    Cheats for Bioshock 2

    Bioshock 2: Stanley Poole You might just be in the mood for some classic Decopunk first-person shooter action, yet you either find the game too difficult, your reflexes are lacking or everything takes too long. Seems fighting the Big Sister or a group of Splicers is annoying, and Father Simon Wales is one tough boss.

    That’s where this article comes in. Here, we list some of the popular Bioshock 2 cheats, codes, a link to the cheathappens mega-trainer and some unlockable weapons. Now let’s clobber that big palooka and grab the sister.

    Trainer by

    Cheathappens Mega-Trainer has a free mega-trainer for Bioshock 2. Make sure you choose the right versionyou’re your patched game. There are also save-games to download but you need to be an unlimited member which means paying for a subscription.

    The trainer gives you the ability, via numpad, for unlimited life, unlimited EVE, a 10,000 dollars cheat and much more. First run the trainer then the game, and use the NUMPAD keys in-game. Note that the trainer can “break” the “Lot 192” mission, so disable it before doing it. Some trainer cheats:

    Numpad 5 – 10,000 Dollars to invest in upgrades, weapons and other. You can keep on adding on.

    Numpad 6 – 10,000 ADAM. You can spend ADAM to gain Plasmids, essentially perks which use up EVE, Gene tonics and other things which allow your character to get more powerful.

    Numpad 7 – Kill every enemy, and even friendlies, with one hit regardless of how powerful your weapon is or isn’t. Essentially no different from “God-Mode.”

    Altering the Configuration File: Cheat Codes

    You can make additions to the “DefUser.ini” file if you are having problems with the mega-trainer, which is the same thing. You can assign function-keys (F1, F2 etc…) to serve the same purpose as the NUMPAD keys in the mega-trainer.

    In Windows 7/Vista, go to“C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Bioshock2” directory. Find the “User.ini” configuration file.

    In Windows XP, go to “C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\ApplicationData\Bioshock2.”

    “YourUserName” stands for your profile (i.e. Users\Johnny). Open the “DefUser.ini” file in notepad. In notepad click on “Edit” and “Find.” Type “F1” and F1 will be highlighted. Type any of the following in one of the F keys, i.e. F1=ghost. Here are the cheats:

    igbigbucks – Adds 500 dollars

    givebioammo – Adds EVE to your pool

    givehealth – Refills your health bar

    teleport – Teleports to wherever your cross-hair is pointing

    ghost – Turns off collision clipping, allowing you to walk unperturbed through any object.
