What happens when you die?

Last Updated:

When you die in a mission, you’ll have the option to restart from the last checkpoint or restart the mission without other consequences. However, if you die while free-roaming, you’ll respawn from a nearby location where you died, and lose a certain percentage of your current money. The amount deducted to your money will increase over time if you end up dying a lot of times within a short span of time. Since the deduction is based on the amount of money you’re holding, dying can be seriously expensive.

Avoid this penalty!
Fortunately, you can circumvent around this penalty by reloading the last auto-save. Sure you might lose some progress but it’s better than losing a good amount of your money - unless money is not an object for you anymore. Also, dying from "natural means" like falling to your death, getting kicked by a horse, drowning, etc doesn't cause money loss.
