BioShock: All Trophies & Achievements Guide

Whether you’re playing BioShock for the first time or returning for a replay on a new platform, it’s likely that you won’t know what every single trophy and achievement is in the game. That’s why we’re here to walk you through all trophies and achievements in BioShock.

All Trophies and Achievements in BioShock

There are a total of 66 Trophies and Achievements you can unlock in BioShock. 54 are tied to the main game, while 12 are only obtainable from the Challenge Rooms DLC.

A majority can be unlocked in a single playthrough of the game, but those tied to difficulty settings and the DLC Challenge Rooms can take multiple playthroughs to obtain.

We’ve listed each Trophy and Achievement below, along with an explanation of how to unlock them. However, it’s worth noting there are story elements tied to some Trophies and Achievements, so be warned that there are spoilers ahead.
