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

Typhoon returns as an augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Unlike the original version in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this version has an option to be set to non-lethal, allowing pacifist players to use it.

Description Edit

MD-typhoon
The Typhoon Explosive System is a series of interlinked and electromagnetic launchers installed throughout the body and connected to a target processor installed at the base of the user's spine.

When activated, the launchers simultaneously eject a volley of liquid crystal elastomer projectiles in a targeted 360-degree arc. The projectiles can be configured either to a lethal explosive or a non-lethal concussive blast.

Unleash a 360-degree burst of projectiles. Requires special ammunition.

  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo (typhoon ammo)

Upgrades Edit

Munition Loadout Selection

Munition Loadout Selection Edit

While the Typhoon can be armed with lethal or non-lethal rounds, only one configuration can be integrated into the user's system.

This selection can only be made once.

Determines the type of ballistics the Typhoon can fire.

Stun Configuration Edit

The liquid crystal elastomer projectiles vaporize on firing, emitting a wave of concussive-stunning gas. The resulting gas cloud incapacitates organic targets without killing them.

NOTE: Once you have selected the Stun Configuration, the Lethal Configuration will no longer be available.

Rig the Typhoon to emit a non-lethal, stunning blast.

  • Upgrade requirement: Typhoon
  • Activation cost: N/A
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo (typhoon ammo)

Lethal Configuration Edit

The liquid crystal elastomer projectiles are filled with pentaerythritol tetranitrate, causing them to explode and inflict maximum damage.

NOTE: Once you have selected the Lethal Configuration, the Stun Configuration will no longer be available.

Rig the Typhoon to deliver lethal damage.

  • Upgrade requirement: Typhoon
  • Activation cost: N/A
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: ammo (typhoon ammo)

Background Edit

After the Aug Incident, TYM purchased the failing Sarif Industries, including their patent for the Typhoon. Several Typhoon prototypes (among other prototype military augs designed by Sarif Industries) remained at the manufacturing plant and were stolen by members of the Motor City Bangers (MCB). Adam Jensen, with forced assistance by members of Task Force 29, managed to stop the MCB members from sending the augments off to be sold on the black market. Later, a clandestine team working for the Illuminati attempted to steal them while they were being transported via train by TF29. Jensen, once again with help from TF29, managed to crash the train and destroy the prototypes, preventing their capture and distribution. By 2029, a non-lethal variation that dissolves the liquid crystal elastomer into a powerful tranquilizing gas and explodes with non-lethal force, had been developed and installed into Jensen (allowing him to choose between the lethal or non-lethal versions).[1][2]

Notes Edit

  • At the start of a new game, Jensen's Typhoon augmentation will be set to fire either lethal or non-lethal projectiles depending on whether the player chooses the "lethal" or "non-lethal" dialogue option prior to the first mission, first mission, M1: Black Market Buy.
  • After completing M3: Getting in Top Shape Again, if the player chooses to re-enable the Typhoon augmentation, the player may also choose between setting it to fire lethal or non-lethal projectiles. This choice is permanent and cannot be reset, even with a New Game+. Only starting a fresh playthrough can the player choose the other setting.
  • All of Adam Jensen's trench coats are designed with ports that magnetically attach to his Typhoon launchers, allowing him to fire it while wearing them.
    • When he is undercover as an inmate in A Criminal Past, he keeps his sleeves rolled up to keep his Typhoon uncovered. This is except for the ports on his upper arms, although they are still able to fire unhindered. This is likely a developer oversight.
