Below Tree Typewriter Model Render

Model render of the Below Tree Typewriter found in BioShock 2 Multiplayer.

Below Tree is a brand of typewriter that appears in various places throughout Rapture, like the Eternal Flame Crematorium. Notably, its brand name appears on various machinery with typewriter-like components in Andrew Ryan's office in Rapture Central Control.


Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The brand name "Below Tree" is a parodic reference to "Underwood," a real-life company which made typewriters in the 1900s.[1]
  • The typewriter model was made by James Sharpe.[2]
  • The typewriters found BioShock 2 uses the exact same model as the Below Tree typewriters found in BioShock, except for the fact that the Below Tree logo/text is absent. However, in the remastered version of BioShock 2 of BioShock: The Collection, the logo/text is visible.
