Barrage Automatons are a type of Basic Security Automatons featured in BioShock Infinite and its downloadable content Clash in the Clouds. Usually appearing by pairs, they are only present in a few parts in the game and fire a barrage of rockets upon spotting a target. They cannot be possessed like other automated systems in Columbia.

Barrage Automatons appear for the first time at the Bull Yard, guarding the entrance to the Bull House Impound in Shantytown. Another is later encountered mounted under a Security Zeppelin during the Vox Populi assault on the Factory, and they are seen again mounted on the Vox gunships as they attack the command deck on the Hand of the Prophet.

Behind the Scenes[]

Rocket 2

"Rocket Turret" from the E3 2011 Gameplay Trailer.

  • In the E3 2011 Gameplay Trailer of BioShock Infinite, in which Booker must destroy a Security Zeppelin, a weapon similar to the Barrage Automaton is seen, named the "Rocket Turret", which can be summoned through a Tear.
  • The Barrage Automaton lacks an ammunition feed system. It is unknown if this is just an artistic oversight or an indication that something other than rockets are being fired.
