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

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!

There seems to be a few haters in the comments of this guide. Approaching the proxy from a crouch DOES NOT stop it from exploding. It seems that you have to have Auto-run turned off in order for your crouch to avoid detonating. There is a minute change in your crouch-movement-speed when you have auto-run on or off, which is odd because most games just have a single speed for crouch regardless of how you're moving when standing--the first Deus Ex included.

The predecessor gave you a brief slice of time in which you could deactivate and collect the LAM before it exploded. The sequel only lets you do so when you're in the slower form of crouch-movement. This is counter intuitive and thus your guide is extremely helpful

I used a well thrown chair to disarm them...

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.

Didn't the game tell you this?

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