BioShock is the "genetically enhanced" first person shooter that lets you do things never before possible in the genre: turn everything into a weapon, biologically mod your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade your weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques. You are a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces, and hunted down by genetically modified “splicers” and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same, and no two gamers will play the game the same way.

Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs


Arcadia Hidden Room

As you walk into arcadia there is a broken down elevator with arms holding chains go past that there is a door with a torch lit only one is lit now with the fire plasmid lite the other one and the door will open.


The code to the elevator to access Fontaine's apartment is 5744.

A Little Big Daddy Help

Need a little help getting the little sisters away from the big daddies? First step: Find a security camera. Second: Let it see you and send out a security bot. Third: Hack the bot so its on your side. Fourth: Go for that little sister again with your new helper; see it it goes any better.

Easy Way Of Killing Big Daddy's

Use 2-3 of the crossbow trap ammo on a big daddy, first line up 3 traps spaced apart in a line going across a room and then shoot the big daddy from a distance so he runs towards you. Stand where he will come for you, but go through the traps instead he will die after he hits them.

Elite Rosies And Bouncers

When you reach Sander Cohen's level, instead of regular Bouncers, Elite Bouncers will show up guarding the Little Sisters which means it's going to take more hits to kill them. Stock up on first aid kits and eve hypos and then attack with an Electro Bolt (hopefully you've upgraded it to level 2 or 3). I like to use Insect Swarm as well. While the Big Daddy is distracted hit it with steel-tipped crossbow bolts and frag grenades or Heatseeking RPGs. The Bouncers do more damage to you but are easier to take down. The Rosies are more complicated. If you can get close to a stunned Rosie then hit it with steel- tipped crossbow bolts and exploding buck shotgun rounds. After that, the Little Sisters will be helpless. Armor piercing rounds also help as well.

Defeating Dr. Steinman

Hopefully, by the time you've reached Dr. Steinman you would have upgraded at least one weapon. If that weapon is the pistol or machine gun then it's the most effective against the doc. Stock up on first aids and eve hypos and then use as much antipersonnel rounds as possible on the doctor. Use an electro bolt blast to stun him and then blast away at his health until he falls. Search his body for items!

Defeating Peach Wilkins

Peach Wilkins is the boss you face after Dr. Steinman. When gaining access to Fontaine Fisheries, Peach Wilkins will attack you with heavy firepower. Stock up on all kinds of ammo, especially grenades as well as eve hypos and first aids. Hit Peach with an electro bolt to stun him and then use your grenade launcher and shotgun rounds. keep doing this and Peach will go down easy.

Defeating Sander Cohen

After you help Cohen create his masterpiece, he'll grant you access to the tonic in the glass case. If you want the item chained up next to it, attack Cohen. Cohen is a Houdini Splicer and must be dealt with using Incinerate, Electro Bolt, and Steel-tipped crossbow bolts. You can also use Telekinesis to catch his fireballs and throw them back at him. Use incinerate to hurt him. Then use the crossbow to hurt him and electro bolt to stun him. If you do it correctly you can beat him quickly and without losing much health.

Defeating Atlas

At the end of the game, you must face Frank Fontaine, aka Atlas. Before fighting him, stock up on first aid kits. EVE hypos and plenty of grenade and crossbow ammo, mainly frags and steel- tipped arrows. Save before taking the elevator up because there's no vita-chamber in fontaine's lab. When you get up there, stab Fontaine with the needle. Then the fight begins. Your steel-tipped bolts will do the most damage. Hit Atlas again and again while using Winter Blast and then Fontaine will go back to the chamber where you must stab him with the needle again. Now Atlas will be made of ice so use Incinerate and more steel- tipped bolts. Atlas will now call on security bots. Shoot the bots down or hack one and let it fight with you. After you damage him, stab him once more with the needle. Now Atlas returns again with Leadhead Splicers helping him. Use the frag grenades to take out the Splicers and Atlas with ease and any RPGs or Proxy mines you may have left. After hitting him with the needle once more, Atlas will fall and you will receive 100 gamer points for defeating him.

Taking The Right Photos

Make sure your VERY FIRST photo shot of each creature type is an "action!" shot. You'll get a bigger bonus. For an action shot, snap a photo while they're attacking you. If it's out of focus, don't panic - try again. Note: if you didn't get an action shot, you might get penalized for trying multiple photos of a creature type.

Icing Those Big Daddies

This is a super quick, super clean method for defeating those pesky Big Daddies, without losing any health! First, make sure you have a substantial amount of liquid nitrogen ammunition for the chemical thrower, and a suitable weapon for owning the monster such as explosive buck or armor piercing machine gun rounds. This shouldn't be an issue, as there is generally more ammunition than you can use strewn about Rapture. With these weapons in hand, you should be able to freeze the big daddy with liquid nitrogen, switch to your shotgun, squeeze off a couple of shots, and switch back to the chemical thrower to keep the beast from thawing. If you continue to switch between the two guns, the big daddy will stay immobilized and shatter within seconds, thus making the game's most grueling and arduous fights extremely simple. Do it correctly and you won't need to use a single health pack! This may also be possible (if somewhat harder) with a higher level winter blast plasmid, although this will definitely drain a large amount of EVE. The downside to this tactic is you won't be able to loot the corpse after the fight, although this only means you'll be missing a few dollars.
