Arms Race is a Gene Tonic in BioShock 2 which increases the amount of ammunition found when looting containers and bodies.

Arms Race

Minerva's Den Edit

Can be purchased for 60 ADAM in Gatherer's Gardens in levels from Operations onward.


  • Arms Race is particularly useful for Little Sister's ADAM corpse gathering, as a great number of Splicers (amount increasing progressively throughout levels) will be constantly attacking you. This minimizes the need of visiting vending machines to stock up after a fight, and will give the player an advantage if an impending Big Sister fight arises.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The Arms Race tonic exists in The Protector Trials, but it is completely useless, as there are no lootable containers and bodies are un-lootable.
