Chip-ripping is a technique in Syndicate (2012). An Agent stabs a pen-like tool into the ear or neck of the target, extending snake-like cords through his or her flesh until they latch onto any brainstem-mounted chip (such as a DART chip) they may have installed, then forcibly extracting it. Unsurprisingly, this universally results in the instantaneous death of the target. Any data or programs contained on chips extracted in this way can then be transferred to the user's own systems, gleaning useful information or even augmenting their abilities.
