I'm doing a guns-blazing kind of character now, it's really fun. All these weapon upgrades I missed in the first playthrough are really awesome, including the one upgrade for the SMG/Assault Rifle where it locks onto the target, and no matter how innaccurate the weapon is, the bullets always hit the same spot. Kinda like that one gun in The Fifth Element, except you still need to be facing the general direction of your target.
Anyone got tips to kill that tough robo bitch (2nd boss). It's a combination of running and not dying and somehow still damaging her...
I just finished The Missing Link. Incredible quality except for the glaring lack-of-an-ending.
Is it seriously too much to see your choices produce actual consequences? What's the point of even choosing who gets gassed if they're both functionally the same at the end? ugh
I don't feel cheated though, seeing as it was £2. Beat on give me deus ex difficulty, stealth playthrough. Was easier than I expected.
how do you save both?
EDIT: as far as I know, it seems to be a problem with DirectX 11. So maybe turning that off might fix it, if it's on and you don't want to go into registry files.
Oh, killing the soldiers in the prologue counts in the pacifist achievement...
Well... guess I can start killing people now.
The bosses in this game makes me want to break my PC. It's so hard especially if you've been playing as a stealthy character with 0 health.
I wish they would release a DLC that completely reworked the boss fights so that they could be fought with any playstyle.
I wish you could just use sticks and stones in bossfights like in the first game
turret down, and baited Jaron into the turret, then made him uncloak to where the sentry starts unloading into him. Takes him down quickly.
Once you get the Typhoon, the boss fights are easy as piss. The third one, I just used the laser rifle since it shoots through walls. Just took potshots at him to bring down his health until I could nail him with the typhoon.
there's like no point at all in investing in more power cells.
why the fuck did they make it so only one power cell regenerated.
It's not pointless, it's just much less useful than you think it'd be.
Ah yes, the boss fights. I was actually thinking how to make them more like they were in the first game. Unfortunately, I so far only figured out the first one.
For Barrett somewhere before the fight you would actually learn that he ordered his men to take out Dutchman in Hengsha (maybe even learning Belltower is behind it). Either from overhearing a conversation, radio or hacking a computer (something so every player acquires this info). The defeated Barrett would then confirm this information and gave you the exact location (the hotel).
Now for the fight itself.
The first option is quite simple, throw a flashbang and go right for the elevator.
The second option is to kill him with weapons, typhoon or the barrels, the animation then plays out like in the original game.
The third, non-lethal, option would either be stunning the shit out of him or now there would be a crane in arena holding a big crate. You would need to get him under it, stun him and drop it on him. This way Barrett is knocked out so he can't spill the beans but also stays alive.
If he stayed alive you would then had to fight/avoid him in the Alice Pod Gardens and then in the Belltower Port (or make him the boss in the Tai Yong Medical hangar - here you would be forced to kill him either by reprogramming the robots, your own weapons or knock him out with shitload of stun darts) thus removing/delaying the introduction of Narhari Kahn.
If you knocked him out in the first fight, you would need to search for more clues in Hengsha, no objective marker from the start.
In the hangar, they could add some EMP security protocol than once activated fries everything in the hangar, thus destroying the robots and either killing or knocking out Barrett.
there are precautions you can take for pretty much every boss fight to make it extremely easier.
like with rhianna in the server room if you have the anti emp aug you'll have an easy time. if you don't update your firmware when the glitch happens they wont be able to shut off your augs during the boss fight
I wish they would make it more obvious
Hidden ebooks holding the information about bosses, news articles about The new chip failing for some people would make the game much more immersive and would be really helpful
i actually think it's pretty cool the first time around if you don't cheat and look ahead and just make decisions based on your own judgement.
so when they try to pull some shit on you and you either came prepared or not it creates a unique experience.
i swear i didn't update my chip out of sure laziness, like i was just about to get on the tram or something and could have made a detour but i was like fuck it what's the worst that can happen if i'm still allowed to continue without it.
I thought it was fishy as fuck so I didn't get it.
That one bitch, I forget her name, smugly presses the switch - as Jensen just sorta looks around for a few seconds before returning the smug back and making her freak out. You also don't get affected in the boss fight as such. I think it affects the following cutscene, too, where Megan doesn't have to switch out Jensen's chip due to not having one of the freakout ones. Beyond that, nothing else occurs due to not going with it.
Just completed The Missing Link and it was excellent
I forgot to check out The Equipment Quinn leaves for you at the end and didn't finish quinns rocket launcher sidequest , did I miss out on anything interesting?
I struggled so bad with the boss fights on my first playthrough ages ago. Played it again this time and just blitzed them. Stocked up rockets and a rocket launcher for Barrett. Yelena was a bit more of a problem, but I had the EMP shielding thing so it was basically just because I suck at avoiding her.
Jaron was the easiest boss of them all though, I had a grenade launcher at the time so I literally just bombarded him with 4-5 grenades from the start and he didn't even have a chance to move.
Ok since I finished the missing link the only deus ex game I haven't played is the invisible war
Wish me luck
