"Nobody gets even a sip unless I say so! You got it? Anyone who comes near that bottle without permission is a DEAD MAN!!!"
―Frosty Splicer

Frosty Splicers are special Splicers encountered in the BioShock Infinite DLC Burial at Sea - Episode 1 and Burial at Sea - Episode 2. These enemies have consumed a massive amount of the Plasmid Old Man Winter.

Burial at Sea - Episode 1Edit

Frostyattack

The Frosty attacking with his signature Plasmid.

Fontaine Futuristics developed the Old Man Winter Plasmid, but it seems that it never went into wide commercial release. However it was used in a promotional campaign where the buyers of the 1958 model Bathyspheres would also get a bottle of Old Man Winter. When Ryan Security started to come down on Fontaine, he distributed the Plasmid to some of his more expendable cohorts. The Plasmid has caused more severe mutations in its users than one would expect from ordinary Plasmid abuse.

Their most notable characteristic is their frigid appearance: they have pale, discolored blue skin, glowing eyes, and large crystalline icicles sprouting from their arms, backs, knees, and heads. In addition, they possess a long, tousled "Santa Claus" style beard.

Frosty Splicers can make ice bridges from water rushing out of burst pipes. They are also seen battling with other Splicers with the ice balls they throw.

StrategyEdit

First encountered in Jack Frost's Village, Frosty Splicers employ a hit-and-run method of attack. If they spot the player, they will hurl five ice balls in multiple directions and later will dash to the nearest hiding spot. They are very aggressive and won't back down easily.

Recommended Weapons and AmmunitionEdit

Weapons with a large amount of stopping power, such as the Shotgun, are best for taking down Frosties. Any upgrades for these weapons are also recommended. The Radar Range is also highly effective, as it will heat up and detonate them.

Recommended PlasmidsEdit

  • Devil's Kiss is the best Plasmid against Frosty Splicers, due to the fact that fire and ice don't mix too well.
  • Bucking Bronco has its uses against Frosty Splicers, as it prevents them from dodging or even attacking while the effect lasts.

Notable Frosty SplicersEdit

The only known identity of a Frosty Splicer is Ray Lardner. He was chosen, among the employees, by Frank Fontaine to protect his property when Andrew Ryan's forces attacked and was given the Old Man Winter Plasmid. He soon noted the side effects and soon became a Frosty Splicer in the department store prison.[1] He is the first Frosty Splicer the player encounters in the game.[2]

Burial at Sea - Episode 2Edit

The Frosty Splicers will appear in this episode after the player leaves the Silver Fin Restaurant. He acts as any other Splicer, until provoked into combat, walking alone in usually larger parts of the Housewares department.

Recommended Weapons and AmmunitionEdit

  • Frosty Splicers are heavily resistant to the Crossbow's Tranquilizer Bolts. While a single tranquilizer bolt will knock out normal Splicers instantly, one dart only slows and alarms a Frosty. A second dart slows the Frosty further, and a third nearly brings him to a halt. Even this is only momentary, however; Frosty Splicers metabolize the sedative in a matter of seconds and resume normal action. Because of this, it is highly recommended that the player either incapacitate them with the Air Grabber, or use a Gas Bolt to knock them out.

Recommended PlasmidsEdit

  • The Frosty Splicers are immune to both Old Man Winter and Possession, and Ironsides is only usable in Rapture after one returns from Columbia, and the Frosty Splicer is no longer an enemy then. So the only Plasmid which will help the player deal with them is Peeping Tom.

Concept Art for the Vigor Junkies, as seen in The Art of BioShock Infinite.

  • The Frosty Splicer in Burial at Sea is a re-purposed Vigor Junkie, a cut concept from BioShock Infinite.
  • The model used in-game is named Winterblast, a reference to the original ice-based Plasmid Winter Blast from BioShock and BioShock 2.
  • During the battle in Rapture on Ice, normal Splicers can't walk or run easily on the ice rink and keep slipping. The Frosty Splicer, on the other hand, doesn't slip on the ice at all.
