Grand Theft Auto IV's second downloadable episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime.

Use parachutes to take part in Multiplayer BASE Jumping throughout Liberty City. Find the 9 BASE jump marker locations scattered throughout the city in Free Mode and hit Right Button to warp you (and anyone else with you in Multiplayer) to the top of the building. Clean, successful and well-executed BASE skydiving jumps will be tracked by time and other statistics that you'll be able track and compare with Friends at Rockstar Games Social Club.BASE Jumping.


BASE Jumping Tips:

  • Use the rotor blades of a helicopter to take out parachuting players. It's tricky to do, but extremely satisfying when you get it right.
  • Get two players on a superbike with a friend, find the biggest, highest jump you can, and hit it full speed. Jump off the bike in mid-air and parachute down.
  • You can shoot and kill players that are using a parachute with normal weapons. You can't shoot when using a parachute. So choose your team mates carefully.
  • Every helicopter in The Ballad of Gay Tony comes equipped with a parachute, which will be automatically selected if you bail in mid-air.
