COPYRIGHT/RIGHTS OF USE:
This guide may not be used without written permission by either the author or website admins. This guide has been put together for x360a and should not be used without permission.

Introduction:
Bioshock 2 takes you back into the underwater world of Rapture, but from a different point of view. This time around you will be playing as a Big Daddy, but not just any. You will be playing through the eyes of a Delta Series Big Daddy, the first and only Big Daddy of its kind.

The general garden variety Splicers have now transformed and became stronger over the 10 years since the first Bioshock. You may be stronger but the world of Rapture has changed so much over the past 10 years.

Buggy Achievements/Freezing:
Several achievements have been reported to not unlock when the requirements are met. You can either try to complete the requirements again or try on another playthrough.

If your multiplayer achievements are also acting up keep re-attempting them until they unlock.

Another issue you may encounter involves the game freezing. There currently isn't a patch for these issues so make sure you have backup saves. Most freezing issues are related to multiplayer. A patch should be released shortly.

Breakdown:
Before you start, carefully decide how you want to play though the game. There are quite a few achievements, which can be very easy to miss. It is possible to earn all the story achievements on one go but only if you know what to do.

Remember there is no way to backtrack and collect things you have missed. Once you leave a level and move onto the next you can't return.

Playthrough 1: (Easy/Normal)
The bulk of your achievements will be earned on your first playthrough of the game. Before you start read through the missable achievements above. With a little planning you should be able to earn most of your achievements on the first playthrough. Once you start the game turn off the Vita Chambers and aim to save all the Little Sisters.

Turning off your Vita Chambers isn't a requirement but it will stop you from using them by mistake.

+ Complete the game without dying (turn off Vita Chambers, save often)
+ Kill the Big Sister without dying
+ Kill three Big Daddies without dying
+ Save all the Little Sisters (and spare the outsiders)
+ Gather 600 ADAM with the Little Sisters
+ Find all 100 Audio Diaries
+ Find all upgrade stations (Apply all upgrades to your weapons)
+ Hack all machines (and 30 from a distance)
+ Kill 50 enemies with hacked Security (Bots & Turrets)
+ Upgrade at least one of your Plasmids fully

Some achievements require further explanation so read the guide for each achievement.

Playthrough 2: (Hard)
You may have decided to skip playing through the game on Easy or Normal and started on Hard. It is possible to run through the game on hard but it depends on how big of a challenge you desire. If this is your first and only playthrough review the information listed under playthrough 1.

If this is your second playthrough, you should only have to earn achievements you missed while on your first run.

Here are a few tips for playing on Hard:

+ Enable Vita Chambers
+ Collect weapon upgrades and use them on primary weapons
+ Hack security bots
+ Harvest Little Sisters for ADAM and less hassle.
+ Upgrade plasmids you use on a regular basis.

If you don't use certain weapons or Plasmids concentrate on them after you have upgraded your more commonly used items. You don't want to waste ADAM on skills you don't find as useful as others.

Little Sisters: ADAM Gathering
This time around ADAM plays a slightly different part in your character. You can interact with the Little Sisters and use them to gather ADAM for you. This is quite a lengthy process but provides its rewards. You can harvest from two bodies with one sister, but you need to be careful and make sure to protect the Little Sister as she collects for you.

If you want to make the most of the games achievements then you will need to gather ADAM with them and make sure you do not harvest them.

Research:
This process is rather straightforward but it's easy to miss out on researching enemies if you forget to use the camera. There are four levels of research to complete. Once you start to encounter new enemies it's best to research them fully as soon as you can. The stronger enemies are, the harder they will be to research. Start recording before you attack so you can take advantage of the extra research points. Also upgrading your research tonics is a must. Using multiple attacks and weapons will earn you more points.

If you can work out the right combination for your attacks while researching, you should be able to max out the research track with little to no effort.

Collectibles: Audio Diaries & Power to the People Stations
Much like the previous Bioshock most of the story is told through the audio diaries. You will need to collect 100 of them this time around but there are 128 in total. You may want to ignore these on alternative playthroughs but collecting them your first time around will save you the hassle of finding them all again.

Audio Diary/Power to the People Upgrade Station Guide


There are also upgrade stations located around the various levels of Rapture. Most are hidden from plain sight so be sure to check every room.

Multiplayer:
You will need to spend a fair amount of time leveling up and earning new skills within the multiplayer. There are also several achievements linked to various tasks, most are fairly straightforward but others may take time to earn.

Earning your 40th level will depend on your skill range and how well you cope against other players. You will need to earn 97000 ADAM before you hit this goal, so be prepared to put in the man hours. Most if not all the achievements can be earned within your first few games if you know what you want to achieve.

Conclusion:
The achievements aren't really too complicated but more time consuming than anything. With careful planning you can earn 1000 with minimal effort and enjoyment.

Master Hacker - 20

The hack tool can be quite useful if you need to hack a turret or security camera without being detected. You can also use it to hack and lower prices on vending machines. You will find the hack tool early on so start hacking when you're able to.

Once you start hacking a meter will pop up on the screen with a needle which bobs back and forth, press on the green or blue areas to progress in the hacking. If you hit the blue lines you will be rewarded, green lines will progress and blank spaces will shock you.

There are eight machines which need to be hacked:
  • Circus of Value
  • Door Locks
  • El Ammo Bandito
  • First Aid stations
  • Safes
  • Security Bots
  • Security Cameras
  • Security Turrets

Once you acquire the camera you will be able to research your enemies. Doing this will earn extra skills to use against your enemies. There are four research levels for each enemy. Use multiple weapons and Plasmids together so your score meter goes up. If you keep using the same combination to kill the same type of enemy your score will not be as great.

Big Daddy/Sister
  • Big Daddy - Alpha Series
  • Big Daddies - Bouncer - Rosie - Rumbler
  • Big Sister
Splicer
  • Brute Splicer
  • Houdini Splicer
  • Leadhead Splicer
  • Spider Splicers
  • Thuggish Splicer*
Security
  • Security Bots - Security Cameras - Turrets
*Once you find the camera start researching straight away. Thuggish Splicers don't appear in the later levels so make sure you research them before you leave Pauper's Drop.

Researchers Handbook

This guide will provide all the locations and all the basic information you need to know about researching.

Note: You can keep track of your research by pressing and viewing the research tab. Doing this will help you keep track of what research you have done, and what research you need to do.

Grand Daddy - 25
Defeat 3 Big Daddies without dying during the fight.

If you're starting out on easy this shouldn't be an issue. You need to fight three Big Daddies without dying. You can use Security Bots, Turrets or hypnotize Splicers to help you take down a Big Daddy. Once you have taken down one Big Daddy save your game and move onto the next. If you are playing with the Vita Chambers off you shouldn't have to worry about re-spawning by mistake.

If you are attempting this on hard you may have a tough time taking down a single Big Daddy. Make sure you have plenty of Health and EVE, using Winter Blast with the Drill seems to be the most effective way to kill a Big Daddy. Continuously freeze him while you attack.

Master Gatherer - 30
Gather 600 ADAM with Little Sisters.

Once you adopt a Little Sister you can set her down next to glowing bodies to collect ADAM. A Little Sister can gather 40 ADAM from each body or 60 ADAM using the "Proud Parent" tonic.

Basic Gathering
As you start out you will need to harvest two bodies with each sister until you earn the "Proud Parent" Tonic.

8 Sisters with 2 bodies = 80 ADAM, 80x8=640

Proud Parent Tonic
You will be rewarded with this tonic after saving four Little Sisters. This will allow you to collect 60 ADAM per body rather than the previous 40 ADAM. If you harvest your sisters after gathering you may miss out on this tonic.

5 Sisters with 2 bodies = 120 ADAM, 120 x5 = 600

Depending on if you use the tonic or not you will earn this achievement either before or around Dionysus Park.

You can either use your map to find the ADAM or you can hold down the for a second and a trail will appear. This will lead to you the bodies that can be harvested.

Note: Saving/Harvesting a Little Sister does not count as a gather. Make sure you gather with each sister twice to avoid missing out on this achievement.

Fully Upgraded a Plasmid - 10
Fully upgrade one of your Plasmids to the level 3 version at a Gatherer's Garden.

Each Plasmid has three levels which can be bought form a Gatherer's Garden or found. You can't backtrack so make sure that you collect as many Plasmids as possible. Buy any of these level three upgrades and the achievement will unlock.

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.

Audio Diary/Power to the People Upgrade Station Guide

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.

Two-Bit Heroics - 10
Complete your first trial in a non-private match.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

Complete one of the sub objectives required to earn extra ADAM. Some of these tasks are fairly straightforward, where as others will require you to complete harder tasks.

You can view your trials from the gaming lobby. Completing a trial will reward you with extra ADAM to use towards your leveling.

Parasite - 10
Achieve Rank 10.

See "Choose the Impossible"

Little Moth - 20
Achieve Rank 20.

See "Choose the Impossible"

Skin Job - 20
Achieve Rank 30.

See "Choose the Impossible"

Choose the Impossible - 50
Achieve Rank 40.

While playing online you will earn ADAM, which will help you level up through the various ranks. This may take a while but it depends on how good you are at the various game modes. If you are fairly skilled you will rank up faster than other players. Play through the game modes which you feel most comfortable with.

Level 01 - ADAM Required: 0
Reward: 75 ADAM

Level 10 - ADAM Required: 9000
Reward: 150 ADAM

Level 20 - ADAM Required: 25500
Reward: 250 ADAM

Reward: 500 ADAM

Level 40 - ADAM Required: 97000
Reward: 1000 ADAM

You can see the full leveling stats and upgrade rewards here

You will earn ADAM for various tasks you complete. Make sure you hack, take photos, collect vials and complete trials. You should be able to average between 500 - 800 ADAM per match.
  • Kills: 10 (20 for Last Splicer Standing Mode)
  • Kill Streak: 50 (three kills in a row)
  • Assists: 5
  • Killing a Big Daddy: 100
  • Capturing a sister: 50 (Capture the Sister)

  • Becoming a Big Daddy: 50
  • Research: 10
  • Win a Game: 200
  • Lose a Game: 150
Note: Remember to capture a photo of the players you kill. This will earn a 15% damage boost against that player.

Proving Grounds - 20
Win your first non-private match.

Join any Ranked game-play you feel comfortable playing and either be the overall winner or on the winning team.

Note: This should come natrually but only seems to unlock for most people while playing team games.

Man About Town - 10
Play at least one non-private match on each multiplayer map.

This must be done in a Ranked Match.

The multiplayer levels are sections of Rapture taken from the first Bioschock game. Play at least one Ranked match on each of the follow levels and the achievement will unlock:
  • Arcadia
  • Farmer's Market
  • Fort Frolic
  • Hephaestus
  • Home for the Poor
  • Kashmir Restaurant
  • Medical Pavilion
  • Mercury Suites
  • Neptune's Bounty
  • Point Prometheus
The levels are randomly selected so it may take a little while for you to play on each level. If you are working towards "Choose the Impossible" you should have played on each level at least once by the time you get to level 40.

Note: If the host disconnects or you quit out, you won't be credited for completing the map.

9-Irony - 5
Paid your respects to the founder of Rapture.

While exploring Ryan Amusements you will find a statue of Andrew Ryan sat at a desk, he is located just inside "Journey to the Surface" on the left hand side. Look behind Andrew Ryan in the far corner to find a golf club, use telekinesis to pick up the club and then fire it at the statues head.

This is a rather odd achievement and very easy to miss if you don't know what to look for.


Distance Hacker - 5
Used the Hack Tool to hack an object at a distance.

This can't be missed as you will need to hack a door to progress early on.

See "Master Hacker"

Unbreakable - 20
Defended yourself against the Big Sister without dying.

The Big Sister will challenge you on the harder difficulties but she shouldn't cause you too many issues on easy. Keep moving and use your Plasmids with heavy or armor piercing rounds.

You will run into the Big Sister on a regular basis throughout the game, but you will only have a few chances to do this achievement.


Look at You, Hacker - 15
Killed 50 enemies using only hacked Security.

While hacking various machines for "Master Hacker" you will need to hack the security bots and turrets. Hack one of these robots and allow them to kill for you. A little patience is required as you will have to let the security bots kill your enemies.

Using security Plasmids or Security Cameras doesn't count towards the achievement. You need to directly hack a turret or bot for your kills to count.

If you are having issue finding bots and turrets allow the security cameras to raise the alarm so you can hack the bots.

Adopted a Little Sister - 5
Adopted a new Little Sister for the first time.

This is story related and can't be missed.

When you encounter the first little sister choose to adopt her by pressing . If you are working towards the other Little Sister achievements make sure not to Harvest any sisters.

See "Savior"

Savior - 25
Saved every Little Sister and spared Grace, Stanley and Gil.

Once you save all the Little Sisters and spare the lives of Grace, Stanley and Gil the achievement will unlock. If you have decided to harvest any Little Sisters or to kill any of the characters you will need to start over.

Grace Holloway - Stanley Poole - Gil Alexander
You will run into these characters as you make your way through the game. They will hinder you as you try to progress through the levels. Once you have completed whatever tasks you need to, you have the decision to kill them. Make sure you don't kill them either through requests or your own decision.

Counterattack - 5
Killed an enemy with its own projectile.

Using telekinesis grab a thrown projectile and throw it back at the enemy. You can either do this against a Splicer or any other enemy which throw projectiles such as grenades or rockets.

One of the easier ways to earn this achievement is to kill a Rumbler with it's own rockets. You can stand in front of them and keep using telekinesis over-and-over until you kill the Big Daddy. Splicers randomly throw grenades, but the Rumbler will always fire rockets at you if you are at a distance.

This can also be done with Thuggish Splicers and Rocket Turrets.

Fantastic looking guide but a little too late. I've just gone through the Amusements and missed 9-irony. I'll have my second playthrough for that one though!

That's not really the best way to explain the achievement. But i will be adding more into to that one soon.

I will be updating this over the next few days with various sorts but i will be adding in the info about the levels .

i not its not the best explaination but at least i tells you how much adam you need to get to level 40, if you added that with an some form of average per match i think it would be quite useful.

anyway looking like a really solid guide man !

Fizz, mad props man. I was planning on doing the achievement guide since last week, but school is relentless. I'm sure you'll go beyond the job

It definitely won't. It isn't close to being prestige in COD, rank 100 in Gears, or General in Halo wars or Halo3. Anyone that is half decent at FPS should be able to get it in less than a week. But of course there is always that one group that will try to prove that wrong.

Feel free to add my Counterattack and Master Protector videos if you want.

I will get a 9-irony video made as soon as I finish up my first playthrough.

Just remember guys this guide may seem complete but there are still bits of information that need expanding on .

I'm glad you all like it and i did my best to get this all together for the release date. So far i don't know why everyone is complaining, this game is a lot of fun.

Not flaming or anything but that doesn't seem to be fair. Aren't part of the X360a rules that you have to have played the game?
Did no one see this? I thought it was a bit true.

I snipped a few posts in here to keep it clean.

Quite simply, as long as the guide is GOOD and hasn't been stolen, it doesn't matter if the author has played the game or not. And if anyone thinks they can write a better guide, they're free to try. If it truly is better than this guide, it will be considered the best guide on the site. That's kind of the point of x360a.

So, please keep comments on the respectful side and let's try not to clutter the thread with pointless arguments, okay? They'll be removed anyway.

So yeah... nice guide, Fizzy! ^_^
