I saw this piece of text on ign.com;

At our session's end, we checked out some of the Achievements built into the game. You get some for hacking a turret, hacking a security bot, fully upgrading weapons, completing sections of the game, and specializing in plasmid use. Then there are some peculiar entries, such as the Wrench King achievement which requires you finish the entire game using the only the wrench and plasmids. There's another that only unlocks after you finish the game without triggering security systems. That sounds really hard, to say the least, especially considering how much firepower you have to throw at Big Daddies, and makes us curious how long the game actually is. Regardless, BioShock (http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/793/793105.html) is very impressive so far. We can't wait for more.

Considering the achievements I think the game would be pretty short or the achievements are gonna be VERY time consuming... I can't wait to play this game!

cheers!

Nice find mate!

I'd guess the campaign'll last a good 7-10 hours. Or at least, hope so. Nice to see the achievements slide towards added replayability, wonder what the rest are.

Not long to go now.

I read that the game will last 25 hours if you take your time. So your 10 hours will probably be a good guess, i guess...

That's kind of disappointing tbh. 25 hours tops for the main story? Hmm, that's o.k. considering that's similar to Half-Life 2 and F.E.A.R.

ya 25 hours doesnt seem long enough. i personally hope there is a mix of hard achievements(for longevity) and easy achievements(to keep me intrested) I think the achievements like the wrentch one make people want to play through the game multiple times trying something new each time. Im SOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!

I really like the achievement list. The "achievement preview" that IGN gave was really misleading, I thought all the achievements would be a combo of weird and hard, but they're all over the board. Lots of achievements for "first time" things, some achievements for "repetition", some are challenges, some look like they might take multiple play throughs. I want to know what the secret achievements are for this game more than any other actually. I noticed the Wrench King achievement isn't a public one, but I don't think it's the secret 100G one.

07-04-2007, 10:46 PM
I'm guessing it's gonna be pretty tough to go through the entire game without "harvesting" a Little Sister. Apparently they're the key source of this Adam substance that keeps you going. Could keep playing the game multiple times interesting.

MrRedrum
07-04-2007, 11:13 PM
I'm sure the 100 point secret achievement will be for not triggering any of the security systems. Since during IGN's review said that the security drones were of great use it would actually hinder you and cause even more problems for you to not take advantage of the security areas and get "caught." But we will never know until we start unlocking them ourselves. Also, I'm sure the Wrench King achievement will only be one of the 30 point achievements... or it could always be the 100 pointer. It depends on how tough the game actually is.

Cyrex
07-05-2007, 01:25 AM
im not happy that there are a lot of secret achievements though, i know that there is only like 10 but i was thinking that there should only be like 5 or something. I know beating it on hard is going to be really hard but since the hole game is single player i think they should be some fun achievements in here. By the looks of it though there are no COG tags:p:woop::woop:, but i am wondering how many different Audio diaryies there are though?

Wolf
07-05-2007, 02:10 AM
7-10 hours are fine for a single player only game that is going to force you to go back to get most of the achievements. And I don't care if it risks 100 points, I'm harvesting all the little sisters I can. It's probably the secret 100-pointer anyway.

Feel My Rage
07-05-2007, 07:20 AM
Wolf prety much said what i was gonna say....

The 100g is probably the oposite of the saviour one...harvest them all.

Does anyone know what the 'research' achievements are about, there is one that says you need to take research photos, so will research be like taking some snapshots of enemies a la Dead Rising?

There is a long list even if they aren't as varied as in other games, not too many story progression ones unless they are secret.

I like them they give the game allot of replay value

ill probably be going for allot of Achievements in this game but the secret Achievements are annoying but there probably just Story progression Achievements.

(The Secret Achievement for 100G is probably complete the Game)

Webb
07-05-2007, 06:45 PM
(The Secret Achievement for 100G is probably complete the Game)

Well there is a 40pt achievement for completing it on hard so that would seem a little weird.

Zef
07-05-2007, 07:03 PM
Bulletwitch has a 1 pointer for beating it on the highest difficulty, so it wouldn't be out of the question to do such a thing.

If the secret achievements are story related then they probably want to keep it more secretive than other games have done. Or maybe they have some for beating x number of y enemies, 100 big daddies anyone?

WhoKildMyHooker
07-05-2007, 10:36 PM
the 100 point secret one cant be harvest all little sisters because a 40 point one right after beat on hard is harvest or rescue all little sisters lol (dealt with every little sister)

I hate my life. Sort of. 40 points is at least rewarding. The 100 pointer is probably something stupid, then, like play for 100 hours.

MrRedrum
07-06-2007, 12:07 AM
Zef might actually be on to something... killing 100 big daddies or something along those lines would definitely be challenging... but if you are to kill every little sister then by default you must encounter and kill a Big Daddy. Unless if you're somehow able to kill the little sister and run away from the Big Daddy which from the videos seems to be either impossible or hard as hell.

DeW222
07-06-2007, 02:45 AM
Although I don't doubt that the 100 point secret achievement will be challenging, it won't be to kill 100 big daddies since they're basically optional bosses and I think there are only about a dozen in the game. In fact, I doubt that the achievement has anything to do with the big daddies/little sisters at all since so many of the public achievements have to deal with them. It's probably going to be something really out there though (maybe a la Crackdown: upgrade everything. Tracks, weapons, Tonic, etc.)

Fire Mage
07-06-2007, 02:51 AM
I bet something extra happens if you harvest all the Little Sisters.

And so then that will probably be the extra 100 point achievement. As when I was reading up, some guy wants you to harvest them all to save his family or some sort. My memory is fuzzy.

I bet if you do, then he uses all the power to do something crazy and you must beat him (or something of the sort)...

Just a guess!

Feel My Rage
07-06-2007, 06:42 AM
Im still leaning towards Harvesting all the LS for 100g.It would only make sense seeing as the only other 100g is to save them all...and dont bring up the 'Dealt with little sisters' thing again as an argument against this.Bucause as far as I can tell,thats simply defeat all the BDs and harvest and/or save the LS.There for you can mix both and deal with all the LSs and still get that one

ZoopSoul
07-09-2007, 05:51 AM
They wouldn't keep the savior one in the public if one for harvesting them all is a secret. Beyond that, they have one for harvesting/saving them all already on that list. It's not consistent with the other achievements. Seriously, think about it. It doesn't make sense.

The secret ones will be story-related. They don't wanna give the game's plot entirely away.

Feel My Rage
07-10-2007, 12:52 AM
I know some of the secrets will be story related...but why wouldnt there be one for harvesting all the LS?theres one for SAVING them all,one for doing,either or doing a mix,so why shouldnt there be one?

Please tell me if you have a reason why it shouldnt be one for harvesting.

Fanthir
07-19-2007, 01:08 AM
If you recall them saying you need adam for all your powers, and when you kill a little sister you get a whole buncha adam. Why would they reward you for taking the semi-easy way out. I would think going on without as much adam would make the game progressively harder. It will probably be a 30 point achievement.
I would like to see the wrench achievement as the 100 because that seems to be the most likely. Or it could be an achievement were you go through the game without fighting at all.

Feel My Rage
07-19-2007, 06:36 AM
Hmmm.....point taken.....

But i still say there is an achievement for killing all the sisters...

And one for completeing the game without fighting?Wouldnt that be,to ay the least, damn near impossible is this kinda game?

How I hate 100 hour achievements Far Cry, C&c 3, Dead or Alive 4 and what ever else. I guess it is better then 10,000 kills in gears for some.

Yeah, I'd agree with this. It seems odd that the first achievement is for completing the welcome to rapture level, but there aren't any achievements for the other levels. I'd be willing to bet that a few of them are secret because they're story related spoilers.

I try not to wonder on the achievements to much, If it is 25 Hours Thank god because that Is REALLY long for FPS to say the least...I think that with all of the different paths everyone will have to play through the game at least twice to find everything and try everything and so on and so fourth...Although I am planning on going through the first time without Harvesting the Little Girls Because, I was watching a video and it says that you still get alittle ADAM from the rescue of The little girls and that the Person that whats you to rescue the girls will make it worth your while so it will probally have its pluses. :)

So I haven't gotten a chance to play the demo yet, and haven't been following this. Are the achievements like upgrade all of x gonna be like Crackdown getting 4 stars in everything, or is it gonna be like if you get to the end of the game with 99% everything nothing maxed out, you have to replay it with empty stats again. Trying to understand how the system works here, I hope it's something where you can keep replaying your same character until you max everything, because I want to go through it first with no achievements in mind just playing.

Feel My Rage
08-13-2007, 04:43 PM
Blitz,the game is not like Crackdown in the aspect that once you beat the game,you must restart to play again or reload your last save...and you can see the achievements,theyve been up on the site for a bit now....The 'maxing' achievements have to deal with Splicer research and weapon upgrades,thats about it.But this game isnt linear.There is a story and 'missions' you MUST do to get further into the game and into more areas,but you are ALWAYS allowed to backtrack to areas youve been to before,you are not requiered to go back,so you can pretty much make ths game last as long as you want.

Just finished the demo and had a bit of a ponder on a possible, albeit crazy achievement. Big Daddy Boxer - Defeat a Big Daddy using only melee weapons

Since I haven't fought one I don't know how impossibly hard that would be to accomplish, but it would be bloody hilarious trying.

"Those Things Cause Cancer - Smoke Every Pack of Cigarettes in the Game"

"Time to Call Alcoholics Anonymous - Drink All Alcoholic Beverages in the Game"

Mean Drunk - Kill an enemy whilst under the influence of alcohol

Little Daddy - Kill X Big Daddies

Ceaser 2.0 - Use Enrage and watch two Big Daddies lock horns

Got my copy yesterday (reviewing it for www.xbox360only.nl (http://www.xbox360only.nl)) and seven of the 10 secret achievements are for the story. The other three (last ones from the list), could be related to the story (the ninth secret achievement is easily doable in story), but I'm not sure.

I am also kinda confused about the achievement Curtis is mentioning, but I'm thinking it will be something with the story.

Funny BTW, if you look at what IGN said, finishing the game with only using a wrench and finishing the game without triggering any security alarms. Those seem to have been cut out, which is a shame, because it would have given the game a lot more longetivity (it is cool anyway to play it three times, but getting achievements for it is always better).

The achievements are quite easy to get, actually. I got 48 out of 50 in one play-through on Normal. Right now, I simply have to do the hardest achievement of them all [aside from beating it on Hard], finding all the dang Audio Log Diaries (I have 120 of them right now). THAT is the real hard thing to do.


But, yes, if you have patience and not zoom straight through it. You can get nearly every single achievement [like me] in one play-through.

I am trying to not read this thread to avoid spoilers especially the ones where the text is just white your supposed to highlight but I can see them very clear lol.

Anyway my questions are , with the little sisters ...

1. For the sister saviour without harvesting them does that also count against saving them or will I get both the " Sister Saviour " and " Dealt with every little sister " achievements the same way by saving them?

2. Will I pretty much run into the Big Daddies and Little Sisters while doing the story line? ( I am currently getting the Telekenisis or whatever on my way to it )

3. When the EFF do I get the camera? lol

XxHektikxX
08-22-2007, 01:43 AM
ok ill try my best to answer ur questions.

1). yes i do believe saving all the little sisters would net you both achievements. I mean you ARE dealling with all the little sisters by rescuing them right.

2). As far as i can tell....and im not really that far in...yes. They seem to appear in places where the story takes you, at least for now. But i usually search the entire map before leaving an area (left overs from Castlevania lol) so i dont think i would miss one. Side note,they do appear even if all the little sisters have been dealt with...its actually kinda cool really. They wander around all like sad....

3). You dont get the camera til later on, after you leave neptunes bounty. Dont worry its part of the story, so you cant miss it.

Tussell
08-22-2007, 02:25 AM
Do you have to get every single sister and rescure them? Or is it just the one's you rescued count for the 100 point achievement.

Thank you I got the camera not long ago ,glad to know I wasn't just retarded not knowing how to find it lol.

I got one of the big daddies and killed them but the little girl kind of vanished. I hypnotized the big daddy to help me in combat.

I am hoping that I can find that little girl later to nab the achievement or maybe that Big Daddy was all alone. It was right in the start or very close to the start of the Neptunes Bounty level where you first get to buy the plasmid stuff such as the hypnotize a big daddy and the freeze stuff.

So as I read the posts I am getting the feeling it is probably better to go through the first playthrough on normal and get the sister saviour Ach. and you could get pretty much everything but the hard playthrough?? I Started on Hard right away but it is not really enjoyable...

Yes. Granted you get the Dealt achievement first...then when you complete the game you will get the little sister achievement.

after the ending of the game do you just get free roam around rapture to get the sisters??

and if anyone could post locations of them id appreciate it. ive rescued three but alot of the time i exit places and it says "you havent found any little sisters in this level"...and i mean their not hard to spot with the big daddys nearby and i cant find any.

Just save before the ending and go back to any levels where you think you may have missed Little Sisters. Press start in each new area and it will show you how many you need. Every picture of a Big Daddy at the bottom of the pause menu counts for a Sister that you need

I bet something extra happens if you harvest all the Little Sisters.

And so then that will probably be the extra 100 point achievement. As when I was reading up, some guy wants you to harvest them all to save his family or some sort. My memory is fuzzy.

I bet if you do, then he uses all the power to do something crazy and you must beat him (or something of the sort)...

Just a guess!I'm quoting myself from before because:

I know I'm late and all, but yeah I guessed that secret achievement pretty closely. Although you don't have to harvest the girls like I guessed, I did successfully guess that you would have to fight Atlas.

Start a new game on hard to get that achievement and use the weapon upgrade station locater thread, which makes it really easy..and there are a serious amount of nitro splicers in the last two areas up to main boss in promethius point and the area before. :)

Hope that helps.

for getting all the tonics, is that basically not possible if you dont harvest little sisters?? It's the other way around.

You have to save them all to get the Tonics. Some of the Tonics are given to you as rewards for saving the Little Sisters.

Some of them are bought at Gatherer's Gardens. And the remaining Tonics are found around Rapture.


Look in the Tonics topic.

You need to pick them up in the reward teddy bears that the little sisters leave at the gatherer's garden machines. If you didn't pick them up, you have to restart to get them. Next run-through, when Tennenbaum radios you about a reward, go and get it immidiately, they dissapear otherwise.

no its easy man, easiest way to do it is to keep making items (about 50) then just save up all your items (batteries etc), when you get to a later level, hack an invent machine, save, then keep making the cheapest things in one go.. i did this and it popped up before i left the machine, then load back up your save

also, sorry if this has been asked, but if i rescue a little sister, and she gets killed by a splicer after i save her, will i still get the saviour achievement?

Thats never happened to me but i suspect it wouldn't affect it seeing as you only have to go through the game without harvesting. The acheivement doesn't state that it would have to involve all the Little Sisters in the game so nah i think your alright but i don't think you can get the 'Dealt With Every Little Sister' achievement though.

Yes, before you take the elevator up to the last boss, you can save the game and head back to where ever you need to. Personally, I saved and finished everything before I escorted the Little Sisters.

have i got a glitched game because the lucky winner achivement wont unlock and ive won about 6 times on the slots and still no achivementAre you sure you're hitting the jackpot or are you just winning regularly? You must get 3 $ signs and get the $250 jackpot for the achievement.


Are the achievements on this game easy or what?If you're good at the game and can find stuff relatively well, then they're easy. I wouldn't recommending rushing through the game for achievements though, as it's a really good game.

Myself, I got 49 achievements on my first playthrough. Now I'm replaying on Hard (albeit slowly). Most of the stuff, like Audio Diaries, I found on my own except for a couple that I missed. I just looked at the guide and found the missing ones and got the achievements.

You must take pictures of Splicers using the Research Camera.

There is a bar at the bottom of each picture that fills up as you get research on the Splicers. You must fill it about four times I believe to fully research one. You'll know you've fully researched it when the bonus pops up with "Increased Damage+++".

Also, for the Max PhD achievement or whatever it is, you must fully research:

- All Splicers
- Little Sisters
- Both Big Daddy types (Bouncer and Rosie)
- Turret
- Surveillance camera
- Security bot


Check the FAQ if you have more questions first.

Fancy Cigarettes is in Fort Frolic. Some other guy started a thread about a download for the extra 250 points, but it got shut down and he was supposed to move it here, but didn't. I'm wondering the same thing. Is there any news about a possible download in the future?

Oh yea btw, is the fighting Sander Cohen twice a glitch or a mistake by the developers. Since you can kill him again if you burn his masterpiece after killing him in
his apartment id say that the developers didn't expect you to go back and burn the masterpiece, but what is it?

If you take pics of most of the turrents you encounter, you should finish turrent research around Fort Frolic. You can't make hacked machines unhacked, just take the pics after electrobolt and before hacking. If you didn't research turrents and you dealt with all of them, you need to restart the game and research them first instead of hacking or destroying them.

Don't forget about security bots and security cameras.

IIRC correctly, the achievement is for "finishing the game without harvesting any Little Sisters", so you get it for saving some and ignoring the rest, exactly as you did - there is a separate 40G achivement for dealing with all the LSs, whether saved or harvested.

Does anyone know if:

New Bouncers (bots) enter levels periodically?
I kill one will a new one respawn?
There a limited number of bots?Can anyone suggest somewhere in Rapture where i could find Bouncers - are there any spots where people find them hiding out?????

You can tell I'm clutching at straws here - i just have the Bouncer and PHd achievements to polish this game off (in my eye's ;)- I'm not going through on hard)

You can find Bouncers in the first level, Medical Station. You pretty much need to kill the Bouncer to make another one appear (new ones will eventually come but its easier/faster just to kill them). The other place you could go to is Hephaestus, in the Core, I think they have Elite Bouncers there. You could use security plamid to have security kill them or get two of them to fight each other. Take as many pics as you can of it before killing, obviously.

I need to know this. I killed Sander Cohen in the first of the game by mistake. oops.
Ok, there is a weapon upgrade machine that i cant get too in his apartment, right, so therefore I cant get the fully upgrade achievement, and the achievements that go along with sander cohen. Can I go back and get these achievements by loading a level prior to killing him after Im done with the game? thanks.

If you load a game that still has him alive, you should be able to get into his appartment and get the rest of the achievements.

Oddly enough, after you kill him in his appartment, you can kill him again by burning his masterpiece. He will come down from his office and attack you. Only works in reverse though, he won't appear later in the game if he was killed before in the story.

Hey guys I notice now on the achievement list for bioshock it moved from 50 to 51 anyone has any clue on what the new achievement is? I know there was a posting awhile ago on the German verison of this game people already found it. Maybe if anyone from Europe can probably share on what the achievement is.

For that new achievement, do you have to kill the big daddy's? Or can you just beat the story line fast without attacking the big daddy's??? Because that would make it a lot easier if you don't have to attack them....

The requirements are pretty straight forward, pretty much if you kill the final enemy without using a vita chamber from the beginning of the game, starting on hard difficulty and not changing the setting at any time throughout the game, you will get the achievement. You don't need a single tonic, weapon, upgrade, audio diary, or any research. Of course all of those things will probably help you but all are unnecessary. I will probably wait until I get the grenade launcher to take on rosies and bouncers aren't that bad if you use a shotgun. All you have to do is matador thier bull rush and shotgun it as it passes. Unload all of your AP at range first.

So, is there really a 51:st achievement where I have to beat the game all over again? :S

Because, a few days ago I checked, and there was this Secret one "hanging out" with the rest.. But now I can't seem to find it in my achievement list anymore.

So did they decide to get rid of it, or is it still there? Because it only says that I have 47 out of 50 achievements, and you guys are still discussing what it might be. :/

Well Sander Cohen's Apartment contains a Power to the People Machine, so you'll need it for fully upgraded weapons achievement, you'll find his apartment on the first floor of mercury suites I believe (Somebody correct me if I'm wrong) and the Power to the People Machine is located upstairs

Yes, the DLC tonics do count towards you earning your Tonic Collector achievement. Just be sure and buy the "tonics" and not the plasmid, as you really end up not needing it but it is fun to use on some enemies.

i am now wandering around waiting for enemies to respawn so i can kill them and collect bits of equipment. (i have the tonics for scrounger and the 2 invent ones installed and always hack the machine before inventing)

I tried going to the bee place but that doesn't respawn enemies that quickly.

No, if you already have the achievement on the list you can earn it, i won it without turning vita chambers off, in fact i dont think i found the damn option, i dont know if you havent seen my other posts or you dont trust me, if its the second, i hope someone confirms what i say, but that shouldnt be needed, if you have the update and the dlc, there should be no problem.

Ok first of all you need to download the dlc (if you havent) with the new tonics and stuff (the dlc is free), then make sure you have the update... if you still dont find the disable dont worry, you dont need that option to do it, you just need to be really careful on reload when you die, i got it this way, i didnt disable the vita-chamber. Just keep saving over and over after a BD and important points (or every 5min :p) and you will get it.

On my final playthru on Hard, I only upgraded my Health bar maybe twice, and I got to Fontaine and whooped his ass just fine without max health upgrades. Avoiding the Big Daddies makes the game a helluva lot easier too! :)

I just gotta' say that I think that this is the absolute best game for the Xbox360 ever. The achievements are perfect, the only one I have left is Brass Balls and I don't feel like doing that one, they're not to easy, not to hard and not to boring. Many of the achievements come naturally while you play the story, and almost everyone of the other, though they take the entire game to get, are easy, for example the Historian achievement. And on the other hand is the game itself, with the story and everything, perfect. I've tried to play this on the PC before but then i found it to massive to enjoy. Once I got it for the 360, sat down and started playing it I realized that it's really fun. I just have to say to everyone that haven't played this game that they do. Or else you're going to miss something.

I have to disagree with you. This is one of the best games but far from the being the best. This game is essentially Oblivion with guns. You've got to love how they added in a crossbow in this and didn't add one in Oblivion. That being said, this game has one of the best achievements made for it and greatly help the replay value.

Since I wasn't in the mood to play through BioShock 3 times, I combined my Historian, Seriously Good at This, and Brass Balls altogether into one playthrough. It worked well, until halfway through Hephaestus, when the Vita-Chambers miraculously started to work again. I checked the options, and the option to disable Vita-Chambers was gone altogether. I thought nothing of it, continued without using them, and no achievement, even when they disabled themselves for the final battle with Fontaine. Anyone else have this problem?

It took me about 50 minutes to pass Medical Pavilion collecting everything. I'm going to take this game slow and do 1 level in each sitting (1-2 sittings per week, or whenever I feel like it) use walkthroughs and guides as much as possible. Read into where exactly where to find every Diary don't just look at a map. Directions are a great help!

it really bummed me out that in Bioshock 2 we didn't had to find every single recording to get the achievement. They could have done the same on the first game since I've only missed like 2 of them on the original Bioshock and really don't think I'll be able to play it all over again just for that...

These are the most random achievements.

Quick question as im quite confused about this and have looked around for a while, is the xbox 360 achievement list and the PC version list different for Bioshock? Like the Fallout 3 version, where they have two different lists?

Or, I may be wrong and the PC version doesn't have achievements but I've been told they have?

Any help on this guys?

Thanks,

TRG.

Well, I just finished this game today and I guess I left out a video diary because the achievement didn't unlock, and it's the last one I need. Lol, I am pretty upset with myself right now. :(

Edit: I missed 2. One was in a trunk, and the other was in plain sight at a bar.
