Nanoblade is now an upgradable augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Unlike in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Adam Jensen can now fire his nanoblades as a projectile, useful for killing enemies from afar, causing distractions, or even explosions.

Description Edit

Aug nanoblade
The Nanoblade is an attachment mounted on a Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis and is concealed unless deployed. It is most often wielded as a melee weapon, but may also be used as a projectile.

The augmentation upgrades the blade forearm sheath to include a launcher apparatus that can eject the blade. It also includes a high-energy molecular assembler that, with the proper supply of silicon-carbide cartridges, rapidly fashions a replacement lamellar graphite blade and affixes it to the sheath, ready for melee or ranged combat.

Fire the nanoblade as a projectile.

Warning: This augmentation is experimental. Unlocking it will add to the Overclock.

  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo (Nano-Blade Ammo)

Upgrades Edit

Impact Velocity Shot Edit

Aug impact velocity shot

The signature square blade is tweaked to be ejected, essentially becoming a heavy crossbow lodged in the forearm. When fired, it has enough velocity to fatally wound and launch a victim airborne.

If near any walls or other solid objects, the target may be both impaled and pinned to the surface.

Fire the Nanoblade as a projectile which can pin targets. Blades have limited tracking capabilities, and try their best to angle towards the target's head and shoulders.

  • Upgrade requirement: Nanoblade
  • Upgrade cost: N/A
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo

Explosive Heat Blade Edit

Aug explosive heat blade
The Nanoblade can be upgraded with a small amount of liquid explosive nestled between plates within the lamellar graphite blade. A chemical reaction begins when the blade is heated, and ends when it strikes a surface with sufficient force. The blade then shatters into several smaller fragments, fatally wounding living entities within its area of effect.

Charge the Nanoblade to heat it into an explosive variant. Bursts into smaller shards over time. It's not recommended to stand anywhere near the impact zone; a full blast will shave off 120+ HP, even with tier 3 rhino armor.
