This article, Hovercraft , or a section of this article may require overall cleanup.

Hovercraft are airships appearing in BioShock Infinite. Prior to release of the game, they were seen multiple times in various preview trailers, used by both the Vox Populi and the Founders as troop carriers.

Types of HovercraftEdit

There are numerous types of hovercraft, all utilizing a Lutece Particle Lift System to float and move.


Gunships are utilized by both the Founders and the Vox Populi to transport their soldiers, and occasionally provide fire support through an onboard Gun Automaton or a Barrage Automaton mounted on the underside of the hull. With the exception of the launcher on the rocket-firing variant, gunships are virtually immune to small arms fire and explosions, and can only be destroyed by Songbird and Handymen.

Cargo BargeEdit

Cargo Barges can be seen throughout Finkton. They are usually larger than the gunships used by the Founders and the Vox Populi and serve to move cargo in the industrial areas of Columbia.


Gondolas are a type of Particle Lift craft that transport civilian passengers around Columbia. Many move along steel cables strung between two connected locations. Free ranging Gondolas, piloted by Automata, are see as well.


Behind the ScenesEdit
