Ok I Have Just Reached Fontaine Futuristics And I Have All Research Maxed Except For 2
Big Sister - Just A Bit Past Level 2
Alpha Series - Level 1
My Question Is, Is There Enough Big Sistes And Alpha Series For Me To Research B4 I Finish The Game.

Thanks. Arc

more than enough:)Thuggish Splicer seems to be the only enemy that stops appearing after a while:mad:

yeah, right? I thought I was crazy when I checked my progress before the final segment.

I think they stop appearing completely after pauper's; a LOT of leadheads/houdinis, some brutes and the usual number of daddies from there on.

yes, quite annoying! I was hoping to have a nice quick second playthrough, but now I have to go focus on research again, and since I also accidentally... killed stanley, since I thought the achievement only required saving the sisters, I'm gonna have to rescue all of those again too :(

i hope there is a tonic later in the game that helps you max out the reasearch splicers

Once you get to the last location there are a TON of every kind of enemy you can face. You shouldn't have too much worry if you have somewhere around the 3's. I even started the last area with my big sisters a little more than 2 and got them all.

so wait, do u have to constantly research the special enemies in order to get the achievement before the end of the game? i haven't been spending a ton of time researching but i have been trying to make a habit of it. so do u need to consistantly research them to get it before the end? Im currently using the tonic that give more research points per try BTW. also what does scanning dead bodies do. does it add towards ur total research points?

sorry to the OP for not answering ur questions but there are already 2 topics on this and its not worthwhile to make a new thread.

Oh, sweet! I'm almost at the end now, and only have 1,5 bar of thuggish left to research. Hopefully there are enough to fill those.

EDIT: I am sorry to inform you that you are wrong. There are no thuggish splicers near the end. Looks like you'll have to get those asap after getting the camera. There are infinite brutes near the end though(till you complete a certain objective), so don't worry about those.

Just research every enemy you meet. More than enough splicers and security to fill the bars, big daddies/sisters usually fill a bar per fight(at least for me they did). Brutes took me a while, but there are quite a few near the end. I'm not too sure about the dead bodies either. And it seems kinda glitchy, since I can only photograph one out of ten bodies or so...

Don't wait on Big Daddies. I got seriously boned on it (I have half a mind to try and get a picture of how fkin close I am to leveling them big daddies to 4...we're talking between one and two hash marks).

If you're dealing with every little sister, you will not see another big daddy once the last little sister has been dealt with. One may spawn while you are escorting your last kid around, but trust me. This is important to note because this is a full 2-3 levels BEFORE you beat the game.

You will get brutes, alphas, big sisters, leadhead, houdini, and spider slicers like they are a fat kid and you're a sandwich. No big daddies, though :(

Ok Spoilers!

When you go to grab Gil's genetic code, the Alpha will appear from there on out. During the final sequence there are 3 Alpha's which can be researched.

For the Big sister, there is a sequence where you take control of a little sister. Before that are 2 big sisters to fight. Researching both will give you 1 1/2 levels of research.

I'm at Sirens Alley and I've only got Thuggish, Leadhead, Spider, Big Daddy, Big Sister, Security and Brute - that's only 7, I've not encountered another two yet. I imagine one is Houdini, but what's the last? I've fully maxed out Thuggish and Leadhead which seems good considering Thuggish disappear - so I'm glad about that.

What's the last one? I'm hearing a bit about Alpha so I'm going to assume that's it, but if so, when about's does it appear?

When do the regular big daddys stop showing up. Right now I am doing the level where the bot flies around and taunts you. All I have seen so far are the newer looking big daddys.
