REMEMBER!Edit

Though the Minuteman's Armory can have multiple upgrades purchased from it at once, not all upgrades can be purchased in one game (for a total of $21984), and some may not be suited toward the player's playing style. Consider saving your Silver Eagles for other weapon upgrades, or for Vigor upgrades.

QuotesEdit

  • Ammunition, weaponsmithing, all kinds of deadliness.
  • It's your home. If you don't protect it now, who will?
  • Would you rather be deadly? Or dead?
  • Got empty pockets? Best keep on walking.
  • What are you going hunting for with that? Caterpillar?
  • Desperate times, desperate measures. Protect your women and your treasures.
  • You call that a gun? Heh. That ain't no gun.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The name of this vending machine (and the animatronic atop it) is a reference to the Minutemen from the American Revolution.
MinutemanArmoryPttPConcept

The "Power to the People" Concept.

  • This machine could be considered as the Columbia counterpart to the Power to the People vending machines of Rapture, as they both provide weapon upgrades for the player.
    • In addition, early concept art reveals that the machine was originally called "Power to the People," by Chris Chaproniere.[1]
  • This vending machine looks like the Dollar Bill, with a change of uniform and vending machine colors.
  • Like all vending machines in the game, the Minuteman's Armory can be Possessed to give up a certain amount of Silver Eagles.
  • When all upgrades available have been purchased, the machine turns off.
  • Fully upgraded, the Pistol will become gold-plated regardless of whether the Season Pass has been purchased or not.

ReferencesEdit

Minuteman's Armory vending machines can be found at the Columbian Archeological Society in BioShock Infinite's downloadable content, Clash in the Clouds, between waves and in the hub area. They can only be used once at least one wave has been completed. They sell all weapon upgrades available in BioShock Infinite with the exception of special upgrades granted by other DLC.
