Video Guide Overview

Welcome to my video trophy guide for Bioshock 2 Remastered.

Following the below videos from start to finish will earn you the platinum for Bioshock 2 Remastered in a single playthrough. We will be playing on the hardest difficulty from the start and collecting everything along the way. I will also tell you the perfect place to get all trophies. We also will have the Vita Chambers turned off for 'Big Brass Balls' so that means we need to make lots of saves. If you die, you'll need to reload a save and there is no auto-save. I have not covered the DLCs in video form yet.

Unlike the first Bioshock backtracking isn't really a thing in Bioshock 2, once you leave an area, that's it. For that reason it makes a lot of the trophies missable. At the start of the very first video I explain about the missable trophies and what to expect from the guide in general.

Just a quick word on the missable trophies.

  • Big Brass Balls is for completing the game without using a single Vita Chamber. When you first start the game, go to the options and make sure 'Disable Vita Chambers' is set to 'on'. It's bad phrasing, I know. Then just don't touch that option for the rest of the game.

  • Grand Daddy is for defeating three big daddies in a fight without dying. This does not need to be done in a single fight, but across multiple. While this trophy is technically missable, we can't miss it because we will have Vita Chambers turned off, meaning we can't die.

  • Dealt with Every Little Sister is for, well, dealing with every little sister in the game. You will need to kill their big daddy and make sure to 'adopt' each one, then rescue them after the ADAM harvesting.

  • Master Gatherer is for gathering 600 ADAM with little sisters. When you kill a little sister's big daddy, you can adopt them, then a little mini hoard mode start and you'll have to protect the little sister while she gathers ADAM. We will do this with every little sister, but it is missable because you could choose not do this or miss a little sister and not gather enough.

  • Rapture Historian is for finding 100 audio diaries. This is missable because you cannot backtrack in the game.

  • All Plasmids is for finding or purchasing all Plasmids. This is missable because you do need to find some of them and there is no backtracking in the game.

  • All Weapons Upgraded is for finding every Power to the People machine and upgrading every weapon in the game. This is missable because there are an exact number of Power to the People machines, 14 upgrades, 14 machines and there is no backtracking if you leave an area and have missed one.

  • Fully Upgrade a Plasmid is for, you guessed it, fully upgrading a plasmid. This one is hard to miss, but if you don't gather enough ADAM or forget to buy a level 3 upgrade for a plasmid, you will miss it.

  • Fully Upgrade a Weapon is for fully upgrading a weapon. This is unmissable for us, but if you skip enough Power to the People machines you won't be able to fully upgrade a weapon. We'll be getting them all.

  • Look at You, Hacker is for killing 50 enemies with hacked security. There is only a certain amount of security (cameras and turrets) in the game, so this can be easily missed. Hacking all security cameras and turrets you come across until you get this trophy is advised.

  • Master Protector is for getting through a little sister gather without you or the little sister taking any damage. A lot of the gathers are quite erratic with lots of enemies coming from all directions. There are only one or two that are perfect to get this trophy. This trophy is highly missable.

  • Max Plasmid Slots is for fully upgrading to the maximum number of plasmid slots. This is missable because they need to be purchased from Gatherer's Gardens using ADAM and if you don't harvest enough you won't be able to buy them all. This is no problem for us though, we'll have more than enough.

  • One Research Track is for maxing out one research track, meaning you need to fully research a single enemy type. If you don't do research, you can easily miss this one.

  • Research Master is for fully researching all enemy types. If you don't do research, you will obviously miss this quite easily. You don't get the research camera until Pauper's Drop, once you have it, always have it rolling when killing enemies.

  • Trap Master is for killing 30 enemies using only traps. Obviously this can be easily missed if you don't use any traps. The easiest way to get this is with trap bolts, so as soon as you get those, start using them.

  • Savior is for saving every little sister and for sparing Grace, Stanley and Gil. Kill any of the people mentioned or harvest any of the little sisters and you'll miss this trophy.

  • 9-Irony is for paying respects to the founder of Rapture, basically hit a statue of Andrew Ryan with a golf club. This trophy can only be unlocked in Ryan's Amusements, hence it being missable.

  • Counterattack is for killing an enemy with their own projectile. Obviously you will miss this if you run out of turrets to try it on. You'll need the telekinesis plasmid to throw projectiles back at an enemy.

  • Unbreakable is for defending yourself from a big sister without dying. While this is technically missable, we can't miss it, we'll have Vita Chambers turned off.
