    My method for beating the final part of BioShock Infinite (completed in 1999 mode)

    Vigors Used
    Possession and Murder of Crows

    Possession was upgraded with Possession Aid, which upgrades normal possession of robots into a possession of humans and robots. Possession of humans makes them assist you until it wears off; where they promptly start to kill themselves with whatever they are holding. Like bludgeoning themselves to death with a bat.

    Murder of Crows was not upgraded, I used it for setting traps to stun/weaken the enemies in large packs.

    Gear Used
    Hat - Sheltered Life: Grants brief invulnerability when gaining health from snacks and health kits.
    Shirt - Pyromaniac: When struck, 50% chance to burn nearby enemies. Victims take 400 damage over three seconds.
    Pants - Urgent Care: Decrease shield recharge delay by 1 second. Increase shield recharge rate by 2x.
    Boots - Overkill: Killing with excessive damage stuns nearby enemies.

    I have included a video to give a visual aid for those who are looking for how to complete the final stage.

    ElyohI didn't worry about using specific equipment or anything like that, I simply used Murder of Crows (Upgraded so kills cause traps to spawn) to take care of the little guys and would just stand behind the patriots and spam into their weak spot. The generator takes a HUGE beating, and even dieing once I still did this first try smile So I definitely agree with the use of MoC, I hadn't upgraded my Possession so it was useless for me at this stage.

    I found a pretty comprehensive guide at that helped tremendously. Songbird management and slowing the enemy to give him time are the biggest keys. I got ridiculously close to saying to hell with this game, watched a bunch of videos, etc., but I beat it after reading this guide.
