Bioshock Infinite Kinetoscopes and Telescopes Locations Guide


Bioshock Infinite is finally released, and it’s really as amazing as we’d all hoped for. The game comes with its own set of collectibles, which include Telescopes and Kinetoscopes.

The Telescopes are few and far between, and all you need to do to ‘collect’ a Telescope is to peek through it using the action button. There is a total of seven Telescopes in the game.

The Kinetoscopes are greater in number (a total of 30), and are basically old-fashioned video players. Use them to get a bit more story context similar to the Voxophones and the audio recordings of the original Bioshocks.
