Well-Rounded Achievement Guide
NOTE: To unlock this achievement, kill one enemy with each type of Vigor. It isn’t so hard, but just so you don’t miss any of them in the campaign, you’ll find their locations below.
- Possession: The first Vigor is found near the exit to the Fair. You can acquire it from a store to the left of a ticket vendor leading into the Raffle Park.
- Devil’s Kiss: This Vigor can first be found after defeating a Fireman Heavy-Hitter after the Raffle encounter. Look near the body once one is defeated.
- Murder of Crows: Grab this Vigor in the Fraternal Order of the Raven building, after fighting the hooded enemies in the strange chapel. The Vigor is on the alter near the huge mural of George Washington.
- Bucking Bronco: On the way to the Hall of Heroes, you’ll need to pass through a ticket station before reaching the pavilion leading to the gondola. Before exiting the building, the Vigor should be found just as you leave the larger ticket chamber.
- Shock Jockey: This can’t be missed, you’ll have to take it off Slate in the Hall of Heroes to continue the story.
- Charge: On the way to the Shantytown, it can be found inside a small office behind a locked gate. On your way back to the Plaza of Zeal after leaving the Police Impound, the gate will be open.
- Undertow: Inside the Office of Jeremiah Fink, check behind the desk before leaving through the exit.
- Return to Sender: After leaving the Port and entering a new interior area, you’ll soon come across a locked door leading into the Salty Oyster Bar. To get this final Vigor, you’ll need to hit the secret button. This button will only appear after opening the lock into Founder’s Books, found near the exit to the area. Inside, listen to the Voxophone revealing the secret button, then backtrack to press it. The Vigor is on a table inside.
