** Getting the [[LevelDrain Factory Zero]] achievement certainly qualifies. The soldiers have [[HeavilyArmoredMook armor]], [[MoreDakka guns]], [[HumongousMecha box guards]], [[LaserSight laser sights]], [[InsecurityCamera alarm systems]], [[ZergRush vastly superior numbers]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking locked doors]]. The only thing Adam really has going for him is [[CombatPragmatist his own resourcefulness]] and the ability to [[MegatonPunch take someone down in one hit]], the latter of which he can usually only do once every thirty to sixty seconds; not much help if he's against more than one person. It's ''more than enough''. Scared of Jensen? Of course. FearIsTheAppropriateResponse.

*** Made into an even bigger CrowningMomentOfAwesome if you have the CASIE. Jensen, using his enhanced intuition, realises that [[spoiler:Darrow is genetically incompatible with the augmentation technology he invented and [[TheResenter despises the world because of it]]. He then proceeds to [[IShallTauntYou mock]] the old man with it until he breaks down.]]

** Heck, even Eliza seems to agree that with this ending. [[spoiler: The other three endings have her say "So be it, then" in a resigned tone. The above ending? "We have little time left, Adam. [[HeartwarmingMoments And might I say, it has been a pleasure...]]"]]

* Using the Typhoon can be one. There's nothing quite like ending a boss battle in the first second or wiping out a giant robot the moment it deploys.

Option A: [[spoiler:redirect the gas to kill hundreds of innocent civilians who were abducted by Belltower for their experiments]]. Option B: [[spoiler:redirect the gas to kill a whistleblower who will get everyone at Belltower arrested]]. What to do? [[spoiler:[[TakeAThirdOption Option C: discover the hidden gas valve and shut it off, saving everyone.]]]] ''Everyone'' proceeds to congratulate and praise you for this, [[VillainRespect even Burke]].

'''???:''' Obaldet! [[spoiler:The toxicity level is dropping!]] You found a way to save everyone, bratan!\\
'''Burke:''' You're clever, I'll give you that. Most men aren't capable of seeing beyond the choice in front of them.\\
'''Quinn:''' ...that trick you pulled with [[spoiler:the gas]]--fucking brilliant work, that was.


*** Taken UpToEleven with [[spoiler:[[ThatOneBoss Jaron Namir]]]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v1X5F0d58I here]]. Spam the takedown button ''juuust'' as he mantles a wall and it's a OneHitKO. In the Director's Cut, time it just a he decloaks after throwing a grenade and you can lay him out with [[Manga/OnePunchMan ONE PUNCH]].

* Gaining the support of a die-hard fanbase already [[BrokenBase disillusioned]] by [[VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar Invisible War]]? Impressive. Gaining the approval of the infamously hard-to-please [[ImageBoards /v/]] with [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity a leaked demo?]] ''Astounding.''

** The first battle against Zeke Sanders, especially given the fact that at this point you ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything probably]]) don't have the CASIE aug: you're literally arguing with someone based entirely on your own personal ability to read their actions, body language and personality without any of the assistance like the persuasion bar or the personality summary. Talking down a hostage-taker with no assistance while the hostage is sobbing and crying and the unhinged criminal keeps periodically jabbing his gun into the hostage's head is one of the most intense experiences - and most rewarding when you win.

* Seeing your GenreSavvy instincts [[spoiler:about the biochip]] pay off in a cutscene where [[spoiler:Zhao Yun Ru attempts to subdue you via it]] and watching it [[NoSell do you no harm whatsoever.]] Made even better by Jensen's IronicEcho.

Added DiffLines:

** And then following it up by taking Zeke Sanders alive, because you need the information he has. Even if you picked a lethal weapon from Sarif's selection at the start of the mission, you can still fight him, take him alive (hit him with a non-lethal shot and then use a takedown), and keep Josie from getting killed.

** If the above isn't enough, then this certainly will be. "Achievement Unlocked: Good Soul. Against all odds, [[spoiler:you saved Faridah's life]]."
