Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Achievements
Perform 50 takedowns within the same playthrough. (Civilians don't count.)

Just remember if you're going for one playthrough, you must only use none lethal takedowns (tap ). Doing so will not void the 'Pacifist' achievement and will also increase the counter for the achievement 'Consciousness is Over-rated'. 

Right from the first mission, you'll be introduced to how to take people out, so from here I'd recommend you try and get your 50 takedowns as and when you can. If you see an opportunity, then take it but don't rush. It's easier to do this achievement at the beginning of the game rather than later on when it could become more risky for you.

Can this be done with both lethal & non-lethal?

@#1, obivously, a takedown is when you just melee them, and this achievement is near story related when you are sneaking yet exploring.

Ok, thanks. That's what I thought, I can't be far from it then.

This is a fairly simple achievement for those who like to get close and personal.

Can you take-down the same enemy multiple times if his buddy keeps waking hime up?

i'm thinking this and the 100 knockouts is bugged, cos i got this first and then a few ko's later i got the 100 ko cheevo strange i only remember doing a few lethals maybe 5 max

so either i took out more 'civilians' who where hostile to me could be a reason

@6 - I got the same thing 1st run through. I'm sure I took many guards out with non-lethal weapons (which I'd assume adds to the 100 KO), but am very surprise I had not done 50 takedowns. My 2nd play through is stealthy, and I've literally taken out 95% of the DRB using takedowns. I'm hoping to get this achievement early this time around.

@6 If you were using tranq rifle and stun gun very much it's not surprising at all that you would get these 2 so close together...

@7 If you were actually doing a decent amount of takedowns you should have easily gotten this achievement in your first playthrough. I hope it's not glitched for you somehow. I haven't heard anything about that. Best of luck to ya man...
