Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Achievements

The Final Countdown

You showed millionaire Hugh Darrow that his logic was flawed.


While working your way through Panchaea, you'll eventually come to a hallway with a turret attached to the ceiling. When you arrive at this point, make your save. Now head past the turret and into the room where Hugh Darrow lies.

While having the conversation with Hugh, choose the following dialogue options to unlock the achievement:

  • Extrapolate
  • Critique
  • Appeal
  • Appeal

Important Note
Before you head down the elevator to broadcast the messages, make sure you have spoken to both David Sarif and William Taggart who are both on Panchaea. David can be located on in the southeast room on the -4th floor. Taggart will be in the middle north room on the 2nd floor.

I remember hearing something in a dev diary about the convos getting mixed up when you playthru each time to a certain degree to make replayability abit less boring, so there is no exact pattern of how to get this, i got it and his persuasion level was in the middle, just save beforehand and try your best, read the psyche profile that helped me.

I used "Extrapolate, Critique, Extrapolate, Extrapolate" and got the achievement...

Though, the conversation did not seem like it was going the way I wanted it to.

I'm playing on Give Me Deus Ex and I used,

*Activated my Pheromones

and that was all I had to do. I read a couple more of these comments and one said it didn't seem to be going the way he liked but the way I had done it, his persuasion level was at the high peak.

Oh, and flaming Ninja --- you're a queef. Quit posting those!!!

I extrapolated the hell out of him...ehh...but I got the achievement. I tried what the guide said at first which was "extrap, appeal, extrap, extrap" and that didnt work, so I just hit him 4 times in a row. It's different each time.

I went with extrapolate, appease, and then I think I was given the option to use my speech augment on him. I used the omega persuade and got the achievement.

He was completely defeated too; it felt good.

The achievement guide should be changed to point out that you cant give a set list of choices and expect it to work everytime for this douche. How come no one seems to be mentioning the CASIE either? Surely it's easier to just use that when you can (like 2 choices of replies into the convo I think).

I got this by using

Pheromones, Omega choice (think it was Pressure)

This one didn't make sense to me. I had the persuasion meter at its highest after the first two inputs, then it dropped down twice after the second two and I still got the achievements. I did Extrapolate, critique, extrapolate, critique.
