DXMD trophy Fresh out of the Package

Titan, stylized as TITAN, is an experimental augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Description Edit

A neodymium skin underlay matrix built of nano-meshed rare earth magnets and powered with hook-ins to the Biocell electrical system, the TITAN skin augmentation can be activated at will and then dissipated instantaneously.
The neodymium underlay is installed with a few thousand ampoules of dimorphic magnetorheological fluid (a carbonyl iron mix with a prismatic foam nano-structure). When activated, the fluid is ejected from tiny nozzles installed throughout the skin. Simultaneously, the neodymium underlay electrifies, causing the fluid to solidify and seal the user inside an iron shell, effectively protecting them from all physical damage.
Its high energy consumption can be somewhat reduced by further upgrades.
Negate incoming damage for a short period of time.
Warning: This augmentation is experimental. Unlocking it will add to the Overclock.
  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: high

Upgrades Edit

TITAN update 1

Subcutis Energy Mod Edit

A number of modifications to the subcutaneous power distribution network are required to make the TITAN augmentation work. A separate implant handles these modifications fluidly by tapping into the user's energy system and ensuring a continuous power supply.
Connect the TITAN to the energy system.
  • Upgrade requirement: TITAN
  • Activation cost: N/A
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: high

Facet Cost Reduced Edit

Aug rough transmitter tuning
Shrinking the size of the prisms in the iron foam that makes up the structure of the colloid liquid decreases the per-tick energy required to sustain the shell. The excess energy can then be used to increase the magnetic response of the MR fluid, quickening the development and prolonging the maintenance of the solidification.
Reduce the amount of biocell energy required to sustain the TITAN.
  • Upgrade Requirement: Subcutis Energy Mod
  • Activation cost: 1 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: medium

Facet Cost Optimized Edit

Aug fine transmitter tuning
Reduce energy requirements for the TITAN by activating a series of phasing capacitors installed in the neodymium underlay. These will passively collect energy from the user's ambient EM field and release their charges during nanosecond intervals via the usual biocell dispersion schedule.
Greatly reduce the amount of biocell energy required to sustain the TITAN.
  • Upgrade Requirement: Facet Cost Reduced
  • Activation cost: 1 Praxis
  • Activation: manual
  • Energy consumption: low

TITAN and a big gun.

TITAN grants 100% immunity to all forms of damage, except EMP, electric attacks, and Newton's second law - that is to say, if Adam falls from a great enough height, the presence of a nanotech liquid metal armor skin will simply be ignored, and you'll find Mr. Jensen splattered on the pavement.

To alleviate this, it's not merely recommended, but mandatory, that TITAN users invest in the Icarus Landing System, Implanted Rebreather, and tier three Rhino Dermal Armor.

Like the glass shield cloak, TITAN energy usage vastly increases the faster Adam moves, making it tricky and/or uneconomical to employ for entire battles, albeit possible if you're frugal with your resources. This aug, despite its incredible expenses, synergizes remarkably well with more traditional, gun-centric playstyles, especially those focused on the game's bigger guns, allowing Adam to dominate the opposition uncontested until his batteries deplete, regardless of who - or what - he's fighting.

A further, less obvious benefit of TITAN, is that while it's active, Adam's vision will suffer no further distortion, nor will he react to incoming fire with pained sounds, and the hit markers change from a dark red to solid black.

Also like the glass shield cloak, should Adam make physical, focused contact with a foe (takedowns, for instance), TITAN will be temporarily deactivated, but unlike the glass shield, there are no upgrades to alleviate this limitation.

It is one of few augs that utterly consume the power meter, leaving nothing left for Adam to naturally regenerate. Arguably, this was a deliberate design decision to curb its obvious strengths.


  • Enemies that can be taken down using Jensen's melee takedown command can still be taken down even when their Titan shield is active.
  • The Shadow Operatives of the Vanguard type have a gold-colored TITAN, whereas Jensen has a black-colored TITAN).
  • TITAN cannot run concurrently with GlassShield Cloaking System.
  • The icon for the first upgrade is the same as the icon of the first upgrade of the GlassShield Cloaking System. Their respective descriptions indicate that the power system is different between the two aug systems.
  • Performing takedowns or going into third person view while TITAN is active will show Jensen’s TITAN armor. After very heavy fire and prolonged use, such as taking on the Palisade property bank in a head-on assault, the TITAN shell will show burns, craters, and bullet impacts.
  • TITAN-equipped enemies are still affected by TESLA and stun guns.
  • While TITAN's equipped, and even if Adam received damage prior to activating it, he does not make any pained sounds. Only his heartbeat can be heard.
  • Enemies have dramatically different combat reactions to Adam in his TITAN form.
