– See Avid Inventor.

Avid Inventor (Bronze) – Successfully invent at least 100 items.
– Once you reach ‘Arcadia’ you will start to pick up random materials, such as a “Rubber Hose”.  Loot everything and everyone and make items at the U-Invents.  You do not have to pick up everything you make.  You should be able to easily get this before the end of the game.  If you don’t have it you can go back to previous areas and enemies will respawn.  You will then be able to loot their bodies again.

Ammo Inventor (Bronze) – The player has successfully invented all possible ammo types.
– See Avid Inventor.

[Hidden] Little Sister Savior (Silver) – The player has completed the game without harvesting any Little Sisters.
– You must go through the entire game without harvesting a single Little Sister.  You do not have to rescue every Little Sister, just do not harvest any. You can actually go through most of the game without killing a Big Daddy.  Just save before you take on a Big Daddy just in case you accidentally press the wrong button.

Tonic Collector (Bronze) – Collect or Invent 58 Tonics in the Physical, Engineering and Combat tracks.
– For this trophy you must follow the path of rescuing Little Sisters.  Tennebaum will give you a gift for every 3 Little Sisters you rescue.  There are also ones you must invent and ones you must buy at the Gatherer’s Garden.

Historian (Silver) – Find every audio diary.
– There are 102 audio diaries in the game.  I will only point out the ones that you will not be able to back-track to.  There are 3 and here are the locations:

  • Welcome to Rapture – On the table before entering the bathroom.
  • Welcome to Rapture – In the bathroom, through the right entrance.
  • Rapture Control – Very beginning of the level on the table to the left.  Do not enter the ‘Would You Kindly Room’ through the vent without it!

Seriously Good At This (Bronze) – The player has completed the game on the Hard difficulty setting.
– See I Choose The Impossible.

Dealt with every Little Sister (Bronze): The player has either Harvested or Rescued every possible Little Sister.
– This will unlock after harvesting/rescuing your last Little Sister.  In each level if you press Pause you will see how many Little Sisters are in the map.  Make sure you get them all or you will be back-tracking.

Lucky Winner (Bronze) – Hit the jackpot at a slot machine.
– In the beginning of ‘Fort Frolic’ there will be slot machines by the Bathysphere.  Try your luck at the machines and keep trying till you run out of money.  If you run out of money re-load your game and try again.

[Hidden] Irony (Bronze) – The player has taken a picture of Sander Cohen’s corpse.
– See Found Cohen’s Room.

[Hidden] Found Cohen’s Room (Bronze): The player has entered Sander Cohen’s personal quarters.
– After you finish his masterpiece in Fort Frolic…Do Not Kill Him! You will meet up with him again in ‘Olympus Heights’.  His home is to the right of the elevator in the main courtyard.  When you enter his living quarters there will be Splicers dancing by the piano.  Kill them and he will come running downstairs from his room.  Kill him, take a picture, and run up to his room for both Found Cohen’s Room and Irony.

Toaster in the Tub (Bronze) – The player has shocked an enemy in the water.
– In Welcome to Rapture Atlas will tell you to shock some Splicers in the water.  The trophy is yours.

Brass Balls (Gold) – Complete the game on Hard difficulty without using a Vita-Chamber.
– See I Choose The Impossible.

A Man Chooses (Gold) – Complete the game on Survivor difficulty.
– See I Choose The Impossible.

I Chose the Impossible (Gold) – Complete the game on Survivor difficulty without using a Vita-chamber.
– Completing the game on Survivor with Vita-Chambers off will unlock all difficulty related trophies.  Start a new game on Survivor.  Before you get to a Vita-Chamber, be sure to enter the options and turn them off.  You can do this without turning them off, just make sure you do not die.  Survivor difficulty is pretty tough, and your wrench’s damage is pretty much zero.  So here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Save All The Time!  See a Big Daddy, save.  Boss fight coming, save.  Difficult area completed, save.  Haven’t saved in a while, save!
  • Loot Everywhere…if you invent items it will help save some cash.
  • Research as much as possible to increase your damage done to enemies.
  • Rescue all Little Sisters.  This will net you some awesome Tonics and Plasmids.  Hypnotize Big Daddy is your friend in Survivor.
  • Crossbow Headshots will kill most Splicers in one shot, combine it with Natural Camouflage to take your time and line up your shots.
  • Use any means possible…whether that means using Telekinesis to pick up a dead Splicer and throwing it at another or using a Target Dummy.
