All Plasmids - 20
Find or purchase all 11 basic Plasmid types.

It's fairly hard to miss a Plasmid bottle because they are brightly coloured. You will either be given them as a gift or have to buy them from a Gatherer's Garden. You only need to own one level for each Plasmid, buying all three levels of a single Plasmid will not count for this achievement.

These are the earliest known locations to find each Plasmid. You can buy or find them in later levels also.
  • Cyclone Trap (Bought, Pauper's Drop)
  • Decoy (Bought, Pauper's Drop)
  • Electro Bolt (Gift, Adonis Luxury Resort)
  • Hypnotize (Gift, Pauper's Drop)
  • Incinerate! (Bought, Ryan Amusements)
  • Insect Swarm (Bought, Siren Alley)
  • Scout (Bought, Siren Alley)
  • Security Command (Gift, Siren Alley)
  • Summon Eleanor (Gift, Persephone)
  • Telekinesis (Gift, Atlantic Express Depot)
  • Winter Blast (Bought, Pauper's Drop)
Trap Master - 15
Kill 30 enemies using only Traps.

This may sound quite time consuming but can be done with an alternative ammo for the rivet gun. Early on you will will find Trap Rivets for your gun. Press with the Rivet Gun selected to equip this ammo type, once selected you can either fire them directly at your enemies or set traps.

If you want to take the more creative approach you can mix your Plasmids to form traps. Mixing Cyclone with Incinerate/Elctro Bolt also works rather effectively.

Master Protector - 15
Get through a Gather with no damage and no one getting to the Little Sister.

This maybe be a little difficult until you find the right spot. While making your way through Ryan Amusements and enter "Journey to the Surface", you will have to harvest ADAM from a body in a open room. You can hack the turret and place Rivet Traps on the floor and around the doorways. Once you have everything setup, place the sister down to collect ADAM. You can now back up into the corner and pick off splicers as they flood the room.

As long as you watch out for any splicers with guns and let the turret do all the work you should earn this without any issues.

Big Spender - 15
Spend 2000 dollars at Vending Machines.

This should come with natural progression in the game, loot anything and everything to find useful items. Half of what you loot will be money, once you find a vending machine either buy ammo, health or anything else you need. Just keep repeating this process until you have spent over 2000 dollars on vending machine items.

Dealt with Every Little Sister - 50
Either Harvest or Save every Little Sister in the game.

You will encounter the Little Sisters who will help you through the game, if you let them. Decide which route you want to take and stick to it. Saving every Little Sister will be more rewarding but Harvesting will gain you more ADAM.

If you decide to Harvest the sisters you will miss out on the "Savior" and "Master Gatherer" achievements. You will be given three options with the Little Sisters you encounter, Adopt, Harvest and Save. Adopting will allow you to harvest bodies for ADAM which will go towards "Master Gatherer". Once you are finished gathering with your current Little Sister, take her to a vent and save her. You can gather two bodies with one Little Sister.You won't be rewarded so well in the beginning, but using a Little Sister effectively will reward you in the long run.

You can keep track of how many Little Sisters you need to save by pressing , and viewing the stats at the bottom of the pause menu.
  • 0 - Adonis Luxury Resort
  • 0 - Atlantic Express Depot
  • 1 - Ryan Amusements
  • 2 - Pauper's Drop
  • 3 - Siren Alley
  • 3 - Dionysus Park
  • 3 - Fontaine Futuristics
  • 0 - Persephone
  • 0 - Inner Persephone
Note: Do not leave an area and progreed to the next without gathering and dealing with the sisters. If you do so you won't be able to return. Gathering does not count as dealing with each sister. You must either Save or Harvest all the sisters for this achievement.

Against All Odds - 30
Finish the game on the hardest difficulty level.

Finishing the game on the hardest difficulty may be easier for some than others. If you are a fairly experienced with First Person Shooting games you shouldn't have too many issues, but here are a few tips:
  • Take cover
  • Use first aid sooner rather than later
  • Don't be brave, run away if you are overwhelmed
  • Use Vita Chambers (unless you are going for "Big Brass Balls")
Big Brass Balls - 25
Finish the game without using Vita-Chambers.

If you have played the first Bioshock you may have attempted this achievement. Unlike the first you can complete the game on any difficulty but you must not use the Vita-Chambers. Start on easy or normal and make your way through the game.

Take your time and avoid as much unnecessary conflict as possible. If you are overwhelmed either take cover or run away and use your health kits when needed.

Note: Once you start the game you can turn the Vita-Chambers off through the option menu. Doing this will stop you from making a mistake and using the chambers. Make sure you save on a regular basis.

Rapture Historian - 40
Find 100 audio diaries.

You will find audio diaries through each section of Rapture. They provide a lot of back story and depth to characters that you might run into while exploring. Make sure to check every room you enter for these diaries.

There are 128 audio diaries throughout Rapture so missing a few isn't an issue, but don't just ignore them. You won't be able to come back and collect them once you move onto the next level.

Unnatural Selection - 10
Score your first kill in a non-private match.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

You should be able to score at least one kill in any match you take part in. If you are having difficulty taking down other players use your Plasmids while shooting.

Welcome to Rapture - 10
Complete your first non-private match.

Load up any ranked game and play through to the end. Once the game is over and you have completed the full match the achievement will unlock. If your host quits or you are disconnected you won't be rewarded for completing the level.

Disgusting Frankenstein - 10
Become a Big Daddy for the first time in a non-private match.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

While running around the areas of Rapture you will see an announcement at the bottom of the screen. "A Big Daddy suit has spawned near your location", make your way to the suit if you know where it is and press to wear it.

Normally this turns into a mad scramble between players to get the suit. If you do see the suit laying on the ground grab it before someone else does.

You can use any game mode other than Capture the Sister as players will spawn as the Big Daddy.

"Mr. Bubbles-- No!" - 20
Take down your first Big Daddy in a non-private match.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

At some point in the game a Big Daddy suit will spawn randomly in the level. Someone will pick up the suit and go on a kill rampage. The most effective way to take down someone wearing the suit is to use Incinerate! or Winter Blast and the shotgun or machine gun.

You don't need to waste all of the players health but you do need to be the player to perform the final blow. If someone else fires the final shot you won't be rewarded.

Mother Goose - 20
Save your first Little Sister in a non-private match.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

While playing Capture the Sister, you will need to capture the sister while playing on the offense and return her to the vent. This will take some patience but using the Aero Dash Plasmid will give you an advantage. You will earn this Plasmid at rank 4.
