I've recently moved onto the second major hub area in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. So far, I haven't come across anyplace as safe as my apartment in Detroit. I don't feel like lugging a rocket launcher with me everywhere - is there a safe place I can stow extra gear, or can I drop it anywhere and it'll be there when I return later?

I'm not sure your apartment in Detroit is safer than any other non-restricted area. If anything, your apartment is a worse place to store items since its out of your way most of the time. –  user9983 Aug 27 '11 at 23:18
    
I'm not 100% sure if they will be remain when moving from city to city but int he same city, yes. –  user9983 Aug 28 '11 at 3:51
    
That's fine for now. If you'd like to post your comment as an answer, I'll accept it and we can clean this up a bit. –  Gauzy Aug 28 '11 at 21:11

  • City hubs with sidequests are temporarily safe to "store" things in, until you leave the city hub, and the game always warns you when you do this about how side-quests will be un-completable.
  • No other mission area is safe. Sometimes the game tells you you won't be able to return to an area, but don't count on it. If nothing else, there are some one-way elevator rides, etc.

I left a fully upgraded silenced pistol on the floor of my apartment in front of the "stash" area and when I returned, it was nowhere to be found (much to my intense rage). Luckily I had an old save file that still had it. My recommendation is to leave ammo and health and non-essentials there, or to just sell them. Any weapon you really like should probably stay in your inventory, or make sure you save a file before you leave it on the floor.

That's very odd. I left some weapons and ammo on the floor of my apartment, and when I returned back to Detroit after Hengsha things were exactly as I left them. Not sure why that wouldn't always be the case. –  Adeese Aug 31 '11 at 17:50

If you ever get a "are you sure" prompt during the main quests that mentions side-quests will become un-completable, that means the hub is either going to be inaccessible after that point or else going to be "reset" for new plot conditions. –  Darien Aug 29 '11 at 21:13

Items you place in your apartment in Detroit do remain even after leaving for China. –  Adeese Aug 29 '11 at 21:37
