BioShock 2 Achievements

Master Protector

Get through a Gather with no damage and no one getting to the Little Sister.   

This maybe be a little difficult until you find the right spot. While making your way through Ryan Amusements and enter "Journey to the Surface", you will have to harvest ADAM from a body in a open room. You can hack the turret and place Rivet Traps on the floor and around the doorways. Once you have everything setup, place the sister down to collect ADAM. You can now back up into the corner and pick off splicers as they flood the room.

As long as you watch out for any splicers with guns and let the turret do all the work you should earn this without any issues.

Note: Use Trap Rivets along the side of the table. and i also recommend failing
a hack at the heal station near the bot shutdown, then hack the 2 bot that
deactivate. go to the corpse and save then set the sister down and hide. ready your eletro bolt and Machine Gun.

In Dionysus there is a small room with only one door. Facing inwards from the door, there are stairs on your left that lead to a balcony overlooking the room. An Adam Corpse is at the back.

At first I figured this room was prime because of the single entrance... But literally zero Splicers come through the door. Instead, they all spawn upstairs.

If you stand under the balcony, trap the bottom of the stairs with everything you got, and have your spear gun out for the last couple stragglers (one hit kill is a must against Leadheads) then this one is almost too easy.

i finally got it, i already completed the game and have gotten quite good at it now, so i started the game again and found that it is easy on the 1st harvest in the main room in ryan amusements, as they all come from one direction and only one of them has a gun (pistol). i put 6 trap rivets on each side of the wall with 2 vending machines and just picked the rest off. also BEWARE about 3 splicers jump down off the balcony. good look. :)

Mini turrets help a lot with this achievement. Place 3 or even 4 turrets, summon bots with security command, hide near and just wait.

Crias SK's suggestion did the trick. Lined the stairwell with trap rivets and mines. Put mini turrets outside the stairwell and let loose some bots. Only one splicer made it through. Hit him with hypnotize and picked up the sister.

What's this 1st try crap?!
And you don't have turrets to place at this point in the game.

I've tried in both locations dozens (not an exaggeration) of times.
The splicers always shoot me and ignore my turrets.

And how does hiding in a small doorway help? That doesn't block bullets and it doesn't protect the little sister. They can't get to her either.

Here's to a dozen+ more attempts.
(You jerks who take time to post that you got it with no problems, but don't leave any advice, thanks for nothing.)
My advice: don't expect this to unlock the 1st several attempts.

Finally, after my 30+ attempt.
Purposely missing a hack to call out turret drones, then hacking them to be friendly, helped. I had 2 of them, and they did most of the work.

After many attempts I finally went out and hacked two bots and had the turret hacked as well. Then I set up traps at every entrance, this worked great.

I did it multiple times, no alerts , she didn't yell, and took no damage. But I didn't get it. Does difficulty matter?

I just got it and I did it on hardcore or whatever the highest is. This particular location doesn't seem to spawn too many. I had a lot of trap rivets and had a wall to my back, I would quickly turn my attention back and forth to gun down anyone running up, there was enough distance that I could dodge or gun them down in time. It's where the little sister harvests in Pauper's Drop. It was on the 4th level of Town Square. There's a wall that saved my life from behind. Splicers can potentially drop down, but it happened less often and the camera you can hack could save your life too. =) Good luck!

I'm in the same boat as Goremasher90. I've done it multiple times on the second harvest location and I don't take any damage and the little sister didn't yell about getting hit, but I didn't get the achievement.

Comment #17 by m00ney79
Saturday, May 07, 2011 @ 02:53:52 PM

UPDATE: Okay, I fgured out why I wasn't getting the achievement. I just realized that the adam gathering (in terms of this acheivement) doesn't just end when the little sister has collected all of the adam. You actually have to pick up the little sister at the end before the achievement will unlock. I never actually tried picking her up at the end before i reloaded a checkpoint to try it again. Hope this helps some people.

I did it on the previously mentioned location with the balcony. Just spam the stairwell and balcony area with trap rivets, proxy mines, and mini sentries. Make sure you have the nearby health machine hacked because the splicers will try to use it. Best place to stand I found was next to a pillar opposite the stairwell so you can cover stragglers coming down as well as the health machine.

Not that hard if you wait a bit till you have mini turrets, bunch of trap rivets, and cyclone trap plasmid. Also Proximity bombs. Onc eyou got those just get a place where you have good cover

I did it siren alley, the upper part above the grocery store. Trap rivets +
mini turrets helped; Decoy went a long way too.

Comment #21 by firedancer84

Best place by far to grab this one is in Ryan Amusements. There are 2 doors each with oil or some flammable substance on the floor to use, a vending machine inside in the far corner and a turret right beside the body you need ADAM from.

Basically throw as many traps as possible on the entrance that the turret ISN'T looking at and let it chew through the Splicers that are heading right for it!

Comment #22 by AtomicThumbs
Saturday, August 06, 2011 @ 09:05:24 AM

I got it in Ryan Amusements in the room with the turret. Hack the turret and have two hacked bots with you. They should take care of everything while you focus on splicers with guns and splicers that get too close to the little sister. Put traps on the table facing horizontally.

Comment #23 by Apple2Forever
Tuesday, August 16, 2011 @ 06:14:54 AM

I actually managed this without even trying for it. I was playing on Easy though. Mini turrets and lots of trap rivets seem to do the trick.

Comment #24 by colfrost 27

I actually got it with out meaning to in Fontaines office. The entrance to Fontaine's office is a perfect bottle neck and it funnels all the splicers and big daddies down a corridor that you can load up with trap rivets and trap spears. It also help if you have two friendly bots and the bees plasmid as the bees will attack anything pretty far off and distract them while they're getting shot by the turret and the bots or they step into a trap. The only problem you might have is if a big daddy appears in the office withyou that happened to me on my second run through. Hope that helps.

really simple to get, if you prepare. Just make sure you are on the easiest setting, on the first little sister make sure you have a security turret hacked and following you, and then just set as many trap rivets as possible, put them everywhere. surround the girl with them, then set her down. I'd recommend hacking the health station near it. Then just sit in the corner and shock everyone then shoot them (headshots work very well). Really simple

For anyone who's achievement hasnt unlocked when they think it should have; try picking the litter sister up. I was sat there thinking OMG this is impossible, I DIDN'T get hit and NO ONE got to the sister, where the f*ck is my achievement!! Picked her up, bang. Just so you know :) Oh and my tip is to save after every wave of splicers that way you don't need to go all the way back to the beginning again

I got this in Paupers Drop, near the shrine on a rooftop. There are 2 entrances which can be lined with traps, 2/3 of your trap rivets on the entrance on the side of the corpse, 1/3 of your trap rivets on the other entrance near the shrine. While the little sister is harvesting, keep yourself hidden on the other side of the wall, watching the shrine and picking off the last remaining enemies which get past the traps. It also helps if you put some mini turrets near the corpse to help the little sister (can't remember if they were available when I used this tactic)

Comment #30 by m3nacingn3mesis
Tuesday, January 24, 2012 @ 11:37:14 PM

easy tip 2 times during the gathering there are breaks with like 5 seconds of no enemys save then and reload when hit the splicers with guns dont shoot the sister and wont shoot you if you are hidden out of their sight but saves are easiest did this with no traps and no security bots or turrets in paupers which is open as all hell so save save save

took me a few tries but definitely the easiest way to do it is in dyonisus park, the room with the balcony and the staircase. they all drop in at the top of the stairs so in that room i put a mini turret and a proximity mine. then line the stairs with 5 trap spears then another 2 proximity mines at the bottom just for good measure. make sure to hide underneath the balcony because if you stand where they can see you from up there those spider motherfuckers can still get you. also used a decoy at the bottom of the stairs just in case if they did get all the way down there i could just zap them and headshot them real quick.

DID NOT GET IT! I did it in the location that the guide talks about. She didnt yell. No one got close enough to touch her. I picked her up. nothing...

Comment #35 by dbardoul
Saturday, June 23, 2012 @ 04:45:10 PM

I recommend doing this in Siren Alley inside The Pink Pearl. This is the right after you first find the spear gun. Go upstairs and hack the turret on the other side of the hallway from the body. Then set 4 mini-turrets by the body. Crouch on the left side of the hallway, between the body and the hacked turret, where the wall pokes out for cover. I was never shot at and the mini-turrets took care of almost every single enemy.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 @ 03:12:29 PM

I got it in the showers as you are collecting adam-infused plants for Alexander. Granted I was playing it on easy, at this point I had max ammo of all types so I just lined the walls with trap spears, trap rivets, some proximity mines, and 3 mini turrets at the entrances, sat at the back wall away from everything and just used incinerate 3 and machine gun on anything that got through. There were only a few splicers so nothing to even get excited about. Truthfully, very easy.

Comment #38 by DecadentBeaver
Saturday, August 18, 2012 @ 05:37:02 PM

I tried this in 4 different locations, and on each occasion, I did not have the little sister hit, and after picking her up, no achievement. Is this glitchy in any way? Kind of annoyed, as its 1 of 2 offline achievements I have left to do before I try boosting the online.

Comment #40 by Taka Thunder
Thursday, November 01, 2012 @ 05:38:00 PM

I had the hardest time with this, until I found a perfect place, I was even playing on hard. In Ryans amusment, in the mid left room hear an ammo bandito, and in the same room there is a terret and a charriet seat that looks like a big helmet, or like something from cinderella....

if you load up and put as many rivet traps at each of the doors and all around the girl...then hide in the corner next to this helmet/charriet/seat, behind the have a really good chance at survival because the goons barely see you. just aim in front, and shoot with your machine gun when needed.

doesnt matter how much energy you have, because it needs to be perfect anyway...and I only had half a blue plasmid tonic to use...

have fun!

Comment #41 by 867stevo
Sunday, December 16, 2012 @ 07:10:42 AM

I got this easily as for some reason no splicers came to attack, even though when the gather was done, I went downstairs and there was a splicer walking about. However, I got the natural camouflage tonic (level 2 research of houdini splicers), and if you set the sister down then just stand there and go invisible, none come to attack.

I got it in this ice room where there were 2 turrets and 2 cameras I forgot which place but I know it was about half or more in the story but I hacked everthing, put mini turrets around as well as traps, have the decoy plasmid helps keep the splicers distracted while turrets and bots do work

Comment #47 by ShatterHeartx
Saturday, February 01, 2014 @ 11:20:22 PM

I got mine on this in the area where you find Gil Alexander. There is a room somewhere off to his left where you find a glowing corpse and a turret beneath part of the walkway. I just hacked the turret, set the sister down, and used my machine gun to down anything that got close to her. Turret went ballistic and killed most of them.

With some stroke of strange luck or some sort of glitch, playing in Fontaine Futuristics just now, I had a gather where another Big Daddy with another Little Sister was nearby. Some dramatic music started playing, while the other Big Daddy watched as my Little Sister gathered the ADAM. Then, he walked through my trap spear, enraging him, so I hid while my turrets killed him off. After he died and I picked up my Little Sister, I got the achievement. No Splicers came for her! Then I rescued my Little Sister, adopted the one that was crying, and on my next 2 gathers, still no Splicers came for me! Strange.

I did this on siren alley on the second floor near a turret with my mini turrets and 2 bots took a few tries cos I kept getting in the way of my turret but there's a room next to the turret you can stay in and let the bots do all the work.
