BioShock Cheat Codes and Hacks

BioShock is a first-person shooter, which was first released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, but later won numerous versions on other more modern consoles. In the computer version it is possible to activate codes and cheats that facilitate the adventure, see how.

Cheats for weapons in BioShock

There are two types of cheat lists in BioShock, the first of which involves weapon improvements. To activate these cheats it is necessary to perform a simple edit in one of the installation files first.

Reinforcing: for this reason, these cheats work only on the PC, since, in the versions for consoles, it is virtually impossible to edit installation files, except through illegal manipulations of the devices.

With this in mind, do the following:

  1. Find the BioShock installation folder on your PC;
  2. Open the ContentSystem folder;
  3. Inside the folder, create a text file called “upgrades.txt”, without the quotes;
  4. Open the created file and add the code you want so that it can be used in the game;
  5. Save the file after modifications;
  6. Open the game.

As usual, it is always good to remember to create backup files of your installed game, to avoid losing saved progress and to prevent the game from “breaking” without the chance of being repaired.

In addition, if it was not obvious, it is good to warn that cheats can only be inserted with the game closed. Open the game as soon as you finish adding the codes you want.
