I'm definitely going to go back and give this a try, love the game the first 2 times I played it, I just hope I can exploit the glitch.

Great Guide!

This game is one of my favorites. Two years after originally beating this game I've come back and have just about finished it again on hard. Great tips! Thanks a bunch!

I actually thought the game was fairly easy on Hard. Especially Atlas. With the electric Gel and other items fully upgraded/loaded, I was able to beat him without losing any health even on hard.

Best hint is just spam the save button religiously. Every time you get thru a room alive and without losing a lot of health packs/eve/ammo, save. Do it the time after that, the time after that, and so on and so forth.

If it looks like you're going to die, go to the dashboard or the LOAD file before you die, just to make sure the game doesnt think you died.



And the Big Daddy killer electric gel is a lifesaver on Hard.






Also, as for Atlas, when you get to him, use Telekinesis to move as many explosive barrels in the area to the spot where he jumps down to. It takes a lot of time, but it takes his bar all the way down the first time with just 1 blast of the barrels. Then the explosive shotgun rounds/electric gel finish the rest. Easiest boss battle on hard that I've ever found in any game.

Change Difficulty for the last fight

Does changing the difficulty from easy to hard at the ATLAS fight still work to get the 140 gamerscore? I want to get the full 1100 on my first playthrough and would like to make it as easy as possible.

I remember getting this achievement. Such a fun game. The only problem I had was that I saved in the middle of fighting a Rosie. I had just realized I was about to die after playing for 3 hours. After multiple loads I eventually beat the Rosie but it was so hard. Excellent game though.

I have 100% this game and used all methods so to confirm YOU HAVE TO DISABLE VITA CHAMBERS unless your amazingly good and don't die. Reason being the update adds the extra achievement the the option to disable the vita chamber. I used this method and it worked a charm where my bro didn't and he didn't get it so to be safe i would disable.

Secondly THE GLITCH disabling the vita chamber sometimes disappears from the menu. What i did was recover my profile on a different console and the option appeared again so i played the game and recovered my profile back onto my console

kinda pissed played through twice no achievement, no option for diable vita chambers either. ill never play this game again



if you have the vita chamber glitch you can fix it with this


- Deleted the DLC
- Cleared the harddisks cache
- Rebooted the 360
- Used an old silver account with US address data to:
- Download the DLC
- Started game and downloaded title update (=> game restart)
- Started new game (hard):
=> Welcome screen for new tonics, "Disable Vita Chambers" option.
- Logged in with my usual (gold) account
- Started new game (hard):
=> Welcome screen for new tonics, "Disable Vita Chambers" option.
- Loaded save game (hard):
=> Welcome screen for new tonics, "Disable Vita Chambers" option.
=> Earned barss balls achievement


i just loaded my last save and beat the last boss and it worked

Well I just screwed around getting my VitaChambers toggle to display in the menu now, so I guess I just wanted to verify.

If I create a new game now, on hard - and when I get in game, turn off Vita-chambers and swap to easy, I'll be fine to play through and kill fontaine / swap to hard for brass balls?

And it will allow me to die with the vitachambers turned off, because it wont spawn me inside one, right? Or do I need to absolutely never die during this play through because everything will corrupt?

Doesn't really matter. If you have any new save slots, though, then I recommend you save there.

If playing on hard, don't waste your time on the big daddies if you don't have to. Come back later in the game and kill them when you are upgraded to get the extra Eve.

Better to ignore them while you can.

So this achievment requires you to play the game on hard without vita chambers so what happens when you die? Do you just keep saving your game?

Talking Completed Tonight!!!

I've just completed this tonight. When I downloaded the DLC my vita chamber option was there, so looks like I'm one of the lucky ones who didn't get glitched.

I played this legitimately, and my advice for anyone trying this for real (ie not using the cheat to load Hard during final boss fight) is this:

*Hack everything you can. Turrets and Cameras are you friends
*Buy the Hypnotise Big Daddy asap. Once you have rescued the little sisters on each level let the Big Daddy's do your work for you
*Buy every Health upgrade and Eve upgrade you can. The only plasmids I had at the end of the game were maxxed fire and electricity, telekinesis, hypnotise big daddy and the security camera one (makes unhacked cameras attack bad guys instead of you - this was a pickup not a purchase)
*For Big Daddys - the rocket launcher is your friend. Prior to getting the rocket launcher electricity is your friend. You can return to previous levels when in the travel sphere by using the cross pad instead of the stick, so you can return later in the game to gather little sisters you've left behind

It's not so hard if you've beaten the game once and have an idea of how the combat system works, and how to best fight the various mobs. If you die, you simply get returned to the main menu so its a simple game reload. Just ensure to save often. If you're having trouble with the final fight, there are lots of great hints on the internet. He is weak to certain attacks in certain stages so know what to hit him with when.

Best of Luck!
