Good Soul Achievement / Trophy Guide
As Adam Jensen returns to Hengsha Island, you and Malik will crash land in a construction site. Immediately save your game. Malik will try to repair the helicopter, while soldiers open fire on her and you. It won’t take long for the enemies to kill her, meaning she’s just a sitting duck, and you won’t be able to run across the yard in time to save her without clearing away some of the enemies first – especially the heavies armed with Heavy Rifles. Sounds tough, right?
To succeed and save Malik, prepare properly before leaving Detroit or heading to Sarif Industries. You’ll need frag grenades or gas grenades to quickly down enemies, and at least one EMP grenade to take care of robots. Load up ammo for your most upgraded weapons, and plan to go lethal. Tranquilizers and the stungun are just too slow, but they’re handy for knocking out the heavies in one hit. A Rocket Launcher or Sniper Rifle will save you some headaches, as you can take out the powerful heavies from long range, just be careful not to blow up Malik!
When you’re all geared up, take off for Hengsha. Save after the cutscene, then start taking out bad guys. Shoot the explosive barrels littering the area, try starting with the left building at the back of the area to down a sniper quickly. Jump off and enter the building to your right, go up a level, and jump to the top floor. Take out any enemies on this floor, and start picking off the heavies below on the ground. Use frag or gas grenades to quickly put them down. Tranquilizer darts will also instantly knock them out, but that’s a slow method.
Further through the third floor, you’ll spot more enemies, so take care of them. Get down to ground level to face a robot guard as it lands in the courtyard, so use EMP or an upgraded typhoon blast to destroy it. After that, you only have stragglers to clean up.
Do all that, and you’ve got a pretty good chance at saving Malik. Good luck, good samaritans.
