Tips

Back to top

Ammunition Help

It's important to have ammunition at all times in this game as it's a survival hard. But there are times when you'll notice yourself to have little or no ammo, depending on your difficulty setting.

What I would suggest to you as a tip is, if you are beside a workbench and you have at least one Power Node, use it to increase the capacity in the gun you are low on ammunition with. Once you've done this, it will give you ammunition for the gun (for example, if you upgrade the gun to have 10 bullets in 1 clip, you will receive 10 bullets in the gun). You can do this with any weapon by upgrading the capacity with a Power Node. It's always a handy tip to use.

Peng Treasure Achievement

If you are unfamiliar with this achievement, it's really tough to find. The Peng treasure is located on the 11th chapter of the game. It's in the room where the Ishimura ship landed, and exited the Kellion. It's located between the two walkways. If you look close, you will see the shining object on the ground. Using your kinesis, grab the Peng treasure and press A when available. Voila! Easy achievement, but difficult if you do not know where to look.

Each Chapter Name

This isn't much of an Easter Egg as such, but it's certainly a hidden detail in the game. Just take the name of every chapter from the game and combine the first letter of each.

New Arrivals
Intensive Care
Course Correction
Obliteration Imminent
Lethal Devotion
Environmental Hazard

Into The Void
Search and Rescue

Dead on Arrival
End of Days
Alternate Solutions
Dead Space

Pretty cool eh? Stuff like this in games is always interesting. At least for me anyway.
