Is it better to harvest or save the little sisters?

  1. Which has the better pay-off, and is there another achievement like the first game for saving all of the little sisters?

Accepted Answer

  1. Harvesting little sisters gives you 160 ADAM(not atom) and 40 from collecting adam from the angels(corpses) i have never saved a little sister but im guessing u get 50-100 adam from saving them. say you harvest after collecting the angels two times thats 240 adam per little sister. from saving you would get about 130-180(matters how much you get from saving little sisters) and there are 2 achievements, one for saving or harvesting every little sister and another to save the 3 people you have a choice to save(slight spoiler not gonna tell you who).

  1. The achievement is for either harvesting or rescuing, so i assume if you start with one choice stick with it. I prefer rescuing them myself because the ending was better when you did so in the first one. though you do not get as much atom, im sure there is a bonus of some sort near the end of the game.

  2. Saving nets you two unique plasmids, which overall make you saving them more worthwhile, though if your going to go the good route, GO IT ALL THE WAY, and that includes keeping the 3 people you have a choice of killing or leaving them be

  3. The achievement for being a savior not only encompasses all the Little Sisters, but also the three people you can either kill or leave alive. (It's not as big a payoff as the old one - 25G vs 100G in BS1).

  4. Well when you rescue them you get the minimum amount of adam. However after a few rescues the little sisters will leave you a present and you will end up having more adam plus some unique plasmids or tonics. If you harvest them then you get the maximum amount of adam at that moment rather than waiting.

  5. You get the achievement even if you mix up your choice of what to do with the little ones. If you save 4 you get a teddy bear, just like in the first game, but it will only have 80 ADAM. You do get 2 plasmids that will make gathering better. Also, killing even one little sister will make Elanor bad at the end which will determine *CENSORED*. Sticking all the way to one path will also decide the ending, mixing it up, and you decide.

  6. Even more, there is a plasmid called "idk father" (fill the idk with a word that i cant remember) that makes the little sister get you more adam from the angels (corpses). Instead of 40 adam each you get 60, so that would make 120+80 = 200 adam instead of the 160 normal. Also after 3 or 4 rescued little sisters you get 250 adam, money and a special plasmid from a present they leave for you.

  7. Saving all the little sisters will give you all the ADAM you need for the most useful plasmids and tonics. Save them and they will leave presents with ADAM, a tonic/plasmid and some cash usually. i saved them all and the ending was much better than if i had harvested any of them
