Sorry, I'm having a bit of a dim moment. How do you use a parachute? I set one off once by accident but haven't been about to do it since. Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The parachutes are very glitchy. If you jump off a high building, and while you're at the same level as you were before you jumped but in the air, hold the attack button (X on 360, not sure about PS3). If your parachutes have glitched up, you have to buy another then they will work. Thanks. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Thanks. The attack button is Square on PS3. Maybe they have glitched then. Should it always show up on the screen when you have parachutes? Cos the icon isnt appearing on my screen at the moment but apparently I do have 15 parachutes. I'll try it out later. Cheers.

Sometimes the icon will be there, sometimes it won't. Depends if you got the glitch, which about 50% if people do. If you've bought all the bag updates (To carry more parachutes) and your parachute bag is full, unfortunatly I don't think you will ever be able to use one.

Never had any glitches with parachutes. The only thing one should remember a parachute will not deploy if you're too close to the building you're jumping off. Or whatever object that is. I got myself like that a couple of times.

For me, it doesn't work if you've been in the air for more than about 7 seconds. Gotta do it quickly.

i've had the issue where sometimes the icon is there, others it's not. was playing a little last night and noticed it wasn't there. so out of curiosity i climbed up to the rooftops and jumped and hit x, was pleasantly surprised to see a parachute open and the icon re-appear.

I get the parachute count displaying only when I've bought some or used one.

I have a fully upgraded, full bag and can still use them fine.

If you need to reset the parachute numbers (if that full bag glitch exists), try replaying a Romulus Lair to set the counter back to 0.

Now, is it me, or do parachutes not really have any use in the game?

Dya know, I did look at the Hints & Tips section but saw many other threads in the main section along the same lines so stuck it in there. Ah well.

Anyway, I had a go last night at holding square whilst jumping from a high building...and it worked!

The Icon disapears because it knows its too much in the way...
But it re apears as soon as you use one...
Its like on COD...
If you not using your guns for about 15 seconds...
The ammo indicator will fade away untill you use it again...

What I don't get is why it resets you to 0.
