In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Adam Jensen has several mechanical augmentations implanted in his body to save his life after he is almost killed by Jaron Namir during an attack on Sarif Industries.

Unlike in previous games, nano-augmentations are not used since they have not advanced to a sufficient level yet. Most of the augmentations remain inactive until Jensen has mentally healed and adapted to them or upgrade software is installed.

These augmentations are installed into slots in various parts of the body. The choice is permanent, so once the augmentation is activated, it cannot be undone for the remainder of the game. Unlike previous iterations, players are not required to find specific items for specific augmentation slots; you may activate any augmentation at any time so long as you have the required Praxis points.

The augmentation menu is divided between body parts: Head, Eyes, Torso, Arms, Back, Skin and Legs.

Below is a list of the augmentations and their functions:

Typhoon Explosive SystemEdit

Typhoon

Info: In effect, the Typhoon augmentation turns its user into a human fragmentation grenade, placing him or her at the center of a blast radius that inflicts a ranged sphere of damage on surrounding targets, in all directions, without focus or aim. Every detonation requires the expenditure of one ammo pack and one energy cell.

The Typhoon is an anti-personnel weapon implanted in a series of subdermal pads along the back of the user's arms, upper legs, and torso; the pads are loaded with a matrix of small (10mm) stainless steel ball bearings above a thin layer of fixed-focus electromagnetic repulsion field generators.

On activation, the implant releases the ball bearings in an optimal 360° shrapnel shockwave cloud that inflicts severe damage on unarmored targets at close range, and an additional blowback effect on middle-distant targets.

Activation Cost: 2 Praxis Points

BackEdit

Icarus Landing SystemEdit

Landingsystem

Info: The Icarus Landing System is a discreet augmentation surgically implanted in the user's lower back, slightly above the coccyx at the base of the vertebral column. The device has an accelerative descent sensor built in; in freefall, the unit will automatically activate the patented High-Fall Safeguard System, an EMF decelerator generating a fixed-focus electromagnetic lensing field, projected downward along the plane of the drop. This field pushes against the Earth's magnetosphere and slows the user's descent to a manageable velocity, allowing him to fall from almost any height (within reason).

Activation Cost: 2 Praxis Points

Note: The Icarus Landing System animation requires a fairly significant fall to trigger; however, the augmentation's actual gameplay effect is to completely disable fall damage, regardless of whether the animation plays or not.

Descent Velocity ModulatorEdit

  • Upgrade Requirement: Icarus Landing System
  • Upgrade Cost: N/A
  • Use: Fall from any height without fear of injury.
  • Activation: Automatic. To stun nearby targets upon landing, press the "fire" button while falling.
  • Energy Consumption: None
  • Info: Essentially a safety device to prevent death or serious injury when falling from extreme heights, the Icarus Landing System is an automatically-triggered augmentation that allows users to drop from heights above 10 meters (32 feet) without incurring physical damage. As a side-effect, falling directly on to an enemy combatant will result in a knock-down, knock-out attack, while striking a light object will displace it.

Quicksilver Reflex BoosterEdit

Reflexbooster

Info: The Quicksilver Reflex Booster is essentially a supercharger for the human nervous system, boosting reflex speed and the firing of nerve clusters throughout the body. The direct effect of this means that the user is capable of reacting far faster than a 'normal' person in a dangerous situation, enabling him or her to move quickly with split focus to engage more than one adversary.

The Quicksilver Reflex Booster is a decentralized augmentation connected to nerve bundles in the legs, to a distributed set of disc implants in the spinal column, and to other elements of the body's vestibular system (which controls balance and agility).

Working in concert, these elements send and receive digital pressure signals to a series of implanted integrated circuits, granting increased agility and corporeal control.

Activation Cost: 2 Praxis Points

SkinEdit

Glass-Shield Cloaking SystemEdit

Cloakingsystem

Info: When activated, the GlassShield Cloaking System augmentation bends the light hitting the user, rendering him practically invisible. The effect will work on any wavelength that is part of the visual spectrum, including laser beams.

The GlassShield Cloaking System is composed of a grid of fine induction wires connected to a deep-tissue control implant (typically located in the back or ribcage) which, in turn, is linked to the brain. The matrix can be layered directly beneath the surface of the epidermis or over the plating of cybernetic limbs; when activated, it generates a tuned, fixed-focus electromagnetic field that temporarily adjusts the frequency of EM radiation around the user. The net effect is a 'cloak of invisibility' which appears near-perfect.

Dermal ArmorEdit

Dermalarmor

Info: Essentially a technologically-advanced version of implanted body armor, this augmentation is able to reduce inflicted damage effects from blunt trauma, ballistic attacks, cutting, and/or slashing attacks. Secondary functionality also provides protection from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) assault.

However, Dermal Armor cannot reduce damage effects from airborne contaminants such as gas, environmental effects (radiation, toxins and poisons), or falling trauma.

Rhino Dermal Armor is a supple, micro-thin material implanted beneath the epidermis in key areas of the body, as well as over the surface of pre-existing cybernetic limbs. The structure of the plating is a phased composite; the base is a microfiber weave made from carbon nanotubes suspended in a dilatant (or shear-thickening) fluid. When kinetic energy from a physical blow or a weapon discharge strikes the plating, the fluid becomes rigid, deflecting the impact shock. Heat and electromagnetically-conductive elements in the armor matrix serve to dissipate damage from fire-related or energized trauma.

LegsEdit

Cybernetic Leg ProsthesisEdit

Cyberlegprosthesis

Info: The Cybernetic Leg Prosthesis replaces a person's organic limbs with enhanced-function mechanical substitutes. On a basic level, these grant the user the ability to reach greater heights while jumping. Additional functionalities, including enhanced jump range, greater sprint speed, and the ability to move without audible detection, become possible as familiarity with the augmentation increases.

The Hermes 2027 Cybernetic Leg Prosthesis is an augmented artificial limb built on a framework of advanced polymers and lightweight metals. In place of an organic musculature, these augmentations utilize 'myomers'-bunches of electro-stimulated plastic cables that mimic the actions of muscle tissues, but to a greatly strengthened degree. In combination with tiny motors and shock-absorbing liquid polymer buffers, these cyberlimbs are capable of far exceeding human physical attributes.
