Does anyone know the exact number of Alpha Series in the game? Also, is there a way to stop the research camera from stopping after you gain a research level (like a gene tonic or something)?

Fantastic guide, good thing I read this before I started Pauper's Drop.

For anybody who is struggling for researching harder to find enemies, like brutes and big daddies, there is a really easy way to get tons of research done really fast.. USE TURRETS AND BOTS! I used 4 mini-turrets, two bots and a normal turret and I got 1570 research points from a brute, about 1200 from a security bot, and around 900-1000 each for 4 spider splicers just by sitting there and freezing them while the bots attacked. Hope that helps!

Looks like I need to spend some quality time roaming Fontaine Futuristics. It looks like this is my last chance to finish up Big Daddies and Security. Luckily I have Houdini splicers done. I can spend some time around a hacked security camera and just video flying bots that come after splicers. I don't even have to fire a shot. :-D

I'm hoping there is at least one in the final few levels.

Edit: There are plenty in the final few levels but none in Fontaine Futuristics.
same here. it says that there is elite brutes but are they the same as normal ones?

Nice One

Good Advice. Pretty much the way I work... Always a good one is to Freeze and then pump the ice box full of explosive buckshot!

While I get the desperation for BS MP achievements, there are already several other threads dedicated to this. Good luck!

On the subject of research, I comitted the cardinal sin of leaving Pauper's Drop before finishing my Thuggish Slicer research, I know some people have said that they sometimes turn up in the next level but most people say otherwise, so therefore I am facing a second playthrough now just for the research achievement.

My question is this....and I know it is a long shot...I read that the Minerva's Den DLC has Thuggish Slicers in it, I don't suppose that the research would carry over would it? I only ask as I haven't seen any of the DLC yet and I intend to get it anyway but was just curious, as I said I know it is a long shot.

No, Minerva's Den is completely different from the main story. You can't do research in the DLC anyway.

Thanks for the research guide. I was afraid I missed some of the splicers, this proved me wrong.

Does researching any type of security count as one class or do the camera, turret and bot all count as different things?

If anyone was like me, and did not complete Thuggish Splicer research before leaving the Alley, you will have about 20 more to complete the research toward the end of the game, so no worries if you're short.

Sorry for the double post.

I'm pretty sure all security is encompassed into just one research track, that's how it seemed to work for me.

No. After you face those 2 Big Sisters together, that's it.

On my first play through, I didn't pay close enough attention and ended up being behind on research for them so didn't get the research achieve because there weren't any more.

Just a quick note/FYI for those coming after me - I just maxed out all my research and got the achievement last night. Granted, I was being pretty methodical about it, but I am currently at the point in the game where you're gathering the four plants to release Gil (Fontaine Futuristics).

Something Helpful

Today I was using you guide and it said that thuggish splicers don't show up in later levels. I am on Pauper's Drop right now, and I set down a little sister to get some ADAM. It was almost done, but then I died. I have vita-chambers on, so I just re-spawned really close to the body. I picked up my sister, put her down for ADAM again, died, and repeated. I was able to get the thuggish splicers done in no time because of the spawning system of the gathers. This helps in the fact that you can't get them later on. Awesome guide. It was very helpful. I look forward to seeing more guides from you.

I started to save my game in different files instead of rewritting over the last saved game.. I missing one little bar on brute, and after siren ally, I couldn't find anymore. So, I'm going to go back to my saved file from Siren Alley before I flooded the level, and see if I can come up with another guy.

I see the Thuggish Splicers don't appear in the later levels, but what can you do when you don't have level 4 when you're done at Pauper's Drop?

EDIT: You can easily get level 4 for both Thuggish and Leadhead Splicers in Pauper's Drop.
What's the difference between Rosies and the Alpha Series? Are there enough Alpha Series to research?
