• I plan to use the stealth approach in my first completion of Deus Ex. What augs would be best for the silent assasin way?
  • The one Aug that helped me do that was the Aug that lets you run silently. Makes sneaking up behind people much easier, and faster.
  • And i would like to just say that sneaking in this game isnt killing everybody silently but avoiding most of the enemies.
  • Dunc for the ultimate stelth approch to this game you want to grab Cloak, Radar transparency, run silent, vision enhancement and the power recirulator. If you are thinking how can i have both cloak and radar, its simple. Do NOT use the emp shield or the ballist protection augs. For even more stelth you might want to go for the spy drone as well when you can get it.
    The cloak and radar mean you can not be seen when both augs are on. The power regulator means that you can use these two power hog's for longer. The run silent helps again as it means you are quiter.
    The vision enhancement when bossed a couple of levels allows you to see through walls, making it easier to evade people. This is helped with the spy drone, but the ADS is my normal choice out of the 2 for this canister.
  • And microfibral muscle is useful since u can use it to move boxes quickly in front of doors so the enemies cant come through

    Good point. I must say I have weakness for using the tranc crossbow and riot prod, leaving everyone unconcious. In theory I'm not killing everyone but the reaction from some characters in the story is that I am a cold blooded killer. Does the game count unconcious enemies as dead?

    Well I actually went for the Hacker method as I forgot your advice on not using the EMP Shield aug. It can be a mxture of both Stealth and All out as when you max computor skills you can hack just about all computors, including bank terminals (you seem to get more money for each level of upgrade), can control turrets and get almost a minute on computors before having to log out So in the end the augs I used were a bit of a mixture. Second time around though I`ll be doing what you suggest.
    If being ultimately stealthy means not killing everybody besides not being seen, then the early parts of the game.... before you find some augs, must be pretty difficult.
    Thanks to everyone for their replies.
