1.15 Patch – Walk on Water & Air Glitch Guide

As of the new 1.15 patch in Grand Theft Auto: Online, all players can enjoy a heavenly walk across the water. Not only that, but you’ll be stuck floating mid-air.

  • 1. To get started, travel down to the docks marked on the map below. There is a large concrete ramp leading down to the wooden docks over the water.

  • 2. Jog down to the corner on the right and equip a gun — any firearm will work. Next, take cover against the corner wall out over the water. Not on the ramp leading down, but the wall over the water around the right corner.
  • 3. Keeping hugging the wall and move left. You’ll move deeper and deeper into the water. Go until you’re about shoulder-deep in the sea.
  • 4. Once you’re neck/shoulder deep, aim your gun as if shooting around cover by pressing [L1 / LT] — do it quick. Just a split-second of aiming will work.
  • 5. After aiming, you should slowly float upward slightly. Return to the corner on your right and peak around the corner, then leave cover-mode and walk up the ramp.
  • 6. If you’ve got the glitch working, your character will start walking in a very weird/hilarious way. Go to the top of the ramp, then walk back over the ramp — you should now be floating.
  • 7. Run over the water, run over the air, or just enjoy this glitchy miracle.

You can even keep going higher! Cross the water on the dock to an apartment building with stairs. Try to go up the stairs, then leave and go around the corner of the building to the right. There’s a fence over the water — run over it and you’ll keep floating toward heaven.

This glitch is purely for fun, it won’t provide much of a benefit. Your avatar will actually be trapped after activating the glitch, so die to respawn or restart the game to reset and return to the ground.

Better still get someone with a cargobob or use one from the airport, have them land it on the water near the marina/heli pad because it does float on water, do the glitch and walk halfway up the ramp, turn around and walk towards the cargobob from here you should walk onto the side where the floatation tanks are situated on the cargobob, then have you friend fly up to the height you want, a lot easier running around trying to find invisible stairs, have fun ;)

havn’t seen this method anywhere else so going to state claim to it :D
