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.

Are you doing this while using a non-diver archetype?

I was not able to reproduce the issue with the steps that you posted.

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

What method are you using to resurface? Swimming up or the dedicated key? I find the former to be very unreliable as well.
