Anyone know where these two are? I swear I've looked everywhere, and they are the only two that I am missing...

I've achieved the "Dealt with Every Little Sister" and the "Little Sister Savior Award", but I've got 52 Tonics and I'm missing the Prolific Inventor. Is this a screw up in the game or it it sitting somewhere waiting? I was under the impression it was just one of those that you got when you rescued the last little sister.

Did you get the last gift they give you? It's in the teddy bear, not given to you right away.

I always collected my gifts. I knew every teddy bear had ADAM and other things. Is it at the Gatherer's Garden that you reach after escorting the Little Sister in Proving Grounds before going up the elevator? Is it possible for the teddy bears to disappear?

No, I believe it was in the section with the "Little Wonders" store on the top level in the back, across from where Little Wonders was. Check there.

I know this is a very strange problem, but I went back and checked my save point which was right after getting the "Dealt with Every Little Sister" Achievement, and inside the bear was 200 ADAM, some ammo, and another item, but it wasn't the tonic because I picked everything up from the bear again, and still didn't see it say anything about getting another tonic. Is this some sort of glitch in the game?

The gifts you get from Little Sisters should always be the same shouldn't they? So the second gift I get will be the same as the second gift John Doe in Montana gets. If the tonic wasn't in the last gift then you have a pretty big problem and might need to play through again to get all tonics, unless you have an earlier save file from then and just use that one to find the rest of them.

How far back? I've used my last save to go back and collect the ones I missed. I have other saves, but I think I should have gotten the achievement but I checked the last gift again and no tonic in the bear! I don't understand this. I wanted to get all those on the easy play through, but it's looking like I'm going to have to collect as go through on Hard. It's just aggrivating because I wanted as many achievements as possible the first play through. I can't achieve the Research PhD because I hacked almost every camera and turret. It's very easy to screw yourself, and now I know the play throuhg on Hard is going to be a pain.

believe it or not but hard really isnt all that hard. The only thing is that BD's are not as easy to kill as they were in medium. let me just say this....the wrench FTW!!! I used that badboy all the way to end. And for some strange reason i had WAY more money than i had when i played medium. So i would always be at max health and Eve.

Thanks for all the help. I feel better about going through it on Hard now.

okay well im sure almost everyone is having trouble with the prolific tonic. I myself only need this one too. I saved every little girl becuase i certainly dont recall pushing X on any. Im not even sure what happens when you harvest them. I get the last girl in promethues i get a gift and bam i get a whole medkit 200 adam and anti personnel ammo. Where exactly is this last tonic from the gift? Is it at the end when your going to last boss and your following the LS or ? Can any one please help us. I followed the guide on this site and it said it was the last gift you get. Does anyone have any idea where else i could find or get this achievement. While playiong on hard i remember getting it close to the end of the game. But not what the guide says.

As discussed in the guide and many other places, this is in the last teddy bear you get, by the vending machine across from Little Wonders.

The tonic thread is stickied for a reason, please use it.

Welcome to the site, you're new here, so you should read [this (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=33662)]. You should have asked this question in this [thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=35852&page=6)] after you had tried searching the Bioshock thread for "prolific inventor".

So where is the Prolific Inventor? I was given the achievement for saving all the little sisters I encountered and just banged on the wall to get the little sister to open the door so I can go to the door and fight Fountaine.

Are you awarded this tonic AFTER the game ends?
It is in the 6th gift. You probably missed it since you rescued all the sisters already. Hopefuly you have a save before Point Prometheus, preferably in Apollo Square before you harvested the last sister there.

You are doing something wrong, to figure out waht your are doing wrong requires more information about your little sister rescues.

No, it's a tonic needed for the Tonic Collector achievement (50G).

I just got that tonic, I got it after saving the two little sisters from Apollo Square. At first I thought that I was gonna get it once I reached the next level but I went to buy some tonics and there it was. xD I dunno what happens if you miss it.

If you miss it, it disappears. Miss by either walking right past it or recieving another gift. Not sure if you can leave the level and get it when you come back. Best policy is to go and find it as soon as Tennenbaum talks to you over the radio.

i was just about to say the same thing. as soon as she starts blabbering on about one of her little ones bringing you a gift you should just get straight to the gathers garden and it will be there. access the gift and dont turn your view away from it till your done with it because as soon as its out of view after accessing it once it disappears!

i would imagine what you have done is accidently not gone to collect the gift when she's announced ones being sent there and it will most likely have disappeared by you moving onto the next area. have fun on your replay!

I have saved every little sister and still havent gotten this. So I have multiple questions on how to get my tonic collector.

#1. Am I screwed out of this completly or can I go back and grab it from a teddy bear, considering it wasnt in the last one.

#2 IT says you need 53 right? Where does downloadable content come into play, because that comes with like 3 tonics, does any one know if those count or not if so it can really save my ass.

*edit* I guess the downloads count because I just got it *edit*

if you havenīt yet, you can buy any tonic from the free DLC at the machines for $1 and get the achievement.

Unfortunately, if you missed a gift from Tennenbaum, you can't get it back.
