BioShock: The Collection was free to Playstation Plus members last month and contained the three games of the BioShock series, arguably one of the greatest series in existence. This gave players the opportunity to relive the dystopian city, Rapture, in the hopes of finding an escape from the ungodly madness that this underwater city holds. While the game’s story is still as phenomenal as the day the game dropped, the graphics in BioShock: The Collection now matches the game’s story quality.
For those who are unfamiliar with the game, BioShock throws players into an underwater world of madness. Players play as a character named Jack, who’s plane crashes in an ocean near a small island that has an eerie, small, brick building atop it. Jack makes his way to the island and finds an elevator inside. However, as Jack goes further and further down the elevator, things start to take a turn for the worst. Nothing is what it seems in Rapture, and it’s up to Jack to decide what’s real and what isn’t.
BioShock gives players handfuls of collectibles to be found throughout each level. Between powering up Plasmids and saving (or devouring) Little Sisters, the game provides players with hours of entertainment and, for those trophy hunters, loads of trophies to unlock and achieve. One of the best trophies to collect is the Weapon Specialist trophy. In order to unlock this (and the five weapon-related trophies that come before), players are to locate each Power to the People station. However, finding the stations themselves can prove to be a bit tricky. Luckily, the search for the Power to the People stations does not have to be too arduous!
In total, there is twelve Power to the People stations for players to find. There are a mere six guns within the game, and each weapon has two upgrades possible at these stations. Each time a Power to the People station is used, it permanently shuts down, leaving players to search for another station elsewhere. In order for the Weapons Specialist trophy to be unlocked, players must find all twelve of these exclusive stations. Here is a simple breakdown of where to find each station and when the player runs across it!
Note: This guide does contain a few spoilers. Just a warning if new players want to play spoiler-free.
The first upgrade station is found on the bottom floor of the Freezer. Enter Fontaine Fisheries, go straight until players hit a T-intersection, face right, and head down the stairs. Keep going down until Jack can’t go any lower, and the Power to the People station will be right in front of him.
The next Power to the People station is located in the Tree Farm on the Arcadia floor. The Tree Farm is fairly easy to find, as Jack has to pass through it during the story. On the way to the Farmer’s Market and after entering the Tree Farm, keep an eye on the hand left side. The Power to the People station will be slightly backset and between two pillars on the wall.
A third Power to the People Station is found within the Farmer’s Market. In order to reach this station, players will need to search the Winery Cellar Bottom Floor. Head down a handful of flights of wooden stairs until Jack reaches the bottom. Then, head straight ahead to find the station. It will be partially submerged in a pool of water.
The Power to the People stations four and five are both located in the Fort Frolic area. The fourth station is within Le Marquis D’Epoque’s area of the Cocktail Lounge. Upon entering Le Marquis D’Epoque, head straight and go down the stairs. Once players find a U-Invent machine ahead, go right and then turn right. Keep going straight then make a quick left to see a room filled with cigars. Alongside the cigars will be a Power to the People machine.
The fifth station will be found in Sinclair Spirits. Enter the room and turn left, there should be water falling from the ceiling with a door behind it. In order to access the door, head towards the counter on the opposite side of the room. Behind the counter should be a button. Press the button to access the door, then head downstairs. The machine should be right in front of players. However, players should be warned: after using this machine, the eerie stations should start coming to life and attacking the player. The Plastered Splicers do not make any sound and attack in complete silence.
While in Fort Frolic, it’s important to remember to let Stephen Cohen live. While the player does have the option to kill Cohen now, this will later block players from getting the ninth Power to the People station. Let Cohen live, for now, and kill him later.
The sixth Power to the People station is in Hephaestus Core. This station is located across from the Gatherer’s Garden on the southwest corner of the core.
The seventh Power to the People station is in Kyburz’ Office. Players will need a key code to enter the room. Had to the back of the room, the station will be against the wall to the left of Kyburz’ desk.
The eighth Power to the People station is on the ground floor of Mercury Suites. This station is nestled on the back of the center pillar. This station is on the opposite side of the elevator doors.
Hopefully, players let Cohen live and can get the ninth Power to the People station. This station is in Sander Cohen’s apartment. Upon entering, players will see a few splicers dancing in the room. Kill them to make Cohen come out of hiding and attack you. This is the players’ chance to get revenge for what he made Jack do! Take Cohen out and search his body to find a key. This key will give players access to Cohen’s secret apartment and access to the ninth Power to the People station.
This station is located in Hestia Chambers fourth floor. To access the fourth floor, players will need to head to the top of the staircase. The machine is located in a second room within Atlas’s Headquarters.
The eleventh Power to the People station is in the main hall, behind the body of a Rosie. The station is fairly easy to spot as players leave the bathysphere station.
Finally, the last Power to the People station is in the Optimized Eugenics area. Players should locate the Eugenic Analysis station, which will have a few turrets inside. However, in the back of the room not he left side is the last station.
