Liberty Island

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 0
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 0

This is the character creation screen. You are allotted 5000 points for your character. Here I've upgraded Computer, Electronics and Lockpicking to "Trained." Weapons: Pistol is set to "Trained" by default, but can be downgraded to free up points. (Thanks, Kruszakus.)

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 1
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 1

An opening cutscene plays of a conversation between two mysterious figures. We'll be seeing more of the woman in the upper-right later in the game.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 2
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 2

You have been dropped off at Liberty Island, New York. Your handler, Alex Jacobson, relays your instructions -- meet your brother, Paul.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 3
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 3

After a brief moment Paul approaches you on the docks. Note the crowbar on the ground.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 4
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 4

Paul gives you a choice of weapons: a rifle, a GEP gun, and a crossbow. The crossbow comes with nonlethal tranquilizer darks -- my preference.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 5
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 5

Paul also gives you this map of the island.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 6
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 6

Here are your primary and secondary goals.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 7
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 7

Pick up the crowbar and bust open the crates to find binoculars and this lockpick.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 8
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 8

Take a look around the docks. Here is the UNATCO boat that brought you here.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 9
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 9

Descend these stairs to the water below.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 10
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 10

You'll find these crates floating in a shark cage. Bust the crates open for a Multitool and a Bioelectric Cell.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 11
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 11

You should talk to every NPC you encounter in Deus Ex - repeatedly. This guard tells you that Gunther has gotten himself into trouble and it's up to you to bail him out.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 12
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 12

Alex relays information of an informant on the North Dock who can help you get inside the statue.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 13
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 13

You can speak to Paul repeatedly and get more information about your family and UNATCO.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 14
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 14

Use your crowbar to bust open these crates for darts, a prod charger and 10mm ammo.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 15
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 15

NSF terrorists patrol beyond. Use your binoculars to study their movements from a distance.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 16
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 16

Search any bodies for supplies.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 17
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 17

Avoid the NSF and head left to UNATCO HQ.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 18
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 18

Approach this guard and he'll ask you about your tactics. If you take a hard line he'll approve and give you a security code for a bunker up ahead. We're taking a different approach -- tell him we're using a minimum of force.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 19
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 19

He offers to sell you some equipment. The tranquilizer darts are what we're here for.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 20
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 20

There's the bunker dead ahead. O-d-m writes that a lockpick can be found behind the bunker in a crate.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 21
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 21

Smash this crate for a multitool. There's also another crowbar here.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 22
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 22

Don't fret about this locked bunker -- we'll be back with the security code later.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 23
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 23

Follow your map and compass toward the North Docks. Your immediate destination is the indicated shipping container.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 24
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 24

On top you'll find this Data Cube with the security computer login: NSF001, password smashthestate. Also here is a Prod Charger and a Pepper Gun.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 25
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 25

Once you get to the North Dock, Alex reminds you that the undercover agent Harley Filben is nearby.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 26
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 26

A mercenary thug is on the right, so stay to the left. An NSF terrorist is circling counterclockwise. Wait until he is in this position before advancing. The crates contain nothing we'll be using -- rockets and 30.06 ammo.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 27
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 27

To the left you'll find this shack with Harley Filben waiting in the doorway. Approach Harley and you'll automatically use the code words "Iron and copper."

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 28
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 28

Harley is concerned for the safety of the NSF commander. Choose the response, "You can trust me," and Harley will give you the key to the Statue's front entrance. This completes your secondary objective.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 29
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 29

Talk to the drifter woman and she offers to sell you ammunition, but what she has to say is more valuable. "I'd go in the Statue from the back. Less security that way."

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 30
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 30

Ready a lockpick and drop into the water by this boat ramp.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 31
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 31

Beneath the surface you'll find this ship. Pick the lock on the door directly ahead then come up for air.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 32
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 32

Return to the ship and receive an Exploration Bonus of 50 skill points. Inside these crates you'll find Accuracy and Reload Weapons Modifications and a Sawed-off Shotgun.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 33
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 33

Return to the docks. You'll find a crate with a Medkit where indicated.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 34
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 34

Exit the docks the way you came, keeping the guards' backs to you.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 35
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 35

Continue around to this underground bunker, careful to remain in the shadows.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 36
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 36

Grab the Hazmat suit when the guard isn't looking.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 37
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 37

Alex reports that the power box ahead is dangerous. There are several solutions to bypass the electric arcs. You can use a multitool on the control panel ahead, put on that Hazmat suit we just swiped, or, best yet, push the button (indicated) on the forklift.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 38
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 38

Jump onto the rising lift then hop onto and over the power box.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 39
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 39

You are awarded an Exploration Bonus of 250 skill points. The Weapons Crates contain Laser and Clip weapons mods, and this General Supply Crate holds a Bioelectric Cell.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 40
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 40

Move the small metal crate and use it to step up to the shipping container directly ahead, then step onto and over the power box, once again avoiding the arcs as you return.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 41
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 41

Return above and climb these shipping containers, moving the small metal crates as before to use as steps.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 42
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 42

Don't miss the view from up here. Below is the bunker we just visited.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 43
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 43

More NSF patrol here. Cautiously make your way to this ramp. Ascend the ramp to the upper level.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 44
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 44

Ascend the next ramp up as well.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 45
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 45

Here's your way in. Problem is, there is a gas grenade on the left wall. Disable the grenade then enter the Statue, keeping to the right.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 46
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 46

Head right, then quietly listen to these two. To the right are stairs leading to your primary objective, the NSF commander. To your left are stairs leading to your secondary objective, Gunther. We're heading left.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 47
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 47

Continue down the stairs to this landing. The camera (upper-right) will trigger the ceiling-mounted gun. Duck under the camera when it is pointed away. Bust open the crate for a lockpick.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 48
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 48

Wait until the camera points left (inset), then run past the landing to these stairs. Crouch and descend the stairs, keeping the guard's back to you.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 49
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 49

Approach this doorway and Alex radios that Gunther is being held behind the laser alarm.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 50
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 50

Nearby is this Data Cube with info we had seen before, plus a Lockpick and a LAM.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 51
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 51

Across the lobby is this medical crate. Bust it open to find a Medkit.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 52
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 52

We could use a Multitool or hack the security system using the login and password we obtained before. Instead, we'll enter this ventilation shaft.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 53
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 53

Activate your light and crawl through the ventilation shaft. You'll find this Multitool along the way, and a room to the left, which we will ignore for now.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 54
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 54

Instead, continue to this room. You'll find a Data Cube with an ATM account number and PIN, a P250 and a Medkit.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 55
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 55

Return to the ventilation shaft. This time enter the room we ignored before, then pick the lock on this door.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 56
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 56

Two guards patrol beyond, and one guard remains seated. Alex tells you that Gunther is being held in the room behind the glass. Wait for the camera to turn away then hug the wall on the right and sneak behind the desk. If you are careful, the seated guard will not see you.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 57
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 57

Break into the Security Computer Terminal with the login and password we obtained earlier (NSF001/smashthestate).

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 58
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 58

Turn the camera off. Unlock and open the door. Leave the turret alone because once it fires the guards take notice.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 59
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 59

You must talk to Gunther outside his cell to receive your reward of 150 skill points. He asks you for a gun.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 60
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 60

Deny Gunther the weapon, then hide behind the safety glass while he defeats the NSF with only a knife.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 61
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 61

Here's the desk you were hiding behind earlier. On top is this Accuracy Mod and a baton.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 62
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 62

Talk to Gunther again and he'll insult your more advanced nano-augmentation.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 63
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 63

Now, to complete the primary goal. Return to the lobby through the ventilation shafts.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 64
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 64

Return up these stairs, keeping the camera's back to you as you go.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 65
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 65

You'll eventually arrive at these two again. This time, head right.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 66
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 66

On your way up the stairs you'll receive two transmissions from Alex plus a Progress Bonus of 150 skill points.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 67
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 67

Two NSF guards are at the top of the stairs. Carefully walk behind them and to the left.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 68
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 68

A recurrent flaw in Deus Ex is that your behavior is sometimes judged by where you are rather than by what you do. Alex's caution for you to be "Easy" here is one example. Ascend the ladder.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 69
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 69

The NSF commander awaits at the top. You are awarded a Critical Location Bonus of 750 skill points.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 70
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 70

The commander surrenders. Ask him to tell you about the Ambrosia shipment.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 71
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 71

Your objectives are updated -- return to UNATCO HQ. Keep talking to the commander and he'll let loose with his loopy conspiracy theories.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 72
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 72

Your primary objective is now complete, but your biggest prize is this Augmentation Canister. Grab it now and we'll have it installed later. Your new goal: return to UNATCO HQ.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 73
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 73

Descend to the base of the statue. Approach this map and Alex radios that Silhouette is suspected of destroying the Statue.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 74
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 74

Return to the lobby. All of the NSF have been killed by UNATCO troops. At least none of the blood is on your hands. Note the ATM in the back.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 75
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 75

Use the account number and PIN that we obtained earlier to withdraw 200 credits.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 76
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 76

You'll find your brother, Paul, waiting for you at UNATCO HQ. Approach him for a brief conversation. Your objectives are updated: report to Manderley's office on level 2.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 77
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 77

Enter UNATCO HQ and receive a Progress Bonus of 115 skill points.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 78
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 78

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 79
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 79

Use the retinal scanner (inset) to continue into the offices.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 80
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 80

Your office is here on level 2.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 81
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 81

Alex radios your login and password, and you are awarded an Area Location Bonus of 50 skill points.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 82
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 82

Log in to your account and check your email. You'll want to do this periodically throughout the game.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 83
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 83

You'll find Anna and Gunther in this break room. Approach them and endure their insults to complete a secondary objective.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 84
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 84

Here is the location of your primary objective - Joseph Manderley's office.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 85
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 85

On the secretary's desk is the Nano Key for the closet doors as well as this Data Cube with Manderley's login and password.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 86

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 87
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 87

Use the Nano Key from the secretary's desk to access the two hallway closets for supplies.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 88
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 88

Descend to Level 3. In the corridor on the left are the offices for Anna, Gunther and Sam. The corridor on the right is where you'll find Jaime and Alex.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 89
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 89

Let's start by visiting Medical. Jaime explains how to use the augmentation canister you picked up in the Statue.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 90
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 90

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 91
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 91

Inside the closet you'll find a Medical Supply Crate with a Medkit.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 92
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 92

Use the Medical Bot to install your augmentation canister we picked up earlier. Microfibral Muscle will allow us to move obstacles and is more desirable for a stealthy gamestyle than its counterpart, Combat Strength.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 93
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 93

Next, step across the hall to see Alex.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 94
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 94

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 95
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 95

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 96
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 96

Grab this candy bar -- we'll be using it later in the next level.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 97
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 97

The Sci-Fi convention poster on the wall gives up AJacobson's password, "Calvo". Read this email to get the locker code: 2001. Inside the locker are a Lockpick, a Bioelectric Cell and some flares. (Thanks to Eagle Eyes Steve K.)

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 98
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 98

Next, head over to Sam Carter and receive a Subject Acquisition Bonus of 50 skill points.

Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 99
Deus Ex Walkthrough - Deus Ex 99

Sam gives you a stealth pistol plus a selection of more equipment. The lockpick or multitool are good choices. Here, I choose the Multitool. img(215870); Lastly, you can check out Anna and Gunther's offices across the hall. Not much here other than a Bioelectric cell visible on the table behind Anna. A table on the left has a Data Cube with Gunther's login and password. img(215871); Beyond are these holding cells, and a baton on this desk to the right. img(215872); You can also wander into the ladies room and startle poor Shannon -- but we wouldn't be so crass. img(215873); Don't return to Manderley's office just yet. Instead, head back outside to this bunker. img(215874); Enter the door code we got from the Data Cube in Alex's office - 0451. img(215875); Inside, you'll find Tranquilizer Darts and a control panel. img(215876); Hack the panel (better yet, use the login and password courtesy onfactorial) to open this bunker. Descend to earn an Exploration Bonus of 50 skill points and an EMP Grenade. img(215877); The office door key we found in Alex's office opens the two locked offices on Level 1. Inside this office you'll find a Lockpick and a Multitool. img(215878); This office holds an Accuracy Weapon Modification and an office door key code under the desk. img(215879); When you arrive at Manderley's office you'll find Paul there as well. Your objectives are updated -- get down to the South Dock. img(215880); Manderley gives you 1000 credits for completing your primary objective and another 250 for rescuing Gunther. He also berates you for being in the ladies room. Tsk, tsk! img(215881); Finally, return to the South Dock and board the boat to end the level - without having fired a single shot!
