Deus Ex Wiki
Silencer (DXMD)

The NS-X20 Silencer is a weapon attachment in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Silencers are the most common weapon attachments found in the game.


The NS-X20 is an aluminium-titanium sound suppressor that is easily adaptable to almost any firearm, installed in seconds, it fits snugly over the barrel of a weapon to ensure that, when the gun is fired, most of the sound is muted. Reports are audible only within a very close range. The attachment is compatible with most firearms on the market.


The silencer suppresses the sound of gunfire, enabling the player to more easily avoid detection. Enemies standing too close to the player or the shots' impact zone will still get suspicious, however. Silenced weapons can also be used for destroying disabled cameras and destructible doors without attracting attention.

Compatible weapons[]

In addition to being attachment onto the above weapons, silencers are included with the Stun Gun, Tranquilizer Rifle, Elite Edition Tranquilizer Rifle, and Côte d'Azur.

Effect on damage, accuracy, and recoil[]

Attaching a silencer to a weapon reduces its damage output. The in-game inventory interface will display the damage penalties listed above. However, the in-game damage attribute is known to be inaccurate. Actual effects on damage have been observed to approximately -25% damage for the Pistol (including elite edition), Combat Rifle (including elite edition), and Tactical Shotgun; -47% damage for the Machine Pistol; and -55% damage for the Lancer Rifle.[1]

In addition to lowering weapon damage, the silencer also slightly increases accuracy and slightly decreases recoil.
