Big daddies are vulnerable to armor-piercing rounds, so if you have any, use them. I usually either blast them away with a ton of grenades, use incinerating bolts from the crossbow (these worked pretty well for me), or take them down strategically by using trap bolts (let him get down a long hallway or something, then set up a few trap bolts down the hallway, shoot at him, and let him come flying thru all of them =]...that works better for bouncers since they lunge tho).

On hard, it takes 94 units of electric gel from your chem sprayer (with consumption upgrade) to kill a big daddy. Its pretty sweet because once you hit them with the first button they cant move so you just hold the trigger till they are dead. It takes a ton of crossbow shots to kill them.(on hard)

another easy way:

wait for them to stand around and shoot some proximities on the floor... sort of like a trail of bread crumbs leading to you, then fire off a round at him. He will go over the mines as he rushes you, it takes about 4 proximities with the upgrade. If hes still alive, shock/AP rounds will take him out.

I just shot them with 4-5 Electric buck shot and they died. You can also use armor piercing rounds or exploding buck.

what i found works well

many times a few different methods i typically use are:

possess the big daddy to believe that you're a little sister, then run out of the room, go do a few things, then come back to see another one spawned.
wait for him to go collect the little sister out of the cubby hole, then shoot him once, this will initiate the battle of the big daddys, which is also interesting to watch.

but, if u dont have the time / want to do that, another method i like to use are the proximity mines.
lay down a straight path of 3 or four of them about 8 feet apart, the beauty is, is that he never attacks you unless you attempt to hurt the little sister or attack him.

at which case you have the big daddy lined up on the far side of a few proxy mines, pull out your machine gun, and unload. he'll come runnin at you like abat outta hell, blowing up all the mines, and should be pretty much dead by the time he reaches you.

It's really easy to do that in Fort Frolic. Just possess the Big Daddy in the main room and go to Poseidon's Hall to see one come down the stairs

But there's other enemies there

But the easiest way to do it is at the second Bathysphere in Fort Frolic. Possess one Big Daddy and lead him all the way to the stairs in front of the bathysphere. Shoot him once and stand at the bottom of the stairs. Wait till he charges then he should slide into the bathysphere. Hide behind the lever and if he's in far enough, he'll just stand there hitting the ground. Peek out a bit and hit him with the crowbar (as long as you're next to the lever he won't hit you unless you get into range of him) and it goes by faster when you have the 3 crowbar upgrades

its just as easy to shoot the big daddies with the trap bolts instead of setting them up as a trap, it does the same amount of damage. 4-5 shots can bring one down quickly.

When I fought my first big daddy I died a few times before I killed him. I went in with almost the full health pack amount. I used some electro bolt plasmid, armor piercing bullets from the pistol, and then finished him off with a machine gun. See ya Mr. Bubbles

Easiest I've found is to upgrade the grenade launcher and then it only takes 3 hits with a proximity mine.

Easiest way in the medical pavilion. Is to hit them and run to the dental area Vita Chamber, There you can squeeze between the Vita Chamber and they cant touch you (its not a glitch) and unload. I killed 4 first time playing this way.

After that wait for them to go down stairs, and be above them,Hit them ith Grenade launcher, shotgun..wait till they get on you level,and jump down, and repeat.

I also Liked using Target Bullseye. The BD's get damaged and you can move in to Reasearch Photos in action,Hack, and just simply run bye

I always try to us TK to throw something explosive at him. Barrel, propane tanks, whatever. Does a bit of damage, always helpful.

Best weapon to take down a BD, at least IMO, is the chemical gun w/ electric gel. You just hit the guy with the juice and he can't even move or fight back. Just pour it on him and he'll be dead real quick. You definitely need the consumption rate upgrade for the gun though, or you'll run out of gel before he dies.

To compensate for the high consumption rate, open up your attack with the grenades or proximity mines. Throw a couple of mines in his path and as he comes toward you, BOOM then hit him with the electric-gel. Fight's over before it even starts.

Get another Big Daddy to fight a Big Daddy.

I simply used "Hypnotize Big Daddy" plasmid on a Big Daddy, lead him to another Big Daddy that was protecting a Little Sister, and shot the one protecting the Little Sister to "mark" him as the target.

Then I just sit back and watch the fireworks.

or....

You can also lay a long row of trap darts (at eye level that way you can still crawl underneath them) and simply lure a Big Daddy to it. Place them along a long, narrow path or hallway. These trap darts are super deadly to a Big Daddy, especially if he is already wounded.

What are you guys, on easy?

I'm going for the brass balls acheivement so I have to beat them on hard without dying...

I'm at Neptunes Bounty before the chemical thrower or the grenade launcher and just can't seem to kill this guy. I found a crawlspace I can wedge into and try with the electric buck, but it's still about impossible.

Once I get electric gel, I'll be fine, but for now, I need better tips than to use my shotgun.

I'll look around for a gas canister to telekenis at him, but I have my doubts.

Proximity Mines on gas cylinders + Telekinesis are your best bet as they kill anything in one go.

Big Daddie issues

I killed the first one after trying many, many times but the second one I've found was a shooting one, not a drill one and I can not do it.

I've tried luring him to where I have a rocket turret and shocked him while he's there and he simply shoots the turret, destroying it then kills me.
So... I've got no idea how to beat them either.

First Big Daddy

On my "Brass Balls" runthrough, I took out the first Big Daddy by circling around the "bar" area where you encounter him. In the middle of that area there's a column/pillar of sorts with a bar on one side of it. I used electric buck and basically shot/stunned him while circling that (to use it as cover).

I like to make bombs by attaching proximity mines to fuel tanks and canisters and then throw it at them. Or you could set up traps with the trap bolts / mines and just lure them in Its always fun to lure a Big Daddy to his death

Just had the first one, doesn't give a chance!!

The only way I managed it was the tip by Vorr, to squeeze between the Vita Chamber.

EDIT: Later on gets easier, I just use the Grenade Launcher.

Take down Big Daddy by another Big Daddy by using Hypnotize Big Daddy plasmid. You can obtain it early in the game if you save each little sister

I took down first Big Daddy by throwing at him gas containers i found in this level. Before battle i collected them in one place. It enough with 4 containers to kill Big Daddy on hard difficulty.

killing big daddy's in a amusing and quick way

so you need to kill the big daddy's
look always use the heavy stuff or weapons that you have so that they die very quickly.
then use elemental plasmids that confuse or stun big daddy like insects, ice and electric. especially electric, because that stuns big daddy's good and also damages them more then other plasmids.
after that or using simultainously use traps of any kind to make daddy's day a bit more like a living hell.

So now in a real quick way, first lay traps where the big daddy's is going to walk to damage him and slow him down. secondly use plasmids to confuse or slow the daddy and damage him even further. and finaly use your weapons wisely like use your grenadelauncher first and then continue killing him with a machinegun and finish him with a shotgun to the head.

for more fun spice things up like use fire than insects than telekinse to throw exposives at him and hitting him with a wrench and slaughtering him with a crossbow.

TOP TIP use heavy arrows with crossbow ( oohh i love that weapon and the one in Bioshock 2 ) to make him suffer a lot and put a nice arrow in his eyesocket, arms, legs, belly, back, foot, hand, mouth, neck and ass. that will make him turn in a hedgehog
