I have noticed many people here have the problem of attacking a Big Daddy first. They feel guilty that they are the bad ones, and poor metal fellows perish on their whim. I discovered a way to make a BD attack you first.
Unequip Natural Camouflage tonic (invisibility prevents this from working).
Find a BD with a LS and apporach the LS. The BD will make a roaring noise, start spinning his drill/harpoon (for Bouncers) and take a defensive stance with LS hidden beneath.
After a little time, the BD will move closer to you and give you a hard tug, then go back to the LS. Again, move closer to him.
Repeat this, and if you will not run away after the third tug, the BD's portholes will turn red and he will start attacking you, the LS shouting "Kill him!" and the like. When you defeat him (in self-defence, of course), you proceed to save the poor lonely LS.
This will deny you the moment of surprise and the optimal choice of battleground, but for moral freaks this is the only way.

Does the big daddy attack you cause he feels threatened. Wouldn't that be self defense (like an animals mother).
Of course, but to make an precise observation, he is the first to pull the trigger Provoking does not make a reason for attacking.
Heh. If you lived in a Dysutopia like that, I'm sure you'd shoot first and ask questions later.
Maybe some of those Splicers you killed, had good intentions?
i dunno...this is just MY OPINION...but i dont think splicers running at you throwing molotiv coctails, hooks, and flaming fireballs seems like a friendly greeting, again, this is just me, i might be wrong, but i dont take flaming fireballs as a "welcome to rapture"
Yeah. But what about the ones you surprise? I'm sure you've killed at least one before it started a fight.
