Parachuting-GTAO

Cinematic

Parachuting is a game mode in Grand Theft Auto Online. Parachuting jobs were given by Dom Beasley until the Bottom Dollar Bounties update, after which they are given by the Junk Energy contact.

Each of the jobs can be accessed via the Jobs list on the Pause Menu, by walking into the blue corona (marked by a parachute icon on the player's radar or map) near the location of the jump in GTA Online freemode or selecting it from a post-job voting screen.

Time spent parachuting will increase the player's Flying Skill.

Description[]

Parachuting, as its name implies, involves players jumping out of Maverick helicopters high above the ground and opening their parachutes. Some jobs will involve a Base Jump from a building or mountain top. The players must then navigate their parachutes through various circular checkpoints, similar to air races.

If the players go through the checkpoint in the center of it, they receive the maximum 15 points. If they go through anywhere else in the checkpoint, they receive only 10 points. Just hitting the edge of the checkpoint will yield 5 points. Missing the checkpoint altogether will give no points for that particular checkpoint.

When near ground, the player must aim to land on a target consisting of blue concentric circles that can give either 15, 10, 5, or no extra points depending on how close to the center of the target they land. It is also possible to have 5 points deducted for a "faceplant" landing.

Missing the ground target entirely will result in a DNF even if the landing was survivable.

Weapons may be able to be used during the descent depending on the matchmaking options set by the job host.

In Parachuting, it's not about who parachutes the fastest. It's about who has the most points in the end. This is why it's better for players to go slow and steady rather than going straight down, in order to gain better accuracy in hitting checkpoints. Fastest time is only used to tie-break players with equal points scores.

If the player hits something during the match and falls, they will automatically lose.
