What are the controls for the parachute? (minor spoilers)

#1HipHopBeatsPosted 9/27/2013 10:32:54 PM
I'm doing a bounty hunt mission for Trevor where you have to grab a nearby parachute, jump off a mountain and skydive after a fleeing bail jumper but no tutorial came up on how to control the parachute, glide and land safely. I keep crashing into the mountains while the bail jumper glides away.

Push forward to go down faster, push back to slow down, R1 and L1 steer you

Also, I can't remember but either L2 or R2 slows you way down, or maybe it's R1+L1. Can't remember.

You can download a 100+ page manual for the game from:
www.rockstargames.com/v/downloads

I'm sure they cover parachute controls in there somewhere.

Thanks. That 100 page manual is crap and mentions nothing about skydiving. The only good thing about it is the detailed maps.

Wow. That's stupid. You would think they'd say something about parachute controls.

Did you figure out how to control it okay? Pass the mission?

Yeah it's a waste of time downloading. Just crap about joining the social club and what the game is about and controls you already know basically.

I ended up killing him by mistake before he jumped off the mountain and it autosaved.

The dumb thing is, the game wouldn't me allow me to quick save on my cell phone when I was in his vicinity and I didn't even trigger the chase yet. I wanted to bring him back in alive since you get more money so I reloaded an earlier manual save.

Is there anywhere in game you can go to activate a text pop up tutorial about using the parachute? I figured there would a quick tutorial since there's one for almost everything else.

Most important this about parachuting is that R1 + L1 pressed together helps you make a precise landing.

This. Most important controls that aren't standard for most other things.
