EXPERIENCE POINTS

The game awards you with experience points for primary objectives (either 1000, 1750 or 2500 XP), for secondary objectives (either 500 or 750 XP), for mission bonuses (GHOST: 500 XP and SMOOTH OPERATOR: 250 XP), sidequest bonuses (either 100, 300 or 750 XP), as well as combat bonuses, hacking bonuses, exploration bonuses and various other bonuses (see below).

Experience points are used to activate Jensen's dormant augmentations as every 5000 XP points grant a Praxis Kit (used to activate augmentations).
