Post Patch Ver 1.1 cheats
Note: v1.1 of the game is required to enable all codes. Some, but not all, codes can be used with earlier versions. This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the files before proceeding. You will need to allow hidden files and folders to be shown in order to edit this particular .ini file. Use a text editor to edit the "User.ini" file found in the following locations: Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\
setgravity <number>: Set gravity; "-1400,0" is default; "0.0" is no gravity
setjumpz <number>: Set jump height; "600.0" is default, more than "1200.0" will result in taking damage upon landing
Summoning Weapons, Ammunition and Items
Create a text file named Weapons.txt with a text editor and place it in the "System" folder in the game directory, which is typically "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. Note: 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.

Unlockable: Good Ending / Bad Ending
There are two possible endings for BioShock that depend on how you treated little sisters throughout the game. If you choose to "harvest" more than one little sister, you will get the bad BioShock ending. If, however, you "harvest" no more than one little sister but "rescue" the others, you will get the good BioShock ending.
Big Daddy Battle
In order to do this, you need the Hypnotize Big Daddy Plasmid and the Natural Camouflage Tonic. All you have to do is use the Hypnotize Big Daddy Plasmid on a Big Daddy so that he thinks you're a Little Sister and protects you. Now here's the fun part - simply find and attack another Big Daddy and your Big Daddy will attack it to protect you.
Big Daddy Kills
When fighting a Big Daddy, use armor-piercing rounds, as they will deal considerable damage compared to regular rounds.
Sander Cohen's Death
Sander Cohen will ask you to take four pictures for him to complete his masterpiece. After you do that, you can kill him at your convenience.
Security Drone Manipulation
Use a blast of the Electric Shock Plasmid to temporarily disable security drones before you do anything else in a room. Then, run up to them within five seconds and hack them! You can hack while the game is on virtual "pause." You'll have security drones on your side for the rest of the time you are in a fight after doing this.
Big Daddy Kills II
Once you get the Grenade Launcher and the Proximity Mines, this technique can be employed. Find a red fuel tank (all over the place), and cover it with about 6 Proximity Mines or so. Next, use Telekinesis to lift the massive explosive device and hurl it at a Big Daddy. This deals massive damage, leaving you with minimal effort to finish the job. Just be careful not to have the bomb blow up before you get there. (The launcher upgrade that deals no damage to you is a great thing to have just in case.)
While using the Telekinesis Plasmid, you can drop the item you are holding instead of throwing it across the room. To do this you must have an item currently being held. Pick up any item, with the Telekinesis Plasmid selected. Using the LT button, keep holding the item, and don't let go of the LT button.
When you're ready to drop the item, press the RB button to open your weapons menu, and in the transition of the weapons menu opening, let go of the LT button. Choose your weapon and the item will drop safely to your feet. If done correctly, the item falls at your feet, instead of being thrown, which makes the item easier to find when you need it.

Free Health Packs
While you can buy health packs at health stations for $10, you can get them for free by simply smashing the machines with your wrench. After a few hits, between 1-3 health packs should lie on the floor for you to grab, for free.
Easy Splicer Kills
For easy Splicer kills, simply use Telekinesis on one to hurl its body at others in the vicinity. This method usually results in a one-hit kill and is especially useful against higher-level Splicers.
