Our Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Hacking Guide details everything that you need to know about hacking in the game.

Basics of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Hacking

In order to begin hacking, you simply need to interact with a computer or a terminal. Once begin, you will need to click on a node and start the hacking process.

Do keep in mind the level of the node – a higher level node means it is more time consuming and has more probability of notifying AI.

Once you have successfully captured a node, it will change its color and you will be allowed to move to other nodes connected to the one you captured – do keep in mind the direction of the arrow though.

If a node has directional arrow in opposite direction to your node, you must capture it from the other side. You basically need to continue doing it until you have captured all green nodes in a system.

If you, however, fail to complete a hack, the AI will be notified who will force you out of the system –using a trace – after a timer visible on the screen. Do note that if you are forced out of a system, you will not receive any XP or other rewards.

After that, an alarm will be triggered and you will not be able to hack into the system again for a short duration – this usually lasts for a minute or so.

There is also a way to stop the trace and that is to capture all green nodes before the timer runs out and you are forced out of the system. In order to further ease this process, you can fortify your already captured nodes. However, you should not do so until you know for sure that AI will start a trace.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Advanced Hacking Tips

When it comes to high level hacking, you should basically try and capture multiple nodes at the same time. In addition to this, you should also try to fortify the captured nodes as soon as possible.

Doing so will not only save you time, but will also allow you move to subsequent nodes without wasting as less time as possible. On top of that, this is also fairly useful for players who do not want to invest too much into hacking in terms of augmentations.

Last but not the least, you need to double check your position when it comes to hacking. You will often find yourself getting attacked by guards while you are hacking a security terminal. Due to this fact, you basically need to get to secure place, take care of anyone inside the area, shut down doors and windows, and then begin your hacking attempts.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Hacking Software

When it comes to hacking, there are a handful of software that can help you out in the game. These in-game software cannot only help you defeat a network even after a trace has started, but also allow you to reveal hidden nodes and other things.

  • Stealth Software – Allows you to bypass capture and prevents AI detection
