Gravity Well is a Plasmid introduced for the Minerva's Den DLC for BioShock 2. It allows Subject Sigma to throw a superdense polyp which then bursts after a moment (upon impact if it hits an enemy), sucking in nearby objects, corpses and enemies into a swirling vortex of destruction.
- When thrown, the Plasmid will bounce upon contact with the scenery, and will only detonate after a set amount of time (around one and a half seconds). If thrown at an enemy, it will automatically detonate.
- Although the Plasmid doesn't deal damage on its own at level 1, enemies will take damage whenever they collide with another object.
- It's recommended to fire this Plasmid in the middle of a group, as it will attract every enemy towards it, causing affected enemies to collide into each other and take large amounts of damage.
- Stunned enemies will be splayed across the floor, making it difficult to land a headshot. Try laying a Gravity Well in front of the target, so that they fall flat on their face and expose it to the player.
- Gravity Well can pull enemies through certain walls, although it won't damage them.
- Avoid firing this Plasmid around if there are friendly Bots nearby, as it will drag them in and damage them too.
- Electromagnetic Locks can be disabled by this Plasmid.
- The EVE Saver line of Tonics reduces the EVE cost of using Plasmids.
- Drill Specialist greatly decreases the Plasmid's EVE cost, but limits the player's weapon selection to the Drill.
- Fountain of Youth restores Health and EVE when in water, which can allow constant (and free) use of this Plasmid.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The game files also list this Plasmid as "Vortex" and "BioGrenade."
- A "gravity well" or "gravitational well" is a conceptual model of the gravitational field surrounding a body in space. The more massive the body, the deeper and more extensive the gravity well associated with it.
