BioShock 2

BioShock 2 Achievements

All Weapon Upgrades

Find all 14 Power to the People weapon upgrades in the game.

There are 14 stations located throughout the game. You will need to apply the various upgrades to all your weapons for this achievement. You can only apply one upgrade to a weapon at each station so you will need to find all 14 of them. Make sure you check all corners of each area as they are rather easy to miss.

Does anyone know whether this has to be chronological? Hmm, probably, just hoping I can load up an old save and find the missing one(s) instead of redoing the gameā€¦? I know, some hope!

I'm just starting the game for the first time and am wondering if you are able to go back through the levels like in bioshock1 or do I need to find all the stations as I play through?

No, unlike the first game once you complete a level you cannot return to it.

#2, There are suppose dto be more upgrades than stations. It's designed to make you think about what weapons you use the most and upgrade them, while sacrificing others to remain at their simplest.

Did anyone else have trouble getting this achievement, I followed a guide and got all 14, but it didn't give me the achievement? :(

#10, I'm fairly sure the same thing happened to me. Probably unrelated, but i was listening to an audio log at about the same time I used the upgrade station.
Potentially a glitch?

So, I am using the audio diary/upgrade tracker site. I think I might have missed some of the upgrade stations in Paupers Drop. If I use the save file I have, get all the upgrades, then overwrite the save, will it update how many I have used? If not, would I have to play from the Paupers Drop save and play to the point I am at in Dionysus Park?

If you're trying to get everything in one play through, this may be the achievement that makes you have to do a second play. I got all 14 using a guide, and it didn't pop. Playing again now to sweep up this and the 9-Irony achievement.
