This Achievement can be obtained in the Geothermal Valley next to the Ridgeline Base Camp which can be accessed either before or after exiting the Archives mission.

To the right of the Camp then is a ramp that will be used to perform the swan dive. Back away from the ramp and click cn_LS in to sprint towards the ramp, as soon as you hit the edge hit cn_A and then quickly tap cn_LT to perform the correct dive.

This might take a few attempts because of timing but if you fail simply reload back to the Camp and try again.

MrZweisteinThe achievement doesn't unlock even its showed with 100% in the achievements app. :/

LeiChatHow do you get passed the spiked wooden barrier on the way up the hill?

JasonDeadlyIs the timing SUPER tight on this? I cant get this. I'm pressing LT right after I press A. Hrrmm. Anyone with tips please help.

JasonDeadlyI'm convinced this is bugged now. I can only get the pencil dive, not headfirst swan dive. Very frustrating.

Evil Brett DeezHey guys, I think the angle you approach and jump off the ramp is important, I couldn't get it until I made sure to aim more toward the middle-left part of the ramp to jump. Once I did that I got it on my first try.

Kexol^Nice comment. Didn't work till I aimed for the middle left part of the platform.

DAGGERO97Had a lot of trouble this, but got it by sprinting off the small edge of the cliffside beside it on the right, not the actual platform. Then it worked first time!

Apostle92627@DAGGER097, thanks for your comment. I tried that and it worked on my first try as well.

UnfadingShimmyAfter many frustrating attempts. I finally just jumped off the cliff to the left of the platform, hit LT, ding...

Deadsh0tGG@DAGGER097 thank you for your comment, mate! Tried about 20 times from the ramp with no success. Went to the cliff (on the left side though) and not to the ramp and got it with no hustle, on my first attempt.

Sneaking ZombieSo no matter what I've done nor how long I have done a Swan dive for I can not get this to unlock. I'm not overreacting either, tried all the other ways from the comments and had no luck, even dove for 5 secs and counted and nothing :(

Warboy925Plus one from me, it great that its one of the high dives you need for the challenge anyways....
Posted by Warboy925 on 29 Jul 17 at 05:39
KennyannydennySame as the other achievement. You don't have to sprint. Sprinting has absolutely no effect on how far you jump. A game tip in the beginning of the game explains that.

TheAnonymitythis makes me sick. an achievement based off poor gameplay mechanics + RNG.... i have done this dozens of times and still nothing. i have tried sprinting, not sprinting, different angles etc and nothing works... she only wants to pencil dive, but not even immediately.

OrpheusDeGrootI tried it a few times with sprinting, and it only did the pencil dive for me. Then I tried it without sprinting at all, I think I even stood still, it triggered the swan dive for me and the achievement with it...

JakThaRiPP3R84why the fucking fuck will my whore not dive off this cunt. cunthole dynamics needa learn to fucking code properly.

Warboy925Looks like they only coded it right for 33,582 people on this site.........why not the rest of the gaming community???? Doesn't seem fair at all!!!

Ultra RevengeI just wasted an hour of my life before finding this. If you are struggling with this, as myself and many others did, try this solution; walk to the right of the ramp and jump directly off the cliff, quickly tap LT. I got it first try. The video demonstrates this. Full credit to PowerPyx on Youtube. https://youtu.be/YZIDTzAc2dU

EscapeTheRoachAfter an hour...I did it! I jumped from the left of the rampsmile

Kanchanaburisame here, got the challenge for the jump completed and the achievement for 2.5 by jumping off the left of the platform which never worked.

WildwoodMikeI just got this by walking to the right of the platform, hitting A to jump, then immediately holding B. I couldn't get it to work with LT.

Darth Hawk CZJust jump from the cliff next to the ramp, it works like a charm there. Still counts for the dive challenge FYI.

Iggsy81Can anyone explain how far into the story you need to be to access this area? For me it's blocked off with spikes and im worried i've missed the base camp and now it's just locked away..

AerithenYou have to get pretty far, Iggsy. This becomes available shortly after:

CitrineWorm138Thanks to WildwoodMike for the tip - I could not get it to work in >30 attempts trying to hit LT, but I got it first time hitting B.
