I saved two little sisters. A big daddy hurt me alot when I fought it. Surely there is better ways to deal with them.

I dunno how to get more slots for upgrades.

Weapon upgrades come from one time only weapon upgrade machines throughout the levels... saving sisters gives you less adam but save 3 in a row and you get a gift which is way better than increased Adam...

To get more plasmid slots, you have to buy them with Adam from a gathering garden...

There are passive tonics and stuff but I won't spoil anything story related

All I basically did was spam a shotgun and use 8 health packs. Didn't seem so fun.

Ohhhhh well that makes sense... when you unlock other tonics for your 3 other tonic trees then you'll get the option to add more plasmid slots... I also think you should get the winter one at the earliest possible convenience... helps hacking and killing enemies

Well what is sucking is I have to keep to keep tk and incinerate on to open up areas so no electroshock to stun things to hack them.

Health upgrades are in different tonic trees... physical, hacking etc etc... enrage is absolutely useless imo... evo link is pretty decent... they don't add slots you purchase slots at the gatherers garden... some tonics you pick up go into different trees... it's quite obvious which ones go where

Well, I mean, I get it.

Like one has less physical damage taken, more wrench strength, shock when damage taken. Etc. I can only equip two.

Why did you replace shock? It's like really good for stunning foes and opening doors... tk is fine but it's more better down the line... if you want to change your setup then go to a gene swap bank... its the golden storage thing

I can't get to areas without tk. Needed it to grab a key and to throw a grenade. I actually have another door I still haven't opened without it before I left at the beginning of the level.

Yes for now... down the line you can purchase up to 6 slots for each tree... just pick what you need for now and go for it until you get more slots... that's when you get to experiment and stuff... also take photos of the enemies... ITS REALLY GOOD I can't stress the point enough

Also use the special ammo when you need it... it's hard to come by and you only get the maximum of $500 dollars... that's the cap so don't bother saving up

Ohh well then as soon as you head into neptunes bounty... you'll come across the gene swap bank and gartherers garden where you can buy more slots... also the elevators are called bathyspheres... is this your first time playing bioshock?

Figures... it's a pretty swell game... it's very philosophical game tbh... I liked and enjoyed the shooting too... although it's more survival horror friendly than shooter friendly... the hacking is fine and the puzzles are not that hard to solve... the plasmids are hit or miss depending on what you like and how you play... the ammo is scarce and not as plentiful as other games which means you got to think before you do stuff and work around limited ammo... such as letting splicers damage up a big daddy so you can go in for the kill...

I am at Arcadia. I got the camera. Maxed out leadsplitter and the melee guys. Seems easy to abuse.

I saw a big daddy escorting a little sister. It killed me. However when I went back the big daddy wasn't with the little sister. Said there was like 2 little sisters in Arcadia and I saw zero. I guess I need to go back there.

Yeah, the camera makes enemies more manageable. It doesn't make them harmless, though, so feel free to max out anyone and everyone who poses a threat.

Well, I think maxing them gives you achievements so I will be doing so if I can manage to.

I got a few more plasmid slots and stuff.

- Electric Shock and TK are the only two Plasmids you need to be effective at combat. TK is free and doesn't need upgrading, and you should upgrade Electric as soon as it's available.

- Some people don't realize you can take pictures of Little Sisters. They give good bonuses, though not as good as Big Daddy's.

- Maxing your Big Daddy pics and other melee tonics makes a wrench-only run (with Plasmids) very, very possible. It's also fun.

- The "Rosie" Big Daddy (which you've seen at Arcadia) is the most important enemy to max out with the camera. It gives the single best bonus.

- There's an easy way to kill Big Daddies if you're having trouble...

Position a corpse in front of a security camera (and clear all other corpses from a Big Daddy's path). It will walk with the Little Sister to the first available corpse, which will be the one you've strategically set up. When it's there, hit him with the "Security Bullseye" Plasmid, and the drones will attack him for you. Two hits of Security Bullseye and he's dead.

I saw one on steps going up. He was turned around looking at the wall and I unleashed an entire clip of machine bullets into him before he event reacted. That one died pretty easy. Lol
