Supersymmetry is one of the most motivated theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. It explains the mass of the observed Higgs boson and provides a Dark Matter candidate among other attractive features. A striking prediction of Supersymmetry is the existence of a new particle for each Standard Model one. I will highlight results of the extensive program of the ATLAS Collaboration searching for supersymmetric particles with the Run 1 data of 2012 and show the discovery potential of Run 2 starting in the summer of 2015.
