Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The name Veni! Vidi! Vigor! is a reference to a quote made by Julius Caesar in 47 B.C. The original quote was "Veni, Vidi, Vici", which means "I came, I saw, I conquered."
  • The animatronic atop the machine appears to be a magician holding a wand. It also has glowing blue lights for eyes, in contrast to the others, which have yellow.
  • The speeches spoken by this vending machine are always in the style of poetry.
  • Charge, Murder of Crows and Return to Sender are the only Vigors that the vending machine doesn't advertise.
  • Veni! Vidi! Vigor! vending machines share certain characteristics with the Gatherer's Garden and Gene Bank vending machines found in Rapture, in that they provide upgrades for the special powers that the player acquires over the course of the game.
  • When all upgrades available have been purchased, the machine turns off.
  • The cost for the Devil´s Kiss Boost, 666, is a reference to the Number of the Beast in the Christian Book of Revelation.

Veni! Vidi! Vigor! 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 Vigors and their upgrades present in the main game right from the start, including the four samples given for free at the beginning of the DLC.

A Veni! Vidi! Vigor! vending machine can be found at the Factory in BioShock Infinite's downloadable content, Burial at Sea - Episode 2, although it appears as out of order. Vigor upgrades can only be found in the DLC as pickable items instead of being sold, thus making the machine purposeless.
