A big part of BioShock 2 is exploration and survival, hunting around to find ammo and resources while constantly in peril. Occasionally, you'll come across a door barred by a vertical four-digit lock which you can interact with. Input the right code and you'll be granted access to a hoard of ammo, health, powers, and more that's often better than what you'll just find lying around.

Every door code in BioShock 2 can be found somewhere in Rapture, and it's a satisfying feeling when you're finally able to match up a code to the right door. But since that can be a bit of a hassle if you're in a hurry, if you read through this guide, we'll just give you the door codes, the locations of each door, and what you can find behind them.
