This guide will help give you a location-by-location breakdown of where you can find all submarine parts in GTA 5 and how you can collect them, additionally, we’ll also be going over the rewards you receive. Without any further ado let’s get into it
GTA V Submarine Pieces Locations
The GTA V Submarine Pieces quest can be activated by speaking to Abigail. You will find her standing near the Sonar Collections Docks. Simply talk to her and you can begin searching for all 30 submarine pieces.
You will come across sharks while looking for the submarine parts, if you don’t annoy them much; they won’t cause a problem, but it is always better to come equipped with a strong melee weapon. The map below contains the locations for all thirty pieces.

What happens once you collect all 30 submarine pieces in GTA 5?
After you collect all 30 submarine parts in GTA 5, you’ll receive a call from Abigail, where she’ll ask you to meet her at Paleto Cove. Here, you’ll begin her second and final mission, What Lies Beneath. You don’t have to do anything here, but you will receive a reward for all your troubles which includes
- 10 Dollars
- An autographed picture
Not exactly the best of rewards, but in your quest to acquire all thirty submarine parts, you’ll be able to find a bunch of weapons and some armor. Here you can also choose to kill Abigail if you wish. Doing so won’t have any ramifications.
How to fix the ‘Can’t get Submarine parts’ bug in GTA 5
There may be some cases where you’re unable to collect a few of the 30 submarine parts. This glitch happens as the game sometimes struggles to spawn the pieces in their correct places. The fix is fairly simple. Simply leave the area, switch characters, and then switch back to Michael and reattempt the search.
