This article is about the augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. For the augmentation in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, see Quicksilver Reflex Booster (DXHR).

Quicksilver Reflex Booster returns as an augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Just like in the previous game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, activating this augmentation will allow Adam Jensen to perform multiple takedowns on two targets if they're close enough together.

Description Edit

The Quicksilver Reflex Booster is essentially a supercharger for the human nervous system.
The Booster works by activating the "attention" button in the parasympathetic nervous system. While activating the vagus nerve, burst of norepinephrine and acetylcholine flood the motor cortex and enabled rapid learning and re-learning, along with increased bursts of mental focus.
This enables military personnel, athletes, and physical performers to execute quicker, more impressive feats of strength and dexterity.
Perform more coordinated feats of strength and dexterity.
  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis

Multiple Takedown DXMD

Multiple Takedown Edit

When supported by the Eye Know Retinal Prosthesis, the Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis, and the Quicksilver Reflex Booster, the Palaestra software upgrade supports the user during attempts to physically overpower two adversaries simultaneously.
Body-tracking software in the module ties closely to the Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis, allowing the user to plan highly complex and precise physical acts, and carry them off with near 100% accuracy.
Perform takedowns on two adjacent adversaries simultaneously.

Notes Edit

  • Guards don't commonly patrol in pairs, or stand around corridors waiting for you to use it, making it more of an offensive tool than a 'must have.' Realistically, Adam must setup ambushes and/or attack from the front to effectively use this aug.
  • Despite saying multiple, Jensen can only do a double takedown. Therefore, the title Double Takedown may sound more appropriate.
  • "Quicksilver" is a trivial/common name of the element Mercury, which in turn was named after the Roman god Mercury, known for his speed and mobility.
  • Most cutscenes jump directly to takedown middle to final part; skipping how Jensen begins.
  • A palaestra was the site of ancient Greek wrestling schools. Events requiring little space, such as boxing and wrestling, were practised there.
