Can't escape helicopters submerged in water
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I just noticed that it is impossible to escape choppers which are submerged under water after an emergency landing for instance, also I noticed that the character dies whitin secounds after the helicopter is submerged which is simply unrealistic in my opinion.

One thing that I've seen in the comments that I find to be worthy to be added as well: make it possible to jump out of a helicopter if it hovers close to the ground, for inserting divers and similar things.

I would like to see this fixed, if it so happens that i land in water, and I even survive it, then I would like to be able to get out as quick as possible, especially from the AH (little bird) since it is easy to get out and has no doors that could possibly stop me in reality from getting out.

Also being able to jump out hovering over water building rooftops and ground. (think dropping off divers, troops) Not saying pilot and co-pilot should be able to, but surely passangers should. But i think theres a seperate ticket for that.

Once the eject button is implemented (when we get parachutes actually) we will be able to get out of the chopper at any time!
Need to make sure it will be possible in water too actually so not an useless ticket.

This issue was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Please keep the issue monitored to see when it is fixed.

Love reading feedback like that from devs =) its heart warming hehe

If helicopter submerged, pilot and crew are ejected automatically and don't die.
If heli 2 m above water, get out action available.
If heli in/on water, get out and eject available.
@Astaroth, it's resolved. Ticket can be closed.
