    As part of normal story progression, Adam will meet up with the Fixer as he prepares to complete his mission. To unlock the achievement, Adam must prevent the Fixer from being killed and then talk to him. Regardless of the choice made during that final conversation with the Fixer, the achievement will unlock immediately following the conversation.

    If the Fixer is killed, quickly press cn_start and load the latest auto-save. This will allow you to redo the sequence, hopefully, with the Fixer surviving. There are two ways to prevent the Fixer's Death. One is to persuade the would-be killer to put down his gun. That can only be done if Adam has the use of his augments. The other way is to neutralize the would-be killer--lethally or non-lethally.

    The final segment of the game leading up to the final encounter with the Fixer, begins with Adam releasing Mejia from solitary. Adam must turn off the transport tracking system and override two anti-aircraft turrets. When he accomplishes those objectives, he can proceed to his departure point where he encounters the Fixer--unlocking the achievement if he can keep Fixer alive and have a conversation with him.

    Once Adam turns off the transport tracking system, he activates an optional side objective. The below two videos show Adam proceeding from solitary, accomplishing his tasks, and unlocking the achievement nonlethally. The first video shows the optional side mission and also includes a decision point at the 8'40" mark where those that are not interested in the optional side mission can go directly to the second video. Doing so, skips the side mission and continues straight to the achievement:




    The first video picks up the action from solitary confinement. The video that accompanies the below solution shows one of the paths to solitary if required for reference:

    AllgorhythmI'm doing a video walkthrough for A Criminal Past for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This is a two part video, the seventh of eight videos that, when played sequentially, will provide a complete walkthrough unlocking all the achievements in the process. This video is preceded by the one for the Smooth Like Soap achievement and is followed by a short video for the game completion achievements--Code of Conduct, Winners Don't Use Drugs (or Biocells), and A Criminal Past.

    Gilbert PrimeYou can get this achievement without augs and have the option of both of them leaving on the VTOL with you.

    You need to have found all 5 of these pocket secretaries:
    "Schedule Change: Mejia, Oscar" (located in the Processing Area)
    "Recovered Turret Command Logs" (located on level 5 of the Tower in Automated Security)
    "RE: This week's list" (On Stenger's body in the Infirmary)
    "Worthmuller" (located under the fallen bookshelf on level 2 of the Admin building)
    "Audio Transcript" (In Stenger's office safe)

    The first 2 are also needed for the "Objection!" achievement. If you have all 5, you have the information to Challenge, Hold, and then Blackmail Mejia into submission. I prefer this to the long winded spiels Adam makes when using the CASIE aug.

    If you're looking for a third possibility (one that isn't strictly picking a side), make sure to keep at least one or two stun gun/ tranquillizer bullets with you. Side with the contact instead of the Fixer, but instantly stun gun the contact before he can shoot the fixer. This allows you to keep your no-kill run, and have a conversation with the Fixer, and also have the smug satisfaction that you found another way ;)
