Got both of these with this glitch, very grateful for pointing it out. Now all I need to do is another playthrough for all those recordings and I'll have 100% completion on this one too ^.^

I can confirm that this still works. I just unlocked the achievement right now using the technique in the OP. Thanks!

It still works! Even online, so they never patched it! This is incredible, thank you for this!

I still for the life of me cannot get this to ping. I even tried turning the game to Hard on proving grounds, playing through and going to the save (which was then already on hard), and tried all methods above including a new game with vita chambers off and still no luck.

Can I get any confirmation of an Australian getting this cheevo this way? Maybe its my game itself..

EDIT: Scratch that, just re did it and got both achievements, finally I can put this game away.

I loaded one of my earlier saves just before the final boss and did it first try. I think those who couldn't get to work must have done something wrong. Literally a single wrong button press can screw up the whole thing.

Anyway, just wanted to confirm that it still works and did for me the other day. And I doubt they're patching it; honestly, if they haven't patched it by this point, then they never will.

I only tried this after I was half way through the game, when I had to update the game and the vitachamber disable option was deleted. I restarted on easy, did as the OP said, and got both achievements. It only took me less than 6 hours to play through the whole game taking only the direct path (not searching for extra ammo, or pick-ups)

I'm thinking about doing this but I need a little clarification. Can I not die and respawn in a vita-chamber, or not die at all. What I'm saying is am I allowed to reload a previous save when I die?

From what I understand, you just can't die and respawn from a vita-chamber. So if you have them disabled and you die, you just restart from your last save, no harm no foul. This should be how it works but I haven't done this myself so I don't know for sure. Someone should be able to confirm or deny this though.

Hey, I would just like to say this method STILL WORKS! I just used it on 4-7-12 so for anyone who is still needing this achievement this method still works.

Ditto. Followed it to the letter and it's refusing to pop.

Fuck this achievement, i'll stick with my 1000G I guess.

Can you die?

I completely understand that dying and respawning in a chmaber will screw it up? But I cant see why dying and reloading a save screws it up?

A lot of these guides state YOU CANNOT DIE, do they mean that you cant die and respawn in a chamber or that you just cant die?

Totally worked! Saves me having to do another playthrough. Only problem is, I got 1050g on it. I know I got all the Audio Diaries, even counted them before the Fontaine fight. Does using this exploit glitch that achievement?

I just did this exactly the way described in the video, and it worked the very first attempt!

1) Clear cache, delete the DLC.
2) Start game on Easy, run through it. You can do other achievements if you want, it doesn't matter.
3) Save before the end, download the DLC again just before entering the last elevator.
4) After the autosave up the top, load the game again
5) During the last boss fight, change the difficulty to hard before the cutscene starts (safest way to do it is just when you use the final needle)
6) Some time during the cutscene you will get all the achievements.
