Deus Ex: Human RevolutionSmash the StateThe Smash the State achievement in Deus Ex: Human Revolution worth 15 pointsHelp Officer Nicholas take out the trash.

Right after you speak with Bill Taggart and get the next mission to find Isaias Sandoval, you will be leaving the convention center. As soon as you walk out the big double doors, Nicholas will be waiting for you. You cannot miss this, it instantly jumps you into a cutscene with him. He asks for your help in finding Jacob and defusing a bomb he might have.

Accept the mission and Nicholas will tell you Jacob might be In the Sewers, the Metro Tunnel, or the Alley. Leave Nicky and head for the sewers infront of the Police Station. Once you enter the sewers, you will hear the beeping noised indicating all the mines he has placed in your way. Shoot them and continue on.

After a very short distance you will come across a turret and Jacob. I charged the turret and hit Jacob with the stun gun, to get the extra bonus for not killing him. Head around the corner to the left and tap into his computer there. Don't worry about time, there is no time limit. Disarm the turrets, then follow your next waypoint to the location of the bomb.

Now at this spot you can also get the achievement for making a lucky guess at the passcode. The passcode is 0000. Enter that number in and the achievement will pop right away.

Head back to Nicky and tell him that the mission is complete and Jacob is either dead or unconscious. After talking with him, the achievement will pop and you can continue on.
