Warning: This FAQ may contain spoilers on the storyline. Do not read it if you are concerned about this.


Q: Can I collect some of the Diaries/Tonics/Research in one game and finish in another game?
A: No, all of them have to be collected on the same save.

Q: I just got the "Dealt With All Little Sisters" achievement, and I Rescued all of them, but I did not get "Little Sister Savior" - Why is this?
A: This unlocks at the end of the game, not after saving the last sister.

Q: How do I find Cohen's Room?
A: After you finish his masterpiece, let him live. In the level "Olympus Heights" (go to Point Prometheus and through the bulkhead at the back of the level) is his house. Kill the two dancing freaks inside and he will get mad and come down out of his room. Kill him and go up.

Q: I Killed Cohen earlier, can I get the "Cohen's Room" or "Weapon Specialist" achievements somehow?
A: No, you will need to start a new game.

Q: Can you return to levels later in the game to find things I missed?
A: Yes, you can use the sub anytime to return to another level. After you do the Escort Little Sister quest as a Bid Daddy, make sure you save before you ride the elevator to fight Atlas, otherwise you will not be able to go back and finish anything.

The only exception is the very beginning level, which has two Diaries in it and a small section of Hephaestus (control room), which has one Diary in it. See the next question about those.

Q: Where is xxx Diary?
A: Please see this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36010).

Q: Where is xxx Weapon Upgrade Station?
A: Please see this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36125).

Q: Where is xxx Tonic/Plasmid?
A: Please see this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=35852).

Q: Can you get 1000 in one play through?
A: Absolutely, but you have to be careful. Follow the three links above to get those achievements and make sure you save often in case you screw something up.
-Start the game on hard.
-Rescue every little sister.
-Do not kill Cohen until after you've been in his room in Olympus Heights.
-Find all Diary/Tonic/Weapon Upgrades.
-50 Hacks/100 Invents/Complete Research.
-Do not spend ADAM on anything but tonics until you have all the purchasable ones, then buy other things.

Q: How long is this game?
A: Simply playing for fun will take 18-22 hours.

Q: How long for the full 1000?
A: Using a guide and starting on Hard, you can do it in one play, with just a little extra searching, so 22-25 hours roughly.

Q: Do Buy-Outs and Auto-Hacks count toward the 50 Hacks achievemet?
A: They most certainly do.

Q: What is the code for xxx?
A: Fontaine's Elevator: It is in one of the Audio Diaries in this level, 5744.
A: Twilight Fields, after you get Incinerate: On a piece of paper by the coffin, 0451.
A: Point Prometheus, near the hanging Big Daddy suits, 1921.
A: Mariska Lutz's Appartment: In the audio diary "Masha Come Home", 7533.
A: Room with steel bars underneath Fontaine Fisheries: In the audio diary "Picked Up Timmy H.", 5380.

Q: I died while fighting a Big Daddy and now his Little Sister is gone. Did I miss my chance to Harvest/Rescue her?
A: Nope, just don't kill the Big Daddy and wait for him to go to one of the holes in the wall and knock on it. The Little Sister will crawl back out. Even if you do kill the original Big Daddy, another will spawn and get her out as well.

Q: It doesn't appear I'm making progress with research. How exactly does this work?
A: You have to completely fill the bar four times before you're done with a subject. You can take a picture 4-5 times of the same person before they stop giving research. Just take pictures of every enemy before you kill them, you'll get it eventually.

Q: There is an option to change the difficulty during the game. If I play until the final boss on easy/medium, then switch to hard, will I get the achievement for hard?
A: No, you must start and play through the entire game on hard to get the achievement.

Q: Why can't I get a jackpot for the "Lucky Winner" achievement?
A: It's a very random achievement. Some people get it after two minutes, some after twenty. All the machines are the same, but stick with the same one, because it eventually pays out. Moving from machine to machine may reset your chance. Save your game when you have a bunch of money and play until you've either got the achievement or gone broke. If you go broke, reload your save and try again.

Q: Will I get enough ADAM by Rescuing the Sisters, or do I need to Harvest them?
A: I personally saved them all, and I had over a thousand ADAM left at the end. However, I did not buy any plasmids. You can easily get all the achievements by Rescuing, just make sure you only buy items you need for the achievements.

Q: Do you get more ADAM by Harvesting or Rescuing?
A: You get slightly more by Harvesting. 160x3=480 compared to 80x3+200=440. As stated above, you can buy everything for the achievements either way you go.

Q: Can you increase the wallet size?
A: Nope, you get 500 max the whole game.

Q: In the Medical Center, how do you open the locked office next to the guy hanging out the window?
A: Once you get telekinesis, return here and use it through the broken window. It will grab the key off the wall.

Q: Help! I've lost a plasmid/tonic! (or) How do I know what tonics/plasmids I still need to collect?
A: You haven't lost anything. These are split into four different "tracks" so you're probably just looking in the wrong one. Plasmids are all in one track, tonics are split into Combat, Physical and Engineering. Either that, or you've unequipped it, and it's sitting in a Gene Bank. To know which ones you need to collect, go to a Gene Bank and it shows all the ones you have in your inventory.

Q: If we aren't supposed to kill Cohen so we can get into his room, how do we get the key to open the locked chest in Fort Frolic?
A: Once you get to Olympus Heights and get into his room, you are able to kill him and loot the key. Then you just take the sub back to Fort Frolic to open it.

Q: If one of the Little Sisters die when you are escorting them in the last level, do you not get "Little Sister Savior?"
A: No, it doesn't matter. They can die and you will still get the achievement.

Q: I have all the research achievements, why did I not get the PHD achievement?
A: You also have to fully research security robots (flying guys), security cameras and turrets. Both RPG and gun turrets count together, you do not have to do those separately.

Q: What all do I need for the Research PHD?
A: Every type of splicer (Thug, Gun, Spider, Houdini, Nitro), both Big Daddy types (Rosie, Bouncer), a Little Sister, as well as Turrets (RPG and Gun count as the same), Security Cameras and Security Bots.

Q: How can I see how many Diaries I have collected?
A: Hit the Back button and then hit RB twice to get to the Messages section. This is split up between levels. See the stickied Diary Location Thread to see how many are in each level and then you can verify which ones you still need to collect.

Q: What is the difference between a Bouncer and a Rosie?
A: Both are Big Daddies, but the Bouncer is the one with the Drill-Hand and the Rosies are the ones with the Bolt Guns.

Q: Can you get achievements playing on Easy difficulty?
A: Of course! All but "Seriously Good at This" obviously. ;)

Q: Can you return to levels later in the game to find things I missed?
A: Yes, you can use the sub anytime to return to another level. Before you ride the elevator to fight Atlas, save your game and you may finish the collect achievements.

Not entirely true. There are a couple exceptions.

1. You can't go back to the first stage and pick up the first 2 diaries.
2. There seems to be a few diaries in the control room in Hephaestus that you can't return and get either.

The Pants Party
08-23-2007, 08:46 PM
Good call, I forgot about that. There is only one Diary in the control room, but it's right on the console, so it's hard to miss. But you're right, you can't go back if you do miss it.

One question I would like answering, and one I see popping up a bit, is where using auto-hacks and buy-outs counts towards the 50 successful hacks achievement. They count towards the individual ones so logic dictates that they would count towards the 50, but it will need checking.

The Pants Party
08-23-2007, 09:15 PM
Good question, Zef. I can confirm buyouts and auto-hacks work. I counted mine out and got my 50th on an autohack. I'll add it.

hopefully it will aleve some of the spam that has been cluttering this board, but you know it won't because people will overlook this thread and post about it anyway. good luck monitoring these threads :)

also, maybe another question to answer up there is the one for fontaine's elevator code, which of course the answer would be 5744. just a thought :)

Hmm... I can't find Cohen's Room. I know you said it's in Olympus Heights, but where should I take the submarine to find Olympus Heights? Oh, and I just finished the game; I'll still be able to get those Achievements for that part, right? Thanks. :)

Okay, so I understand that we shouldn't kill Cohen, but how do we get into that locked box on the "Masterpiece" level, if he keeps the key? Are we able to get the key later and take the bathosphere back to that level?

Exactly! I don't know what's in the box, as I never went back for it. But once you get into his room and kill him, you loot the key off him and can return through the sub. You apparently don't need it for any achievement though, I got the 1000 without ever going back to open it. But now I'm curious...

There was just some ammo, health packs and I think £100 but nothing special. I saved the game after I finished the masterpiece then killed him to see if it was worth going back after I get to the end of the game. To be honest it's not and like you worked out Pants, there is nothing in the box that is really of any use and chances are you have full health and enough ammo anyway.

I was wondering whether it is possible to go back and finish researching the little sisters after you have rescued/harvested them all because i just need that and bouncer research. I know it's unlikely but i was wondering maybe if any other little sister come out of the vents at all, just incase.

08-25-2007, 08:46 PM
On the level with the fisheries and wharfs (the one where you first get the research camera) i ended up somehow rescuing 4 little sisters, even though it showed that there should be only 3. Toward the end of the level, it warned me that i missed a little sister! I must have glitched the level somehow. Anyone else have this happen, and will it screw up the little sister achievements at the end? Thanks in advance. I'd be willing to start over if i have to, since its not too very far in. So please respond before i waste my time. Thanks in advance.

OK so I've been checking out different forums to see if I can get help, but no luck so far. So lets see if these forums can help.

Regarding the Research PHD achievement, I've fully reseach every enemy that I needed to, I got all those achievements. So thats taken care of, now I fully researched the security camera, flying gun bots and the gun turret. I know I did due to not being able to take anymore pictures of them, I've tried zooming in and different angles and I still can't take a pictue of them, so I know those are fully reseached. So with all this done I still haven't gotten the achievement. I will say this, when I got the achievement for fully reseaching the "Little Sister", instead of getting the animation on screen that shows the "+++", I got a different animation saying something else. So something went wrong, maybe its just a glitch that only I have experienced or maybe its a glitch that alot of people are having trouble with.

If anyone can help, that would be great, but for the love of god, please do not reply to my post with "make sure you fully researched everything......." or "make sure you fully research the camera, turret and bot......".

Hey guys i have a question. I seem to have a problem with the second last mission. When the little sister drains adam from the last test subject she keeps draining adam from the corpse until I leave her. When I return she finishes draining the adam but she doesn't move on. I tried reloading the game and leaving the level and coming back again and it still happens. I don't know what it is, but anyone knows reply back as soon as you can. Thank you.

08-26-2007, 02:39 AM
If there are enemies nearby she won't move on, so try to eliminate all of them. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure...if the problem keeps happening, then try letting her get killed maybe...and go knock on the vent with your wrench to summon another one. That's all I can think of.

Thanks for that, but I also tried that last night as well. I did kill the big daddy that was up ahead, but nothing happened. After that their are no other threats in the hallways and I can't get any of the enemies from the hallways to kill the little sister after she get adams.

ok so on the point prometheus level when you become the big daddy and get the little sister out of the vent, I go in to the sphere and it says I have not harvested / saved all the little sisters in this deck etc.... and I have gone back from the beginging to the end and I can't find anything....Please help me someone.....

IDR SeMiNoLe
08-26-2007, 04:52 PM
You must not have gotten them all....I know this may sound stupid, but hit start and check to see if all the little faces are filled in. There are 3 in that area. One in Optimized Eugenics, one in the place across from it...and one in Little Wonders...Make sure you follow the big daddies to the holes and wait for the Little Sisters to pop out....if that doesnt work then u have a glitch or something lol....or maybe there are sisters that u missed in previous levels...but i dont think thats it since it said "on this deck"

Edit: @ MASTERCHEAT....the enemies should be able to kill her if you let them...idk why that would be a problem....did you restart from the beginning when she is getting adam from the FIRST body (test subject # 1)?... b/c there should be multiple waves of enemies from then on

I let the enemies kill her, but then it takes me back to the station were subject 3 is and the little sister does it again. I don't know what I can do now. I think I tried everything and I don't want to restrat the game. Please someone help me before I go insane and quit on this great game. PLEASE!

08-27-2007, 12:34 AM
Stay with her some time (try to let her finish), and if she doesnt moves then let her die (or kill her firing up something near), but that problems seems really rare, i mean maybe theres something with your game or something.

Shinobi273
08-27-2007, 10:24 PM
For the 9th question: Can you get 1000 in one play through?

Could you add that you shouldn't buy too many health/eve increases or plasmids to the list of things you have to do. I was going through the threads and found that alot of ppl ran out of Adam when they bought too much and didn't save for tonics when also saving all sisters. I haven't actually beaten the game yet, but like I said, it seems to be the case in the forums that if you don't save Adam for tonics, you won't have enough to buy everything.

So please respond before i waste my time. Thanks in advance.

OK, so after no answer, i kept playing to see and this is what i found out:

If you get an extra LS on a level, it's ok. You will still get the achievement for "Dealt with every Little Sister" as soon as you deal with the total number expected by the game. So if you get one extra LS on a level, you will get the achievement when there is still one LS left. At least this is what happened for me. I went ahead and got every LS, beat the game and got the "Savior" achievement as well. So it does not seem to affect either of those achievements at all.

However, i am missing the "Armored Shell 2" tonic, that (according to the guide) can only be obtained by a gift given after rescuing Little Sisters. I have gone to every Gatherer's Garden, and cannot locate any gifts. And i am pretty certain that i went and got each gift as soon as it was available, so the above glitch may have screwed that up for me. Not positive though. Any help with that particular issue would be appreciated.

*spoiler warning and whatnot*

This may have been answered before but... Do plasmids and tonics carry over from one Garden to the other?

Also, since I'm missing a fully researched Nitro splicer and Rosie (apart from the Little Sisters and some automated systems), I was wondering if there was some guide for the population of each area? In other words, I'm in Hepheastus (sp?) recently so do I need to backtrack to get those two subjects researched or will they pop up later on?

Anyways, cheers for the FAQ mate!

Answer to question 1: some do, some don't. Some reports are that Tonics do not carry over, so it would be wise to purchase them when you find them. Plasmids can carry over, and get cheaper when higher level versions appear.

Question 2: They do pop up again, but you can always go back to earlier levels to get them if you need to. Now, a WARNING: Once someone tells you that "There is no turning back from here" then you will want to backtrack and get whatever you need to for your various achievements before continuing forward.

If anyone can help, that would be great, but for the love of god, please do not reply to my post with "make sure you fully researched everything......." or "make sure you fully research the camera, turret and bot......".

Hey man, if this hasnt been answered yet than ignore my post and kick me in the nuts.

Alright so first off dont worry about not getting +++ on the little sisters. Since you cant attack little sisters they dont give you a +++ damage reward, its a eve and health bonus. Second off, the only advice i can think of is did you search BOTH rosies and bouncers?

Bouncers are the Bid Daddies with the drill hand. Rosies are the ones with the Guns. Added to the FAQ.

First of all. Thanks for the FAQ's and Guide's. I really wish I would have read the SPOLIERS when I tried to avoid them at all costs. I went ahead with the game trying to find anything I could and well I fell some achievements short. I'm now working on a second run through on the HARD difficulty and I'm looking to complete the achievements I missed. I need to work on getting Weapon Specialist, Research PhD, Avid Inventor, Tonic Collector, Historian, Seriously Good At This, Dealt with every Little Sister, Lucky Winner, and the secret achievement Irony. So how up-to-date is the Diary Location guide? I know some members have stated they found some not listed and so that could throw us all off if we don't have a completed list. Research PhD, I believe I didn't research the turrets and bots enough. Avid Inventor, how do you invent 100 items. I picked up alot of things on the first run. I'll see how I do on this second run. I need to get the 1000. lol.

I just beat the game and have started to run through it again to pick up the achievements I missed the first time through. One thing I noticed was that the first Diary wasn't on the table outside of the bathroom at the very beginning. However the one in the bathroom was there. If I recall correctly I did pick up the diary on the table the first time through but not the one in the bathroom. Is it safe to assume then that on a 2nd or 3rd play through the only diaries left behind are the ones you did not pick up your previous times through?

Umm, no that isn't true. I restarted 3 times and all the audio diaries are there. If it isn't in your log of diaries, it is still out there. I think the first diary is downstairs on the table. Don't quote me on that, I'm only like 70% sure.

Generally I don't leave an area until I searched everywhere, yes it takes forever to progress, especially when the splicers continuously spawn. It's such a pain in the ass, where do they come from? I just let myself go invisible and shotgun them as they walk past or let security cams catch them. As a bonus, I never run out of money or ammo.

ok no problem.. im only asking because i really need to photograph more little sisters.

edit:
To all, who are going back rather than starting a new game, i found this the easiest but then again quite long thing to do,
what i did was go into the proving grounds, hit on the vent and then let a splicer kill the little sister but before i did that i took a few pictures first, then repeat, since the little sisters are always respawning with the vents.

You need to pick those up right away. Forget about what you are doing at the moment and go to the nearest gatherers garden. Once you see it, pick it up, eventually it will disappear.

Nitro Splicers are found in Fontaine Fisheries in the area with the first Rosie. You should also try Olympus Heights. I'm not sure where you can find Houdini Splicers. You need to research turrents, bots, and cameras. It's listed in the FAQ, try to read next time. So if you haven't done the turrents, you're probably restarting anyway and it doesn't matter anymore.

This might be a stupid question, but I just started playing this game today. Once you start out, you have 2 slots for everything. I have three plasmids that I want, but I only have 2 slots. The game says to buy more slots at Gatherer's Garden. I went to one of them and it didn't have a "Slot" item to buy. Do I have to buy something that would fill the slot to make a new slot or do I have to find a Gatherer's Garden that has a "Slot" item to buy?

Once I do find a way to get a new slot, will I get the plasmid that I got rid of back? I had Electro Bolt and Incinerate, but I needed to pick up the Telekinesis to bust through the rubble using enemy grenades, so I got rid of Incinerate. Does this mean I have to like buy it back or will it just give it back to me?

all un-used tonics and plasmids are stored at gene-banks...... they are free to equip however and whenever you go to one.

Various items appear in gatherers garden at various times in the game. I believe the first chance to buy extra slots will be in neptunes bounty. Just be careful what you spend you plasmid on, as you only get so much (don't bother with health or eve upgrades, as your basically immortal)

Yup. Watch out for how many plasmids you buy though. If you want the achievement for getting all the tonics, you have to buy those first or you may run out of ADAM.

I have another question regarding Cohen. Will the grated basement on Fort Frolic open later in the game if you let Cohen live?

I've avoided killing him but the basement grate is still closed, I tried the switch behind the counter but it's still locked.

I'm guessing it'll open after you meet him at a later level but I don't want to have to relaod an old save to get this right.

Thanks in advance.

Brighton X

Q: Can you return to levels later in the game to find things I missed?
A: Yes, you can use the sub anytime to return to another level. After you do the Escort Little Sister quest as a Bid Daddy, make sure you save before you ride the elevator to fight Atlas, otherwise you will not be able to go back and finish anything.

You called him a Bid Daddy again.

Q: In the Medical Center, how do you open the locked office next to the guy hanging out the window?
A: Once you get telekinesis, return here and use it through the broken window. It will grab the key off the wall.

I would add to make sure you hold LB until you press A. If you click it you throw it even farter into the room & you can't get in the room anymore. This happened to my Dad this morning.

You can buy them at Gatherer's Garden Stations throughout a level. Look on your map and you will see a picture of Ryan's head. Go to that and you can purchase more slots using Adam.

I also have a question

What is the keycode to the door in the surgery center on the Medical Level. There is no Hack keypad option. I really don't want to go through all of my tapes to try and find the code. I am almost finished with the game and i'm just perusing some of the old levels to see if i got everything and I can't get in this door.

You have to hack the machine and also use the two tonics that help inventing. Once you do all that, it should be easy to get the achievement if you have full inventory. That is how I did it. If you run out of items, go back to Arcadia and the Farmers Market, in the room with the bees, if you activate the smoker, it will spawn splicers that you can kill for items. Also, use security bullseye plasmid against big daddies for easy kills for rare items.

Use the grenade launcher and all of its ammo (prox mines too, just directly hit him) and then finish with the electric gel. You can also use security bullseye, decoy, and engrage (on the splicers) to help you out. I takes less than 5 minutes. If you connect with 99% of your shots you shouldn't need other weapons. If you do run out, use electric and explosive buck and the crossbow.

You should just DL the DLC and try it out, they are supposed to only cost 1 Adam each. IDk why you are even going for the Tonic Collector when you are harvesting all the Little Sisters. Are you trying to make the game harder? The game is actually harder if you harvest rather than save because you don't get as much cool ammo in the beginning and you also don't get cool plasmids and tonics later in the game.

I'm trying to go through on hard without using any vita chambers and i'm at one part where this one big daddy is just kicking my ass and i can't beat him. I know after you beat the game you can go back through and find thigns you missed and stuff but does this also apply towards saving little sisters? or do i need to save them as i progress through the game?

Question about the research achievements: I just got done fully researching the Spider Splicers and my achievement did not unlock for it.

I tried to take more pictures of the, but it says that I cannot because it is already fully researched. So I ask, is there something that I am missing, or do I need to unlock another research one and have both unlock or what?

Thanks and sorry if this was covered already.

If you click here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/achievements.php?gameID=271), you can find a complete list of all BioShock achievements, including the "secret" ones. ;)

There is a button that looks like a globe with a chain. In the quick reply, it is next to the font color button. Why would he win MotM?

Highlight the word you want to make a link, click on that button, paste the address you want to link in the box that pops up.

One quick question, what is the latest point at which you can return to the majority of stages to collect the tapes? I'm currently in the area where you collect the Big Daddy items from the Labs, am I too late to return?

Shinobi273
01-30-2008, 07:26 PM
You can go back to anywhere except Welcome to Rapture, and Hephestus Control Room. You are never too late to return, I suggest that you complete the Big Daddy suit, then go back so splicers don't attack you.

Oh thanks... the reason i said that its cause he made submissions in all the fucking month so it would make a lot of sense if he won that reward since nineteendelta or whatever won it for that reason not for posts, since the award is given monthly he should win it in my opinion or maybe another guy has made also lots of stuff and he will win it but hey he has been in the site since december and 1 month later he sends all that stuff sooner or later he is going to get the award if he continues that way.

What i mean is that if you look to all the "achievement unlocked" in the front page (about the things that they add or update) you are going to find his profile name in every single one of this month, so if i remember correctly nineteendelta won it for that reason even though he had few posts, so what im saying is that using the same criteria, he deserves to win it, especially if we consider this is a reward for the "member of the month" not the "month award to X dedicated guy in the past months".
He was the only guy in Jan that made submissions every time the updates were anounced, just my thoughts.
Im sorry for the punctuation:(.

Yes i think he deserves it and besides i just checked and he has been in the site longer than i thought, he just changed his profile.
I looked that in this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=50046)... i learned how to use that thanks shinobi.

Cameras do not respawn and cannot be unhacked. If you somehow run out of cameras before finishing the research, you need to start a new game.

Yes ... I am quoting myself ... to anyone want to know the answer to my question, the best thing to do is to go into another section and try to snap a picture of that creature. It was either the next section or it was a new portion of the story, but either way I ended up getting the achievement by filling up the bar again. 5 times on the Spider Splicer but I finally got it.

I have a question.

I wanted to start a new game on hard to get the 'seriously good' and the 'brass balls' (and the 'tonic colector') achievements. I selected the options in the menu but there isn't something to turn of the Vita Chambres. Can you only turn it on/off at the cutscene at the beginning of the game or something?

This is what I got in the options menu:
- Master Volume
- Sound Effects Volume
- Speech Volume
- Difficulty
- Adaptive Training
- Horizontal FOV
- Subtitles
- Auto-Aim
- Invert Y-Axis
- Controller Sensitivity
- Quest Arrow
- Unlock Framerate

I'm having a small problem with Cohen's room. I didn't kill him after his masterpiece. I left him totally alone and went on with the level. I didn't enter his house before I met him though (I don't know if this matters). His 2 dancing buddies are still alive there but when I enter his house I don't get anything letting me know he's there. I tried killing them once and he didn't come down either. Am I screwed and just have to start over? (I'm a Big Daddy btw)

Yes it is still available... i think i read some posts about that diary that for some people was located on Neptune's Bounty and others where the guide says... im not sure though.
But the diary is avialable, there are few diaries that you cant go back for, first encounter isnt one of them.

Don’t be to worried in the first play thru on normal I just saved every little sister and avoided the health and eve plasmids then on the second play I harvested like a mo fo (hard with no vita) I just saved tons and only really bought the health and eve upgrades used my guns more then plasmids…in fact I had all first level plasmids going up against franky and took him out first try……my guns did the talking for me

I just beat Andrew Ryan and subsequently the game. I did not finish researching like the flying bots or security cameras as well as getting the final uprgrades on my guns.

Can I go back to levels once I have beaten the game or do I need to just go into an older save file and then find everything that way?

Thanks!
