Minerva's Den Achievement Guide
Minerva's Den is a single player installment for Bioshock 2 which is separate from the main storyline. Without going into too much detail and spoiling everything; you play as a Big Daddy and the main antagonist is a gentleman named "Wahl" who thinks he can predict the future because of a computer with the moniker of "The Thinker". Needless to say... splicing is a helluva drug.
You will spend approximately 5 hours traversing this campaign; four of the achievements are story related and can't be missed, while the final 4 are missable achievements. But with use of the roadmap and the guide you won't have an issue. Difficulty does not affect any achievement, so you can play on Easy if you wish. The higher the difficulty, the scarcer supplies become.
The story takes you to a new part of Rapture which is known as Minerva's Den. It's plenty dark, gloomy and wet like the rest of Rapture; it's also filled with Splicers that would love nothing more then to rip your face off. You will tussle with some familiar foes, along with a few new ones; Splicers and Big Daddy's alike. You can also gain access to a new weapon (Ion Laser), a new plasmid (Gravity Well) and 2 new gene tonics (Drill Dash, Master Protector).
You will earn 4 story related achievements as you delve deeper into Rapture; they are: Login, Root Access Granted, Logout, and SUDO.
Please note: there are Audio Logs scattered throughout Minerva's Den, but they are in no way attached to any achievements; they are more just for plot addition. HERE is a link to an audio guide walkthrough.
Lancer Killer: This technically is missable (although highly unlikely) should you choose not to engage one. However, if you're going for the other achievements, 'ADAM Addict' specifically, you will have to kill a Lancer. You will stumble across at least 6 of them during this campaign.
Garbage Collection: This achievement requires you to destroy 10 vacuum bots during the campaign. There are 5 in Minerva's Den and 5 in Operations; should you move on to Operations without destroying the 5 bots in the Den, you will miss this achievement. HERE is a link to the walkthrough.
ADAM Addict: You must rescue, or harvest, all the Little Sisters. Again, you must get them all in one area before moving on to the next. There are 3 Little Sisters in Minerva's Den and 3 in Operations; so 6 in total. If you are having trouble finding a Little Sister, as is similar to the main game, locate a Big Daddy and follow it to a vent where he'll 'call' a Little Sister.
High Score: This is a mini game that can be found in Operations; you must get a high score of 9999 points with 4 lives. There's a terminal in an office upstairs that's a bit off the beaten path. It's basically a game of asteroids. Should you fail to reach the needed score you can try again. It's listed as missable due to you being able to miss the area; not that you only have one attempt at getting the score. Please refer to the guide for an accurate location.
This was a relatively short DLC addition to Bioshock 2, but it was entertaining with a decent plot line for what we'd expect out of Rapture. Assuming you follow the guide, you should have little issue with completing the DLC campaign whilst gaining all the achievements in one playthrough. Just be vigilant to check what you've done before you move on to another area that you can't return from.
