BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 2 brings back a favourite weapon of Rapture – the crossbow.


I feel somehow that this is a thing we already knew, but having reviewed the recent trailer it seems we may not have.

According to an image published on GameInformer, the crossbow will have three ammunition types: tranquilliser, noisemaker and gas bolts.

It doesn’t look like there are any trap bolts, as in the first BioShock.

Assuming the gas bolt is non-lethal, it kind of looks like Elizabeth’s repertoire of abilities will be stealth-focused rather than aggressive, which you may find a little disappointing given Booker’s 100% kill-’em-all approach. We’ve asked 2K for more information on whether Elizabeth will be able to open tears in people’s faces of whether she has demurely signed on to the way of peace.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2 arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 25. It’s said to last about six hours and will set you back $15.
