[top]Introduction

Welcome to Rapture

Bioshock 2 The protector Trials DLC pits you as a big daddy in the heart of several rapture well known landmarks as you adopt a little sister in each challenge and defend her while she gathers ADAM from the never ending hordes of splicers coming to kill you and get her for her ADAM. There are six locations in the protector trials, each has 3 different trials and each trial is harder than the previous trial, Trial 1 the easiest of all offers 1 golden star, then trial 2 which is more challenging and offers 2 golden stars, then lastly is Trial 3 which is the most challenging of the three in each location and it offers 3 golden stars. Upon successfully completing a trial you will be assigned an alphabetical score depending on how much ADAM you collected and then awarded the amount of stars associated with that trial. Earn a certain amount of stars to unlock the next location and continue your endless ADAM hunt. It takes skill full aiming and quick wits to be able to dispatch the splicers faster and more efficiently or you will find them soon overwhelming you, each trial poses as a different and unique challenge giving you access to limited health & EVE, as well as assigned specific weapons, ammo, plasmids & tonics which makes the task the same but in a different way each time. Protect the sister long enough without being interrupted by any splicers to rack ADAM multipliers and get to your goal faster, should the sister be interrupted and you will lose all the multipliers and start off scratch, survive the on going fight long enough until the little sister finishes her work and you pick her back up to end the trial.

Enjoy your stay


[top]Tips & Strategies

  • Each trial is unique because each has different settings to it such as: type of enemies spawning against you, weapons, weapon upgrades, types of ammo, plasmids, tonics, security and finally location & environment. So it is important to familiarize yourself with the settings of the trial you are attempting.
  • hack anything hackable before you start the gather, set up traps at spawn locations, if the trial offers telekinesis then move red explosive barrels to strategic locations where they can be used against splicers and rogue big daddies.
    use the money you earn from dispatching enemies to buy ammo and items from the local vending machines, and use your special ammo if the trial settings allows it.
  • Use your plasmids jointly with your weapons, and keep the very 1st and best rule of Bioshock combat burnt in your memory: "Remember the 1-2 punch, Zap-em' then Whack-em" - Atlas. If you are in a trial offering Electrocute then go berserk, electrocution then head shots/drill melee.
  • **MOST** important of all, use your plasmids jointly with the environment, if there's oil on the floor light it up and build a fiery defensive perimeter, if there's water on the floor electrocute it to create an instantaneous electric death trap, if there's water falling from the ceiling then electrocute it to create an electric fence. They might have an army, but you have the environment to your complete and destructive manipulation


[top]Roadmap

You Start out with only one location available with trials to play, and you need to play trials in order to unlock the next location but playing the easiest trials for 1 star will stop you short because there isn't enough stars to unlock the next location so you will have to play harder trials and beat them. Push at the Trials' main menu to view your trial progress and extra content that is unlocked with your progression.

Here is the list of trial locations in the order they are unlocked:
  • The Adonis Baths - Pre-unlocked
  • Atlantic Express Train Upkeep - 1 star
  • Pauper's Drop Market - 4 stars
  • Simon Wales' Church - 4 stars
  • Folly of Dionysus - 10 stars
  • Persephone Cellblock F - 10 stars

Trial By Fire
Earn 36 stars in the Protector Trials

Earned for successfully earning every star there is, it will take a bit of patience and practice to be able to survive every trial, also you don't need to earn an A rank in the trial in order to get the star, simply finish the trial successfully with any rank and you will get them.

Enemy of The Family
Earn an A rank in all Protector Trials

Not as difficult as it sounds, because each trial is different it will take practice and multiple tries to get an A rank which is earned for an almost perfect ADAM gather, or an A+ rank for a perfect ADAM gather.

Guardian Angel
Completed all bonus Protector Trials

Hidden Trophy

After completing every trial 6 new "bonus Protector Trials" will unlock 1 per map. These trials are different because there is no ADAM goal to achieve and every weapon is unlocked and fully upgraded and all plasmids are unlocked and fully upgraded as well as tonics and a Gene Bank in each level that lets you rearrange your inventory as you wish. Complete all of these trials to earn this trophy.

[top]
Perfect Protector
Collect 100% of the ADAM in a single Protector Trial

Each trial has a quota of ADAM to be collected by the little sister while you protect her, but in order for the sister to get all of that ADAM she has to gather undisturbed so she can rack an ADAM multiplier to help get to the goal, if you let a splicer slip past you and intervene with her work then your multiplier will go down by one. so keep your eye on the sister at all time and always remain by her side and should you wander away to re-heal or use the vending machines the set up a few traps around her first.

[top]
Get A Bigger Bucket
Collect 50% of the ADAM available in all Protector Trials

You shouldn't worry about this trophy if you are working to get the Enemy of The Family trophy, since earning an A rank will require that you earn approximately 90%-100% of ADAM in each trial.
