View Full Version : Parachute has disappeared

Like many other people, I have completed the Pirate Broadcast mission and lost the ability to deploy my parachute. I have reset the options and controls to default, I have erased and reinstalled the game data, I have triggered cutscenes to see if that would help....none of it worked.

I am stuck, 10 hours into the game, without a parachute. The "hit X to delpoy parachute" doesn't even come up. It's like every trace of the parachute has been wiped from the game.
I am 10 hours into the game and, missing an integral game item, can not progress. This is game-breaking, and needs to be addressed.

If no one from Eidos has a solution, just please let me know this is getting addressed in a patch. Thanks.

Have you downloaded the Aerial Pack DLC, DamageControl?

It has in it "Rico's Standard Parachute", which is a dropped crate from the Black Market just like any other equipment.

Picking this up will hopefully solve the issue.

Let me know if it works.

Im on PS3, Exact same problem here. Its really F****** annoying :@ It happened after the Broadcasting mission. Strange thing is that Xbox 360 users experiences the same problem. I Really hope Eidos is looking in to the problem!!! The game is not worth playing without the parachute....

THIS POST DOES NOT CONTAIN A SOLUTION

I sent a mail to eidos about the issue. They told me to contact square enix. I did, and after a couple of days this is what i got:

From a little googling around, it seems this issue affects ALL formats (i.e. 360, PS3 & PC)

Clearly then, this is a definite 'in game' glitch and as such, I believe Eidos/Avalanche/Square Enix have an obligation to fix this incredible oversight that - as others have said - practically renders the game useless.

Moreover, if (like me) this happened before you complete the Story Missions, considering that Mission 5 ("Three Kings") needs the parachute to actually get the mission going, the game is now also unfinishable :mad2:

Come on Eidos, please can you get this sorted?

Lucky for me, I just tried the mission at my mates and I couldn't do it, I was going to check this site, so I did and I saw this thread, and now we're not gonna do it :)
THANKS GUYS :D

Wise decision JonnehW :thumb:

Likewise, if I'd have known in advance, I'd have avoided this mission until the very end (as most of us would), but I've found this 'parachute' glitch doesn't appear to be very widely publicised. Seems no-one 'up-top' wants to admit the appalling, game-killing glitch this problem is :hmm: I mean, it does seem very unprofessional doesn't it?

For what it's worth, this was one of my all-time favourite games of recent years until this. Ok, glitches do happen and if it could be fairly easily solved, fine...but there seems to be no definite solution until it is directly patched - and when will that happen:scratch: IMHO, let's just say we're likely to be waiting........for a very long while...

Are we safe to assume Eidos are just ignoring this :confused:
