Free Fall

Freefall more than 100m and live (Single Player only).

Throughout the game you'll come across gliders which are in most cases on the high hills of the island. Only a few of these though are high enough to reach the 100m mark. The earliest and best one is on the upper left side of the island which you'll head over to early on in the game. Head to these coordinates - X: 442.4, Y: 651.1 - to find the glider. Now grab hold of it with and glide out to the water in front of you.

Don't move the gliders position and just head straight. Keep looking down with the until you're over the water and when you're in a good position, hold to drop from the sky. Once you hit the water, the achievement will unlock.

Go to the coordinates X: 442.4, Y: 651.1. In the top right corner of your map the coordinates are shown. There is a Glider on a high mountain. It's almost on the top so you will need to climb your way up. After reaching the yellow Glider you need to press X to use it. Do not not steer while you are in the air! Keep gliding until you reach the ocean. Once you are over the ocean press X to exit the Glider. You will then fall into the water and unlock the achievement.

Another spot to get this in the first area you uncover with the first radio tower. Just find the highest point above the cave to jump from.

Don't bother going out of your way for this. In the story mission Lin Cong I Presume? you'll meet Buck by a massive diving area. Just jump down. Bang.

Simple, there's a part where you have to jump from a plane to use a wingsuit. Simply... DON'T DEPLOY THE WINGSUIT. Boom, done, get the achievement, retry an dcontrinue your story.

804, 741. Glider right beside the ocean on an easy to access cliff, immediately adjacent to a camp.

this one is easy, search for a glider, hop on it, mark a waypoint on the nearest sea, fly there, upon reaching the waypoint, just hold X to exit the glider, and there you go, 5G. easy, sap sap the water

The story mission Lin Cong takes place at a large hole with water at the bottom and you'll meet Buck by this hole. Jump of the highest point for a guaranteed success. For those that missed it in the story line it is at aprox coordinates : X:496, Y:791. Big blue circle surrounded by green on the map. You can't miss it. =-P

The "Lin Cong I Presume?" mission seems to be the most viable option

in the mission where you get dropped out the plane to reveal the other southern part of the map you are forced to jump out of the plane with a wing-suit and a parachute, just don't deploy the parachute! no need to go specific places for it

Around x:660 y:740 there is a area with a deep ravine in the mountains, jump down in the water and it should unlock.

As soon as you get to Dr Earharndt's mansion go to the glider outside his house and glide off the cliff make sure your above water and drop off.

Yea, the glider at the point said in the guide wasn't there. I used the one at x:605.3 y:676.1 and glided to the small pond/lake at x:573 y:693 and jumped. Its a small area so the timing has to be right but its a good spot.

Like #15 I went to back/top of this pool and jumped in. I did have to do it twice from here for some reason though.

Lin Cong location didn't work for me, I tried it 5 times. I also tried flying the hang glider from Dr Earnhearts mansion over the water without dropping but it still didn't unlock.

A good place for this is rather close to the starting town. There is a giant hole in the ground, at least 10 car lengths across with some steps and stuff to get down. Just jump from the rocks on the far side where it is highest and then it should give you it.

If you have just killed Vaas, there's a better way to unlock this achievement. As I've used the glider before trying to unlock the achievement this way, it doesn't appear there anymore, so, this hint didn't work for me. After you help the agent (what was his name?!?!) to defend the plane to go south, well, when you get off the plane to use your suit, simply don't open it and you'll fall to the water and the achievement will pop.... the mission will fail, but the game will reload the checkpoint and you get the chance to do the things right, but now with the achievement... ;) It worked for me, though all by accident, as I wasn't quick enough to open the suit!!! :D

For some reason the glider did not spawn for me, but the cave did after 2 tries (didn't quicksand so it was a pain doing it a second time).

there was no glider where the video says, but Floyd XBA 's comment helped me out. Glider at 804, 741.
