An underwater current is an element of gameplay that can hinder or help your shark swim. An underwater current is a constantly active feature of gameplay that travels in one direction.
Underwater Currents can be found prominently in between two underwater rock formations, rarely anywhere else.
Underwater currents push anything in their way in the direction that the current is travelling. If your shark swims against an underwater current, its speed will be significantly reduced whilst it is doing so. If your shark swims along with an underwater current, its speed will be significantly boosted. occasionaly a death mine will spawn inside the current making it sometimes difficult to survive traveling through the current for the megalodon or below.
