How to add Plasmid slots in Medical Pavillion?



  • This is my second time playing through Bioshock (first was years ago on Mac, now on Nintendo Switch). For whatever reason I don't remember this being an issue the first time I played, or maybe I just didn't care as much but... I can't add Plasmid slots at Gatherer's Garden because I have zero ADAM.

    I am now in the Medical Pavillion and have rescued two little sisters, and I know at least one of them dropped a pink hypodermic needle item of some kind that I was unable to pick up, even when attempting to interact with the A button as I walked over it. (Was this ADAM? Why couldn't I pick it up?)

    I remember most of the story of this game, but details of the game mechanics are somewhat hazy in my memory, so I'm like a beginner all over again in that regard.

    What am I supposed to do? It's frustrating that out of the four abilities I should have, I only have two because I have not been able to expand my slots.

    Update: Also, due to currently having the "wrong" plasmids equipped (neither are Fire), I can't melt the second frozen over area to progress beyond the Medical Pavillion. If anyone knows which objects can be ignited with the nearby torch please let me know, because I have the Telekinesis plasmid and can levitate objects up to the torch. So far nothing I've put to the flame will ignite, not even a corpse (go figure, they burn when alive but not in death).



  • As https://gaming.stackexchange.com/q/15735/108916 has as an https://gaming.stackexchange.com/a/15738/108916 by https://gaming.stackexchange.com/users/249/rawling :

    You need to find a http://bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Gene_Bank in order to change your equipped plasmids or gene tonics.

    ...

    And as https://www.reddit.com/r/Bioshock/comments/mln4nb/stuck_in_medical_pavilion_due_to_plasmid_change/gtn483b/ says:

    Twilight Fields is actually optional, you can always come back to this level.

    To switch plasmids, you need a Gene Bank, but the first Gene Bank is in the next level, Neptune’s Bounty.

    You can get out of the Bathysphere, Gene Bank, and get back in and return to Twilight Fields.
