http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1zc8P2Nh.jpg
Maxed One Track (20) - Buy out all the spaces in any of the Plasmid or Tonic tracks at any of the Gatherer's Garden locations.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Dc8P2Ni.jpg

NOTE: Killing Sander Cohen WILL prevent you from getting this achievement, so DO NOT kill him until he opens his door to his living quarters in his apartment.

Fully Research "x" Splicer
- You'll get these once you get the Increased Damage+++ research special. Take as many pictures as you can while the game will still give you research points to get this easier. I suggest buying 100 rolls at a Circus of Value vending machine so that you don't worry about using up all your film while taking pictures. You will get these once you get the research bar full FOUR times for each of them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1jc8P2Nh.jpg
Fully Researched Thug Splicer (10) - Fully research the Thuggish Splicer with your camera(the ones that smack you with blunt objects).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1zc8P2Nj.jpg
Fully Researched Gun Splicer (10) - Fully research the Leadhead Splicer with your camera(the ones that shoot you).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Tc8P2Ni.jpg
Fully Researched Spider Splicer (10) - Fully research the Spider Splicer with your camera(the ones that climb ceilings and have hooks for hands, you can find these more commonly in Fort Frolic).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1Dc8P2Nj.jpg
Fully Researched Houdini Splicer (10) - Fully research the Houdini Splicer with your camera(the ones that teleport and shoot flames at you).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1Tc8P2Nl.jpg
Fully Researched Nitro Splicer (10) - Fully research the Nitro Splicer with your camera(the ones that throw bombs and grenades at you, they start to be more prominent in Arcadia).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1Tc8P2Nm.jpg
Fully Researched Rosie (10) - Fully research the Big Daddy Rosie with your camera(the "scuba steve's" :) it can either be regular Rosie's or Elite Rosie's, they count as the same).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Dc8P2Nj.jpg
Fully Researched Bouncer (10) - Fully research the Big Daddy Bouncer with your camera(you can get this from the regular Bouncers or Elite Bouncers, they count as the same).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1Dc8P2Nk.jpg
Fully Researched Little Sister (10) - Fully research the Little Sister with your camera.
Tip: An easy way to do this, as has been suggested by numerous posters, is that once you get your suit and you have to escort the Little Sister, take the pictures then and let the Little Sister die when she is taking the ADAM from the corpses, then knock on the Little Sister hole to get another one, take more pictures of her, rinse and repeat until she is fully researched.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1jc8P2Ni.jpg
Prolific Photographer (5) - To get this, you must at least take a picture of every research group, this includes all the Splicers, plus Turret, Security Camera and Security Bot.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0jc8P2Nh.jpg
Research PhD (20) - Research everything up until you get Increased Damage+++ as your research upgrade. A list of things to fully research:
Thuggish Splicer
Nitro Splicer
Spider Splicer
Leadhead Splicer
Houdini Splicer
Rosie(Elite Rosie)
Bouncer(Elite Bouncer)
Little Sister
Turret(any turret, RPG or Gun)
Security Bot
Security Camera

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0jc8P2Ni.jpg
Quality Research Photo (20) - Will get when you get "Researched a Splicer", while taking a picture of the Spider Splicers before the Fisherie, you must get an A ranking on any research photo to get this, if you don't get it then, then take an action shot of anything and you will get this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0zc8P2Nh.jpg
Researched a Splicer (5) - Will get while doing the story, it makes you do it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1zc8P2Nk.jpg
One Successful Hack (5) - Hack anything to get it(health station, vending machine, ammo machine, U-Invent).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Tc8P2Nj.jpg
Hacked a Security Bot (10) - Hack any of the Security bots flying around, there should be one near the beginning of the game that is keeping two doors from closing that you can hack to get it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Dc8P2Nk.jpg
Hacked a Security Camera (10) - Easiest way to do it is find a camera, Electric Bolt it then run up to it and hack it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0zc8P2Ni.jpg
Hacked a Turret (10) - Same as with the Security Camera, Electric Bolt it then run up to it and hack it before it becomes active again.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1jc8P2Nj.jpg
Hacked a Vending Machine (10) - Hack any of the Circus of Value or Ammo Benito vending machines and you'll get it.

Part 2(SPOILERS):

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0jc8P2Nj.jpg
Hacked a Safe (10) - They're all over the place, just hack any one of them to get it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1zc8P2Nl.jpg
Skilled Hacker (40) - Hack everything you can, you should get this right about the time when you get to the submarine or a little bit after.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0jc8P2Nk.jpg
Basic Inventor (5) - You'll get this in the Tea Garden at your first U-Invent machine that you find by making any of the items that are available.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Dc8P2Nl.jpg
Avid Inventor (10) - Go to any of the U-Invent stations throughout the game and invent 100 items. Search everything to get materials to make things, and use the Clever Inventor tonic along with hacking the station to lower the requirements to invent an item(you do not have to pick up the item you invent to count towards this).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Tc8P2Nk.jpg
Ammo Inventor (25) - You have to create the Heat Seaking RPG, Trap Bolt, Electric Gel, Armor-piercing Auto Rounds, Exploding Buck, and Antipersonnel Pistol Rounds at the U-Invent stations throughout Rapture to get this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1jc8P2Nk.jpg
Little Sister Saviour (100) - Don't harvest any Little Sisters the entire game to get this, if you want to make sure, save before you fight a Big Daddy or after just in case you accidentally hit the X button instead of Y.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Bx/7x/14CLiGJhbC9BFQUbXVdRGEQ4L2FjaC8wLzUAAAAA5+fn+N4eHA ==.jpg
Tonic Collector (50) - To get this, you need to collect 53 Tonics throughout the game, search every room and buy every Tonic from the Gatherer's Garden stations. You should get this right near the end of the game(Plasmids do NOT count towards the 53, only ones from Physical, Engineering and Combat Tonics count towards this).
Tip: Don't buy all of the Health and EVE upgrades as you will not have enough to be able to buy every Tonic that you need for this achievement. Also, you WILL need to save every Little Sister to be able to aquire this achievement. Wait until the third upgrade for the Plasmids appear, this will help save a lot of ADAM needed for this achievement.

A List of all the Tonics and Plasmids, along with their location is here(thanks to all who contributed to this list):http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=35852

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/n1/0V/1ICLiGJhbC9ECxoEGlxTVkQ4L2FjaC8wLzEwAAAAAOfn5-s6XYM=.jpg
Historian (50) - To get this, you must get every audio recording in the game, they can be anywhere, in boxes, on bodies, lying around under stairs, behind things, under things, JUST SEARCH EVERYWHERE!!!
A map for each location is here(thanks to all who contributed to the list and SRH KRONIC for making a map of the locations): http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=37616

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0zc8P2Nk.jpg
Seriously Good At This (40) - Beat the game on hard mode, self explainatory.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1Tc8P2Nn.jpg
Dealt with every Little Sister (40) - Make sure that before leaving an area, hit the start button and make sure that you defeated all of the Big Daddy's(you CAN go back to areas before and get the Little Sisters, but to save time, just get them before moving on).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/1jc8P2Nl.jpg
Lucky Winner (10) - To get this, you have to get three dollar signs in a row at the slot machines in Fort Frolic, they're right on the left once you exit the Rapture Metro from Arcadia at the start, they are also slewn about Rapture after this point.(Be persistent and you'll eventually get it, have a lot of cash on you though, because it might run you dry. You also might want to save before starting this in case you do run out of cash).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/0Dc8P2Nn.jpg
Toaster in the Tub (10) - While in Welcome to Rapture, you'll come to a point where there is a big globe to your left when you enter. Go down the stairs to your right and there should be a guy knockin on a door, kill him, then the woman inside, then once you come out, there should be two guys that drop down. Use Electric Bolt on the water and you'll get it. Otherwise, just zap anyone that is standing in water to get it.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s01.jpg
Defeated Dr. Steinman (15) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: Kill his security bot first, then lure him down into the water that is in the lower part of the surgery center and electric bolt him, then shoot at him while not standing in the water, this will make this fight a lot shorter OR, if you decided to keep Incinerate!, there is an oil slick that is behind where he was standing to start, light this on fire to kill him faster, then when he goes to the water to put it out, keep shooting at him in the back to kill him quickly.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s02.jpg
Defeated Peach Wilkins (15) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: Use your surroundings, this fight is almost like the one against Steinman. Steal the pistol from the splicer and use that to kill him faster.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s03.jpg
Restored the Forest (15) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: Collect the rose and all the distilled waters and everything, the put it into the vent system, you will get it after doing that.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s04.jpg
Completed Cohen's Masterpiece (30) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: You will get it after putting the fourth picture in his piece that's on the stage in the Lower Atrium, not really that hard, just take the pictures after killing the person he wants killed.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s05.jpg
Defeated Andrew Ryan (30) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: You HAVE to kill him, you beat him with a golf club, it's in a cut scene, nothing to do to get this besides move on in the story.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s06.jpg
Broke Fontaine's Mind Control (30) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: All you have to do is find the two Lot 192 Remedies and you will get this achievement after getting the second one in Fontaine's Apartment.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s07.jpg
Defeat Atlas (100) - Store related, can't miss it.
Tip: Stab him with the ADAM collector that the Little Sisters use, then based on what color he is, if he's red, hit him with Winter Blast, if he's blue, hit him with Incinerate!, otherwise, use your upgraded grenade launcher, I found that to be quite effective.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s08.jpg
Become a Big Daddy(30) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: Collect all of the part in the Labratory place. List of the parts are: Boots, Suit, Helmet, 3 Odor solutions and Voice Modifier.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/271/s09.jpg
Irony (10) - ****SEE "Find Cohen's Room" FOR THIS****
NOTE: Killing him before he is in his apartment will also prevent you from getting "Weapon Master".

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/hA/Xr/0ICLiGJhbC8yFQUbXVdRGEQ4L2FjaC8wL0YAAAAA5+fn-8QFnw==.jpg
Find Cohen's Room (10) - OK, to get this, after finishing Sander Cohen's Masterpiece, DO NOT kill him. Once you then get to his apartment in Olympus Heights, there will be a door on your right when you enter, kill the 2 people dancing and he will get pissed at you and run down the stairs and come after you, then you can enter his room and get this achievement.
NOTE: It HAS BEEN confirmed that you can get both of these in one play. After killing him in his apartment, you can still take a picture of him and get the "Irony" achievement at the same time, SO don't kill him until he's in his apartment and just get both at one time.
Thanks xJACKASS for telling how to get this one!!


Enjoy!!!! :drunk

I got into Cohen's room, it's located inside his apartment to the right of when you enter. The door opened for me no problem though I may have obtained a key for the room elsewhere at some point (I know I got cohen's muse key off his corpse in the appt)

Here's the relevant icon:

here's a hint for the little sisters research that worked for me, if you research a sister as much as you can until you are scoring too low for it to even count, leave the area you are in so that the sister retreats, then go back and find her big daddy who will be searching for the sister. When he bangs for the sister to come out, you will be able to photograph the sister which comes to his call for full research points and can simply repeat when you max out on her.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!























You know, after playing the demo, I kinda figured I'd have to kill Atlas. I played like five minutes and went, "I bet I have to kill this guy". Nice to know I was right. Ha ha. It seems like all these games play the same according to story anymore... Just crazy man, crazy.

for saving all of the girls on every level. What counts as a level. Just the main 8 or different section in each level?

Depends on the quality of your photo, you can get an A, B or C, plus bonuses for action photos, multiple subjects, etc and also there are special tonics that give you bonuses. You have multiple research levels per splicer, and the higher you get, the slower your progress is, so it depends. But if you just take a snapshot of every Big Daddy, etc it will be no problem to get them.

Upgrade: there are weapon upgrade stations in the levels, you get one upgrade per station and then it looks. So it's completely free. There are two upgrades per weapon and I believe there are about six weapons.

Do you mean the little room with the filmprojector in it, in the Fleet Theater, that does not open untill you defeat Cohen? If so, I have just been there, but no achievement. Would be seriously bad if that would be glitched.

@KMB 316, by taking pictures of the splicer, Big Daddy, etc. The more pictures you take the higher your level gets. When you have taken a picture you will see a bar at the bottom of the screen, you have to fill that bar about four times to fully research something. Very easy stuff. Only hard thing are the Rosies and Bouncers, since the Big Daddies are not very widespread and then you have two different types. You'll wont see a lot of Nitro Splicers either, but enough to fully research them.

Sh*t, did it the wrong way then, first killed him, then went to the room. Ah well, better luck next time, still gotta finish it on hard and save all the little sisters ;)

Thanks for the answer though, I'll be sure to not club him to death with my wrench next time.

Heres a little "guide" to defeat atlas ( i will be working on an Entire walkthrough for the game which i will be posting in a thread when it is complete )

Okay..After Escorting the little sister ( after gaining the achievement "became a big daddy" ) you will come up in a large room. In front of you is a large "Adam" Absorber, Atlas is on it, you have to walk up to him and press A. You will inject him and take some of his adam, When he comes after you just unload on him with your plasmids and weapons ( he will either have an ice, fire or lightning aura around him so exploit that weakness ) Repeat this step another 3 times and after taking his Adam for the last time there will be a cut-scene...After this the achievement will unlock and the "lovely";) ending will reveal :)

Hope this helps... Machllfighter :)

How many Little Sisters are in the game? You get 80 adam for saving them and 160 for harvesting. I'm trying ot figure out if you can save them and still get all the upgrades/slots you need to buy to get all the achievements in one pass of the game.

flip
08-21-2007, 10:54 PM
personally, if you want to get the most achievement points out of this game in one playthrough, just rescue every Little Sister, you will still have enough ADAM to get everything, trust me

the game is pretty sweet :) and this is a great guide :P hopefully its completed soon

BioShock was Soooo wort the wait XD

EDIT~~~ Also i noticed liek that theres no real help with little sisters.... i've just started playing and such and still i have not noticed any little sisters at all (cept the one i saw at the beginning) can someone liek maybe help me :( i know theres like 21 total... but i dont know where any of them are or.. how to find them :(

flip
08-22-2007, 01:18 AM
as i stated in the guide, hitting the start button will reveal how many are in each area and how many you have left. just look for the big daddy's walking around in the main areas of each place, that's where they usually are. also look for Little Sister holes that are on the walls, if you're missing any, a big daddy will usually come by and knock on it to get a Little Sister out and then there you go, another Little Sister to add to your collection ;)

Great guide! I've been slowly using due to the fact that I am so tediously searching everything. I'm really worried I'm going to miss something!!!! I wish there was a menu when you hit the "back button" on your 360 controller that showed you the amount diaries, inventions, etc.

I know the guide says you can go back to areas and defeat Big Daddys..does that mean you can actually go back to different levels and finish them off?

I'm currently in the third level, but I don't have nearly enough firepower, health or money to deal with this big daddy. So I could continue with the campaign, and come back a few days later and finish him off, it would count towards the achievement?

yes, that is correct, you can do this, just you have to do it BEFORE you go into the final area of the game up the elevator

yes, that is correct, you can do this, just you have to do it BEFORE you go into the final area of the game up the elevator

so I guess if I want to eventually go back and get all the diaries and upgrades and stuff, I should keep a game save right before I go up to that area then..

Secret Achievements Below:



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/271/s01.jpg
Defeated Dr. Steinman (15) - Story related, can't miss it.
Tip: Kill his security bot first, then lure him down into the water that is in the lower part of the surgery center and electric bolt him, then shoot at him while not standing in the water, this will make this fight a lot shorter OR, if you decided to keep Incinerate, there is an oil slick that is behind where he was standing to start, light this on fire to kill him faster, then when he goes to the water to put it out, just keep shooting at him in the back to kill him quickly.

Irony (10) - After chosing to kill Sander Cohen, take a picture of his corpse to get this. ****SEE "Find Cohen's Room" FOR THIS****
NOTE: Killing him before he is in his apartment will also prevent you from getting "Weapon Master" as you will be unable to get to the last Power to the People station in Cohen's Personal Quarter's in his apartment in Olympus Heights.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/hA/Xr/0ICLiGJhbC8yFQUbXVdRGEQ4L2FjaC8wL0YAAAAA5+fn-8QFnw==.jpg
Find Cohen's Room (10) - OK, to get this, after finishing Sander Cohen's Masterpiece and getting that achievement, DO NOT kill him. Once you then get to his apartment in Olympus Heights, there will be a door on your right when you enter, kill the 2 people dancing and he will get pissed at you and run down the stairs and come after you, then you can enter his room and get this achievement.
NOTE: It HAS BEEN confirmed that you can get both of these in one play. After killing him in his apartment, you can still take a picture of him and get the "Irony" achievement at the same time, SO I would suggest not killing him after finishing his masterpiece and just killing him after getting this achievement.
Thanks xJACKASS for telling how to get this one!!

It would make it look cleaner, and you could remove the huge red writing, along with an annoying thread title.

For those wondering about Adam, I just finished the game rescuing every little sister and i had enough Adam to buy almost everything. I did get every slot, so i got the achievement for that. I would recommend not buying the second for some of your plasmids, just jump from the first to the third, or only buy the ones you use (i.e. don't buy every ice if you don't like using it.) save your Adam for things you want and you'll have plenty.


Oh, and one more important thing I'd like to note... it REALLY HELPS to save before the end, (and I'm trying to spoil as little as possible)

*save before stepping on to the elevator*

I didn't, so now going for other achievements i have to go back to my last save which was only about at the half way point.:mad:

and I have another question, do hacks and pictures over different games all count toward achievements or just in one play through?

I was confused too. Some people have it wrong.

To find his room, you need to leave him alone after completing his masterpiece. Continue with the game until you get to Olympus Heights. Once you're there, you'll find a room with two people slow-dancing. You'll know it's the room because Cohen will come on the radio and welcome you, but warn you not to bother the two dancers.

Kill the two of them and he'll come running down a staircase from the right. It's a door to the right just before you walk into the room where the dancers are. Run by him up into his room. The achievement will pop up. Then you can dispose of him as you wish and take a picture for the second achievement. Don't forget the Power to the People station in his room either.

You get 80 adam for saving them and 160 for harvesting. I'm trying ot figure out if you can save them and still get all the upgrades/slots you need to buy to get all the achievements in one pass of the game.

You get 80 ADAM for saving them, 160 ADAM for harvesting. However for every three you rescue you'll get rewarded with a teddy bear package. Inside you'll find 200 ADAM, along with two other things (one of which is usually a Plasmid or a Tonic). So in the short term harvesting seems good, but you get more for saving them.

80x3+200=440
160x3=480

You get more by ADAM by Harvesting, but you will not get all the tonics for the achievement and you won't get as much money, plasmids or ammo either.

Rescuing should always be the way to go unless you're playing for fun and want the second ending.

for saving all of the girls on every level. What counts as a level. Just the main 8 or different section in each level?

Easy way to do this..... pause every few minutes or so and you'll see icons on the bottom of the screen telling you how many little sisters are on the part your on..... if it has a big daddy picture you still need to deal with her if theres a little sister picture you've dealt with her

Tonic Collector (50) - To get this, you need to collect 53 Tonics throughout the game, search every room and buy every Tonic from the Gatherer's Garden stations. You should get this right near the end of the game(Plasmids do NOT count towards the 53, only ones from Physical, Engineering and Combat Tonics count towards this).

i got a question after completing the game [i saved right before the elevator so i can hopefully go back and get the 6-7 odd achieves that i missed. [7 including the hard one which'll require a replay]

is there any way to max out all tracks AND get the tonics? every time i went to upgrade i always favoured slots over new abilities but only one would appear, like it wouldn't let me get two more slots in a track. and now i'm at the end of the game with hardly any adam because i grabbed all the abilities/tonics i could from the GG.

so are there slots you can actually pick up/discover? or have i stupidly wasted my adam and i'll have to replay through the game?

Quality Research Photo (20) - Will get when you get "Researched a Splicer", while taking a picture of the Spider Splicers before the Fisherie, you must get an A ranking on any research photo to get this, if you don't get it then, then take an action shot and you will get this.

heres another easier way, when you first get the camera, you have to go research a spider splicer in a romm with a 5 on the door. hes not in there and hes on the roof when you come out, but since its a scripted event he wont attack you yet, easy achievement.

Actually you can get it after the "Dealt with every little sister"Achievement,Once you become a big daddy take pictures of thhe little sisters, then if you still don't have enough info,let something kill the little sister, then go summon a nother one and repeat the process untilyou get the achievement.Well, thats how i did it anyways,hope this helps

and you should NOT buy any health/eye increase upgrades because you will run out of adam and dont buy any plasmids that you wont use for your playing style because plasmids dont go too any achievements

A few things I would like to point out.

!) Did I miss a few achievements in the guide?? I did not see Irony or Find Cohen's Room

2) Speaking of the two achievements... If you want to get both in the same play thru here is how... After you finish his masterpiece and he comes down stairs and opens the glass that has the tonic save. Kill him and take his photo and you will get the Irony achievement. The hit the pause button and reload you save and you will have the Irony achievement and still be able to get into his apartment later in the game after you kill the dancers.

3) Also on the slots save before you play and if you run out of cash just reload and start over.

Fully Research "x" Splicer
- You'll get these once you get the Increased Damage+++ research special. Take as many pictures as you can while the game will still give you research points to get this easier. I suggest buying 100 rolls at a Circus of Value vending machine so that you don't worry about using up all your film while taking pictures. You will get these once you get the research bar full FOUR times for each of them.

I think you should add the what makes you gain & lose how much Research you get from something.

Gain:
Splicer/Machine/Big Daddy Doing Action
Multiple Splicers/Machines/Big Daddies in Picture

Lose:
Splicer/Big Daddy Dead
Already took picture of Splicer/Machine/Big Daddy/Little Sister

Note:
You can't take a picture of a machine after you hack it.

Fully Researched Spider Splicer (10) - Fully research the Spider Splicer with your camera(the ones that climb ceilings and have hooks for hands, you can find these more commonly in Fort Frolic).


When Andrew Ryan blows up the sub with Atlas' family in it, a lot of Spider Splicers will die in the explosion. They won't be worth a ton of Research, but they should give you at least half a bar.

I'm not sure if this was mentioned already, I skimmed through the posts rather quickly...

I spent about $50 on the slots with no avail, until I finally tried the following - pulled the slot arm to get the dials spinning, and as it was still moving, shocked the machine with electrobolt. I got $$$ right away.

Again, I'm not sure if this really worked, or it was pure coincidence. Can anyone confirm?

EDIT: also an easy way to get the 40 hacks/research security bots is to find a checkpoint near a camera, set off the camera. 2 bots come snap some pictures and then zap em' and hack em'. More bots will come as you hack more so if you don't want to risk your bots killing others simply deactivate them after hacking them.

Cohens room achievement will unlock in fort frolic Do NOT kill him before then. You will enter his apartment and see 2 splicers dancing kill them and he charges down the steps through a locked door. Kill him then and go up the stairs to his bedroom.

Cohen's Room is not in Fort Frolic, it is in Olympus Heights. Your encounter with him in Fort Frolic is a few levels before you have a chance to go into his room, so let him be and then have a look for it later.

Hi guys, I've a problem with "avid inventor" , i've reached 53 items invented and i'm at last level..which is the best level to find quickly material to invent item ? Thanks

I'm not sure if this was mentioned already, I skimmed through the posts rather quickly...

I spent about $50 on the slots with no avail, until I finally tried the following - pulled the slot arm to get the dials spinning, and as it was still moving, shocked the machine with electrobolt. I got $$$ right away.

Again, I'm not sure if this really worked, or it was pure coincidence. Can anyone confirm?
:confused:

I just got this one and after about 20 tries normal I started zapping it and got it on the second try, so maybe there's something to the whole zapping thing.

Check and see what achievements you are missing and if it is one of the enemies that you don't get achievements for then it has to be either a turret, bot, or camera. You can just take a picture of any of these and it will tell you that research is complete or not

Having real trouble getting avid inventor

I played through on normal (exploring everywhere) and didnt get it so on my second playthrough on hard I saved all items i picked up until the very last level but only had enough stuff to make 40-50 items, even with the tonics.

I have loads of nails and rubber hoses but not enough kerosene or batteries or enzyme.

Would i be able to drop the difficulty to easy and run back to all areas i missed in my 2nd playthrough to collect items and then try and get the achieve. I dont want to have to go back and search on hard because i'm dying way to often for it to be fun anymore.

All i can suggest is going back to the earlier levels the enemies will re spawn kill them for the components you will need to do it on your current difficulty level you cant drop the difficulty level I'm afraid

i got this as soon as i hacked my first turret but i did it manually rather than using a hack tool. ive never heard of anyone saying its glitched, but i had something wierd happen with the screen on one of my saves once and had to revert to an older one, so maybe your save file is messed up. why not start a new one to get it as it really doesnt take long at all to come across your first turret in order to get the achievemtn, then you can go back to your other save to finish off the game

People have been saying that they have lasted the whole game on hard without using the chamber and did not get this 'bulletproof' achievement. No i do not know how reliable the source is but I just thought I should mention that. Maybe the makers put this rumour of this achievement out in the open to get people playing it again, maybe the achievement is for some thing small that not many people would think about, or maybe a certain amount of time played? I was just thinking that way I may be way off but I guess only time will tell. :)

Yes you can unlock it now, you must beat the game on hard without using a vita chamber. If you die, you need to reload a previous save. You are also supposed to be able to turn vita chambers off, then it would be just like when you die against the final enemy.

Can we add to the guide for the new achievement, that it is a good tip to use target dummy when facing ATLAS. This seriously makes ATLAS a hell of a lot easier, because ATLAS and the splicers do not even bother attacking you when the taget dummy is used, allowing you to take loads of health off ATLAS without him or any other enemy attacking you. It really makes it a lot easier.

The achievement will unlcok as soon as you are unable to research anything else. It must be in a single play, all the achievements are in a single play. Please read the FAQs.

Lordvader178
01-18-2008, 07:46 AM
hey guys, not sure if this was posted already but i just got some things to say. First off your missing the new achievment:

"Brass Balls" - Complete Bioshock on hard without using a vita-chamber 100G

Secondly i have a tip for Atlas. Get your chemical thrower ready with full electric gel. Stab him like you normally do, then unload on him with electrioc gel. The gel whittles down his health AND it makes him immobile. he will be stunned as long as you keep a constant stream on him. once you do that, the secruity bots will come out. Just ignore them then repeat. then the splicers come. Repeat the strategy, ignoring the splicers and he will be down for the count, without him doing any damage to you :)

Also i said to ignore the other enimies because even if they do start to damage you, you can usually drain Atlas' health bar before you die, then when he is up on the adam drainer, heal and repeat.

Well on the apartments there is one that says Cohen... Its the apartment where you see 2 splicers dancing and he tells you (over the radio) to dont disturb them, you have to do the opposite attack them or whatever, then he will come out from the second floor (from a blocked door), then you just have to kill him, the weapon upgrade is in that room (do what ever achievements you are up for as well, like irony).

No i gained brass balls with vita chamber on, i just reloaded when i got killed, do the same... here they reccomend you to disable so you dont have a bad surprise and not get the achievement (in case you die, and dont remember, continue playing, and finishing the game= no achievement)... just be careful to reload when you die and you'll be fine.

If you find yourself running low on eve and not sure if you'll be able to collect 53 tonics AND max all track then you can save up your eve at the end and then max all tracks at the last garden, reload and then buy the tonics you need... Just remember that you can only add one slot per category per gatherer's garden, so max all tracks so that you only have 1 left for each before the last machine. I was worried about this, but in the end I had plenty of eve, even though I had been buying health and eve upgrades along the way! Thanks to the downloadable tonics, it should be a cakewalk, but this option is available if you need it.

Nope you havent done anything wrong, since its your first playthough, its obvious you havent checked Faqs (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36383) which is good by the way, you dont want any info wreck this awesome game exp, the little sister achievement unlocks when you have finished the game (when you defeated Fontaine).

Hi all,
I just completed the game, and want to go back through certain sections to pick up a few more points.

I didnt find sander cohens appartment on my first walkthrough, so loaded up my save just before fighting atlas / fontaine and went back to the bathsphere to go down to Hephaestus (or however its spelt).

There is a section there where you have to go through a bulk head door into (I think) Olympus Heights ?? The section where you get the mind control antidote, but now the door wont open.

I reloaded an old save and found the appartment and got the 10 points, but is there anyway I can get it from my save at the end cos I only need that 1 weapon upgrade station for weapon specialist acheivement.

Please dont say I have to play through again just to get that:mad:

Also which section would be the best for Bouncer research? Every big daddy I seem to come across seems to be a rosie, cant seem to find the bouncers for some reason.

You should be able to go back through that bulkhead. Try going back again, it mihgt be some error in the game. Otherwise, I'm afriad you will need to do a quick run through of the game to get those last stations.

Bouncers can be found in the medical pavillion, hephaestus contro, orl olympic heights.

Hi there.
No joy, had to reload the save from right back in the game and go again from there.

You say the bouncers are in medical pavillion, hephaestus control, or olympic heights. Will they re spawn cos I killed pretty much every big daddy I came across...Just forgot to photograph them:confused:

Yeah, Big Daddies are infinate, line them up among their buddies. Just have a line of 20 or so. The bouncers give you enough money to replenish your supplies to kill the next big daddy.

Listen for thier footsteps.

I downloaded the DLC but I didn't see " Disable Vita Chamber" in my options , Why?
I finished the game on Hard and every time I died I loaded my last save . but when I finished the Game the achievement didn't unlocked,why?

So, I just got the "Brass Balls" and "Seriously Good At This" achievements by loading an easy save that was before the last boss battle, then switching the difficulty to hard in the options menu. I'm wondering, did no one else try this to see if it worked? Since it's not in the guide and I didn't see it mentioned here I thought I'd bring it up.

Has anyone verified this?

Well, it 1/2 worked for me!

I Got the Seriously Good At This Achievement yesterday (4/9/08) by doing this. I then started a new game and played through the game on Easy with Vita-Chambers turned off and when I got to Fontaine I changed the setting to Hard and I just beat it just an hour ago and it didn't give me the Brass Balls Achievement. So... maybe you can still get the Seriously Good At This Achievement still, but they fixed the Brass Balls Achievement so that you couldn't do it like that anymore.

Oh Well.

Hi all,
I just completed the game, and want to go back through certain sections to pick up a few more points.

I didnt find sander cohens appartment on my first walkthrough, so loaded up my save just before fighting atlas / fontaine and went back to the bathsphere to go down to Hephaestus (or however its spelt).

There is a section there where you have to go through a bulk head door into (I think) Olympus Heights ?? The section where you get the mind control antidote, but now the door wont open.

I reloaded an old save and found the appartment and got the 10 points, but is there anyway I can get it from my save at the end cos I only need that 1 weapon upgrade station for weapon specialist acheivement.

Please dont say I have to play through again just to get that:mad:

Also which section would be the best for Bouncer research? Every big daddy I seem to come across seems to be a rosie, cant seem to find the bouncers for some reason.

Cheers

The beginning of the game seems to be mainly bouncers and elite bouncers. I've had 3 playthroughs, and from what I can tell, most of the Big Daddy's wandering around (no little sister) seems to be a bouncer.

If im right, yeah you can leave little sisters untouched and get the achievement... I did rescue them all, but only because i like finishing the games properly (if i really like the game).

Yes, it is possible. You just have to save all the Little Sisters, play on Hard, and never ever respawn at a vita-chamber. Other than that, just be careful how you spend your Adam.

Yea.
I may just make a run through on normal and get everything but the Hard and Brass Balls achievements.
The do those without having to worry about anything else.

i just finished the game (by the way its awesome) I got every achievement in this my first time playing through the game except fot the achievement of 'Tonic Collector" Guys be careful getting this achievement, I bought every item out of the eve's garden (if im not mistaken the name) and still had about 200 adam left before fighting the last guy...what this means is that i missed a few tonics along the way(which i doubt it) or most likely is that i didnt Invent a few more tonics, even though i couldnt invent any of them towards the end and i was loaded with items, go figure. Once again guys be careful going for this achievement because is VERY tricky....I love this game but im not doing it all over again for 50 points...at the end 950 is better than nothing...Good luck and enjoy your game.

P.S: I saved every Lil' sister

Oldbeagle
07-13-2008, 02:25 AM
I wish I had played through on HARD. I dont feel like going through again for the 2 achievements. All i need now is to invent items.

For the above person, if you have adam left over check the list on the main page. Most tonics are fairly cheap. And if you bought everything and invented (there are 3? to invent), check the list. I missed one in Point Prometheus. I was excited about being a BD, and didnt see it on the shelf. The list helps out alot. Using the list with a walkthrough will tell you pretty much exactly where it is.

This game was sweet. I cant believe I put it off as long as I did.

Update to the tonic collecter achievement. The dlc tonics you get for 1 adam DO count for this achievement. I just got the achiev, and still have 3 tonics to find according to the list of tonics guide I am using. I bought 3 of the dlc 1 adam tonics, unlocking the achiev.

As far as ppl having enough adam issues, I have 517 extra adam right now, and have bought nearly everything. I have all tracks maxed, and health/eve maxed. Looking at a gatherer's garden screen right now, adding up everything I have not bought equals 189 adam, and I still have 1 more little sister to save on this level. And I rescued all the sisters so far. So it seems to me you get plenty of adam for everything in this game.

hmm... i loaded up an old save and went back to Neptune's bounty for the weapon upgrade (i missed it somehow,) i bumped a wall on my way out and everything got funky (e.g. all the dark looked darker and the light looked lighter. The strangest part was the screen got covered in lines and its really hard to navigate. i loaded up a new save and it only happens in neptunes bounty. i would upload screens but i need a new copy.
(it got a small crack near the center and now i cant play it.)

The amount of work you all put into these guides is amazing. Great work and thank you for the help. When I play a game I try to finish it. I search everywhere and check the map all the time. Couldn't wait to get the camera. I took pictures of everything - and as many as I could of each person. Eventually you can't take anymore because the score is too low. Didn't have any trouble unlocking all the research achievements that way though. Good luck to everyone this game is pretty cool - only paid $20 at Target on clearance.

oh and, i know this off subject, but concerning the battle with Atlas, a way to help you beat him is, when he summons the helicopter security drones, freeze them and hack them (use an automatic hack tool) and now, with them on your side, the fight is wayway easier. i beat atlas in less than ten minutes.

No, you CAN get them all on 1 playthrough if you download the dlc and the update (for brass balls)and you finish it on hard (doing all the other achievements obviously).
All the achievements can be unlocked on any difficulty except Seriously Good At This (finish the game on hard) and Brass Balls (finish the game on hard without using a Vita-Chamber).

Just got the last 2 achievements i needed for the 1100/1100
(Historian + Tonic Collector)

But i think something is incorrect... In the guide it says, you need to save every little sister since they give u a tonic at the end of the game..
No! I got the tonic Collector at the part where you turn into a big daddy, and i saved all until that point, bought a tonic at the Gatherer's Garden and BAM! achievement unlocked. it said i only saved 1 little sister on the level i was on so yeah.
You don't even need to beat the entire game for the tonic collector (and historian)

fah queue00000
03-13-2009, 04:20 PM
yes, i am attempting to do that now.... just save all the little sisters and no not kill sander cohen after u do some work for him.... also dont buy any non tonic/plasmid stuff until the very end (after u have all the of fill tracks/tonic/plasmid achievements)... and be on the ball about the audio diaries, check at the end of every level

Telexen
03-13-2009, 06:50 PM
If you can get through Hard on the first playthrough...then yes. I wouldn't though. This game is definitely worth multiple playthroughs.

Don't worry about not buying non-tonic/plasmid upgrades (health and eve upgrades)...you'll have plenty of Adam to get all the tonics and plasmids you need for that achievement. The DLC will give you a ton for 1 Adam if you end up needing them. Just don't buy a health upgrade at every single Gatherer's Garden and you should be fine...I think I got the achievement 3/4 of the way into the game.

Fully Research "x" Splicer
- You'll get these once you get the Increased Damage+++ research special. Take as many pictures as you can while the game will still give you research points to get this easier. I suggest buying 100 rolls at a Circus of Value vending machine so that you don't worry about using up all your film while taking pictures. You will get these once you get the research bar full FOUR times for each of the



sO I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN PICTURES FOR ALL ENEMIES, TURRETS AND BOTS. I HAVE ALSO GOTTEN THE RESEARCH PHD ACHIEVEMENT BUT I'D LIKE TO KNOW ON JUST EXACTLY HOW THIS ONE WORKS,.. I CANT TAKE PICTURES ANYMORE, WHAT AM I MISSING.

If I'm understanding you right, you want to know how the extra damage bonus works? It's automatic, no need to equip or do anything special. If you got the achievement in your current game, there's nothing left for you to do. If you're playing a new game and are not sure, try to take a picture of a enemy you haven't photographed and it will either update your research progress or it will tell you if your research is done.

Did you set Hard as your difficulty at the beginning of the game? Also, did you ever change the difficulty at some point in the game? If you did, that would void the achievement.

As for the Vita-Chamber, you have to have the option for them to be disabled on. If you don't and you die, it immediately voids the achievement, even if you load the game.

No, you only appear in one when you die. If you download the free download on the Marketplace you can disable them so when you die you just get brought to the main menu.

just checking somthing

"Tonic Collector (50) - To get this, you need to collect 53 Tonics throughout the game, search every room and buy every Tonic from the Gatherer's Garden stations. You should get this right near the end of the game(Plasmids do NOT count towards the 53, only ones from Physical, Engineering and Combat Tonics count towards this).
Tip: Don't buy all of the Health and EVE upgrades as you will not have enough to be able to buy every Tonic that you need for this achievement. Also, you WILL need to save every Little Sister to be able to aquire this achievement. Wait until the third upgrade for the Plasmids appear, this will help save a lot of ADAM needed for this achievement."

does this mean if i see the Hacker's Delight 3. i can only buy no.3 and wont need to buy 1 and 2?

or do i have to buy 1 2 and 3

if hackers delight is a plasmid, you just have to buy the third one.

if it is a tonic then I think you have to get all versions.

What the part you quoted is saying is, because the achievement for getting 53 tonics uses a lot of ADAM, when you buy plasmids (which dont count for the achievement, they are used for combat) you should buy plasmid 3 instead of 1 or 2 because it is a better version and will cancel out 1 or 2 which means waste of ADAM.
