    Confronting Eliza Cassan

    1. Move forward to enter the building and follow the map marker into Eliza’s office to activate the cut scene. Afterwards, exit the room and make a right to find your way to the door at the end of the hall, then use the vent inside to the room to reach the upper levels.
    2. Use the railings as cover and disable the guards around the upper levels, then use those same railings to fire at and eliminate the enemies on the ground floor. When all threats have been dealt with, return to the lower level and follow the map marker to the next area.
    3. Disable the guard in the next room and enter the elevator to reach the floor below, then follow the map marker to the hallway ahead and hack into the first door on the right. Climb the stairs to the upper control room and exit through the door in the far corner to reach the large news room. There are various supplies in the closet that you can grab before exiting the control room.

    1. Take cover behind the railing and disable the guards on the upper level, then pick up the sniper rifle on the right end of the area from where you entered. Use the sniper rifle to clear out the enemies on the ground floor, then move down the stairs and follow the map marker into the next hallway without being spotted by the Typhoon.
    2. Hack the glass door and move down the stairwell, then eliminate the two enemies in the next room and enter the hallway to your right. Follow the hallway around to the door by the Funicular Zone sign.
    3. Enter the next room and eliminate the two guards, then continue following the map marker to the elevator while avoiding the turret. Hit the funicular button and collect the gas grenades and mines in the area, then take cover behind the box near the doors while you wait for them to open.
    4. Use your mines and grenades to fend off the enemies that appear, then enter the doors behind you when they eventually open. Hit the button to start the funicular and descend to the basement, then exit the vehicle and collect the supplies on the boxes ahead.

    1. Move underneath the security camera and disable the red lasers, then eliminate the enemies in the hall and continue forward. Use the EMP grenade you collected to destroy the bot, then enter the room with the hand statue and move forward through the vent to the left of it.
    2. Open the grating at the end of the duct and drop down when the guard below you turns around, then disable him and run forward through the nearby hall. Hide in the room to your right until the alarm fades out, then exit and continue to the right. You can leave the door open to this room and take out any enemies that happen to walk by to better your odds for survival later one
    3. Take cover from desk to desk as you make your way towards the map marker and eliminate the enemies you come across. If you are spotted hide underneath the desk until the alarm fades out. When you are out of harm’s way, move beneath the security camera and enter the door ahead.

    1. Move down the stairs, being wary of the proximity EMP mine, and roll past the next hallway ahead. Enter the door on the left and disable the nearby enemy, then disable the bot and cameras in the computer room nearby.
    2. Move towards the map marker and pass through the glass door at the back of the room. Hack through the door ahead and enter the hallway to your left, then move towards the map marker to the next door and activate the cut scene. The first room on your left before entering that last door will re-equip ammo for your heavy rifle.

    1. You will now face off against the mercenary leader. Her primary attack is to rush towards you and release an explosive charge. She will repeat this action three times, then turn invisible and run around the area to recharge.
    2. When the battle begins, fire upon her to keep her at bay. When she charges at you, run towards and past her until you hear her detonate, then turn around and take a few shots before running past her again.
    3. An important part of surviving this battle is to keep track of the boss by watching the ripples of coolant on the ground. Follow this path to track the mercenary and fire upon her when she comes to a stop. As soon as you hit her, take cover to avoid her return gunfire.
    4. Listen to Eliza’s warnings and move to the center of the area when the mercenary is ready for another three attacks. This will avoid accidentally detonating the power generators that electrocute the floor. The electricity will damager her, but it will also damage you significantly as well.
    5. Pick up ammo, mines and other supplies using the cabinets spread around the edge of the level. The best weapons for defeating this boss are the heavy rifle and the shotgun. Do not engage her in hand-to-hand combat as she will block and counter the attack to deal you more damage.
    6. Repeat the attack strategy listed above until the cut scene activates. Afterwards, move through the exit to reach the helipad and board the chopper to complete the mission.
    7. Achievement/Trophy Unlocked: The Mantis (Bronze): You defeated Yelena Fedorova, elite member of a secret mercenary hit squad.

    Great guide! Definitely getting this game. My type of game. Serious mature real world storyline. Not the convoluted rolling your eyes Final Fantasy or MGS4 Japanese storyline. A thinking man’s RPG. The guide is going to be very helpful in starting the game so you get the most out of playing it. Thanks!

    Its too bad they don’t let you keep your weapons and ammo in game+.

    After several playthroughs I would have like to just fool around in the gaming environment. Use bazookas for the lonely guard, npcs etc. Just push the boundaries of the game and fool around. There’s no multiplayer to keep bringing me back and after 3-4 playthroughs I would have been nice to go guns blazing. I had fun replaying Resident evil 5 with infinite bazooka and ammo. Putting this would have been another incentive to keep replaying to get a infinite ammo bonus or something. Maybe they’ll change it or a DLC

    Just one thing. You let Malik die didn’t Ya…not nice, it’s actually possible to save’er, very hard though…if Ur playing on give me deus ex dificulty…xD.

    This was useful… But it depended on being able to hack things and when I try to look up the passcodes they don’t come up for the ‘TNNLHUB’ computer. As I have no hacking skill at all, this walkthrough became useless to me when it told me to hack something =’[

    It’s a great walkthrough, just not suited to everyone.

    Looking for a helpful comment about typhoon ammo and how to use for x360? I have the augmentation and ammo and i’ll get within 8m or so and its never available to use?? Any info is welcomed. thanks!


    On September 5, 2011 at 7:22 am

    Disregard post. sorry its dpad…duh :-)

    I killed if I only absolutely had to, used tranq rifle and non-lethal take-downs most of the time, except for when malik was being attacked, and quests that required someone to die, like rotten business, and a few other times I used lethal force I probably forgot, I played the game realistically.

    Why are you comparing this to MGS or FF? MGS is a similar-game but is more story driven, and FF is on the other end of the spectrum. The storylines in all the Deus Ex games have been very weak, and are great for people who like popcorn movies like yourself, instead of something that contains a rich narrative. This isn’t a ‘thinking’ game due to its design of being able to beat the game without using a single augmentation. Any idiot can do it, like yourself.

    Actually go on the roof and look left jump ontop of the dryer vents and work you way to the buulding across from the roof you start on from there you can punch through a wall kill an enemy in the process and take out another down the hall you will find no were to go unless you have a landing upgrade which i dont so on the left is an old elivator shaft with a shotgun in it pick that up and jump down.


    On September 12, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    How the heck do you know when you can punch thru a wall? I’ve got the augmentation, and so far after 90hrs., I’ve had no luck……And for killing Bill, I’ve started over a dozen times trying to stock up, and that big sob still gets me.


    On September 13, 2011 at 10:46 am

    No mention of that mine though is there? You basterd.


    On September 16, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Great guide =] anyways…just thought I’d let you know I found a way to walk through the front doors of the hive everytime without having to pay. If you examine the rooms of the Hung Hua hotel you should find a hive membership card. The bouncer will let you in like you’re a regular…not that it is absolutely necessary…just another option =]

    LOL MGS had a good storyline compared to this? If you say so…either way this game isnt really all that much of a prequel. It’s just a better made version of the first game. If you played this game without hacking then you probably missed out on about 50% of the content and upgrades. Stealing that MEPS gun from the police lockup was the best boost in the whole game for non-killers like myself. That gun was essential in keeping Malik alive by taking out both heavy gunners with one shot after sprinting up while invisible..then it was just take out the combat riflers with the stun gun, meps or just punch em. Between gas grenades and emp grenades i dont think i had a mech last longer than 5 sec after i cycled through my gear.

    Jenson’s voice, and sometimes his mannerisms, reminds me of Clint Eastwood.

    Has anyone registered this game with Square Enix?

    I haven’t. At least not yet. I read the legal stuff one had to sign up to first. Put me right off.

    hi, i just started the game and it would be a noob question but, where can we see achievements in game? there isn’t any achivements page that we can see them.

    i’m not sure im getting achievements so i jsut wanted to see them because it doesnt appear on bottom of my screen when i supposed to get them for example after first takedown or after first ghost. (i get ghost exp at left of screen but no achievement)

    someone please explain me how it works. thanks

    This is the best walkthrough I have found yet for this game. Of course, as you mentioned, there are many desk drawers and hidden areas to search, and sometimes valuable information and items can be found this way. It is very time consuming, however.

    One of the most amazing things in the game that I discovered, was that I could take control of turrets, and carry them around with me from floor to floor, and even carry one down on the funicular to protect me in the lower level of Picus Communications. It even attacked the robot at the bottom of the stairs and destroyed it for me. No other game I have ever played has allowed me to do something like this.

    I now have played through the game three times. The first time, I used a combination of lethal and non lethal weapons. I then played it and was able (with much difficulty), to go completely non lethal Except for the boss fights, of course. The last time, I tried to hunt down and kill every enemy in the game, using only lethal weapons. The most difficult fight in the game for me was trying to save Malik in non lethal mode.

    This game has captured my attention as much as the original Doom and Quake games I played many years ago, and I consider it to be in the top 5 of all the hundreds of games I have ever played since I started many years ago. It has prompted me to buy the original Deus Ex, and now I am playing it to compare the two.
