Check back often for updates to our list of hidden praxis kit locations.

  1. Sarif Manufacturing Lab: As you exit the Assembly Line, you’ll reach the Factoring Labs with an elevator. Exiting the elevator, ahead you’ll find your first Praxis Kit in the hallway.
  2. Detroit City Sewers: In the Derelict Row sewers, in the eastern corner, in a dead-end south of a sewer entrance, you’ll find a light wall. Break down the light wall with augmented strength, or just some old-fashioned firepower.
  3. Detroit City Apartments: Enter the apartment building behind a locked gate down the alley behind the gun-runner’s abandoned gas station. Inside the apartment building, move to the second floor and break into the apartment with a level 5 lock, use the code “2356″ to get in. Hack into the bedroom, you can use the code “8221″, and use the keypad into the cage, you can hack that or use the code “3663″ taken from the computer terminal nearby. Inside the cage, look to the shelves to your left. That’s where you’ll find the hidden Praxis Kit.
  4. Detroit LIMB Clinic: Two Praxis Kits can be bought here for 5,000 credits each. On the second visit to Detroit, the Praxis Kits will be restocked. A Doctor inside will also reward you with a Praxis Kit for completing his sidequest in the second visit to Detroit.
  5. Hengsha LIMB Clinic: Like in Detroit, you can purchase two Praxis Kits here for 5,000 credits each. During the second visit, the Clinic will restock. Also, just like in the Detroit LIMB Clinic, talk to a doctor inside and complete his sidequest for a Praxis Kit reward.
  6. Hengsha City Streets: On your first visit, as Jensen moves to speak with the hacker in Alice Garden Pods, your pilot Malik will find you. Complete her side-quest for a Praxis Kit.
  7. Hengsha Sewers: Underneath the city, look for a ‘U’ section of sewers below the Huang Hua Hotel. You’ll need to be able to break through a light wall in the sewer to find the Praxit Kit with some pain killer.
  8. The Hive: Complete the Bartender, Bobby Bao’s, sidequest to get your hands on a Praxis Kit. For the more violent option, kill or stun him and search his body to get the kit.
  9. Hengsha: Complete Malik’s sidequest and you’ll be rewarded with a Praxis Kit.
  10. Hengsha Court Gardens: Sneak into the elevator shaft, instead of climbing up, climb down to the bottom of the shaft and look underneath the elevator to find another Praxis Kit on the floor.
  11. Tai Yong Medical: On the second floor of the actual Tai Yong building, after entering the Lee Geng lab, move up to the second floor. Before continuing to the third floor, turn left and take a hallway, through a door, into another corridor where there are two offices. Enter the first office, or enter the second office and return to the first through the connecting door, to find a Praxis Kit in the south-western corner.
  12. Picus: As you enter the news building, reaching the main office floor, you’ll see the place is empty. Run down to the cubicles, down the center row and check the center-left desks for an easy Praxis Kit.
  13. Detroit City Apartment: Enter the apartment building across from the Chiron Building and move up to the third floor to find a Praxis Kit near a dead body – watch out, there’s an EMP mine hidden under the body, set it off first. You’ll find this one naturally while completing a main quest during your second visit to the Detroit Hub.
  14. Panchea: Deep inside the chaos of Panchea, you can find a LIMB Clinic behind a barricade of vending machines. Move them or destroy them to get inside the Clinic, where you can purchase two Praxis Kits for the standard price of 5,000 credits each.

More to come!

wooooo! thank you! thank you! thank you!

1 more location, In O’Malley’s apartment building, on one of the upper floors, there is an apartment protected by a level 5 security system. You can either hack to get in, or blow up the door. This is a chop shop of sorts for augmentations.

Inside there is a cage that is protected by a level 5 security system, inside the cage there is a praxis kit and other goodies. You can either hack the cage if your level is high enough, or just hack the lower level computer to get the code for the cage.

I can’t seem to find the Detroit Sewer one, I only found some guns and ammos but no praxis kit.

You dont need to waste a point on punching through walls, granted, it does make finding them easier. But, if you shoot them enough they crumble too.


On August 26, 2011 at 1:03 pm

The praxis kit you have listed number two is in the Detroit sewers, but it’s not near the Chiron building. The sewers near the Chiron / Police HQ has 2 weak walls and behind them are mostly guns. There is no praxis kit in either ‘secret’ location (which aren’t so secret once you get the punch through the walls aug).

If you want to get the praxis kit behind the weak wall, then you have to go to the sewers in the northern quadrant near Derelict Row. Poke around and you’ll find it pretty quickly. Punch, and grab. And while you’re there, if you know where to get the rocket launcher— there is one in the area if you’re willing to do some hunting around— you can use it to get into O’malley’s apartment. Blow his first and second doors open, then hack the level 1 computer to open the ammo cage.

If you take out the bartender in the Hive, you can pick up a praxis kit off of him


On August 27, 2011 at 9:20 pm

Not really in Derelict Row. Close. You find this only when you have come back after going to China. It’s impossible to miss. You are going after Sandoval and when you enter his apartment apartment there’s a dead body and a praxis kit lying right there.


On August 27, 2011 at 9:33 pm

Just to let everyone know, you can get 2 praxis kits at Detroit’s limb clinic when you start. You need 5k for each. Then when you go to China you can spend another 10k. Then when you go back to Detroit the Limb clinic there respawns the kits a little while after you’ve done some questing. I was able to get in after my version of Adam saved the police HQ from being bombed, but not before.

So, if you’re smart, you’ll gather up the credits and take at least 25k out of Detroit the first time. That way you can get the 2 in China on arrival, pay for a third one in The Hive night club, and 2 more in Detroit when you come back. Getting credits by trading in shotguns and pistol machine guns earlier in the game lets you rack up the amount pretty quick. If you don’t know how to get the one in The Hive, here’s a hint. Be generous to women in trouble with gangs.


On August 28, 2011 at 12:21 pm

All of deusfun’s info is good. I’d just like to add, though, that the bartender in the Hive will give you a Praxis kit as a reward for his quest even if you don’t pay him the 5k; paying him that just gets you an achievement. The only time he won’t give you a Praxis kit is if you return the augmentation to him. (You’ll know what I mean when you get the quest.)


On August 28, 2011 at 9:14 pm

Deusfun, you’re the best. Thanks man. :D


On August 29, 2011 at 3:06 pm

There is one in Hive- Kill bartender in 1st floor and search him.

That kit on the Sandoval mission, you all should know, is a booby trap. Pick it up and you’ll get EMP’d and attacked by Purity soldiers.


On August 30, 2011 at 1:31 pm

you can get two more kits when your in panchea when you hear bill tagart’s help message there will be a hallway to your left and at the end there is a door way blocked with stuff, in there is a sort of limb clinic where you can buy 2 more praxis kits


On August 30, 2011 at 6:26 pm

@Sandoval Praxis Kit:

Yes, booby trapped. Workaround: move the dead corpse next to it, and take the EMP mines first!


On August 31, 2011 at 2:55 am

Why does everyone forget that farida’s sidequest(you meet her in pod gardens on story mission) gives you a praxis?


On August 31, 2011 at 10:36 pm

detroit downtown apts ( the leftmost apt buildng) 2nd floor(not sure if it’s here on the 2nd time to detroit or 1st, but you need level 5 hacking, and it’s in a room with 3 level 5 doors to hack, and inside a cage, there is a praxis point. I am missing a total of 16 points…to upgrade everything… Still looking. .. Considering I didn’t use a guide or anything except this little blog, that’s not so bad


On September 1, 2011 at 11:14 am

The code “3663″ in the Detroit City Apartment is not working for me.

Kevin Thielenhaus

On September 1, 2011 at 11:38 am

Hey Arnaud,

Make sure you only use the code “3663″ on the security panel to get inside the cage. To get into the apartment, try the code “2356″, to get inside the bedroom in the back, try the code “8221″. Hope that helps.


On September 2, 2011 at 11:57 am

screw the code, get yourself good hacks and tear that up and get some exp and STOP worms and NUKE viruss… I rarely used the codes when I had them, that’s prob why I am only missing 8 praxis points now… I keep finding them/earning them for being a smooth operator lol


On September 2, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Mengde, thanks for the info and the shout out. I only played it through once before posting about the bartender @ The Hive. The second time through I paid him to leave the girl alone, then i shot all the guards dead, shot him in the head, and took my 5k right back. The characters that you pay retain those credit payments. So you can pop them and then take your payment right back, making the price for information or a praxis kit free.


On September 2, 2011 at 4:00 pm

dHATZ, nobody is forgetting the praxis kit you get from the pilot for solving the murder of her friend. You run into this sidequest no matter what so getting that kit isn’t really hidden, secret or very hard. At any rate, you have fingers. Why didn’t you post it if you thought we were in remiss?


On September 2, 2011 at 7:19 pm

There is another praxis kit locate in the Hengsha Youzhao district. When you get to the building and cant get in the front go around to the alley and climb the ladder. Go into the vent, and then down the ladders to the bottom of the elevator shaft and there’s another praxis kit.


On September 4, 2011 at 4:37 pm

The Praxis you have listed as being in the Tai Yong Tower (claim of second floor of tower). The info you provide is for the security office. IN that office (besides the fact you can turn off the annoying security from the console. IF you wanted to avoid doing that the “gold item” you indicate on your post and video?…its an access card of one of the senior scientists which will allow the guard at the door to let you through without having tohack or sneak. It’s merely there for those nonhacker types I suppose.

*ps you would discover the existance of this particular access card by the finding of a email to the woman from her workstation found nearby, stating that security is holding it int he office for her.


On September 4, 2011 at 4:41 pm

I just felt it was necessary so people didn’t accidentally assume the gold item was an immediate praxis bonus (inc ase they don’t notice the lack of a +1 Praxis popup). I had discovered this Praxis beforehand but I just felt the description was lacking since it describes the entryt o Security (past the two guards) and lacks any descriptors for the actual lab area. The video is good though so rather than ramble, you folks can check that out.

There is also and 1 hidden praxis at elevator shaft in Hengsha when u 1st go there to kill/knock the Mei’s pimp.


On September 8, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Hey, I just found a praxis kit in a drawer under a computer-desk on the second floor of the lee gang memorial lab!


On September 12, 2011 at 2:54 pm

For the booby trapped kit on the Sandoval mission, you pick up the fridge and put on top of the corpse, you can then pick the kit up with no troubles.


On September 23, 2011 at 8:53 pm

Just found one after opening the hangar bay after the Zhao fight. 2 elevated offices. One has the hanger door controls, the other has a Praxis kit on the desk.

Good luck!


On October 10, 2011 at 7:12 am

The praxis kit behind the wall in the Derelict Row Sewers is still there on your second visit to Detroit. If you’re playing non-lethal and don’t want to mess with the DRB guys past the barricade, wait until after you talk to Sandoval. You can grab it then without having to take anyone out.


On October 11, 2011 at 11:06 pm

When are you going to update this?


On October 23, 2011 at 12:49 pm

In my game the praxis kit in the Tai Yong hangar isn’t there, I just have an eBook instead.


On November 8, 2011 at 2:17 am

there is one in hengsha

when you cruise the shafts and you come to some elevator shaft just go all way down and you will find it, you just can´t miss it …

i found it when i was collecting money for that waiter and had to go the second time to the same building guarded by cops (where you find hackers room)so i was cruising some other shafts on my way out and baaam :)


On August 2, 2012 at 9:10 am

Performed anyone actually simply just do a comparison of all the large involving tens of millions in order toing painting a perception? Most beneficial become trollin’ kid.


On January 13, 2014 at 4:30 am

There is one hidden praxis kit on HEI ZHEN ZHU in the docking area just prior to your escape to Rifleman Bank Station. You’ll see stairs on one cargo container and after some climbing you’ll need the high jump augment to jump over an empty space between containers and make it inside an opened one on the other end. And there’s a briefcase containing a praxis kit.
