Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

There are minor differences between your weaponry in the main story mode and the ones you can access in Breach. Because you must purchase extra ammo in Breach, it’s very smart to have multiple weapons in your inventory. This allows you to exploit one generous aspect of the mode: it always refills your weapons’ magazines after a mission. If you have three weapons and can swap them around, yo...

Cheats and Patches are collectively known as Modifiers; they change the rules of the servers that you’re going into. Cheats make the mission that you’re about to run easier. They’re perfect for Speedruns! Patches make the missions harder, but they grant you bonus points. They’re essential for High Score runs. Build up a supply of Modifiers by opening as many packs as you can afford. Sa...

Most servers have defenses. The enemies that you encounter during Breach have decent weaponry but can’t call in too much backup. Thus, your fights are usually against individuals or small groups. Drones, robots, and turrets augment these forces so that they’re not always easy to overwhelm. Make your life easier by carrying extra ammo of special types so that you can hit nastier targets in ...

Some of the augs are different in Breach. All of these items are available as soon as you have Praxis to spend, and Overclocking isn’t an issue. So, pick the items that you want the most, and beeline for them with your earliest points. Though it’s hard to farm for credits by grinding missions, it is entirely possible to farm for XP. Repeat fast, simple missions to get your character throug...

In Breach, you have a persistent character (not Jensen) who is gaining XP and Praxis. The more missions you run, the more you accrue XP and are able to learn. Just as XP helps you develop your character, credits that you earn lets you purchase Booster Packs with random selections of equipment and consumables. This is at least as important as your set of augmentations because there isn’t any p...

“The Breach” was a catastrophic cyber event that caused a crash in the security systems within the largest and most prestigious secure corporate archiving company in the world, the Palisade Bank Corporation. Their client list is rumored to be a “who’s who” of billionaires, leaders, and enterprises, and it includes the Tai Yong Medical Corporation, The Santeau Group, Picus Communicatio...

Breach is a separate section of the game that lets you act as a hacker to infiltrate the vast data archives of the Palisade Blades. Using many of the concepts that are shown in the primary game, you are able to mix combat and stealth as you try out dozens of repeatable missions. Replayability is quite high in Breach because you have to beat difficult score and time requirements while searching...

Projected Energy Propulsion System (P.E.P.S.) PEPS is a combative augmentation that throws enemies around. Once unlocked, you can also get a focused mode that knocks targets out. Because this creates so much chaos, it’s still in the realm of a combative purchase and should be avoided by stealth players who want to keep Ghost mode and Smooth Operator intact. Knockback Effects: F...

Social Enhancer This line of augmentation is expensive for what it provides. It gives you a HUD for conversations that monitors the target individual, their heart rate, and personality. This makes debates much easier. However, paying a couple points of Praxis for a line that doesn’t help often is rough in the early or mid-game. In addition, our guide tells you the ideal conversation paths du...

It’s time to look through all possible upgrades for your character. We explain in the gameplay area about Overclocking and Praxis Kits to provide a basic understanding of how to unlock and manage these options. Here we focus on what each of these powers does. ...

Silencer Silencers drop weapon damage by a fair amount, but they stop the sound of your attacks from alerting people over a wide area. If you take the time to line up headshots against unarmored foes, this lets you assassinate targets in relative safety. There is still some noise, but it’s not enough to trigger instant alarms unless you’re really close to someone when you fire. You can al...

Alcohol There are several varieties of alcohol in the game, but all of them have a similar effect. These consumables restore health to your character, but leave your vision distorted for a moderate period. Use them when you’re escaping from enemies and don’t need to aim for the next 30 seconds or so. Because you can also boost for maximum health with Alcohol, it’s sometimes useful to dr...

Fragmentation Grenades/Mines Fragmentation Grenades deal heavy damage to everything close to their explosion site. They’re lethal, loud, and are certain to trigger an alert if there’s anyone guarding the area who isn’t 100% dead. To be really mean, use a Mine Template with a Frag Grenade and place it around a corner. Make noise nearby to lure a guard over, then hide as they approach. It...

We know that you’ve been waiting for this! It’s time to get to the cool guns and tools that you find in the game. Even non-lethal players have a few treats to choose from in this chapter!
