"Multitools are self-configuring nano devices. In the hands of a skilled operator (such as yourself) they can be used to disable technological devices, and even to pick locks."
- description of Multitools, Deus Ex: Invisible War
Multitool is an item used to manipulate electronic locks, high-end nanolocks, security cameras, turrets and other types of electronic security. This model only appeared in Deus Ex: Invisible War.


A all-purpose multitool with a lockpick design. It was created between 2052 and 2072 to replace the standard multitool and the lockpick. It uses nanites for bypassing basic security tech and high-end nanolocks.


A multitool's resources are finite, and when a tool is depleted it becomes useless. You may carry a maximum of 20 of them.

Multitools work with security system elements in a number of ways:

  • Turret - turn it to the "Inactive" state.
  • Electronic control panel - disable or active whatever it was linked to.
  • Keypad - let you open the door without knowing the code or disable laser triggers.
  • Surveillance camera - disable it.
  • Lock - unlock.

A multitool cannot be used for computer information extraction, that falls in to the Neural Interface.
