    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Achievement/Trophy Guide - Samizdat

    When you finish mission 5 and after you have finished with smiley, on your way out of the underground base you will be stopped by a man who needs your help with some hackers, accept the quest and head down to building 33.

    On the top floor of the building you need to hack your way into the apartment then the computer and access the messanger tab to talk to the hacker on the other end. You need to choose the Inquire and Question options for the hacker to give you his location for the meet-up.

    Make your way over to question the hacker and he will ask for your help in repayment for leaving your guys alone. You must now sneak over the the bank on the otherside of town and get into the CEO's office. The best way to do this is to use the cloak augment to pass through the laser grid and past the guards. When you reach the CEO's office you are looking for a folder containing information, this is behind the puzzle you see on the table.
    Press X or Sqaure to raise and hold X or Square to rotate. The puzzles soloution is;
    Raise > Turn > Raise > Turn > Turn > Raise

    Once you get inside the secret office hack the safe and steal the folder from it and return to K, the hacker. He will then ask you to help him with a sat dish so follow the waypoint marker to the dish and take the lift next to the building up to the roof and do so. After hacking it you will get the achievement/trophy and a new side quest will unlock later in the game.

    This achievement requires completing the side mission named Samizdat.

    To get this mission talk to Chang, who is upstairs in the TF29 headquarters. He will ask you to check out an apartment. Break in, and hack the terminal. Use the messenger app to find out where the Samizdat is based, and head into the sewers.

    Talk to K, and agree to help him dig up dirt on Picus. Head to the Palisades Bank, and carefully make your way to the CEO's office, knocking out guards and deactivating security as you make your way to the third floor. Once in the CEO's office, find the Water Report tucked in the bottom of the desk on the right, and then head back to K.

    Head to the transmitter and hack it, and the mission will be complete, and the achievement will unlock.

    Here is my Video for the Samizdat Achievement containing No Alerts and No Kills whilst inside the bank. To obtain the mission, simply speak to Chang inside the TF29 Headquarters in Prague.

    Thanks for watching!

    NegativeCreep08There is also a hidden room in the CEOs office with a dossier about the airliner crash that will count, as well as a praxis kit and other goodies. I couldn't figure out the mechanical puzzle by the fake door to get in, but there is a vent hidden behind the left hand TV (you'll need the jump augmentation to get up there). Go through it, into another room and look up to see a vent. Go through this and you'll end up in the safe room
