The Radar Range is a weapon featured in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea.


Described as the "Oven of the Future", Radar Range was a powerful microwaving device created by Fontaine Futuristics. It uses microwave energy beams to heat up food and cook it; however, the device was much stronger than intended and could be used to cook unfortunate civilians if turned against them.

Using Radar Range on Splicers will cause them to heat up and explode. Any enemies that are too close in proximity to an enemy when it explodes will suffer splash damage. It should be noted, however, that the weapon speedily burns through ammunition for as long as the trigger is held. The Radar Range is acquired in the basement of the Bistro at Fontaine's after unlocking the storage closet it's placed in.

To unlock the storage closet, the player must learn the code by finding the Oven of the Future audio diary.



  • Burns through ammo quickly
  • Collateral damage caused by this weapon will not count towards the achievement/trophy Confirmed Luddite (awarded for destroying ten turrets).

The Radar Range is available as a weapon for Elizabeth in Episode 2 as well and has the same function. The Radar is located in the Control Room at the Service Bay in Bathyspheres DeLuxe. However, If the player uses 1998 Mode, the Radar will not be found.


Behind The ScenesEdit

  • In 1947, the "Radarange", the first commercially available microwave oven, was built by Raytheon. This inspired the name of BioShock's Radar Range weapon.[1]
