TESLA is an experimental mechanical augmentation introduced in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. When used, it causes a non-lethal electrical discharge on an enemy, stunning and usually incapacitating them, similar to using the Zenith ZAP.

Description Edit

Aug tesla
The Targeted Electrical Discharge System, also known as the TESLA, is capable of firing a 200-milliamp arc of electricity. Useful for incapacitating targets, the high current causes muscular contractions strong enough to clamp down on the heart and prevent full cardiac arrest, leaving the target unconscious but alive.

The TESLA is powered by experimental aluminum graphite nanobatteries houses within the forearm.

Incapacitate targets (human or electronic) with an arc of quiet, high voltage electricity at a range of around a dozen meters.

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

Upgrades Edit

Quick-Fire SystemEdit

Aug quick-fire system
The aug picks out targets with a UV laser emitter. The laser reflection is then captured by onboard UV sensors, making it basically impossible to miss unless there's dense intervening material or some kind of reflective obstruction.

Target one mark with the TESLA.

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

Dual-Arc UpgradeEdit

Aug dual-arc upgrade
The UV lasers can be configured to mark up to two targets by forging ancillary connections between the dual and tertiary electrodes.

An additional capacitor switch housed with the batteries splits the amperes evenly, allowing for two evenly-powered arcs.

Target two marks simultaneously with the TESLA.

  • Upgrade requirement: Quick-Fire System
  • Upgrade cost: 1 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo

Quad-Arc UpgradeEdit

Aug quad-arc upgrade
The UV lasers can be configured to mark up to four targets by forging ancillary connections between a quaternary support system and the dual and tertiary electrodes.

An additional capacitor switch housed with the batteries splits the amperes evenly, allowing for four evenly-powered arcs.

Target four marks simultaneously with the TESLA.

  • Upgrade requirement: Dual-Arc Upgrade
  • Upgrade cost: 1 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo

Arc Distance UpgradeEdit

Aug arc distance upgrade
Upgrading the TESLA's UV laser emitter with a PIN-diode and fusing it with an Ohmic contact will increase the electical [sic] current's stability and density, allowing it to lock on to targets from a greater distance.

Doubles the effective range at which the TESLA can reach targets.

  • Upgrade requirement: Quick-Fire System
  • Upgrade cost: 1 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo

Notes Edit

  • EXO-suits and Viktor Marchenko will merely be stunned for a short duration but won't be knocked out by TESLA unless very weakened first. However, as they'll be left vulnerable for a short time, this gives the player a chance to move in and quickly take them out.
