GTA Myths Wiki

The Abyss is a mythical location and the name given to the deepest part of the ocean in Grand Theft Auto V.


In a Submarine, the player can travel to extremely deep ocean depths and find fish, Shipwrecks, Airplane Wrecks, underwater plants, and even a Sunken UFO. The Abyss encircles the entire map and is usually located a few miles offshore. The Abyss appears as a deep dark ocean trench without visible bottom. In a submarine the player can dive deep, but eventually once they reach a certain depth, the submarine will begin to alert the player that the water pressure is too high. If the one continues to go deeper, the submarine will experience a structural failure and it will implode from the water pressure, killing the player instantly. The Abyss has barely any physical characteristics. Other than that, it is very dark. It is so dark, it's even hard for the submarine's lights to cut through. 

Players often report hearing strange noises while diving deep into The Abyss.

If the player uses any sort of hack or cheat to bypass the ocean depth limit, they will find that The Abyss is simply a large and completely black void. The player will still be able to swim around inside of it. If the player continues swimming downwards, the water will continue getting darker and darker, until the player encounters Blue Hell. After this, they will get teleported to the nearest pedestrian pathway on the mainland.

Rumors of the Kraken[]

There are many rumors circling around the internet that the legendary Kraken exists in the depths of The Abyss. The Kraken is a relatively new myth, so there has not been much evidence nor information to support the rumors that circled the web.
