Question Why Cant We Shoot While In Water?

So I was playing cops vs crooks in multiplayer, and on the crooks side the boss started swimming and the rest of his guys went to go find a boat, so I started swimming after him and was like 3 feet away from him and couldnt pull out a gun and kill him.

The rest of his team came in a boat and killed me. Then they kept doing this since there's no way to kill him in the water without a boat. Guess I could of used a sniper rifle to kill him.

Anyways they should really add the feature to shoot while in the water or at least give us the knife.

do you know nothing about guns? The bullet is forced out from ignition of gun/Black powder via a spark. you can't get a spark in water there for you can't fire a gun while swimming.

Now the knife idea is pretty good. Guns can NOT fire underwater no matter what, and it will stay that way. It really sucks being in the water with an enemy, because once he reaches shore, I'm fucked.

Knives would be realistic. It's very plausable for underwater use. But I'm against the gun idea, too. Unless it were a harpoon like in the older Tomb Raiders for the PS1, but that'd be a little out of place for GTA.

the knife should work

many handguns can shoot while submerged in water

but thats a detail that i dont think is much of a big deal in the game, ive never found that a problem

Do YOU know anything about guns? the spark happens inside the sealed bullet when the firing pin hits it. Pistols are leathel underwater up to 9 feet the higher the caliber the less the bullet can go.. only draw back is that if it's clip loaded you only get one shot because it uses gas to expel the spent cartridge.

You still can't fire a gun in the water. Even if you could the water would slow it down. As proven in mythbusters.

actually in a later episode they proved you could fire a gun underwater and it would be lethal at two feet.

This episode in fact

at that range though they're pretty pointless.

If I had known guns don't shoot under water I would have told Roman to have his wedding in the Ocean so no one had to die.

An AK can fire under water. Then again an AK can fire just about any time
