Introduction:
Minerva's Den is the second peice of single player downloadable content for Bioshock 2 by 2K Marin. Minerva's Den sees you take on the role of subject Sigma an Alpha series just like subject Delta from the main story.

The downloadable content consists of three new areas to explore and new adversaries in the form of Big Daddies and Splicers, new weapons and plasmids are also included to help you overcome your new adversaries.

Breakdown:
Only one playthrough is required of Minerva's Den to achieve all 150, 4 of the achievements are missable however and care should be take to ensure that none are missed if you do not wish to play through twice. Difficulty does not affect any of the achievements in Minerva's Den.

Audio Diaries do not pertain to any achievements in the downloadable content they do add backstory and are worth picking up for anyone interested in Rapture lore.

Story:
4 of the achievements in the downloadable content are related to the story and are un-missable. As mentioned before difficulty does not affect them so play on whatever difficulty you desire.

Little Sisters:
There are 6 Little Sisters in Minerva's Den split across two areas of the downloadable content, Minerva's Den and the Operations areas with three Little Sisters in each. All you have to do for the ADAM Addict achievement is to either harvest or rescue all the little sister in both areas, you do not have to gather with each if you do not want to.

Vacuum Bots:
There are 10 vacuum bots in Minerva's Den split accross the same two areas as the Little Sisters, Minerva's Den and Operations. Each area has 5 bots in that have to be destroyed in order to get the achievement.

Lancer:
The Lancer is a new kind of Big Daddy that weilds the Ion Laser a new weapon unique to the downloadable content. They guard the Little Sisters in Minerva's Den being the only type of Big Daddy present. Killing a Lacer nets you the Lancer Killer achievment, it is unlikely this achievement will be missed due to it being easier to progress the more Adam the player has.

High Score:
The High Score achievement can be attained by scoring 9999 on the Spitfire mini game in the Operations area of the downloadable content. See the achievement guide for more details.

Conclusion:
Minerva's Den is a fun addition the Bioshock 2 gameplay experience adding another trip to Rapture and expanding the story of it. Overal 150 can be earned easily and in an enjoyable manner.

Non-Secret Achievements:

Garbage Collection - 10
Destroyed all 10 Vacuum Bots in Minerva's Denx DIAMONDZ Has created a guide for the locations of the Vacuum bots that can be found here. There are five in each the Minerva's Den and Operations areas.

Lancer Killer - 10
Killed a Lancer Big Daddy

Simply Kill a Lancer Big Daddy, as they are the only Big Daddies present in the downloadable content this will come quite easily the Ion Laser is an especially potent weapon for taking them down.

ADAM Addict - 10
Resolved All The Little Sisters In Minerva's Den

There are 6 Little Sisters in the downloadable content 3 in each the Operations and Minerva's Den areas. You can either harvest or rescue each one as long as all 6 are dealt with across the game.

The Little Sisters from Minerva's Den do carry over to the Operations area if you do not resolve all of them in the Minerva's Den area. This makes the achievement attainable until leaving the Operations area.

Non-Story Related Secret Achievements:

High Score - 10
Got 9999 points in one game of Spitfire

The Spitfire game is a semi hidden computer teminal located in the Operations area of the downloadable content. Once you enter operations if you progress to the programing area of the level. When you find the Brute Splicer with the Hacked bot head right from that area to an area with computer servers. Progress through the area and head up a series of stairs. You will then come across a Splicer standing at a terminal kill him and approach the terminal and press .

In the Vacuum Bot guide its just before you reach Operations bot 2/5.

Spitfire is a game similar to Asteriods, you control a ship on screen and have to destroy the incoming enemies which fire at you. You have four lives with which to achieve a score of 9999. Use the to move your craft and either or to fire. It is quite easy to achieve but a tactic i found useful was to move from right to left across the screen not stopping at all to avoid being destroyed.

Heres a video to better help describe it:

This is a really good guide, I am in Operations and forget if I got all the bots in Minerva, but I will be playing this DLC a few times as I DL'ed Bio2 from Games on Demand. Hate buying games btw.

You're my anal leakage bro code forever, OP. Good thing, btw.
