Unlimited Money Cheat:
Location: Mid-way through the campaign, at "The Hall of Heroes" area. At the right side of "The Hall of Heroes" is a vending machine that you can use your Possession skill on again and again, in effect giving you unlimited money! To use Possession more than once on the same machine, you’ll need to enter the big door between the two adjacent areas in front of "The Hall of Heroes" to both refill your Magic and then return to the previous area again to reset the area. This allows you to Re-Possess the same vending machine an unlimited
number of times until you have enough money.
Unlock 1999 Difficulty Mode:
At the main menu, press Up(2), Down(2), Left, Right, Left, Right, [Esc], [Enter] to unlock 1999 mode. Alternately, successfully complete the game. In 1999 mode, the game is more difficult. You must stick with the specialization you choose, and your actions will be ruled by that choice. Ammo is scarce, and health is more important. If you die, you must have the proper resources needed (like money) to revive, or the game will be over. The mode's name is a reference to System Shock 2, one of the precursors that inspired BioShock,
which was released in 1999. Note: Enabling this code will unlock the "Should Auld Acquaintance..." achievement, and will not prevent other achievements from being unlocked.
Infinite money and lockpicks:
In the "Return To The Hall Of Heroes" chapter (approximately two hours into the game), immediately after exiting the Hall Of Heroes and going down two sets of stairs, possess the Dollar Bill vending machine on the left side, and take the Silver Eagles. Then, go down another set of stairs, and use the right Sky-Line. Jump onto the platform on the right from the Sky-Line, and grab the lockpick on a wooden plank under the stairs. Next,attach to the Sky-Line again, then go down to the next Sky-Line below. Jump onto the platform at the bottom, and go into the nearby "Ticket" building to the left of the gondola station. Inside, there is a Dollar Bill vending machine, near a "Patriot's Pride Confections" sign, and three cash registers (two behind a door you must first use a
lockpick on) that contain up to 40 Silver Eagles each. Finally, return to the Hall Of Heroes, and refill your salts (if needed) with the Salt machine (can be refilled unlimited times). Go back outside, and the Dollar Bill vending machines can be repossessed and the lockpick will have respawned. The cash registers will also have money in them again. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Note: If you kill the enemies in front of the Hall Of Heroes, they will not respawn, allowing you to keep farming without having to deal with the enemies. You should not need to collect more than 30 lockpicks. Use the gear that makes you 50% faster after jumping from a Sky-Line to make farming faster. There are also a lot of vending machines around the entrance to the Hall Of Heroes, allowing you to level up your magic and weapons.
In the "Ticket" building bythe Soldier's Field exit, there are three cash registers (two behind a door you must first use a lockpick on) that contain up to 40 Silver Eagles each. They will respawn every time you enter and exit the area.
All collectible locations:
Search the indicated locations to find all 142 collectibles in the game (80 Voxophones,25 Infusion Upgrades, 37 Telescopes and Kinetoscopes). Obtain all 142 collectibles to get the "Eavesdropper", "Infused With Greatness", and "Sightseer" achievements. Note: You can use chapter select to replay chapters after completing the game so you can pick up missing collectibles. However, there is no collectible counter per chapter/area, and every time you replay a chapter, the collectibles will respawn. Thus, there is no way
to tell which ones you already found -- so try to obtain all collectibles in the correct order.
The following Vigor combinations can be used. Use the following eight Vigor combinations at any time, against any type of enemy, to get the "Combination Shock" achievement. Note: If you restart checkpoints, your progress will be saved. Thus, keep restarting checkpoints if you are out of salts.
