Deus Ex Mankind Divided: Recommended Early Game Augmentations

Posted by on Aug 31, 2016 in featured, Guides, PS4 |

Taking a non-lethal approach generally gives more XP than a lethal one, so this list was made with that in mind. Non-lethal tactics mean more than just avoiding fights. It also means making sure that Adam can access all paths.

This list focuses on what augmentations to take during the early game.

Social Enhancer Get the most out of the dialogue challenges. This also allows interrupts during conversations, providing more XP and speech options.Getting this can be delayed, but make sure you do before boarding the first train.
Hacking Capture Start with level 1, then raise it to 3 before you ride the first train. This should let you hack most of the locks you run into during the early parts of the game.
Optional: Hacking Stealth Raise it to at least 1 if you want to keep your sanity. Or want to minimize save scumming.
Smart Vision Awareness is crucial to stealth.
Optional: Magpie Highly recommended if you want all that loot.
Optimized Musculature Get the heavy lifting out of the way.
Optional: Punch Through Wall Recommended but note that there are other ways of breaking walls.
Remote Hacking Works on lasers, robots, cameras. Required for some paths to become available.
Optional: Icarus Landing Removing fall damage is very convenient.
Optional: Icarus Dash Gives you more mobility, especially when maxed out. WARNING: Using Charged Dash to knock out opponents will void the Ghost bonus.
Optional: Glass-Shield Cloaking I don’t need to explain this, right? I’m only marking it as optional because I rarely used it.
Klipspringer Jump Mod Reach those greater heights.

The first Deus Ex was a remarkable game because of one thing: choices. Whenever it presented a problem it always offered more than one solution. Need to get inside a building? You can pick the lock on the door, get the key from a guard, convince the guard to open the door for you or just blow up the damn door. If you don’t mind doing a bit of exploring you might find a backdoor or a ladder that leads to a vent or an open window. The abundance of choices in the game was unprecedented at the time and has become a hallmark of the series.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is no different. The game allows multiple paths, solutions and approaches like its predecessor. Personally, one quest in the game stands out. It involves getting inside a police station.
