‘Does Chop die in GTA Online?’ is a fair question to want answers to given how loved Franklin’s canine companion is. The pair make a return in the GTA Online The Contract update after a number of years away from the scene, meaning they’ve certainly aged a bit since we last saw them in-game in the GTA 5 story. While Franklin and Chop’s return in GTA Online is great to see, you might be a bit worried about our favorite Rottweiler kicking the bucket, so if you need to know whether Chop dies in GTA Online then ahead.
Is Chop alive in GTA Online?
Once you begin The Contract by setting up the Agency, your initial meeting will confirm that Chop is alive in GTA Online. During the first cutscene, Franklin introduces his canine pal who is lying on his dog bed in the corner of the office, saying “that over there is my old-ass homie Chop. Shit, he don’t get around too much no more.” When you subsequently meet Chop within the Agency, you’ll have the opportunity to interact and pet him, though you can’t play with him or do any training as you could in single-player.
As around eight years have passed in the game world since the events of GTA 5, Chop is understandably getting long in the tooth now, but he is definitely alive and well looked after. If you visit 3671 Whispymound Drive, aka Franklin’s home up in the Vinewood Hills, you’ll see that Chop still has his dog house in the backyard under the stairs from street level.
Does Chop die in GTA Online?
So, does Chop die in GTA Online? Thankfully, for all pet-lovers the answer is no, although he does have a close call early in The Contract after collapsing from eating a bag of Lamar’s LD Organics finest ‘herbal’ product! As well as being spotted around the Agency at various points, Chop also makes an appearance during the first Short Trip mission unlocked after completing the Dr Dre storyline, helping Franklin and Lamar by attacking the Vagos members and leading the protagonists into the warehouse.
Unlike in GTA 5, there are no situations where our dog is around while players have access to weapons, so it’s not possible for Chop to die in GTA Online. However, even if you manage to ‘kill’ him during the single-player campaign, he’s only really injured and, like other essential NPCs, will return to the game again shortly afterwards. You can therefore rest assured that nothing bad will happen to Chop, and he’ll be happily living out his days with Franklin and co.
