― Public Address Announcements[src]

Neptune's Bounty (occasionally referred to as Port Neptune) is the third level of BioShock. Jack reaches Neptune's Bounty by the emergency Bathysphere docked at the Medical Pavilion. His objective here is to obtain a Research Camera and pictures of three different Spider Splicers for a fisherman named Peach Wilkins in order to gain entry to the Smuggler's Hideout and escape the city with Atlas and his family.


Neptune's Bounty Sign MP.png

Neptune's Bounty was perhaps the largest port complex in Rapture where the vast majority of the city's fishing businesses were located. Since seafood accounted for a significant portion of the average Rapture citizen's diet and was a highly prevalent natural resource at the bottom of the sea, Neptune's Bounty, and the businesses therein were vital to the city's stability. One of those businesses, Fontaine Fisheries, served as a cover for Frank Fontaine's illegal smuggling operation.

A significant event which happened at Neptune's Bounty was the discovery of the mutagenic Sea Slug, the producer of ADAM. A fisherman with a crippled hand was bitten by one, and Dr. Brigid Tenenbaum noticed the man's hand had regenerated.[1] It was through Dr. Tenenbaum's following experiments that ADAM, EVE, Plasmids, and Gene Tonics came to be developed in Rapture.

As the Rapture Port Authority began to crack down on the smuggling ring, it was eventually discovered who their ringleader was.[2] This culminated in a bloody shootout between Fontaine's followers and Ryan Security. Shocked by the huge number of citizens involved in the smuggling ring, the Rapture Central Council made smuggling a capital offense, punishable by hanging.[3]

In the first few weeks of the Civil War, after Atlas' "thugs" were forced out of Point Prometheus, they ran to Neptune's Bounty.[4] They managed to keep control over the district for some time before finally being defeated by Ryan's forces, after which much of the district was locked up and the remaining smugglers decided to barricade themselves in Fontaine Fisheries for their own safety.


Ryan is judge, jury, and executioner when it comes to smugglers.

Main article: BioShock

Rapture Metro Station[]

To simply hang convicted smugglers wasn't enough for Ryan, who wanted to strike fear into those who endangered the city. The corpses of those hung for smuggling were publicly displayed at the metro station. The body of one smuggler is still there when Jack arrives. There are piles of seized smuggling evidence, a large number of fishing crates, and much debris which almost blocks the way.

A Bathysphere schedule board has fallen from the ceiling, apparently crushing a Little Sister beneath it, based on the trail of blood leading from the debris to an ADAM syringe, the body of her fallen protector resting nearby. In the corridor outside, the floor has collapsed and is partially flooded thanks to a leak in the ceiling. Outside the windows, bodies of drowned men can be seen tangled in the seaweed, gently floating in the ocean currents. In the distance, Jack spies the shadow of a mysterious woman crouching on the ground who growls as he pushes forward and then leaps away into the ceiling.

Lower Wharf[]

Lower Wharf Sign.png

The disused wharfs of Neptune's Bounty.

The Wharf in Neptune's Bounty is by far the largest area. Split into three parts, it was a centre of activity during the day, with the fishing subs of Rapture going in and out to deliver their catch. The sea is visible through huge windows. In the center of the Lower Wharf, Jack can clearly see a massive crane mechanism and giant sea gates which lead out to the ocean. Though disused now, these were most likely used to transfer the Subs into the docks. It was somewhere here that Tenenbaum identified the sea slug from which ADAM was discovered.

Fontaine Fisheries[]

Fontaine Fisheries Logo.png

Fontaine Fisheries. Smuggler HQ and home of Peach Wilkins. Please keep your Plasmids active at all times. Thank you.

Fontaine Fisheries was essentially the "front" for the smugglers in Neptune's Bounty. Appearing as only a giant freezer for fish, it concealed an entrance to the Smuggler's Hideout. Enemies of Fontaine were tortured and killed here before being frozen beneath the ice; when Jack arrives he can use Incinerate! to reveal two of these people, one having tried to write It was Fontaine on the ground before dying. Peach Wilkins continued to run the fisheries even after Fontaine's apparent death, and it became a refuge for him and other smugglers in the last days of the Rapture Civil War. It is here that Jack will be forced to fight Peach and the remaining smugglers, as the man's paranoia about Fontaine's "ghost" unhinges him.

Upper Wharf[]

Upper Wharf Sign.png

Decay lingers around the docks.

The Upper Wharf was used as a cutting, packaging, and distribution area for the docks production, with some fish going to Fontaine Fisheries for freezing. The Upper Wharf is the connection point where the workers can reach the Wharfmaster, the Jet Postal, or the Fighting McDonagh's tavern after a hard day at work.

Wharfmaster's Office[]

Neptune Wharf-Master Logo.png

The Wharfmaster's Office.

The Wharfmaster's Office is the highest floor of Neptune's Bounty and had been used as a police station on the docks by the Rapture Port Authority. When the RPA failed to effectively link the smuggling ring back to Fontaine, Sullivan, Ryan's chief of security, was brought in to regulate activities at the port, enforce the law against smuggling, and take charge of the investigation. Much of the area is filled with evidence films and files. It seems to have been put in lockdown and disuse after Fontaine was killed, Sullivan resigning over the death penalty being instituted for smuggling, and the start of the war.

The Fighting McDonagh's Tavern[]

The Fighting McDonagh's Tavern Lettered version.png

The Entrance to the Tavern.

Fighting McDonagh's was the place for rest at the end of a working day. It has a fancy entrance into a pub/bar area with windows looking out into the sea. Upstairs there were three rooms for anyone who wanted to stay for the night. One of the rooms appears to have been used for interrogation sessions as it contains only a dead man, chained to a bed, along with other trivial items (accessing this room springs a Splicer ambush). The Shorten Alarms Tonic is located in room #7 which was rented by Mr. and Mrs. Lutz as they searched for their missing daughter. A code is required to unlock the room and can be located in the Upper Wharf.

Jet-Postal Substation II[]

Jet-Postal Sign.png

The Tunnel that go to Jet-Postal.

Opposite the Fighting McDonagh on the viaduct walkways is one of Rapture's Jet Postal installations, where post and packages were sorted and many of the mail system's network of Pneumo lines converge. A mail service window and mailboxes are located in the facility. One of the Spider Splicers Peach Wilkins wants to be researched using the Research Camera is located here.

  • This level is one of the locations of the extra Little Sister bug.
  • With the Xbox 360, if the player downloaded the 1.1 patch and DLC and loads the Plasmid Sonic Boom at the Gatherer's Garden, the player may experience the fourth Little Sister glitch in this level. A possibly related side effect of this is that the player cannot pick up ammo, even if the player's weapon is not at full capacity until all of that ammo type has been discharged.[confirmation needed]
  • The First Encounter Audio Diary is listed under Neptune’s Bounty instead of Arcadia.


Behind the Scenes[]

  • In Roman mythology, Neptune is the god of water and the sea and his bounty is the seafood, hence the name of this district of Rapture (the Greek equivalent is Poseidon).[5]
  • The area of Neptune's Bounty that Jack visits during the events of BioShock is listed as Pier 4 on a number of signs on the Upper Warf. This would suggest that Jack only visits the Fontaine Fisheries' pier and that there are larger unseen portions of Neptune's Bounty.
  • Despite the fact that Atlas had originally planned for Jack to go directly to Neptune's Bounty from the Transit Hub in Rapture's Welcome Center, nowhere in Neptune's Bounty will the player find a passage leading to the Welcome Area. There are not even any locked doors or blocked hallways which might lead to other areas in Neptune's Bounty containing such a passage.
  • In one of the lower rooms of Fighting McDonagh's Tavern, a Big Daddy can be observed outside a window. If one were to go into No-Clip Mode (PC/Mac Only) and pass through this window, they'd find this Big Daddy to have fully functional AI. Upon attacking the player, it will return to speeds comparable to being out of the water.

It's one thing starting a war, Atlas, but finishing one's an altogether different matter. Folks say it's only a matter of time before Atlas' entire mob comes out waving the white flag…"
