Tuesday, October 18, 2011 @ 04:16:41 PM
Ok I've figured it out, although the achievement says do not use any praxis KITS, you cannot upgrade your augmentations at all, not even with praxis points rewarded by gaining XP. Kinda sucks. :P

Registered just to comment here...lol.
I got this achievement, not too hard. A LOT of sneaking and non-lethal takedowns.
If you haven't figured it out yet in the main game, enemy bodies can be dragged near lasers to turn them off. Without any upgrades, you'll be unable to hack anything. Take out all the enemies and loot for pocket secs.
You can't kill anyone, not even robots, you can never even fire off a shot to draw attention. Just don't pick up any guns or grenades, remove tempation. You have to melee-kill the boss.

What about lethal takedowns? Do they count against you? I usually do non-lethal, but for some reason, I noticed I killed one guard so far (not on purpose).
|Comment #14 by nothingface023|
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 @ 10:21:29 PM
Sorry for the double post - I meant that one of my non-lethal takedowns seemed to kill the guard. Weird.

i got this. just play on easy, no weapon,grenade/mines and Praxis kits pickup. if you accidently took some ammo thats fine it wont void the achievement. hostile state is ok too, at some places i just ran cause cant be bothered sneaking around. just make sure save often cause you might pick up something accidently.

@19: If you click on the downloadable content tab in the main menu you can play just this. I was hoping it would be added into the game like Mass Effects DLC was

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 @ 02:12:14 PM
I finished the whole addon with no use of praxis kits, weapons, explosives etc. I only used non-lethal take downs and never killed a person and yet the achievement did not pop. I pulled out weapons and things but never once fired them or used blades. I was spotted as some points I had to run because of the amount of enemies just to get through an area. Damn it. I think it was actually harder doing that than in the main game to get the 3 100G achievements as more times in this you end up cornered with lots of enemies and with no praxis upgrades no augmentations to use invisibility to hide, strength to make new ways or hacking to disable some security.
Still great addon though a bit too much backtracking - but it is Deus Ex so the core gameplay is great. Have to try again and hope it fire

Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 04:24:09 AM
i havent started this one yet but do intend to.
Now i know there aload of dos and donts concerning picking up weapons im just gunna ignore the temptation as i know that im more than capable with takedowns and that the store is crap, so i dont need the cash.
Praxis Kits and points are the same so no touching... (SERIOUSLY CRYING OVA HERE lol)
main question: at the end, if ur not allowed to use praxis kits / weapons or explosives how do you deal with the box guard when dealing with burke?
i rekon i can deal with burke and the other guards but that box guard.....
|Comment #26 by MRCTECH4|
Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 06:46:43 AM
well i've just done a quick run through, all non-lethal takedowns, no weapon / ammo pick ups, nor did i pick up or use any praxis kits / points.
i reached the box guard at the end and died everytime cuz that bugger kept followin me, when i went back to a previous save i grabbed a EMP (i thought and hoped it wouldnt count as an explosive) but that didnt work no achievement.
any and ALL suggestions for that box guard are welcome.
|Comment #27 by kevross33|
Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 01:05:07 PM
You don't have to deal with the box guard (I didn't). As soon as you start in that room go left and there is a container. Go onto that, press up against it, wait for guard to go and drop down and get behind something but head quickly for the far wall. Up the ladder and onto the roof where burke is, take down ogre guard then drop through hole and take down burke (achievement for this if not spotted). Go out and down following left wall now, take down lone guard then up ladder for final 2 snipers. Then it ends and the guy talks; no idea what happens with box guard. Still I never got achievement :( Guess it may even count pulling out a weapon as using it even if you never fire it.
|Comment #28 by Milosuperspesh|
Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 02:18:13 PM
using stuff would imply equiping it
so i'd say go through the game and avoid all pick ups,
what about health/energy bars ?
might go through the game once all guns blazing to get a feel for it then do this..
|Comment #29 by MRCTECH4|
Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 03:32:37 PM
well ive got all achievements except this one for the DLC and ive got a save near the end where i havent touched any praxis / weapons or ammo so i will ignore the box guard and report on my success or failure lol
|Comment #30 by MRCTECH4|
Friday, October 21, 2011 @ 04:02:33 PM
hey everyone, just got the achievement.
i didnt pick up any weapons/ ammo or praxis kits. i did use the praxis kits or points used takedowns on the enemies that were in my way and ran and dodged the others. when i reached the end boss fight i dealt with the soldiers and burke.
the hacker disables the box guard and turrets, once ur done chattin at the boat the achievement will pop.
|Comment #31 by Pb Elements|
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 02:19:18 AM
@17, if you pick up mines granades and weapos, it will void the achievement. as pulling out a gun and have granade as standby will void it.
|Comment #32 by Death Rattle|
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 02:47:15 PM

|Comment #35 by Valkynaz|
Monday, October 24, 2011 @ 03:33:47 PM
The achievement gives you specific parameters to follow:
-Do NOT use any weapons, don't even equip them
-Do NOT use any explosives, don't even equip them
-Do NOT use any praxis kits/points, don't even pick them up or spend them
Just go through it following these rules and you're guaranteed the achievement, goddamn. The game is somewhat short and very easy complete, even on DX mode.
|Comment #36 by Ancient Warri0r|
Monday, October 24, 2011 @ 03:46:27 PM
Someone said they did this and didn't receive the achievement.
I just did it too and didn't get it. It was a pain not using the parxis kits or the stun gun. I did pick things up so maybe that was the problem. Also I put up and purchased the praxis kits even though I didn't use them.

Just got this :) i didn't pick up ANYTHING just to be on the safe side, did as full non lethal takedowns as possible (just ran fast past the ones i could). Didn't do anything to box robot at the end and it just disappeared, and did non lethals on the rest of Burke and his team :) 100%d this now, woo :D

Question: Can you throw the red barrles to kill guards? or are they considered 'explosives' for this achievement? (so vague, hard to know if its just grenades and mines... come to think of it, gas grenades shouldn't be considered 'explosive'... )
|Comment #41 by explode a tron|
Thursday, October 27, 2011 @ 11:53:44 PM
Not as hard as it sounds, this achievement. Just play it through on easy, avoid people as much as possible and reatreat after every takedown to let the energy bar recharge.
|Comment #42 by Xprimentyl|
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 01:19:29 AM
LoL @ "pocket secs."
Also, hate these ambiguous cheevos that sound simple enough, but leave so much room for debate and misinterpretation; can anyone say if picking up weapons/ammo/explosives voids the achievement??? I just started, ahven't fired a shot, but have picked up weapons... fack it, I'm starting over...
|Comment #43 by Vund|
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 11:02:02 AM
You can pick up weapons, grenades, mines, ammo, anything- you just can't shoot weapons, use any kind of mines or grenades. No stun gun or tranquilizer. You can also pick up the praxis kits after you get your armor, you just can't spend any of those points.
You can use the power bars, booze and hypostims though. The only way to kill guards is wth melee kills. Not sure about throwing barrels, but I did use a fire extinguisher and was okay.
|Comment #44 by Ben London|
Tuesday, November 01, 2011 @ 11:19:04 AM
This was my first DXHR achievement that didn't unlock when expected... Never used a praxis point, fired a weapon or used an explosive.
What I did, though, was throwing a box at a camera once, applying upgrades to weapons and combining mine templates with grenades - but I didn't use them.
Then I did another run through in about 1.5 hours, literally just running past most of the enemies, setting off alarms like crazy, ignoring any side quests - and got the achievement in the end.

Well, crap. I JUST started The Missing Link an hour ago, came here to get some help with the achievement...and someone says I can't equip any of the weapons (I picked up a Stun Gun and Pistol, but equipped the Stun Gun just in case I slipped on the trigger or something)...therefore, I just nullified my attempt to get this achievement.
Well, I'm not starting over now. I'll just keep going as long as possible without using any of the weapons.

|Comment #49 by Yoda8myhead|
Tuesday, January 03, 2012 @ 02:34:24 AM
I think you can equip a gun as long as you never fire it. I picked one up because I planned to save, get the "All of the Above" cheev and then reload to the save and go ahead without using the gun. When I had to escape the elevator, it automatically drew the gun and the achievement unlocked fine at the end of the game.
|Comment #50 by PoorSmeagol|
Sunday, January 08, 2012 @ 10:28:19 PM
I found this surprisingly easy to do . . . would have gotten it on my first run through if I had realized that merely picking up a Praxis kit counts as 'using' it (even if you don't apply the point).
|Comment #51 by Casper Jazz|
Friday, January 20, 2012 @ 03:35:51 PM
Just want to add my utter fury that I didn't get this, I'm guessing my accidental equipping of a rifle (without firing a shot) voided it, I sure as hell didn't use a praxis kit or explosive.
Shenanigans people, utter shenanigans
|Comment #52 by snake42069|
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 @ 12:59:56 AM
its the same thing with pacifist only more anal. mine got voided because i triggered a mine, and a enemy also triggered a mine. its the same for pacifist, the bad guys in the end trip those when they are going "28 days later" on your ass.

I like games like this and Crysis 2 that encourage Sandbox gameplay, thinking outside the box to do the same thing multiple ways. Especially in this game, where you can have different chat options, or even save or end lives.

I can see this being like Pacifist and Foxiest of Hounds. Both of them failed to unlock for me, and left me 200g shy of what I already should have. Picked it up in sale for 600msp, so thinkin of actually starting it tonight. Gonna take some advice from these posts.

Just got Factory Zero on my first try.
Didn't pick up ANY weapons.
I used tons of candy bars and hyperstims
I picked up ammo by accident
I was spotted and hostile several times (enemies and turrets)
I disarmed mines (but didn't pick them up)
I killed Burke (lethal takedown)
|Comment #59 by TheMCnader|
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 @ 01:42:55 PM
I got the achievement my first try, i did pick up weapons and explosives to sell them to Quinn. I even had an emp grenade equipped at one point and it didn't void the achievement. Accidentally setting off mines and typhoon towers will void it though. Lethal takedowns are okay too, i used them so the guards wouldn't wake their buddies if i got stuck when they found the body. What i think is happening is that most players will set off a mine or something by accident, the best action is to carefully deactivate them, or (when it comes to the typhoon towers) just avoid them entirely.

didnt pick up anything "lethal" to be sure of gettin it thou there were a few times when i really wish i had a grenade on me to send a group of stooges flyin or emp for the bloody turrets watchin the doors. not being able to hack was a bit of an adjustment too.
|Comment #67 by anonasaurus|
Wednesday, August 08, 2012 @ 09:40:08 PM
This is what I did to get the achievement:
-I obtained my ARMOR only which was required to complete the first quest line
-After obtaining my armor I didn't pick up a single thing that wasn't part of the quest-line (much easier than it sounds)
-I killed some guards and knocked some out by using my lethal and non-lethal takedowns
-I didn't grab or pick up ANY praxis-kits, nor did I use the points I acquired from experience
-I disabled mines but did not pick them up after disabling them
-No mines were triggered that affected guards
-Guards did blow each other up sometimes with their own grenades
Those are some of the things that happened during my play-through which still gave me the achievement. Also, at the end, when you have to kill burke, ignore the bot - once

Best advice I can give you in one sentence? Don't pick up anything that isn't part of the quest line.
Best of luck. This one isnt bad

Followed a vid guide trying to get this and I still didn't get it. It mentioned in the achievement guide about being able to only use 1 takedown then having to wait for your energy to replenish. I think I ate one of those energy bars.
Oh well, I'll attempt this another time.

Easy enough to run through the entire DLC in an hour or two for this.
|Comment #72 by jakedilla|
Saturday, January 19, 2013 @ 08:37:35 AM
to the people complaining about not getting this, why would you pull out a weapon and reload it if you know you can't use it? So pointless... you just screwed yourself over because you wanted to look at a gun.
I can't decide whether I wanna do this.. I already got pacifist and foxiest on the main playthrough now I kinda wanna have some fun killing people
|Comment #73 by sunstorm99|
Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 02:03:38 PM
Would like to add my part to this.
You can save use paraxis kits to get certain achivements and reload
You can pick up everything you like, but as long as you dont use a weapon your fine.
Paraxis kits cannot be used.
Managed to do this pick up loads of stuff, and still get the achivment to pop.

The achievement did not pop for me. I did not use any guns, grenades, or upgrades. I did equip guns & grenades and also did lethal take-downs. I'm going to run through a second time doing only non-lethal take-downs and not picking up any guns or grenades. Will update once I finish run
|Comment #76 by daleprechaunman|
Friday, May 17, 2013 @ 02:28:58 AM
CONFIRMED. I got this on second run. I easily ran past alot of guards while ONLY using non-lethal take-downs. I picked up NO guns, ammo, grenades, or praxis kits. I DID use pain killers, stim packs, beer, & energy bars. The robot is destroyed at end after you take down Burke. Hope this helps
