      From the city streets, follow your map marker to the clinic and enter the building to activate the cut scene. Afterwards, buy whatever supplies you can and exit the shop to complete the mission.

      Stopping the Transmission

      1. Follow the map marker to Karl’s, which is indicated by the larger neon sign above. The armed guards patrolling the front of the property will not let you pass so you will have to find another way inside.
      2. One of the alternate routes can be found by moving past the building to your left and climbing the fire escape ladder in the first alley on the right. Continue up the staircase and enter the building through the door at the top, then move through the hallway and exit onto the roof.
      3. Move forward towards the vines growing in the corner and turn right. Sprint across the rooftop and up the small ramp at the edge, then jump towards the building across the gap. Make sure to jump at the last possible second to safely land on the fire escape below.
      4. Walk down the stairs and take cover behind the railing when necessary to avoid being seen. Climb down the ladder to the ground level and move stealthily along the wall to your left towards the streets.
      5. Make a left behind the cargo container and disable the person leaning against the wall if need be. Turn right up the wooden ramp and enter the door in the corner, then exit through the next door ahead.
      6. Jump over the obstacles to move through the hallway ahead and disable the guard leaning over the railing ahead of you. Move down the steps and hug the right wall to duck into the space beneath the floor.
      7. Move through the enclosed space and duck under the half-closed shutter ahead, then wait for the coast to be clear and push aside the dumpster to your right. Take cover behind the barricade on your left and wait for the guard to come back toward you.
      8. Disable the guard when his back is turned and turn around, then hug the left wall to move behind the large containers and sneak past the group of guards by the burning barrels. Take cover when you come to the last container in that row and wait for the two enemies to finish their conversation about the rocket launcher.
      9. Continue forward by hugging the left wall and take cover when you come to the last container in the row. Wait for the guard around the corner to turn his back, then sneak through the concrete pipe ahead and disable him. Move through the hole in the fence ahead and clear the barrels out of the way to reach the next area.
      10. Pick up the supplies and jump up through the hole in the floor to reach the room above. Exit the room and sneak through the next door on your left, then take cover before entering the next area to get a view of the enemies in the room.
      11. Disable the guard nearest to you, then eliminate the enemies sitting on the couch. Exit the room and climb the series of ladders to reach the next floor. Duck into the hallway ahead and disable the proximity mines by shooting them.
      12. Quickly take out the next group of guards around the corner and exit onto the rooftop. Move to the opposite end of the area and hack into the terminal on the antenna to disable the jammer. Turn around and climb up the stairs to your right to enter the helicopter and complete the mission.

      The Transmission

      1. Follow the map marker into the building and continue towards it through the hallway to complete the mission.

    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

    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.

    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.

    @Joseph:

    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.

    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.

    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.
