How to disarm proximity mines
By mxup
Did you know you can disarm them? I was probably half-way the game before I realized. :)
Mine wisdom

in DX:HR you run by default. Crouch AND switch to walk speed (CAPS lock key by default). This way you can approach the proximity mine without triggering it. Simply press the use key to disarm it. Afterwards you can use it yourself!

Thank you! I've played Human Revolution through several times on pc and twice on PS3 and I could not figure this out, even though I had seen it done on youtube. Awesome.

I knew you could walk slow with a gamepad but I didn't know how to do this with a keyboard
