When you go in water and dive under you cannot surface correctly. For me my vision just starts to go black even when im on top the water.
- Legacy ID
- go into water
- Dive under
- Try to surface
Just encountered this today in a MP mission. I (explosive specialist) entered the water over a few rocks and swam for ~ 30 m. Couldn't dive and although my character was clearly surfaced he drowned.
I also had this problem today. I was playing a MP mission "wasteland" and I swam out to the island to the far north, and also to the island to the north-east, I was in as a medic, and I did not have a wetsuit nor a rebreather. I managed to survive both of the swims, but even while on the surface of the water I was drowning. I was able to get air after repeatedly diving then resurfacing, after a few tries I would usually breaks the surface and get some air.
Yeah there's this problem.
Easy way to fix it is to look up/down repeatedly until you hear your soldier taking a breath in 1st person.
EDIT: Forgot to say that it happens more often (way more often) in MP enviroments
