Bioshock 2 Gene Tonics

The protagonist of Bioshock 2, Subject Delta, has the ability to equip a variety of Gene Tonics to enhance his skills. Starting out with 6 slots, Delta can gain a maximum of 18 slots by buying them using ADAM at Gatherer's Gardens. Gene Tonics can be bought as Gatherer's Gardens, found in the game, and can also be obtained by completing certain levels of research on enemies.

Note that tonics "stack". For example, if you equip both Armored Shell and Armored Shell 2, the effect will be a cumulative of the two.
