Ocean Current

So in the section that you go underwater, there is basically a maze where you and pushed along by an ocean current.

Does anyone know how to reach the bottom area? I believe going this way will unlock an armour piece?

The normal way to prevent yourself from being pulled by the current is to grasp onto the red plants with the claw and swing yourself under but the current is way too strong.

This is doing my head in...

Keep progressing in the story and you'll find the answer soon enough.

Don't want to give away any spoilers.

Outinthedark is right. But its not a spoiler even if he did tell you.

Long story short, you need a weapon youve not yet unlocked. You'll know what to do once you get it.

*POSSIBLE SPOILER*



I can really use some help on this one. I have all the weapons and read there is supposed to be a purple block you can swing yourself on but I see no purple block anywhere near the area.

Any ideas or is this possibly a bug?

You guys need to use your claw first and you must use the currents flow to your advantage to QUICKLY latch onto the branch and drag yourself around. Speed is key.
That extra momentem should be enough force to carry you just that little bit further down that you need.

After that you will come to the purple blocks as mentioned. Pull yourself with the tractor beam tool here on in. Goodluck!

Your going in the wrong way, the current after the tree is pushing up so you wont be able to swing yourself down.

Try the other way in by surfing the current straight down without hitting the spikes on the side. You'll need to be going fast enough so that you leave the current. Once you out of the current its pretty easy from there.

This works. You need to swing yourself under the branch like this guy said. Once you're under there just hold down and it pushes you out of the current.

I owe you one Pirate!
