Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Deus Ex stands roughly 4 stories tall, if not more. It has brown skin, a demon head, a cybernetic left leg, a cybernetic right hand, an arm-mounted rocket launcher in place of its left arm and some other cybernetic implants.
It is highly durable except for its head, where it can be killed relatively easily with five shots to the head from the TRK A.D, three or four from the 444 Bear killer or a number of shots from the B.O.S.C.O. An effective, yet dangerous, way to kill a Deus Ex is to use a sword to backstab it, which, like it does with every other enemy, will kill it instantly. Despite its large size and strength, it can be easily killed using the Dragon's Breath PSI ability, often allowing for travel across the map over long distances with an easy target to spot.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The Deus Ex design was seemingly inspired by the Cyberdemon from the 1993 science fiction and horror series Doom.
- The name "Deus Ex" is a reference to the latin phrase "Deux Ex Machina", referring to a plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly solved with the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability, or object. The phrase translates to "God from the Machine", which taken more literally could be an implication of attaining divine levels of power through technology, a central theme to E.Y.E which is perverted and twisted in the form of the Deus Ex. It was given this name by the Feds for its ability to quickly turn the tide of a battle.
