    Continue taking pictures of Houdini Splicers until you have maxed out the research. You should be able to do this by the end of Arcadia.

    To fill the progress bar as fast as possible, take pictures of the Houdini Splicers when they are fully in the frame, during an action shot, and when they are with other enemies.

    You must fill the research bar FIVE times, with a bonus obtained each time you fill it. The bonuses for the Houdini Splicer are as follows:

    1. Increased damage +
    2. Natural Camouflage (physical tonic)
    3. Increased damage ++
    4. Easier detection during Houdini Splicer's teleport
    5. Increased damage +++

    The Houdini Splicers are the enemies that teleport around and shoot fireballs at you.

    Try and get a picture of them as soon as they come out of a teleport or are shooting a fireball at you or for even bigger bonus try and get pics of them fighting other enemies or even a Big Daddy.

    You will need to fill the research bar 5 times for the achievement (also each time you fill the bar you will get a damage bonus against them).
    Showing both comments.
    Solario32It is 5 times for the achievement.

    Take as many pictures of the Houdini Splicer as possible. Near the end of the game, when you are in Olympus there is an apartment that belongs to Cohen. There will be two Houdini Splicers dancing in the living room and they won't attack you so long as you keep a bit of a distance and don't attack them. So you can stand back and fill your research bar up there.

    Also - if you did NOT kill Cohen earlier,when you attack the Houdini splicers, he will run out of a door and scream at you about it. Kill him, take his picture for the Irony achievement, then go up the stairs into his room for another achievement.
