Here is a list of cheats for the PC version of Bioshock.

Bioshock is an award-winning first-person shooter from developer 2K Games (Boston and Australia branches). The game was highly praised for it’s unique gameplay, setting, storyline and unnerving mood and aesthetic. As players explore the underwater world of Rapture from a first-person perspective.

Here is a list of PC cheats in the game and how to perform them:
* To add the cheats, you first must create a text file called “Weapons.txt”. Place this file in the “System” folder in the game directory (C:\Program Files\2K Games\BioShock\Content\System).
* In the “User.ini” file used in the “Cheat mode” section, bind the following command to any key exec Weapons.txt Edit the Weapons.txt file you have just made with any of the following commands listed below. * Once you are in the game, use the key you have bound to the “exec Weapons.txt” line. Alternately, you can use Plasmid.txt file if already created and use the same key for both types of cheats. Spawned weapons and ammunition will appear directly in your inventory.
* The game has default maximum ammunition carrying capacities for each weapon (for example, you can normally carry a maximum of 48 standard pistol rounds). Thus if you try to summon 999 pistol rounds with the pistol in your inventory, the game will automatically limit you to 48 rounds. However if you summon 999 rounds before you first acquire the pistol, then you will have 999 rounds available in your inventory.
