BioShock Hidden Trophies and Achievements

Caution: spoilers ahead.

by Jess Menga


BioShock‘s hidden trophies and achievements are just a few of the many ways the game rewards its players in its unique fusion of story and gameplay. BioShock is a game full of secrets, and the 2016 release of BioShock: Remastered only increases the narrative’s mysterious appeal by improving on the visual storytelling experience, especially as players take specific actions in the game to obtain these trophies/achievements, further immersing themselves in the storyline as the game advances. Whether playing the original or the remastered edition, BioShock is best experienced as a narrative which progresses with each choice a player makes.

Note: The following BioShock hidden trophies and achievements may contain spoilers for some players, as each of these triumphs are directly related to the plot of the game. If you are a new player of BioShock, you should continue at your own risk.
