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

GameplayEdit

Described as the "Oven of the Future", Radar Range was a powerful microwaving device created by Fontaine Futuristics. It uses a microwave energy beam to heat up food and cook it; however, the device was dangerous in the wrong hands and could be used to cook unfortunate people if turned against them.

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

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

AdvantagesEdit

DisadvantagesEdit

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

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]
  • Unused game files indicate that the Radar Range had an additional function of being able to power open doors.
