How to Open a Parachute in "GTA IV" Episodes


In a rather glaring -- and somewhat surprising -- omission, there are no parachutes in the main game of Grand Theft Auto IV. This means any misstep from a great height will cause your character to die rather ignominiously, with no hope of avoiding said fate. In "The Ballad of Gay Tony" and the later "Episodes from Liberty City" expansion games, however, the parachute is reintroduced as a usable item. Once you acquire the parachute, it is quite simple to use.

  • Cycle through your available weapons and items until you find the parachute in your inventory. Equip it using either the "Right Trigger" button (Xbox 360) or the R2 button (PlayStation 3).

  • Ascend to a great height. This can be done either by climbing a tall building, or stealing a plane or helicopter and flying up high.

  • Exit your flying vehicle or leap off the tall building.

  • Press the "Use" button in midair while your parachute is still equipped. This will open the parachute and allow you to glide safely to the ground. The exact button will depend on which system you are playing. On the Xbox 360, use the "A" button. On the PlayStation 3, use the "X" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • Before you can use the parachute, you need to earn it through the Basejumping minigame.
