Angry Need help on Avid Iventor achievement.

I've beaten Bioshock 7 times and invented way more than 100 items, but I still can't get the Avid Inventor Achievement. I've looked at videos on youtube, followed everything thing they did and still can't get the Achievement. HELP PLEASE !!!!!!!

You might have a random glitched achievement. Or you might getting about 98 inventions. You never know. I have not played this game in a long time but check in the pause menu, it might show how many things you invented.

This was the only achievement I had to go back from my last save to get. I had to spend a good hour collecting items to invent before I got it. All I can suggest is that you try and make sure you pick up your inventions (don't let them just sit at the base of the machine) as I read somewhere that may affect the achievement.

BTW inventions do not carry across playthroughs - you must invent 100 items in a single game.

I actually numbered down the number of things I invented as I invented them, and I got around 130 with no achievement. I was using my friends copy, and he said he never got it, so my bet is that some of the games are actually glitched for that achievement.

1. must be done in one save
2. you dont need to pick em up, i never did.
3. get the tonic where you invent two for every one item
4. you will most likely have to go back throughout the game before you kill the last boss.

5. problem solved, i had no problems.

Well put. I love it when someone says the game is glitched due to (fill in the blank). It gets people worried about not getting their achievements

This was the last achievement i got for bioshock (excluding that pesky not dying one.) It was surely a bitch but what I did was go through one playthrough collecting every single ingredient i could find. Search every nook and cranny of the market area. Do not invent a single item until you have the inveting plasmids and tonics or whatever. one makes two for every one and the other knocks one ingredient off per item. Then when you get all the way to right before you get in the elevator to face the last boss, start inventing.

Keep a tally of how many you make. I think I got to about 95 and then went back and killed anyone i saw and looted their bodies. It is really a pain but very doable.
