Ironsides is a new Vigor introduced in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 2. It allows the player to capture bullets in mid-air and contain them for further ammo. It is first found on The First Lady Airship, when Elizabeth uses the Tear to gain access to Columbia. Upgrades for this Vigor can be found around Columbia.

  • As ammunition is limited in Burial at Sea - Episode 2, Ironsides is a good way to replenish ammunition.
  • The ammunition captured will be transformed into the ammunition of the weapon the player is wielding while the Vigor is cast.
  • Melee hits will also be transformed into ammunition.
  • Standing in front of an enemy turret while using the Vigor, will give the player a large amount of ammunition.
  • When attacked, the Vigor is used as a great shield.
  • Ironsides uses a large amount of EVE/Salts.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • This Vigor can be seen as a non-offensive variant of Return to Sender, with the additional effect of traps being able to catch and absorb ammo, health and EVE/Salts too.
