Buy one Plasmid or Tonic Slot at a Gatherer's Garden.

As you proceed through the game, you will occassionaly come across Gatherer's Garden vending machines. These machines allow you to spend ADAM you have aquired through harvesting with Little Sisters and killing Big Sisters. Simply purchase a Plasmid or Tonic slot upgrade from the machine to unlock this achievement. Throughout the game you will purchase many of these to increase your capabilities and as you do the cost of each slot will increase by a small amount.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP8WOOo=.jpgMax Plasmid Slots - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg

Each weapon has 3 upgrades that can be obtained, 2 basic weapon upgrades(i.e. Recoil reduction or Larger ammunition clips) and 1 final upgrade(i.e. Cluster Bombs or Heat Ammunition). Simply select the basic upgrade of your choice for the weapon of your choosing by highlighting it and pressing the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png button.

Successfully hack at least one of every type of machine.

Simply approach each machine from either the front or behind if it is attacking you and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png to start the hacking mini-game. The object here is to stop the needle in the green areas or if applicable the blue colored areas(Blue zones cause various effects, i.e. additional discounts, larger amounts of money in safes, or stronger security bots)by pressing the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png button, while avoiding the red areas(which trigger alarms) and white areas(which shock you, dealing damage). There are eight different machines you need to hack for this achievement, they include...

Circus of Value vending machines
El Ammo Bandito vending machines
First Aid Stations
Security Cameras
Security Bots
Security Turrents

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP7P-9A=.jpgMaster Hacker - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Hack 30 machines at a distance with the Hack Tool.

Using the hacking tool you need to fire either an Auto Hacking Dart or a Remote Hacking Dart at the target machine. The Auto Hacking Dart will as the name implies, automatically hack the machine without you having to complete the mini-game. Remote Hacking Darts allow you to engage the hacking mini-game from a distance. Simply hack 30 machines using this method to unlock this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPzk8NA=.jpgFirst Research - 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Research a Splicer with the Research Camera.

This achievement is story related and cannot be missed. Once you have acquired the Research Camera, you are able to research and learn some tricks from your enemies. Simply select the Research Camera from your weapons selection menu by holding down http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rb.png. Once selected begin filming(researching) an enemy by hitting http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rt.png or http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/b.png.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP4jHE0=.jpgOne Research Track - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Max out one Research Track.

See "Research Master"

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/-vRFFQ==.jpgResearch Master - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Max out research on all 9 research subjects.

You will need to research each variety of enemy several times to max out their research track and each enemy can only be filmed once. To get the most out of your research, you will want to record as often as you can and compile as much data as you can on each enemy. To do this you will want to use a variety of Plasmids and weapons to maximize how much information you gain each time you start researching. Simply start recording the enemy type you wish to obtain data on and shoot them with each weapon and then cycle through a few offensive plasmids on them. The more of a variety of damage you can land on them, the better quality of research you will obtain and ultimately speeding along the process of "maxing out" the available data on the subject. In total there are 9 different subjects to research, each one giving 4 levels of rewards for reaching a specific mark in the data collection process. Later in the game you will find Tonics that can increase the filming time you get and a tonic to increase the quality of research you obtain.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPhzP44=.jpgGrand Daddy - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Defeat 3 Big Daddies without dying during the fight.

If you are playing through the game on Easy, this achievement isn't much of a challenge. There are many Big Daddies wandering around, some with Little Sisters and some without. They will not attack you until you attack them, so take a few seconds before engaging one to make sure you are completely ready. Once you land your initial attack, I recommend that you keep your distance and make good use of plasmids to subdue each Big Daddy. After 3 successful battles, without the use of a Vita-Chamber this will unlock.

Note: If the Big Daddy has a Little Sister and you plan to get, I wouldn't attack them unless you DO NOT have a Little Sister yourself.

See "Dealt with Every Little Sister"

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP4QJVE=.jpgMaster Gatherer - 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Gather 600 ADAM with Little Sisters.

Once you have adopted a Little Sister of your own, you can begin collecting ADAM. To locate a corpse to collect from hold down the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png button and your Little Sister will emit a glowing trail to follow. Once you arrive at a corpse that is able to be harvested you can put your Little Sister down by pressing http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png and she will begin Gathering the ADAM. During this time Splicers will start to converge on the area and you will need to defend your Little Sister while she works. The better you do at defending her, the more ADAM she is able to obtain. Each Little Sister you adopt is able to do 2 Gathers and then you will have to take her to a vent and make the choice of either rescuing her(changes her into a normal little girl, resulting in a small amount of ADAM and potentially a gift) or harvesting her(killing her, but a larger amount of ADAM is gained in the process). Over the course of the game you will gather enough ADAM to unlock this achievement.

Note: If you plan to unlock the "Savior" achievement, I recommend that you rescue each Little Sister instead of harvesting them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPwxLOQ=.jpgFully Upgraded a Plasmid - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Fully upgrade one of your Plasmids to the level 3 version at a Gatherer's Garden.

As you progress further into the game the Gatherer's Garden machines will begin selling upgraded versions of your Plasmids at the cost of ADAM. Each upgrade will increase the intensity of the plasmids effect, making them stronger, last longer, or cause an additional side effect. If you have the ADAM available you can get this achievement by saving in front of the machine, buying the upgrades, and then loading the save after the achievement pops to unlock this without spending the ADAM.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/+rZWfw==.jpgAll Plasmids - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Find or purchase all 11 basic Plasmid types.

You can obtain a handful of the Plasmids through the Gatherer's Garden machines, at the cost of ADAM. There are some Plasmids you get by progressing the story, the last Plasmid you need for this achievement is given to you near the end of the game. The available Plasmids are...

Cyclone Trap
-Spawns mini tornado traps that fling enemies into the air

-Spawns a ghost that distracts enemies away from the player

Electro bolt
-Sends charged currents of electricity to stun enemies and electrify water

-Causes the target to attack the users enemies

-Ignites enemies and objects, capable of spreading to nearby enemies and melting ice

Insect Swarm
-Spawns a swarm of bees that attack and distract nearby enemies

-Allows the use of an "Astral Projection(out of body ghost)" ability to scout ahead for enemies.

Security Command
-"Paints" and enemy, causing all nearby security turrents and bots to target and attack it

-Pulls enemies and objects, which can then be thrown

Winter Blast
-Freezes targets, which allows the user to shatter them

Summon Eleanor
-Summons Eleanor to fight by your side, in her Big Sister suit

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPk5B84=.jpgTrap Master - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Kill 30 enemies using only Traps.

Simply place Trap Rivets on wall or on the ground near stairs, doorways, and hallways, when you Gather ADAM with your Little Sister. As Splicers run in they will trigger the traps and usually die after 1 or two. After a few gathers this achievement will unlock.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP3R1Hc=.jpgMaster Protector - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get through a Gather with no damage and no one getting to the Little Sister.

Find a corpse to gather ADAM from with your Little Sister and I recommend that you make a save, just in case you get hit. Then set up trap rivets throughout the immediate area and place your Little Sister down. Make good use of your Plasmids when reloading your weapon and shoot them before they shoot you. I suggest doing this after you adopt your first Little Sister and on easy, so you don't have the wide variety of Splicers rushing you and they are easier to take down. I have a video that I posted on Youtube below.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/-TW0Mw==.jpgBig Spender - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Spend 2000 dollars at Vending Machines.

Through the course of the game you will encounter a few different vending machines, they include El Ammo Bandito, First Aid Stations, and Circus of Value vending machines. Just stock up on ammunition when you have the funds available and this will easily unlock over time.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/--JYrg==.jpgDealt with Every Little Sister - 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Either Harvest or Save every Little Sister in the game.

To "Deal" with a Little Sister, you need to first adopted them and then harvest or save them. Each level has a set amount of Little Sisters on it, which are currently in the care of another Big Daddy. To find out how many are on each level, simply hit the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/start.png button and look for the pictures at the bottom of the screen. If the picture shows a Little Sister sitting on a Big Daddies shoulder, then you will need to kill the Big Daddy and adopt the Little Sister. If the picture is of just a Little Sisters face, you have already adopted her and either still have her with you, harvested her, or saved her. Simply adopt every Little Sister on each level, then harvest or save her to obtain this achievement. I recommend that you use up each Little Sisters gathers to get as much ADAM as you can before taking her to a vent.

Note: If you are planning on getting the "Savior" achievement, be sure that you save each Little Sister and DO NOT harvest them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/-hKgPQ==.jpgAgainst All Odds - 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Finish the game on the hardest difficulty level.

Pretty much self explanatory, so man up and start cracking some skulls. Just make good use of corners to help mitigate damage, keep some distance between yourself and the stronger enemies. Your plasmids are really handy in most situations, Electro Bolt can stun enemies and Decoy can buy you some time to get away from a crowd or distract another Big Daddy. Be ready when the Big Sister warning starts up, make sure you ware full on First Aid Kits and EVE. If worse comes to worse, you can always get some use out of the Vita-Chambers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/-xS9hg==.jpgBig Brass Balls - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Finish the game without using Vita-Chambers

Simply complete the entire game without using a Vita-Chamber(Dieing). Some tips I have for this is to play through on Easy(you CAN get this on Easy) and save often. Don't let your health drop too low or assume you can take 1 more hit before healing, First Aid Kits are hidden everywhere so don't be afraid to use them. If you take your time and follow my tips, you will get this without much trouble.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP0ECEM=.jpgRapture Historian - 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Find 100 audio diaries.

Note: This achievement is missable, there is NO backtracking in the game.

Placed all around Rapture you can find audio diaries to collect. Each audio diary provides backstory to different events that have taken place and insight on various characters you encounter. Simply check every room you come across to find them all and unlock this achievement. The user "FailedLogic" has posted a location guide for the stations Here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=206590).

Complete 1 multiplayer game, you do not have to win the match(Non-Private Matches ONLY).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPyo1Ss=.jpgDisgusting Frankenstein - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Become a Big Daddy for the first time in a non-private match.

During most game modes a warning will pop up on screen, informing you that somewhere on the map a Big Daddy suit has spawned. Tracked down its location and hit http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to put it on, netting you this achievement in the process. While in the suit, you are quite the power house and have a powerful gun and proximity mines at your disposal.

Take down your first Big Daddy in a non-private match.

When another player becomes a Big Daddy, hunt them down and kill them. In order to get credit for this, you must land the killing blow. Big Daddies are very tough to take down and deal a lot of damage, so don't be surprised if you die a lot in the process.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UP9pJA0=.jpgMother Goose - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Save your first Little Sister in a non-private match.

Join a "Capture the Sister" match and when it is your teams turn to try and capture Little Sisters, pick her up and run her back to the vent. A tip to make this slightly easier, if you are high enough rank to have the "Aerial Dash" plasmid, you can use it to dash back to the vent faster and escape anyone pursuing you.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/UPmg-gE=.jpgTwo-Bit Heroics - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete your first trial in a non-private match.

Trials are like the challenges found in Modern Warfare that will give you ADAM as an award. Most of them are really simple, as in "Get X amount of kills with the Shotgun". Just complete any of the available trials to unlock this achievement. As with Modern Warfare not every trial is available at the start, so check in your statistics menu to see what is available. You can only obtain this achievement in a NON-Private Match.

For a list of the trials in game, you can check Here (http://bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Trials)

Achieve Rank 40.

As you play a multiplayer match, you will gradually gain ADAM which acts as a form of experience. The more ADAM you have gained, the higher your rank is and the more Plasmids, weapons, and upgrades you have. You gain ADAM for doing various things in a match and hypothetically you can reach Rank 40 without killing anyone. The following is a list of methods that you can use to obtain ADAM and rank up, make good use of the list and keep on grinding your ADAM.

-Get Kills
+10 ADAM per kill
-Research the corpse of an enemy
+10 ADAM and a damage increase on that person
-Hack enemy turrets
+10 ADAM and the turret will attack your enemies, until hacked
-Equip a Big Daddy Suit
+50 ADAM and you become a behemoth on the battlefield
-Kill an enemy Big Daddy
+100 ADAM and a pat on the back
-Collecting ADAM Vials
+10 ADAM, they are found randomly lying around each map
+You get bonus ADAM for getting a killstreak

Each Rank related achievement requires a specific amount of ADAM to achieve, those are as follows...

-Rank 10 - 9000 ADAM.
-Rank 20 - 25500 ADAM.
-Rank 30 - 53000 ADAM.
-Rank 40 - 97000 ADAM.

Stick with it and you will have enough in no time, obviously the better you do the more ADAM you will acquire.

Play at least one non-private match on each multiplayer map.

Pretty much self-explanatory, simply keep playing until you have played on each map. It may take a little time to see every map, but just stay at it until this achievement pops.

Paid your respects to the founder of Rapture.

This achievement is missable, since there is no backtracking in the game.

After completing your very first Gathering there is an open door where the Splicers burst through on you. Immediately through the door on the left is a display of Andrew Ryan at a desk. To the left of the desk in the back corner of the wall, there is a golf club that you need to pick up with Telekinesis and throw at the Andrew Ryan mannequin at the desk. I have attached a Youtube video I recorded for this achievement.

Used the Hack Tool to hack an object at a distance.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/s13.jpgUnbreakable - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Defended yourself against the Big Sister without dying.

After every 3 Little Sisters are dealt with, you will get the warning that a Big Sister is approaching. Big Sisters are very fast and very agile, at a distance they use Incinerate and Telekinesis plasmids and up close they are very dangerous with their melee attacks. On easy they aren't too challenging to take down, just make good use of plasmids(Electro Bolt and Decoy in particular) and try to keep your distance. Make sure you heal when you need to, not when you should have. Once you have whittled them down and killed her, this achievement will unlock. Make sure you loot the corpse of every Big Sister you kill for some free ADAM, 40 ADAM each.

Killed 50 enemies using only hacked Security.

As you progress through the game you can hack turrets, security cameras, and security bots. Simply allow them to kill any Splicers that come along and this will unlock over time. Later in the game you can purchase the Security Command 3 plasmid, which will allow you to repair any turret or bot that is friendly to you.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/661/s16.jpgSavior - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Saved every Little Sister and spared Grace, Stanley and Gil.

This achievement is missable if you choose to kill any of the NPCs or you do not save every little sister.

All you need to do is save every Little Sister on each level and when face to face with Grace, Stanley, and Gil DO NOT kill them. After your encounter with Gil, this achievement should unlock as you end the level.

Killed an enemy with its own projectile.

This achievement takes some timing, but is far from difficult. Simply wait for a Splicer to thrown a bomb at you and then use your Telekinesis Plasmid to stop it in midair and send it back at them for the killing blow. Below is a Youtube video that I have posted for this.

Glad to see Fizzmatix's work and the BioShock 2 wiki copied and slightly altered into a guide.

Well some of the descriptions actually are better than the other one. Didn't know he copied the stuff though.

Looks pretty well done on first sight.
If possible, a road map would be highly appreciated.

This is a great complementary to the other guide :)

Fizzmatix's work? Unlike Fizzmatix, I have actually played through the entire game and have 85% of the achievements. The only reason I sat down to do this guide was so people actually knew how to get and more about each achievement, based upon first hand experience and not assumptions. As for the BioShock 2 wiki, I sat for hours last night loading multiple saves from my game to gather any and all the information that I could. The only information that I myself did not compile would be the ADAM totals for multiplayer achievements and the Power to the people/Diary locations, which I credited to the person who posted them originally.
