A long-time GTA Online player clips the moment they reach level 500 to unlock the Kingpin rank and silver globe rank by petting Franklin’s dog, Chop.
Reddit user Falloutfan4ever recently posted a clip of their experiences in GTA Online in which the player is at the F. Clinton and Partner headquarters, rounding the corner into Franklin’s office. Franklin and his dog were added to Grand Theft Auto Online as DLC with The Contract which also brought famous rapper Dr. Dre to the game with tons of new content included in the expansion. Although The Contract add-on is required to pet the well-known GTA 5 pup, some other players may have leveled up utilizing the same method that Falloutfan4ever did to hit level 500.
Falloutfan4ever’s GTA Online video begins with the player entering Franklin’s office and immediately heading for Chop who is resting in front of a bag of golf clubs in the corner behind the desk. Chop must be sitting for Grand Theft Auto Online players to pet him and when they do, they are rewarded with 800 reputation, which was just enough to put Falloutfan4ever over to the next level. After Falloutfan4ever pets Chop under his chin, these points tick up and ultimately result in the GTA Online Rank Up screen pop-up that further notifies the player of their accomplishment.
Because Falloutfan4ever would already have access to everything locked behind GTA Online reputation at level 500, their clip acts as more of a landmark for the long-time player that held off on petting Chop until being close enough. Beyond gaining the title of Kingpin as the result of surpassing level 500, the player’s level will also be shown to others with a silver globe behind it rather than bronze before it which represents levels 100-499, or blue which envelopes all the GTA Online players that are just getting started. GTA Online players that remain dedicated to upgrading their globe will further be able to unlock a golden globe at level 750 which is currently the top tier.
According to Falloutfan4ever, a notable chunk of their reputation was earned by selling special CEO cargo between their other activities as it rewards significant RP like when GTA Online offers double RP. While many GTA Online fans took to Falloutfan4ever’s video to express enthusiasm for their style of cementing the impressive achievement, others stated memorable ways that they leveled up. One Grand Theft Auto Online player claimed to have hit level 300 riding a tractor, and another reached level 100 by randomly punching someone, while several lamented that they didn’t level up by petting Chop like Falloutfan4ever.
Grand Theft Auto Online is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
