I'm pretty sure the non-lethal bonus is 20. Even if it is 50 though, or 100, or whatever... you don't need more XP than you will get playing whatever way you desire. In my balls to the wall guns playthrough I still had tons of extra praxis without much to spend it on toward the end of the game. Just play how you want.

There were just a lot of balancing issues in general with the XP. In an RPG, all paths should be equally viable. In DX, the most effective path is to hack everything and perform stealthy, non-lethal takedowns. This will net you more XP than any other approach. Do you need all that XP? Nope, especially not when you can buy two Praxis Kits at each LIMB clinic. I think they should have done what the original DX did and only rewarded XP for completing objectives and exploring. That way, every approach is equally viable. Also, they shouldn't have sold any Praxis Kits and credits in general should have been much harder to obtain.

Also some of the upgrades are just minor convieneince things, sure, but can't that be said of almost any progression system? Cloak and armor and recoil reduction and all that stuff is not essential to beating the game, no, but they still offer benefits. You could ignore a lot of upgrades in every RPG and still finish the game, that doesn't make them pointless.

The problem is that the third-person cover system and omniscient radar made augs like X-Ray Vision and Mark & Track pretty useless. I actually turned off the cover system and tried to ignore the radar and that made those two augs significantly more useful. They should have removed the radar completely and replaced it with a health regen aug (that actively consumes energy) instead of having it regen by default.
