How to Beat Atlas in Bioshock

Two Parts:Preparing Your Equipment and HealthFighting Atlas

Bioshock is an amazing game with tons of twists and turns. It follows the story of a man who mysteriously ends up in the underwater city of Rapture. Things go very wrong when the citizens become addicted to a chemical called ADAM that can change their genetic makeup. They take advantage of it and eventually put so much of it inside their bodies that they end up going insane. It is your job to unravel the mysteries that await you in Rapture. As gamers know, mysteries usually mean boss fights, with one of the hardest bosses being Atlas.

Part 1
Preparing Your Equipment and Health

    1
    Have full health and lots of Eve kits. These are crucial to your success as you will need the Eve to use your plasmids and beat him down and the health kits for obvious reasons!

    Equip the "Target Dummy", "Bloodlust", "Wrench Jockey" and "Wrench Lurker" powerups.
    • Atlas will change elements through the fight, so you will need these for your battle. They are the keys to your success.
    • To change your powerups, go to the nearby Gene Bank, turn right and you will see it.

Fighting Atlas

    1
    Drain Atlas’s ADAM. Run up to him and hit A to start the battle. He will knock you back and transform into his fire-element form.
    • You will have to the ADAM three more times after this, but only after you’ve backed Atlas to his restraining table.

    Use your dummy plasmid. This will distract Atlas enough for you to make your next move.
    • Whatever you do, don’t get him too close to you; the dummies will help keep him away.

    Hit Atlas with your wrench. Do side steps while hitting him, that way, you will avoid damage.
    • After dealing enough damage, he will respawn back to his station.

    Drain more ADAM from Atlas. When Atlas’s health is depleted, he will return to his station. He is vulnerable at this point, so take this chance to drain ADAM from him.
    • Each time you drain more ADAM from Atlas, he will come back as a different element. The first was fire; the next two will be ice and electric.
    • When he comes back as an ice element, repeat steps 2 to 3 using your Wrench until you’ve depleted his health. Then drain more ADAM from him.
    • When he comes back as an electric element, repeat steps 2 to 4 until you’ve depleted his health.

    Focus on Atlas. When you’ve drained his 3rd ADAM, splicers will come out to attack you. Ignore them if you can. Just focus your attacks on Atlas until you have a chance to drain his last ADAM to finish him off.
    • With some patience (especially on hard mode), you will be able to combine all these steps together and pull off a full on assault on Atlas, and he will be defeated in no time! Happy hunting!
