Most broken/OP weapons/plasmids. Give reasons

Just like the topic title says. What, in your opinion is the most broken weapons and skills to use.

I haven't played this yet so I have nothing to add, but I'm thinking things like natural camouflage, security bullseye and the crossbow were all pretty great

huh? not sure what you mean by broken, but if you mean what I think you mean then none of the weapons/plasmids are really broken... if I had to pick one I guess hypnotize (or w.e the one where you get splicers on your side) because sometimes they'll still attack you or will just stand there.

Besides that I didn't find anything about this game "broken". Although I haven't played the multiplayer.

Broken as in so powerful it kills all difficulty

Electrobolt + Speargun is still a ridiculous one two punch, though you don't have to rely on it quite as much in this game with how much more balanced the weapons are compared to Bioshock 1.

I can't think of anything really game breaking off the top of my head, though Security Command + Handyman can be situationally overpowered. I killed a couple Big Sisters without getting hit by just hiding behind my bots, repairing them and giving supporting fire as needed. Channeling level 3 plasmids with the machine gun (or anything really) can be pretty potent, but incredibly resource draining.

It's not conventional, but the Rivet Gun was my go-to throughout the game. Plentiful ammo, and it basically one-shots all splicers (save brutes, of course), provided you get headshots.

Insect Swarm, especially after you get Eve Saver1/2 + Drill Specialist

You just spam the hell out of it and it wipes everything around you. You don't even need to aim or move.

As for big sister/daddy/alpha you just use winter storm + whatever.

Easily the decoy plasmid. Once upgraded it makes battling enemies a laughing stock.

I was surprised to see that I had the same conclusion as others - mostly b/c I'm not a great gamer and so I tend to find things that are broken to a skilled player to be reasonable to me.

What I'm referrring to is that no one thing is broken. One thing I adored about both B1 and especially B2 is how fun it is to use literally every weapon.

With that said, I think there are a couple ways I often employ to just steamroll my way through the game, even on its hardest difficulty: if I'm looking to save myself from taking damage, I'll use Insect Swarm and pick the baddies off from afar with the spear gun or, if I'm looking to just be a glass canon, I'll usually try and plan - I felt there were explosive tanks all over the place in B2 and I'll telekenesis + rocket launcher + inferno to keep the party goin.
