The BioShock 2 Power to the People weapon upgrade locations are vital to getting the best out of your weapons. As we mentioned in our BioShock 2 tips, the key to really maxing out your guns is to upgrade them whenever you can, and preferably focus on a few super powered weapons, rather than upgrading everything a little bit.
There are 14 BioShock 2 Power to the People upgrade terminals in total, and although some of them are sat in plain sight there, some are hidden away. If you miss one, you miss a valuable chance to gain the upper hand on the threats ahead. So. if you want to upgrade your weapons to unlock things like an electrocuting shotgun, a bullet-reflecting drill, or a cluster firing grenade launcher, then follow this guide to all the BioShock 2 Power to the People weapon upgrade station locations in Rapture.
