Default Is it possible to finish Deus Ex IW without killing anyone?

There are a million threads out there on how the rocks, or sucks. If we can stay on track here and figure out how to Finish without killing folks, it would be cool.
Even if we have to trap some folks, or let the greasels kill them, that is still basically a win without personally killing anyone, and maybe even using a scramble grenade on some bots is fair also.
What are your thoughts?

Yes. It's VERY possible. The developers saw the playtesters do things that they hadn't even dreamed of to get through the game. I'm not sure exactly how you'd do the last level without killing anyone, but the rest is fairly straightforward. There's a LOT of hiding involved, though.

Edit: Also, you will require non-lethal takedowns at times. Baton and riot prod.

I have a freind who is gong to try to go through without interacting with any bad guys: I.E. no even non-lethal takedowns, none of them realize anything has happened until the end of the game . . .

I'm not sure if it is possible, tho.

The baton and riot prod suck so much, I can barely get 2 peopel out without loosign all health.
Is there a way to improve your skill as there was in the last version? or better batons or something?

Well, you get attacked by folks from the Order early on at Tarsus academy,and it is almosy imposible to get around them without at least shoting pison gas container to stop them or knockign them out with the baton.

Yeah, there is. At level 3 strength, you can bash any normal person out with the baton in one hit.

What about throwing a scarmble grenade at an enemy robot, making it turn on the bad guys?
Is that considered a kill or not since "Alex" did nto directly do it.
