{{Quote|A multi-functional explosive with electronic priming system that can either be thrown or attached to any surface with its polyhesive backing and used as a proximity mine.|description of Lightweight Attack Munition (LAM)|Deus Ex}}The '''Lightweight Attack Munition (LAM)''' is a demolition skill weapon in ''Deus Ex''. It is basically a grenade that can double as a proximity mine.


{{Quote|Disarming a proximity device should only be attempted with the proper demolitions training. Trust me on this.

During 2052, the LAM seems to be a widely used explosive world-wide by military, police, and terrorist organizations, having the role of a hand grenade that can double as a proximity mine.

By 2072, the LAM has been widely replaced by two separate explosives: a Concussion grenade (DX2)|concussion grenade (for the grenade role) and a Concussion prox mine|concussion proximity mine (for the mine role) by the various factions of that time period.

==Game unit==
LAMs can be found in the Statue of Liberty, and are uncommon throughout the game. Troops of all types have the ability to use LAMs as grenades, but UNATCO and MJ-12 troops tend to do so more than NSF troops.

The LAM is one of the most versatile weapons in the game. It can be used as a mine, an anti-personnel grenade, a door-breacher and as a robot-destroyer.

As a mine, it should be placed in either areas where enemies are clustered together, or in a tight hallway. The more enemies you can get caught in a blast, the less enemies you'll have to gun down. You can position your opponents a little by allowing or breaking line of sight: they will close if they can't see you and stop to open fire if they can. Placing a LAM at a corner and luring your targets around it will make them blow up as they come around the corner and see you.

As an anti-personnel grenade, it can kill all human enemies in one shot, and severely injure monsters. Remember that you can't prime the LAM, so make sure you have a good chance of hitting your target when you hit the fire key.

As a door-breacher, just throw it near a door that can be blown up. It'll destroy any type of door as long as its strength is not infinite. Remember that enemies can hear the explosion, so be careful.

As a robot-destroyer, it can take out small and medium robots in one hit, and destroy large ones in two. Throwing LAMs at them is the easier way to destroy them, but you can plant them on walls if you have the chance. Using one as a mine will allow you to follow up with a tossed one if it survives the initial LAM.

The LAM is also usable underwater.

===Characters and LAMs===
*A junkie called Lenny in the men's bathroom at Brooklyn Station has got a LAM. He wants to trade it for a vial of zyme.
*The gangster El Ray at Brooklyn Station has got one for sale. The junkies found a whole box of them. If you kill the dealer downstairs you get it for free. If you then kill all of his gang, the Rooks, he will offer you a second one in exchange for his safety. Kill him anyway and a third one can be found on his body.
*Smuggler in Hell's Kitchen has 5 LAMs for sale when you return from Hong Kong. He wants 3500 credits for the set.
*Howard Strong throws LAMs at you when he sees you.

LAMs can be used to climb walls, as they are considered world objects when placed on a wall. To do this, you need at the very least, two LAMs, although it is advisable you carry extras in the event they go off. Place down a LAM on a wall low enough so that you can jump on it, the game's physics engine will allow you to do this with no trouble. Once you on the first LAM, place another so you can jump onto it. After you are on the second LAM, collect your first LAM and repeat the process. Be sure to make sure no NPCs will wander into the area, otherwise, the LAMs might go off.

Alternatively, gas grenades and EMP grenades can be used for this as well.

Using the "Spawnmass 100 weaponlam" cheat will make the game crash due to limitations in the Unreal Engine ''Deus Ex'' is running on.

* There is a real world multi-purpose mine called wikipedia:Selectable Lightweight Attack Munition|SLAM (Selectable Lightweight Attack Munition), that possibly was an inspiration for a LAM.
