An EVE Hypo, as seen in game.

An advertisement for an EVE Hypo.

EVE Hypos are single-use, restorative items in the form of a hypodermic needle used to replenish EVE, which is needed to use Plasmids. Injected directly into the user's body, an EVE Hypo fully restores the player's EVE supply. They are commonly available from the Circus of Values vending machines, or can be found simply lying around Rapture.

In BioShock, the player can carry up to nine EVE Hypos. When switching to using Plasmids, they can press the square button to “reload” their EVE.

In BioShock 2, the player can carry up to five Hypos, although it is possible to upgrade this capacity to six by using the EVE Expert Gene Tonic. The function to manually “reload” EVE with the syringe has been scraped, and will automatically “reload” when they use their entire bar of EVE.

Behind the Scenes[]

The real world replica.

  • As seen in the BioShock Developer Walkthrough, the early design of the EVE Hypo resembled the version in advertisements throughout Rapture, with a cleaner appearance, a purple-like liquid instead of a blue fluid, and an apple that was bigger with a large leaf and bent stem.[1]
  • In the game, the EVE Hypos have an indistinguishable fine print under the label. On the EVE Hypo Replica, the fine print is revealed to say:[2]
