Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough - Tarsus Academy

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 1. The opening cutscene is a winner, for sure. A terrorist with a nanite detonator destroys the Tarsus Academy in Chicago. Well, actually, all of Chicago is destroyed!

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 2. You and the other students are safely whisked away to the Seattle Tarsus Academy.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Next, select your difficulty, interface color and portrait. This walkthrough is played at the "Realistic" difficulty setting.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 4. You begin in your dorm room at the Seattle Tarsus Academy. Grab the binoculars from the shelf ahead and check the chest lower-right for a map of the Seattle Tarsus Complex.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 5. Instead of a tutorial, instructional notes like this will guide you through the user interface (UI).

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 6. Take a moment to appreciate the view from your window. Now is also a good time to customize graphics/sound and control options. These options are saved as part of your "Saved Games" and will revert to their original settings if you re-start your game.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 7. Approach this holocomm unit to receive a message from Academy director Leila Nassif.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Dr. Nassif briefs you on the current situation and instructs you to check with classmate Billie Adams in apartment 454. The door behind you opens and you feel the ground tremble -- nothing to worry about you are told.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Take a look around the apartment. This data cube holds a note from Billie in room 454.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 10. Leave the apartment and step into the hallway. This explosion to your left kills the SSC guard.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 11. Talk to the nearby janitor. The death of the guard has him pretty shaken up.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 12. Here is your objective -- Billie's residence, apartment 454. Select (default right-mouse) the intercom and Billie will let you in.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 13. Talk to Billie. She gives you the elevator code and your next objective -- talk to Dr. Nassif in recreation.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 14. Select the public terminal to learn the latest news. Proceed toward the elevator visible in the background.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 15. Talk to the guard before selecting the indicated keypad. You will automatically enter the key code given to you by Billie earlier.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Note the authentic elevator music inside the lift. Select this keypad to ride the elevator to recreation.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 17. Approach this window to speak with Leila Nassif. She gives you two more objectives: meet Klara and meet Leo.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Continue down the hallway and speak to Klara. She doesn't seem too concerned about the tremors.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 19. You'll find Leo Jankowski on the nearby running track. The dialogue options you have here are of little consequence.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 20. Following your conversation with Leo, the facility comes under attack. Dr. Nassif directs you to your equipment locker. You can take the stairs in the hallway or just jump over the railing as seen here. The locker room is directly ahead.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 21. Inside Leo's locker are two ammo clips and some food. Inside your locker (Alex) is a pistol, a baton, a multitool and a medkit. After you open your locker, the facility's power is cut and Dr. Nassif directs all students to evacuate via the elevator in her office.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 22. Klara and Billie's lockers are locked. You can use your multitool to open either of them, but not both. Inside Klara's locker is an ammo clip and an energy cell. Inside Billie's locker is a spider bomb and a pack of cigarettes. Note that multitools in DX:IW serve double-duty as lockpicks and are very valuable. My preference here is to save the multitool.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 23. Talk to this guard. It's time to make your first real decision. Like my Deus Ex walkthrough, this walkthrough will be taking a pacifist approach. After first selecting the dialogue option, "Any more pointers?" I choose, "Okay, I'll get out without being seen."

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Crouch to avoid being seen as you head for the indicated doorway. Use the pillars for cover.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 25. Ascend the stairs and talk to Billie. Time for your first conspiracy. Billie tells you to grab whatever biomods you can and check your apartment for proof of Tarsus' treachery.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 26. Ride the elevator back to Tarsus apartments. Next to the fallen guard is a stun prod, an ammo clip, a pistol and a flash bomb.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 27. Talk to the SSC guard ahead. If you respond, "Do whatever you want..." he will kill the Seeker up ahead. We're going for a no-kill scenario, so respond as indicated. Follow Billie's advice and proceed into apartment 453.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 28. Here's the vent that Billie told you about. Before entering, grab the EMP grenade beside the bed, and check the chest to the left for 100 credits, a combat knife and an ammo clip.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 29. Swipe this multitool on the right before advancing through the grate on the left.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Once inside the next apartment, you'll find another multitool on this counter.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Continue past this door on the right, careful to avoid the Seeker patrolling outside.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Spot another multitool to the right of this chest. Inside the chest is a medkit and a concussion proximity mine.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 33. This holocomm unit has a message from Dr. Nassif.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 34. Exit to the hallway. Here I bring down the Seeker non-lethally with the stun prod. He'll drop an ammo clip and a pistol.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Re-enter your apartment, 451.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Billie has a bit of a surprise in store for you.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 37. It's a duck blind! Just like the opening of Star Trek:Insurrection, and STTNG: Who Watches the Watchers.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 38. You can climb up the wall in the kitchen (default: press and hold 'h') to reach this ledge where you'll find a boltcaster.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 39. Proceed through this hole in the shower.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 40. Climb over the wall to the biomaterials laboratory.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 41. Approach these biomod canisters and Dr. Nassif explains their function.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 42. The biomod system in DX:IW is significantly different than in Deus Ex, and I found it to be confusing at first. There is no distinction any more between an augmentation canister and an augmentation upgrade canister. The same biomod canister can be used to install a new ability or to upgrade an existing one. Each of the five available slots on the right has three modifications that can fit -- two standard (blue) modifications plus a single (red) black market modification. Also, biomods can now be uninstalled in case you change your mind. I chose to use these three canisters to implement the Cloak, Biotox Attack Drone and Speed Enhancement modifications.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 43. Now that your biomods are installed, you can activate your light to see better (default F1). Grab the multitool from this counter and read the three data cubes to learn more about biomods. A fourth data cube can be found adjacent to the nearby holocomm unit.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Pass through the doorway and speak with this scientist. She cautions that the camera ahead will target the turret on you.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Avoiding this camera is very easy. Just wait until it is pointing to the right, then dart up the stairs. For an extra challenge, grab the energy cell where indicated. You can use the other crates for cover. Once upstairs, continue avoiding the camera as it can still spot you through the glass.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Talk to these scientists at the top of the stairs. You receive a new goal - protect them from a new wave of terrorists.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 47. Here's your first real challenge as a pacifist player. My suggestion is to cloak, equip your stun prod, and wait in ambush for the two seekers.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 48. Return to this scientist and receive a silencer as your reward.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Speak with both scientists repeatedly to learn as much as you can. Just as in the original Deus Ex, NPCs will often divulge more information if you speak to them multiple times.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 50. Continue down the corridor to this scientist, who needs you to find a way around the gold laser beams ahead. Gold beams slice flesh, red beams trip alarms, and green beams trigger gas bombs.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 51. Grab the ammo clip from this cabinet. The data cube above holds some background on the Dentons.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 52. Don't miss this multitool.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 53. Use a multitool to unlock this cabinet holding your first black market biomod. You'll also find a medkit inside. Above is a data cube with some information on black market biomods.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 54. Here I use the black market canister to install the Spy Drone augmentation, which can be used both for recon and to disable bots/cameras/turrets with its EMP attack. A level 3 spy drone will knock its victims unconscious.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 55. Bypassing the gold beams (for free) is as simple as sliding this barrel out of the way and entering the vent beyond. Grab the multitool waiting for you inside.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 56. Upstairs you'll find this cabinet where you can trade a multitool for 100 credits and an energy cell.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 57. Return back down the stairs and proceed through the door straight ahead.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 58. As ominous as this looks, it's actually friendly. Meet your first medbot.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 59. Activate your cloak before proceeding through this doorway -- two seekers patrol here.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 60. A camera will spot you and you may be heard, but as long as you stay cloaked you'll remain safe. Grab this multitool.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 61. Unfortunately, the neural interface required for hacking is mutually exclusive to the cloak. For the hackers out there, here is your security computer terminal.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 62. Make your way up these stairs.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 63. Follow the EXIT signs and Lin-May Chen of the Order messages you. She gives you a new goal: visit the Order church in Lower Seattle.

Deus Ex: Invisible War Walkthrough Screenshot 64. Take the elevator to Upper Seattle to end the level.
