I'm so glad they got rid of the pdf guides. The format was always so disappointing, and somehow the guides were less helpful that their html counterparts.
Take the helm as Adam Jensen and uncover the conspiracy. Our Deus Ex Human Revolution Walkthrough provides a full walkthrough, sidequests, and info on augmentations.
Following the GPL
Your return trip to China is a rocky one and comes with a heavy burden. Malik's chopper is downed and in trouble. You must make a very bold choice here: leave your comrade to die as you slip through or save the pilot while risking your own life.
All of the enemies are gunning for the helicopter, which can allow you to quickly and easily slip passed them and to the elevator into Hengsha. While saving Malik is taxing, it's not impossible. Your targets include two Belltower heavies, four infantry on the ground, two more infantry standing inside the partial constructed buildings, two snipers, and a robot.
Speed is of the essence here, as the helicopter will explode after taking too much damage. If you grabbed a sniper rifle before leaving Detroit, you have a clear vantage point to take down all of the enemies within the buildings, and maybe even one or two riflemen on the ground. If you don't have a sniper rifle, leave the enemy snipers for last, as they don't do enough damage compared to some of the other foes.
The biggest threats are the heavies and robot. The heavies can be killed with a takedown, but that can put you in the line of fire. Alternately you can toss an explosive barrel at them which will also instantly kill them. As with other robots, a single EMP grenade will destroy it. You can even time the EMP so that a few of the soldiers get caught in the robot's detonation.
Whether you sweep the enemy, or loose a trusted friend your next objective is tracking the GPL in Hengsha. Implants throughout town are going haywire, even your own. After your augmentations reset, trace the signal by following your quest waypoint. You'll be stopped by a thug that attempt to blackmail you, but he can be intimidated or bribed.
After dealing with the riff-raff, continue tracking the signal to Hive territory. The entrance you need to enter not only needs to be hacked, but is guarded by nearly 10 Harvesters. The door itself is only level 1, so cloaking and quickly unlocking a path is an option. Alternately, you blast your way in, using EMP grenades to stun the Augs.
Make your choice to wind up in a ravaged parking garage. There is a turret ahead, along with a Harvester guarding a computer. Use a takedown to stun the gangster and hack the turret. If you have heavy lifting augmentations, you can consider setting the turret to attack enemies and carry the sentry with you.
Head down the ramp to the lower level and be mindful of the security camera on the left. Three more Harvesters are within the immediate area, and another two are down the ramp on the right. Gun, stun, or avoid detection as you head down to the third level. Your goal is to the left, but there are still plenty of enemies patrolling.
Three guards are in the next room, including a heavy. As with Belltower and Tyrants, Harvester heavies have too much protection for an all out assault and are handled much more safely with a takedown. As for the other enemies, either dodge them entirely or take them out with quick headshots from your rifle or tranqs. This might put other enemies in an alarmed state, but if you stay in cover they won't outright attack.
Head left yet again to arrive just feet from your goal. There are three more Harvesters here that you can easily stun or kill. Since your objective is so close you can also simply dash towards the door.
After a brief cutscene, Tong will order his men to stop harassing you. He is also willing to lend you a hand if you do him a favor and take out Administrator Wang.
"... have just searched Radford's locker after taking the Suits out with my silenced pistol. I have grabbed the pictures from the safe and interogated the computer there, as well as read the Ebook.
When I go to leave the lockup the game is telling me there's more photos to find in the lockup. I can't find anything else. Is this a glitch, or do I have to come back later or something?"
Never mind. I have solved it. There were five emails on the computer in the lockup. I had missed the last one that was off the bottom of the screen. Once I had read this the game updated and I'm now on my way again.
My thanks to Maf17. Using the Typhoon (plus the EMP protection upgrade) did the trick for me too. I think the EMP protection was the thing that did it for me though. She seemed impotent against this and I may well have been able to take my time and tickle her to death if I wanted to.
Anyway, now have just searched Radford's locker after taking the Suits out with my silenced pistol. I have grabbed the pictures from the safe and interogated the computer there, as well as read the Ebook.

I thought there was an Achievement where you let Doctor Isaias Sandoval commit suicide? I'm not sure if it was on the Xbox or PC version.
There was one other Question I have, as in the Banner Above where it says walk through, it shows Jensen wearing a helmet of sort, I think I saw in a preview trailer as well. Yet in game that is never an option, unless it was dropped from the game during development? Or could that be a hint for the next Deus Ex?

@Dremun If you have completed all the sidequests ie: Lesser Evils, Motherly Ties and Cloak and Daggers then just ignore the warning and board the helo/VTOL. If you have started these sidequests but have not finished, then they will be cancelled like it said when you continue to Hengsha. If you haven't started any of the sidequests, you can choose to stay in Detroit and complete them first before moving on to Hengsha, or you can just move onto Hengsha. The warning message will always appear before you move onto Hengsha no matter what.
Thank you for that Info, it is much appreciated, I hit delete on my post in error, and I just got on to the helo/Vtol and got no warning messages and the side quests that I had were showing up as completed when I looked at my quest logs. And I started my second play through on the hardest setting, it kinda seems like it's easier, but i will find out when I crash land in China on the second trip there :)
There's one more sidequest in Hengsha Part 2. To activate it you must talk to a doctor when you go to the LIMB clinic to change your chip.
Man, I don't now if its because i'm only look at the still photos here or something, but to me, the ps3 version of this game looks better then the 360 version iv been playing.
None of the bosses are hard if you choose weapons for tactics not for style. Also remember A.I is always stupid so they fall for anything and never learn. I chose to stock up on prox mines to begin with because I foresaw their potential. All you have to do is hug a wall and keep tossing the mines around the corners. First tactic I tried and since it worked so well I never attempted anything else. Flashbang to stun, gas to stun and damage and Explosive to damage. EMP are a waste on Bosses, but great for bots. I knocked out only few characters and only killed the bosses. It was so much easier just slip by everyone. I suppose you could go homocidal for fun but it doesn't seem necessary. Doing so just removes the ambieance and takes more time and inventory space for weapons. Played the game several times and haven't used most of the weapons beyond test firing, so I don't bother carrying anything other than the Tranq rifle, Tazer, revolver & shotgun.
Yelena is easy. Typhoon her at close range when she uncloaks in front of you, that damages her a lot, then she goes down with one blast of heavy rifle.
will somebody please tell me why this game DOESN'T HAVE NEW GAME PLUS!!??? damnit, i miss codebreaker and gameshark! :(
It`s a Bummer that the guides are NOT PDF files anymore. Gamepressure.com has free PDF guides for download that are very Beautiful as well.I like PDF files because they work GREAT with a Kindle device.A nice hand-held Guide device for your Lap.
I concur with other users. Why have the PDF guide stopped? It's nice to have the PDF guide itself. It's easier to find the info I need via a search, etc. Please bring them back.
I have been a Total Access subscriber for 9 years and 5 months...and I agree completely with ngadd the previous poster!!! One of the major reasons I joined was to get the .pdf files of your walkthroughs. How about continuing that policy or at least give us a good explination as to why it has been ended. That way I can come to a reasoned decision when renewall time comes around again.
Why isn't this guide (nor any other recent guide) downloadable any more ? Not even for longstanging Gamespot subscribers such as myself ? I've used loads of them over the years, and it's nice to have a printed copy to hand without having to go online all the time....
to become invisible, you need to invest in the cloak augmentation, then the d-pad button is in the upper right .i believe it is the down button.this is all for ps3. Also Yalena was cake walk. just run around the room and use the heavy rifle to shoot the computers to shock her then burn her down. No fuss, no muss.
The Yelena fight was pretty easy, toss a frag mine right in front of you as soon as the fight starts and move quickly to the left or right. The frag mine will stun her and then shoot away with a long range weapon and toss a couple more frag mines at her location. Takes about 10-20 seconds to kill her this way after stunning her with the first frag mine.
I got lucky with Yelena. Ended up finding a glitch. First I hit her with the stun gun then ran up to her and did the 'kill' takedown. She of course counters this bringing you close to death but because she is supposed to be stunned the game got confused and stuck her in place. I had a lot of fun shooting her in the head with my 10mm pistol knowing she couldn't do anything about it. About 10 shots later she died and I was on my way :P
Need extra cash? Put a police officer to sleep through takedowns or tranquilizer rifle, then pick up the weapon, go to the weapon store and sell it, repeat process...
Yelena was extremely easy. Just let her charge , then hit her with the stun gun and took out my handy dandy shot gun and let her have it. Did that 3 or 4 times and that was a wrap.
This is a pretty decent guide, however I think the jump ability is useless if you have heavy lifting as you can usually stack items to get to higher areas.
Hengsha 2 has at least 1 more sidequest, - Talion A.D. Given to you by a Dr. at the Limb Clinic, and consisting in finding the whereabouts of a former patient from the military that has gone awire, called Zelazny.
In case anyone wants an extra praxis, you can kill the barman downstairs in the hive and you'll find one on him when you search. I went on a mad killing spree and murdered everyone in the hive, went out the front door and the bouncer still wanted to charge me to get back in :-(
@rabksaj I didn't think I would like purely stealth based games so avoided Splinter Cell. But after playing as a stealth character on my second playthrough of DE:HR I thought I'd give the first SC a go and I liked it so much I've just bought the rest.
I don't understand people complains about the fact that if you play "stealth" it is hard to kill bosses. Not really. If you play "stealth"... well continue doing it during the boss fight da... That is how I took out Barret: After cutscene throw flash grenade. It will give you time to get to the stash with shotgun and EMP grenade. After flash effect passes he doesn't know where you are and most likely will move to the corner where you stand in the beginning. After that I waited until he turned facing wall, through EMP granade and the red barrel which is in the centre of the room. Then he dropped 3 grandees under his own feet. Another? EMP + 1-2 shotgun head shots and that was it. PS He never made a shot to my side...
Nothing beats the good old stealth games of splinter cell. you have real cool gadgets such as noise distracter. sticky diversion camera.etc etc.
"Version 1.2 has arrived. The Walkthrough is complete." No it isn't, even weeks after the game was released.
that boss strat for yelena is quite possibly the dumbest design I have seen in a game in years. Even with augs. So stupid. Not very clever at all.
The game guide is also missing one little side quest called Talion A.D. which you can get from a doctor by visiting the limb clinic in hengsha the second time.
@godiskingofall, Well I can't speak for later bosses yet, but you're right about how the first 2 pretty much went. I'm actually quite surprised how fast I took out that chick Yelena. She tagged me good the first couple of tries, but then I actually used the most ingenious weapon of all....I opened up a few cans of Typhoon whoop-ass on her w/ about dozen rounds or so off my Machine pistol (modded, of course) & that was a wrap. I actually just let her take herself out of hiding a then once she came running' up on me like a damn fool, I let have it, lol. Quick Tip: if you can go ahead and max out Typhoon before the fight do it--the more power the Typhoon blast the quicker you'll take her out. Damn people wasn't lying when they said her fight was actually breeze. I caught waaay more headbanging hell w/ Barrett....
GOTY. No doubt. Damn it, in that room when the hostages have been held, I just sneaked pass it since I had no more tranquilizer rounds, which I wasted on patrols in the facility entrance since I though they could actually move to other areas and complicate my objective further, but no, they were. Well. Patrolling THAT area, which I easily passed trough that ventilation duct. I could use some takedowns, yeah, but I would be easily spotted and I was trying to finalize the game withouth being spotted, alarming systems, or killing anyone a single time. Lots of achievments, huh? Yeah. I'm already in China and so far my tasks are going well. But now that I've seen that I could have saved the hostages and I wouldn't see the final hostage, which I save suceesfly, crying.
"The Seaport is the point of no return. Not only are you about to say bye to China, this is one of the last chances to purchase items, weapons, and praxis." This is not true - there is a Limb-clinic in Panchea...for us Praxis addicts :)
If you have the Grenade Launcher, all boss fights become easy. And save up for electrical resistance for the final boss fight!
lol i find deus ex boss fights ridiculously easy except for the first one. what i did for Yelena was dodge as much of her first attack as possible. after her first attack she cloaked to go charge. all i did was turn on smart vision , find her shoot her twice with my revolver (with explosive round add on) when she had her back to me then just when she's about to charge at me , shoot the power source thing ( i have max dermal armour ) causing her to freeze , then shoot her 2 or 3 times in the head done.
