Deus Ex Mankind Divided Experimental Augments: Which Augs Should You Permanently Disable?

By on
Deus Ex Mankind Divided DLC

Yesterday, we introduced you to Vaclav Koller, the underground augmentation wiz that gets Adam Jensen up and running at the start of Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Upon meeting him, you?ll also be put on the path toward unlocking Jensen?s full potential. Some mild spoilers follow, so turn away now if you must.

Unlock Your Full Power In Deus Ex Mankind Divided

In Deus Ex Mankind Divided, you?ll notice that Jensen has several ?experimental augmentations? installed in his body. To use one of them, you?ll have to deactivate one of your regular augments. What most players don?t realize at first is you can?t flip between regular and experimental augs on the fly. Once you power down a basic augmentation, it will stay disabled for a good part of the game.

Luckily, our new friend Koller holds the key to bypassing this system, letting you use all your augmentations at once. After meeting him, he should offer you a quest to hunt down an item called a ?Neuroplasticity Calibrator.? Accept it to begin the quest line that will eventually lead to the unlocking of Jensen?s full power. Declining Koller?s offer will lock you out of this option, making any augs you deactivate permanent for the rest of your playthrough.

However, keep in mind that this quest chain concludes well into the second half of the game, so make sure you can live without whatever augs you?ve disabled until then.

As for which augs to switch off, that really is all up to you. Like any Deus Ex game, Mankind Divided is all about player freedom, so go with what suits your playstyle best. Of all the experimental augs, remote hacking is definitely the one you want to prioritize first in Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Having it opens up a multitude of new options you wouldn?t have had otherwise, so we definitely recommend picking it up ASAP.
