This article is about the augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. For the augmentation in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, see Icarus Landing System (DXHR).

Icarus Landing returns as an augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Unlike many other augmentations from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this one appears to have not been changed at all except for the icons and slight name change.

Description Edit

Icarus-landing
Essentially safety device, the Icarus Landing System is an automatically-triggered augmentation that allows users to drop from extreme heights without incurring physical damage.

The device has an accelerative descent sensor built in; in free-fall, the unit automatically generates a fixed-focus electromagnetic lensing field. This field magnifies the Earth's ambient magnetosphere and produces a reciprocal effect, gently pushing upwards against the user. This slows the user's fall and facilitates a smooth landing.

The magnetic field can also be modulated manually to channel a portion of the energy produced by the EMF generator into a localized shockwave centered on the landing surface. This shockwave generates enough concussive force to incapacitate nearby enemies. It also generates a great deal of noise and will alert nearby personnel.

Prevent damage when falling from any height.

  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis
  • Activation: passive
  • Energy consumption: none

Upgrades Edit

Descent Velocity Modulator Edit

Descent Velocity Modulator
Upon detection of dangerous downward g-forces, the High-Fall Safeguard System automatically generates a fixed-focus electromagnetic lensing field, projected downward along the plane of the drop, to allow for a safe landing. When engaged, the Icarus Strike finishes the landing by pulsing the electromagnetic field outwards from the landing zone, which can result in a loss of consciousness for nearby individuals.

Slow the rate of descent when falling from a great height.

Includes the Icarus Strike ability that can incapacitate enemies and displaces objects on the ground when landing.

  • Upgrade requirement: Icarus Landing
