[top]Tips and Strategies

  • The game is linear so there is no backtracking. You must find all of the level's audiotapes and Power to the People weapon's stations before leaving, or you will miss several trophies (see list above).
  • Also there are little find along the way trophies I will detail so you will not miss any of them during your first playthrough. I encourage you when you begin a level click on the story related trophies spoiler tag and I will reveal which trophies you will find, video locations of the audio tapes, how many power to people stations, little sisters, and any other pertinent information.
  • My final word of advice is to SAVE OFTEN AND CREATE MULTIPLE SAVES!
  • Boosting Method for online trophies:

[top]Roadmap

  • Playthrough 1 (Easy Mode) - During your first trip across Rapture it is best to play on Easy with the Vita Chambers off (by hitting as soon as Delta arises from the ground and select off under “Disable Vita-Chambers” so that you are not allowed to be revived from them). Easy mode provided the player with the best health and the Splicer's A.I. is greatly reduced. The reduction renders their combat abilities void of difficulty. The reason for turning off the Vita Chambers during the first playthrough is because of the Brass Balls trophy. Unlike Bioshock 1 where you had to play Survivor difficulty without Vita Chambers; in Bioshock 2 you are allowed to play in Easymode with the chambers off. Focus on all of the trophies along the way and also check in each stage's spoiler tag as I will reveal which trophies you need to be focusing on during your stay in the area. Do not harvest any of the Little Sisters. Instead find each one in every stage (along with Grace, Poole, and Gil you will find in the game) and allow them to gather ADAM for you and return them to the pipe holes. Overall, the Easy mode playthrough will net you around 65% of the trophies as long as you take the moral high ground. The focus is a fun playthrough allowing the player to enjoy Rapture while collecting everything in the game.
  • Playthrough 2 (Hard Mode) - Hard mode is not truly difficult. The enemy A.I. is commendable but not overly daunting. I would recommend remembering where the Power to the People Stations are because upgraded weapons will make your life easier. If you saved all the Little Sisters and the 3 NPCs on the first playthrough you may harvest all of the Little Sisters (for 160 ADAM per Harvest) so that you may stock up on Plasmids with all due haste. This playthrough should be done quickly and efficiently so that you may now begin your Multiplayer trophies.
  • Multiplayer Trophies - Work your way up to level 40, getting the other online trophies in the meantime.



[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
Unlocked all trophies


Once all preceding trophies have been obtained you shall be awarded a new platinum trophy for your collection.

[top]
Welcome to Rapture
Completed your first non-private match


Participate in a public Multiplayer match. You must finish the match from start to finish. During your first match practice using plasmids and gunplay to establish which style is best. If you have played Bioshock 1 the controller layout and gameplay is the exact same concept. For those who have not, you may only use one attack type (plasmid or gun) at a time.

[top]
Unnatural Selection
Scored your first kill in a non-private match


A message must pop up on your HUD indicating you killed a player and earned "+10" ADAM. An assist does not count. Hit the enemy with Incinerate! and follow up with a few shots of the shotgun.

A good way to kill players early in your development online is to shotgun/ice plasmid. Thanks to besne for the tip

[top]
Disgusting Frankenstein
Became a Big Daddy for the first time in a non-private match


During a Survival of the Fittest,Civil War, Turf War there will be an announcement about 2:00 minutes through the match that a Big Daddy suit has become available. Find the Big Daddy suit and press when prompted.

[top]
"Mr. Bubbles--No!"
Took down your first Big Daddy in a non-private match


I recommend not engaging the player who is Big Daddy until either their health is really low or when there are a couple of your teammates to assist; but your shot/plasmid attach must be the final blow. Or if you are like me and want glory go in with a charged plasmid shot and circle around the Big Daddy. Fortunately, the player who is the Big Daddy moves slowly so take advantage of that factor. Most users will throw the proximity mines to kill you. Ignore the mines and focus on the Big Daddy. A hacked turret helps, as the Big Daddy must now focus their Rivet Gun on the unfriendly turret.

[top]
Two-Bit Heroics
Completed your first trial in a non-private match


When you reach level 3 you unlock the ability to complete Trials. Trials are by definition performances beyond your normal play attempts. The easiest ones for trophy purposes are the hit player with plasmid Incinerate! 30 times or killing 30 players with the shotgun. While in the Multiplayer Lobby take a couple of minutes to see which Trials you are working on because of the extra ADAM you receive upon completion.

[top]
Mother Goose
Saved your first Little Sister in a non-private match


Saving a Little Sister can only be done in Capture the Little Sister mode. You must be on offense and be the player who puts the Little Sister into the vent by holding when prompted. Best method I found was the plasmids Houdini with Aero Dash. At the beginning of the round use Houdini to grab the Little Sister and use Aero Dash to create distance from the defenders. Continue to use Aero Dash all the way to the Vent.

Man About Town
Played at least one non-private match on each multiplayer map


It is not possible to play all maps on one game setting. You will have to diversify the game modes a bit. Play some Survival of the Fittest, ADAM Grab, and Civil War to allow an opportunity to play all maps.

Bought a Slot
Bought one Plasmid or Tonic Slot at a Gatherer's Garden


In Pauper's Drop you are given a chance to buy a plasmid or tonic slot at the Gatherer's Garden. 40 ADAM for the plasmid slot and 25 for the tonic slot. Choose whichever you prefer, either one counts toward the bronze.

[top]
Max Plasmid Slots
Fully upgraded to the maximum number of plasmid slots


You will purchase your plasmid slots at the Gatherer's Garden. In the beginning you will be given 3 plasmid slots. Purchase 4 more for 40, 50, 60, and 70 ADAM each. The last one will come when you are given the Summon Eleanor plasmid to make a total of 8 slots.

[top]
Upgraded a Weapon
Upgraded a weapon at a Power to the People Station


You will find your first station in Ryan Amusements. If you are looking at the map it is inside the Security area near the machine gun.

[top]
Fully Upgraded a Weapon
Installed the third upgrade to a weapon


Because the Rivet Gun or Drill will be your primary weapon it is best to focus the station upgrades to those weapons. You will unlock the third upgrade for a weapon when you have obtained the two basic upgrades for the weapon. The third upgrade is typically an extra-splash type damage upgrade. When you find your third station in Pauper's Drop you should have a fully uploaded Rivet Gun.

All Weapon Upgrades
Found every Power to the People weapon upgrade in the game


Here is a breakdown of how many stations there are per level.

Distance Hacker
Used the Hack Tool to hack an object at a distance


When you first find the Hack Tool you will be asked to hack a door control panel. Do so and you will be given the trophy.

[top]
Prolific Hacker
Hacked one of each kind of machine


You must hack one of the following to unlock the trophy. If you are hacking everything in sight you should get this around Ryan Amusements when you first see the turret attack you. It is not necessary to hack from a distance.

List of Hackable Devices

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Master Hacker
Hacked 30 machines at a distance with the Hack Tool


A distance hack is when you hack any hackable machine (bots, cameras, doors, and vending machines) using the hack tool. Does not count when you hit to hack.

[top]
First Research
Researched a Splicer with the Research Camera


You will find the Research Camera in the pawn shop of Pauper's Drop. Once you obtain it, equip it and when you see a white circle around the target splicer press to begin research.

[top]
One Research Track
Maxed out one Research Track


The first fully researched track will be the Thuggish Splicer in Pauper's Drop where you will find the Research Camera. A fully researched track is when the research track is at level 4.

[top]
Research Master
Completed all research on every subject in Rapture


When you find the Research Camera in the pawnshop of the Pauper's Drop you begin one of the time consuming processes of researching all of the enemies of Rapture. I would recommend using the following tonics to enhance your research: Keen Observer and the Extended Reel.

To help your score do the following method:
  1. Turn on the research camera on the target
  2. Use all of your plasmids against the target (will increase the score better)
  3. Kill the splicer

You should normally score an A+ with this method.

Here are the enemies you must research to level 4 to complete the research track:

[top]
Grand Daddy
Defeated 3 Big Daddies without dying during the fight


Do not worry about having to fight 3 Big Daddies at once. You must kill 3 Big Daddies in a row without dying though. The dying refers to actual engagement with the Big Daddy. Your first Big Daddy is in Ryan Amusements that is 1. The next two will come from Pauper's Drop. These are your first 3 in a row. If you are playing on Easy then preparations for the Big Daddy fight are simple. Hacked bots, extra EVE hypos and anti-armor bullets will decimate your opponent with ease. Do not forget to use Electro Bolt when the Big Daddy is close to allowing some distance betwixt the both of you.

[top]
Adopted a Little Sister
Adopted a new Little Sister for the first time


You will adopt a Little Sister after killing your first Big Daddy in Ryan Amusements. Lead the Big Daddy into the water and shock him. Use the Rivet Gun or shock the Big Daddy and then use the drill. Cannot be missed nor do you need to do anything else.

[top]
Master Gatherer
Gathered 600 ADAM with Little Sisters


If you are following the recommended number of playthroughs then you should get this around Dionysus Park. It is not a single 600 but a cumulative total of 600 ADAM. Around 15 gathers without Harvesting will work. With Harvesting it takes only 4 Harvests as each Little Sister submits 160 ADAM.

[top]
Fully Upgraded a Plasmid
Fully Upgraded one Plasmid to the Level 3 version


I would recommend purchasing the Electro Bolt to the Level 3 version first. The first level is free, second level is 120 ADAM, and Level 3 is 240 ADAM. So saving up can be a chore.

[top]
All Plasmids
Found or Purchased all 11 basic Plasmid types


Here is a break down of all 11 Plasmids needed, the Source, and earliest availability:

[top]
Unbreakable
Defended yourself against the Big Sister without dying


Easily done on the Easy setting. The first Big Sister on the first level does not count as you only wound it. The best method to take down the Big Sister is to use Armor-Piercing ammo and the Electro Bolt along with the Incinerate! plasmid. Hacked security devices help as does your environment. When it is near oil, burn her. When in water, shock her. (giggity)

[top]
Look at You, Hacker
Killed 50 enemies using only hacked Security


The trophy has to be forced a little bit. You cannot harm the Splicer and allow any hacked Turret, Security Bot, Security Camera, or Mini Turrets from the Hack Tool. It will take some time so do not worry. Try to hack everything and allow the hacked devices to perform their jobs.

[top]
Trap Master
Killed 30 enemies using only Traps


The Rivet Gun has Trap ammo. A kill counts as the Splicer dying from the Trap Rivet. The Splicer does not have to die from the Trap on the ground. You may also fire the Trap Rivet at the Splicer to accelerate reception of the trophy.

[top]
Counterattack
Killed an enemy with its own projectile


Two Methods:
  1. Leadhead Splicer- Wait until the Splicer has thrown a grenade. Once you see the grenade use your Telekinesis power, grab the grenade, and thrown it back to its original owner.
  2. Big Daddy Rumbler- The Rumbler will launch missiles at you. Wait until his health is low and when he fires one return to sender.

Master Protector
Got through a Gatherer with no damage and no one getting to the Little Sister


Best done during the first defend the Little Sister event. Lay down trap rivets around each doorway and not near the Little Sister. I recommend that method because the Splicers need to die before they are able to hit you. The annoying part of the event is to not be hit by the Leadhead Splicers. But if you have a Security Bot and the Turret it should be easy. Spam Electro Bolt and do not use your drill. The Rivet Gun will suffice. Create a manual save right before you lay down any traps in case you would like to change up your strategy.

Big Spender
Spent 2000 dollars at Vending Machines


The trophy does not require a collection of $2000 spent at once. Every time you find money and are near vending machine purchase ammo as it is the most expensive. The trophy usually pops up around Siren Alley or Dionysus Park.

Dealt with Every Little Sister

During the first playthrough do not harvest the Little Sisters. On the second harvest all of the Little Sisters. Here is a breakdown per level of the Little Sisters.

Against All Odds
Finished the game on the hardest difficulty level


When you begin a new game select Hard. I advise doing this on the second playthrough. Quickly play the game as you should know where the Power to the People Stations are and can easily harvest the Little Sisters. If you are well equipped adopt a Little Sister, let her harvest two Angels, and when near the Vent harvest for the maximum output of ADAM. Your Tonic purchases should focus on defense, health, and EVE.

Savior
Saved every Little Sister and spared Grace, Stanley, and Gil


You must rescue all 12 Little Sisters and do not kill Grace, Stanley, and Gil when given the option. When the opportunity arises to kill the 3 targets simply walk away to the next objective and that will count as sparing their lives.

Paid your respects to the founder of Rapture

When you enter Ryan Amusements in Chapter 3 seek out the first floor entrance. On your left you will see the former leader of Rapture. Just behind his filing cabinet is a golf club. Use telekinesis to lift the club and then throw the club at Ryan's head. Remember, "A Man Chooses!"
