Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Confronting the Bomb-Maker walkthrough

The mission opens with a key decision: save Stanek's daughter or head to a bank vault where Janus claims there's information on The Orchid. If you want to see both outcomes, be sure to save before you get to the metro. You won't be able to save when you're faced with the decision.

Here's how to save Stanek's daughter. This takes you to the Capek Fountain Station.

Show the officer your papers once you arrive, and then meet Stanek at the waypoint. Stanek's daughter is inside the cult apartment complex. You have to find her. Some cultists are blocking part of the complex, which means you'll have to find another way in. The cultists may not look like much, but they're not messing around. If you get spotted in the restricted area, they'll open fire.

This stealth situation is pretty silly. There's a makeshift balcony that you can jump up to from the ground level. Jump to it and quickly crouch your way to cover. You won't be spotted if you do it fast enough. The goal is to get to the top of the complex, so head up.

On the second level, there's a hackable gate to the left. Hack it to gain access to the next stairwell. Vega is going to give you a hard time about not choosing the bank route. Ignore her and get to the waypoint.

There's a camera at the top of the next set of stairs. Wait for it to look to the left so you can head right. Stay crouched. You'll need to take out the four cultists in the room with the hole in the wall. Otherwise, they'll spot you while you try to hack the gate. There are four of them, and they are spread out enough to take them out quietly one at a time. Do that and then head to the hackable gate. Hack it and move up.

Now you're on the top floor. Head to the waypoint to meet Stanek's daughter. You'll have to analyze her conversation. Here are the dialog choices to defuse the situation.

  • Alpha
  • Omega
  • Alpha
  • Beta

Once she calms down, she'll stop the detonation process for the human bombs she was making. The best part: All of the cultists are under arrest, and you can safely leave the complex. The next part of the quest takes you to Davny Ctvrt.

Before you finish this mission, Vaclav gives you a call and tells you that he can fix up your aug system. This is a continuation of the side mission The Calibrator you did for him early on. Now is a good time to pay him a visit. Head to the side mission waypoint to speak to him.
