Parachute Jump Controls

First, before you jump, you'll be able to look around using the right stick. When you're ready, press the square button (PlayStation) or X button (Xbox) to jump.

Once you jump, you can steer your fall with the left stick. Use the X button (PlayStation) or A button (Xbox) to deploy your parachute.

After the parachute deploys, you'll have a wider range of controls available to you. You can still steer using the left stick, but you can also make sharp turns by holding down L1 or R1. Holding down these buttons as you approach the ground will also enable you to make a more precise landing. To release the parachute, you must press the triangle button (PlayStation) or Y button (Xbox).

Finally, you can use the cinematic camera by holding down the O button (PlayStation) or B button (Xbox).

If at any point during the jump you'd like to cancel and retry, you can do so by pressing the square button (PS3) or X button (Xbox). If you quit a jump instead of retrying, you won't earn any money for it.

The controls work differently on PC. You control your descent just like you control your character with WASD, and you actually deploy the parachute with the right mouse button. You abandon the parachute by pressing F, steer hard right and left with E and Q, activate precision control with L-Shift and pop smoke with X.
