Search and Destroy Choices and Best Choice

Saving Takemura

Choice Outcome
Go Back for Takemura You can go back for Takemura the way you came in through a slightly hidden hole in the wall. This will save Takemura, but the fight is hard as it is a cramped hallway.
Leave the Building You can leave the building right away after falling down. This will end the mission quickly, but Takemura will die.

Best Choice

It is best to save Takemura as this is the only way to get The Devil ending achievement. Read more on our guide to all endings, but be warned of spoilers!

Tips and Strategies

How To Save Takemura

First off, you have to enter the hole in the wall to your left, at the end of the corridor you wake up in. It's mildly hidden but it will be in the room to your left.

Next proceed forward through it to find the stairwell you entered from. Simply go up the way you did and find the same apartment you knocked on. There will be a handful of enemies shooting at Takemura who will be inside. Once you rescue him, simply exit the building to continue.
