Deus Ex: Human Revolution Achievements

The Desk Job

You convinced Wayne Haas to let you into the morgue.


As you have to come to the station to get to the morgue for your main mission, so this is the time to obtain this achievement. It also helps with the 'Motherly Ties' and 'Sentimental Value' achievements. Seeing as if you enter anywhere without speaking to Wayne first and him letting you in, the police in the area will go hostile.

As you enter the police station head to the front desk and make your save here. Now speak to your old friend Wayne Haas. You and him go way back but he has some demons haunting him that are stopping him from letting you inside. While talking to him choose the following dialogue options:

  • Absolve
  • Absolve
  • Plead
  • Absolve

In some cases, you can choose Absolve for all. If it doesn't unlock the first time try this route.

It almost seemed like his responses had some randomness to them. I was told to come back later, so I reloaded, and the SAME conversation menu selections had him moving away from cooperation. Lucky for me I picked up the influencer augmentation...

The social enhancer makers achievements like this one really easy. It basically tells ou what to say to manupulate people. I got this one early and it really helps.

@2 I had three saves going, and i still missed it. If you come in from underground you go through the morgue before even finding this dude.

Will have to be playthrough 2 for me

Go through the front doors of the police station and talk to the desk worker. Wayne Haas is his name, as you can see.

if you use the casie aug and use the pills against him he's waiting for you in the lobby of the chiron building towards the end and tries to kill you. But if you just do absolve, crush, absolve, absolve he'll let you through and when you meet him in the lobby use absolve, and you offer him a job and he doesnt try to kill you

I don't think people seem to realize that there's no one correct answer. One method might work for one guy and not work for another. That's just how the game works.
