Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Achievements

Apex Predator

You performed a takedown on Burke without being detected.   

To get this achievement, you need to perform a takedown on Burke without him going hostile. As soon as the cutscene with Burke ends, immediately take cover. Wait until the sniper on the left catwalk moves away, and then sneak past the mech until you reach a container with two ammo boxes in it. Turn around, and climb up on the metal support, then jump to the container. Turn right and jump down, and then immediately take cover. Sneak past the guard and the turret and go to the ladder, then wait until the heavy that is on the ceiling of the outpost that Burke is in turns away from you and climb up the next ladder. Perform a non-lethal takedown on the heavy (so you don't alert Burke and his guards) and then jump through the small hole below you. Burke will be staring out of the window, and you can just sneak up behind him and perform a takedown on him.

I got it even though a guard saw one of the corpses I left behind... AND he heard me drop to the floor while cloaked.
as long as *he* doesn't fire at you, you should get the achievement.

I tried getting to Burke couple of times but he'd just somehow notice me when I didnt have any augs enabled. The third time he didnt apparently hear or see me coming to his left side and I melee'd him. In the process of getting to him, I only caused an alarm once.

so the map/radar has to be clear ? does he have to be dead or just k o ?

cos i've not popped it with alarmed status and he hasn't shot me that i know off i also didn't kill any guards only k o and left the box guard alone. i was spotted though so did get hostile status.

Create a new save, used the cloak aug so they can't see me, luckly I saved my energy bars, done a takedown, achivement popped, then re-load for Factory Zero.

Save before you enter the boss area. Get stealth aug and get this achievement. Then reload and do it again without augs
