No, but it is possible the Big Daddy wasn't protecting any Little Sister. Big Daddies roam Rapture and get Little Sisters from the vents, but you can kill them before they are protecting any of them. If he was protecting one, she should stay near the deceased Big Daddy, they cannot die nor be taken by any other character.

In the Store page of every Steam Game you can check that this symbol is available. Controller enabled Usually in all recent games (2-3 years), if a controller is enabled, there are high possibility that Microsoft XBox 360 works and is well supported. But to be sure I always suggest to take a look to that game specific forum. Most of times there are ...

      Try following the big daddy around for a bit before attacking him. In the first BioShock, he'll eventually go up to a vent and pound on the wall. If a Little Sister climbs out, you're in luck! If not, then don't bother killing him: Not all Big Daddies escort Little Sisters (These are the ones you should hypnotize to help you!). ...

An xbox controller can be used on a PC, but it really depends on the game whether it's supported or not. Unfortunally, Bioshock 2 does not support it. See here: I talked to the dev team about controller support for BioShock 2, and I want to let you know that we won’t be adding this into the game in a patch. The decision not to support the controller was ...

As both Jason and Joshua commented, there is no penalty to dying in bioshock 2. It kinda ruins the feel of the game but when necessary it is great to have to save a health kit as you referenced. If you need more information I'm sure I could dig up some other locations that have information on this for you to read through.

Yes, I'd say from a story perspective, you really should play BioShock 1 first. There are several recurring themes between the two games, and much of the exposition and explanation is contained in the first game. You won't just miss secondary elements and little bits of plot and sidequest significance - you'll be missing out on a large chunk of the ...

You can't change the order of the weapons, but if you hold the right bumper you'll see a radial menu of all of your weapons. Just tilt your left stick towards the one you want to select it immediately. The left bumper will also bring up a plasmid radial. Unfortunately, you can't rearrange the weapons/plasmids in the radial either.

From what I known from playing Bioshock 2 as stealthy as possible: You will get sneak bonus if you manage to kill the enemy unalarmed (which are unseen, quietly, no bell alert ringing etc) Enemy will react to sound, especially gunshots and bell alert. But before they can hunt you down, they must seek you first Different surface will produce different level ...

Sisters and daddies are indeed people, despite their monstrous appearance. However, they aren't necessarily related by blood or otherwise. Little sisters are little girls who have been implanted with a parasite that uses blood to produce Adam. Little sisters collect and drink the blood of corpses to feed those parasites. Big daddies are men, who have been ...

You can use ANY controller that works on a PC to play ANY game you want. Just get yourself a key mapping program. Xbox 360 controller, PS3 dualshock, any 3rd party gamepad, etc. If your computer recognizes input from it, you can use it in games. I do it all the time bc I'm disabled and not physically able to use a mouse and keyboard at the same time. ...

Some games are listed on their product page as supporting controllers. For most modern games, this includes the Xbox 360 controller. For games that don't, you can use controller mapping software to translate your controller to keyboard/mouse commands. For example: http://pinnaclegameprofiler.com/

You do get more ADAM if you harvest any given sister. However, there are long term benefits to saving at least some of them. The ADAM gained from the bodies is independent of whether you harvest or save the little sisters. You can always harvest them after they've sucked out the ADAM. So that way you get at least 240 ADAM per sister. On the other hand, like ...

I'm not positive about charmed enemies, but I can tell you that you will take damage from hacked turrets. Hacked security bots will usually not be a problem, as they will fly overhead and move around in such a way as to get a direct line of attack. Hacked turrets will fire as long as there's something hostile in their radar, even if you're in the way. (I ...

The main differences are in enemy health/accuracy/agility, amount of loot found and the cost of EVE for using Plasmids. Medium is essentially a 'normal mode' since enemy stats are at 100% there. Easy is a huge step down from Medium in difficulty for some reason. Enemies drop 60% of their health and 82.5% of their damage on Easy, compared to Medium! ...

As far as I can remember from my game, the Brutes stop spawning when you reach and start respawning (huge loads of them) at the very last level of the game, so you better complete the research before you reach that level! I'm sorry I could not provide a valid linkable source for this, but there seems to be none around except forums where people posts ...

Here you can see on the map corpses marked with 11 and 15. You can also see the 2nd corpse in this video,however to see how to get there you should check the previous parts of the video. ...

I failed to finish researching Brute Splicers by a few points, before they stopped appearing. From my experience, they stop appearing at Dionysus Park (the sixth level). So make sure to fully research them before leaving Siren Alley (the fifth level), if you want to get the research rewards, including the Armored Shell 2 gene tonic at an earlier part of the ...

I ran into this problem on my first playthrough as well: the game adds the plasmids to a soft list ( I think ) - to move a plasmid further left, you must remove those plasmids ahead of it. Not sure that's entirely clear. In this instance, you will have to remove Incinerate!, Security Command 2, and Scout (switch them around with something you know you'll ...

In pauper's drop, take full advantage of the free drill fuel in the medical pavillion. Where the hotel collapses. Grab the research camera and find a few brute splicers to kill. Do not use the camera to complete the research. If your drill is fuel you should be able to kill it before it is empty. Return to the medical pavillon and rinse and repeat.

I remember in a specific sequence when I had to guard the Little Sister for a while, about 10-20 splicers came through and most of them turned into lockboxes over time. The PC I played the game on at the time was above the system requirements and would have no problem with the multiple corpses, so I doubt it's actually optimised per-system. However, I do ...

I consider this a bug in both Bioshock 1 & 2. But there is a workaround which seems to work --- at least it worked so far for me in Bioshock 2 (which I haven't completed, yet). It was my experience in Bioshock 1 that the workaround stopped working reliably when you had too many plasmid slots, so YMMV. You need at least one plasmid (call it X) more than ...

In addition to (and contrary to some points of) this other answer, and from my experience: Enemies will only react to weapon sounds if you are near them. I have used the spear gun from a far location and occasionally missed enemies by a few inches and hit wall or objects near the enemy. They never noticed that they're being shot at (probably because of the ...

@Keaanu is wrong in his answer. In Bioshock 2, if you have a little sister that you have already adopted. You can't harvest/adopt another one. I accidentally killed a big daddy with a little sister, and I can't pick her up. So, eventually I left to gather enough adam for her. After that I chased another one to get the last little sister, I saw him ...
