Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V Achievements

Out of Your Depth

You're gonna need a bigger boat...  

At any time during your playthrough, make your way to the beach in Western Los Santos and hop into a jet ski near the pier. Drive out into the ocean until the water is dark blue, as this is where you can generally find sharks if you wait long enough (you will know if a shark is nearby when there is a red dot on your mini-map). Once a shark appears, hop off your jet ski and dive underwater. The shark will ignore you at first, but once it gets close it will finally eat you and the achievement will unlock.

Get killed by a Shark is my guess.

Noooooo God! No god please no!

I'm guessing if I was on a jet ski or a speedboat a shark would be able to attack me.

I'll be too afraid to go out to see now.

This is the downside of been Thalassophobic (fear of the ocean and everything in it).

for this go out into the deep ocean and when a shark appears on the radar just dive. It will swim around then eat you and achievement unlocked!

Take a Boat, Jetski or swim to the deeper Water / Pacific and look at
your Radar for a red Point. It is a Shark. Simple jump into the Water
and wait 1-2 Minute. The Shark attacks you automatically and the
Achievement is yours :)

Hey guys, a quick and simple guide for those who don't want to be bored to death getting such a simple achievement.

While I'd appreciate any views on the video, I understand some people on their phones can't watch it, so for them, check out the quick guide underneath this. For those that do watch it, thank you for your view and if you want more GTA V achievement guides and GTA Online guides when that comes out, please subscribe and share with your fellow achievement hunters! Cheers.

For those who can't view it as they're on their phone, simply head to Del Perro Pier, grab a jet ski and head South as far as you can until you see a red dot, jump off and just swim around the shark until he heads for you and eats you. This ca

These 'lfg' people sound like elitist pricks to me," join my gang but you are a pledge till i decide if you're worthy of the honour."

I'll just make a gang up of equals, as long as they help out/show up/invite are welcome in mine :)

Is the Shark not spawning for anyone else? I literally wait longer than 15 minutes every time I go out there, from this pier, on a ski boat, and I enter the darkest blue zone and stay there waiting but nothing happens.

Are you supposed to do anything else other than sit there and wait? - I've tried going around in circles and in the same general area but still nothing happens.

Are you supposed to be a specific character? - I assume not because I've tried it with all three now.

Does it work with an online character? - This I haven't tried but will be assured to do so, it's just that the video shows a campaign character.

If there are any solutions for my problem please provide info or link me to help.

Thank you.

This achievement was literally the first achievement I got when the game finished downloading. I took one look at that achievement, and sent Michael out into the ocean where I got owned by a shark. Easiest achievement ever. XD

If you have trouble finding the right location, just take a boat or jet ski as far out until it breaks down (found out on a YouTube comment lol. It takes awhile but works. The engine will breakdown and spawn a shark near you
