BioShock - Plasmid Guide

ENRAGE

What is it?

A bloody, pulpy orb that sends any creature it hits into a blind wrath. As soon as the pheromones - or whatever's in that gross-looking blob - make contact, the target will turn against the nearest living being and begin attacking it mercilessly. 

When should I use it?

First, let's emphasize when NOT to use Enrage. If you're battling a single Splicer, hitting him with this plasmid will only cause him to assault you with more ravenous ferocity than before. Bad idea. Accidentally unleashing Enrage in the heat of a fight is easier than you'd think, too, so choose its location in your lineup carefully when at the Gene Bank. For example, don't stick it between Incinerate and Electro Bolt. Plasmid cycling can get rather feverish in moments of desperation...

In groups, however, Enrage can be a life saver. Mobs of Splicers don't appear often in BioShock, but when they do, it's overwhelming. Splatter one with this plasmid and - bam! - you have one fewer foe and one brand new ally. Better yet, peg them all with the red orb and watch as a blood-soaked, curse-laden cage fight ensues. Just remember to retag the Splicers occasionally if you want the freak show to continue.

A final note: Enrage only affects organic targets, so don't bother with cameras or turrets.

Does it work against a Big Daddy?

With luck and patience. Regular enemies rarely beat a Big Daddy one-on-one, but Enraging a Splicer can still distract him for quite awhile, giving you loads of preparation time. A crowd of Splicers, on the other hand, can whittle away a good chunk of the Big Daddy's health before he dispatches them. Just resist the urge to join in the fun, as the Big Daddy might decide to ignore them and turn on you.

And no, you can't Enrage a Big Daddy against another Big Daddy. Except for special exceptions in the storyline, it's impossible to locate two Big Daddies in the same area. Sorry!

    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.

    OK, on of two plasmids you got wrong. First, Enrage works EXTREMLY well against Big Daddys, but who have to have bid Daddy hpnotyze. First, hypnotyze a Big Daddy, lead him to another big daddy, us enrage,AND PRESTO, 2 BIG DADDYS FOR THE PRICE OF 1!! Secondly, security bullseye also works EXTREMLY well one bid 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!
