    |  [INTR]                      Introduction                                  |
    Welcome to my FAQ. This is my first FAQ, and I didn't want to embark on such a
    long quest as to conquer a full fledged walkthrough. This guide covers Bioshock
    Infinite, the third game in the Bioshock trilogy, following Bioshock 2. I am a
    big fan of both, and I thoroughly enjoyed the games that came out before those
    two, System Shock 1 and 2. The purpose of this guide is to help all you
    achievement hunters out there who are  interested in netting a 1000g for this
    game. This is a simple game to ace, except for  two achievements which will
    consume most of your efforts. Thank you for reading this, I hope that this faq
    helps you.
    |  [OVRV]                    Achievement Overview                            |
    Number of Achievements: 50 (For now)
    Achievement Difficulty: (from 1 - 10, 10 being the hardest) 5
    Least amount of playthroughs to get all Achievements: 1 (If you really try),
    probably 2
    Number of Missable Achievements: 0 (they carry over through checkpoint select)
    Story Related Achievements: 10 - 15 (depending on difficulty)
    Details: At the time of this writing, none of the dlc's have come out.
    Generally, each dlc includes 10 new achievements worth 200g. I don't know what
    the case will be with this game, but I do know that I will be covering those
    when they come out. I will make this faq 99% spoiler free, covering the story
    related achievements last, and I will also have to include spoilers in the
    ending analyzation (obviously). If there happens to be a spoiler in a
    particular section, I will warn you with something like *SPOILER*.

    The bulk of this faq, I will now list every achievement and how to unlock it.
    First, I will create an example of an achievement so you understand how this
    section will work.
    Achievement: This is the name of the achievement
    In - Game description: What the description of the achievement in game is
    What you have to do: Sometimes the description in game is wonky, here I will
    Gamerscore: How much gamerscore this achievement is worth
    Guide: Here I will tell you how to earn the achievement, giving you the area
    where you can unlock it and giving you tips on how to unlock this achievement
    Lets get started.
    Achievement: Tin Soldier
    In - Game description: Completed the game on Easy difficulty or above
    What you have to do: Simply finish the game on easy difficulty.
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide:  When you start the game, select easy difficulty. When you complete
    the final battle, this achievement will unlock.
    Achievement: Saw the Elephant
    In - Game description: Completed the game on Normal difficulty or above
    What you have to do: Simply finish the game on normal difficulty.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: When you start the game, select Normal. When you complete the final
    battle, you will unlock this achievement.
    Achievement: Stone Cold Pinkerton
    In - Game description: Completed the game on Hard difficulty or above.
    What you have to do: Simply finish the game on hard difficulty.
    Gamerscore: 50g
    Guide: When you start the game, select Hard. When you complete the final
    battle, you will unlock this achievement.
    Achievement: Auld Lang Syne
    In - Game description: Completed the game on 1999 mode.
    What you have to do: You have to finish the game on 1999 mode to unlock this.
    Gamerscore: 75g
    Guide: There are two ways that you can go about unlocking 1999 mode. The first,
    recommended way is to complete the game. When you finish the game on any
    difficulty, you will unlock 1999 mode, and you will have experience with the
    game in order to simplify your run. The second, quicker way is to input the
    konami code at the title screen.
    I received an email from Valeska stating that the cheat will need to be
    inputted after the screen with Bioshock Infinite on it, with Press Start
    underneath. Input the code on the second screen. Thanks Valeska!
    The konami code on xbox is:
    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.
    The code on playstation is:
    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, O.
    Anyways, complete the game on this difficult difficulty(!) and this hefty
    achievement will pop. (For tips and hints on how to deal with 1999 mode, please
    visit this ['99T] section of the FAQ.) Also, if you play on this mode and beat
    the game, you get all achievements for easier difficulties as well.
    Achievement: Should Auld Acquaintance
    In - Game description: Unlocked 1999 mode.
    What you have to do: Unlock 1999 mode.
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide: There are two ways that you can go about unlocking 1999 mode. The first,
    recommended way is to complete the game. When you finish the game on any
    difficulty, you will unlock 1999 mode, and you will have experience with the
    game in order to simplify your run. The second, quicker way is to input the
    konami code at the title screen.
    I received an email from Valeska stating that the cheat will need to be
    inputted after the screen with Bioshock Infinite on it, with Press Start
    underneath. Input the code on the second screen. Thanks Valeska!
    The konami code on xbox is:
    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.
    The code on playstation is:
    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, O.
    Achievement: Industrial Accident
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies with a Sky-Hook Execution.
    What you have to do: Go into the brutal execution animation 20 times.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: If you get an enemies health down low enough, a skull appears above the
    enemies head. Click and hold the right stick in order to go into an animation
    where you execute the enemy. Sometimes, this skill could be rather hard to
    see, so make sure that during your melee you are always holding the right
    stick. Repeat this 20 times in order to unlock this achievement.
    Achievement: Aerial Assassin
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies with a Sky-Line Strike.
    What you have to do: Go into the Sky-Line Strike animation 20 times(if you kill
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: Jump onto a skyline. Keep swinging until you get close to enemies, and
    slow down by pulling back on your control stick. If you look at an enemy, then
    an "A" will appear above their head. Press A. You should be flying towards
    them at a rapid pace, and when you get close, you strike them with your
    Sky-Hook. If you kill the enemy (because bigger enemies won't be insta-killed),
    then you did it! Now just do this twenty more times.
    Achievement: A Real Pistol
    In - Game description: Killed 25 enemies with the Broadsider Pistol
    What you have to do: Pick up a pistol and kill people with it.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: The moment you get the pistol at the raffle, kill people with it. This
    gun is outclassed by literally every single other gun in the game, and as such
    you should get this achievement over as soon as possible.
    Achievement: Passionately Reciprocated
    In - Game description: Killed 150 enemies with the Founder Triple R Machine Gun
    or Vox Repeater.
    What you have to do: Pick up either of these two machine guns and use them to
    kill 150 enemies.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: Find one of these guns and use them to kill 150 enemies. Your choice
    is which one you should carry. The Founder Triple R Machine gun has more ammo,
    but it does less damage. The Vox repeater, on the other hand, has less ammo,
    but it can kill people faster due to its higher damage.
    Achievement: Street Sweeper
    In - Game description: Killed 50 enemies with the Founder China Broom Shotgun
    or the Vox Heater.
    What you have to do: Pick up either of these two shotguns and use them to kill
    50 enemies.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: I find the shotgun to be much easier to use for this one. You find the
    China Broom way to late into the game, and it only has 10 shots max. Anyways,
    use the shotgun to kill 50 enemies and this achievement will pop.
    Achievement: Big Game Hunter
    In - Game description: Killed 100 enemies with the Founder Huntsman Carbine or
    the Vox Burstgun.
    What you have to do: Kill 100 enemies with either of these two weapons.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: Pick up either of these two guns and use them to kill 100 enemies. I
    believe that the Huntsman Carbine is much better for this achievement because
    it has more range. The Vox Burstgun is 3 round burst, and as such it is harder
    to hit distant targets. The carbine doesn't suffer this range loss, and can be
    used both in close range and long.
    Achievement: Loose Cannon
    In - Game description: Killed 25 enemies with the Paddywhacker Hand Cannon.
    What you have to do: Pick up the hand cannon and kill 25 people with it.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: I personally don't like the hand cannon, but one of the areas that you
    find it in (Good Time Club) is fairly close quarters and you should use it as
    much as you can in this area. Once you kill 25 enemies, this achievement will
    Achievement: On a Clear Day...
    In - Game description: Killed 30 enemies with the Bird's Eye Sniper Rifle.
    What you have to do: Put 30 enemies out of their misery by sniping them.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: Find a sniper rifle. This achievement is not generally hard to get, but
    if you are not the best sniper then find a high perched spot away from all the
    action, and this will give you time to line up your shots. Then, kill 30
    Achievement: Here Little Piggy
    In - Game description: Killed 30 enemies with the Founder Pig Volley Gun or Vox
    Hail Fire.
    What you have to do: Have 30 enemies meet their demise by using either of these
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: Both of these guns are similar, so I don't think that either one is
    easier to use than the other. So, find either of these weapons and fire off
    some rounds on enemies. When you kill 30, this achievement will pop.
    Achievement: Master of Pyrotechnics
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies with the Barnstormer RPG.
    What you have to do: Pick up an RPG and blow 'em to smithereens.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: This achievement is easily unlock at
    The hall of heroes, where you unlock shock jockey.
    In this area, there are enough enemies to kill with the RPG to net you this
    achievement, and you can ditch this gun after this. Of course, you could also
    just find one lying around in the heat of battle and use it to kill people.
    Kill 20 and this achievement is yours.
    Achievement: Seasoned to Taste
    In - Game description: Killed 30 enemies with the Peppermill Crank Gun.
    What you have to do: Pick up this bad boy and unleash its insides on 30 unlucky
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: The only way to find a Crank Gun is to loot a patriot, or have Elizabeth
    open a tear which will give you a crank gun. Thus, whenever you kill a patriot,
    pick up its crank gun and kill people with it, and when you run out of ammo,
    ditch it. There are more than enough patriots to get crank guns, so as long as
    your accuracy doesn't suck too bad, you should be able to get this achievement.
    Just kill 30 people with it.
    Achievement: Well Rounded
    In - Game description: Used all 8 Vigors against enemies.
    What you have to do: Find and use every vigor against an enemy. (Actually hit
    an enemy)
    Gamerscore: 10g (Finally! Something not worth 5g!)
    Guide: This one could be hard. Sadly, some of the vigors are missable. Let's
    list'em off.
    Bucking Bronco: Can't miss it, on path
    Devil's Kiss: Can't miss it, on path
    Possession: Can't miss it, have to pick it up to progress
    Murder of Crows: You COULD miss it, if you try. It's right after the first
    crow-man fight.
    Shock Jockey: Can't miss it, needed to progress in main story
    Charge: MISSABLE:
    After you open the tear without Chen Lins tools, you have to return to his
    workshop. After the first area is completed, exit through the door. In this
    area, there will be glass right in front of you. Walk around it, and look in
    the display case. There, you will find Charge.
    Undertow: Can't miss it, on path
    Return to sender: Two ways you can get it.
    First: At one point, closer to the end of the game, you will reach the Salty
    Oyster pub. Remember where this area is. Now, go on with your quest until you
    reach an optional toy store, which you can miss. Elizabeth will warn you
    however, so be aware. Enter the toy store, and go to the lower floor. Scout
    around, and you should find a Voxophone which will give you an optional side
    quest to access a hidden door. Return to the Salty Oyster. Look on the left and
    you will see a cash register. Walk up to it, and on the left you will see a
    hidden button, which will open a door. In that door is Return to sender.
    Second: When you go to Comstock House, one of the paths will have a vial on the
    right with Return to Sender in it. (This way is far easier, but the other way
    will net you an infusion upgrade.)
    Use each of these on an enemy and this achievement will pop.
    Achievement: Combination Shock
    In - Game description: Performed all 8 of the Vigor combinations.
    What you have to do: There are 8 combinations with vigors. Do all of them.
    Gamerscore: 50g
    Guide: You don't need Return to sender for this. There are 8 combinations that
    you can do with vigors. Let's see all of'em:
    Possession and Shock Jockey
    Possession and Devil's Kiss
    Devil's Kiss and Charge
    Murder of Crows and Devil's Kiss
    Murder of Crows and Shock Jockey
    Bucking Bronco and Devil's Kiss
    Bucking Bronco and Charge
    Undertow and Shock Jockey
    Go down the list doing each of the combinations. In order to do a combination,
    use one vigor, and then switch and use the other. Some combinations are hard to
    do. Here they are:
    Bucking Bronco and Devil's Kiss
    This one may be hard to pull off because the enemy is in the air and you need
    to hit them with devils kiss. To make this easier, launch the enemy into the
    air and create a Devil's Kiss trap right below them.
    Undertow and Shock Jockey
    You have to reel the enemy in with a charged Undertow in order for this
    combination to work.
    Bucking Bronco and Charge
    You have to hit the enemy with charge while they are floating with Bucking
    You will be told when you do a combination for the first time, and if the
    achievement doesn't unlock, then go through the list again.
    Achievement: Vigorous Opposition
    In - Game description: Killed 75 enemies with a Vigor or while they are under
    the effects of a vigor.
    What you have to do: Kill 75 people with vigors or kill them during the effect
    of a vigor.
    Gamerscore: 50g
    Guide: This game has been (sorry for the term) "Call of Dutyified," and as
    such, you can beat the game without vigors. To get this achievement, USE YOUR
    VIGORS! Start as early as possible, and hit every enemy you see with a vigor if
    you have salts to spare. This is not a hard achievement, as it should come
    naturally if you play the game as it was intended.
    Achievement: More for Your Money
    In - Game description: Lured 3 enemies into a single Vigor trap 5 times.
    What you have to do: Put down a vigor trap and have it effect 3 people. Do this
    5 times.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: This should come to you if you use traps often, but if not, then don't
    fret. I find that murder of crows is easiest to use as it has the most AOE
    range and as thus it is easier to hit 3 enemies at once. As you progress
    through the story, there should be clusters of enemies that you can use a trap
    on. Because you only have to get 3 enemies and you only have to do it 5 times
    means that this isn't a difficult achievement to get. A SUPER easy way to do
    this is to load up CH 19 where you're in the good time club, about to fight the
    first wave of enemies. Before they come out, head up to the curtain place a
    vigor trap right there. About 8 enemies come out of this one door, and you can
    get all 8 with one well placed vigor trap!
    Achievement: Mind Over Matter
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies using possessed machines.
    What you have to do: Possess any turret, and have it kill 20 enemies while
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide: This is a difficult achievement. This is much easier on easy(!). When
    you find a turret with enemies around it, take cover. Find a piece of cover
    that will allow you to shoot the enemies but without the turret shooting you.
    Now, weaken the enemies as much as possible, but without killing them. Possess
    the turret! It will tear everything apart as you sit back and watch while
    gathering kills for your achievement. Repeat this until the possessed machine
    kills 20 people and you have yourself an achievement!
    Achievement: Tear'em a New One
    In - Game description: Opened 30 tears.
    What you have to do: Have Elizabeth open 30 different tears.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: This is a very simple achievement as long as you remember to open every
    single tear that you come by. There are over 45 tears in the game, and you have
    to get 30 of them. The tears all have to be DIFFERENT. The tears that you open
    to progress in the story count as well. Overall, not a hard achievement.
    Achievement: Strange Bedfellows
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies using allies brought in through a
    What you have to do: Have Elizabeth open a tear that brings in an automatic
    turret. It has to kill 20 enemies.
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide: This achievement is almost identical to the Mind Over Matter
    achievement, except you don't need any salts. However, you can only do this
    achievement if the corresponding tear is available to use. So, get enemies down
    to very low health, and then open a tear that will kill them. Do this to 20
    enemies and the achievement is yours!
    Achievement: On the Fly
    In - Game description: Killed 30 enemies while riding a skyline.
    What you have to do: Get on a skyline and kill 30 enemies.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: First, find a skyline and hook up to it. Then, find enemies and kill 30
    of them while riding the skyline. This is easier if you slow down as much as
    you can, and this is much easier if you have the THROTTLE CONTROL gear. Bata-
    bing, Bata-bang.
    Achievement: Bolt From the Blue
    In - Game description: Killed 5 enemies with a headshot while riding a skyline.
    What you have to do: Get a headshot 5 times on a skyline.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: This is the most pointless achievement in the game. You can get it the
    instant that you have access to skylines. Just hook yourself up, then slow down
    as much as possible. The enemies won't even move, making this achievement even
    easier. Just do this and get it over with, I'm mad that this one even exists.
    Achievement: Hazard Pay
    In - Game description: Killed 10 enemies by utilizing environmental hazards.
    What you have to do: Use environmental hazards to kill 10 enemies.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: What? Environmental hazards? Where? I thought this during my first
    playthrough. It turns out that there are, *VERY RARELY*, tears and gas leaks
    that you can open or set on fire to kill enemies. Whenever you see a tesla
    coil, these actually fry enemies, and it counts as an environmental hazard.
    Also, there are oil leaks which are scattered around but hard to find. You can
    light enemies on fire with this leak. Finally, there are tears which open up
    water puddles. Have an enemy stand in the water puddle and electrocute it. Just
    like in Bioshock 1!
    Achievement: Bon Voyage
    In - Game description: Killed 20 enemies by knocking them off Columbia.
    What you have to do: Knock 20 unlucky beings off of the wondrous Columbia.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: This is my favorite achievement in the game. This is one hard nut to
    crack if you aren't sure how to do it, mostly because it's very difficult to
    make somebody fall of by using only bucking bronco on them. The way you do
    this, is by using bucking bronco, and then charging into the enemy while they
    are in the air. This is easiest at the final battle. Also, make sure you are
    attacking heavy hitter (bigger) enemies, or you will kill them with charge.
    Achievement: Skeet Shoot
    In - Game description: Killed 5 enemies while they are falling.
    What you have to do: End 5 people's lives by killing them while they fall.
    Gamerscore: 25g
    Guide: This is a difficult achievement because of the timing required. Use
    bucking bronco on an enemy, and wait for them to fall down by watching them
    with a shotgun. The *INSTANT* they pop out of bucking bronco, unload a round of
    the shotgun into their gut.
    Odstrings submitted an alternate method to unlocking this achievement:
    The skeet shoot achievement can easily be obtained with shock jockey and
    undertow. It works best on normal soldiers. In other words, undertow lifts
    them up into the air, and you can kill them this way.
    Do this 5 times and the achievement is yours.
    Achievement: Lost Weekend
    In - Game description: Killed 5 enemies while you are drunk.
    What you have to do: While you are drunk, use up all the stupidity in your
    brain and shoot a gun.

    Guide: I am almost positive that the bar in Shantytown is the best place for
    this. Get into the bar and drink all their alcohol. There are exactly 5 enemies
    in there which you can kill, so kill them an this achievement will pop.
    Achievement: David and Goliath
    In - Game description: Killed 20 "Heavy Hitter" enemies.
    What you have to do: Kill 20 Crow Masters, Handymen, Sirens, Patriots or
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide: You simply cannot miss this. You have to fight multiple heavy hitters
    throughout the story, so you can't miss this.
    Achievement: Heartbreaker
    In - Game description: Killed a Handyman by only shooting his heart.
    What you have to do: Only shoot a Handyman in the heart, and kill him.
    Gamerscore: 50g
    Guide: This is by far the hardest non completionist achievement in the entire
    game. This will take you many tries. First off, set the difficulty to easy.
    Next, you can approach this achievement one of 2 ways:
    1. The legit way: Load up the first Chen Lin checkpoint (CH18). When you leave
    his  workshop, take a left and then a right into a clock shop area. There will
    be a sniper there. Pick it up, and upgrade it TO THE MAX using the vending
    machine. Now, leave the area. Take a left and walk forth until the Handyman
    spawns. This is your first chance! Zoom in with the rifle, and unload a shot
    into his heart while he stops moving! Now, run away. Every time that he smashes
    the ground, he will linger for a second, cough, and cover his heart. The second
    his hand moves away from his heart, shoot him. He will take about 7 bullets to
    down on easy. Dang. (You can also do this with the hand cannon, but it would
    require you to stand closer to him as it has a bit of spread.) If you fail
    to hit him in the heart or you think you did(as there is no indication whether
    you did), then simply reload your checkpoint.
    2. Glitch: Get the sniper and upgrade it, like in the first option. Then,
    summon the Handyman, and run into the back right area, to the right of the Good
    Time Club. There will be a freight hook, so launch up to that. Then, jump to
    the roof. Run to the end, and do a complicated jump to the barrels in the back.
    Shoot your gun so the Handyman notices you again. Now, move as far right as
    possible. The Handyman should get glitched so that he doesn't move at all, and
    you can shoot him. If this was confusing, then use this video tutorial:
    Anyways. That's it.
    Achievement: Dress for Success
    In - Game description: Equipped a piece of Gear in all four slots.
    What you have to do: Find 4 different body types of gear, and equip them.
    Gamerscore: 5g
    Guide: No wonder this achievement is worth so little, you can't miss it.
    Achievement: Kitted Out
    In - Game description: Fully upgraded one weapon and one Vigor.
    What you have to do: Buy all possible upgrades for one weapon and one vigor.
    Gamerscore: 10g
    Guide: Find a vending machine when you have a lot of money. Don't worry, you
    can reload your checkpoint if you don't want to spend your money. Find the
    pistol upgrades, and buy all of them. Then, find a Vigor machine and buy the
    two cheapest vigor upgrades. (End game vending machines have the most
    upgrades.) The achievement is yours.
    Achievement: Raising the Bar
    In - Game description: Upgraded one attribute to its maximum level.
    What you have to do: Get enough infusion upgrades to maximize any attribute.
    Gamerscore: 10g

    kinetoscopes/Pick 30 different lock/get all voxophones
    Gamerscore: 25g/50g/25g/50g (That's a whopping mother F***ing 150g)
    Guide: Here, I have created a list of all the Voxophone locations. These will
    be in order of appearance, so don?t worry about missing any of these, as they
    are on the way to your objective. After that are the Infusions and the
    Telescopes. Let me quickly point out that you do not have to pick up any of
    these collectibles all in one go, as they will carry over into other
    playthrough. You do, however, need to reach a save point or they won?t be
    saved. This doesn't count for Infusion Upgrades, as you have to collect them
    all in a single playthrough.

    Comstock?s Airship.
    At this point you will unlock the Sightseer Achievement worth 50g.
    Now, I will go through all the infusion upgrades in the game. If you want, you
    can start a new game, or pick up all collectibles in one playthrough.

    Infusion 10
    Before you take off to Paris, this phial is on a desk on the First Lady.

    Infusion 17
    Next to the medical kits on the second floor of the Impound Building, there is
    a phial in an evidence room locked by 5 lockpicks.

    front of the clock tower.
    Infusion 19
    After you get into Prosperity Plaza, there is a locked gate that requires 3
    lockpicks to open. In this area, there is a phial in a bathtub.

    stairs that house the power generators for Elizabeth. Between them, this door
    can be opened with 3 lockpicks. This phial is on the desk.
    At this point you will earn the achievement Infused with Power, for 25g.
    Now, I will cover the equipment and the locations for it, for Dress Fore
    Success, which requires you to equip gear in all four slots. This should come
    through the story anyways, but I will list all the locations and what they do
    if you are having trouble.
    |  [GEAR]                   Gear Locations and Description                   |
    First, I will explain what all of the known gear does.
    Then, I will list the known gear locations. A special note about gear:
    The locations of where the gear appears are always constant, but the actual
    gear that appears is always different. With this knowledge, you can see that it
    is possible to easily exploit what gear you get by reloading checkpoints and
    collecting gear until you get what you want.
    This section is coming soon!

    Guide: Buy everything. This is actually hard to get, but luckily it stacks
    through your playthroughs. There is however, a glitch:
    Spend as much money as you want, then keep reloading the checkpoint. Waddaya
    know. This will actually count towards your progress.

    |   ['99T]                     1999 Tips                                     |
    1999 mode is hard. How do you survive?
    Conserve Money - Don't waste money on vigors you won't use, or weapons upgrades
    you don't
    Upgrade you Shields - Shields replenish, nothing else does. Elizabeth will
    throw you health and salts anyways.
    Beat a Fight, then restart you checkpoint - Now that you know enemy spawns,
    movement, and how you can beat them, don't waste all that money and beat them.
    Search Everywhere - There are almost no resources in 1999, so look everywhere.
    After every fight, you will need to find food.
    Use these vigors:
    Bucking bronco - Immobilizing the enemy for a few seconds while you relocate is
    another way to stay on top of a fight.
    Possession -  You want all the help you can get. Turrets shoot, and distract
    Murder of Crows - Great AOE distraction move, combined with crow nest upgrade
    is deadly.
    Undertow - That sniper keeps getting you? Those rockets annoying you? Pull'em
    in with Undertow, and kill them.
    Weapons - Always use a short/middle range gun and a long range gun
    Conserve Ammo, Scavenge for ammo, and upgrade only the weapons you are using.
    Upgrade gear that will help you the most - Don't use pointless gear (thats a
    Have a plan for Hard enemies -
    Sirens - Shock Jockey + Hiding and popping out
    Patriots - Possess one and they'll kill each other.
    Handymen - Run away, turn around for a second and shoot him in the heart,
    YOU CAN RELOAD YOUR CHECKPOINTS! This makes tons and tons of achievements
    easier. Basically, all the achievement that require you to kill enemies still
    count if your reload the checkpoint, allowing you to farm kills.
