Ooh, my guts... ow, ow, ow.

Chip is one of the more well liked tanker vagrants in Fallout 2.


A bald punk highly popular with his fellow vagrants,[1][2] Chip has one weakness: His popularity. About a week before the Chosen One came to San Francisco, he gambled with Lao Chou while drunk. So drunk, in fact, that he bet his spleen during a gambling session and lost it. Lao Chou removed it and sold it to Wong Yi Tze, while Chip was doomed to a short life full of suffering after being deprived of his erstwhile organ's immunological and blood-filtration functions.[3]

Interactions with the player character

Interactions overview

This character starts quests.


  • Get Chip's spleen.: Chip asks the player to recover his spleen. This requires securing the organ in question and the means to retrieve it. Initiating the quest by agreeing to help puts an expiration date on Chip: He'll die five days later, unless his spleen is back where it belongs.
