox 360/Xbox One) or, on PC, the WASD keys to swim forward, backward, left and right.

The WASD keys on the PC move your character as follows: your character moves forward with W, back with S, A left and D right

Step 6. Swim underwater

To swim forward underwater, press X (PS3/PS4), A (Xbox 360/Xbox One), or Left Shift (PC). Your character's controls are reversed underwater (much like the controls of an airplane). To swim up and surface, press the left lever down and hold X (PS3/PS4), or A (Xbox 360/Xbox One) or hold S and Left Shift (PC). To dive deeper, push the left lever up and press X (PS3/PS4), or A (Xbox 360/Xbox One) or press W and Left Shift (PC) at the same time. You can move left or right by pushing the left lever to the left or right respectively, or, if you're playing on PC, by pressing the A and D keys respectively.

Step 7. Attack while swimming

You can only use a knife in the water. In case you need to defend yourself against sharks, you can pick up the knife by pressing the L1 button (PS3/PS4), LB button (Xbox 360/Xbox One) or Tab button (PC). Once you've got hold of the blade, attack by pressing the Circle Button (PS3/PS4), the B Button (Xbox 360/Xbox One), or the R Button (PC).

You can attack underwater and when you are treading water on the surface

Step 8. Check your health

You can't stay underwater forever. On the screen, you can see a light blue meter in the lower left corner, next to your character's life meter. This meter indicates how long your character can stay underwater. Once the light blue meter is depleted, your character's health will plummet at lightning speed. If you don't reach the surface before the life meter is depleted, your character will die.
