System Chips in NieR: Automata is a category of Plug-in Chips. System Chips provide changes to the HUD of the game, such as showing a mini-map, displaying the HP Gauge of the player, cooldown of skills used, and many more. System Chips usually consume a small amount of memory of the character to use it. All Plug-in Chips have a Cost that determines how much space they take up when equipped in storage. You can purchase more storage space from merchants so that you can equip more chips. This page covers a list of all the System Chips in NieR Automata.
Helpful Tips for Choosing a Plug-in Chip in NieR Automata
- There are caps when equipping multiple of the same Plug-in Chips to combine their effects. The Drop Rate Up chip effect is capped at 90% and so the maximum effect can be achieved with one Rank 8 chip. In contrast, the EXP Gain Up chip has an estimated 450% cap which is far greater than the 100% effect on a single Rank 8 chip.
- Sometimes equipping two lower Rank chips to achieve their maximum effect can cost less storage than equipping a max Rank chip, even if the max Rank chip is ♦ Cost.
- Some chips can be sacrificed in exchange for more power at the cost of convenience or utility, such as choosing to not equip HUD chips that display information like damage values, the mini-map, or even your HP.
