Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

This subgame lets you break into terminals and laptops. Success allows you to disable security features, turn them against your enemies, find out information, and unlock different routes. Hacking is huge, and that’s why there are so many augmentations devoted to it. Any type of player might be interested in taking extra Hacking augs. It’s never a bad choice. The Basics of Network Intrusion...

Credits let you resupply your ammo and equipment, get upgrades, and improve yourself when you’re in Prague. Money isn’t very useful during your missions away from the city, so make sure to spend well when you’re in town so that you have everything you need later on. Selling Unnecessary Items The number one way to accrue money is to sell items you don’t need at any of the stores around...

You can’t get more augmentations without having Praxis to spend. These points appear when you gain a level (with XP), or when you acquire a Praxis Kit. There are a few kits in specific mission areas. There are also Praxis Kits to purchase in Prague. They cost 10k a piece, and there are limited numbers to buy even if you’re filthy rich. Gain XP quickly in multiple ways. Explore each level a...

Heavy firepower and good shooting win an awful lot of engagements. No matter what some people enjoy, there’s nothing wrong with taking a violent approach to your missions. Given a different set of augmentations, you can make Jensen into a walking tank. He’ll survive massive punishment and give back 10x what he takes. Runs with this style of play are faster by far. You lose some XP on indivi...

It makes the most sense to talk about stealth first. Though never required in the game, stealth is considered by many players to be a more appropriate choice for Jensen. We won’t say that it’s canon or anything like that, but raw combat and lethal play isn’t stressed by the story or the character. Plus, there are substantial XP bonuses for playing with stealth. Once you’ve mastered that...

This is the best time to talk about the challenges and solutions in this game. Levels here aren’t set up in a linear fashion. The developers didn’t say “Here’s the way to beat X problem.” Instead, they’ve created open living spaces where you have a beginning and an end, but everything in between is rather fluid. You can sneak by all of your enemies, defeat them quietly, kill them in...

Health and energy are two of the most important elements of the game. Health keeps you alive, so you can’t afford to lose all of that! Energy maintains any active augmentations you’re using. Some of them drain power over time, and others require a sudden burst of energy. If you are low on health or energy, you’re going to be in serious trouble! How Health Works Health is lost when you f...

Take a look at your screen once you’re in the game. There’s a wealth of information in front of you. Augmentations that are currently equipped on your character appear in the lower-left. The D-Pad on your controller activates a different augmentation for each direction. You can also equip an augmentation to the left shoulder button. This means that you have quick access for up to five augme...

Dubai Because of the constant construction efforts throughout Dubai, this city became a home to many augmented workers in the 2020s. However, “The Incident” hit Dubai even harder than most cities because of their higher Aug population. The city is still digging itself out from the chaos that ensued during that time. G.A.R.M. G.A.R.M. is a research facility in the Swiss Alps. It was inte...

ARC (The Augmented Rights Coalition) ARC was originally a support group for Augs. It began in Europe and is still centered there, in Golem City. It’s led by Talos Rucker, an idealist who is a constant advocate for Aug rights. Some people have accused ARC of supporting terrorism, though the links to that may be false or exaggerated. Church of the Machine God This group, called a cult by so...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has a huge cast of characters. You might be a bit overwhelmed at first, especially if you haven’t played Deus Ex: Human Revolution recently. This chapter goes over the major places and characters so that you know what you’re getting into. Except for introducing the characters, we will not spoil anything in the main story. Adam Jensen The year is 2029, and Jensen...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided continues the story that began with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You return several years after the last game ended and are faced with even worse problems between “Normals” and people who have been augmented. Terrorism between both sides has been on the rise, and even greater threats are starting to appear. The city of Prague is in the middle of this chaos, waiting to...
