Grand Theft Auto 5 is the latest installment of the prestigious GTA franchise, developed and published by Rockstar Games. The game follows the iconic open-world concept, allowing players to interact with surrounding elements on the map. GTA V also features an Online Mode, where you can join others on live sessions with additional content. It also brings back some of the familiar items from previous installments, including the parachute. Let's figure out how to use parachute in GTA 5 PC.

Parachute in GTA 5

The parachute first appeared in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Prior to this installment, fall damage was not that big of a thing in Grand Theft Auto, hence, there was no need for a parachute. However, when GTA SA came out, it also introduced a whole rainbow of realistic physics, including scaling fall damage. That was where the parachute came in as a life-saving option, and it caught on.

In GTA V, the parachute works in pretty much the same way, with a few tweaks. Players can now fire single-handed weapons when the parachute is deployed. You can also perform a cool trick: deploying the parachute while on the bike mid-air. However, the bike will fall down to the ground as you eject yourself out. The San Andreas Flight School Update allows players to equip a reserve parachute as a backup option. More on GTA V how to use parachute later.

Parachute Deploy and Control Instruction for GTA 5 PC:

  • Make sure you have a parachute on you, a spare one may come in handy
  • Save the game prior to the jump in case things go sideways
  • Go to the highest point you can (from a building/airplane). If your character spread his arms while falling, you have enough altitude to deploy the parachute.
  • Press the F button to open the parachute. To glide it, press the W, A, S, and D keys to control the directions. Holding the X key while airborne will activate the smoke trail.
  • Safe landing: Make sure you lean backward while landing by holding the Shift key. Otherwise, your character will faceplant, leading to potential injuries and even death.

Tips: Practice makes perfect. Do not go for locations while small landing surfaces (hills, skyscrapers, or moving vehicles) on your first try. Also, other players can shoot you down while you're deploying the parachute. You may experience involuntary movement when being hit until the parachute gets "ripped apart" and automatically detached.
