Deus Ex: Human Revolution Doctorate Achievement & Trophy video guide

Detroit City contd.

Vestibular Augmentation and Enhanced Agility Factoring - During the “Stopping the Transmission” mission, you will enter Derelict’s Row to complete the objective. Just before you enter the door where the objective marker is, there will be a building to the right side with windows along the ground level on the other side of some containers. Deal with the three gang bangers inside through the windows and the eBook will be on top of a barrel in the center of the basement room.

Nano-Augmentation – Pipedream, or Theory for the Future - This eBook can be found during the sidequest “One Good Turn Deserves Another” which will only be received if you saved the hostages during the Sarif Manufacturing mission. If you did, head to Greg Thorpes apartment by following the mission marker and look on the desk to the left inside the bedroom. The eBook will be right there, beside the bed. If the hostages didn’t make it because you were busy futzing around, then you can still head to the building (the one with Detective Chase at the desk- the southernmost Downtown Apartment) and head up 4 flights of stairs and make a right. Without the sidequest however, you’ll have to hack the level 2 door to enter.


The Visual Cortex 2.0 – The Eye Redesigned - This eBook can be found during your visit to the LIMB Clinic. After talking to the doctor, go through the door on the right side, at the end of the waiting room area. Walk down the hallway about halfway and on the right side will be a cart with the eBook sitting on it.


FEMA Detention Center

Blurring the Boundaries Between Man and Machine - Once you take the long elevator ride down in the FEMA detention center, your mission objective marker will be to the far south on the map. In between the elevator where you arrive and that mission marker is a Men’s room. Just to the North East of that Men’s room is a locked room that needs a Level 2 hack to enter. Do so and the next eBook is directly in front of you when you enter.


The Use of Neuromuscular Facilitration Systems - This eBook is found during the mission “Hunting the Hacker.” After you infiltrate the penthouse, you will need to go to the Hive and speak to Tong. To get access to him and to this eBook, talk to the bartender in the lounge and use the options Pinpoint, Advise, and then Pinpoint again. Once in his office, look to the right side of the room to find it on a table.


The Science and Theory behind Cochlear Implants - When doing Side Mission “Bar Tab” for Bobby Bao that you get after speaking with Tong, head to the rooftops of the Downtown Apartments to hack the first communication relay. Once there, head around the corner to the staircase, and follow it down to the 2nd floor. Head to the only apartment there and hack the level 1 door.Inside the apartment, you will find the eBook there directly ahead of you.


Invasive Brain Machine Interfaces - This eBook is located near the previous one. After you make your way back up to the rooftop by taking the stairs again, head up the next set of stairs directly in front of you and then make a right. Go up another set of stairs there and there will be a door on your left. Hack it (level 1) and the eBook will be inside at the far end of the room.


Optical Enhancement Functionality - After Speaking to Bobby Boa at The Hive, turn around and head to the exit door that is on the right. Before going out of the bar however, go through the door to the left to enter a back hallway. Once in the hallway, open the first door on the left to find a room with a safe, two computers and the eBook.


Electrogravitic Technology Applications - When you reach the Alice Garden Pods for either the mission “Hunting the Hacker” or the sidequest “Shanghai Justice”, make your way to the left side of the pods, to section 1 and look for pod number 143.Inside there will be another eBook waiting for you.


Understanding Vision (Part One) - When you are at the Hengsha Court Gardens, and you sneak to the elevator to ride up to Van Bruggen’s apartment, don’t go up the elevator just yet. There is a door directly to the left of the hallway that leads to the elevator, that is locked with a level 1 security system and hacking it with the Belltower guards around can be tricky. If you need to take out all the guards in the area, go for it, but once you enter the apartment, look to the kitchen on the left and you’ll find the eBook there.

    Just in time for me to begin my third playthrough. You guys are too good sometimes.

    Thanks for this! I never got this even on two different playthroughs (and on the second one I actully made a good effort to seek them out). Interesting note: according to Steam, this is the game's least-achieved achievement, even below the surprisingly-infuriating Pacifist. Only 0.3% of all players have it. This guide should raise that quite a bit, hopefully :)

    Talk about infuriating: I was chasing Pacifist and Foxiest of the Hounds on my second run and somehow only made it out with Pacifist. No idea how I screwed that one up.
