Behind the Scenes[]

Various bolts from BioShock.

  • Game files of BioShock mention an unused type of ammunition called Disease Bolt.
  • In BioShock, all 3 bolt types leave tracers on their path, which are green (Steel-Tip), yellow (Incendiary) and white (Trap) respectively.
  • The Crossbow has been replaced by the Spear Gun in BioShock 2 and so uses Spears instead of Bolts.
  • The Noisemaker Bolts are similar to the Noisemaker Arrows from the game series Thief, which inspired the 1998 Mode of Burial at Sea - Episode 2. The only difference is that bolts only produce sound on impact and cannot be recovered after use.
  • Noisemaker Bolts have their own ammo box model like other types of bolts, but it was left unused since they can only be obtained when picking a lock in the released version of Burial at Sea - Episode 2.
  • The gas from Gas Bolts will shatter any breakable glass it comes into contact with.
  • Elizabeth is not affected by a triggered Gas Bolt, even though she does not wear a gas mask.
