On this page of the guide to BioShock Infinite, we describe important and useful mechanics related to combining various vigors. Here you can learn about the possible combinations of vigors and what good can come from combining them.
There are eight possible vigor combinations in BioShock: Infinite and using them can increase their usefuleness in combat. Some of the vigors (like for instance MURDER OF CROWS or SHOCK JOCKEY) may seem like they have identical use with only a different visual effect, but that's wrong. If they use only them they may seem similiar, however if combine them together the final effect will be much more deadly.
Vigor combinations are almost a requirement if you're going against many enemies at the same time, because they will allow you to get rid of a lot of hostiles in one swoop. You should also know that testing all of these eight combinations will allow you to unlock the Combination Shock achievement/trophy. Check the table seen below for a complete list.
