Master the stunning futuristic thriller with these handy hints from the game's developer, Eidos Montreal.
Use cover in Deus Ex: Human Revolution as often as possible. Enemy detection in the game is defined by line of sight, so be sure to stay hidden if you want to remain a ghost.
Always be aware of iron sights when using weapons in the game, especially before you get into a firefight. It's definitely worth experimenting with the sights of each new weapon as you get them.
Cover to cover
Whenever you find yourself in cover, you're always prompted when the cover to cover or cornering action is available to you. Check your surroundings before shifting between crates, barriers and walls because you can be detected when shifting cover.
Upgrading is a pivotal part of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so don't forget to do it every chance you have. You can upgrade both Adam's augmentations and his weapons, so be sure to do both over the course of the campaign.
It's unlikely that you'll hit a target when using blindfire in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. However, it's still worth employing this tactic because it's a great way to scare an enemy off and stop them from advancing on your position.
It may feel a little unscrupulous, but always take the time to look in drawers, lockers, bins and even downed enemies. You never know what a quick peek might yield.
Never hesitate to manually save your game in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You can do this any time you want in the game by pressing START on your wireless controller and choosing the Save option from the menu screen.
Don't be afraid to take the time and explore your surroundings in the game. Chances are there are several ways to approach a situation, some of which are not so obvious at first glance.
Analyse the situation
Whenever you have a slow paced weapon like the tranquillizer gun or the sniper rifle, try to avoid close combat. It's too risky and chances are you'll do more harm than good to yourself. Whenever you have the sniper rifle in your weapon inventory, use the scope view for the best possible accuracy.
Spend the time to search an area for pocket secretaries. These often have codes or passwords that can be really useful for unlocking rooms, computers and security systems. Finding codes means you don't have to spend the time hacking, which leaves you less vulnerable to being spotted by an enemy.
