I can confirm that the difficulty switch does work. As soon as you drain the last plasmid hit start, change difficulty to hard then push start again.

Still works. Just got both achievements after playing the whole campaign on easy and changing to hard to fight Fontaine. No deaths.

Why in the world do devs let glitches like this exist? Hard difficulties bring out the true potential in a game, i don't see how people have fun by getting one-shot kills and hardly ever dying through the whole game. Its like getting the achievement is more fun to some of you than actually playing the game for what it's worth.

What a joke. Started on hard, brought it down to easy during Neptune's thingy, then did what was mentioned above and no achievement. Don't have the DLC though, i'll try later if that matters.

Wish I would have read this before completing the whole game on hard again. It doesn't matter though I love the game. Though I am still stuck on the boss battle on hard. Fontaine pisses me off. lol

Ok did everything with the DLC, the cache, whatever, nothing. I hate these glitchy achievements.


Ok well for those wondering, the best thing would be to redo a run in easy, having vita chambers turned off (on on, haha), and go through the game as quickly as possible. It took me 4h15 from "new game" to "achievement unlocked", I rushed and was low on ammo at some time but all in all, as long as you have 80 electric gel for the boss, it's gonna be easy.

I already started playing this game on hard. Can I switch to easy in the middle of my playthrough or do I need to choose easy from the begining to make this work?

Awesome! I was afraid I was going to have to restart.
I'm just going to change the difficulty before fighting him rather than when I'm just about to kill him.

I did miss this one audio diary in Rapture Central Control, but good thing I have another save file with it. Looks like I don't need to restart after all.

Okay so deleted my last post and reposted this as I wanted people to see it, also didn't want to double post.

2: Start the game on easy, and turn the Vita chambers off. If you use one, it will ruin that playthrough for getting Brass Balls. Obviously, get to the very end of the game.
3: Save before the final boss battle. Then, beat him like normal up to the final Adam taking. When you walk up to him and get the option to "Press A", this is where the trick comes in.

-Immediatly after pressing A, press start.
-Go to the options, and head down to the difficulty.
-Press left to change it to Hard, then press start to get out of the menu, not B.
-Watch the movie, and as it starts the non-ingame movie you should get the achievements.

I just did this about 10mins ago, you can look at my account to see, so it still works.
This method here worked perfectly for me, I tried for an hour doing other peoples methods but none of them worked. I tried this (downloaded the DLC as I didn't have it, it's the FREE tonics ones) and it worked perfectly the first time.

If you want to try this method to get the two achievements try this one and follow the steps as listed, it was even correct at the timing in which the achievements popped!

When I did this achievement (a while back) using this glitch I am positive on my easy playthrough I used a vita-chamber. This happen to anyone else?

Shocking never knew about this, right think its time to grab the German copy. Should be a breeze as I know this game like the back of my hand.

Not sure if anyone has really posted it recently but yes it still works. What I remember doing was beating Atlas the first time on easy and reloading my save and changing the difficulty to "Hard". I then began fighting Atlas beginning to end in Hard. It was actually easy for some reason. Just make sure you can turn your Vita-Chambers on/off or it won't work for some odd reason.
Note: Does not work with Bioshock 2 or Bioshock Infinite.

As of 12/28/13 the glitch still works. I switched to hard when the last adam was halfway drained.

The whole point of these posts is in case of patches, with two more games in the series out it's safe to say they haven't put out any new patches.
