As an addition to the Police and Military forces, Columbia features several Basic Security Automatons to help defend its districts. Like any other automaton, they can be possessed and turned against their allies with the Possession Vigor. It is also possible to bring them through Tears, in which case they will automatically fight for Booker and Elizabeth.


Barrage Automaton[]

Barrage Automatons are the artillery turrets, their method of firing is similar to that of a mortar round.

Gun Automaton[]

These turrets are capable of attacking on their own, wielded by automatons in the guise of soldiers of the Civil War. They are armed with heavy machine guns.

Rocket Automaton[]

A variant of the Gun Automaton, shooting instead rocket-propelled grenades at a lower rate.


These Turrets are a flying variant of the Automated Turret, able to float and navigate through the air with the use of balloons and propellers. They are each armed with a Gatling gun and fire rapidly when they spot the player.

Removed Types[]

Rocket Turret[]

Rocket Turrets are placed strategically around the city and can be used to combat more difficult enemies, such as Security Zeppelins. They were removed from the final version of Infinite, and only appear in the game's E3 2011 gameplay trailer.
