How To Remove The Virus From The Chip

Available In Act 1 Job "The Pickup"

Remove Virus

During the main story job "The Pickup", you may be asked to remove some malware from a chip given to you by the character Meredith. This is an entirely optional event, so you don't have to worry about completing it. If you do so, you'll be able to pay Royce with this instead!
