BioShock Walkthrough - Olympus Heights

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 1. You start here in Tenenbaum's Safehouse, surrounded by playful Little Sisters. If you've been harvesting the Little Sisters, their dialogue options include phrases like, "He's the one who hurts us." Otherwise, you'll hear, "He's the one who saved me."

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 2. Here's a map of the level. All maps can be viewed on the maps page.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Turn around to find a First Aid Kit. Search the room for a Supply Crate and an EVE Hypo. Cash can be seen under the pillow on the left. Follow one of the Little Sisters up the stairs on the right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 4. When you reach the top, find a Lockbox in the far-right corner.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 5. This Trunk is also searchable, but turned up empty for me. Continue through the secret door ahead once the Little Sister opens it for you.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 6. Ascend the stairs and find a Storage Crate and this Gate Crank Socket, missing a component.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 7. Find what you need in this corner - the Gate Crank. Coffee and snacks are also here, plus another Supply Crate. Fontaine uses his mind-control powers to weaken your health.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Place the Gate Crank on the socket and turn it to open the gate.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Ascend the ramp and snipe a pair of Splicers. A corpse and a safe are in the overturned trolley, and steamer trunks are to the right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 10. A pair of corpses and a machine gun turret are behind this wall. The Rosie seen ahead demolished the turret after being struck by a stray shot.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 11. Continued Rosie research produces improved loot.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 12. Beware a security camera on the right, across from a Health Station. I accidentally tripped the alarm but with Security Bullseye was able to direct the bots' attention to the Rosie. Using Enrage! on the area's Splicers added more damage.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 13. Find SuChong's Mozart Of Genetics audio diary on this bar, along with cash and plenty of hooch to satisfy my Booze Hound. An Ammo Bandito and Circus of Values are also in this area, known as Central Square Bistro.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 14. A little Electric Gel and this Elite Rosie is riveted. Note the Gatherer's Garden far/right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 15. I purchase the newly-available Speedy Hacker 2 Engineering Tonic, along with Health and EVE Upgrades. This makes hacking much easier.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Continue advancing down the street toward Mercury Suites. The long avenue is perfect for Crossbow sniping. Switch to the Machine Gun with Antipersonnel Auto Rounds if things go bad.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 17. The trolleys almost always have loot inside, and Machine Gun Rounds can be found atop this pedestal.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Several Splicers guard the entrance to Mercury Suites. Lure them out rather than rush in -- there's a security camera just inside and to the left that you don't want to trigger.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 19. Once inside, hack the camera and find a corpse and Bandages behind this counter.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 20. You'll emerge in this open area with an elevator that you can't use - yet.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 21. You'll need to secure this central stairway area first. Again, the Crossbow is my alpha-strike choice. Sniping is a natural tactic against the Splicers on the overhangs.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 22. A security camera is seen just under the stairs, making Security Bullseye a viable option. Note the Health Station on the right, and a Power To The People Station is just visible to the left.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 23. I choose Grenade Launcher Damage Immunity. Note the Circus of Values on the right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Your first stop is SuChong's apartment, found behind the Circus of Values.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 25. A Thuggish Splicer is in the kitchen to the right, and a Leadhead is in this room on the left, along with SuChong's audio diary Fontaine's Human Jukebox.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 26. The central area of the apartment is flooded. Here in the library you'll find SuChong's Mind Control Antidote audio diary and the Clever Inventor Engineering Tonic. Don't miss the storage crates to the left, or the steamer trunk in the far corner.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 27. Return to the central hallway and ascend the ramp all the way up. Be careful of this security camera at the top.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 28. You want to get to Tenenbaum's apartment, but the barricade seen on the right is blocking that route. You'll have to follow the hallway around.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 29. On the way there you'll pass this apartment, which is completely optional. Two Leadheads, a Thuggish and Nitro Splicer protect very few supplies.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Around the next bend is Paparazzi's crucial audio diary, Fontaine's Breakup, which reveals the elevator code, 5744. Plenty of film is also here, and a U-Invent is behind you.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Defeat this Thuggish Splicer then enter Tenenbaum's apartment through the demolished bathroom wall ahead/left. A Health Station is just visible ahead, and a First Aid Kit and EVE Hypo are in a trapped area by the bathtub.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Bandages, a corpse, and this Thuggish Splicer are in the next room.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 33. Find the apartment ransacked by Fontaine's men. An EVE Hypo, a Proximity Mine and cash are in this room. Tenenbaum alerts you that Lot 192 is likely in Fontaine's penthouse.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 34. Descend the nearby stairs and defeat this turret. A safe can be seen to the right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Smash the lock on this door and defeat the Leadhead Splicer on the other side. Find yourself back in the central hallway, but now you're on the second floor.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Also on this floor is another abandoned apartment, the scene of a family suicide. An EVE Hypo is to the left, a Thuggish Splicer guards a safe, and snacks can be found on the daughters' bodies. Napalm is in the kitchen, and the bathroom holds a First Aid Kit, an EVE Hypo and Film.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 37. You'll soon lose control of your Plasmids, so if you haven't already dealt with the level's two Little Sisters you might want to take care of them now. Harvesting Little Sister #2 brings me to 250 ADAM.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 38. I also choose to tackle a pair of optional apartments before heading to Fontaine's apartment. I find the lack of Plasmid control to be very annoying and try to minimize the time spent Plasmid-handicapped. If Fontaine's mind control has your health critically low, you might want to go straight to his apartment. Otherwise, let's visit Anna Culpepper's place on the first floor.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 39. Hack a security camera and snipe this Nitro Splicer on the stairwell. A Thuggish Splicer is in the kitchen protecting Liquid Nitrogen, a Health Station, Coffee, cash and whiskey.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 40. Sullivan's creepy audio diary Artist Woman is found here. Spot the entrance door on the right for reference.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 41. Brandy, cash, a Steamer Trunk, plus this EVE Hypo and First Aid Kit are found upstairs. A Thuggish Splicer is in the nearby bathroom.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 42. Your other optional apartment is Sander Cohen's place, found on the eastern side of the first floor.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 43. A Thuggish Splicer, Liquid Nitrogen and Napalm are on the left. Snacks are in the kitchen to the right. This door seen on the right is locked, and will remain so if you killed Cohen previously. A storage crate is in the room to the left of the dancing couple. Booze, a Steamer Trunk and a desk are in the room to their right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Disturb the couple by playing the piano or toppling their victrola and they'll attack you, followed by Cohen through the previously-locked door.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Take the Muse Key from his corpse to return to Fort Frolic later and obtain decent loot. Be sure to take his photo for the Irony Achievement.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Head through the now-unlocked door and ascend the stairs to earn the "Found Cohen's Room" Achievement. Upgrade your weapon at this bonus Power To The People station -- I chose Shotgun Rate of Fire. Loot the room for supplies, including plenty of Moonbeam Absinthe.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 47. Return to the central hallway and enter code 5744 to access Fontaine's private lift.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 48. This is a tough room but Enrage! and a bit of hacking will see you through. A machine gun turret and a security camera make for better friends than foes. Fortunately, a Health Station and a Vita-Chamber are also here.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Head through the door beneath the security camera and enter Fontaine's foyer. Before ascending the stairs, enter the room on the right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 50. Find Fontaine's Sad Saps audio diary here. Bandages and snacks are in the nearby kitchen.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 51. Ascend the stairs and keep right to defeat a turret and find enough alcohol to keep your Booze Hound happy for quite a while. A safe can also be found here.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 52. The rooms to the left of the stairs are where the real action is. Remove the bolt traps to access this Electric Flesh 2 Combat Tonic. Grab the Lot 192 seen on the right to update your goals. A Napalm-carrying Chemical Thrower is farther right.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 53. You've now got your health restored to its previous maximum, but you no longer have control over your Plasmids.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 54. Arm your favorite weapon and keep it loaded. The place is now crawling with Splicers and you need to backtrack all the way to the beginning of the level.

BioShock Walkthrough Screenshot 55. Follow the signs to Point Prometheus and use the bulkhead to enter Apollo Square. Note the randomly-equipped Insect Swarm 3 active Plasmid. This is the only time you'll see it equipped in this walkthrough -- the hand animation gives me the willies.
