BioShock - Plasmid Guide

Obsessed with BioShock? So are we. In addition to the massive strategy guide below, check out all of our other feature coverage for the game:

Now on with the strategy guide...

BioShock's combat is possibly the most unique of any shooter you'll ever play, and what sets it apart are the plasmids - surreal and twisted takes on the usual magic spells. By injecting genetic substances directly into your bloodstream, you gain the power to blast electricity and fling fire out of your arm. You gain the ability to freeze enemies, to turn them against each other and to sic a Big Daddy on them like an overgrown bulldog. Heck, you can even move stuff with your mind. And that's just half of the plasmids available to you.

This diversity means that every battle can and will play out differently. In order to survive in the ravaged world of Rapture, you need to understand all of your plasmid intimately. You must know when to use each one, when not to and how to combine their powers for even greater damage.

In other words, you need our strategy guide and videos. Below, you'll find a video introduction to every plasmid in BioShock and, on the following pages, expert tips on using them to your unstoppable advantage (plus more videos!) Start your genetic evolution... today!

    Sorry poeple on the last comment, I was typing really fast so ill redo it ------------------------------------------ OK, one of two plasmids you got wrong. First, Enrage works EXTREMLY well against Big Daddys, but you have to have Big Daddy hypnotyze. First, hypnotyze a Big Daddy, lead him to another big daddy, use enrage,AND PRESTO, 2 BIG DADDYS FOR THE PRICE OF 1!! Secondly, security bullseye also works EXTREMLY well on Big Daddys, especially in fort frollic. what you do is when you see a bid daddy, smash a window or hack a machine and get the alarm tile, and PRESTO, those pescy machines that are after you go to work on the big daddy! Enjoy!

    This game is the shit. As soon as i got it i didn't turn off my system (PS3) for 13 hours, it was great. Then i went ta bed, woke up, and put another 4 hours on it. This games has everything a game should have to be epic. Good job to dudes who conjered up this one.
