Augmentations in The Ascent are active abilities that can be purchased from Vendors. In The Ascent, by default, players can equip two Augmentations and two Modules, and having these cyberware items allows you to have extra bonuses and combat mechanics such as the ability to throw out a Hydraulic Slam, an effect that automatically collects loot for you, or improves the accuracy of locking onto a target.

Augmentations can be obtained as rewards, loot, and are pruchased from merchants. This page will indicate a list of all the Augmentations and Modules in The Ascent, which will also include its description and values. You can find detailed information on its location and properties on each individual page linked below.

Augmentation Abilities

Execute augmentation abilities with Q & E. Augmentations deplete energy (EN) on use but energy regenerates slowly over time.

Some abilities automatically targets enemies in reach and signals this with a marker on the target itself. Furthermore, some of these cannot be executed unless there's a target acquired.



Attributes is the base of high level functionality of your enhanced body. It drives the efficiency of your installed augmentation abilities.
