After finishing a couple of quests, you are directed to go to your apartment. If I have items in my inventory that I want to keep but don't want to carry around with me everywhere, is it safe to stash these items somewhere in my apartment?

In Fallout 3, shortly into the main quest there you also gain access to your own house, where the game indicates that it is safe for you to keep items there. Does your apartment in Deus Ex: Human Revolution work the same way?

I don't have a real answer for this - I don't know if items remain where you left them when you change areas. What I do know is that I haven't been back yet after leaving Detroit. I wouldn't rely much on the idea. –  Ian Pugsley Aug 25 '11 at 12:58
@Ian My latest save is in my apartment, with some additional weapons on the ground. Guess I can just see if they're still there when I get back after my next mission. –  Adeese Aug 25 '11 at 16:30
I'm only part-way through the story, but I was also tempted and decided not to risk is. The DX3 development team seems faithful to DX1 in so many ways that (1) I'm sure I won't be able to get to my apartment at will, and (2) even when I can, I wouldn't be surprised if some or all of the contents change in some way. –  Feral Chimp Aug 25 '11 at 16:57
Spoiler alert - you do get back into your apartment, lol. –  Ian Pugsley Aug 26 '11 at 2:25
I checked my apartment after doing some more quests and advancing the main plot (but haven't left Detroit yet), and my items are still there. I stopped playing just as I left Detroit for another area for the main quest, so I'll check again once I get back to the hub. –  Adeese Aug 26 '11 at 2:40

Yes you can. I dropped a few things in the apartment the first time I dropped by. A few locations later and a trip back to Detroit and those items are still there.

Be mindful that you don't always have access to the apartment though.

I can confirm this. After the first main quest mission away from Detroit, I returned to my apartment and my items were exactly as I left them. –  Adeese Aug 27 '11 at 19:02

I'm still in act 1, but I've left a lot of stuff in my apartment. It all seems to be fine, so I may change my answer later.

Personally, I would have loved a storage locker or something. ;)

Update: I'm back in Detroit and all the stuff I left in my apartment is still there. That said though, there have been some interesting resets outside of the place. Broken walls fixed and moveable objects returned to their initial positions.

Also works with other locations.

I killed the punks behind the gas station gunshop, and dropped my tranq for a shotgun. I got tired of it, sold it, and came back. Tranq was still there.
