Chip Merger is a mechanic in RoboCop: Rogue City where you can take OCP chips you don’t want and then merge them into a more useful upgrade chip. This is used to upgrade the Auto 9 pistol, which is the iconic weapon of RoboCop. Optimal use of chip merging can lead to powerful chips that shred right through enemies.
In this guide, I’ll be teaching you how to merge chips in RoboCop: Rogue City.
How to Merge Chips
You can merge chips in the Auto-9 tab by selecting the Chip Merger on the bottom right. You’ll be asked for three chips to be merged into one with better value. It’s impossible to predict the percentage that comes out of the new chip, but it’s never less than any of the three chips you sacrificed.
The value of the upgrade chip you get from Chip Merger can be increased by investing in the ENGINEERING skill. This will give you a boost in chip modification which allows for better Auto-9 upgrades.
Using the Chip Merger can seem like a bit of a calculated gamble, but it’s well worth it. With the amount of PCB boards and upgrade chips you find early in the game, you’re bound to run into chips you don’t really need. If you have any surplus, then merging chips isn’t a bad idea.
To get the best chips, we recommend investing in the Engineering skill early in the game. This will get you better chips as you go through the main objectives of the game which you can later use to merge for even better upgrade chips.
Once you’ve completed merging chips, you can equip that chip to a node on the PCB board. This will increase that stat by the percentage according to your chip. The higher the percentage, the better the stat. Just be careful that you don’t lead to the nodes that give you penalties or your Auto-9 will suffer from a decrease in performance.
