After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. BioShock forces you to question the lengths to which you will go and how much of your humanity you will sacrifice...to save your own life.
BioShock is loaded with some of greatest, most modifiable weapons to ever blast their way into a shooter. But guns alone won’t be enough to defeat the devious AIs of Rapture. There are literally hundreds of other strategies players can use to take out his enemies. Here’s just a few things you can do a foe:
Catch his Grenades in Mid Air and Toss Them Back at Him
Freeze Him Solid and Shatter Him with Smack of your Wrench
Lead him and his comrades to water and Zap them all with 1000 Volts
Burn Him Up With Home-Made Molotov Cocktails
Booby Trap Healing Machines and Watch Them Blow up IN his Face
Brainwash Him to Become Your Personal BodyGuard
Invent your own Ammo Types to Prey on his Vulnerabilities
Turn his own Security System Against Him
Light Him on Fire and Launch Heat Seeking Missiles At him
Torment Him with Plagues of Insects
Take Research Photos of Him to Learn his Weaknesses
Send Him Flying into the Ceiling to Knock him Senseless
Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival.
Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment.
Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities.
Explore a living world powered by Ecological A.I., where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience.
