Microfibral Muscle.png

Microfibral Muscle is an arms slot augmentation in Deus Ex. It is a nanotechnological augmentation that allows JC Denton to lift or push objects that are normally too heavy for him to do so.

This augmentation is installed from the augmentation canister that also includes Combat Strength. Since there is only one arms slot and only one copy of the canister, Combat Strength and Microfibral Muscle are mutually exclusive options.

Description[edit | edit source]

Muscle strength is amplified with ionic polymeric gel myofibrils that allow the agent to push and lift extraordinarily heavy objects.

  • TECH ONE: Strength is increased slightly.
  • TECH TWO: Strength is increased moderately.
  • TECH THREE: Strength is increased significantly.
  • TECH FOUR: An agent is inhumanly strong.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Microfibral Muscle is an active augmentation that consumes 20 units of bioenergy per minute.

When activated, this augmentation increases the "max lift" stat, which is the maximum mass of objects that the player can lift.[1] The maximum mass of an object that can be pushed is the max lift plus 50.


Max Lift

(Not activated) 50 Can lift the small metal crate and push (but not lift) the medium metal crate
Tech 1 100 Can lift the medium metal crate and push (but not lift) the large metal crate
Tech 2 150 Can lift the large metal crate
Tech 3 200
Tech 4 300

Moving heavy objects can provide access to previously unreachable locations. This can be done by either moving the object from a passage it is obstructing or by climbing on it to reach a height.
