How to go underwater in GTA 5

Sink or swim.

Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos is a series of islands situated in the fictitious Pacific. As such, it's only a matter of time before players encounter some body of water. And, in the likely scenario that one is fleeing from law enforcement, knowing how to dive underwater in GTA 5 is extremely handy in evading capture.

How to dive underwater in Grand Theft Auto V

To dive underwater in GTA 5, players will need to press the R1 button (PlayStation), RB button, (Xbox), or spacebar (PC).

Once underwater, controls will be inverted, much like flying a plane. Up is down and down is up. Your actions underwater will be fairly limited, but you can still attack while swimming. This will help mitigate unfortunate shark-related fatalities.
