    Rescuing Megan and Her Team

    1. Move through the door by the number 27 in the corner and take cover behind the railing ahead. When the guards below split up, get to the ground below and disable them both, then move towards the opposite end of the area.
    2. Head to the back right corner of the area and push forward through the dumpster, then use the box in the back left corner to climb through the window. Wait for the guard in the next hall to move past you going right, then disable him and enter the second door on the right from where you entered.
    3. Disable the guard, then hack into the jammer to deactivate it and use the monitor to shut down the security camera. Hack into the orange-colored room to acquire more supplies. Exit the building, near where you disabled the first guard in this area, and stay low as you move right.
    4. Head down the steps and take cover as you turn around, then disable the guard in front of you and enter the glass doors to the right. Use the glass doors in this area to exit the building and take cover behind the pillar ahead to disable the next enemy.

    1. Make your way to the staircase in the back right corner, then turn around towards the left when you reach the top and enter the next building. Move under the security camera and make a left down the hall, then bust through the wall on your right.
    2. Access the elevator behind the containers in the back right corner of the room, then speak with Eric Koss in the next room. Ask him whatever questions you need to, then go back to the elevator and return to the previous floor.
    3. Move through the door ahead and take cover by the corner keep an eye on the guard, then move beneath the camera and disable the enemy. Hack into the last door at the end of the hall and talk with Nia, then exit back into the hallway.
    4. Move underneath the camera to the opposite side of the hallway and turn left, then make a right into the walkway. Go down the stairs to reach the lobby, then use the couches and display cases to eliminate all the enemies in the room.
    5. Use the entryway directly across from where you entered and move right through the hallway to reach the red lasers, then hack and deactivate them. Continue forward through the corridor and access the elevator.
    6. When you get out of the elevator, move forward and make a left at the end of the hall, then make your next left through the double doors and talk with Declan. Afterwards, exit into the hallway and make a left to enter the freezer, then bust through the wall at the back of the room and use the valve to shut off the toxic gas.
    7. Move forward and jump up the pipes to reach the platform above, then duck into the space in the corner and continue through the corridor. Jump up on the pipe against the wall and duck into the air shaft, then pop up through the grate to get back outside and move towards the back left corner of the area.
    8. Use the wooden crates to move around the corner and avoid the bot, then continue towards the map marker and enter the tunnel. Move underneath the security camera and wait for it to swing sideways, then enter the next tunnel opposite from you.

    1. Enter the next room and hack the computer to disable the threats, then use the disk reader to upload the virus. Move back into the tunnel and follow the map marker to access the elevator and activate the cut scene. The robot you reprogrammed should take care of any enemies that come your way.
    2. You must now defeat Jaron Namir. When the battle begins, run into the corridor that is diagonally to the left from where you are. This is the outer pathway of the stage and where you will be spending most of your time during this fight.
    3. Take cover behind one of the corners and watch for Namir to appear in one of the adjacent hallways. He will have a cloaking device on most of the time, but you should still be able to see his shadow.

    1. As soon as you see the Namir, open fire on him with a quick burst or single shot, depending on your weapon, then go back into cover. If he returns with a blast of energy, then you can return fire again when he’s done. But if he jumps in the air, then you need to run to the next corner because he’s about to throw some grenades at you.
    2. You can pick up extra ammo and supplies in the drawers at the base of some of the statues. and at other locations around the edge of the room. If you enter the middle section of the area, don’t stay more than a few seconds or Namir will eliminate you almost immediately with close ranged attacks.
    3. Continue moving between the four corners on the outer pathway and firing upon Namir until the cut scene activates. Afterwards, exit the room and pick up the plasma rifle on the way out, then enter the doors at the end of the hall to activate another cut scene.

    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.
