You can use this to get kills on enemies in upcoming battles or during the fight with the patriot do this with whichever you are more comfortable. Two of the easiest spots to get this are chapter 11 Heroes Gift shop you will fight the first patriot, and in chapter 31/32 Memorial Gardens when you fight the first siren there is a tear for a crank gun on the elevated section of the back wall from the entrance.
Well Rounded 10
Used all 8 Vigors against enemies.
The 8 vigors are Bucking Bronco, Charge, Devil's Kiss, Murder of Crows, Possession, Return to Sender, Shock Jockey, and Undertow. Vigors can be upgraded at the "veni vidi vigor" machines to make them more powerful thus making it easier to kill or afflict enemies.
Vigorous Opposition 50
Killed 75 enemies either with a Vigor or while the enemy is under the effects of a Vigor.
You will add to this number in the course of getting trap kills, the 8 combinations, knocking enemies off columbia with undertow, and getting your falling kills. Zap and shoot is an easy method as from the first bioshock. Use Shock Jockey to zap them and then shoot them in the head for an easy kill.
Murder of Crows, Bucking Bronco, and Shock Jockey should help greatly at netting you this achievement with combination gunfire kills.
More for Your Money 25
Lured 3 enemies into a single Vigor trap 5 times.
To set a trap you must hold down
until a trap icon appears, place it where you want it, then let go of
Devil's kiss and Murder of Crows make for great traps. Put one down at a corner then try to move ahead into a large enemy area after you've gathered enough attention, the more the better of course, retreat to your defensive position and wait for the trap to hit it's targets. Using undertow to push or pull them in can also GREATLY help in getting this achievement. Also using Murder of Crows trap with the gear hat "Storm" should allow for another easy method. Another great checkpoint spot for this is later in the game when you fight a siren in chapter 31/32, Memorial Gardens, throw down murder of crows and watch the fun.
Combination Shock 50
Performed all 8 of the Vigor combinations.
The 8 combos are:
- Possession and Shock Jockey

- Bucking Bronco and Devil's Kiss
- Bucking Bronco and Charge
- Undertow and Shock Jockey

Mind Over Matter 10
Killed 20 enemies using Possessed machines.
Possession is the first vigor you get and initially it ONLY works on machines, use this to your advantage to get the kills early. You can use Possession to control the Mosquitoes to get this more quickly. They are the floating machine guns held aloft by baloons.
Tear 'em a New One 25
Opened 30 Tears.
Elizabeth is in charge of opening the tears and you have a few options when doing so, it can be used to bring combatants in to aid you (which goes towards Strange Bedfellows
), tear in cover, drop an ammo supply, or recover health to name a few.
Strange Bedfellows 10
Killed 20 enemies using allies brought in through a Tear.
You can do this by summoning in allies during combat to aid you. It may help to shoot enemies lightly before you use a summon tear so that the allies have easy targets to kill. allies include Mosquitoes, patriots, and automatons.
On the Fly 10
Killed 30 enemies while riding a Sky-Line.
You will have many opportunities to get this while riding around with the skyhook whether it be for the headshot achievement or just kills outright this should unlock naturally in play.
Bolt From the Blue 25
Killed 5 enemies with a headshot while riding a Sky-Line.
While riding a line hold down/back on the

Hazard Pay 25
Killed 10 enemies by utilizing environmental hazards.
Around Columbia you will see firework barrels, water puddles, and oil slicks. As in the first bioshock you can, in this case, use vigors to electrocute torch or explode enemies nearby or on these hazards do so 10 times and this achievement will unlock.
Bon Voyage 25
Killed 20 enemies by knocking them off Columbia.
Use the undertow vigor by pressing
when an enemy is somewhat near or right next to an edge. Undertow does little to no damage so you can rinse and repeat...until he is thrown off the edge. You can also use bucking bronco with undertow to make this easier but salt costly. Great places for these are at the End of chapter 28, Factory, where you help Liz into a vent, and 38, Hangar Deck,whilst fighting in an airship.
