Ohh, lesse now...
- Use hacked security systems. For example, hack a couple of bots and a camera, then attack the Big Daddy and lead him past the camera. He'll end up having to fend off about four bots as well as you. Turrets are good as well, although he will junk them pretty quickly.
- Don't be afraid to gobble down health kits like popcorn.
- Use the telekinesis plasmid to hurl explosive objects at him. It'll do a fair whack of damage.
- Use electric ammo. Especially if you can lure him into water. Early on the electric buck will be your best bet. Later on (if you want to be really
cheap) you get a flamethrower that can spray electric gel.
- If you don't have electric ammo (or money to buy some) then use armour piercing rounds.
- Electrobolt isn't much use against Big Daddies unless they are standing in water. They take bugger all damage and the stun only lasts for about half a second.
- Don't try to melee him. Just don't. It's like trying to melee a Krogan.
- Don't use enrage on him. He will kill everything in sight. Then come for you.
- When up against bouncers (the ones with the drills) keep your distance. Try to keep solid cover between you and him. Use staircases and balconies to your advantage. If he charges, then sidestep... fast.
- Rosies (the ones with rivet guns) will throw proximity mines at you. You can catch them out of the air with telekinesis and throw them back. Alternatively you can wait for him to stand near his own mine then shoot the mine.
- If you want to get really fancy you can get them into fights with splicers. He'll kill them, but take some damage in the process and he won't get pissed at you.
- Oh, and there's not really any point in attacking a Big Daddy unless he has a little sister with him.
