    In order to reach the point where you can work towards this achievement, you will have become quite proficient in Breach Mode. So, this guide is not going to dwell on the basics of reading maps and clearing servers. There are many different viable approaches. I have outlined my strategies in guides for the Data Disciple, Expert, & Master achievements. Moreover, I have an in-depth video guide for the Data Detective achievement that illustrates the tactics and strategies that I used throughout Breach including https://www.trueachievements.com/Deus-Ex-Mankind-Divided/dlc...

    There are more than three Data Transport servers. They are clearly identified as Data Transport servers and their 'name plates' are of a different color. Use cn_RT to roam the maps and check the servers by pressing cn_A.

    You can jump with the sphere but you cannot climb with it. You can open doors by holding the data sphere in front of you. Sometimes, you must throw the sphere. The key to success is knowing where to throw the data sphere once you acquire it. You cannot climb with it so, when climbing is required, you must first throw the data sphere and then run after it.

    You can use cloak when carrying the data sphere. Nevertheless, the data sphere will not allow you to be completely undetectable as you are without it. The data sphere will trigger alarms as when it passes through a laser. So, if you have to go through a laser grid, you might have to throw the data sphere between the lasers.

    Energy consumption is higher when using augments while carrying the data sphere. So, augments like cloak, focus, special vision, have to be used more sparingly than normal. Since it is unlikely that you will be shooting your way through the server, you can offset the increased energy drain by equipping yourself with an empty weapon configured with the ability to reduce energy consumption while the clip is empty. This ability is a class B ability and is not uncommon as a reward in various packs.

    Time is of the essence. If you leave the data sphere too long, it will warp back to its starting position. Despite this apparent complexity, the data transport servers (in my opinion) tend to be simpler than other servers. Scout a path to the data sphere that is clearly depicted on your map and plan for the return trip throwing the sphere where necessary. Avoid or evade enemies while ignoring everything else.

    Some servers offer multiple breach points. If so, you can toggle between the alternative breach points by pressing left and right on the D pad. In a high rise server, a breach point lower than the data sphere is more advantageous than one that is above it. So, in such a case, if you have alternative breach points, use the one that will make data transport easier for you.

    AllgorhythmThanx for your observation - you are absolutely corrrect. I have udated the solution appropriately and now refer to climbing rather than jumping.

    RDSReplaying servers does not count, just for the record.

    AllgorhythmEven if you clear two servers with the same name on different networks? I did S11_EMBARGO on the Ghost Network. When I went to Tier 4A, it showed a server by the same name, S11_EMBARGO, and it showed it as uncleared. When I cleared it on Tier 4A, it had slight differences. Since I'd already gotten the achievements for Ghost, Picus, and Tier 4 servers; I couldn't draw any conclusions about how it was credited.

    AllgorhythmThanks for the info. I take it you qualified to unlock the achievement but completing a data transfer node in the Ghost network did not cause the achievement to unlock.

    MugenKairoYou are correct good sir! I've completed at least an additional 3 in ghost servers but still no pop yet.

    MugenKairoAny suggestions on completing the data transport mode in Network 2A S23_REBAR? I have to throw the sphere over a void but cannot ever make the aim... a video by the master would be helpful... *wink*

    MugenKairoDisregard: Just managed to get this one. Falling from a great height makes it really hard to recover the sphere.

    AllgorhythmCongrats! I didn't like this one either.

    ParadoxReal8Hell yeah! This one always fall on me too. The trick is to do no jump once you have it but just drop down and from behind its better. That way the ball won't go into the void.
