Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Augmentations Guide

Our Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Augmentations Guide details everything you need to know about these in-game augmentations. I have also provided some tips to help you choose which augmentations are best suited for a variety of playstyles.

Regular Augmentations

Social Enhancer

This basically allows you to monitor an individual during conversations by noting their heartbeat, personality, etc. Those of you who are looking for ideal debates can rely on this one.

Dialectic Enhancer
Allows you to extract information during conversations.

Hacking Capture

You start the game with this augmentation which is required for hacking. Depending upon the playstyle, you can completely ignore hacking. However, if you are looking forward to 100% the game, you definitely need to invest in this one.

Hacking Capture Level 2
This allows you to break into Level 2 security systems.

Hacking Capture Level 3
This allows you to break into Level 3 security systems.

Hacking Capture Level 4
This allows you to break into Level 4 security systems.

Hacking Capture Level 5
This allows you to break into Level 5 security systems.

Camera Domination
This basically allows you to disable security cameras and even redirect them to your advantage. A must-have for stealth playthrough!

Turret Domination
This allows you to disable or take control of turrets. However, if you are going for non-lethal playthrough, you may want to avoid this one.

Robot Domination
This allows you to take control or completely disable robots. Once again, if you are going for non-lethal playthrough, you should avoid them.

Hacking Fortify

This allows you to spend time inside a security system after AI has started a trace. This essentially results in you completing your hack and AI taking a long time to trace you. When it comes to fortifying a node, you should try and wait until the AI has started the trace.

Hacking Fortify 1.1
This slows down tracing against fortified nodes.

Hacking Fortify 1.2
This further slows down tracing against fortified nodes.

Hacking Fortify 1.3
This slows down tracing against fortified nodes.

Hacking Stealth

Hacking Stealth allows you to remain ins stealth and avoid forced out of system in more advanced hacking terminals. You should always prefer it over Hacking Fortify.

Code-Level Rootkit Ver. 1.0
This reduces the chance of detection by 15%.

Regenerative Rootkit Ver. 2.0
This reduces the chance of detection by 30%.

Polymorphic Rootkit Ver. 3.0
This reduces the chance of detection by 45%. It is recommended that you get it during mid-game if you are going to get it at all.

Infolink

There is really no need to invest in these augmentations. They are built-in and always remain online.

Stealth Avatar

This is another built-in augmentation that allows you to see your last known location where enemies spotted you and helps you avoid getting caught.

Retinal Imager
This displays your last known position where enemies spotted you.

Lidar Mark-Tracer

This allows you to trace targets whom you have already spotted. Even if these enemies go behind a wall, you will be able to see them. This is not a must-have, but if you have hard time looking at the mini-map, you can get this.

Base-Grade Mark Antenna
This allows you to trace up to 10 enemies.

Mid-Grade Mark Antenna
This allows you to trace up to 25 enemies.

Hi-Grade Mark Antenna
This allows you to trace up to 40 enemies.

Smart Vision

This basically allows you to see enemies through the walls so that you are able to observe their actions and come up with a plan. It does not matter whether you are on a stealth playthrough or an aggressive one, this is one useful augmentation. However, you should keep track of energy consumption for early augmentations.

Wall-Penetrating Imager
This allows you to spot enemies behind walls and other objects.

Rough Transmitter Tuning
This allows you to spot enemies behind walls and other objects with less energy consumption.

Fine Transmitter Tuning
This allows you to spot enemies behind walls and other objects with even less energy consumption.

Magpie
This allows you to locate useful objects in addition to enemies.

Retinal Prosthesis

This is another built-in augmentation, but also has a secondary augmentation which provides flash resistance.

Retinal HUD
This allows players to see HUD and VR.

Flash Suppressant
This allows players to be immune against light changes from large-scale explosions and grenades.

Wayfinder Radar System

This built-in augmentation allows you to see cameras, drones, turrets, robots, etc. However, this also has secondary augmentation which allows you to see where enemies are, what are they doing, and things like that. Although not mandatory, you can get this mid-game and better plan your movement.

Radar Alarm Timer
This basically shows you the time until an alarm stops.

Topographics
This makes better radar’s display of walls and barriers.

Range Boost
This increases your radar’s range so that you are able to view more area around your character.

Vision Feedback
This allows you to see everything’s field of view on your radar which is massive for avoiding cameras and turrets.

Noise Feedback
This tells you how loud you are while moving so that you can change your pace and avoid unnecessary confrontations.

Sentinel RX Health System

This augmentation allows you to have more HP, regenerate HP faster, and regenerate HP quickly after getting injured. This is ideal for players who do not like stealth.

Civilian Settings Defib
This allows you to regenerate HP.

Medical Settings Defib
This significantly improves your HP regeneration.

Military Settings Defib
This improves HP regeneration rate even more than Medical Settings.

Angiogenesis Protein Therapy
This sets your HP to 100 points.

Synthetic Growth Factors
This sets your HP to 125 points.

Uninhibited Angiogenesis
This sets your HP to 150 points.

Factory Regen Delay
This causes a long delay before HP regeneration begins.

Sentinel Regen Delay
This vastly improves the response time before HP regeneration starts.

Elite Regen Delay
This vastly reduces the time before HP regeneration starts.

Sarif Series and Energy Converter

This is the augmentation that everyone needs to go regardless of playstyle. Almost everything you do in the game requires energy and this augmentation not only provides you with more energy, but also speeds up the regeneration process.

Cautious Recharge Rate
This speeds up the energy recharge rate.

Efficient Recharge Rate
This further speeds up the energy restoration rate.

Peak Recharge Rate
This is possibly the best augmentation as it allows you to have maximum energy recharge speed.

Standard Capacity Biocells
This is your default energy level in the game.

Enhanced Capacity Biocells
This improves your energy level in the game by a small margin.

Ultra-Capacity Biocells
This vastly enhances your energy level in the game – essentially pushing it to maximum possible.

Safe Recharge Delay
This is the default delay after which energy begins to recharge.

Moderate Recharge Delay
This reduces the energy recharge delay by a small margin.

Quick Recharge Delay
This basically allows you to reduce energy recharge delay to as low as possible. If you want to get both this and Peak Recharge Rate, I would recommend getting Peak Recharge Rate first.

Implanted Rebreather

This allows your character to receive less damage from toxic areas and gas grenades at the cost of some energy. Players who like to be careful with their playthrough can leave it entirely.

Chemical Resistance
This automatically prevents from you from gas grenades and toxic areas as long as you have energy to power it up.

Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis

These augmentations allow you to have more inventory space, instant takedowns, toss heavy objects, etc. Depending upon your playstyle, there are multiple augmentations in this line that you can go with.

Punch Through Wall
This allows you to break through damaged walls. However, do note that doing this creates a lot of noise and there is a chance of getting caught.

Instant Takedown
This allows you to instantly knock down or kill almost any target in the game.

Optimized Musculature
This allows you to lift and toss heavy objects which can open up new areas in stealth playthrough.

Carry Capacity: 70 KG
This is your default carrying capacity.

Carry Capacity: 90 KG
As the name suggests, this simply increases your weight carrying capacity.

Carry Capacity: 110 KG
This further increases your weight carrying capacity.

Cybernetic Weapon Handling

This is useless for player going with stealth playthrough. This line of augmentations basically improves recoil, reloading speed, accuracy, and other things like that.

Standard Aim Stability
This is your default accuracy.
