comment Are weapon upgrades permanent or just for that particular instance of a gun?
I mean the 50% durability, upgrade level 1 pistol you had in your inventory stays that way when you drop it, and the next pistol you pick up might be a 20% durability upgrade level 0 pistol. If you used an Epstein device to upgrade a weapon, it would only upgrade that one weapon, while if you increased your upgrade skill you could upgrade any weapon you found with that skill req, but it would take you time and money. Bioshock Infinite is really just upgrading weapon skills, not the weapons themselves! (or, are you upgrading every weapon in the game?)

comment Are weapon upgrades permanent or just for that particular instance of a gun?
Right, I played a lot of System Shock 2, where each weapon is distinct in its maintenance/upgrade state so I thought the same might apply here, but this is not the case! :) I assume 1999 mode doesn't 'fix' this?

comment How can I find a thief (ideally without Bukkit)?
Can you assign a strange damage value to an item which doesn't normally use it, then track the stolen item that way?

comment What will the Terran Point Defence Drone work against?
It doesn't work on Hydralisk melee attack, I think.

comment What's the penalty for dying in Bioshock 2?
If you die while harvesting Adam your little sister will be waiting outside the Vita-Chamber and you will have to start harvesting again from scratch.

comment How can I beat the final boss in Faster Than Light?
Killing the crew isn't such a big problem, it means your boarding party have free-range on the ship to keep all the systems down and do 1 hull damage each time they are repaired. Just don't kill the O2 unit!

comment PvZ double Stargate - does it work and how?
Remember that as soon as the zerg sees your void rays, they'll start mass producing queens and drop some spore crawlers. Most pros that do air toss seem to attack with 1 void + 2 phoenix which lets you destroy 2 queens very easily.

Heimerdinger's Grenade also reveals Brush if you throw it inside.

comment Does crew headcount or race influence oxygen usage?
If you turn of O2 and have all doors shut, oxygen will only deplete from rooms with people in, correct? Can you get more O2 time by leaving people in rooms until they go red, and then moving them to a new room? Based on your results does crewmembers / room not make any difference in this case too?

comment How do I defeat these 12-15 Thin Men and the commander?
What happened to just staying inside the skyranger and clicking "lift-off"? UFO:Enemy Unknown FTW!

comment What are the consquences of poisoning the Bottle Street Gang's elixir for the Gentleman Callers quest?
When I returned to the distillery for the Golden Cat mission, there were three weepers locked up outside the distillery. In addition a wave of weepers attacked the distillery as I was leaving. (This was after poisoning the still.)

comment Uplink: Hacker Elite gateway upgrade problem
@kotekzot I've never played Onlink. Uplink definitely has a Gateway with a wireless connection to the modem, so if you get traced they can't find your gateway. It doesn't protect you from a bank job trace to your account, however.

comment Uplink: Hacker Elite gateway upgrade problem
* only exception is the remote access gateway which provides some safety from traces without additional purchases.

comment How does spell cooldown system works?
I think I remember having an item which granted +1 level 1 spell slot in one of the BD games...

comment How can I counter alien grenades?
Are they throwing the grenade into the skyranger, or into your troops who are all clumped together at the bottom of the ramp?

comment Are heavy cannon and auto-cannon still tactically advantageous after acquiring the laser rifle?
HE ammo on auto-fire from an auto-cannon is very useful. You can use it to take down small buildings to get at aliens in cover, and to clear rooms in UFOs.

comment Capturing multiple of the same alien
In the original game, Sectoids had jobs, and so a Sectoid Navigator would yield extra info above and beyond that of a Sectoid Soldier. In the origional, getting the Hyper-wave decoder from researching a Navigator early on made your life much easier!

comment Are bosses harder as a stealth-based character?
Its worth noting that the boss fights tend to start with a cut-scene, followed by the boss getting the drop on you. This occurs even if you are invisible and have been looking through walls to check for danger. This is rather frustrating to a stealthy player.

comment Should I persist to try to get in the subway after I broadcast the message In New York?
Just to note that the success/failure of the protecting is based SOLELY on leaving through the main door (Success) or the window (failure). I did the protecting, then snuck out the window resulting in the person I was trying to protect being dead later.
